  • Form generation problem

    Created a form based on a table created in SC (MySQL).
    Then I run a Batch Creation proc. to create a Grid And Form for that table.
    When I run Grid App it all look fine, but when I open a Form all field labels are gone. I tried to re-import Dictionary but it did not help.

    Any ideas ?

    Just some silly possiblities: do you have a columnwidth set to 1 (pixel) etc. I don't expect it to be a Dictionary problem, but if you go to the fielddetails you can see what SC does. Are the labels gone there?

      Noth "Edit Fields" and "Fields" sections show the labels correctly. When I go to the Application group (on the panel) and click on the fields SC pops up a little window displaying a field properties. In that field the Label is EMPTY.
      I really have no idea why, or how to fix this. Tired to reimport/update dictionary, but no success.
      The only difference with the table in question is that it was created using SC Database Builder (which actually I like to use, as it is very convenient). I don't know if this might have affected SC
      application generator or there is some kind of cache that did not got cleared, ...but I still haven't resolved it :-(

        Is it possible that you have the labels turned off? In Form Settings -> Layout -> Blocks, the second checkbox is for displaying the label of the form field. Is it possible that checkbox is empty? I believe it is ticked by default, but it could have inadvertently be un-checked.

          Travelr - thank you for your suggestion. Here is what happened.

          I checked the setting you suggested and the checkmark under the LABEL was checked, so initially I thought your suggestion is irrelevant, but,....then for curiosity I checked a TITLE (one the left). Regenerate the form and all of the sudden the Labels appeared. When I unchecked the TITLE the Labels stayed but then I discovered another problem. Despite I unchecked the TITLE it still appears on the form. It seems like the form settings do not update properly for some reason.

          Any ideas ?
