I want to use URL Hashing. I also want to pass parameters to an external web app. I see the hashed parameter is named _link and then the encoded hashed value.

What do I need to do to decode that hashed _link parameter in my second app. The sending app is the COT generated one, the receiving app is a .net webforms app.

I have looked at the references I could find and was unable to find a solution. Any suggestions or ideas will be appreciated.

Update: Can I use 'HtmlDecode(String)' to decode the hash created by the COT app?

I have create touch UI app and implemented stand alone login using membership api.I have already disabled remember me option but still once I login and close the window and then just launch the app, it automatically logs me in.
This is disastrous if user1 is working and forgot to logout and user2 comes to same machine and launch the app, due to auto login system is not asking to login but instead already logged in with use1 credentials.

Please advise how to stop this.

Thanks in advance

I need to have my project filtered to be depending in the kind of user profile that the currently user used to login because I can not allow the project to display all the database's data to all users of the project because they do not have to see all but only the little bit that its permision level allows they to be seen.

How can I actually do that?

Hi guys,

With many to many I have two problems:

1. Primary key name changed when creating model automatically and doesn't resolve name on many to many field delete
When creating a model of a many to many table sometime code on time changes the primary key name (specially when it is duplicated word which is commonly used by many to many), then adding records is all good but the delete fail because the primary key name is the many to many controller is different in the database. Code on time should be able to work that out since it changed the name of the primary key field itself.

2. When deleting a many to many option I am always getting The record has been changed by another user. (version

Thanks in advance

Q: In release ,Performance Improvements:
"...Application always counts the number of available rows whenever your access any data for the first time... ... the initial counting has been eliminated when only a small number of records available for retrieval."

Dear Dennis, can you please explain when exactly "count(*)" is called?
I need to disable it somehow for very large table. Otherwise it takes tooooo looong


PS: I'm happy with 8.6.10 and with recent CoT progress in general.

How can I incorporate regular expression functionality in COT? I would like to match a field input using a regex. If the pattern matches, the input is stored to the table otherwise throw an error message back to the user.

I know I am new here and that I dont know good or well this product and maybe my observation is silly but I write this because I fee a little bit afraid when I am reading other questions that other people has wrote here

Why the rush in delivering versions that seems to have maybe aparently too many7 things not working exactly all right?

I am going step by step watching the videos and lerning from them but I am afraid that when it comes my time to produce my own code I will probably, just maybe or maybe not, will have to fase all problesm that I see here and that for the moment I still don't understand because thewy are for now very too complex for me in this moment

When I add new records on a DataView and click save, then the input view are not closed. I can close the view only with 'cancel', and 'Discard changes'.

Unfortunatly every save click adds a new record.

V.8.6.8 not have this problem.

(Dennis: You can login on my app and see the problem.

Please select 'Adressen', go down to DataView 'Leistungen' and insert new records.)

Thanks, Peter

In the latest release all my confirmation controllers started showing a bug.

Basically when the user clicks ok a dialog box is shown with the message N/A briefly and then runs the action and then returns to the form.

when run from a form the confirmation controller form closes when run from the grid it remains open.

How can I set a date into the appropriate field when the user changes the value in a dropdown field? I am trying to get an application to record when a value is changes in a dropdown.

Thank you

Version 8.6.10 - Premium

When trying to save a dataview field I get the error below:

0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'HeaderText' of undefined or null reference

When I debug it in VS:
Unhandled exception at line 102, column 304347 in http://localhost:49860/appservices/co...
0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'HeaderText' of undefined or null reference occurred

Please let me know the best way to report a security hole/bug with the Touch UI framework. (I'm assuming you'd rather that I not post the details here.) I think it affects all versions including 8.6.10. I have implemented a fix which works for me but it'll probably require some work to generalize to all user situations - I can send the updated framework code to you...

With Microsoft changing Visual Studio (VS) version names, there's a confusing mismatch between VS documentation on the Code on Time web site. Could someone clarify?

MS states that Visual Studio Express is now Visual Studio Community ( I also see what appears to be a VS light version called Visual Studio Code (

The storage footprint of Visual Studio Community and its list of features, many of which I doubt are needed for CoT, is enormous! Is Visual Studio Code compatible with CoT? If not, what are the minimum VS 2017 Community features I should select for use with CoT C# Business Rules?

We have an application that is returning a 404 error when the Home link on the bread crumb menu is clicked

The link seems to be http://localhost:54424/index.html in the html it is defined as
per the screen shot, our home page in the app is empty.

Anyone suggest how to resolve, the other home options seem to work ok

Has anyone found a way to provide a lookup that can return a multiple list of values as a single delimited string.

The use case I am thinking of is picking from a list of contacts to use in a CC field in
a modal email form, so there is no underlying database structure.

I think this might have been a similar request
