This video clip was a great, great help. So straightforward when you can see someone actually do it instead of just reading some documentation. Thanks for doing these!

Very clear learnt a lot in a short space of time

Very nice. Thank you.

Nice Kexi Combo Box tutorial.

Does Kexi have the ability to specify a fixed item list for the combo box? From what I've seen, it's isting all the distinct field values.

The videos are very interesting, I don't speak English very good but your voice is easy to understand as your explanation is too.

Thanks at lot, because I'm affraid I need a lot of help. Keep working on OpenOffice.Org Base. Thanks again

37. anonymous Wed, 25 Nov 2009 05:06

Very helpful - thank you. If you are looking for specific areas for comment - I'd say that the switches between Design and Edit views are a little confusing. Perhaps it needs a quick summary at the end along the lines "in Design you do A B & C. in Edit you do X y & Z"


36. anonymous Sun, 08 Nov 2009 18:36

As a beginner with Base, I've been searching for days for tutorials and have plowed through several already. This series is the best I've found yet. Thank you!

35. anonymous Fri, 06 Nov 2009 03:01

Really keen to see the rest of the combo box tute however this feedback form is still popping up so I guess I'll just have to skip the rest of it. Definately a shame considering all the effort you've gone to to make this video!

34. anonymous Fri, 06 Nov 2009 02:57

This is

great stuff Dai. Now if I could only get this feedback box to stop popping up at the same place in the video:)

33. anonymous Fri, 06 Nov 2009 02:53

I really enjoyed this one

32. anonymous Fri, 06 Nov 2009 02:52

very good tutorials

30. anonymous Sun, 25 Oct 2009 19:12

Thank you, good stuff. But... what if the data to be entered was a list such as the persons who were to attend the meeting or a list of phone numbers. I can create the tables but cant get the boxes to create the list so how is this done?

29. anonymous Sun, 16 Aug 2009 06:35

Not bad - combobox sounds like it could be a powerful control.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
