Some people come here and ask single-line SMS-style question (plus sometimes some random code) and expect "solution" without showing any effort made from their side.
Then all the good souls on this forum hopelessly try to figure out "what the heck original poster meant?"
So please follow the tips below so your question is more likely to get proper answer.
Follow the forum rules first: How to use this site
Please use the search field in this forum, there are high chances that somebody already had the same problem and the answer is already available. If you have follow-up question, reply in existing thread instead of creating new topic.
Make your question clear and provide necessary information
When asking a question, imagine yourself as you were to answer your question.
Is your question clear enough?
Does it include ALL necessary information (, ) that is required for person who wants to help you, to know what the problem is, without seeing your computer screen?
Do not leave the room for the guessing work.
Here are some tips:
- what did you do? (describe everything step by step, include that you used if any)
- what did you expect as a result?
- why do you need that to happen?
- what actually happened as a result instead? (use as picture is worth 1000 words)
- what are the challenges?
Be polite when asking questions. Use proper grammar and avoid spelling mistakes.
Post the code that you wrote
Use code tags so your formula is properly displayed. If the code produces some unexpected output, please include the snapshot of chart or Analysis and explain why do you think it is incorrect
If you want to comment on somebody's else code you need to provide original reference (where did you get the code from)
Give us all the background Information and explain the GOAL you want to accomplish
Pretty often to give proper solution, it is very important to know why you want to do something. Usually there are dozens of ways to achieve the same thing and best solution depends on knowing exactly why you need to do something.
Without knowing the background we are lost in our guesses and assumptions which may be totally incorrect and we will be wasting our time and your time too.
Show your own effort
It is important to state your skill level with AFL and general programming but emphasizing and starting posts using terms like newbie, amateur in return for free code will not help. Instead back yourself up with the research and links to manual and forum that you have read and tested.
