In this fourth blog the Customer List is the topic. Ehh, a customer list, isn't that too simple for a demo and a blog? Yes and no. A customer list running on the Web Order Customer table is in fact a simple report but as you discover below we have added a couple of features to make the report and integration more attractive. To see the here discussed report in action you should navigate to the live demo website (European Server, USA server). You are also advised to read the three previous blogs

One of the new features of Visual Report Writer version 2.0 will be support of a Runtime Data Source (RDS). A runtime data source is a virtual table that is defined during report definition while the data is supplied via integration. This opens the way to report of data that does not come from a "real" database. In this blog you will read how to make a report based on the filelist.
Start Visual Report Writer and press Ctrl+N for a new report (or choose New Report

In this blog I will show you how you can limit the amount of time that an application can call a webservice function. It is a small contribution to security and helps you against unwanted webservice calls.
A SOAP based WebService call always contains a body section and optionally can contain a header section. The use of a SOAP header section on both the Visual DataFlex server as well as client side is good documented in the help provided with the product. The good

This week two developers asked me about a folderbrowser/selector. Over the years several solutions have been created (fully) using the Windows API. But as far as I know they all do not have the ability to set the focus on a certain folder shown in the tree. And that is what the developers wanted to have.

First of all it is important to find data that let itself nicely present in a chart but you probably have that else you won't be interested in reading this blog. Then you need to decide what kind of chart you would like to use. Do you want a pie, a bar or a line graph? Dealt with this it is time to find a good API, a good tool that you can use. There are many solutions available on the web. For this blog I used
When your Visual DataFlex application makes an external call to a webservice the main program waits for its completion. If the request does not return immediately several things can be the cause. Your connection to your ISP can slow, the webserver you try to reach is busy, can be difficult found etc. If you want your application to continue as soon as possible and know (and this is they unknown keyfactor) that particular call should not take more than a couple of milliseconds to complete you can
UAC, short for User Access Control, the feature built in Microsoft Windows Vista and higher is turned off by a number of users and developers because they do not like that the operating system asks for permission to write or access certain areas of their environment. Building your applications you are however advised not to do this because sooner or later you will install your not UAC compliant application at a UAC controlled PC and that is not goo.
How can you find out if UAC is
