  1. Re: YAFR: Breakpoint on Watch Window Delta.

    I consider {me from more than 6 months ago} to be {other people} and I spend most of my time fixing other peoples code. I'd use this a LOT.

  2. Re: YAFR add "READ ONLY STATE" to dbSuggestion form

    well Vincent Samuel,

    because the normal use case for a Suggestion form is to select from existing data, not to change it.

    also "read_only_State" in DD is ignored if a child save propagates...
  3. YAFR add "READ ONLY STATE" to dbSuggestion form

    I just got bitten because a user decided to change a value in a db suggestion form, and then change the child record. My goto patch was to set read_only_state on the DEO, but it'snot defined for...
  4. Re: YAFR: Breakpoint on Watch Window Delta.

    I believe you're not wrong, but I'm hoping it was so long ago that the decision makers have changed, and a fresh vote may get a better look in.

  5. Re: Preview: oReport has no Window handle

    Yah, I knew where you were coming from, I also guess you just hadn't seen that feature. The other hidden gem is the "Function Expert" on the report tab. has all of the functions, including the...
  6. YAFR: Breakpoint on Watch Window Delta.

    Can we add a feature to the debugger to add a breakpoint when a watched value / expression changes?

    I've a DEU* who managed to find a way to change a pointer that she shouldn't be changing, and...
  7. Re: Preview: oReport has no Window handle

    the DF previewer has a search feature that finds in the report data. IIRC it worked quite well.

    I have a pervasive system with a 15 user CK, but the license key is a 5 user plus a "10 user DAW sent over". BUT I have no idea how to register the CK license? which tool takes these registration...

    Re: Barcode Scanner

    I've only done it with a device that had a built in scanner, or a bluetooth scanner. Basically the scanner pretends to be a keyboard. If it works typing in the text from the barcode, it *should*...

    It's only been nine years, why would you think it's improved? There was a work around...
  13. Re: "HINT" text by Mullan how to design for FORMS ( this time onli for dbForms and Grid columns)

    there were IIRC too many ways where the hint either didn't go away when it should have, or just didn't show at all. I can't remember the details (I caught CRS from Stephen!) I just stopped using it.
  14. Re: "HINT" text by Mullan how to design for FORMS ( this time onli for dbForms and Grid columns)

    That hint form I wrote was an annoying disaster. It had more holes in it than a block of swiss cheese.

    Frank Cheng had a go at it too.

    Is the DR help on-line yet?

    I often find myself in the on-line help, and it's a great tool. I'd like to do the same in DataFlex Reports.
  17. Re: How do I Copy/Paste a PDF file in Windows 19.1

    Archie,

    have a look at "direct_Input clipboard:" and see what you get out of the clipboard when you "read_block channel iChnl -1"

    You may have to muck about with "Binary" and uChar arrays, or...

    Regular expressions.

    to future self. The regex to remove line numbers from a "find all occurances" search is:

    "- \(Ln [\d]+\) "

    Don't include the quotes.
  20. Re: How to use multiple ODBC connections in one DR8.0.1 report

    Depends.

    Multiple Concurrent database connections, maybe not.

    Change databases between reports, easy.

    For item 1. I've never looked into this,
    For Item 2, I do this all the time. ...

    Re: Deployment of Dataflex Reports

    Peter,

    if you build the report with SQL ODBC Driver 16, and the client only has SQL ODBC Driver 14, this kind of thing can happen.

    Yes. That's the idea.

    The initial setup can be a pain, but it's very much a set it and forget it technique, because it reads the required connection information from an open table in the...

    Note to Garret, If you use [ code ] tags [ / code ], (without the spaces) your code displays properly.

    Also, the size of the preview window is persisted in the "save window positions" so when...

    Re: The next hurdle

    Sodding MS removed stored credentials from ODBC connections, so you have to use trusted connections, which opens a whole other slew of issues.

    Use Peter's code above, or mine.
