  1. Re: Options/Ideas for Mapbox implementation in Windows Desktop App

    That's good, when we looked at this about 5 years ago there were 2 tiers. One free, with a limited amount of queries (50k per year IIRC). One paid, with unlimited queries. Price, 100k . =)

    Re: Ambiguous functions warning

    Several of my colleagues prefer to use expressions over Get, since it can give fewer lines of code. I usually use Get since it's easier for debugging, when you can inspect a variable before use.

    Re: Ambiguous functions warning

    Wow... Yes, it really should either be fixed or made an Error and not a Warning. Try reporting it again?

    Re: Ambiguous functions warning

    Ok, that's pretty nasty. I assumed you reported this? And got the answer it won't be fixed? If so, that's crazy... You don't give a compile time warning for what is an obvious runtime bug...

    Re: Ambiguous functions warning

    Well, the code is 10+ years old, returns the correct value in DF20 and has done so in every earlier version it's been part of. Your basically telling me the below can fail:

    In this case, the code is perfectly safe. There are multiple functions with the same name and different return types yes, but the correct one will always be called. It's just that the compiler does...

    ZeroString

    Hi,

    In the compiler warning message for obsolete command use of ZeroString, it says it's not unicode safe. Is that actually correct, and how does the ZeroString function help as it looks like it...

    Re: External function call problem

    I don't think so, why would I? I'm not passing any strings. And even if I were, you can still call the A versions as long as you pass the correct parameters.

    Even if the W version is more suitable...

    Re: Win 11

    From what I have read, and this may be wrong, it is mostly GUI and app changes and underneath it's the same as Windows 10. So it is basically the same as the twice yearly updates but with a GUI...

    Re: VPE Note printing

    Vincent,



    I thought so too, but if there is a charset it can't be. I just check wikipedia and apparently it's not, 44 consonants and 21 vowels. It does sound like it has some complex character...

    Re: VPE Note printing

    This got me concerned, so I checked what the VPE Programmers Manual said:



    The last line is in both the 6.x manual and the 7.x one, so it's probably not high on the implementation list.

    Unfortunately this did not go as I had hoped. Writing a solution handling 90% of the metadata was quick, but the last 10% has taken more than 90% of the effort. Things like structs with...

    Re: How to use TLS in cClientWebService

    That is correct, you only need to set that it should be a secure call and Windows will do the rest.

    Wil,

    I could not leave this alone, so I wrote a parser. I now have ~600 files. =)

    I'll put it on VDF-guidance once I've cleaned it up a bit.
