    Re: DataFlex accessing .NET

    If you have a handy c# programmer in house it's actually reasonably easy.

    You make a DLL in c#, and then "export" methods that call the underlying .net code. We use it for Active Directory...

    Re: What MS SQL Client softwear do I need?

    Have you seen these links to using a UDL file to test your DB connection outside of your application framework?

    To verify SQL connectivity using a UDL file:

  4. Re: Make sure your subreports have unique names.

    well the report will run, it's just that integration will break. No big deal.
  5. Make sure your subreports have unique names.

    I discovered today, the hard way, that DR really does not like it if your subreports all have the same name. It gets quite messy quite fast. Particularly if you convert a dbms based report to an...

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

    It's a dbsugeestion form. It's MORE than a combo form.

    I want READ_ONLY_STATE to work like it's working in dbforms.

    In particular, after the record is selected, the text can be edited. Grrr. ...
  9. 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.

  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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.

  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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'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*...

  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  25. 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"
