    Re: The next hurdle

    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...

    Re: CRXI Viewer

    Of course I saw the date. I just can't resist the temptation to bust chops. How many times over the years have you posted those exact words?.

    Re: CRXI Viewer

    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.

    Re: The next hurdle

    No.

    Not that.

    Not even close.

    You need to intercept the "ChangeOdbcsource" method and rebuild the connection string on the fly, for the database connection currently in use.

    If you've...
  6. Re: Export RDS data to Json for debugging.

    Thanks Marco, I do have that code, but I'd totally forgotten I had it. Much appreciated.

    Thanks Vincent that's what I needed.
  8. Export RDS data to Json for debugging.

    How do I do this again?

    I've got a complex set of tables loading to the report object, but I also need to dump to json to see why it's not behaving.

    How do?

    Re: Print multiple copies

    So are you contradicting the previous post where selecting printer by name requires extra code to pick up the value from piCopies?

    no, it's probably a permissions thing on the DF serial number file created by the registration program. Go find the new dfr file (c:\programdata\dataaccess worldwide\dataflex\20.0\licenses or...

    Re: Print multiple copies

    Please put a case in HDE for this.

    Selecting the printer by name should still allow us to select the number of copies, unless the printer does not support this property.

    If not supported by...
  12. Re: String with both ' and ". Is there an easier way ?

    I usually break it up into sections, and quote the sections appropriately.

    But overall I like the ` backtick and then replaces('`' , '"')

    What version of Dataflex are you working with? That you need to run these reports in?

    If you convert them to 5.01, then you can open that in DR8.0 and just be on your merry way. The code behind...

    Re: DBCJGrid multi line properties

    Cool.

    Personally I don't care how it's implemented, as long as the result can be printed, and i can edit the format of the text in-line. 99.5% of a all the reports I've ever written are in...

    Re: Database design question

    I'd write a "validate Delete" function that used embedded SQL to check for the existence of step children.

    Re: Database design question

    You can enforce a rule in the Data Dictionary (see Cascade Delete ) to prevent a record being deleted if child records exist.

    Code review.

  22. Re: How can I generate a warning, saying "No. out of sequence"?

    If you put it in it's own report section, then it does not take up space while it is hidden. Saves paper!

  24. Re: How can I generate a warning, saying "No. out of sequence"?

    I'd use (Next({table.no})

    in a "suppress" function, in a details B section, after each record is printed

    return (Next({Table.no}) <= ({table,no} +1))

    Thus the warning appears when the...
