    Re: Dataflex 18.2 on Linux Wine?

    I'd be fine with it if I can only get my little stock ticker app to run under Wine. I plan on keeping Windows 7 to run all my music and video recording software, along with Dataflex, and anything...

    Re: Dataflex 18.2 on Linux Wine?

    Thanks Mike. I'm planning on getting one of those 850 EVO SSD drives sometime today and will be setting it up to dual boot. My plan is to take Windows 7 offline and only use Xubuntu Linux for any...

    Re: Dataflex 18.2 on Linux Wine?

    Thanks Chuck. The app I want to run is pretty basic, and not using any deep rooted Windows functions, so I'm hoping it will fly without having to jump through too many hoops. I just want to be able...

    Re: Dataflex 18.2 on Linux Wine?

    Thanks for the reply Stephen. I only want to do this for my own personal stock ticker app, which uses a few grids and scrapes data, so official support wouldn't be a problem since I wouldn't be...

    Dataflex 18.2 on Linux Wine?

    I've about had it with Windows, and am considering making my machine a dual boot Xubuntu/Win7 from an SSD. If I do this, I'll have it set for Xubuntu to be the default OS, but I have a stock ticker...

    Re: Dynamic size for the top level container

    The menubar is pretty much stock, although I removed some things like Navigate, Window, and Help to reduce the width since this is a stock ticker on the side of the screen.

    The other thing I did...

    Re: Dynamic size for the top level container

    Yeah, it uses the standard Dataflex menu with several views for the interface. I hooked into the menu system so that just before the Send Activate to a view, it first does a "Set GuiSize of oMain"...

    Dynamic size for the top level container

    Is it possible to have a view dictate the size of "Object oMain Panel"?

    I've built a stock ticker for kicks that is vertical and lives on the left side of my screen. I allow all views the ability...

    Re: Converting 2.3 app to 3.2

    The parameters are -s -a which means (S)ort (A)ll. The sort utility DFSort relies on the 16 bit DOS extender and won't run on a 64 bit version of Windows.

    Re: Converting 2.3 app to 3.2

    Outfile became Direct_Output.

    That said, if you don't specify a device to do a Direct_Output to, then the runtime will select one of two devices. DFRun (the DOS runtime) will output to LST:,...

    Re: Converting 2.3 app to 3.2

    If your app is already compiled and runs under DF31C, all you need to do is use DFRunCon.exe instead of DFRun.exe DFRunCon is a 32 bit executable and will run fine on 64 bit versions of Windows,...

    Re: Zebra Label

    I did a lot of programming for Zebra printers in console mode, and if they print the code you send them, they are usually not in "Line Mode". I always used "Write" and "Writeln", so I could write...

    I used to use what used to be a free DOS utility called "Print32.exe" with DF31C. Don't know if it's still around, but the file "Print.exe" comes installed with Windows, which might do pretty much...

    Sure enough, using the Windows clipboard solves the issue. Simple as this, and the form still has a currency mask so it is formatted properly. The fkCalc.pkg uses a procedure so the code on each...

    I've seen behavior like this before with DF31C, and it's usually a corrupt .dfr file that causes it.
