In Topic: ProIV PDF SSO

25 July 2013 - 04:18 PM

Hi jFoon,

Prior to the release of the PDF SSO I spent a month learning Antenna House Formatter (XSL). I found it to be quite finicky when it came to marrying up my XML output with the XSL. It took a lot more effort when it came to making even a small change; a lot of steps.There are many ProIV developers out there that don't have the time or inclination to learn how to use these tools. The beauty of the ProIV PDF SSO is that the learning curve to use it competently is about 5 days. The tool is like a brush, you just paint what you want on the PDF document from logic. So, instead of having to develop the XSL style sheet and the function to produce the XML output you have just one ProIV function. I have developed our PDF invoicing using an update function with just 3 strategically placed logics that contain all the commands I use to create the document. It really is that simple!


We started out using XML/XSL to produce out .pdfs and it is a pain. Using a PDF SSO is much better.

Hello Matthew,
Thanks for that. We'll give it a go and see how we get on.

In Topic: Using BLOB's In SQL Server With ProIV

Hi Marlon,
I can still call the same Java code with MFC using Browser ActiveX control on Proiv V6 to display BLOB on the function but using JBoss or Tomcat.The ActiveX did seem to be converted to Ajax script in Proiv version 7 the last time I tested the ActiveX control on version 7.

You can also call the url within the logic,it displays a separate page.


Hi Matthew,
Thanks for your reply.

I know I can call a URL from within logic (we do that to open another application from within out application), what I was wondering was what is on the URL, i.e. how do you formulate a page on the fly to display the blob?

Hi Marion,

Was you question meant for Matthews or me? We run with the MFC but will deploy some OC in the future.



Hello Ross,
The question was directed at you. We have a solution for MFC that uses a viewing .exe placed in the prog directory. If you need that solution, let me know and I'll send you the ProIV code. One of our guys wrote the .exe so I need to talk to our head honcho about costs if you wanted that.
