In Topic: Obtaining a List of Runtime Functions

25 April 2015 - 02:04 PM

Hi Mike,
Unfortunately there is no flag to denote runtime only functions. Developer distinguises runtime only as there is no record in VIPBM01 (VIP Function header file). To find runtime only functions read FUNCTDEF and on read error of VIPBM01 you know that it's runtime only.

In Topic: Positioning On A Field In A Paging Screen Automatically

22 August 2014 - 12:05 PM

Hi Ross,


Also another handy thing to do is to be able to exit the paging screen (possibly to process data and remove records from the paging screen) and then to re-enter the paging screen at the same start and record position as before. Rather than post the details here I have included a simple demo paging screen (attached) which you can download and play with (the vpx or out file contains Function TESTPAGS and a memory file definition TESTPAGING (the data is built and deleted in the function).


Best Regards,


Rob Marshall.

In Topic: Aurora,Telnet Client and Open Client logic check

06 July 2014 - 12:41 PM

Hi Matthews,


You could try Session.DisplayType


e.g. $CLIENT = Session.DisplayType


I know for a fact this returns 'WINDOWS_CLIENT' for telnet sessions and 'OPEN_CLIENT' when connecting via open client. Although I have not tried it when running Aurora.


Hope this helps.

Rob Marshall.
