Client Side File Folder Browser

29 August 2018 - 01:37 PM

Hi there,

 

We need a solution whereby a user launches a window from ProIV (ProIV Client, not Open Client) that allows the user to browse folders on the Client side. We only want the user to be able to drill into folders they have permission for. We want them to be able to select a file and have that file copied to a folder on the ProIV server side. We are running the latest version of ProIV in a Windows environment.

 

If anyone can shed some light on available solutions I would greatly appreciate it.

Change Management Solutions

18 June 2018 - 10:11 PM

Hi there,

 

We are running on the latest release of ProIV (8.3.16.17). Last week we had a demo from Andrew Turner (ProIV UK) on the change management system and a third party product he uses called GitHub. GitHub is used in conjunction with JASON ProIV function exports (XML) to manage and document changes to a function. We are looking at starting to use GitHub but first want to see what other users may be using. Can anyone who is using a change management solution like GitHub please let me know what they are using and why they like using it. Thank you in advance.

Google Chrome & OpenClient Connection problem

19 May 2015 - 10:54 PM

Hi everyone,

 

We are deploying ProIV (V8) functions on Windows 7 tablets using OpenClient on Google Chrome. The tablets are connecting wirelessly. During the day some of our users are experiencing the "white screen of death". I.e. they will go to the tablet and touch say a field on the function and Chrome will go white. Sometimes they can refresh Chrome and get the session back but many times the refresh does nothing. To prove that it wasn't a disconnection we tried running Chrome via a Citrix connection to our server farm and today a user still got the "white screen of death". If the connection was down they would have got a Citrix error instead.

 

Are there any other users out there who are running OpenClient under the latest Chrome who are experiencing similar white screen issues?

Change Column Heading Of Listbox Fields

09 May 2015 - 07:49 PM

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to change the column heading of some listbox fields but nothing happens. ProIV help topic 510043 indicates I can but where it says I can use it doesn't make sense. I have a flat screen with a listbox field that links to a selection cycle. Does anyone know how to do this and where to place the logic?

 

Regards

Ross Bevin

 

Topic - 510043

It is important to note that the listbox.Columnheader is only valid in a paging cycle and is invalid in a flat screen, resulting in the following error message:

'ColumnHeader is an invalid Method or Property for Listbox Listboxname in the context of it's parent object type'

 

 


Build Maintenance Functions From Filedefs - Utility

21 December 2014 - 05:24 PM

Hi everyone,

I have been a ProIV developer for 29 years (I started when I was 2 :) ). About 20 years ago I started to get quite adept at mass changing/manipulating ProIV function code via the bootstrap source files. I can't tell you how many thousands of development hours I have saved my clients over the years. Like most of you seasoned developers out there I also used the old ASC utility that would auto create maintenance functions based on a file definition. Of course once I moved on to VIP/Developer it was no longer possible to use this utility. So 3 years ago I decided to write my own utility function to create maintenance functions from a file definition. I finished this utility a year later in my spare time and have been using it for 2 years now at my client’s site without any issues arising. Frank Coppola from Megasys has been using it in his Oracle environment for almost a year now with no issues. My utility is quite sophisticated in that it builds in some very powerful search capabilities. It also provides you with the ability to include non-key fields as search parameters. It builds for ProISAM, SQL Server and Oracle file definitions. Please see the enclosed help document for more details.

 

Now that this utility is proven and stable I am thinking of selling/licensing its use to other developers. I only want to do this though if there is enough interest out there to make it worth my while. Once I go down this path I have to be prepared to be able to handle my costs associated with its support. So the demand for this utility is going to help set its price. It currently runs on 6.1 to 7.1. I don't anticipate any problems with it running on the upcoming V8 but won't know until NGA release the bootstrap file definitions to me. By the way, I have already run this past NGA and they are OK with me selling this utility to the ProIV community so long as I provide you with the necessary disclaimers.

 

Who of you out there would be interested in purchasing this utility? You can either respond here or e-mail me at rossbevin@yahoo.ca. If you require a demo you can send me a vpx of a file definition and I will build and send you the maintenance function.
