MSGF anomaly

18 May 2006 - 03:06 PM

I have a global screen function that refuses to output any help messages.

The function has fields with normal help messages on FLDSPEC (@HMSG) but the corresponding records on MSGF (@MSGEH = 'H', @MSGSQ = @LSRSQ) have @MSGTX blank.

If I manually (outside @MOD/@MODX) edit these records to have a message of my own choosing and re-gen, then the message still doesn't appear.

It looks like this function has got itself in a knot. Does anyone know of any reason why this may be ocurring?



Error: Subscript out of range

09 May 2006 - 03:59 PM

Downloaded version 0.1.52

Tried to open a function using "CSV load" and got a warning that my "server" version was 0.29 and this client requires 0.30.

Acknowledged that and got:

Error: Subscript out of range

Procedure: Procedures.DecodeFLDSPEC("S",0)

Line: 100

Version: 0.1.52 Beta

Acknowledged that and app closed.


Array global parameters

08 May 2006 - 02:36 PM

Has anyone successfully passed a scratch (or file) array to a global function?

It seems to be broken here (version 5.5).

Global function has parameters:
    PARAMETER                                    VARIABLE       ARRAY
    SEQ    TYPE              VARIABLE NAME              TYPE    LEN  SIZE 
    ---  ---------  --------------------------------  --------  ---  -----
    001      E      $_ARRAY                              A        2   100

which can reference the array and GENs fine.

Calling function has interface:
 SEQ TYPE            PARAMETER                          MAP TO             
  --- ---- -------------------------------- --------------------------------
  001  E   $_ARRAY                             $_ARRAY

And logic 000:
LNE  ST -----------------------  S T A T E M E N T --------------------------
 001     DEFINE $_ARRAY(100, 2)

And logic 010:

I've tried parameter type 'I', 'O' and 'B' and also using '$ARRAY()' in place of '$ARRAY' in the interface.

Mostly I get:

If I use $_ARRAY() then the function GENs but doesn't call the global function.

Any help?

Bad field painting with global screens

28 April 2005 - 02:16 PM

Anybody seen this?

An ordinary screen function paints it's fields (4 in this case).
It calls a global screen that has 7 fields painted much further down the screen.
(Global screen has 1 LS, that doesn't "Clear screen")

The values of the first 4 fields in the global screen are painted over the 4 fields of the main screen, and remain blank in the global screen.
The other 3 fields are painted correctly.

Niether function is at all complex, and although I'm using a parameter on the GLOBAL_LSCALL(), the problem is reproducible with no parameters.

It seems if the global screen sets the "clear screen" flag, then all 7 fields are painted correctly, but of course the main screen's fields (and all the prompts too) are removed.

Pro-IV v5.5, r524

This feels like version 1.2.
