In Topic: Starting Programmer Salary input requested

Just to be clear: The comments about ProIV vs Java were not mine.

We are very excited by what we are seeing with Open Client in our testing in house. It really looks like it add a substantial deployment / administration / marketing advantage to our product line.

Best Regards,

The following input was offered in one private message:

Pro-IV is not seen as mainstream/sexy to some programmers starting off a career ... if your new hire is good and productive then just be sure to pay him whatever he would be paid if for example he was offered similar job in a nearby Java development firm. If hes really good then maybe pay him above the average to ensure he does not jump ship to a Java job etc as this would waste your time and effort training him up on Pro-IV and your system etc ...

I've not yet received significant input in terms of salary dollars...



In Topic: SQL Server Catch Deadlocks

What's different about SQL Server record locks in 6.2 / 7.0?



Move to 6.2. SQL Server locks can be handled quite elegantly with no delay in the notification to user that a table is locked.

Great news: The adage of finding a solution immediately after posting a public message requesting help still holds true.

It looks like the Exit Function for @VIPWP03 is incorrectly set to 028. Resetting it to @VIPX067 resolves the issue. Will ping ProIV support so that no one else has to burn time on that one.


Hey folks,

We're moving our developement tools to 7.0

We're having an issue with trying to use the ProIV supplied bulk build stub function @VIPWP03. Basically, it just returns the error INVALID FUNCTION NAME - 028

Our steps are to load @VPBQ01 appropriately and then set the @$COM variables consistent with the documentation.

Has anyone seen and cracked this error?

Thanks in advance,


In Topic: Displaying Server Images

The short answer is 'Yes', there are a few ways to accomplish this.

However, as the others have indicated, it would be very helpful to have a better understanding of what you are trying to do.

I suspect that you may be interested in using CLIENT.GETPATH to find the temporary directory on the workstation; CLIENT.SEND to send the image file to the workstation; CLIENT.EXECUTE to view the image with either a named application or the default application based on the file extension.

If you, however, you "know" that the image is located within a directory on the server that every user could see, you can use CLIENT.EXECUTE without moving the image to the local workstation.

Best of luck,
