Programming / Re: Strange if then else behavior

The issue is a result of the line oriented nature of the language.  IF ... THEN ... ELSE ... will basically process what is on the line.

This rises the question how does PxPlus find the closing curly braket? Are there any performance aspects?
As I don't like premature RETURNs or EXITs my coding style looks like this.
Code: [Select]
SUB_ROUTINE:
if condition {
txt$  = "Are "
txt$ += "these "
txt$ += "lines "
txt$ += "processed "
txt$ += "in "
txt$ += "some "
txt$ += "way "
txt$ += "during "
txt$ += "execution "
txt$ += "in "
txt$ += "order "
txt$ += "to "
txt$ += "find "
txt$ += "the "
txt$ += "closing "
txt$ += "curly "
txt$ += "bracket?"
print txt$
}
return
Would that routine be faster using a premature RETURN?

Thank you. I'll take a look at it.

Devon,

I want to drag files from a PxPlus listbox and drop it on a control of an external application.

I have a listbox containing filenames and want to drag a file from it to another non-PxPlus-application. How can I do that?

I wasn't aware of 'GridMLVersion'.
That comes close, yes. I hope they accept it.
Thank you.

Nomads / cell editing

A customer wants to end cell editing with <ENTER> and move to the next editable cell according to the tabmode.
I tried:
Code: [Select]
preinput [next] $09$ ---> does nothing
preinput [next] -1015 ---> moves to next control
How can I achieve this?

Programming / Re: ERR option ignored

Mike

The error is thrown by the NEW() function. The constructor as already been left, so I cannot check anything inside the object any more.

Programming / ERR option ignored
« on: July 20, 2022, 10:42:32 AM »
For a few weeks we encounter a strange error 65 every now and then, when our programs create a COM object.
Code: [Select]
ON_CREATE:
def object outlook, "[LCL]Outlook.Application", err = *next
if not(tcb(2)) then nameSpace = outlook'getNameSpace("MAPI")
return
This has been a save way ever since. On the WindX side MSG(-1) returns "Exception occured (err/ret=2/0)"
According to Eric we should check for the object reference > 0. But I wonder why the err option is ignored in these cases.

I want to retrieve this information at runtime. SQLGetInfo sounds promising. Can you please post a sample? I can't find anything in the docs.

I would like to query the version of the local ODBC-driver and the SQL-server.

I did so and the DD shows no names any more. But fin(1,"FILE_CREATE") still returns the old names.

Nomads / redefining keys
« on: February 24, 2022, 07:25:45 AM »
I removed kno #2 and #3 from a file and added a new kno #2. After a click on "Update File" that kno has the name of the old kno #2.
The segment notation is correct but the name is wrong. How can I get rid of it?

Nomads / buttons
« on: January 18, 2022, 07:23:49 AM »
I'm looking for a way to create "buttons" like the one in the attached hardcopy. It looks like a panel ON a button.
The hardcopy was taken from a MS-Teams dialog. A style like this is used in many applications now.
All ideas are welcome.
