Programming / Re: Assign a query to a cell at run time.
« on: March 20, 2023, 08:44:28 AM »
One thing I have done at run time is programmatically assign a 'celltype$ (such as Lookup, LookupHideBtn, Query, QueryHideBtn) to a grid cell. Then in the cell logic you can test for _EOM$=$FF$ to determine if the query or lookup button has been pressed and then do logic to invoke the query.

You can also do this system-wide using:
PRINT 'OPTION'("StdRowHilight1",color$),

iNomads / Re: iNomads Class for Queries
« on: December 06, 2022, 11:15:03 AM »

Sorry for the time lag, but we're looking at adding an iNomads class to the query definition and I have a question:Regarding putting an iNomads class on query panels, would a generic class, such as iquery suffice? Or would you need different classes for different queries? If a generic class would solve your issue, we could add an iNomads class to our Lookup panels.

As for auto-sizing query columns, there is a Query Header option for Auto Column Resize to set default/on/off for the query (where Default is the setting in %nomads'Query_AutoColSize.

Nomads / Re: Security property on folder tabs
« on: August 10, 2022, 11:25:02 AM »
My response Aug. 4 was incorrect and should have read:
When a folder with view-only access is drawn, the controls are disabled permanently (or locked in the case of multilines). Program logic to enable/disable controls will have no effect on the disabled/locked controls.

There is currently an issue when creating the controls in this scenario that will be addressed in the next release.

Previously, Y and Z are on panel X (the main panel), but the security is on X.1, so I don't follow  why security is affecting controls on the main panel. But now Y and Z are on the first tab, so I'm a bit confused.

If you have some simplified panels that illustrate what you are attempting, it would be great if you set up a support ticket on our Helpdesk and upload the sample panels there and explain what is happening vs what you are expecting to happen.

When a folder panel is drawn, the controls are disabled for view-only access. What happens after that would be dependent on your code enabling them programmatically, or the effect of a dependency.
(Note: This response is incorrect. It has been corrected in the Aug. 10 response.)

Programming / Re: Radio Button Properties

If your radio buttons are called rb, then you can check the individual properties by setting the id property to the button index:
PRINT rb.ctl'enabled

Programming / Re: Report Writer Passing .pvr argument
« on: May 03, 2022, 08:59:38 AM »
I opened the report as instructed. The blue triangle in the left corner of the row header cell for the line tells me that the row has variable line height. If I click on the Note$ cell to highlight it, then right click and select Bulk Edit Cell Format, then the display indicates that Word Wrap is turned on for that cell.

What may be confusing things here is that if you right click on the cell and select Cell Format, then Word Wrap, there is no indication whether Word Wrap is on or off. Similarly, when you right click on the row header and highlight Variable Line Height, there is no indication as to the current setting. We enhanced the menus in PxPlus 2021 to add checkmarks to the menus to indicate current selections for the current cell. (If multiple cells are highlighted, checkmarks may not appear if the selection is not consistent across the multiple cells.)

Programming / Re: Report Writer Passing .pvr argument
« on: May 02, 2022, 02:08:41 PM »
Looking at the .pvr file, the Detail L1 is set to variable height, and column 17 of that line (with Note$) is set to word wrap.
Using PxPlus 18.20, I loaded the report definition into the Report Designer. When I checked column 17, word wrap was turned on and Detail L1 was set to variable height.
So I cannot duplicate what you have found.

If anyone can shed further light on this issue, please respond.

Does the cell with the word wrap have anything in it? If it is empty, the word wrap setting will be ignored. And if there are no cells with word wrap in a line, then variable line height is ignored.

If the above is not the case, then please refer this matter to our helpdesk:
Let us know the version of Pxplus that you are using, and if you could supply a sample .pvr file it would be very helpful.

Nomads / Re: Picture in TitleBar
« on: March 14, 2022, 09:16:55 AM »
Attached is an exported library text file titlebar.txt that you can import to a new library.
It contains a titlebar with a centered image.

Sorry, I did mean titlebar, not toolbar.
How is the panel sizing set? And how is the resizing for the image set?

Nomads / Re: Picture in TitleBar
« on: March 10, 2022, 03:32:15 PM »
To get an image centered in the toolbar, I did two things:
1. For the image, I defined the Image Format to be Centered (preserve aspect ratio)
2. I set Panel Sizing to Resizable/Custom, and set the image control have Stretch sizing.

Programming / Re: Check for damaged files
« on: November 18, 2021, 08:58:56 AM »
This is not a total solution, but you can use the *dirtree utility to walk a directory tree and return a list of files. (The program is self-documented if you list it.) You can then loop through the file list, opening the files and using the FIB() function to determine their type, and go from there.

Programming / Re: Error 99 in *plus/proj/pathinfo
« on: October 20, 2021, 03:03:28 PM »
Yes, turning off the flag the flag and updating should work, but switching the flag will make it attempt to update the non-existent SVN version one last time.
The issue for me is that the error 99 should not have occurred, so I have to fix that.
