Programming / List_box titles

In a Nomads defined LIST_BOX-Report View
Is there a way to have the Title Line display with a background colour, such as Light Gray?

Using SYSTEM_HELP "Mailto:"+EMAIL$
Is there a way to specify a file attachment with this command?

After some on-line reserch... this cannot be done...
Our work around was to write the attachment file names to the clipboard and provide on screen instructions to paste into the mail app when appropriate.
This saves the users a couple of steps and ensures the proper file is attached.

Programming / Session Check

I there a way to check that a pvxplus session is active and if not launch it.
Maybe a background pvx program running continuously or a 3rd party app??

Can providex be installed and activated on a cload storage drive such a OneDrive or Google Drive?

I do not think it can... But is there a work around?

Thanks... This should work for us.

Language / TSK to return NID
« on: March 19, 2019, 02:54:09 PM »
 TSK(*PROCESS LIST) gives me a list of pvx processes with a UID identifier.
Is there another TSK function that will give me a process list with a NID identifier?
Or some other way to get a list of all pvx processes with a NID identifier?

I agree... i could not find line 1875 in winqry either...
But our error routine captures the error details and is send to us via email.
Here is the captured error details:

Error#: 42 Error #42: Subscript out of range/Invalid subscript
MSG(-1) Message:
At line Number: 01875
Program Name: winqry (File Type: Keyed)
Version No: 6.18.01  Build#: 24581311  Date: Jan 12, 2018
Serial No: 1310-001-0148964

very strange...
I have sent them upgrades that will refresh all the PVX programs and our applications programs.

I thought this was easy but cannot see how to center data within a column in a query.
How is this done?

Programming / Re: Field Force development
« on: December 05, 2018, 12:47:56 PM »
I have no problem with the field checking function...
I was wondering what the best method would be to construct a maintenance routine that will allow the users to specify which fields are required.
I am thinking about a drop list populated from the file DD that would have check boxes for each field.
Is this the easiest method?

Programming / Field Force development
« on: December 05, 2018, 08:37:28 AM »
A client wants to be able to indicate what fields in their account master file of our application should be forced/required before an update is allowed.
They just need a maintenance routine to allow them to indicate which fields are required and a file to store the results.
Our existing update could check this new file to see if all required fields are filled in.

Just wondering what would be the fastest way to develop this in nomads?

Programming / Re: Backups and corrupted files
« on: November 22, 2018, 10:40:47 AM »
Paul, have you considered using the CREATE FILE directive to make your backups?

This directive (added in PxPlus 2016) was specifically designed to help with this problem.  It does a high-speed data backup of active data files while placing a temporary lock on the file that prevents any updates. 

Assuming your files are a reasonable size you should be able create duplicate files fairly quickly.  For example on my Suse Linux server here I was able to create a backup of a 750MB file in under 2 seconds using the CREATE FILE directive.  The system prevented any updates to the file during this process but still allowed other processes to have the file open and simply stalled any updates until the copy was complete. A few second delay during off-hours is likely not going to be noticed.

In theory you should be able to create a program that makes copies of all your files as your backup and optionally ZIP that that directory up or transfer to another machine.  This should help assure you clean backups.
Trying to get the syntax of the command working with a channel number.
Can someone post a sample of the "CREATE FILE" command using a channle number.
