Nomads / Re: NOMADS in Linux
« on: July 29, 2022, 07:09:11 PM »
One other thing --

You weren't specific, did you want to use Nomads to design screens or just to manage things like the data dictionary, report writer, create file maintenance screens, use the query and charting subsystem? 

If you don't want to directly design screens most of the Nomads utilities can be run inside a browser using iNomads which is available on a Web license as of PxPlus 2020 (v19).

The version we're running in Linux is PRO v18, which doesn't include the inomads licensing. The plan is to convert a terminal driven application into GUI. I figured out how to access the IDE and NOMAD utilities in WindX on my workstation but the question now is.. When I begin creating the application, is there a way to centralize the files on the server so that the client workstations opening the nomads application can load those files directly?

Similar to how WindX functions - All files and data is stored/accessed from a centralized location..

Thanks Stéphane,

I maybe asking wrong....

Our PVXPlus environment is running within Ubuntu Linux. We do not have any graphical desktop installed within Linux (It's all terminal driven). I'm wanting to work with nomads from my Windows Workstation but how can I access the nomads development suite if it's running on Linux (Is there a nomads client that will connect to the server in Linux?)

If I attempt to run "*nomads" within Pxplus I get "Not a graphical device -- cannot use Nomads"

PxPlus in Linux, running WindX on Windows workstations.
I want to start using Nomads to create panels, how does one
do that with PxPlus running in Linux?

I am venturing from the Basis/BBj world to possibly moving my accounts I have to PxPlus.  I have for now migrated one of my accounts to PxPlus ver18.  So... I guess I am the distributor... LOL   I have emailed sales asking that same question but no answer as of yet (maybe wrong ones to be emailing that question too?) even asked if possibly they had/provide a list of developers in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex that I could get in touch with that I could ask them for some paid training but nothing on that either.  For I am forging on thru what documentation I have.... Thx

Thanks.    Is there any classes that are available for learning Nomads?

Nomads / Newbie in Nomads Development
« on: November 03, 2021, 08:29:50 PM »
I have the latest version of PxPlus running in Linux. I was hoping to start the learning
curve of Nomads with maybe a simple inventory part look up for those in the shop.
As mentioned I am a Newbie so I have started reading the PxPlus documentation and it explains,
but was hoping to find more maybe here on the forum video library or Youtube as visual helps.
Is there possibly something I have missed here or out on the internet that gives more of an outline
from start to finish on the design of a simple panel and implementing with the apps database?
Any help or links would be appreciated.... Thx,

Language / Re: Open Excel File Just To View In Text Base PVX17
« on: July 20, 2021, 03:53:31 PM »
Yes, the end user is running WindX.    The program I have running in their shipping dept is a text based app,
so when a part is entered for packing (ex. 12-422-6) I will have the program look on the Linux server
in a specific directory for an Excel spreadsheet for that part (12-422-6.xlsx) it will notify
the user if found that a spreadsheet for part exist, during the prompt if the user selects to view, I would like
within ProvideX to open the spreadsheet into an Excel window so that he could scroll thru and then close out
of the Excel window when done.

Running text base app in the plant that when a part is found to have a
spreadsheet that contains detail for shipping info, I thought I had at
one time read that a spreadsheet could be opened to view and then closed
while in a Pvx app, no modification of spreadsheet required? 

Language / Re: Load Edit Keys 'EL'
« on: July 02, 2021, 12:34:32 PM »
Rob/Mike - thanks for the help what you both have does work.   I some how got side tracked days
ago when last setting up the users F9 to F12 keys which those will print their values at a command prompt.
It didn't click until I saw the examples that the edit keys will not show their 'EL' value unless your
running a program and I was attempting the keys verification at a command prompt thinking that
they were not working.
Thanks Again !! 

Language / Load Edit Keys 'EL'
« on: June 30, 2021, 06:36:43 PM »
I have some users in the plant running WindX within a character base in Linux.
I have a request that a user wants to load the edit keys (Del, End, PgDwn, Up Arrow, left Arrow)
with prompts to short cut their manual entry.   I had no issues on the setup of F1-F12 keys.
using the 'FL' command, but having no luck using the 'EL' command.  ProvideX Ver17
this is their request for keys:
UP ARROW         A  + return
LEFT ARROW      N + return
PAGE DOWN      END + return
END                       ? + return
DELETE                  Y + return
Not sure what I am doing wrong?   This is what I have
for loading the DELETE key
PRINT ‘EL’,”2”,CHR(9),$02$,”Y”+$0D$
The CHR(9) is the key id
$02$  is the length in hex of the character string
              that will load the editing key with
Y    is the text that will be transmitted when the
              editing key is pressed along with a RETURN that is added
No error when command is executed, but get nothing when DELETE key is pressed either ??
This is what I have for the id of the keys:
00 Left Arrow / Key Number
01 Right Arrow / Key Number
02 Up Arrow / Key number
03 Down Arrow / Key number
05 End / Key number
06 Page Up / Key number
07 Page Down / Key number
08 Insert / Key number
09 Delete / Key number

Thin Client/WindX / Re: MS Window Size
« on: June 30, 2021, 08:38:55 AM »
One thing I found out late yesterday was that some users once they initially
drag their window size out then later exit, next time in it was saved to
what they had sized their window at.   But not others, each time in they
have to resize their window.  It had been working on the older version of WindX
just now happening since upgrading.

I added the call *winpnl within the startup program and PVX still opens in
a smaller window.   Not sure if any of this makes a difference but
ProvideX is on a Linux server running a character based software.
attached is a screen shot of the initial window.

Programming / Use of mouse copy/paste wanting no 'return' after paste
« on: June 29, 2021, 01:15:12 PM »
using PRINT 'OPTION' ("RMOUSECOPY","1") in WindX in a character based
system.  When the user is pasting it is doing a auto return and going to the
next line, the user wants the cursor to end at the paste so that they can add
to what was just pasted.
Just wanting to know if there is a way to suppress the return, and if so, only for select users.

Thin Client/WindX / MS Window Size

How do I keep the application window size of pxplus static when a user restarts the program? It resets to default size rather than remembering what the user had previously dragged it to.
