Programming / Re: PxPlus 2023 Projects

No problem,

We had a lot of discussions at this end as how to rework the projects information is the existing setup didn't take in things like WindX, shared PCS, and Linux very easily.  Hopefully the new approaches will solve this issue -- but as stated in the release notes there was no easy way for us to migrate existing settings so you need to re-define your projects.

You likely just need the openssl libraries.

Use apt-get to install libssl-dev

There should be no need to override the SSL libraries.  We compiled PxPlus 2023 on Ubuntu 22 using the libraries it comes with.

General Announcements / PxPlus 2023 is now available for download
« on: May 24, 2023, 11:59:32 AM »
PVX Plus Technologies is pleased to announce the release of PxPlus 2023(v20). This major release consists of numerous new features, customer-suggested enhancements, and usability improvements, as well as a number of corrections and minor changes.

Key highlights of PxPlus 2023, include:

  • Improved overall application security by adding Two-Factor Authentication that can be used with either SMS or email in both Nomads and iNomads. This now matches the capabilities already available in Webster+.

  • New capabilities in Webster+ include support for Tree Views, List Box pagination, and Chart drill down. The ability to share common security files with Nomads and iNomads has also been added, allowing users access to both Webster+ and iNomads applications from a single logon.

  • Simplified database access for ODBC, MySql, Oracle, ADO and DB2 with the ability to directly create and maintain file prefixes and link files.

  • Integrate PxPlus with non-PxPlus databases using various new tools and utilities designed to import and maintain links to external databases. Many of these new tools will also work on native PxPlus data files, making Data Dictionary maintenance easier than ever before.

  • The IDE has been enhanced to better handle projects and associated control files. In addition, it is now easier to use the IDE over the Web, via any Internet browser or iNomads. Non-Windows development shops can now also use the IDE.

  • Wiki pages can now be created dynamically for both your Nomads and Webster+ pages from information stored in the PxPlus Data Dictionary. This new feature makes it easy to generate and provide consistent online documentation for applications with a minimum amount of effort.

  • The Remote Process server has had a major overhaul so that it can now be used to provide background access to workstation devices and resources. This is key in the development of Web-based applications where local access is needed.

Nomads / Re: HTML Tip
« on: May 23, 2023, 10:30:05 AM »

Thanks but I tried this on my system here using 16.20 (and other releases) and I didn't get any scrollbar.  I tried both with $0d0a$ between each lin, $0a$ between each line, and nothing between the lines -- all worked.

Here is what I did.

Can you provide details on what you are loading into the 'Tip$ property?

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Use Client *IT in WindX plugin
« on: May 12, 2023, 02:44:00 PM »
Why not just use a demo license on your laptop?

Use WindX to copy the files over to the PC or remote mount the Linux host to get access to the programs.

The only issue is that the Demo license will remind you periodically that you are running a demo, but if all you are doing is editing programs this should not be an issue.

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Use Client *IT in WindX plugin
« on: May 12, 2023, 11:54:32 AM »
Not certain what you are asking.  Are you looking to run *IT locally on the users workstation to edit program on the server?

Technically you could run *IT on the WindX workstation but there is no mechanism to download/upload program files from the server.  Unfortunately, while running *IT locally the host would probably think the workstation has disconnected as it would not be receiving any WindX exchanges so the host connection would likely fail.

What you might be able to do is use WindX to download programs to a workstation, then use a standard (or Demo) license on the workstation to run *IT and edit the program, and finally update the program back on the server again using WindX.

Nomads / Re: Unexpected Preinput on Panel Exit
« on: May 04, 2023, 05:20:38 PM »
Perhaps the control you are on has an signal on Exit option enabled and the ALT-X (which I suspect triggers an eXit button) closes the panel thus triggering the On Exit event which effectively places the codes for the  event into the imput buffer

Nomads / Re: Grids ColumnNames Property Read-Only ?
« on: April 24, 2023, 09:42:50 AM »
Yes -- its a READ only field as it basically is a combination of all the grid column names designed to make it easier to extract them in a single call.

iNomads / Re: iPad device for remote support
« on: April 11, 2023, 03:38:30 PM »
With our new release due out this May you should be able to run most any program from the PxPlus IDE using iNomads to a Linux or Windows host -- effectively allowing you to use any browser to support a client.

You will also be able to use Webster+ to edit programs using its Inspector capability.

Now all that being said and while an iPad will work, some things like text highlighting and file transferring are challenging when using a tablet device, it can be done, but I personally find getting the right touch screen gestures awkward.  A PC or at least a system with a keyboard such as a Chromebook are easier to use.

This is because most web browsers come with built in search capability.  For example when using Chrome on Windows simply press ctrl-F.  Different browsers have different options but almost every browser has a search capability.

That may be because the ECHO service is not running on the machine you are connecting to.

Here is a link to a discussion about using the ECHO service and the 'ping' command that may explain what you are seeing.

You shouldn't use the KEY=...

0010 BEGIN
0020 OPEN (1,TIM=5,ERR=BAD_HOST)"[wdx][tcp];7"
0040 READ RECORD (1)A$
0050 PRINT A$

And I assume you are trying to see if the workstation can connect to the host -- thus the [wdx] prefix.

What PING command are you referencing?

The only thing related to a PING command that PxPlus has is a built-in keep alive for WindX workstations.  It is basically a timer internal in the EXE that after the pre-determined interval causes the system to a dummy message to the workstation.  If the message is not acknowledged prior the next transmission we assume the connection is lost.

As for pinging servers to see if they are present, the standard IP setup is to send a packet of data to port 7 of a server which should in turn echo it back.  So basically an OPEN of the server port 7. use WRITE RECORD to send some data (generally around 32-64 bytes) followed by a READ RECORD which should receive back the data sent.
