Nomads / CHART Legends font/size
« Last post by jhendrickx00 on March 01, 2024, 07:43:52 PM »
Hi I'm using PxPlus 2023 Update 1 (version 20.10) running under Windows 11; Chart type: Native (Type Column, 2D);Font: Arial, 11 pts; Margins: setting of "2" (top, left, right, bottom margins)

I don't know how to change the dataset legend (marked in yellow in the attached picture). I need to the change font/size.

Have you tried setting 'List from top after Goto' option found in the Options menu selection? 
Programming / IT editor: Go To line focus
« Last post by PMM_CAI on March 01, 2024, 10:14:25 AM »
(I wasn't sure how to word the subject line)  ;)

In the IT editor, if I go to a particular line -- let's say the first line in a routine/method -- is there a way to have the line load at the top of the display? The line in question loads partway down the screen, and I often have to scroll down to see the entirety of a routine that I might not need to if that first line appeared at the top. (By the way, we use line numbers in our installation.)

Just wondering if there's a way, for efficiency's sake. Thanks in advance!

Webster Plus / Re: EZWeb takes approx 20 seconds for actions
« Last post by Mike King on February 29, 2024, 04:04:02 PM »
That sounds like it would work.  The actual waiting page could be generated by Webster+ since a page that is being displayed and idle waiting to request an update itself would not consume a user slot.  Basically the user slot will only be used while Webster generates the page, not while its displayed.  Actually this is one of main benefits of developing using Webster+.  Less active resources used on the server.

Now if you only need to update the display every 5 minutes (300 seconds) and assuming your logic can generate the response in 1/2 second (which is likely an overkill) for 1000 users you likely only need a 2-3 user license (with 1/2 second processing 300 seconds will allow for 600 requests).

Let us know if you need any help.

Thanks so much for your replay  i appreciate this.
there a way from command line run utility to fix that problem... because i don't have nomads  for 32 bits...the version i have is 64 bits and don't know could affect all information on table.

I can't help you with that - you need to contact whoever created the file/dictionary entry as it looks like these do not match.

Hi Mike thanks for your (very) valuable feedback; the 'background problem' can arise because some of this 'notifications' can be money-related (Money on place/The delivery took the money/Money at warehouse/Money left place X/...), and of course, this could be very atractive to someone with 'not so clear intentions', so the security is important ... we consider to develop a HTML page (no Webster/PxP+) and refresh it every 5 minutes or so, then call the Webster+page, if there changes, show the changed, update the results and be back to the 'wating page', but still we're just gathering info; my first goal was to try to keep the development with an all-pxplus solution, but perhaps using a mix one should get better results.

I was thinking about your issue last night and wondering if perhaps the easiest solution for you would be to use RSS.

There are a number of free RSS readers for Windows and other platforms, many of which can reside in the task bar or run in the background and display an alert when an RSS feed changes. 

On the server you could create RSS files and have your  internet web server (Apache, IIS, etc) simply serve up the RSS file.  Depending on your needs you could have multiple RSS feeds, a global for all users, company specific feeds, even user specific feeds.  These RSS files could be updated on the server as required using PxPlus either as the events occur or by a background task.  As for load, most servers can easily handle 1000s of requests per minute if all they are doing is forwarding a data file (the RSS feed).  This avoids you having to worry about how many PxPlus licenses you might need as PxPlus would not be directly involved in the RSS request.

Of course a lot of this depends on exactly what your application requirements are, but using RSS might be a real simple solution.

BTW: Another solution might be to use something like WhatsApp to send messages.  This is something I am looking at presently.
