We have a Report View listbox with 4 text lines per entry. When we include accented characters as part of a line, it breaks the line and we now have 5 text lines (see attached). If I translate the accented characters into un-accented characters, it's back to being a 4-line entry.

Is there an option I'm missing somewhere? Is this something with Windows or PxPlus and listboxes?

Suggestions welcome.

The only time we run into the Error 61 problem is when the user hasn't set up the WindX authorization properly. Why it's happening on a LOCAL statement or with a particular server file (I presume) is a curiosity indeed.

Yes, I did. It was more the Ctl-C and Ctl-Break that I saw different than the table results.
Language / ESCape key trapping
January 24, 2024, 04:10:42 PM
We're starting to get new people using our application, and instead of using the F-keys we display, they'll use then ESCape key. Normally, we wouldn't expect any problems, but it seems that PxPlus maps then ESCape key to ctl=4 (F4 key) by default. Is this correct? Or was there a change a while back? Or am I missing a parameter setting?

I've changed 'my' keyboard configuration to have ESC return $1B$ and it works as expected.

BTW, the example program for 'Format 3' on the SETESC page does not work exactly as described in the table.

Have you tried a BMP?

This may have something to do with the file being built as an EFF file.
See EFF vs VLR File Formats for further details.

Has anyone encountered this before?
I'm already dealing with multiple options. What seems to get it through, though, is including No_Flush=1 when I'm dealing with a single click and returning to the same listbox for further action. Together with your test showing the double-click follows the single-click in the input stream, this looks like it makes everything work the way we want.

Thanks for the tips.

Thanks, Jane, that did wonders...even for v15! It took our list from 34 entries to 10.

I'm noticing, though, that the TitleBar dependencies are being repeated at the end of the list, resulting in their being processed twice. This is different than the original sequence, where they were repeated twice at the beginning of the cycle. I think our list should only contain 8 entries.

Any thoughts?
It's good to know the double-click is getting through. Unfortunately, it's after the single-click has been processed. Would I then have to test for the double-click in my single-click logic? Or is there something else that could be done?
Language / Track Single- and Double-Click in Report View
November 06, 2023, 10:46:43 AM
Is it possible to get both a single and double click in a Report View listbox? I've been able to get the single by setting Signal All Changes, but when I do that, I can't double-click; it always responds as if it's a single click. When I don't set it, I can get the double but not the single.
Any ideas?
Nomads / Dependencies Doubling with Embedded Panels?
November 03, 2023, 02:39:15 PM
We've got a panel with a TitleBar, an embedded panel, and several other controls. The TitleBar has 1 dependency, the embedded panel has 2, and there is one for one of the buttons on the panel. We had some timing issues with this, and I had previously had some duplicated entries, but those have been removed, so we're down to what I've listed.

I set up a trace file, and it looks like all of the dependencies for the TitleBar and embedded panel are processed twice for each cycle, while the panel button's dependency is only processed once.

Also, if the panel is set up as Resizable/Custom (the original plan), all of those dependencies seem to be re-doubled. It's as if the setup procedure is called multiple times and/or the counter is not reset to 0.

Is there something I should/not be doing?

Nomads / Auto-Complete not setting kno

We've got a file with keys defined as:

External key size ............: 6
Alt. key 1 ...................: [7:1:10]+[1:1:6]
Alt. key 2 ...................: [12:1:8]+[1:1:6]
Alt. key 3 ...................: ["ADDRESS1":3:1:30]

When creating an Auto-Complete definition for Alt. key 3, there seems to be a problem. When I set the "Key Name/Number" field to 3, all is well. But when I set it to "ADDRESS1" (with or without quotes), the auto-complete doesn't work; it operates as a standard multi-line.

Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks, St├ęphane! That's a real sweet way to do it.

It's great to learn something new every day!
