Programming / taskbar location and size
« on: September 29, 2021, 09:16:12 AM »
How can I retrieve the location and size of the taskbar?
I can determine the current monitor with fin(0,"XYMonitors") and obj(0). But a call to *winapi;getMonitorInfo only seems to work for monitor #1.

Let me rephrase the question.
Using [MYSQL], how can I pass the certificates to the OPEN command?

Is it possible to build a SSL connection to a MySQL-Server?
How to do it with the OPEN directive?

Thin Client/WindX / Re: MS Window Size

I can remember a similar behavior a long time ago. As far as I can recall the solution was to make sure each user use his/her own pvx.ini. Otherwise the last one wins. Use "%userprofile%\pvx.ini" when spawning the new process.

We use the parameter "-hd" when starting a new PxPlus process. For CUI sessions we omit it, which makes PxPlus save the location and size in the pvx.ini for later use.

Did you try hiding the grid while the colors are set? This can boost the performance.

That sounds good. Thank you.

Wish List / construct popup menu
« on: April 19, 2021, 05:58:42 AM »
In some programs we use user data in popup menus. In order to avoid an error 87 we strip out/replace all theses characters: [{,}]
This often leads to disscussions concerning the wrong display of their data.
Can you please allow for escaping these characters or provide an up to date API for constructing a menu?

Wish List / lock file only if required
« on: April 01, 2021, 02:20:06 AM »
During our updates we use "*dict/dd_updt;UPDATE_PHYSICAL" in order to keep the files in sync with the current DD. Every now and then that tool reports a file in use, though that file doesn't need to be converted.
Wouldd it be possible to lock the file only if there is a need to convert it?

Is there a tool to define a group for *wingrp on the fly?

Programming / tab size in multilines
« on: February 03, 2021, 08:40:22 AM »
We convert tabs ($09$) to a number of spaces in textblocks comming from multilines with a height>1. Prior PxPlus 2019 the tab size has been 8 blanks. With PxPlus 2019 the tab size has changed to another amount of blanks(?). If I'm connected to a customer's server, then I have a tab size of 6. Some users of that customer have a tab size of 4 on the same server and in the same program. I cannot see any tab size property, so that must be a user setting.
Is there a way to set the tab size or can I query that value somewhere?

Language / Re: Using get_file_box to drag files to pxplus.

That should work. A "get_file_box read" supports D'n'D here.

Thin Client/WindX / Re: WindX Security Prompt v17

That is a panel library. You can edit it with *nomads.

« on: October 16, 2020, 02:33:47 AM »
Each user has his own environment. Maybe that is the reason.

Another way to circumwent the security check is to deploy a modified version of the library 'windx.en' in the WindX subdirectory on the client.
Add a pre display logic in the panel 'security_chk' to execute cmd_str$="END",arg_1$="NO"

Language / Re: %Z__PVXDDF$ global
« on: October 13, 2020, 02:49:11 AM »
You can use this global to change the DD at runtime.
During updates we use it in order to tell *dict/dd_updt which DD is the requested one.
