Nomads / Re: Property Sheets Designer Issue
« on: November 11, 2022, 09:05:25 AM »
We tried this on the current version and some earlier versions.   If the Save Windows Setting is set, any changes made to the Properties dialog are saved, such as changing the sizes of Property/Value columns, increasing/decreasing the size of the dialog, and moving the dialog to a new location on the screen.

What is your font setting?

We need further clarification.   Which column sizes are you referring to? Is it the Property and Value column sizes in the Properties dialog?  Also what version are you using?

For now you can change the listbox to Default Fixed Font and leave the visual class as is

Tips and Techniques / Using the New PxPlus IDE Launcher
« on: June 05, 2020, 01:14:10 PM »
The IDE Launcher was enhanced in PxPlus 2020.   There are now two types of IDE Launchers available – standard and enhanced.  The standard launcher will continue work as it has in previous releases.  The enhanced launcher will provide additional capabilities and customization, such as adding tasks to a ribbon toolbar and adding web pages.

The enhanced launcher is made up of four distinct sections – Project, Tasks, Ribbon Toolbar, and Web Folder Tabs.

A. Project Section

Select the project you’re working on from the drop box.  A new project can be created by using the Project menu.

B. Tasks Section

This section consists of three main components:

Menu Button - When selected will display all PxPlus tasks and utilities in a tree view
History Button - When selected will display all tasks that have been recently accessed
Project Button – When selected will display all tasks added to the selected project

All three components also have right-click capabilities and side buttons for additional functionality.

Switching Between Standard and Enhanced Launcher

Click the double arrow button located beside the Project button

C. Ribbon Toolbar Section

Up to 10 tasks can be added to the Ribbon toolbar.   There are several ways that this can be done. 

Adding a Task Using Toolbar button

1. Click the Toolbar button located beside the Project dropbox
2. When the dialog displays, enter a task ID or select one from the lookup
3. Enter the description
4. Enter the bitmap or use the lookup to select one
5. Use side buttons to change position of task or delete a task
6. OK to save

Adding a Task Using the Menu Tree View

1. Right click on menu item in the tree view and select Add to Toolbar
2. Click a task and drag to an empty spot on the Ribbon toolbar

D. Web Folder Tabs Section

This section can be used to add a website to the launcher.  Two tabs have already been created – Help and Support.

Adding a Website

1. Click the Folders button located just above the folder tabs
2. Enter the name of the folder tab or select from the dropdown arrow
3. Enter the URL of the website to be displayed
4. Use side buttons to change tab position or delete a tab
5. OK to save

Using Navigation Buttons

There are four navigation buttons that control the current website displayed

Home: Returns current website to home
Back: Moves the website one page back
Forward: Moves the website one page forward
Refresh: Refreshes the current website

Go to IDE Launcher to learn more.

Tips and Techniques / Using the Maintain NOMADS Environment Utility
« on: June 03, 2020, 02:00:19 PM »
This utility introduced in PxPlus 2020 was created to provide a simple grid interface to help set %NOMADS properties for your application.  The utility gives you access to all of the %NOMADS properties and can be sorted by category, alphabetically, or by whether the property has been set.   As you navigate through each property, the property description will display a brief overview with examples.   Each property value can be entered by selecting a checkbox or drop box, picking a value from a lookup or entering it in the grid.   Property values can also be entered as expressions to give added flexibility.   The values are stored in a settings file and once the %NOMADS object is instantiated all of the settings are applied.

How to Set Properties

1.   From the IDE Launcher select the Maintain NOMADS Environment task from the Graphical Application Builder (NOMADS) menu.
2.   Once the utility is launched, the grid can be sorted by category, alphabetically, or by properties that have been set, in order to help locate the desired properties.
3.   To set a property, check the Set checkbox and select/enter the value appropriate for the selected property.   
4.   To enter an expression, check the Exp checkbox and enter the expression.   

Note:  if a value/expression is entered first, the Set checkbox will automatically be checked.

5.   To save the entries, select either OK or Apply.   Apply will save the changes without closing the window.

Other Features of the Utility

Display Settings:  Displays contents of the setting file
Copy To:  Copies the current settings file to another directory
Reset:  Clears the settings file

Go to Maintain NOMADS Environment Utility to learn more about this utility.
