Nomads / Re: Nomads - Signature Capture and Touchscreen

How do I get the fix. Must I upgrade from version 18 to version 19.10 or can I update a few select programs.

Can you share your solution on here.
I have been trying to get it to work myself with no luck. The closest I got was it worked with a mouse but with the stylus I got a target cursor when the stylus approached the screen.

The only other issue I have now is the stylus does not mark/draw in the signature box. I can draw with the mouse in the box, but that is not ideal. I tested the stylus using MS paint and it is functioning well. The stylus also appears to be somewhat acknowledged in the box. When I approach the screen with it a target dot appears.

Is there a way to determine the login used in the app server.

Thanks for hanging in there with me. I got the signature capture box and capture button working with your help. I think I can add the other buttons also.

The documentation states

The Capture button retrieves the signature as a png image and saves it to a file. The OnChange logic looks like this:

     sigcap.ctl'saveImageFile("sigtest.png")

Does this reffer to the button control? I could not find ONCHANGE. Should it be when button pressed? What should I select from the drop down, perform, execute? Not sure.

Thanks for the reply. I guess a read the documentation wrong. It sounded like it automatically adds the buttons. I will try again.
I am trying this on a MS surface. It has a stylus to allow the user to write on the screen

Programming / Signature capture

I have installed the latest version of providex. Version 18 I believe. I am trying to use the signature capture control in nomads trying to follow the documentation. Here are some issue I have encountered
1) the Signature box appears but the the 4 buttons do not.
2) I can draw in the box but the stylus does not work.
3) not sure how to grab and store the image for use latter.

As Monty Python once said any help would be helpful.

Programming / Re: LIST OF OBJECTS
May 28, 2020, 12:32:44 PM
A little more info on this subject. It appears it may be windx issue. The machine that fails is running version 9.10

hopefully that will jog a memory from some of the old timers.  ;)

Programming / LIST OF OBJECTS
May 27, 2020, 04:15:43 PM
I have an old XP machine where I can enter DEF OBJECT X, "[WDX]*" and get a long list of objects I can connect to.
On a windows 7 machine the list is far shorter and I don't see the one I need. I have tried to re-register the OCX to no avail.
Any tips on register an OCX for use with WINDX.

Thin Client/WindX / TELNET LOGIN ISSUE
April 23, 2020, 05:37:38 PM
I have an issue where from time to time windx using a telnet connection to a linux machine fails to get the login prompt. The line which states the machine name etc appears fine.

If I use a generic telnet program it works fine every time.

Very odd issue any ideas where to start to look?

Programming / Interact with external web sites
February 27, 2020, 10:54:07 AM
Is there a was to connect with external websites from a PVX program?

Lets say I wanted to connect to the weather channel and get a copy of the screen.

Is it possible to do this via a program? I am not interested in the graphical parts just the text parts that I can parse thru.

For example I can manually do this by googling weather milwaukee. Then highlighting the parts I want. Then copy. Then paste into notepad. then save on the server. See attached file. My program can then parse that data for what I need.

I would like to automate it.

Tried it again.
Seems like I can

read record (99)xx$

and get a response from the utility.

I was looking for more suspension of my PVX program and  a complete interaction with the utility until I exit
the utility.

I may investigate running it on the work station

I tried the open logic. It did not give me an error but it also does not allow for any interaction with the utility.

I also get error trying to close the channel.
Same errors if I type begin, end, or start.
Seems like the channel is stuck open.

Programming / Command line interface
February 07, 2020, 03:48:01 PM
I have programed an interface to a linux utility. I utilizes a simple character based interface.

I now want to use this same logic on a windows server. When I execute the code the process seems to lock up.

What I think is going on is the process is running and waiting for input from me except there is a disconnect of some sort between my process and my screen. This is using the app server setup. When I check with task manager on the server it shows the utility is running.

I use syntax like this to execute it. 

10 A$="\vbasic\clickit -test \tmp\testfile"
20 a=sys(a$)

Perhaps there is a better way to interact with this utility.

Any thoughts anybody?
