Webster Plus / Re: Problem with filling grid
« Last post by Mike King on June 27, 2022, 10:34:34 AM »
I have attached a ZIP file to this message with a sample invoicing program that you might find helpful in understanding how to use Webster+ grids  (page name: inv, program: invoicing). 

Basically when you enter an invoice number an event loads the grid with the appropriate invoice lines.

If you look at the HTML page you will find it makes extensive use the 'usefile' option to pull in the field definitions from the standard PxPlus data dictionary.  This allows you to change things such as field sizes, validation rules, and prompts in the data dictionary, and have them immediately reflected on the HTML page.

For example for the Client name we coded:

Code: [Select]
[row "\[show usefile field=ClientName$\]:"][input ClientName$ usefile][/row]
This defined a row on the page with a prompt generated from a [show] whose text was sourced from the data dictionary ClientName element, and an input field also sourced from the definition of that element.  Doing this also automatically included not only the field definition but also the queries associated with the fields.

The page also defines an event tied to changing the Client number which would reload the client information along with three calculated fields to be automatically updated locally by the browser.

You should be able to run this demo by using the *webster/install program to create a Webster+ setup directory then unzipping the attached ZIP file into that directory.  It has been tested on v18.20 and v19.00.

Nomads / Re: Messed up IT Editor after upgrade to 18.20

Yes, I also updated the Pxplus Client to 18.20,  sorry I should have included that.

Did you update both the server and the client to the same PxPlus version ?
Nomads / Messed up IT Editor after upgrade to 18.20

Since upgrading to Pxplus 18.20 my IT Editor as constantly messing up the edit window.  (See Attached Image) .

I'm running on a CentOS Server using the IT Editor over SimpleCS  to Windows Server 2012 Remote desktop.

Anyone have a fix for this ?

Yes -- referencing the next element to be create in a dynamic array will cause it to be created.

Hi James,

I get the same result as you do, but here's something interesting.

The following code doesn't work:
Code: [Select]
dim Fld$[*]
read data from "Mike,Was,Here",sep="," to Fld${all}
print Fld$[1]," / ",Fld$[2]," / ",Fld$[3]
Mike /  /

But, with the addition of a line that prints the array elements, it does.
Code: [Select]
dim Fld$[*]
print Fld$[1],Fld$[2],Fld$[3]
read data from "Mike,Was,Here",sep="," to Fld${all}
print Fld$[1]," / ",Fld$[2]," / ",Fld$[3]

Mike / Was / Here

I'm not sure why printing these elements is causing them to be created in the array, but that seems to be what's happening.

Consider the following:
Code: [Select]
dim Fld$[*]
for z=1 to 3
print Fld$[z]
print dim(read num(Fld$))

Programming / Re: Determining numbers used in an ASCII sequence.
« Last post by Mike King on June 23, 2022, 03:59:59 PM »
My question is what exactly are you looking for?

You asked how to find "the number of slots used" -- that is different than the number of potential values between the two values you provided.  How is one to know if a slot is "Used" -- is this a file and you want to know how many records exists between the two keys?

If so then just get the difference in the RNO values for these two records as in:

OPEN (1) "TheFile"
READ (1,KEY="A000ZZ")
READ (1,KEY="A0010F")

The number of USED slots between these two value would be the difference between the two RNO's less one.

That's an interesting challenge :-) 

I wrote a function to do this by converting the input values to a decimal number, then just subtracting the two values. You may need to tweak it depending on whether you need to include the starting/ending values.  You can test it by passing in hex values, then comparing to an actual hex value. 

Here's a couple examples of running it, and the code is further below.

Test two simple Hex values:
Value 1:0A
Value 2:0F
Type for each position: H
Difference is: 5

Test two numeric values:
Value 1:123
Value 2:456
Type for each position: NNN
Difference is: 333

Test two hex values, and validate result:
Value 1:01A1
Value 2:01F1
Type for each position: HHHH
Difference is: 80
PRINT DEC($0001A1$)
PRINT DEC($0001F1$)
PRNT 497-417

Testing using your values:
Value 1:A000ZZ
Value 2:A001FF
Type for each position: ANNPAP
Difference is: 196

Here's the code:

Code: [Select]
0010 ! Trying to find the number of slots used between a starting and ending alphanumeric number, i.e. the number of slots used between A000ZZ and A0010F.  Positions 4 & 6 can be 0-Z, position 5 A-Z (with the exclusion of :;<=>?@)
