Language / Dev Suite 2018 (v. 15) to 2022 (v. 19) enhancements
« on: February 16, 2024, 11:17:35 AM »
I have not found a place with a single overview of language enhancements (particularly security).  Are there documents that focus on this information which is otherwise scattered through the documentation.  Thanks!

Sure did. It just threw a bunch of errors and recovered 0 records.

Devon,

Already reviewed that.  Unfortunately I cannot open the file (throws error 114) so I cannot use KEYED LOAD.

Programming / Error 114 recovery
« on: January 16, 2024, 11:48:32 AM »
I have files which are showing error 114.  When I attempt to use *UFAR it complains about error 114 and won't proceed (I can check the file successfully).  Any insight on how to recover the data or fix the file is appreciated.

Programming / Re: Block print and Hyperlinks.
« on: November 28, 2023, 04:35:47 PM »
I'm not sure what you mean by "*TEXT", but I think you want this, which can be found in the online manual: (https://manual.pvxplus.com/PXPLUS/file_handling/~pdf~.htm)

Hyperlinks
Text Hyperlinks

A hyperlink can be outputted to a PDF document by printing using the 'TEXT' mnemonic with the <URL> attribute where URL is the destination of the hyperlink. The text will be underlined and displayed in blue to distinguish it as hyperlink text unless the style=inherit option was specified with the URL. In that case, the current font and foreground color will determine the look of the hyperlink text.

Example:

print (pdf_chan)'text'(240,420,"Google","C<http://www.google.com>")

(Support for text hyperlinks was added in PxPlus 2018.)
(The style=inherit option was added in PxPlus 2019.)

Picture Hyperlinks

A picture can be created as a hyperlink that can be outputted to a PDF document by using the 'PICTURE' mnemonic with the <URL> attribute where URL is the destination of the hyperlink.

Example:

open (pdf_chan)"*PDF*;file=C:\my_app\abc\report.pdf"
print (pdf_chan)'picture'(1,1,100,100,"C:\my_app\abc\resources\mylogo.png,<https://www.mycompany.com>",2)
print (pdf_chan)'picture'(500,800,700,880,"C:\my_app\resources\mapbutton.png,<file:///c:/my_app/abc/map.pdf>")
close (pdf_chan)

(Support for picture hyperlinks was added in PxPlus 2019.)

Rectangle Hyperlinks

A rectangle can be created as a hyperlink that can be outputted to a PDF document by using the 'RECTANGLE' mnemonic with the <URL> attribute where URL is the destination of the hyperlink. This can also be used to create an arbitrary region in the PDF that is a hyperlink. By setting 'PEN' to 0, the rectangle will not be drawn; however, the hyperlink will be created.

Example:

open (pdf_chan)"*PDF*;file=C:\my_app\abc\report.pdf"
print (pdf_chan)'pen'(1,3,8),'fill'(2,6)
print (pdf_chan)'rectangle'(200,200,600,600,0,"<https://www.pvxplus.com>")
print (pdf_chan)'pen'(0,0,0)
print (pdf_chan)'rectangle'(800,100,900,400,0,"<file:///C:/my_app/abc/map.pdf>")
close (pdf_chan)

(Support for rectangle hyperlinks was added in PxPlus 2019.)

Language / 'picutre' mnemonic
« on: August 09, 2023, 03:12:45 PM »
Assuming a command like this: print 'picture'(10,10,200,200,"myfile.jpg")
Is there a way to have the image reside on the Windx client?  I have tried prefix the file name with windx and a full path - [wdx]c:\images\myfile.jpg, but to no avail.  Thanks!

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Server to Windx failure
« on: July 31, 2023, 02:53:06 PM »
A final note here. I have no idea why this works, but if I adjust the block size down to 256 bytes when I am transferring from Linux to windows it all works.  I had cut down to 1024, and then 512. Both of those failed, so I stopped.  Go figure.

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Server to Windx failure
« on: July 17, 2023, 03:27:16 PM »
Mike,

I think we got off a little bit.  I am trying to read data from a linux file and write it to a local file.  I open the linux source; I create and open the windows target. I read the linux file with a block.  When I issue the write to the local windows file, it PxPlus dies.  The customer provided this grid:
                         IP               OS                       PVX VERSION   
LIVE SERVER   192.168.101.6       Red Hat Enterprise 5.7   514(32 bit)   
TEST SERVER   192.168.101.66       Centos 7                   771(64 bit)   
TEST CLIENT   192.168.101.161    Windows 10 Home           771(64 bit)   

What is odd is that if the  test client is pointed over to the Centos Server the failure does not occur.

Thin Client/WindX / Windx on a MAC

Customer wishing to access their PxPlus application running on a windows server from their Mac.  Any ideas on solutions here.

James, Yes, empty file.  Mike, I will check on the AV issue; if I can create the file (which I can) doesn't that prove that the directory is writeable?

I added the error branch on the write record.  Providex still dropped out on the write record. So, to be clear, I can create the serial file on the Windx Client machine; I can open the file. As soon as I try a write record of any size (I did create a file and do a write record of the word "test" with no issue) providex exits.

I verified that the Windx version matches the version of Providex.  The instruction that fails is he write record. When I step through that command providex drops.  I am trying to re-connect with the customer and see if an error branch will trap an error (I doubt it, but I'm going to try).

Mike,  I *think* you missed the substring on the "this_File$" in the execute command.

Thin Client/WindX / Server to Windx failure
« on: June 30, 2023, 10:56:28 AM »
I'm almost embarassed to post this as we are talking pvx 7.7, but here goes.  I customer is replacing their Redhat 5.7 server with a new Centos 7 server.  PVX seems to run fine, but any time it tries to do certain things via Windx, the session drops. So, this program will cause the issue on the write record:

0010 open (hfn,isz=-1)"/tmp/4586-1.out"; let IN=lfo
0015 let THIS_FILE$="[wdx]c:\infor\jmg.pdf"
0020 execute "[wdx]serial "+$22$+THIS_FILE$(6)+$22$
0025 open lock (hfn,isz=-1)THIS_FILE$; let OUT=lfo
0030 read record (IN,siz=512)XX$
0035 write record (OUT)XX$

If I change the IP address that the Windx client is using to be the old server, everything works.  Any insight here would be appreciated.

Thanks!  Michael

You are correct sir.  Long week I guess. Thanks.
