iNomads / Re: query button

nvm - it was some CSS that was causing it... Sorry!

iNomads / query button
« on: July 29, 2020, 12:03:45 PM »
Does iNomads ignore the %NOMAD_QRY_ATTR$ global? It seems to honor %NOMAD_QRY_BTN$ (it uses the bitmap I specify) but it always seems to render the query button as if %NOMAD_QRY_ATTR$="fQT"

Language / Re: INVOKE/SYS() rights on Windows

Does the SYS function have an equivalent to CONTROL? (doesn't appear to)

Language / INVOKE/SYS() rights on Windows
« on: July 22, 2020, 02:08:05 PM »
1.   I am logged on to a Windows server (via RDP) with an account that has admin rights.
2.   UAC is turned off.
3.   I run PxPlus (inside my RDP session) and use either INVOKE or the SYS function.
4.   Is the resultant operating system command run with my elevated/admin rights?
Anecdotal evidence would seem to indicate "yes" but I'm looking for a more definitive answer.

Programming / Re: EFF File Size Limitation
« on: July 01, 2020, 09:39:34 AM »

We run on Windows so I'm not sure if there are any additional CentOS limitations, but, from a PxPlus standpoint, it will depend on the block size of the file. Check out https://manual.pvxplus.com/PXPLUS/directives/create_table.htm
I'm pretty sure this will apply as far back as PVX9.10 - Looks like your file currently has a block size of 4K

Language / Associative array as a method arg
« on: May 28, 2020, 09:20:50 AM »
PxPlus 15.10
Is there a way to pass an associative array as an argument to an object method?

Language / pxpcefsub.exe
« on: May 07, 2020, 03:21:53 PM »
Windows 2016/PxPlus V15.10
What is this EXE and what causes it to get launched?
It (and pxpcef.dll) reside in the PxPlus folder - I see this in task manager at one of our clients (and I never have before).



Nomads / Re: tcb(31) in a validator
« on: April 17, 2020, 12:04:49 PM »
See? Like I suspected = more obvious/better - Thanks, Mike.

Nomads / Re: tcb(31) in a validator
« on: April 17, 2020, 11:14:57 AM »
That's what I want to examine ('lock) so hence my question - how do I determine the control value inside the validator? Since the validator is CALLed, is there a Nomads global or %NOMADS property I can use? I was going to try tcb(31) (seems to work in my prelim testing) but I feel I might be missing something more obvious/better.

Nomads / Re: tcb(31) in a validator

Specific use case is that I want to know if the multi-line is locked when the user presses a function key (and fires off the validator program)

Nomads / tcb(31) in a validator
« on: April 16, 2020, 05:24:31 PM »
If user is in a multi-line that has a validator program associated with and the hits a terminator key [Enter], [F2],[F3], etc. can I rely on tcb(31) to return the value of the multi-line control inside the validator program? Is there a better way to determine that?

Registration and Setup / Windows 2019
« on: November 26, 2019, 07:22:16 AM »
Although I don't see it listed on the downloads page, is PxPlus supported on Windows Server 2019? If so, which version(s)? If not, is there a timetable for 2019 support?

Language / Re: Correcting missing key
« on: October 24, 2019, 02:55:39 PM »
We've experienced this in the past when we remove records in rapid succession (e.g. from within a select loop) from a file with several (usu. >10) alternate keys. There never seems to be any corruption after the fact but you do have to click OK on the message box to proceed. Not only a nuisance, but can be problematic if the process is meant to run unattended (e.g. as a background task or from within a Windows service).

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Maximum connections using Simple Host/Client
« on: March 05, 2019, 05:19:55 PM »

On the dear, departed mailing list there was a thread regarding Windows heap size limitations and I think that's probably what you're running into.
I no longer have access to that  thread but I have some notes that reference this MS support link https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/126962
I'm not sure what (if anything) has changed on Win 2016 but on a Windows 2008/64-bit server we set SharedSection=1024,20480,20480 in the referenced registry key value to increase our user threshold.

ODBC / ODBC licenses used?
« on: February 12, 2019, 10:45:06 AM »
When accessing PxPlus data via client/server ODBC, the accessing application will sometimes be denied the connection because all available (server) licenses are in use. Is there a simple way to tell which processes (Windows) are consuming the licenses?
