Programming / Re: Linux Launching another pxplus daemon task
« on: May 20, 2020, 11:46:27 AM »
When you exit the parent task are you exiting the Linux session back to logon?  If so then you need to add 'nohup' or 'setsid' in front of pathname of the Executable (arg0) that you are running.  This prevents the SIGHUP from being sent to the child processes.

Thanks to all that indicated which operating systems they are using.

Having reviewed the poll results, the following Linux operating systems will not be available for PxPlus 2020 due to the age and the fact they are no longer supported by their manufacturer:

  • Debian 3.1 (Sarge)
  • Ubuntu 10-32 Bit (Lucid Lynx)

Also note: PxPlus 2020 will be the FINAL version of PxPlus for the following operating systems:

  • Redhat (Tikanga) / CentOS 5
  • Debian 6 (Squeeze)
  • Ubuntu 10-64 Bit (Lucid Lynx)

PxPlus 2020 will include support and downloads for the following 64-bit operating systems:

  • Windows 10
  • Redhat (Oopta) / CentOS 8.1
  • Debian 10 (Buster)
  • Ubuntu 20 (Focal Fossa)
  • Suse 15.1 (Leap)

Programming / Re: Working with DLL

PxPlus 2020 (version 17), due to be released this month, will be available on Windows in either 32 or 64 bit. 
So, if you can wait a week or so you could use PxPlus 2020 to call your 64 Bit DLLs.

Check the permissions on the workstation for the directory where WindX was installed.

Never versions of Windows often set any directory where software is installed to read only as a security precaution so you may need to change the targeted destination for the BMP.

What mode are you specifying on the 'PICTURE' mnemonic? 

It likely should be 5 or 6 (top left aligned or centered, scaled maintaining aspect ratio)

In general we target for early May each year. 

The actual date varies a bit based on the calendar as once we have the product ready we need to adjust the web site and do some background testing and setup. 

We will post an announcement to the forum when everything is ready.

Language / Re: pdf on server

If the goal is open a PDF file that currently exists on the host server so you can view the contents then when running on WindX, you need to send a copy of the file to the workstation, then you can use SYSTEM_HELP to launch the default PDF viewer.

Now technically if the PDF file on the host is in a location on the server that can be directly accessed using a UNC, then you can just pass the UNC to the SYSTEM_HELP directive.

Not certain what you are asking?

Are you trying to open/create a new PDF file on the server or just trying to open an existing PDF file on the server?

Nomads / Re: tcb(31) in a validator
« on: April 17, 2020, 11:30:22 AM »
The Validator is called because the control generated an On Change signal which is detected by the CTL value.  This means the validation logic should be able to use the value returned from CTL as the handle to the control.

Have you tried reading the 'Lock property?

Language / Re: WINDEV with redirected printer
« on: April 15, 2020, 04:02:22 PM »
The issue is we rely on the Windows printer drivers to forward the output and I don't believe Windows RDP supports that.

What might work is if you output to a file then copy the file to the PC and print locally.

Ideally you should try and get rid of using *windev* and switch to using *WINPRT* which interfaces with the Windows printer drivers as I'm not certain if raw printer redirects will ever be supported via RDP.

Nomads / Re: Error 26 invalid control on v16 but not v14

Generally when you run Nomads the system sets it on to improve performance.

Nomads / Re: Error 26 invalid control on v16 but not v14
« on: April 14, 2020, 02:11:22 PM »
Are you using WindX? If so perhaps you have Turbo mode enabled on V14 and not V16.

Version 14 normally does complain about using the wrong command as seen in the attachment.

Programming / Re: how to scan GS1 barcodes
« on: April 14, 2020, 02:06:09 PM »
There is no easy way to allow a graphical control to handle a $1d$ character (CTRL+]).  I would suggest you see if there is a way to change the separator on the reader or reader capture software (many have this option). 

If you cannot change the character, you could in your code switch focus to window itself (SET_FOCUS 0) and capture the characters much the same way as the test program did.

Wish List / Re: READ DATA ... FROM ... with quoted fields
« on: April 13, 2020, 05:55:45 PM »
Actually the STR(",") would parse the fields with apostrophes just fine.  It was my example where I tried to make it simpler to follow by replacing all apostrophes that was the issue.

Again, you are reading this data from a file and there happens to be an empty record, if you dynamically define the number of elements in the array you will get zero and/or your subsequent code may reference subscripts that weren't defined.  This is why I pre-define with fixed array dimensions.
