Programming / How to disable blink?
« Last post by Ned L on Today at 12:37:35 PM »
My application, written in PxPlus (not Nomads) occasionally uses 'BB' and 'EB' to highlight various fields.
Many, many years ago we set 'BB' to appear in red using
   1118 LET TEMP$(17,8)=$0101010101010101$; REM " 'BB' = Red
so these fields both blinked and appeared with red text.

I have a client who likes the red, but doesn't want the text to blink.
Is there a method to globally turn off the blink, without affecting the color?
I've tried
but those aren't accepted.

I've tried
but that seems to make the text disappear completely.

Maybe this is a matter of modifying the terminal driver in *dev
But, frankly, I'm not sure which terminal driver I'm using.
I'm starting PxPlus with
  "\\spsrds\c$\PVX Plus Technologies\PxPlus 2019 Upd 1\pxplus.exe" -NR -SZ=8000  m:\_QAP\CP\OP4MZA"
running on a Windows server.  What determines which terminal emulation setup routine is used?  If I knew that, would it just be a matter of REM'ing out the

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

My guess us you are running BBx emulation where the Windows numbers start at zero instead of one.

You likely need to tell WindX to use base zero by remotely setting parameter B0.

An error 61 usually indicates an licensing issue.

Did you install the WindX plug-in or PxPlus on the WindX client?

Was the WindX a clean install to a new/empty directory?
Language / Windows Numbers

I am working on a program with multiple windows.  I am using DEC($00$+MID(FIN(0),10,1)) to report the window number, then 'GOTO'(WINDOW_NUMBER) to move between the windows.
This works very well with any emulator EXCEPT Windx.  In Windx, the system occasionally loses track of which window it is in and also fails to 'DROP'(WINDOW_NUMBER), However, 'POP' still works.
I think the client/server communication is somehow losing track. Is there perhaps a SYSTEM PARAMETER we can adjust to correct this?

I just installed a new PC with Windx.  All of the workstations make heavy use of sending files to the PC Workstation and we use C:/tmp/ for this purpose to receive the files. 

This new workstation generate an ERR=61 whenever we try to write to the PC:


This fails.  We have removed all virus programs, turned off the firewall, and checked and rechecked the permissions on the disk and folder.  What are we missing?

Why not use the *web/email utility?
It is now included in the base product and provides the ability to send emails with attachments.

« Last post by edjack on November 12, 2019, 10:31:55 AM »
As of PxPlus 2016, the 'HdrTextColor$ and 'HdrBackColor$ properties are available to control the colors of the column titles.

e.g. RV.CTL'HdrBackColor$="Light Gray"

This would be done in your code, or by defining it in a Theme or Visual Class.

That works for me... thanks
