Language / Re: CREATE FILE from *memory*
« Last post by Mike King on April 15, 2021, 02:44:11 PM »
Yes the input has to be a real file and not a memory file as the create will create the same type of file as the input which is not appropriate if the input is a memory file.
Language / CREATE FILE from *memory*
« Last post by James Zukowski on April 15, 2021, 12:00:27 PM »
I'm creating a temporary text file so it can be completely done before dropping it into the final destination directory for export. This time, I'm printing the lines to a *memory* file. However, when I try:

create file OFile$ from (OFile)

to create the disk file from the memory file, it throws Error #13. Is this appropriate? Do I have to create a REAL file to be copied?

Thanks in advance!

Good day William,

have you had any response so far?  Not sure exactly what you are expecting as for help, but maybe I could help you from time to time.  I am in Canada as well, but on east side (Ottawa) and I know how small the community of PVX programmers is.  So, I understand your situation...  Anyway, I haven't worked with ProvideX for years (we've switched to PVXPLUS a while ago), but it's pretty similar.  I could also ask one of my retired coworker that still does consulting for us.

I'm also curious if someone reads this, is there any PVX programmers that does consulting?  We are also looking to expand our team, but the hiring process is pretty difficult these days!

You might try installing the windows program CommandCam (you can find it on the web) onto the WindX workstation and use it to capture an image from their web camera to a file.  I haven't used this myself in production, but I have used it to capture an image using a webcam.

Hi List,

Sorry - it is  registry setting on the machine that was trying to access the share...

i know this is probably permissions but i was hoping maybe someone had some insight as i've never received an error 10

i have certain users who can open up this directory
open (1)\\\Scans\Orders"

and certain people who get an error 10....

any ideas?

We are a small operation that has a complete accounting system that is installed in a number of locations in western Canada. Recently Cancer took the life of the developer/programmer of this software. I have been mainly been the network side of the operation. My programing experience should be categorized as dangerous. I am looking for a experienced programer that I could consult/involve with in the programing area preferably in the western Canada region. My name is William (Bill) Earl and I can be reached by calling (780)808-0142 or emailing me at wcearl@tbsystem.net. I look forward to hearing from someone that might be interested in providing occasional support.

We have a client interested in capturing their customer's photo when they are operating the register from a Windx workstation.
Perhaps a drivers license scanner instead/as well.
What sort of hardware would be recommended?

After poring through the iNomads doc, I think I can use the 'User_poll_routine$ property to pretty much replicate the behavior I want:

User_Poll_Routine$ If set by developer, system will call this routine every time a poll is received from the browser.
Hello Mike!
Thank you so much for the ideas, the second option is what the business is looking for.

Have you tried outputting the report to a PDF and passing that as a attachment to *web/email?

You could also produce the letter as a html file, then read the file and pass it directly to *web/email setting the content type to text/html
