Re: VL for Web: downloading latest version of RP javascript when using *CREATE_FROM.

thanks for your answer, danny. i think i'll have to change tack with my framework a bit, away from a single page hosting multiple applications. i was hoping not to have to recompile and manage the webpage every time (a bit cumbersome because i'm in a task tracking environment with multiple developer...

VL for Web: downloading latest version of RP javascript when using *CREATE_FROM.

hi, i have written my own VL for Web framework application that uses SET_REF *CREATE_FROM to instantiate parts. in a scenario where reusable part 'P' is being instantiated within the framework's webpage 'W' using this method (meaning it is not explicitly declared by a define_com and so is not part o...

Re: Better support for VL object names on System i.

2) the export list facility on check-in only seems to want to create an export list. specifying an existing list does not add the object to that list, but gives me an error saying "export list failed to create on ibm i". apologies, seems this was only a warning message, and the object has been adde...

Re: Better support for VL object names on System i.

thanks for the response, diane. a couple of things: 1) if i'm coming to a 5250 display, with no access to an IDE, and i'm only armed with an object name, i may need to press F22 a whole lot to find the object i'm interested in. what about offering a function key to search by object name? or to switc...

Re: IDE Debugging

i agree that these would be very handy enhancements. pretty please, lansa! on a (slightly) related note, when using the features view (F2), all events, properties and methods of an object are listed in alphabetical order, regardless of whether they are user defined or inherited from the primitive ob...

Better support for VL object names on System i.

on the System i, both Work with Visual LANSA Objects and Work with Lists of Objects to be Exported only operate on VL object identifiers, rather than their full names. please consider allowing the user to work with full object names in these contexts. it would reduce much of the cognitive load when ...

VLF-ONE - the framework as the application.

hi, rather than have one or more applications defined within my framework, i would like the framework to effectively be the application, with its business objects at the "top level". i did think that if i had only one application defined, the framework might recognise this and not require me to sele...

Re: VLF-ONE custom logon handler.

once a user is successfully logged on to our intranet, they are assigned a session id which is carried around everywhere. the framework will be launched from the intranet using a hyperlink, passing the user id and session id via the url. these will then be retrieved using #sys_web.URLParameters and ...

Re: VLF-ONE custom logon handler.

yes, thanks, i'll wait.

can you confirm such a thing will be possible (my aim is to launch the framework from another web page, where the user's credentials have already been verified)?

VLF-ONE custom logon handler.

hi all, i'm interested in completely bypassing the VLF-ONE logon panel when my framework is executed. the documentation says to "Ask on VL forum" for further details :) in the first instance, i've created my own version of UF_OEXEC along with a custom logon handler inheriting from VF_AC026O, and a c...
