Re: Getting axes error HTTP error 0 sending terminal transaction to server.

Hi A few things you could try to get closer to the cause of the problem: 1) does the errror occur in aXes without using the VLF? 2) does the error occur for every screen or just one? 3) have you checked the devtools console to see if there are any javascript errors. Sometimes a js error will stop al...

Re: Tips for reading trace files?

Hi Art 370,000 lines of VLF tracing is a lot of activity to be happening for a start up. But this tracing should mostly be local, generated by the client program so will not really be affected by a slow VPN. One thing that will slow down a VLF-WIN system is repeated calls to the server. Inside your ...

Re: Detect RAMP Navigation in progress

Hi There is a variable for the target destination form for the current navigation that can be tested but it is volatile and probably not recommended for use. The method I use is to hard code the command handler name in the arrive script. If for one Command Handler I expect the RAMP script to stop at...

Re: VLF-One: RAMP Session Started

Hi, I can't see a way of doing this easily. There are a couple of options that I can think of: 1) Set a flag when the initial RAMP event is fired, so when you switch filters you check the flag. To handle multiple RAMP sessions you would have to get creative, using maybe the Business Object to identi...

Re: VL- Web : How to avoid prompting when handling closing a browser.

Hi Rieko Saitoh Turns out that this is easy. I set the query string to blank and the prompt is not shown. This is in Chrome. I didn't test in other browsers. The window.onbeforeunload feature that this hooks into is browser specific, so you may get different results with different browsers. Evtrouti...

Re: Where to Start?

Hi You say you purchased VLF-ONE and RAMP to use over your existing database. RAMP is the tool that is used to help show the important RPG screens to the end user within the VLF, while hiding (and automatically navigating past) the unnecessary menu and work with screens. VLF-One is the framework tha...

Re: Retrieve screen name of UNKNOWN_FORM from RAMP

Hi RJ RAMP does not allow you to talk to the aXes engine directly, but there are ways around this by getting aXes to talk to the USERENV object. 1) a) in USERENV add a variable: myAXES : null, b) in aXes application onSignon event assign AXES to USERENV.myAxes: USERENV.myAXES = AXES; c) in your RAMP...

Re: CORS policy and HttpRequest

Typically you do this communication with payment provider on the server side. Unless you have a specific requirement. I once did a client side solution with VL/Win and ActiveX because the Franchisor who ran the server wanted the Franchisee (client side) to take responsibility for the credit card tra...

Re: VLF-ONE Submitted Job Message

Hi

When a job is submitted via old RDML programs which are compiled into RPG the number contains the iSeries job number that has been submitted.

With submitting jobs via RDMLX C++ programs this number is not being picked up. Don't know why. Probably should be a bug fix.

Re: Axes Screens are not loading inside Command Handlers

It looks like your command handler has gotten corrupted. Under the command handler section it should have *Ramp and VF_CH001O for the component identifier. The instance shown has Mock Up - RAD/PAd selected. Try removing the RAMP link, then adding it again. Or removing the CH and adding it again. Fai...

Re: How can I access the screen configuration in the RAMP screen

Hi Kahlil A couple of questions: 1) does the designer panel work ok when you use aXes? 2) Have you set compatibility mode on for that website in IE? When using RAMP I made it a practice to not use the aXes designer feature. I would use this feature via aXes in a browser (IE). The RAMP dialogue uses ...

Re: Edit Mask Not Working

Hi First up can you do a test to fill the list with some dummy data from the client to satisfy yourself that the issue is with VL/Web and not with the SQL or server module. Next I noticed that you have set the field to be of type 'S' signed rather than P 'Packed. I haven't seen a numeric field use t...

Is it because you are using hashes for your fields in the where clause?

Expand VL Images to use Web Font Icons

Not sure how you would implement this, but it would be a big plus to use Font Icons wherever it is possible to use an image. ie. in lists, buttons etc. The Font Icon source should be up to the user, there is a Google example on the forum, and we are using Font Awesome. I'm sure that some people will...

Re: Group by on Select_SQL

if you are putting the SQL in the using clause then you would specify a field in fields part of the Select_sql that matched the type of the field in the sql statement. If you can't get the fields to match then use the cast as statement in side the SQL. eg #SQLSTR := 'select SMN, cast(sum(amt) as dec...

Re: Understanding Commitment Control and Best Practices

This means that everything that you update that is journalled will be under commitment control and you must do a commit ...
