Re: Image questions

Once you do sys_web.Navigate you are out of VL Web, and you are just viewing the image in the browser. On Android (Chrome) you are able to zoom and long press on the image to save it. I suspect you are using an iPhone, and that Apple in their infinite wisdom decided to disable such functionality. I ...

Re: visualstyle in grid ?

Hi Paul, are you getting some sort of error when you are trying this out? If i set the style of a grid cell, i can then retrieve it again without errors. The issue might be that you have set the VisualStyle of the entire grid, and some specific cells in the grid... If i query the VisualStyle propert...

Re: What's going on @ LANSA?

I am often told i am a chronic optimist, but I am still confident that LANSA's future is bright. There are certainly a few people leaving, but from what i heard they are doing so out of their own decisions. Sencha was a startup company with lots of unnecessary expenditures and staff - LANSA is a muc...

Re: ODBC Error Invalid Column Name when adding new Field

Joe, when you compiled the file without the drop table option (as per that last pic), the rebuild table/indexes options would have failed/skipped because the tables already exist. But the OAM would have been replaced (this overwrites regardless). So you have a situation where the database table does...

Re: Editmask

Sorry if that part wasnt clear! The setting for leading zeros is one that is often overlooked - it is from back in the days of Functions and Processes; VL Web honors the setting, but it isnt all that intuitive to find.

Re: Editmask

1. The placeholder issue is fixed in the latest EPC (EPC142030). The field will need to have ASQN attribute, and the placeholder will be shown when the field value is *SQLNULL 2. Leading zero display is configured through the System setting under System Information/Display and Print controls/Show le...

Re: YYYYMMDD -> DDMMYYYY field for the web

Hi Sotiris Just to add to Dominique's response, it is a good idea to make sure that the entered date is a valid one, before executing the AsDate intrinsic function - otherwise you will get a runtime error with that code If ( #InputDate.IsDate( CCYYMMDDD ) ) #OutputDate := #InputDate.AsDate( CCYYMMDD...

Re: Should we use Material Design Style controls when developing VL Web application after V14 SP2?

Yes, you can, and probably should use Material Design even for desktop only applications. The look you will achieve is similar to (but not exactly the same as) Windows 10 applications. This is a general design direction for all applications now, not just mobile. Of course you are not restricted to t...

This allows you to check a field/fields against the field and file level rules defined at the repository level. Currently this feature is available for Prim_MD.EditF...

Re: Overriding the msi installation paths in the deployment tool

Hi David, indeed the MSI installer (which we have been using since V13) uses the Microsoft recommended installation folder for applications, which is either: c:\users\{logged on user}\appdata\local\apps\{company name}\{App description} for a "Current user only install" or c:\Program Files (x86)\{com...

Shortcut for entering code snippets (using templates) in V14

In version 14, you can now execute code templates just by typing the template name in the source code and pressing Enter template1.PNG This means you can easily execute templates to insert often used code snippets, or help you write longer coding constructs. VL ships with quite a few 'Building Block...
