Re: performance issue opening up dialogs from container

Hi Gary, First thing to do would be to identify if it the slow down is on the server or client. If you are using Chrome (other browsers have similar tools) open up the Dev Tools (Ctrl+Shift+J), click on the Network Tab and make sure XHR is selected. Run through your app and you should see the data r...

Re: Free Form Text Block in Code Editor

Hi Brendan, I think that is a good work around and something I will have to remember to do. I get that there are limitations on what the compiler can handle right now, but surely it can be upgraded. With other languages like C#, Java etc. the compiler is continuously updated to provide new features....

Re: VL Web Google Line Chart

Good grief, this caused me all kinds of headaches. I really, really don't like Javascript, but sometimes its the only way to get stuff done. The main problem is that I need to transpose the list, basically make the top row columns and the first column rows. I could not figure out a way to do this in...

VL Web Google Line Chart - (RESOLVED)

I am trying to get a widget to display some summary data. What I'm struggling with getting my data shaped in a way that can be presented in a Google Line Chart.

Free Form Text Block in Code Editor

Do the developers still pay attention to this board? The board description mentions that all entries will acknowledged, but a lot of these go unacknowledged. In case they do, it would be nice to have a free format text block in the IDE editor. The editor is VERY demanding with its spacing and indent...

VLF-ONE Deep Menu (RESOLVED)

I just noticed that the VLF-ONE Example Applications has a deeper menu structure then the other apps. See how under "Example Applications" there is a Foundation menu item and then the Object menus.

Re: Screen designs

It sounds like you are trying to drill down into Orders -> Order Details & Order Lines -> Order Line Details. Order Details and Order Lines can all be shown in the Commands for the Order Instance, i.e. one command for Details, one command for Lines. Where you will run into a problem is when you want...

Re: Report with images

We use Integrator's PDFDocumentService quite a bit. After the initial shock of having to write the XML template, it really is not that bad and most of my templates are pretty small. There is some trial and error involved to get the spacing right, but after a couple you tend to get an idea of what's ...

Remove Local Throttling

Please remove the localhost throttling in VLWEB. I can't tell you how many times I am working through a scenario and everything locks up it waits for the a throttled request to complete. This is VERY frustrating as I think something has gone wrong only to realize I am fighting VLWeb's runtime. In Ch...

Re: VLF-ONE Back Button / Back Space

Oh man, that would be nice! I know that other frameworks (Angular, React, Ember, Vue etc.) have solved this, but I don't know how they have done so. I don't know how you would make the underlying details work but these are my thoughts from a VLF-ONE developer perspective. I think that each Applicati...

Re: VLF-ONE Back Button / Back Space

If I just leave the querystring in place and DO NOT call uTerminate then it works.
I'm assuming then that this is safe to do, not calling uTerminate when the page closes.

Re: Trace File Best Practices

I contacted support who in turn contacted the developers about this. Here is their response Joe is correct in his concerns about multiple processes. The tracing object will be instantiated by the first object to run on the server, and it will open, and lock the file being written to. So when another...

VLF-ONE Back Button / Back Space

A lot of our users are complaining about hitting the back space in VLF-ONE and it taking them back a page like the back button. I recognize that this is a browser issue and that Chrome removed that "feature" and FireFox has a way to disable it. IE and Edge however still behave that way and a lot of ...

I am getting the same behavior.

Here it's defaulted to today (June 10th). Capture1.PNG Then se...
