VLF-ONE Wizards and conversion of the #@$

Hi.

In Denmark we convert the #@$ to some danish special characters in LANSA. It have for years given us some problems/Issues. We nearly have solve all the translation issues with LANSA.
Today I have tried the new wizards in VLF-ONE (EPC 1410050/34) to create filtes and BO. The wizards do not translate the @#$ to the danish special charactes. Where can I change these wizards so they do the correct translation?

The only one that should cause an issue in the Common Activities is the field prefix (#).
Try this:
- Start developer's workbench.
- Use the Programming Code Assistant from Tools - ignore any warning.
- Set the correct field prefix to use here then click the generate option ...

- Save and restart.
- Now code generated by the Common Activities panel should now use that character as the field prefix.
- Please let the forum know of your success or failure using this technique.
- If it's okay we will include that configuration option into the Common Activities panel Getting Started section as well.

Hi
I works for the prefix of the fields. But I have one problem in the server module. The #IO$STS field is not correct the # is correct translated but the $ (dollar sign) is not translated.

Could you try the attached versions of these 4 server module .dat files and see if that solves the IO$STS problem?
Unzip them and put them in your partition execute directory

Hi.

It worked. no probles in the combilation. But I think you cheated a little bit ;-). You did not convert the $, you just used another field.

I suppose so - but Its consistent with all the other code assistants. (consistent cheating)
