Re: [U-L] Field Layout Properties

Colin,

The definition in the repository always overrides the paint tableau coding.
However removing layout definitions would cause the paint tableau coding
to reactivate.

If you decide to use templates you should define every property explicitly.
(E.g. NBR if you want to be sure that no field is displayed bright. Empty
would activate a possible property
from paint tableau)

> How can I change ALL of my fields to ignore any right mouse button options

As this properties Borderline, Underline, Inverse, Blink, Bright and Color
are part of the paint tableau coding there is no standard global update
available from Uniface.

[U-L] 2 Uniface Related Questions

1) I built a Visual C++ 5.0 DLL which uses the uniface 6.1 libraries
umswlib.lib, yrtl.lib & urtl.lib. Despite trying many permutations on
the various setting for compiling and linking , I invariably get the
following errors:
nafxcw.lib(appcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol
___argv
nafxcw.lib(appcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol
___argc
nafxcw.lib(filelist.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol
__mbctype
I logged onto the Microsoft site for help but to no avail.

Nevertheless the DLL works and I can use the MFC for ftping and windows
printing …

It’s just that everyone likes to see a build with no errors.

2) I want to timeout my Uniface front end so that after the User leaves
and doesn’t touch the keyboard for 5 – 10 hours the Uniface application
shutdown, allowing a network upgrade of the required DLL’s.  Any
suggestions?

Thanks in Advance

[U-L] Linking 3Gl-modules in 7.2.03 on OpenVMS

Hi,

Does anyone know how to define more than one 3GL module
in the Start Up Shell?  We’ve migrated from Uniface 5 and
there we had a difinition like:

alf_dir:alf3gl.obj, alf_dir:b325_3gl, alf_dir:b317_3g

in the field for 3GL Modules & Libraries.  This worked fine.
But in Seven Uniface only includes the first module in the
linking command – the rest of the modules are ignored.

Is there a new syntax for defining more than one 3GL modele?
I’ve looked in help and the manuals but couldn’t find anything
on this issue. (Haven’t looked i Pillars of Wisdom so far in
the hope that somebody might know right away).

3GL Progress Indicator

Hi all,

I’m calling a 3gl function in a DLL using the ‘perform’ command in UnifAce.

In this function I send progress messages to the UnifAce form using the UPUTAMES

UnifAce 3gl service function.

I have a sneaky suspicion that these messages only get serviced by the <ASYNC> trigger of my UnifAce form once the ‘perform’ function has completed which makes

it useless as a progress indicator.

Can anyone confirm this and if this is true, how can I send (real time) progress

info to the UnifAce form?

We are running UnifAce 7.2.02 on NT4 SP3.

Kind regards,

Tinus Koekemoer

[U-L] Printing problems

We have a form which asks for an invoice number then calls a second
form to print the actual invoice. The printer model has a left margin of 10.
The first invoice prints OK. When we then repeat the process (without
exiting from the first form), the next invoice is printed with a left margin of
20 !
Changing the left margin to 5 would give the subsequent invoices a
margin of 10, so for subsequent prints the left margin seems to be
doubled.

Changing the left margin to zero solves the problem (obviously 2 x 0 = 0!)
but this is not a workround for us.

Is this a known bug ?

TIA

Liam
