Searching for Graph ocx compatible with Uniface…

Hi Unifacers,

    I’m looking for a graph ocx compatible with Uniface. I just want to
integrate in the Uniface application some simples graphs.

    Does anybody have an idea ?

Wildcards on MSS

Is there a difference between Oracle and MSS when using uniface <gold>?
I have the same uniface app running against a Oracle 8.1.6 DB (ora8141L.DLL)
and a
MSS 7.0 DB (mss7020L.DLL) with mapping 2.

I have a table with a varchar(200) field and there are 2 records in the
table
first with value ‘A’, second with value ‘AA’

Whe using a retrieve profile <gold>?<gold>?, on Oracle, only the record
containing the value ‘AA’ is retrieved.
On MSS both records are retrieved.
Why?

Regards
Thomas

[U-L] AW: QARun and Uniface

Hi!

This is not intended to be an advertisement for any product or any company.
You’ve asked for informations on QARun or comparable products interfacing
with UNIFACE-Applications. Here’s just what I’ve learned ;-)

I have designed and implemented an interface between UNIFACE and WinRunner
from Mercury Interactive (comparable to QARun from Compuware), since my
company is partner of Mercury Interactive.

I do not want to compare these two products against each other at this point
(I would like to keep this sort of things for the marketing guys ;-)

The problems I ran into are probably the same problems QARun had to solve.
They are all related to the Architecture of UNIFACE Applications, namely to
the separation between the GUI (which is dynamically created) and the
Runtime-Environment.

The only job the interface between UNIFACE and WinRunner has to do is to
give every UNIFACE object an unique name. Every Form, every EditBox, every
Panel, etc. has to be identified by WinRunner. The rest of the configuration
can be done in WinRunner itself and is therefore highly flexible and can be
adopted to every UNIFACE widget.

One major strength of WinRunner is IMHO that all Test Script Language
Functions are High Level functions which you can redefine/extend to your
needs in WinRunner itself, so every sick behaving UNIFACE widget (checkboxes
are really mean, for example), can be adapted quite easily.

I want to mention once again that I do not prefer any testing product, you
still have the choice between a couple of products which are able to
interface with UNIFACE, which one you choose is IMHO a question of personal
taste.

For the german capable members of this list I can offer some more
information:
The German UNIFACE User Group DUBeV and Compuware held an User Meeting and
Technology Briefing in Dortmund/Germany on November 29/30 last year. Among
others, two presentations were made about testing of UNIFACE applications
(one for WinRunner and one for QARun)

These presentations can be found on

Re: [U-L] Searching for Graph ocx compatible with Uniface…

Philippe,

We’ve used some of the ocx from IOCOMP with success.  It depends on the
exact type of graphs you want – they have ocx’s for several types, but not
all types (as of when I looked last).

Need help with Radio Groups in Server Pages!!

Is there a workaround to this funky behavior? In server pages radio
groups only appear vertically like this:

*radiobutton1
*radiobutton2

instead of like this

*radiobutton1 *radiobutton2

even though thats how they appear in design view and they have multiple
columns in the model.
It seems that <BR> is added after each radio button in the radiogroup
you CANNOT manually edit the .hts to remove these because they are not
there. It seems that the urd component puts them in for whatever reason.
What can I do to get horizontal radiogroups?

[U-L] Word and Outlook

Hello All,

I have a form which sends data from Uniface to Ms Word 97. Using Uniface and
Ole.
I use a template.dot with bookmarks on it to place the data on the right
position.
(see pseudo code)
But the customer uses also Outlook with Word as the e-mail editor.
At the moment that the user has an e-mail open (new or old) at the
background and want to create a new document. Uniface (or Ole) makes a new
E_MAIL! instead of a word document based on the template!

I know there is a word (visual basic) property:
Application.ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate
In word the Outcome is: "MyTemplate.Dot" or "EMAIL.DOT"
If it is EMAIL.DOT I want to raise an error like "Please close your e-mail
window!"

How can I do this????

Regards,

Paul Koldijk

___________________________________________________________________________ _
_____________
Pseudo code

$13 = "Word.Application"
perform "OACREATEOBJECT"
If ($status = 0)
   $word_app$ = $12
Endif

$12 = $word_app$
$13 = "PG;Documents;Add;1;S;MyTemplate.dot"
perform "OAEXECMULTIV"
if ($status != 0) message "Error"

$12 = $word_app$
$13 = "visible"
$14 = "b;0"
permorm "OASETPROPERTY"
if ($status != 0) message "Error"

while (X=Y)
   CALL lp_goto_bookmark(name)
   CALL lp_insert_value(value)
endwhile

[U-L] Intermodel relationships

The Uniface 7.2.06 docs suggest one should "avoid using Intermodel Relationships to extensively" and "only define intermodel relationships when referential integrity is handled by UNIFACE."

We are currently  working on a project plan to start designing and developing in a 3 Tier Architecture Environment.  When doing this, we would also like to split up our currently large Application Model into smaller Application Models and recreate the relationships needed between the models.

After reading the above about "Intermodel Relationships", I was wondering if other would like to share their thoughts (pro/con) on the subject.  Why should/shouldn’t we use Intermodel Relationships?  (other than the docs say we shouldn’t)

Thanks,
