[U-L] migration problems

Hi all,

We have recently migrated our CHUI application as follows:

Uniface 6.1.du to Uniface 7.2.06
HP-UX10.20 to HP-UX11.00
Informix 7.24 to Informix 7.31

When testing the screens we have come up with some problems:

All of our boolean fields that used to diplay Y/N values on the
screens now display X/null, although they do write correctly to the
database as Y/N. (We’re using the boolean packing code B3).

Some of our ‘getlistitems/occ’ statements just don’t work anymore
(corresponding ‘putlistitems/occ’ are OK). We use these to pass
retrieve profiles between components.

Has anyone come across any of these problems before? (How many sites
are running Uniface 7 apps in CHUI mode???)

Thanks,

Keir

    Hi Kier,

    you can define a display format for boolean fields in the SYNTAX definition:

    DIS(Y/N)

    should give you the displayed characters of your choice (see quick reference
    guide 7.2.06 chapter 9).

    You can use the global Update feature to do a bulk change.

    Success, Uli

    P.S. I tested that feature a long time ago, so please check if this works as
    you need it.

    What exactly is your problem with getlistitems/occ? I have been using it to
    pass profiles from one component to another, just like you, for four years
    and I don’t have a problem.
