Re: Birthdays come every year but only once a year!

I actually wanted to write something yesterday too. Roger, I wish you the very best for your birthday and I am very proud and happy that we met and became friends. I also think it's just great that you haven't retired yet. 8) But I really regret that we haven't seen each other for so long. It would ...

Re: How to Test if a program is already running.

As an eXpress+-user, you have a ready-made function for this:

Code: Select all

DC_IsAppRunning( <cClass>, ;
                 <cTitle>, ;
                 [<cFile>], ;
                 [<lRestore>] ) -> lStatus

Re: How can I develop a DLL IN Xbase++ to use it in a C# program

On SOAP you will heve to publish WSDL and add XSD for data validation. REST is more lax here and does not need such things.
You don't have to. The service itself does not need it.

God protect us.
If God exists and is the cause of everything, then that would be like asking him to protect ourselves from himself.
But I don't think we should have this discussion here. 8-)

Hi, Diego. Hello, I hope you are very well Everything is fine here, apart from the fact that there is war in Ukraine and the Middle East and that parts of Africa are currently completely going down the drain. :( Alaska established it's very own calling convention for functions embedded in DLLs ("DLL...

Re: Postgre ISAM command

It seems that Tom finally figured out that filters should not be used in PgSql, as he said they are "f*cking useless". I told him the same before, but he claimed that they work excellent. This is not true. The PGDBE works excellent, but I mentioned several times that (complex) filters are a heavy p...

Re: Postgre ISAM command

the engineers at Alaska Software have published something that I never understood. The problem is that filters (DbSetFilter/SET FILTER TO) are converted to WHERE-statements for the PG-server, which are executed by the server, and that means that you can use almost nothing in filter expressions. You...

Slavko, I know it's not the same. ;) But maybe it helps Chris to do what he wants to do.

Re: Listbox colours

Roger implemented the "COMBO" clause for DCSAY ... GET, which uses a popup button beside a get field to show a browse for value selections. Maybe this will do the job.
But I also agree with Slavko. Ownerdrawing is no magic, and there are samples for that, even in your eXpress++-installation.
