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

Thanks to all for the greetings.

I still enjoy working and I miss our gatherings.

I hope to be still doing this in 2026 (40 years since I started with Clipper), but the future is not ours to see. Que Sera, Sera.

Re: Windows Server File Write

Are you using Advantage Server?

It will write to temporary files during some processes and then rename them.

Re: Windows Server File Write

Are you sure that it isn't another process that overwrote the file?

If you renamed it from the .$$$ back to .DBF would it be a correct database?

Re: Autorefresh

Are you saying that you rebuild the array and it does not display the correct contents on autorefresh?

Are you updating the array by calling DC_SetScopeArray( aNewArray ) ?

Re: A web service for your data

I also used a pfx file with its key, as a certificate, but it never worked. I also had problems wih a pfx file. It would load and register ok, but after a while the service would lock up. I wrote a timer that would restart the service when it was idle for a time and that worked better but was not f...

Re: A web service for your data

Will licensed release be shipped with source as with Express? Everything I have ever included with eXpress++ or other donations have always included source code. This is the way of the world today, and it makes all of us better. I guess I will need to give this a higher priority, because I received...

Re: A web service for your data

Here is a simple client program that I used to test the SQLQuery endpoint that I wrote for a customer. His data is all DBFNTX. #INCLUDE "dcdialog.CH" FUNCTION Main() LOCAL GetList[0], cSql := "", cSite, oHttp, cResponse, oResp, cDomain, nMaxRows := 10 cDomain := DC_IniRead('WebClient.ini','SYSTEM','...

Re: A web service for your data

Will be this on next update subscription (price ?) Yes, it will. But I am going to also make this available to anyone on this forum, because it is basically a sample program that works with most Xbase++ 2.0 releases that have web classes like HttpEndpoint, WebHandler, HttpClient and functions like ...

Re: A web service for your data

This is 100% Xbase++ code. I have one configuration that uses https and the other 2 are http, because they are on private networks. Here is a portion of the code: soHttpEndpoint := MyHttpEndpoint():new(nPort) IF 'HTTPS:' $ Upper(scPublicHost) lStarted := soHttpEndpoint:setCertificateFromFile( DC_Cur...

A web service for your data

I have created several web services for eXpress++ customers which allow remote access to DBFNTX and DBFCDX data via a web browser or an Xbase++ program. Each of these servers use the same architecture. The only difference is the custom endpoints, which all follow a simple architecture. For example, ...
