Re: Convert Ansi or OEM String to UTF-8

Hi, Pedro.

Try Pablos functions, they work well, and I can't confirm they're eating ressources. Just include ot4xb.ch in your source files, link ot4xb.lib to your app and deliver ot4xb.dll with it. https://blog.xbwin.com/

Re: Convert Ansi or OEM String to UTF-8

Look at the docs, Pedro: "Note: Str2Unicode returns a string in UTF-16 Little Endian encoding, which is the native encoding used for Unicode character strings on the Windows platform." And, above: "The primary use is in conjunction with the native platform API." Str2Unicode is used to send parameter...

Re: dcbrowsecolumn ...SORT LEFTBUTTON

We checked that with our users some years ago. Most of them would expect to have the chance to move the column with the left button (hold + move). They would try to sort with a double click of the left mouse button. Just one click with the left mouse button is not what they expect as the way to sort...

Re: Fatal error XBT047 - System memory exhausted

Do you use 1.9SL1? There was/is a problem with the aimplib.exe tool on Windows 10 systems, which ran out of memory when building the lib images. The suggestion from Alaska was to replace it with the version from Xbase++ 2.0, which is fully compatible.

Re: xBase++ QR Code print for tax authorities pruposes.

Hi, Pedro. Maybe this is a good moment to migrate a professional report writing tool like "List & Label" (www.combit.net), which will increase the quality of your app and provide stuff like 2D-barcodes out of the box and without additional programming. And lots of other features. It is possible to p...

Re: Testing

@Chris: That was 7.44 A.M. local time. In my twenties or thirties, that would have been homecoming time. But now and since I have a nine year old son, it's late in the morning. (My son wasn't always nine years old. He is now.)

Re: DC_XbpBrowse:itemRbDown

This happend with earlier versions of Xbase++ 2.0 aswell. The reason is the iVar "ColumnPos", which you introduced for 2.0 and which is used in DC_XbpBrowse:itemRbDown to set the cursor on a right-click - the code from _DCXBPROW.PRG I posted before. If I recalculate oColumn:ColumnPos when a column i...

Re: DC_XbpBrowse:itemRbDown

I use eXpress++ 2.0.166 with latest Xbase++ 2.0.

See pics attached!
1. click1.png: Right-click on column #2 (header "2") -> cursor stays at column #2.
2. click2.png: Right-click on column #3 (header "4") -> cursor moves to column #4.
