    How to force "entry" event when clicking on an empty browser viewport?

    Trapping for MOUSE-SELECT-CLICK of the browse widget does the trick. I put this in the trigger and it changes the viewport color to indicate selection: apply "entry" to browse {&browse-name}. Thanks for the pointer. Another annoyance solved!

    How to force "entry" event when clicking on an empty browser viewport?

    Something that has long bugged me about the browse widget on Windows is that when a browse is not full (i.e., there is empty space on the lower portion of the browse viewport), clicking somewhere in the empty space does not force an 'ENTRY' event. The user must click on either the title bar...

    PDSOE refusing to open a file

    Just a follow-up: Removing and reinstalling OpenEdge solved the problem.

    PDSOE refusing to open a file

    So it's not a "equal to or greater than" thing? Interesting. While the same Java works with OE 12.5 on another PC, I guess this could be a factor.

    PDSOE refusing to open a file

    I am assuming I am good on that front, then, if I understand the version numbering correctly.

    PDSOE refusing to open a file

    I have installed the same version that seems to work fine on another machine: Eclipse Adoptium\jdk-17.0.2.8-hotspot

    PDSOE refusing to open a file

    It is a weird problem, but in the slim chance that someone else has seen this: A fresh install of OE 12.5 64-bit on Windows 10 has a PDSOE that is refusing to open any file. I can choose "File/Open", or drop a file onto an open PDSOE, and all I get is another instance of PDSOE opening up and...

    OpenEdge GUI development tools on 4K laptop screens--yay or nay?

    I am looking at buying a new laptop, probably a ThinkPad variant with a 14-inch screen for the sake of portability. I am considering the 4K screen option. This new machine's primary purpose is OpenEdge development. We do not yet use PDSOE, but I do often use third-party editors. Before...

    Trouble constructing a UNIX statement command line

    Well, that was an assumption on my part, an invalid one as it turns out. The single quotes do indeed show up in the command line when examined via the "ps" command. And with that, my goal has been met--the stripping of form feeds from that output file finally works. Case closed! Thanks for...

    Trouble constructing a UNIX statement command line

    Yes, I am trying to strip form feed characters from the victim file. I see now that I can use "\f" rather than the octal "\o14", making the code a little more readable. Here's some code I am running to test this: define var svFilename as char no-undo init "/u/tmp/reports/KGER10:08:31dat"...

    Trouble constructing a UNIX statement command line

    I am having trouble constructing a "sed" command for execution from a UNIX statement. What I want to send to the shell is this: sed -i'.bak' 's/\o14//g' [Filename_here] But no matter what I've tried, I cannot yet get the single quotes to pass through, as far as I can tell. I am likely...

    Progress OpenEdge Documentation Set for Dash Documentation and Snippets Browser

    For the sake of anyone else stumbling in here looking for these files, some digging through the interwebs turned up a list of other places where the 11.7.2 docset can be found. One such instance is: OpenEdge.11.7.2.docset.tgz

    Progress OpenEdge Documentation Set for Dash Documentation and Snippets Browser

    Asking once again, in the off chance anyone at all is paying attention: Can the download links be fixed? Does anyone have newer versions of this docset?

    Trying to understand LEAVE statement.

    Yes, "why" comments are key. I get so frustrated when working on code that lacks comments of any kind. Especially maddening is the lack of business rules governing the programming decisions made.

    Yep, the download links are still broken. Any chance these can be fixed?

    Windows 10 GUI - how to detect window moved?

    I am trying to figure out how to detect when an OE11 GUI window (on Windows 10) has been moved by the user, and so far have come up empty. I have tried a number of the "Portable Mouse Events" such as "MOUSE-MOVE-CLICK" and "MOUSE-MOVE-UP", but none of them trigger. Can anyone pass along some tips?

    Trying to understand LEAVE statement.

    I consider the LEAVE statement something to be avoided in most cases, akin to GOTO from years gone by. It makes understanding and maintaining code more difficult. Having said that, I will use it (with a block label) in tight FOR EACH loops where I only want to retrieve information from the...

    DATE function oddity

    I was doing some testing on date/time import and conversion functions we had written when I ran across a gotcha with the DATE function. It seems to be perfectly fine with non-numeric characters for the year portion of a date string, ignoring them completely and using whatever (leading) numeric...
