    Question Before Image buffer waits & After Image buffer waits

    OpenEdge 11.3.3, Sun Solaris SPARC 64Bit ( Sun V490+ 1800 Mhz with 64 GB memory - database files residing on ZFS file systems on a SAN ). I know - we should have migrated to a more decent hardware on RHEL a long time ago and I wish I could do something about the SAN but I can't. A migration...

    Create Excel File

    That you can only find in the documentation of the 3rd party com object. In the case of Excel, Word and other MS Office stuff Google is your best friend. A search for "excel com interface" comes up with a lot of stuff that might help you. The com object viewer from Progress is just a first start...

    Resolved Static instance failed to load. Cannot reference class xyz (14631)

    On a hunch: When you reference classes in procedures which interface has changed - depending on the order which they are compiled you might hit that error. I know this shouldn't happen because every class referenced in another class or procedure should be compiled up front, but my experience...

    Comment using .NET to test if a process exists.

    As far as I know you can't directly cast a .NET array to ABL extents. You need to capture the output as .NET System.Array, iterate over the array and cast each individual member to what you expect. define variable currentDomain as System.AppDomain no-undo. define variable...

    Are the methods you are passing residing in the ABL class in which you are invoking this?

    Question Translate C# Code To Abloo When Using .net

    As per my experience - YMMV - mostly replace the dot '.' with colon ':'. Sometimes - when the output of the .NET object is an Array I use the .NET Array object and iterate through the array casting to the particular object type. Heavy Regards, RealHeavyDude.

    Resolved System.dll Notfoundexception: Unable To Load Dll

    That's a behavior on Windows which I don't like: Everybody's need to put everything into the Windows PATH. If you display the PATH variable on a typical Windows system you will find all kinds of crap on it. This is, where I think, Progress is superior with the PROPATH ...

    Resolved System.dll Notfoundexception: Unable To Load Dll

    As far as I know, all assemblies you want to use in a .NET or ABL for .NET project must be installed in the Windows assembly cache. The assembly cache is usually located C:\Windows\assembly. From what I know the installation of the 3rd part product should install it there. Plus, you need to add...

    Question Android To Progress

    You need to understand that the client/server architecture you might be familiar with in your current application won't do. You need to come up with a multi-layered architecture to support applications on mobile devices. There is no simple answer like install an app on your mobile device on...

    Question Android To Progress

    You never directly access any database directly from an Android device. It does not matter which database it is. Please don't get me wrong, but your problem is that you want to access "a" database directly from an Android device. You need to re-think and build a backend architecture that is...

    Question Smartobject Into A Classic Dialog Window (non-smartwindow)

    The amount of work and research to understand frameworks instead of hardcore coding each bit and byte is always a trade off. For one, in the case of ADM2/Dynamics most Progress customers I knew abandoned them for that very reason. Secondly, Progress was notorious for not providing sufficient...

    Question Smartobject Into A Classic Dialog Window (non-smartwindow)

    The smart frame is a persistent procedure too. You can only drop it onto a smart window or smart dialog for the very same reason. There is a fundamental difference between widgets - which ABL built-in objects - like a fill-in or a combo-box, and smart objects of the ADM2/Dynamics framework -...

    Question Smartobject Into A Classic Dialog Window (non-smartwindow)

    Hi Altair, the standard containers miss the functionality to instantiate the smart objects - their frames can only handle widgets. When you drop a smart object on a smart window or smart dialog you might notice that the AppBuilder will automatically maintain the read-only "adm-create-objects"...

    Httpget And Json

    Don't get me wrong - but that's why I never use the plain vanilla release and always wait at least for the first service pack.
