Re: v12 - Select Folder & Mounted volumes

Chip,

Change your “base” to 

/Volumes/
or
Volumes:<mounted folder name>:

Select folder returns just the mounted folder name… prepend “volumes:…” to the name and it should
work… you can even do this for the local drive. ie. volumes:macintosh hd: … and that should work too.

v12 - Select Folder & Mounted volumes

v12 - Mac OS (mounted volumes are OS X too)
I currently have 2 remote volumes, on different machines, mounted.

As is the the standard, the base drive on the mounted OS X volumes are 
called 'Macintosh HD', as is the the primary drive of the local machine.

When trying to create a file on one of the mounted volumes (select 
folder - create document)
Create Document was failing with an invalid path. Upon examination of 
the selected folder path, the path looked like this:
Macintosh HD: Folder1: Folder2:

This particular path does not exist on the local drive.
Basically the Select Folder path returned does NOT seem to specify the 
fact that the folder selected is on a remote volume. (Mount point 
inclusion in folder path).

Any ideas to work around this?

Thanks
Chip

Moving the 4D app onto a secondary monitor

Hello,

I'm running 4D from a 13 inch Macbook with a secondary monitor. I'm trying
to shift the 4D app plus it's toolbars, etc onto the secondary monitor but
I can only seem to move over the open windows but the toolbar remains fixed
on the primary display.

Does anyone know a way around this?

Thanks,
Nick

Coverflow web area demo from previous Summit

Does anyone remember the Coverflow web area demo from a few Summits ago? If you do, could you point me to the
HTML/CSS for this?

I could be imagining it also... the ones I've found on the web aren't nearly as nice as what I'm remembering.

What's the max # of files for folder?

The discussion about generating huge arrays using DOCUMENT LIST recursively
reminded me of wondering about this. I have a document management module
and so have control over how many files are stored in a given directory.
When I first wrote it I was looking around for information about what the
optimum max number of files in a single folder or directory was. At the
time it seemed a relatively low number. I think I settled on 200 or 300 per
directory.

After hearing some stories of folders with ~150k docs (which does seem
excessive) I'm curious what the consensus is now.

How critical is it with respect to OS?

Does document size matter or simply count?

Re: Broken Pipe. Do I need to call a plumber?

Thanks. I’ve seen lots of connection-related errors before and never gotten anything like this before. Strange.

> Pipe comes from what you might think it does, plumbing. In plumbing you put water (or something else) in one
end of a pipe and it comes out the other end. This term was also used for network connections. A connection is
opened (a pipe) anything you drop in one side comes out the other.
> 
> A broken pipe is a connection that is open on one end but not the other. You put something in one end and the
other end didn't get it.
> 
> The term writing comes from file creation. Sending data to a document is writing to the document. Sending
data via a network works just like sending it to a document... so you write to a network and read from a
network. Or even write to a pipe and read from a pipe.
> 
> So in short for your case, you need to look for a broken network connection. A firewall that closed the
connection, a loose or faulty network wire, a bad router, stuff like that.

Creating new database from XML file

I tried to be clever and save some work by turning a list of fields (columns) in an Excel spreadsheet into
fields in a new database. What I did was create a simple database with a few fields, export the structure as
XML, edited it with new field definitions, and a few other tweaks I felt reasonable. When I try to create a
new database from this XML, I get the following Alert:

Impossible to import the structure.
The xml structure elements definition is probably damaged.

and only a barebones database gets created (no tables and fields).

For all practical purposes, the only tweaks I made to the exported XML are:
1. Replaced the fields with my field names, types and lengths if Alpha.
2. Replaced the UUIDs with all zeros (figuring they would be assigned actual values internally).
      Note: I tried leaving the UUIDs out but that didn't help.
3. Edited the package name, structure_file_name and data_file_path.
4. Changed the displayable_fields_count to 124 (2 times my 62 Fields) based on the fact that the export for
my simple database with 3 fields had a displayable_fields_count=6

All field names are 27 characters or less and no special characters or spaces. 4D v13.5, OS X 10.8.5

Here's my XML (not all fields shown) . Hope someone can see what might be wrong with it. Also wish for a more
specific error message.

Thanks, Mark

Position of object on form - not opened

Hi all.
Using 4D v15.2 I would like to find out the position of a button on a form that has not been opened yet.
The command OBJECT GET COORDINATES return all zeros for a button on a form that’s not currently open.
Is my wish possible without a plugin?
With a plug in?

“Why?” I hear you ask.
Well, I had an idea to dynamically position a window with the centre of a given button, on the form about to be
opened, to be centred on the current mouse click.

I know it can be done using hard coded or preset “lookup” positions but I’d like to try it dynamically
without that hassle.
Moving the window after it opens can look a bit weird.
TIA, KG
