Re: Printing Job - change paper orientation?

Koen,
Thanks for your reply.
We are trying to do this on Windows, and will have to emulate your solution if an alternative cannot be found.
With the lack of a solution to date, we have already discussed with the client the possibility of making all
pages portrait. If they agree, problem solved :-)
Cheers, Keith

Receive/send Packet

Hi
This has me stumped
I want to take a block of data from document A, and add it to Document B at
the same position and overwriting the data in Document B.
Firstly
C_TEXT(CoreText)
CoreRef:=Open document(PathToFolder+"WAV_Files"+<>Sep+WavFileArray{$i})
//Valid path to file, in system format, not POSIX
SET DOCUMENT POSITION(coreRef;12)
receive packet(CoreRef;CoreText;3000)
CLOSE DOCUMENT(CoreRef)
moves the file pointer correctly but does not return any data in the
variable CoreText, no matter the size of the stopbyte parameter.
OK returns 1 after SET DOCUMENT POSITION
OK returns 0 after Receive packet

secondly, if instead I write ("pad" is a word in the document)
CoreRef:=Open document(PathToFolder+"WAV_Files"+<>Sep+WavFileArray{$i})
SET DOCUMENT POSITION(coreRef;12)
receive packet(CoreRef;CoreText;"pad")
CLOSE DOCUMENT(CoreRef)

CoreRef:=Open document(PathToFolder+"MfiT_Files"+<>Sep+MfiTFileArray{$i})
SET DOCUMENT POSITION(coreRef;12)
SEND PACKET(CoreRef;Coretext)
CLOSE DOCUMENT(CoreRef)
Returns the Text in CoreText, but after Send Packet the file marker is 1 or
2 bytes shorter than after receive variable
as far as I can see the missing bytes are in the middle of the file not at
the start or end.

Installing v14 on Mac with HD formatted Case-sensitive

Hi,

I was recently informed by 4D Inc that v14 will not install on a Mac with hard disk configured with a
case-sensitive format. I have downloaded and tried to run 4D v14.latest without any luck on a 10.7.5
MacPro and a new MacBook air running factory installed 10.10.latest both formatted case-sensative. I
have not been able to find any documentation on this as a v14 requirement, issue, or solution.

Characteristics are identical. After installation of 4d, any attempt to launch 4d quickly starts to open
4d but immediately closes.

Anyone have any suggestions for a workaround, short of reformatting disks? 4d says it is a known issue but
they seem not concerned. I have clients who are currently purchasing new Macs that will come with disks
formatted case sensitive. This could move them off the 4d platform all together. I want to avoid that if possible.

These machines run v12 without any problem.

Re: HTTP request "POST" example

Thanks for the tip on this. I was writing from my Mac but actually doing 4D development in Windows under
VMWare Fusion :)
The "client" that it posting data is a Windows 4D application. Regardless that utility looks very useful.

-- Brad Perkins

* Since you seem to be writing from Outlook on a Mac, here's a OS X program
recommendation:

Rested
$3.99 at the OS X app store:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rested-simple-http-requests/id421879749?mt=12

It lets you craft HTTP requests by hand, setting the method, headers URL
and so on. Super handy. You can work out how to talk to a remote server
this way before doing any coding. Figuring out the right payloads and
headers in the first place is a different matter, but
insert-your-favorite-browser-here's developer tools are usually enough
these days.

Justin Leavens saw I'd written something along the same lines in 4D and
turned me onto this $4 replacement. I use nothing else now.

Exporting on Windows - proper record delimiter

Folks,

I have inherited a database that exports records using BLOB TO TEXT.

The previous developer used Char(10) - Line Feed as a record delimiter.

The database that was receiving these exports now requires the more standard windows record delimiter.

Since I am developing on a Mac, I replaced the Char(10) Line Feed with Char(13) carriage return.

That fails to import properly.

The question is - What is the proper 'standard' for windows record delimiter?

Is it CR + LF : Char(13) + Char(10)?

or the other way around?

I have searched the web and have found the 'true' value is:

ASCII code 30 = RS ( Record separator )

Just wondered what the collected wisdom of 4Ders says.

Thanks,
Walt Nelson (Seattle)

Re: Printing Job - change paper orientation?

Chuck,

> How about setting orientation in the form itself from properties window.
> Does that have any impact

If I don't use a print job, each form uses the page orientation set in it.
But a print job is needed to keep all pages together in 1 doc (pdf).
So, I'm stumped.

If I am the only one in the 4D world who has to generate multiple pages with differing page orientations in a
single print job, I can at least take solace that this is a trail-blazing role :-)

Re: Re: [off] Email & domain hosts

Hi Chip,

I use 1 and 1. They have very low prices, a complete slate of services (nice deals on Virtual Private
Servers), they are easy to use, and they are also quite large.
