Styled text

I want to style text and put it into into arrays, to be displayed in a listbox's multi-styled column. I'd like
to use 4d's styled text commands, but I don't have a window open when I'm building the arrays, so I've no text
object on which to use them.

Is there a corresponding set of commands that work on text variables? I'm thinking in particular of an
equivalent of ST SET ATTRIBUTES. I know I could build the text myself using <span>, but I don't want to
re-invent the wheel.

How can I find a method "name" based on the method ID reported in the MSC

Hi All,
Using V13.5 on W7 and Mac.
How can I solve this riddle:
built a small db in v13.5
start the MSC, click Verify, click "Verify the Application"
Anomalies have been detected.  So I open the "open log file". 

in the log-file I find "Check Orphan Methods"
-The method resource CC4D of id 1234 is not used anywhere-
-The method resource CC4D of id 5678 is not used anywhare-
etc. 

Now HOW can I find the method with id 1234 in the method Explorer where I have methods with a NAME.  
In other words: How can I relate the method NAME with the ID 1234 or vise versa ????

WordPress + 4D

I'm looking for someone who has experience connecting WordPress (and PHP) to 4D. The Active4D/4D side is
ready to go. I just need help with programming that will allow WordPress (and PHP) to post to 4D.

Problem with 4D View in a list form

Hi

I have always used 4D View objects in detail forms. Today I thought I 
would try using them in list forms.
I can't get it to work.  I get Error 14. External area expected, on any 
PV call.   The same object works in detail forms.
This is V13.5 on Windows.  The docs say this should work.  I have tried 
the PV calls in 'On Display Detail' event.

Any ideas?

Uist Macdonald

Font Problems with Upgrading

I realize this may be an old question but I have not found much of an answer, from the KB files or tech support.

Every major upgrade resizes some fonts and changes the font for some others. Using style sheets solves some
of the problems but not all and I have more customization than style sheets easily accommodate.

The related problem is that using the Monotype Sorts font for check-marks and large bullets does not seem to
work in v14, even when saved as a style.

I wonder if the switch to Unicode is part of the explanation?

Is there a better way to do this? I have hundreds of layouts which require editing in these instances and it is
a huge disincentive to upgrade.

Using email and IMAP to import notes, documents and pictures

I've recently started using this approach allowing users to update the
database with notes, comments, documents and pictures. It's pretty cool so
I thought I'd share it.

The setup:
this is a 4D server app supporting a mix of 4D client users and web users.
The web users are both employees (installers and field employees) and
customers.

First the need:
​employees need to be able to update job records with photos and comments.
We need to be able to selectively share some of this information with our
customers.

Prior solutions have involved web forms for entering comments and uploading
the photos. Nothing new there and pretty common. The problems we had was
the time it would take to upload picture files across varying mobile
connections. This is no trivial matter it turns out.

The New Approach
​Now all this input is handled by emails for non-4D client users. For
employees they click the same link they always have on their webform but I
use mailto to open a new message in their mail app.

The benefits I've seen are:

   - ​users are more familiar with their own mail app than my web forms
   - they are also more familiar with their mail app's attachment handling
   - mail apps are better at managing dropped connections, partial
   transmissions and such

Application Window

Is there a dependable way of retrieving the application window ID in 4D?  I would like to keep it hidden
'always'.    I have been using -1 in the Set Window Rect command but the docs say that is for Windows only.  Does
anyone know if there is a particular order to the array created by Window List?

Regards,

Input Form Event

I have an input form for Company that has a subform for payments.
When I double click on the subform I go to the input form for that table/record.
When I exit the Payment input form and go back to the Company Input Form what events can I used to trigger a method?
Where is this documented?

Managing Picture Arrays in a Listbox

I would like the user to manage images by adding, deleting and replacing
items in a Listbox much like http://www.fortuna.com.au/4D_issues/moxmgr.png

My Listbox has 5 columns.

This is how I plan to manage it:

If a row is empty each column will be initialized with a 1 pixel by 1 pixel
image. 4D V13.5 allows you to set a name to the picture when it is stored
in a field or variable.

So if the Listbox is empty. Adding the first picture will add it to the
first column in the first row and the remaining columns will be loaded with
the 1pixel image and will be set with a picture file name called "1pixel"

To find the insertion point I can loop through the rows and the columns
till I find a picture with a picture file name "1pixel"

Does anyone have better ideas? I am not up to v14 yet or C_Object would be
a better option to store the Listbox Arrays along with the Picture Names.

(Sent without much thinking..)

FInd in design - object properties

does any version of 4D show method calls which are in object properties?
ex: Listbox foreground text color??

Thanks
