Sometimes the data you receive using a combo box, does not contain what you are looking for. Instead of exiting and then adding the data to the lookup list and coming back to your original form, we will use an Editable Combo to add the data ' on the fly'.

It's been a hectic month with client projects entering their final test phases and small little issues appearing that was never considered. This gives us a very nice experience base for any future Clarion -> Windev Conversion efforts.

Windev/Webdev 16 has a very nice setup builder program that you can use to install your products.
It allows you to setup just about anything that windev allows you to do - HyperfileSql Setup, data modification, etc.

 

The second nice thing is that the source code for this setup program is available for you to tweak.

One of the few controls that Clarion developers normally hold up as a major reason why they don't switch to another development environment is Ultratree.

Ultratree gives a lot of functionality, and one of these functionalities is to easily create a tree in a single table.

Now with Windev 16 and higher, you need not feel left out.

To keep the complexisty of an analysis display down to something we can easily interperate, folders can be used to group files together.

 

The question is.  How do you link files together that are in different folders?

When you design a quick prototype, you often create some windows (or pages) without defining any data files. When the prototype is validated, and only then, you decide to create the structures of the data files.

Do away with having to START a thread, allocate it memory, etc… (grin)

 

In Windev, go to your procedure and on the right-hand side of the procedure header bar, click on the timer icon and set your preference.

Clarion dates start at 28 Dec 1800 and Windev Dates start at 1 january 1583, but the function Integertodate works from 1 january 1800
Thanks to Andy (www.ccscowboy.com) here is a neat little formula to convert clarion dates to windev dates.

Mydate is date= Integertodate(DateDifference("18000101","18001228")+cwValue)

Interesting Runtime Error – but the error did not display the line that was the cause of the error, but rather the preceding wlanguage line.

It is unbelievable how easy it is to consume web services with Windev.

I imported the web service WSDL file and Windev auto creaded all the objects for me to call. One little problem I had, and I suspect more it's the service provider that is at fault here .. .a tdate in windev was not recognised by the provider although it is specified in their WDSL.
