  • DEAR NET MAKE - can you please update the HELP (crucial)

    I can live with English bugs, typos and poor style in documentation (although it really doesn't create professional image for Net Make), but I cannot live,work with NO or BAD documentation, especially parts which are crucial for development. I think the MACRO section need an ambulance!
    First of all I would like to see it as a separate file, then it has to be updated, then there is a need for a SEARCH function (which seem to be non-present)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I noticed several MACRO's are not up to date, and there are also macros used in examples which have no documentation in the HELP file.
    For example - the Help says:

    sc_reset_apl_conf ("Application", "Property") This macro deletes all the modifications effected by "sc_apl_conf" macro.


    but there is no documentation for: "sc_apl_conf" macro

    Maybe this can help.

    sc_apl_conf("Application", "Property", "Value")
    This macro allows to modify the property of the application. The user can determine if a Form will start in insert mode, or a Grid starts by filter, etc.

    This macro must be used by one application to modify the properties of another application.


    Properties for Form applications

    Property Value Description
    start new Forces the form to start in the insert mode in order to add new records.
    insert on/off Qualifies (on) or unqualifies (off) the "add new" button to allow the addtion of new records.
    update on/off Qualifies (on) or unqualifies (off) the "save" button on the form.
    delete on/off Qualifies (on) or unqualifies (off) the "delete" button on the form.
    field_display_off field Dinamically hides a field.
    field_display_on field Dinamically shows a field.
    field_readonly field Dinamically set the "readonly" attribute in order to select the field.
    rows Forces the number of lines for each page (only for form of multiple records).
    rows_ins Forces the number of lines for insert (only for form of multiple records).

    Property for Grid applications

    Property Value Description
    start filter Forces the Grid to start by the filter.
    cols Forces the number of columns. (vertical and slide kind)
    rows Forces the number of lines per page.
    lig_edit on/off Qualifies (on) or unqualifies (off) the record edition. (the pencil icon)
    Property for all applications

    Property Value Description
    exit apl/url Forces application to exit to a specified location.
    Ex. 1: Forces the "my_form" application to start in the addition mode.
    sc_apl_conf("my_form", "start", "new");

    Ex. 2: Doesn't allow the "my_form" application make addition of new registers.
    sc_apl_conf("my_form", "add", "off");

    Ex. 3: Sets "my_field" on the application "my_form" (readonly attribute) to "true" dinamically.
    sc_apl_conf("my_form", "field_display_off", "my_field");

    Ex. 4: Shows "my_field" on the application "my_form" dinamically.
    sc_apl_conf("my_form", "field_display_on", "my_field");

    Ex. 5: Forces the "my_grid" application to start by filter.
    sc_apl_conf("my_grid", "start", "filter");

    Ex. 6: Forces the "my_grid" application to show 20 lines.
    sc_apl_conf("my_grid", "rows", "20");

    Ex. 7: Hides "my_field" on the application "my_form" dinamically.
    sc_apl_conf("my_form", "field_display_off", "my_field");

    Ex. 8: Use the button on the toolbar menu.
    if ({sc_menu_item} == "btn_1")
    {
    sc_apl_conf("form_customer", "start", "new");
    }

      YES, I found it few minutes later on-line after I posted my message, but I have had no way of removing my post.
      Somehow my local Help file is not up to date.

      Thank you anyway. Art
