    Hi Coralie,

    None of the methods in the log are in the JsNavMenu library so I don’t know where they have come from.
    I guess you need to track down what is calling SQL.Startup_Task/$resume

    Also, is $close_Session_windows designed to close ‘window’ classes or ‘remote form’ classes?
    As you say Studio is ‘crashing’, it may be trying to reference…[Read more]

    Hi Coralie,
    I haven’t studied the Navigation Menu Object before but just took a look at the sample library.
    The sample library does not crash when I use it, so I assume it’s something that happens in the On evMenuEntryClicked event.
    The sample library has:

    On evMenuEntryClicked
    If not(iNavObj.$handleclick($cfield,pLineTag))
    Do…[Read more]

    Hi Coralie,
    The first thing I would ask is what browser you are using.
    Secondly, you say ‘once I changed the page’…do you mean that you have performed a $changeform?

  • Hi shital,

    I believe you are looking for the event ‘evAfter’
    Remember to turn it on in he edit control’s property ‘$events’

    Remember that this event will trigger if the user clicks on another control (not just upon tab).
    As far as I can see, there is no way of detecting specifically if the user hit the ‘Tab’ key.


  • Hi Monnet,

    Calculate lvPlatform as sys(8)
    returns the platform type of the current Omnis program as a string: ‘MAC64’, ‘WIN32’, ‘WIN64’, ‘UNIX’

    Hi Dario,
    The slides etc are only available at Euromnis. They are stored on a network drive for participants at the conference to obtain during or after sessions but the network is taken down on Thursday evening. We don’t then publish them on the website.

  • Hi Ghiara,
    On a fat client window, the only option I can think of is to use a background text object.
    Your users would have to enter their text in a ‘markup’ form, with tags that you interpret.
    This would give you the ability to:
    – bold
    – underline
    – include fields
    It would not permit ‘tabs’, which really are a Word Processing function and would…[Read more]

  • At Euromnis 2018, some of us started looking at how session pools are used by row and list variables.

    The Omnis manuals offer advice to define a row variable from a sql class and then assign a session object to it. That session object is held as an instance variable or task variable within the remote task.

  • Hi Patricia,

    The ‘Too many workstations in use’ is an error presented by Omnis when more than the licenced number of users is trying to open an Omnis application or datafile. So it is possible that you do not have the required number of licences.

    However, there are other possibile causes associated with file sharing across the network.
    When…[Read more]

  • Hi all,

    I’m trying out the use of the sixth parameter in $makepool. Referred to as ‘initmethod’, it allows the developer to specify an initialisation method for each session that is created in the pool.

    Sure enough, my method is called once for each session in the pool and the first parameter passed to my intimethod is an object reference to the…[Read more]

  • Hi all. Can anyone remind me of how to capture a user clicking on the Close box in Omnis and override the behaviour.

    In particular, if Omnis is running on a Windows IIS server, we want to catch an accidental ‘close’ initiated by a system admin and prompt them with a message, saying ‘Are you sure you want to close Omnis and close all web…[Read more]

    Hi Ghiara. I am not sure what the problem is here. I think either you are trying to stop a record section overflowing onto the next page, or you are trying to print the totals at the foot of the first page. Rocco suggested something to help with the first problem.

    If you have the second problem (you want to place the totals at the bottom of the…[Read more]

  • We’re doing some preliminary work on a SQL migration project and came across an interesting situation.
    I hope others can confirm/deny whether our analysis is correct.
