Bruce Johnson On Dashboards
DEC 19,2014
This week from CapeSoft will be presenting a new product! From Bruce: I'm pleased to let you know that we'll be releasing a new product this Friday on ClarionLive. We've been doing a lot of work on a business application lately. It became apparent that while the app collected an extraordinary amount of data about the business, and there were plenty of browses and reports and so on, but nothing that offered a "birds eye view" of the whole business as a whole. So we've created a "Dashboard" procedure. This allows you to bring together data from all over the program (and outside the program) in a simple way to give the user that all important insight into their data. A Dashboard without Widgets though is useless, so we've also created a Widget Interface, and a bunch of sample widgets. We've made it easy for you to create your own custom widgets, or for 3rd party products to expose themselves as widgets, so expect to see a lot of new widget types in the future.
Dries Dreissen On Web Sockets With Net Talk
DEC 12,2014
From - Friday December 12th I'm giving a ClarionLive webinar about websockets using Nettalk webserver. Websockets offer many possibilities for websites: realtime - low-overhead - bidirectional communication between server and client. That includes features such as serverside initiated events, communication between browsers like chatting and using other protocols (e.g. RDP) over a websocket. I'll be showing several Nettalk applications that use websockets for different purposes: concurrency checking with a twist, sharing locations on a map between browsers and I'll build a websocket application from scratch. Download example code here: The source code of the demos is included as are the compiled versions of the demos. In the docs folder you'll find the presentation I used during the webinar as well as the step-by-step guides for integrating websockets in a nettalk webserver application. Please note that you won't be able to compile the demos because the websocket-classes are not included. If you are interested in those classes to integrate them in your applications, please send me an email:
Wolfgang Orth And Mike Hanson_ Process Indicators
DEC 05,2014
There has been a lot of discussion recently on the newsgroups about how to show the end-user that a process is taking place, such as an SQL backup or an FTP upload. The suggestion of Bruce and others was to split or branch this Backup-Process into a new, invisible thread, using it for backup. Once it's done, this thread reports back that it has finished. Wolfgang Orth has made a demo of this Notification technique that he will be showing us today! Since this is similar to a technique that Mike Hanson showed us a few years ago, Mike will be joining in to help create the ultimate solution to progress indicators! Web links used in this webinar:

Bruce Johnson_ Resize And Split
NOV 21,2014
This week Bruce will be demonstrating Resize And Split, which is an update to the popular EasyResizeAndSplit from IngasoftPlus! One of the most popular window resizing tools for Clarion programs, EasyResizeAndSplit by IngasoftPlus was discontinued and the product was left unsupported when Clarion 9.1 was released. It was acquired by CapeSoft in October 2014, and released as an all-source-code product that month. CapeSoft Resize And Split is a drop-in replacement for EasyResizeAndSplit. All current template settings are preserved, and there is no effort involved in the upgrade. BONUS!
