Fake Maximize and Tabs, We're Winging It Part 2!
APR 29,2022
The journey continues!
Fake Maximize and Tabs, We're Winging It!
APR 22,2022
Once an mdi child is maximized, all mdi children are maximized. This is not always desirable, and the solution is to "fake" maximize the MDI child windows. Today we'll begin to template that, plus add a feature where the caption is removed so the fake maximized window can't be moved (and will appear "docked"). Also, as a bonus, we want to add tabs to the top for switching between fake maximized mdi child windows! And we're winging the whole thing!

John’s Birthday Webinar ON HIS ACTUAL BIRTHDAY!! It's a Panel!!
MAR 18,2022
This week, we've assembled a panel including Bruce Johnson, Andy Wilton, and Mike Hanson to answer your Clarion-related questions!

For example: Applications are changing, and how people interact with applications is changing. What worked well yesterday, doesn't work so well today. What changes in your existing app's design should you be making to meet your user's needs? Should you be considering mobile? Should you be writing your own accounting routines or hooking in to existing service via API calls? Or is everything fine just the way it is?

Creating A TouchScreen Designer using noyantis wrappers!
MAR 04,2022
John says:

Our POS program has had a Touch Screen designer for over 20 years. Written using Clarion controls, it works well. But the button drawing can be a bit slow, and the designer looks "old". Today I'll be showing how I've used the Flowgraph wrapper from noyantis, along with the Property Grid and Report Control to update our Touch interface.
Using Clarion Reports and Classes to Create Another Kind of Template
FEB 25,2022
Mike says:

I've been building amplifiers, which requires that you mount modules in cases. To do this, you need to drill holes, and you have to figure how where to drill them.

My solution was a program that would programmatically create controls on a Clarion report, representing the various modules and where to drill the holes. You could then print and cut those out, and tape them to the case.

Protecting Global Non-Threaded Data With Critical Sections - Going Where Many Fear To Tread!!
DEC 03,2021
Over the past several weeks, we've been mentioning how you should avoid global non-threaded data, but when you want to use it, protect it with a critical section. It's been a while since we explained how to do that. I'm going to cover a range of approaches. This will help people to do it when they really need to, or make them realize that they should just find another way.
