(click here to view information on the prior build --9159)

General
  • Minor improvements have been made to the activation system program, pxpreg. It will now prompt for the entry of an activation key if one is not supplied on the command line.
  • System font processing is now more consistent. A font specification, such as ",0.5", now takes the current graphical font and applies the size to it. Also, the built-in logical font names *, *GUIFONT, and *SYSFONT can have their size/attributes overridden.
  • In Nomads, a new entry "GUI Control Font" has been added in all font selections to allow for the specification of the graphical font defined by the operating system.
Directives
  • The DIRECTORY directive on Unix/Linux now will accept spaces within the name of directory. In addition, opening a directory for reading (OPEN or SELECT) can now specify directories with spaces in their pathnames.
Functions
  • The XEQ function has been enhanced so that if an asterisk is given as an argument list, the function issues a PERFORM instead of a CALL.
Mnemonics
  • none
Parameters
  • The ODBC interface now supports a new IGNORE_NODATA parameter that can be used to force the system to report a SQL_NODATA back to the application. By default, this parameter is ON. It may be set to OFF by adding IGNORE_DATA=NO to the [ODB] open command string or the [ODBC] section of the INI file. Setting the parameter OFF will cause the SQL_NO_DATA error to return as an error status.
Properties
  • The treeview now properly supports the 'Backcolor and 'Textcolor properties and include a new 'LineColor attribute which allows to the definition of the colour of the lines within a treeview.
Utilities
  • none

In addition, the following standard ProvideX problems were resolved in this build:
