  • DBIDs and 16.2

    Hi guys, I'm having some issues with our migration to 16.2. I've got several SKILL programs that will query the database and select a group of DBIDs. The new version seems to be refreshing the DBIDs at will for no reason whatsoever. For example: 1. Get a list of all the DBIDs for all DRC violations...

  • Form checklist question

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone know if it is necessary to check each setting on a checklist? I have a long list of checks like the ones shown below. I could use axlFormGetField( _ns_pdf_outform "300_dpi") to get status for just that one field. I'm more interested in just getting the one...

  • Re: Problems with running scripts inside skill in 16.2

    Hi, Thanks for your help on this. I found out that my command was not registered with any ?cmdType - and hence defaults to interactive. So setting it to general fixed the problem. I'll however try the suggestion with the axlShell(runScript) also, sometimes assigning to a variable first fixes some...

  • Re: Starting an External Program

    You can use the system or shell commands. I often use axlRunBatchDBProgram: axlRunBatchDBProgram("myCmdName", "myCmd.exe", ?noUnload t, ?silent t, ?noProgress t)

  • Re: How to change the Shape fill style

    I raised a service request that should have seen this fixed in 16.0. I quick test gives me no problems in 16.01. You need to write some repeatable code and submit it as a new service request. Dave
