<appendix id="apxDeprecated" xreflabel="deprecated"><title>Deprecated Classes, Methods, Functions, and Routines</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary></indexterm>
<para>
Beginning with ooDialog 4.2.0, many methods and some classes are deprecated. All the deprecated classes and methods
are listed in this section, along with information on how to replace the deprecated classes and methods. In general,
the deprecated <emphasis role="italic">classes</emphasis> are no longer needed and references to them can simply be
removed. Most, but not all, of the deprecated <emphasis role="italic">methods</emphasis> can simply be replaced with
a another method.
</para>
<para>
It is the <emphasis role="italic">intent</emphasis> that older programs using deprecated methods will run without
having to make changes to the code. This has been fairly well tested, but as with all intentions, there may be some
cases where the intent was not satisfied. If such a case is found, it should be brought to the attention of the
developers. However, there are some situations where <emphasis role="italic">internal use
only</emphasis> methods have been used, and there are a few deprecated methods that were simply buggy. Programs that
no longer run because they used <emphasis role="italic">internal use only</emphasis> methods are expected to no
longer run if the internal implementation is changed. Programs that only worked because of a bug, are also likely to
have a problem when the bug is fixed.
</para>
<para>
There are a number of reasons why classes or methods have been deprecated. Many methods, probably the majority have
been deprecated due to the effort to <link linkend="termMethodNameUnification">unify</link> the naming of methods. The
deprecated classes are primarily classes that overcomplicated the programming task, for no good reason. There should be no
need to inherit the <emphasis role="italic">AdvancedControls</emphasis> mixin class in order to use some controls in a
dialog, but not have to inherit the class for other controls. Some few methods are deprecated because their implementation
is buggy, and a few others are deprecated because they used or relied on programming techniques for Windows 3.1 that no
longer work well in a modern Windows version.
</para>
<para>
In all cases, deprecated methods should never be used in new code. In addition, programmers are strongly encouraged to
migrate existing code away from deprecated classes and methods. Deprecated methods usually forward to their
replacement methods. Programmers can eliminate this level of redirection by removing the deprecated methods.
Deprecated methods and classes are <emphasis role="italic">not</emphasis> documented in the ooDialog reference,
except as listed in this section. If the programmer needs to look up the documentation for a deprecated class or
method, he should simply replace that class or method in his code.
</para>
<section id="deprecatedBaseClasses"><title>Deprecated Classes</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>classes</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
All <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/> base and mixin classes are listed in this section. In general, the deprecated classes
are simply not needed anymore, and the programmer need do nothing to replace them.
</para>
<section id="deprecatedAdvancedControls"><title>AdvancedControls Mixin Class</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>AdvancedControls Class</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
This class is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. The ooDialog framework no <link linkend="sctHistory">longer</link> makes a
distinction between some types of dialog controls, and how to use the controls. I.e., the programmer no longer needs to
inherit a special class to use some of the dialog controls. All the methods of the AdvancedControls have been moved into
the appropriate dialog class. Therefore the programmer does not need to do anything to use any dialog control in any
dialog. In new code simply omit inheriting AdvancedControls. In old code, <emphasis role="italic">inherit
AdvancedControls</emphasis> can be deleted from any dialog class declaration and the program will behave the same.
</para> </section>
<section id="deprecatedMessageExtensions"><title>MessageExtensions Mixin Class</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>MessageExtensions Class</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
This class is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. The MessageExtensions class has been renamed to the
<xref linkend="clsEventNotification"/> class. In addition, the EventNotification class is
inherited by the <xref linkend="chpDialogObject"/> object so that the programmer need do nothing special
to use event notifications in any dialog. In new code simply omit inheriting MessageExtensions. In old code, <emphasis
role="italic">inherit MessageExtensions</emphasis> can be deleted from any dialog class declaration and the program
will behave the same.
</para>
</section>
<section id="deprecatedPlainUserDialog" xreflabel="PlainUserDialog"><title>PlainUserDialog Class</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>PlainUserDialog Class</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
This class is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. The ooDialog framework no <link linkend="sctHistory">longer</link> makes a
distinction between a PlainUserDialog and an
<xref linkend="clsUserDialog"/>. Directly
subclass the <emphasis role="italic">Userdialog</emphasis> instead of the <emphasis
role="italic">PlainUserDialog</emphasis>.
</para>
</section>
<section id="deprecatedCategoryDialog" xreflabel="CategoryDialog"><title>CategoryDialog Class</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>CategoryDialog Class</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
This class is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. The <computeroutput>CategoryDialog</computeroutput>
class was never documented well, was hard for most users to understand, was buggy, and was difficult to debug. In
addition, the dialog pages of the <computeroutput>CategoryDialog</computeroutput> functioned using a completely
different paradigm than all other dialogs. This was not only confusing, but <emphasis
role="italic">unnecessary</emphasis> to begin with.
</para>
<para>
Use the <xref linkend="clsPropertySheetDialog"/>, or a <xref linkend="clsTab"/>
control with one of the <xref linkend="sctControlDialogs"/> dialog classes, to replace the
<computeroutput>CategoryDialog</computeroutput> class.
</para>
</section>
<section id="deprecatedPropertySheet" xreflabel="PropertySheet"><title>PropertySheet Class</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>PropertySheet Class</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
This class is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. The <computeroutput>PropertySheet</computeroutput>
class was never documented well, was hard for most users to understand, was buggy, and was difficult to debug. In
addition, the dialog pages of the <computeroutput>PropertySheet</computeroutput> functioned using a completely
different paradigm than all other dialogs. This was not only confusing, but <emphasis
role="italic">unnecessary</emphasis> to begin with.
</para>
<para>
Use the <xref linkend="clsPropertySheetDialog"/>, or a <xref linkend="clsTab"/>
control with one of the <xref linkend="sctControlDialogs"/> dialog classes, to replace the
<computeroutput>PropertySheet</computeroutput> class.
</para>
</section>
</section>
<section id="deprecatedDialogMethods" xreflabel="deprecated"><title>Deprecated Dialog Methods</title>
<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>dialog object methods</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
<link linkend="apxDeprecated">Deprecated</link> dialog methods and their replacement methods are listed in this section.
</para>
<section><title>captureMouse</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Use the <xref linkend="clsMouse"/>
object methods directly.
</para>
</section>
<section><title>checkMenuItem</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Use the <xref linkend="chpMenus"/>
object methods directly.

</section>
<section><title>clearButtonRect</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Replace this method with the <xref linkend="mthClearControlRect"/> method.
</para>
</section>
<section><title>clearMessages</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. It does nothing.
</para>
</section>
<section><title>combineELwithSB</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. It uses an outdated process to add function to a
dialog that is similar to a modern up-down control. The method does not work properly. The <xref linkend="clsUpDown"/>
dialog control should be used directly to replace this method.
</para>
</section>

<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Replace this method with the
<xref linkend="mthConnectTreeView"/> method.
</para>
</section>
<section><title>deInstall</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. It does nothing and always returns 0. In older
versions of ooDialog, the <emphasis role="italic">deInstall</emphasis>() method was used to deregister the
external functions with the API manager. This mechanism is no longer needed using the modern APIs introduced in
ooRexx 4.0.0.
</para>

<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Use the <xref linkend="chpMenus"/>
object methods directly.
</para>
</section>
<section><title>dump</title>
<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. It will simply print: &quot;dump() deprecated.&quot; In
older versions of ooDialog, the <emphasis role="italic">dump</emphasis>() method would print out information tied to
the undocumented internal implementation of ooDialog. Since the internal implementation has changed, this information
no longer exists.
</para>

<para>
This method is <xref linkend="apxDeprecated"/>. Replace this method with the
<xref linkend="mthEnableControl"/> method.
</para>

<indexterm><primary>Deprecated</primary><secondary>external functions</secondary></indexterm>
<para>
<emphasis role="bold">Do not directly use any of the ooDialog external functions.</emphasis>
</para>
<para>
The ooDialog documentation prior to ooDialog 4.0.0 documented ten external functions as <emphasis
role="italic">callable functions that can be used in your Object Rexx programs</emphasis>. It then
mentioned in passing that the Public <link linkend="sctPublicRoutines">Routines</link> were a more convenient way to use
these functions. It was noted that the external routines were registered automatically when the first dialog was
initialized, but if the programmer wanted to use the external routines when no dialog was created, he could register the
individual functions using <computeroutput>RxFuncAdd</computeroutput>.
</para>
<para>
The 3.2.0 documentation expounded on that a little and also mentioned that there were other external
functions, noting that it would be difficult for ooDialog programmers to use these other functions
unless they were experienced C programmers. In hindsight that was a mistake. Each of the external
functions has a matching public routine. No mention of the external functions should have been made.
Instead, only the public routines should have been documented.
</para>
<para>
The reason for this is simple, the external functions have been removed. Prior to 4.0.0, ooDialog was
implemented using the original external native API. This API was useful, but somewhat limiting.
Particularly when used with the object-oriented paradigm. ooRexx 4.0.0 introduces a new native API
that is much more robust and flexible. Using this new API makes writing external packages like ooDialog
much easier.
</para>
<para>
ooDialog has been completely converted to use this new API. <emphasis role="italic"><emphasis
role="bold">All</emphasis> of the external functions have been removed.</emphasis> If your programs directly uses any
of the <emphasis role="bold">undocumented</emphasis> external functions, they will not work with the 4.2.0 release of
ooDialog.
</para>
<para>
The documented external functions will be available as <emphasis role="bold">deprecated</emphasis>
functions, with the possibility of their removal in the future. However, they will simply map to the
corresponding public routine. The programmer can remove this extra level of indirection by calling the
public routine directly. It would be nice if ooDialog did not have to drag along this baggage forever
into the future.
</para>
<para>
It is no longer necessary to use RxFuncAdd(). Doing so is a nop. Likewise, registering InstMMFuncs()
and calling it does nothing. The ooDialog programmer should remove any references to RxFuncAdd (when
used to register any ooDialog external function,) and InstMMFuncs in their code as the opportunity
arises.

The implementation of this function is poor. It uses 100% of the CPU while waiting. It should be possible to provide
