Release Notes ooDialog 4.2.3 ============================ The ooDialog 4.2.3 release is a routine update, providing some incremental improvements and a few bug fixes. ooDialog 4.2.3 can be installed to any ooRexx installation, 4.1.0 or later. Beginning with the release of ooDialog 4.2.0, the installation of ooDialog has been decoupled from the interpreter. ooDialog 4.2.3 installs over the top of any ooRexx installation. It replaces the version of ooDialog in the ooRexx installation with ooDialog 4.2.3. This type of ooDialog installation is called an "independent" ooDialog installation to indicate the ooDialog installation is independent of an ooRexx installation and, to a degree, the version of ooRexx installed. ooDialog 4.2.3 is distributed with ooRexx 4.2.0. Indpendent Installation ======================================================================== The independent installation package is simple, done through a typical Windows installer. Pick the installation package that matches the bitness of the ooRexx installation. I.e., a 32-bit package for a 32-bit ooRexx and a 64-bit package for a 64-bit ooRexx. The installer will detect the installed ooRexx, location and version. If the ooRexx version is less than 4.1.0, or if there is no installed ooRexx, the installer will abort with a message explaining the problem. Otherwise the installer will replace the current ooDialog with ooDialog 4.2.3. Note that the actions of the installer are dependent on the version of ooRexx, not the version of the installed ooDialog. For instance, if the installed ooDialog is version 4.3.0, but for some reason the user is not happy with that version, running the ooDialog 4.2.3 installer will replace the 4.3.0 version with the 4.2.3 version. At the time of the installation, *all* ooDialog programs must be halted and the ooDialog PDFs must be closed if they happen to be opened. Changes in ooDialog 4.2.3 since the release of ooDialog 4.2.2 ======================================================================== Bug Fixes in ooDialog: ---------------------- * #1175 Incorrect super class initialization can bypass DynamicDialog init * #1176 ooDialog - the SingleSelection class has the potential of not executing * #1198 ooDialog installer aborts if oodialog.pdf does not exist Note: bug #1198 applies to the independent ooDialog installer only. It is not relevant when installing ooRexx 4.2.0 * #1204 When parsing a .rc file ooDialog does not recognize some control statements DocumentationBug Fixes in ooDialog: ---------------------------------- * #201 getTextAlign(), getTextExtent(), setTextAlign() not documented * #202 ooDialog Reference 4.2.3 - Text errors in Section 8.1 "Method Table" Feature Requests in ooDialog: ----------------------------- * #508 ooDialog - index for tree-view state images * #537 Add FIle Open Dialog to allow more options than available with the FileNameDialog * #540 Add a stand alone ooDialog program launcher * #549 The setColor() method does not work well with comboboxes * #554 Enhance stand alone ooDialog installer to use components * #555 .OpenFileDialog set the 'CANCEL' button label * #556 Would like access to the Win32 UpdateWindow() API * #559 ooDialog - add a convenience function to help locate resource files Miscellaneous Fixes: -------------------- * Fixed a problem detecting some controls in the .rc files produced by some resource editors. Combo box, edit, list box, and scroll bar. New Functionality in ooDialog: ------------------------------ The stand alone ooDialog installer now allows the user to choose to skip the installation of the documentation and / or the example programs. This matches the ooRexx installation where the documentation and sample programs do not have to be installed. An ooDialog executable, ooDialog.exe, has been added to the distribution. The executable will run ooDialog programs in a manner similare to rexxhide, provides command line information on the version of ooDialog installed, and can be used to set up file types and associations for ooDialog programs. New dialog classes: ------------------- CommonItemDialog class OpenFileDialog class SaveFileDialog class New utility classes: -------------------- CommonDialogCustomizations class ComConstants class ShellItemFilter class CommonDialogEvents class New Methods: ------------ In the Application class: requiredOS() Checks that the current operating system is at least the minmum specified. In the WindowBase class: updateWindow() Causes an immediate repaint of an invalid region in the window. Does nothing if there is no invalid region. In the ComboBox class: removeFullColor() Restores the color of the combo box to its default color if the setFullColor() method has previousl been invoked. setFullColor() Sets the color of a combo box for all parts of the combo box. In the DlgUtil class: getGUID() Generates a GUID and returns it in the converntional string format. In the TreeView class: getStateImage() Retrieves the state image index in the image list for the specified item. setStateImage() Assigns the state image index in the image list for the specified item. Enhanced Methods: ----------------- In the TreeView class: getImageList() Enhanced to take a keyword for the type of image list in addition to the raw number. setImageList() Enhanced to take a keyword for the type of image list in addition to the raw number. New Attributes: -------------- In the Application class: srcDir Returns the directory name the initial Rexx program was started in. New Public Routines: -------------------- locate() Returns the complete directory name of the Rexx source code file that is executing and sets the .application srcDir attribute to that value. New samples: ------------ * oodialog\controls\ComboBox\comboBoxTypes.rex Demonstrates what the 3 types of combo boxes look like. Shows how to use the removeFullColor() and setFullColor() methods of the ComboBox class. * oodialog\controls\ListBox\incrementalSearch.rex Shows how to implement an incremental search feature for the items in a list box and over-ride the list box control's internal incremental search. * oodialog\examples\genGUID.rex An example showing how to use the .DlgUtil's genGUID() method. Also provides a simple application that can be used to generate GUIDs for any use. * oodialog\examples\openSaveFileDemo.rex An example showing a number of different uses of both the Open File Dialog and the Save File Dialog. Demonstrates the most common usage patterns. * oodialog\examples\saveFileWithFilter.rex An example showing how to use the Common Item Dialog in file save mode. This example shows 2 things. 1.) How to use a filter with the dialog. This is done with the .ShellItemFilter class. 2.) How to connect event notifications. This is done with the .CommonDialogEvents class. * oodialog\controls\ListView\subitem.editing\importList.rex An example showing how to embed contorls in a list view to allow in-place subitem editing. The example also demonstrates the ResizingAdmin and BrowseForFolder classes. Enhanced Samples: ----------------- All of the samples have been enhanced so the they can locate any needed resource files no matter which directory they are executed from. This allows them to run correctly if, for example, they are dragged and dropped on ooDialog.exe. Known Problems, "Gotchas," and Solutions with Independent Installations ======================================================================== * Problem: The ooRexx installer creates a log of the files it installs. When the uninstaller runs, the user can select to only uninstall files logged during installtion. An indpendent ooDialog installation may install some example programs, documentation files, and shortcuts not recorded in the log file. When ooRexx is uninstalled or upgraded, these files and shortcuts may not be deleted. Solution 1: Before uninstalling ooRexx, install the independent ooDialog that matches the ooRexx installation. I.e., if the ooRexx installation is any 4.0.x, or 4.1.x ooRexx version, install the ooDialog 4.1.0 indpendent installation. Then when ooRexx is uninstalled, all ooDialog files and shortcuts will be removed because the files and shortcuts exactly match what was installed during the ooRexx installation. Solution 2: After uninstalling ooRexx, manually delete any files in the old ooRexx installation directory. * Gotcha: The independent ooDialog installation deletes the entire ooDialog samples subdirectory tree. This will delete any personal files that may have been put there after ooRexx was installed. Solution 1: Do not put personal files in the %REXX_HOME%\samples\ooDialog subdirectory tree. Solution 2: Before executing the independent ooDialog installer, move or back up any personal files that may be in %REXX_HOME%\samples\ooDialog subdirectory tree.
