Direct URL 3.3 #directurl #ssb #kioskbrowser #webbrowser #internet #xojo #website #browser

 Permalink
A new version of Direct URL, my Site Specific Browser (SSB), is now available.

3.3
(01-january-2017)

Application Name in MacOS X
In MacOS X the application name, when running, was always 'Direct URL', regardless of the name of the website you gave the copy.
This has now been fixed. For Xojo coders who want to this too, see here for the solution: https://forum.xojo.com/37244-rename-app-on-open/

I have left the 'About' and 'Quit' menu-items untouched, so these still show 'About Direct URL' and 'Quit Direct URL'.

Direct URL 3.2

 Permalink
A new version of Direct URL, my Site Specific Browser (SSB), is now available.

3.2
(20-december-2016)

Linux version discontinued
The Linux version is discontinued. Too much hassle to keep it up-to-date.

New version-detection
- As of v3.2, the app will check for a new new version and pop-up a notification dialog with a link.

Window size
- The last known window-size will now be remembered. At startup, the window will always begin at top 45, left 1 and resize itself according to the saved width and height.

Webkit
- The app now uses webkit, if present.

Loading URL in MS-Windows
- There was a problem with loading an URL under MS-Windows. This has been fixed.

Preferences-file
- Instead of having one preferences file in use by all copies of Direct URL, each copy now gets its own preferences file, named like this: durl-[app name].ini
- If you have used the 'Preferences…', this change breaks it. You have to specify any special URLs and/or passwords again.

ICSviewer 2.7

 Permalink
icsviewer
The ical/ics calendar file viewer ICS Viewer is updated to version 2.7.

From / To dates selection fixed.
From / To dates would take the chosen date, but with the current time as as start or endpoint.
For example: 01-01-2016 09:10:34 to 13-12-2016 09:10:34
This would cause events on 01 jan 2016 earlier than 09:10 and events on 13 dec 2016 later then 09:10 not to show up.
From / To dates now use 00:00:00 as From time and 23:59:59 as To-time.

About-window at start
The About-window will not show itself automatically anymore when opening the app.
The about window would pop-up each time you start the application until you donated; only then it would not pop-up anymore.
Since this is a bit annoying, I moved the Paypal-button to the main window. When you donate, this button wil disappear.

New version-detection
As of v2.7, the app will check for a new new version and pop-up a notification dialog with a link.

E$DBL subroutine library handleidingen

 Permalink
Eindelijk na jaren is ook mijn E$LIB subroutine bibliotheek voor Synergy/DBL (kort na de overname van DIBOL ook wel Synergex/Language genoemd) online. De routines stammen uit 2000 en zijn terminal-gebaseerd en niet geschikt voor het maken van web-applicaties.

Met mijn ex-bedrijf EARTH Software Development (nu SDS82) heb ik deze routines veelvuldig ingezet bij Briscon Software en Wielens Aandrijftechniek.

A multi-line SUMMARY, which I did know could exist, is now handled correctly.

Thanks to Phil Birch for pointing this out.

DTEND with All-Day Events is now handled correctly: DTEND minus 1 day is actually the last day of the All-Day Event.

Thanks to Kevin Edwards for pointing this out.

A crash when no DTEND entry was present has been repaired. This seems to be possible with Google Calendar events.

Version 2 of ICS Viewer was released today. Someone reported a crash, which had to do with the order of VEVENT entries. This, among other things, has been fixed. Enjoy!

At the Lasso Developer Conference 2010

 Permalink


The Euro Lasso Developer Conference 2010 was held in Berlin on 30 and 31 of october 2010 @ GLS Campus Berlin. Organized by ANU Internet Services, this was a great idea and happening. The brand new Lasso 9 was discussed very much; various demos and presentations of code and sites built with Lasso 9. LassoSoft announced they found an investor and were getting back on track! Only good news - of course!
It was nice to meet fellow developers who I normally only have contact with by reading and posting to mailing lists.
Thanks to Chris Wik from ANU for his spontaneous idea and rapid put-together of a well done DevCon!

Using FTP in Lasso

 Permalink
I created a page about the various ways to use the FTP protocol with Lasso, from and to various systems. Find it here. I have been trying to get it work the last few days and now that it does, I wanted to share what you can do. Of course there are probably installations where it all works out-of-the-box, but this time not with me.

Bootcamp partition

 Permalink
I use Parallels Desktop for Mac (have used VMWare Fusion, but found it really slow) but I find it too slow to work with on a daily basis. Therefore I thought I'd switch to a Bootcamp partition and boot the Mac directly into Windows. That way it would a) be faster and b) at last I could use my cheap Windows USB film scanner and digital Blocknote, which Parallels was never able to recognize. So said, so done. But yesterday two things happened :
  • My MacbookPro wouldn't boot off the Windows partition anymore - it simply remained stuck in the startup process. I don't know why... it's just disappointing after so many hours.
  • In my email I saw an announcement of Parallels 5.
I started reading about Parallels 5 and it said that at last it would recognize all USB hardware, was Snow Leopard ready and could boot off a Bootcamp partition. A few seconds later I had my upgrade serial numbers and was installing P5 over P4.

After installation I started my normal Windows XP virtual machine and let P5 upgrade it. Then I quitted the machine and backed up the 40 Gb file to my Drobo. Then I clicked the big + to add a new virtual machine and chose 'Bootcamp' and hoped that it would pick it up. It did! After a while P5 was ready to start and so I did. P5 created a 2Gb virtual disk - I don't know why and booted the Bootcamp Windows XP without any troubles. And you know what? It runs almost 10x faster off the Bootcamp partition as with its normal virtual disk structure. With P4 and the virtual disk, MS-Excel 2003 took ages to start up. But now, it's like a flash - as if I've booted directly into Windows. And... it recognized indeed my cheap Prolectrix film scanner and my cheap Medion digital blocknote. Great, really great! Of course I immediately backup up the 2Gb virtual disk and the bootcamp partition to my Drobo. You can backup and restore a Bootcamp partition with Winclone.

LDC09-2009-10-5-22-17

From october 1 thru 4, the Lasso Developer Conference 2009 was held in Amsterdam. For me, this was the first time because a) it was in Amsterdam and b) Lasso 9 would be introduced and c) at last I would meet quite a few fellow Lasso-ers in real life.
There were some round-tables and workshops presented by Lasso-ers themselves, where some interesting topics were discussed and great solutions to returning questions were offered.
LassoSoft picked a real cool location: Spaces at the Herengracht. You can see some photo's of it here.

It was great. Thanks Lassosoft and everyone for this opportunity!
