Tablet
One of my clients running a programme of mine based on Paradox is asking for it to be installed on a Tablet.  I have no experience with this hardware, so is this possible? Many Thanks,

I have one client that has paradox installed and running on a win tablet running win 8 pro.  There are a couple of virtual machines in the works to run windows native applications on IOS and Android.  Another option would be to connect to your desktop pc using one of the RDP applications available for android or IOS.

Voice activated Paradox
The biggest hurdle for users of data based programes is finding the time to do the inputting.  Has there been any advances in voice activation for Paradox. Is this feature built into a program such as PDX or is it an add on ?

I can't give you the specific code but you can build a command line using PKZip.  You would run PKZip against a directory containing your files, saving the result to a specific file name and then send that file. On the other end, use PKUnzip to extract it.

Empty a table and add a table
Would anybody be willing share code for  2 pushbuttons to :-  1) Empty a table 2) Add the contents of one table to another (append and update) Thanks, Paul

Not after. During. The tblVar.empty() method requires an exclusive lock on the table. If Paradox cannot place this lock, the empty() fails. The QBE method I suggested is for when empty() doesn't work, because the table is on a form in edit mode or otherwise in use. The empty() method is much faster when you can use it. -Al.

Im just Emptying a table, and Adding records of one table to another table in PDXRuntime, do you suspect the BDE will lock the tables afterwards ?

Suppressing a field
Using a group band, I have several records resulting. I wish to show only a field in the first record, and suppress the same field in the following 3 or 4 records - because they are identical and surplus to requirements. How do I do this ? Thanks, Paul

Runtime9
Has anyone experienced trouble with Navigation bars giving trouble in Runtime9 ? I have a Calendar by Leon Chalnick which works fine on Paradox9 but plays up on PDXRT. I'm hoping that the Word Perfect SP4 will sort the problem out, anyone like to comment on their experience ?, Cheers,, Paul

I have not had any trouble like that with runtime. When you say "Navigation Bars" do you mean the toolbars? Also, are you still having this issue?

Simple Inventory
I have a simple Inventory system with three tables, Product.db, Purchases.db and used. the "taking in" of stock is done with a PushButton with the following and the "Stock out" is converse :-, var, tc tCursor, endvar, , if PurchaseIn = "" then msgStop("No Data","You didn't put a number in the field!") return endif, if ProductName = "" then msgStop("No Data","You didn't pick a product!") return endif, , tc.open("Prod.db"), tc.edit(), if not tc.locate("ProductName",ProductName.value), then msgStop("Error","Product not found"), tc.endEdit(), tc.close(), return, endif, , tc.Amount = (tc.Amount+PurchaseIn), tc.postRecord(), tc.endEdit(), tc.close(), Trouble is you have to toggle the Navigation bar forward and back a record before the code works. Can anybody solve this one?, Cheers,, Paul

Also, you should really make the postrecord() a test for postrecord(). As well, unlockrecord(). if not postrecord()... if not unlockrecord()...

.rdl Scripts
In 9 Runtime when I try to run the report I am getting a message saying "ObjecPal not able to be executed on this version - go back to the source" or some such.. Has anybody else had that problem?

In some cases, I have seen a calculated field on a report cause something like this.  This was generally caused when the data table was modified resulting in the calculation becomming invalid.  Usually the calculated field will popup in an edit window and you can modify it or delete the calculation.

Paradox to Where?
Over the years I have met some really neat people who have used Paradox. Could I ask them what they moved onto and why?

I moved onto Delphi for Windows applications and ASP for websites. After that, I moved onto Visual Studio.Net.
