Re: How to create spreadsheet-like data entry form

Does anyone have a recommendation between the two? I am also looking for something like this, and with Gridstack half off for the next few days I am very tempted to get on or the other.

Re: Windows RevMail broken still?

Yep - that's it. It looks like the limitation on size applies not only to the body of the message, but also to the TO: list (which makes sense, since it's sending a string of text to Outlook). Since I am trying to automatically send a report to a list of around 40 people I am running into the size l...

Windows RevMail broken still?

Is the revMail command still not working correctly in Windows with Revolution 4.0? I can seem to make Outlook create nearly empty emails, but trying to populate a number of addresses in the "TO:", or create a a body of any length nothing happens at all. Looking throught he mailing list this problem ...

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

Thanks - I will take a look at that RFC and fool around with the windows tool that you mentioned and see what I can puzzle out.

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

I have finally given up and resorted to just screen-scraping from our intranet's people directory pages. Obviously this is not ideal, but it's getting me what I need for today. If anyone has any ideas about how I might go about creating an actual LDAP client though I would love to hear them!

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

I was able to get a look at the logs for my corporate ldap server and it shows the connection opening and closing, but no record of any url being recived. Like I said, I am missing something very basic here. Any help appreciated. This is the log entry for the connection - [17/Jun/2010:10:28:03 -0500...

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

Still not having any luck with this. I have put together a stack you can look at to see what I am doing. It's at http://www.edgore.com/rev/LDAPtest.zip I have modified it so it tries to look up someone in the umich.edu public LDAP directory, so this should work for anyone, anywhere, without modifica...

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

So, I am slowly learning more as I try to figure this out... LDAP port 389 is described as a plain text port. This means, I assume, that I don't have to do any binary encoding. URL encoding is only used when for reserved characters when they are being used outside of their special role. Since "=" ",...

Re: Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

It looks like I made a couple of mistakes when I retranscribed this for the board. I have edited the post above and it now matches what I am using, except for the x'ed out domain info.

Some Very Basic Questions about urls and Sockets

I am still working through how to best query LDAP in this little application I am trying to write, It looks like using LDAP URLS, which my server supports, is the easiest way to do it - I don't have to write a full ldap client that way. What I am not sure about is how, exactly, I should be sending t...

Re: Examples of protocol RFCs implemented in Rev?

So, after doing some research I have discovered that the server I am dealing with supports LDAP URL, which I think may make this easier. LDAP URL works by sending a url witht he LDA query info to the server (at port 389) and the server is supposed to respond by by serving up an html page with the qu...

Examples of protocol RFCs implemented in Rev?

I am currentky trying to figure out how to take the LDAP RFC and implement the LDAP protocol for doing simple queries as part of a Revolution application. Turns out, reading RFCs is hard...and I have to learn the grammer that they use for specifying message formats...and figure out the encoding sche...

Re: How does REV IDE connect to online features?

Figured it out. They changd the proxy port from what I had originally set up, and I never knew, since my browser was set up to use an automatic configuration script. Updating the port in the Rev proxy setting has fixed everything.

Thanks!

Re: How does REV IDE connect to online features?

This give me a couple of ideas at least. I rand some tests yesterday using openScokets and it t=does appear that rev is using port 80, and is pointed to the runrev site, so that cannot be the problem. I will try the other suggestions.

Thanks!

How does REV IDE connect to online features?

In my work environment we have the internet somewhat blocked off - most ports closed by default, some websites blocked, etc. I think this is causing me problems with being able to access any of the online components in the IDE - the user notes in the dictionary, Revolution Online, even the "Check Fo...
