Progress Class, Part I

Progress Class, Part II

Build 1.2.2406

Version 1.2.2441.196 - Monday, November 02, 2015

Updates, features:

  1. July 5, 2015 Added MatchControlSize method to core class.
  2. September 12, 2015 Added pDel parameter to StringToLines, allowing passing a delimiter to split the string to lines by.
  3. September 12, 2015 Added pQuoteChar parameter to ParseCSVLine, allowing setting the quote char for strings.
  4. September 12, 2015 Added pDel parameter to FileToLines, allowing it to parse files with End-Of-Line delimiters other than CR, LF and CR+LF.
  5. September 12, 2015 Added pDel parameter to WriteQToFile, allowing setting the End-Of-Line delimiters when writing the Lines queue to file. By default CR+LF (<13,10>) is used.
  6. October 20, 2015 Added LinesToFile method to StringClass. It's a wrapper for WriteQToFile.
  7. October 20, 2025 Added StringToFile method to StringClass. It's a wrapper for WriteStringToFile.
  8. October 26, 2015 Added SkipEOLOnLastLine property to StringClass. When using WriteQToFile or LinesToFile it will create an empty line because it added EOL at the end of the last line. If SkipEOLOnLastLine is set to True, then it does not add the EOL at the end of the last line. Original behaviour (adding an empty line) is left intact so it does not break code.
  9. October 28, 2015 Added GetStringBetween method to StringClass. It extracts a string from another string by searching for a beginning and end string, optionally starting at given positions. Can be specified if it's case sensitive or not.
  10. October 29, 2015 Added SetStringBetween method to StringClass. It inserts a string from another string in the same way as GetStringBetween does.

Fixes:

  1. July 4, 2015 Added ADJUST attribute to all #SHEET statements in the templates to make sure they adjust (more) properly when fonts in the IDE are changed.
  2. August 14, 2015 StringToLines would fail if the string contained no end-of-line characters. Fixed.
  3. September 12, 2015 End-Of-Line variable in LinesToString was declared as CSTRING(4) instead of CSTRING(5). Fixed.
  4. October 20, 2015 Preserve Variables template did not generate the correct code if conditions were used. Fixed.

Version 1.2.2433.168 - Monday, June 29, 2015

Updates, features:

  1. June 22, 2015: Added pDelimterStartsLine parameter to SplitString. Allows it to split lines based on the start characters of a line, not end characters.
  2. June 29, 2015: Added ParseCSVLine method to parse a line with CSV data. Also added FreeCSVFields (protected) method.

Fixes:

  1. March 10, 2015: The template could cause classes to export an older version which could cause "xxx is unresolved for export" errors when compiling exporting dlls. Fixed.
  2. May 24, 2015: Fixed a potential memory leak in the AddIntoParenthesis method.
  3. June 27, 2015: Image Class ResizeImage method did not work correctly on reports. Fixed.
  4. June 27, 2015: Image Class ResizeImage did not correctly size images when it was called multiple times for the same image control. Fixed.

Version 1.2.2430 - February 24, 2015

Updates, features:

  1. August 21, 2014: Added two new template files, ITUtilExt.tpw and ITUtilUtil.tpw. The first one will be used for additional Extension templates, the second for Utility templates.
  2. December 3, 2014: Added FormatDate and FormatTime to DateClass. Those take a format string, such as 'mm-dd-yyyy' and translate the passed date into the format passed in. This makes the formatting of dates much more flexible than the picture formats in Clarion.
  3. December 4, 2014: Added pCaseSensitive=0 to CountFinds, FindReplace and SearchReplace. Previously those were case insensitve, but can now handle case sensitive searches.
  4. December 16, 2014: Added Lesser, Greater to the Core Class and ColorToRGB and GetColorBrightness to the Utilities Class.

Fixes:

  1. July 16, 2014: RemoveHTML did not remove white spaces at beginning or end of the resulting string. Fixed.
  2. July 16, 2014: RemoveHTML did not remove   Fixed.
  3. July 21, 2014: Preserve Variable Data template could fail to generate an END statement into ThisWindow.Kill in some circumstances. Fixed.
  4. October 1, 2014: Demo app for the new IDE (UtilDemoC7.app) was missing a file, UtilDemo.Version in the install. Fixed.
  5. December 19, 2014: FileErrorCode() can return alphanumeric values since it returns a string. ErrorMsg always interpreted it as a LONG so results could be incorrect. Fixed.

Version 1.2.2427 - July 6, 2014

Updates, features:

  1. March 29, 2014: Added EnumRegistryValues method to the Registry Class.
  2. April 8, 2014: Added checks to allow condition to apply on reading and/or writing in the Preserve Variable Data template.
  3. April 8, 2014: Added embeds before and after reading and writing each variable in the Preserve Variable Data template.

Fixes:

  1. January 30, 2014: Installer did not allow selecting the Clarion root install folder. Fixed.

  3. February 24, 2014: The pAppend parameter on WriteStringToFile was not implemented. Fixed.
  4. March 5, 2014: Example code for StringToWords did not show access to the Word queue. Fixed
  5. March 30, 2014: CompileSBProject method uses Exists() without ShortPath(). This can cause problems in certain situations reporting that a file/folder does not exist when it does. Fixed.
  6. June 16, 2014: Int64 variable declared in methods in the Registry Class caused "Duplicate label" error. Fixed.

Version 1.2.2423 - January 27, 2014

Updates, features:

  1. September 23, 2013: Added two parameters to CopyFiles to allow further refining of the SHFileOperation attributes.

  3. January 27, 2014: Updated all template descriptions so they are prefixed with "Icetips Utilities: " to make it easier to find them!
  4. January 27, 2014 : Installer updated to work with Clarion 9.1

Fixes:

  1. August 5, 2013: Icetips SQL Queue Process template did not use external names for the queue fields. Fixed.
  2. October 25, 2013: Modified the "Preserver Variable Values" template code. The save was put in the wrong place in ThisWindow.Kill. Fixed.
  3. December 2, 2013: SplitString would fail for the last item in the string if it was just one character. Example "123;234;345" would work fine, where as "123;234;3" would correctly parse the first two elements, but the last one would be empty. Fixed.
  4. December 12, 2013: Increased number of possible enumerated processes in EnumProcesses from 1024 to 10240.

Version 1.2.2415 - May 14, 2013

Updates, features:

  1. September 20, 2012: Added GetBit, SetBit and GetBitString to the Core Class. This comes in very handy when using bitmap values!
  2. September 21, 2012: Added ReadFileToQ method to the String Class. It just calls FileToLines, but better matches naming convention with WriteQToFile.
  3. September 21, 2012: Added GetLastInputTime and GetIdleTime to the Windows Class. Documentation has also been added.
  4. September 22, 2012: Added option to Window Wizard to create tabs on the window. You can enter the text for each tab and create as many tabs as you want.
  5. April 15, 2013: Added "Icetips Preserve Variable Data" procedure extension template.
  6. May 14, 2013: Installer is now compatible with Clarion 9.

Fixes:

  1. September 21, 2012: #508: Verified bug in Clarion 8 that prevents .TXD files from being exported using #EXPORT(%DictionaryFile) which is used in the Icetips Export App and Dct global extension template. PTSS #39582: http://problemtracker.softvelocity.com/clarion8/UpdtCustBugsview.php?ID1=39582
  2. September 21, 2012: #332: Export Class no longer requires the ASCII driver.
  3. September 21, 2012: #332: Record Class no longer requires the ASCII driver. There is no longer any dependency on the ASCII file driver in the Utilities as it has been replaced with calls to methods in the String Class.
  4. September 21, 2012: #523: Page of Pages template erroneously called %ITPisCpcsReportTemplate group instead of %ITUisCpcsReportTemplate. Fixed.
  5. September 22, 2012: Help was not implemented in the Window Wizard. Fixed.
  6. October 19, 2012: Under some circumstances FileString was not disposed in the String class causing memory leak. Fixed
  7. January 19, 2013: Zendesk support ticket #15: StringToWords ignored words made up of digits only. Added parameter to StringToWords to indicate if digits should count as words. Fixed.
  8. February 25, 2013: Added support for Setup Builder 8 to the SetupBuilderClass.

Version 1.2.2408 - July 5, 2012

Updates, features:

  1. June 13, 2012: Added global template to handle Legacy applications. Use the "Icetips Utilities Classes Global - LEGACY ONLY" Global template instead of the "Icetips Utilities Classes Global - ABC ONLY" in the applications where you use the Icetips Utilities Classes. This template also needs to be added to the root/exporting dll app.
  2. June 22, 2012: Added QueueResorted virtual method to the AddHeaderSortToQueue template. This can only be implemented by modifying the ListQueue property in the brwext.inc file from being PRIVATE to PROTECTED. QueueResorted method is called after the queue is resorted, but a bug in the brwext.clw causes it to be called _before_ the queue is sorted so it's always one sort behind! The overridden method sorts the queue so after the parent call the queue is sorted correctly before your code executes.
  3. June 22, 2012: Modified installer to change the ListQueue property from PRIVATE to PROTECTED.
  4. June 22, 2012: Completed documentation for List procedures with Windows without HLP attribute utility template.
  5. June 22, 2012: Added TreatEmptyLastItemAsLine property to the StringClass. This allows SplitString to determine how to handle empty items at the end of the item array.
  6. June 23, 2012: Added 5 new embed points to the Limit Program Instance template to make it more flexible.
  7. June 23, 2012: Completed documentation for Limit Program Instance template.
  8. June 23, 2012: Completed documentation for all Utilities templates.
  9. June 25, 2012: Added a check to SetPageOfText method in Page of Pages class to prevent it from potentially replace the page-of token if it is found more than once in the metafile, indicating that the file contained the particular byte array in its internal code. This would prevent any problems due to replacing some of the meta file code from ever happening.
  10. June 26, 2012: Finished documentation for Page of Pages Class.
  11. June 27, 2012: Finished documentation of Write Version info to INI file template.
  12. June 27, 2012: Finished documentation of Add Header Sort to Queue template.
  13. June 27, 2012: Finished documentation of Bind/Unbind local variables template.
  14. June 27, 2012: Finished documentation of Icetips Browse Checkbox update template.

  18. July 2, 2012: Finished documentation of all Utility templates.

Fixes:

  1. June 9, 2012: ShowProgress method in ProgressClass would apply "vista fix" to progress step on all operating system versions. It could cause back jumping in the progressbar on XP under some circumstances. Now only applied if running under Vista or newer operating systems. Fixed.
  2. June 22, 2012: SplitString could fail with last item in the item array if it contained only one character. Fixed.
  3. June 25, 2012: FindInString method in the String Class was not documented. Fixed.
  4. June 26, 2012: Limit Program Instance template didn't preserve variable setting for entries, i.e. if "!VarName" was used as "Unique Program String" it would be changed to "VarName". Same with the "Window caption string", "Message Caption" and "Message Text" entries. Fixed.
  5. June 26, 2012: Some methods were missing from the Overview and Methods list in the String Class chapter. Fixed.
  6. June 27, 2012: GetThemedPanelFEQ did not return the correct FEQ. Fixed.
  7. June 29, 2012: ThemeAPanel did not work in Clarion 8. Fixed.
  8. June 29, 2012: ThemeAPanel required XPTheme to be included for Clarion 8. Fixed.
  9. June 29. 2012: Fixes to ThemeAPanel for Clarion 8 did not work in Clarion 6. Fixed.

  9. October 22, 2011: Added Export Windows without Help ID utility template.
  10. November 12, 2011: Modified return value from the ITRun method so that if the called process returns no exit code, the method returns 0 instead of the return value from WaitForSingleObject. The reason for this change is that it is possible that if the called process returns nothing and WaitForSingleObject returns a value that the calling code is expecting, the results are wrong.
  11. January 14, 2012: Finished documentation for Progress Class.
  12. May 3, 2012: Added FindReplace, AllocateSearchString and CountFinds methods to Core class. FindReplace is an adidtional search and replace method that returns the replaced string unlike SearchReplace method which needs the string to be passed in as a variable.

Fixes:

  1. October 6, 2011: GetMonthName returned space padded month name. Fixed.
  2. November 6, 2011: GetSBExecutable in Setup Builder Class would return true if it didn't find the exe. Fixed.
  3. November 11, 2011: GetValueType in Registry Class did not return the value data type for the registry entry. Fixed.
  4. November 11, 2011: GetRegEx in Registry Class did not handle value data type correctly. Fixed.
  5. January 23, 2012: EnumRegistrySubKeys did not implement the pIs64Bit parameter to enforce default, 32 or 64 bit keys. Fixed
  6. April 25, 2012: Thread limiter Global class instance was not exported correctly in multi-dll applications. Fixed.
  7. May 4, 2012: The ITUtility.hlp file was not included in the install. Fixed.
  8. May 4, 2012: The ITUtility.hlp was not activated in the main template file - ITUtility.tpl - so it did not open when using the "Help" button in the Clarion IDE! Fixed.

Version 1.1.2397 - May 4, 2011

Updates, features:

  1. May 4, 2011: Install built for Clarion 8.0.

Fixes:

  1. January 5, 2011: SplitString could cause "Index Out of Range" in some cases if the last line was empty. Fixed.
  2. January 12, 2011: FileToString method in String Class did not have the PROC attribute. Fixed.
  3. February 23, 2011: ErrorMsg did not return FileError() but Error() if it was called with (False, True) i.e. when it should only return FileErrorCode() and FileError(). Fixed.

Version 1.1.2394 - December 21, 2010

Fixes:

  1. December 10, 2010: EnumRegistrySubKeys would fail under windows 2008 server.

  4. Key events: IT_KEYEVENTF_KEYDOWN IT_KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY IT_KEYEVENTF_KEYUP

  5. September 10, 2010: ID field to the ChildWindowQ queue structure, used by the Windows Class. This is being retrieved in the EnumChildWindowProc and EnumTopWindowProc with IT_GetWindowLong(hwnd,IT_GWL_ID). This makes it possible to 100% identify a control and the ID is persistent.
  6. November 21, 2010: Documentation done for File Select Class.
  7. November 30, 2010: Documentation done for Files Class.
  8. November 30, 2010: Added keywords to the Network Class.
  9. November 30, 2010: Added ConvertToUNC and GetUNCFileNames to Network Class. Those methods simply call GetLocalNetworkFileName, but are easier to remember!
  10. November 30, 2010: Added documentation for IT_NETRESOURCEs and IT_NetworkShares data types. HideDebugView property and ConvertToUNC, EnumNetworkPrinters, GetLocalNetworkFileName, GetUNCFileName, IsLocalShare, IsUNC and ShowLocalShares methods in the Network Class.

  4. LongToHex moved from UtilityClass to CoreClass
  5. Added URLEncode method.

  11. GetFileSize method added to the CoreClass. The method supports > 2GB file sizes.
  12. Added ITFileQueueLS queue type which uses a DECIMAL(15,0) for the file size. This structure is NOT compatible with DIRECTORY, but can be used to store similar information with large file sizes. See GetFileSize.
  13. Added pLocation parameter to GetLastAPIError in CoreClass. This allows passing a location string that is shown in the output text.
  14. Added GetWeekNumber method to DateClass that uses ISO8601 to calculate the current week number.

  2. AssociateProgram method in Shell class was not working correctly. Fixed.
  3. GetAssociatedProg could fail if extension was more than 4 characters long including the dot prefix. Fixed.
  4. AddLine method had a potential memory abuse problem that would cause a GPF and out of memory errors when building very large queues. Fixed.
  5. SearchReplace could fail to replace if the replace string was shorter than the search for string. Fixed.
  6. GetSpecialFolder used 0{PROP:Handle} to get a window handle. However since this method can be called before any window has been opened it could cause a GPF. Changed to use the desktop window instead. Fixed.
  7. Standardized Window Code template didn't generate code correctly for the data and routine embeds (an extra couple of spaces was added to the start of the TXA code). Fixed.
  8. ReadDirectories method in the File Search Class counted "." and ".." files. Fixed.
  9. File Search Class used LONGs for files sizes and totalled file sizes. Changed to Decimal(15,0).
  10. ScanFiles method in the File Search Class did not return the correct number of files. Fixed.
  11. PathIsDir in CoreClass did not call the correct API. Fixed.
  12. Added PROC attribute to GetLastAPIErrorCode method.

  5. GetFilePart and RemoveBackSlash added to Core Class Demo.
  6. Added "pParameters" parameter to ITRunFile to allow passing of parameters to it.
  7. Added SetEnvVar method to Shell Class to allow setting environment variables - needs testing.
  8. Added ExpandEnvString method to Shell Class to allow expanding environment variables.
  9. Added demo of ExpandEnvString to both expand a variable in a string and also us ITRun with %SystemRoot%\System32\taskmgr.exe which runs the task manager.
  10. Added code template to call the GetSpecialFolder method of the Shell Class.

Fixes:

  1. In some circumstances the SplitString method of the string class could cause a GPF because the end of the datastream was miscalculated as negative. Fixed.
  2. ReadFileToString method in the string class was opening the file to read in read+write mode. Changed to read mode only.
  3. The OL member of the Lines queue was declared as Cstring(1025) and thus restricted to 1K of data. It is now dynamic.
  4. NOTE: IF you have worked with the Lines queue manually where you have used Free(ITS.Lines) you now need to call the FreeLines method instead of Free(ITS.Lines) or the equivalent or you risk memory leaks. Fixed.
