OpenEdge 11.7.4 support!

We are please to announce that we are not aware of any issues using the SmartComponent Library on OpenEdge 11.7.4. We hereby declare OpenEdge 11.7.4 fully supported for the SmartComponent Library as of the release of November 5th 2018.

OpenEdge 11.7.3 support!

The previously reported issues with the Progress Developer Studio Visual Designer (Visual Designer related OpenEdge 11.7.3 product alert!!!) has been resolved by Progress Software with Hotfix 007 of OpenEdge 11.7.3. We hereby announce full compatibility of the SmartComponent Library with OpenEdge 11.7.3.007. 

Besides the issue with the Visual Designer however, we have not been aware of any incompatibilities with OpenEdge 11.7.3. 

.NET Framework Version 4.7

.NET 4.7 is not supported with OpenEdge 11.x, see: Is .NET 4.7 certified and supported for OpenEdge? 

Progress has reported severy issues with OpenEdge GUI for .NET and .NET 4.7: GUI .Net Application crashes after .Net upgrade to 4.7

When using the .NET Framework 4.7, please make sure, you upgrade to OpenEdge 11.6.4 or OpenEdge 11.7.2 or later. Also, it may be required to recompile the application on a PC running .NET Framework 4.7 when applications are also executed on a PC with .NET Framework 4.7.

Release Notes

Following the release of the OpenEdge 11.7 Release we have completed our testing of the SmartComponent Library on this release of Progress and are proud to announce formal support for the SmartComponent Library on OpenEdge 11.7 with the 2017-04-24 release of the SmartComponent Library. Generally we recommend customers on OpenEdge 11 to upgrade to OpenEdge 11.7 quickly. Starting the 2017-07-14 release we are supporting OpenEdge 11.7 Service Pack 1 (11.7.1).

Starting the 2015-10-09 release the Business Entity Designer will feature a start page with links to most recent release note articles on this site.

With SCL-751 we have adopted native Enums for OpenEdge 11.6. To activate this feature customers must add a definition to products.i. SCL-751 provides details for this.

With SCL-1113 we have modified the templates for SmartWindowForms and SmartTabFolderPages generated from the Business Entity Designer. We have removed the initialization of the viewer controls SmartTableIOState property (value was set to "NoDataSource" within the InitializeComponent method). Customers using their own set of templates should adopt the same fix to their templates.

OpenEdge 11.7.3 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.3 we have experienced the following issues: 

  • [SCL-2216] - 11.7.3 Visual Designer disabling properties of ABL user controls

The issue has been resolved by Progress Software with hotfix 007 for OpenEdge 11.7.3.

OpenEdge 11.7.2 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.2 we have experienced two issues: 

  • [SCL-2007] - Correct support for WebHandler in CcsServiceManager
  • [SCL-2008] - Closing SmartWindowForm causes crash on OpenEdge 11.7.2

We consider it mandatory for customers using OpenEdge 11.7.2 to use at least the release #44166@2017-11-27 of the SmartComponent Library. 

Due to an fix for

  • [SCL-1924] - SmartViewerControl: copy mechanism cannot cope with clob datatype

from Progress Software for in OpenEdge 11.7.2.001 we further recommend all customers to apply this hotfix as well. 

New Versions of Proparse .NET Assemblies (30 December 2018)

We have updated proparse with further enhancements in this release (see https://github.com/consultingwerk/proparse/releases/tag/4.0.1.1177). Please download the .NET Assemblies ZIP file from our ESD and replace the proparse.net.dll in your environment with the latest one. The new assembly reference is:

<assembly name="proparse.net, Version=4.0.1.1177, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cda1b098b1034b24"/>

As proparse is used by our Business Entity Generator, this new version of the proparse.net Assembly is also relevant for customers not doing GUI for .NET development and require support for parsing new ABL language constructs.

This version of proparse provides additional debug information when errors are thrown from proparse.net.dll.

New Version of the Consultingwerk.SmartComponents Assemly (09 January 2019)

To support the new SmartFilterControl and the "Filter" link between the SmartFilterControl/SmartDynamciFilterControl and a SmartBusinessEntityAdapter or SmartDatasetChildAdapter we have updated the Consultingwerk.SmartComponents.dll. The new Assembly reference is:

<assembly name="Consultingwerk.SmartComponents, Version=2.2.0.49856, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=10603cb31df311b3"/>

Customers need to update this Assembly in order to compile the latest releases of the SmartComponent Library.

Hybrid Realm now using IAuthenticationService

We've updated the SmartHybridRealm class used for http authentication to leverage the IAuthenticationService. It is therefor required that for AppServers requiring http Authentication (e.g. REST or Web) the correct IAuthenticationService implementation is registered (using service.xml files).

Customers relying on the previous behavior should ensure that the Consultingwerk.SmartFramework.Authentication.AuthenticationService is regsitered as the IAuthenticationService. This implementation will auhtenticate users against the password stored in the SmartUser database table. 

When users with no Login Company set should be able to login using the SmartHybridRealm, it's required to set the Login Company Tennant Domain (similar to the field in the Login Company Maintenance) in the .restapplicationsettings / .applicationsettings, e.g.:

 

 "DefaultAuthenticationDomain": "consultingwerk" 

This is required as the Hydrid Realm Interface from Progress does not provide the domain name to the authentication method.

Improvement

SCL-2495 Added Option to Generate Data Access class with Database Name

Description:

We have implemented a new setting on the "Design" tab of the Business Entity Designer Settigs/Options Dialog:
"Qualify Source Tables with Database Name"
When this option is set, the Business Entity Designer will add the database name to the source table name of the Business Entity Temp-Tables.

SCL-2509 Added OpenEdge 12.0 to ProVersionEnum

Description:

To begin supporting the announced OpenEdge 12.0 release, we've added the release number to the ProVersionEnum.
As of today, we're not aware of blocking issues when using the latest SmartComponent Library release on OpenEdge 12.0 ESAP 5.

SCL-2510 Improve ObjectTokenSecurityService Performance

Description:

We have implemented some caching in the ObjectTokenSecurityService resulting in better Performance, especially when using the SmartRequestAuthorizationProvider.

SCL-2511 Suppress log output when the LogManager:CustomLogEntries are set to the current value again

Description:

We're now suppressing the log file messages like

[19/01/08@13:41:01.348+0100] P-024872 T-018944 1 AS-6 LogManager     ### CustomLogEntries set to: LogManager,ConfigurationFileParser


when the CustomLogEntries are set to the current value. This will result in much fewer log messages getting produced.

SCL-2512 UserGroupBusinessEntity now honors the FetchDataRequest:Tables property

Description:

The UserGroupBusinessEntity does now honor the Tables property of the FetchDataRequest. This especially allows to turn off the population of the ePossibleAssignments table.

SCL-72 Business Entity Designer Plugins now create Localizable Viewer and Form

Description:

The Business Entity Designer Plugins to generate a SmartViewerControl and a SmartWindowForm now generate Localizable Forms and Viewer. The .resx Files of the Form and Viewer (new) set the meta attribuite $this.Localizable to true. This causes the Visual Designer to write all localizable properties to the .resx file the next time the .cls file is opened in the Visual Designer.

New Feature

SCL-2506 Implemented a new SmartFilter Control

Description:

We have implemented a new type of SmartComponent Libary controls: The SmartFilterControl is a base class for user controls that are automatically subscribed to the CollectFilterValues event of a SmartBusinessEntityAdapter or SmartDatasetAdapter by setting the Adapter's "LinkFilterSource" to an instance of the filter control.
There are two ways to use this new link:
1) Using the new dynamic SmartDynamicFilterControl
Developer should add this ABL Control (Consultingwerk.SmartComponents.Implementation.SmartDynamicFilterControl) to the Visual Designer toolbox. Using the properies FilterColumnsInitial and FilterColumnsOptionally developers can specify the names of Business Entity Columns (without the table name) that should appear in the filter.
2) By building controls deriving from the SmartFilterControl base class

    /**
     * Purpose: This method is intended to be overridden by Filter Controls
     * Notes:
     * @param poParameter The CollectFilterValuesEventArgs with the data for this call
     */
    METHOD PROTECTED VOID CollectFilterValuesHandler (poParameter AS CollectFilterValuesEventArgs):


Developers should add required UI controls to the Filter control and handle adding filter criteria to a FetchData request issued by the data adapter in the method CollectFilterValuesHandler.
When the FilterControl should initiate retrieving data, developers should call the Filter's RetrieveData method.

SCL-2507 Implemented ability to configure consistent error message format

Description:

In previous releases the MessageProvider (e.g. GUI for .NET) returned error messages using the Message Text and the Message number and Group. The SmartMessageWebHandler returned only the Message Text.
We have implemented an optional parameter in the .applicationsettings/.restapplicationsettings JSON files that allows to set a message pattern (SUBSTITUTE) with the following arguments:
&1 Message Text
&2 Message Group
&3 message Number
Based on a pattern such as "&1 (&2:&3)" customers should be able to configure the desired error message format, including the ability to return only the Message Text.

SCL-2508 (c)2019

Description:

We've updated the (c) information in the Splash screens and our templates.
