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.

Overview of included tickets


Bug

SCL-2545 Fixed error when loading AuthorizationClient while starting AppServer client

Description:

We have fixed an issue when starting the AuthorizationClient service on an AppServer client
An Consultingwerk.Framework.Exceptions.ServiceLoaderException has occurred:
Error while loading service: Consultingwerk.SmartFramework.Authorization.AuthorizationClient
Unable to use dedicated business entity when not using the Service Interface.

SCL-2546 Fixed issue copying SmartMenu Structure record

SCL-2547 Angular Grid rendering: pageSizes property not returned to JSON layout for grids referencing an Annotation based design

Description:

We have fixed an issue that caused that grid instances in Angular forms have always been using the default set of pageSizes.

Improvement

SCL-2549 Implemented a class implementing the BEGINSMATCHES operator

Description:

As the BEGINSMATCHES handling (e.g. Lookup Dialog) was used in multiple places, we have implemented a class to handle the decision if the BEGINS or MATCHES operator should be used and eventually add's or trims an extra "*" to the search term. Sample usage:

USING Consultingwerk.* FROM PROPATH .

DEFINE VARIABLE oBeginsMatches AS BeginsMatches NO-UNDO .

ASSIGN oBeginsMatches = BeginsMatches:FromValue (cValue)
       cOperator      = oBeginsMatches:Operator
       cValue         = oBeginsMatches:Value .


SCL-2550 Updated Class Reference links to Microsoft .NET Documentation

Description:

We have updated the links used in our class reference ( https://www.consultingwerk.com/support/documentation/) to reflect changes to the Microsoft .NET reference site.

New Feature

SCL-2177 Implemented rendering of custom Angular components

Description:

Rendering of custom Angular components has been implemented based on the MetaCustomerControl repository class.
The placeholderId of the Angular component implementation needs to be referenced in the repository instance's PlaceholderId property.

SCL-2544 Implemented support for a LogicClass for SmartWindowForm objects

Description:

Similar to the support for LogicClasses on the SmartViewerControl, we have implemented the FormLogicClass property on the SmartWindowForm class which supports referencing the class name of an ISmartFormLogic implementation to be used as the logic class for forms.

    /**
     * Purpose: Gets and sets the class name of the FormLogic class
     * Notes:   The class named here, needs to implement the
     *          Consultingwerk.SmartComponents.Implementation.ISmartFormLogic
     *          interface
     */
    DEFINE PUBLIC PROPERTY FormLogicClass AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO INITIAL "":U
    GET.
    SET.


This has been implemented to support custom code on rendered Forms (SCL-2303).

SCL-2548 Implemented a general purpose Find box for the UltraGrid

Description:

We have implemented a general purpose find box that can be attached to the SmartDataBrowser and RenderedGridControl instances.

NEW SmartDataBrowserSearchProvider (smartDataBrowser1) .


The component handles the KeyPress event on the Grid and opens a panel with a text editor that allows the user typing in a search term based on the (first) sorted column of the grid. When the user hit's Enter, the grid will attempt to locate the first matching record (BEGINSMATCHES for Character field, >= for other data types).
