Risks of using undocumented feature

I am working on a plugin which manipulates rich text. Among other things, I need to retrieve record ids from the 'record link table'. Other than a reference to the 'record link table', CP does not seem to have documented anything regarding its implementation. After a bit of poking around, I've figur...

Add multiline option to STRING in fhutils.getParam

It would be nice to have the multiline option for STRING fields in fhutils.getParam. That way I wouldn't have to use a separate prompt for multiline input.

Re: Just started using Zerobrane

I've got the first version of 'FH API and Keywords for Zerobrane' working. It is totally aimed at programmer types. You will need to change the file paths at the beginning of the file to suit your system. At the moment, I've only defined functions (that I am currently using). I plan on adding module...

Re: Just started using Zerobrane

I also have a lot to do; I'm working on a major rewrite of our source and data entry plugin to take advantage of new features available in FH7. Plus, after 5 years, there are a number of improvements that we've identified. It's probably among the most fun to be had as a programmer, designing a new s...

Re: Just started using Zerobrane

Added TODO. I decided to setup an API file. Actually, there will be 2 files - one for the api and the second which will add syntax highlighting for the fh functions. I've got a very basic API file working. I set it up manually with 3 functions. But I'm going to use some automation. I plan to create ...

I often put TODO in my code. This sounds like a nice feature to add.

Re: Just started using Zerobrane

So, after a bit of reminiscing, back to Zerobrane... I've been fiddling around with the settings - got rid of all those pesky underlines that (I found) made it difficult to read my code, tweaked the syntax coloring a bit more. Next, I'm wondering if there's a way to control folding. Perhaps to only ...

Re: Just started using Zerobrane

My first job in the tech world was working at the remote computing center at University. We used to refill the paper supply for the line printers, tear-off and distribute student jobs, and, ah, unclog card reader jams. Good times!

OK. Now can run 2 copies at once. I just added -cfg to the shortcut.

Just started using Zerobrane

I've been using pspad to develop plugins for a number of years. For a while I've wished for code folding and today I finally decided to do something about it. Since I see that some people are using Zerobrane, I decided to try it out and after fixing the syntax highlighting colors (the default scheme...

Re: Displaying Richtext

Thank you Jane. This is exactly what I need.

I looked for something like this using the 'Search' tab in FH Plugin Help. Search term = 'richtext'

fhPromptUserForRichText does not appear in the results list.

Interesting, no?

Re: FH -> RootsMagic -> Ancestry (Work-in-Progress)

You are correct. Mary has parents, or a husband, or children. They could certainly be included in the sync algorithm. But RM doesn't seem to. In fact, this isn't a failing of just RM. Merge routines are not so great in other programs as well. I believe that FH has one of the best because you have co...

Re: FH -> RootsMagic -> Ancestry (Work-in-Progress)

Yes, that is correct.

That is why I see direct access to the RM database as the only viable option to creating a process which will work reliably and with a minimum of effort on the part of the user.

So, I'm waiting for CP to add LUASQL back in.

Re: FH -> RootsMagic -> Ancestry (Work-in-Progress)

Mike, _UID is definitely not a workaround in RM.

It is a feature that allows you to differentiate between all those women named 'Mary' with no surname and no other details. :D

Never mind. :oops:

I found the (obvious) solution. This is what happens when you don't get enough sleep because you keep getting up in the middle of the night to write code.

Creating Templated Source

I think I know the answer to this, but I'm asking before I write my own implementation.

I am creating a new templated source.

Do I need to create the elements of the template (Name, Collection, Category etc) and the fields myself? Or is there an existing function that does it?

Re: FH -> RootsMagic -> Ancestry (Work-in-Progress)

Hi Mark, I believe that we have gone about as far as we can at this point. I don't plan on implementing the interface until I can access the RM database directly in order to automate the comparison process. That means LUASQL. Perhaps Calico Pie will get it working in a future update. Alternatively, ...

Re: Recording Business Addresses

Yes, that is correct. Property = Possessions

For the purpose of recording business addresses, however, I would not make the assumption that the address was owned by the individual. Therefore, the use of Possessions would be incorrect.
