Description: 
 This "CHT Snap-In" utility is part of CHT's "written-in-C#" group of CMD-line utilities. It is classed as a "CHT Batch Bot" for documentation purposes, since this class of utility may be run independently from the DOS command-line or from inside a Clarion application using Clarion RUN(), HNDUTIL.ShellRunHide() or one of the snap-in run methods designated to it in CHT's HNDSnapCall Class.

CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE source code, because it is not in Clarion app format, is available from CHT via special request in the form of a C# wizard. Once imported as a project into Visual Studio, the developer can customize the application to his own specifications should that ever be necessary.

CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE (AKA: CHT Snap To PDF), is a command-line translation tool that is able to translate well-formed HTML 5 documents into exact-copy PDF documents that include full use of correctly formatted internal and external links.

CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE requires no pre-configuration and has no DLL dependencies in this version or later. It can be run from the DOS prompt, from a standard Windows short cut or from inside a Clarion application. A number of CHT demo and utility applications, for example HNDDOCUMENTBUILDER make extensive use of this document translation application.

CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE can be incorporated into your application from the CHT Snap-In interface where you can find a "CHTSnap2PDF" option. Our template sets an IDE directive to copy the CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE into your application's compile directory. The template also enables a CHT Class called HNDSNAPCALL which contains functions for calling the editor from your application.

For DEMO application which incorporate CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE as described above, see HNDDOCUMENTBUILDER.APP, HNDPREVIEWER.APP and HNDTPXHTNEXT.APP. These applications are described here: HNDDOCUMENTBUILDER.APP.

CategoryApplication Snap-Ins
Description: 
 This "CHT Snap-In" utility is part of CHT's "written-in-C#" group of CMD-line utilities. It is classed as a "CHT Batch Bot" for documentation purposes, since this class of utility may be run independently from the DOS command-line or from inside a Clarion application using Clarion RUN(), HNDUTIL.ShellRunHide() or one of the snap-in run methods designated to it in CHT's HNDSnapCall Class.

CHTSNAPGET.EXE source code, because it is not in Clarion app format, is available from CHT via special request in the form of a C# wizard. Once imported as a project into Visual Studio, the developer can customize the application to his own specifications should that ever be necessary.

CHTSNAPGET.EXE is a command-line utility to download files from a standard, unprotected web url like a generally accessible web page or open file delivery URL. It uses the HTTP protocol. CHT Snap Get can be configued manually from the command line, or by leveraging a Clarion application to write the necessary registry entries. Once configured, to call into a specific server, and subdirectory, a file may be obtained from there with a single --fetch command.

CHTSNAPGET.EXE is added as a component to your Clarion application, from the CHT's global "Application Snap-Ins" template. A procedure-local template called SNAPGETSTARTBUTTON provides an easy way to configure the application two different ways from a Clarion window procedure and to trigger download of a file named in a procedure entry field.

For a DEMO application, see HNDTESTCHTSNAPGET.APP. That application is described here: DOCS FOR HNDTESTCHTSNAPGET.APP.

These DOS command-line inputs are required to fetch a remote file:

chtsnapget --fetch FILENAME
chtsnapget --fetchuz FILENAME (to unzip on receipt of .zip file)

FILENAME must be the raw name, no path, e.g. myfile.pdf
Remote subdirectories are configured in the setup dialog.
Wild card file names are not permitted. URL processing is stopped.
This application must be configured before use.
Configure manually via the command line, or by programmatically
completing registry values with Clarion HNDSnapCall.CHTSnapGetConfig()
class function (HNDSNAPCALL.INC/.CLW).
To configure from the DOS command line, type:

chtsnapget --config

Then, complete the provided dialog values.

Build:CHT Snap MAPI CMD Utility -- Version: 21.17.07.00
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryApplication Snap-Ins
Description: 
 This "CHT Snap-In" utility is part of CHT's "written-in-C#" group of CMD-line utilities. It is classed as a "CHT Batch Bot" for documentation purposes, since this class of utility may be run independently from the DOS command-line or from inside a Clarion application using Clarion RUN(), HNDUTIL.ShellRunHide() or one of the snap-in run methods designated to it in CHT's HNDSnapCall Class.

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE source code, because it is not in Clarion app format, is available from CHT via special request in the form of a C# wizard. Once imported as a project into Visual Studio, the developer can customize the application to his own specifications should that ever be necessary.

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE (AKA: CHT Snap MAPI) is able to send emails using the system's default MAPI client if such a client is already properly configured. Emails sent this way may be found, after sending, in the "Sent" mail repository of the default client as if they were sent manually from the client interface.

CHT Snap Mapi does not require any kind of pre-configuration involving a configurtion dialog or maintaining registry entries. All information required for any individual email-send task can be passed on the application command line, since the installed email client is already pre-configured.

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE is added as a component to your Clarion application, from the CHT's global "Application Snap-Ins" template. A procedure-local template called SNAPMAPISTARTBUTTON provides an easy way send MAPI email from a Clarion window procedure.

For a DEMO application, see HNDTESTCHTSNAPTOOLS.APP. That application is described here: DOCS FOR HNDTESTCHTSNAPTOOLS.APP.

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE accepts DOS command-line inputs in order to send text or HTML emails.

Three or four command-line inputs are required:


CHTSNAPMAPI "TO" "SUBJECT" "MESG.TXT OR MESG.HTML" ["ATTACH.FILE"]

Inputs with spaces or extended characters must be surrounded by double quotes.
Otherwise, inputs may be provided without surrounding double quotes.
ATTACH.FILE is optional. This option represents optional attachment file(s).
Mail results are written to standard output, namely the console.
MESG.TXT, MESG.HTML and ATTACH.FILE may include full paths to different folder locations.
Multiple TO addresses may be separated by either semi-colons or commas.
Multiple attachments may be separated by either semi-colons or commas.

Name:CHTSNAPSEND.EXE
Build:CHT Snap SEND CMD Utility -- Version: 21.17.07.00
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryApplication Snap-Ins
Description: 
 This "CHT Snap-In" utility is part of CHT's "written-in-C#" group of CMD-line utilities. It is classed as a "CHT Batch Bot" for documentation purposes, since this class of utility may be run independently from the DOS command-line or from inside a Clarion application using Clarion RUN(), HNDUTIL.ShellRunHide() or one of the snap-in run methods designated to it in CHT's HNDSnapCall Class.

CHTSNAPSEND.EXE source code, because it is not in Clarion app format, is available from CHT via special request in the form of a C# wizard. Once imported as a project into Visual Studio, the developer can customize the application to his own specifications should that ever be necessary.

CHTSNAPSEND.EXE (AKA: CHT Snap Send), is an error-reporting tool which integrates, with your Clarion application via CHT templates. It is able to provide screen-snaps of error-causing procedure windows as well as lower-level error codes and error messages issued by the application when an error is encountered. CHTSNAPSEND greatly increases the accuracy of error reporting from applications as it eliminates most of the error-reporting steps that end-users are likely to have difficulties with.

CHT Snap Send email settings can be configued manually using its internal setup dialog, or by leveraging a Clarion application to write the necessary registry entries from our Snap-Ins template interface.

This application does not take command-line inputs. It is leveraged by CHT's Snap-In template interface provided globally on the CHTSNAPGET tab and procedure-locally on a procedure tab that appears when the global CHTSNAPGET tab is enabled.

The "CHT Snapsend" template element, when enabled, writes global SnapSend configuration entries to the Windows Registry in order to customize some of the actions and messages that CHT SnapSend performs and displays, while taking application screen snaps. Further, this template causes the auto-population of multiple instances of a procedure-level template (one per window procedure) called "ProcedureSnapins(HndTools)". ProcedureSnapins(HndTools) instances are de-populated when ApplicationSnapins(HndTools) is removed. See the docs for ProcedureSnapIns to discover the procedure-specific configurations that are possible with that auto-populated template.

EmbedSnapCall: This template may be used to attach to your application, at the procedure level, a CHT Code module containing a single class called HNDSnapCall. This extension creates a single, local instance of the HNDSnapCall Class which is used to call a variety of "CHT SNAP-IN" executable tools in a manner that resembles standard DLL calls, using parameter passing on the command line.

ProcedureSnapIns: On a procedure-by-procedure basis, this template allows the developer to optionally expose the state of procedure-local and global variables while the procedure is running. These variables are added into a text file that is sent via email along with the procedure-window snapshot taken by CHT SnapSend. This template is also the parent of a button template called "HandyWindowsStopStartSnapSendButton(HndTools)". That means the button template does not appear in the IDE's control templates list until ApplicationSnapins' "Enable?" switch is checked.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDACCES.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDACCES.APP
Description: 
 This application demonstrates the added speed and convenience of the NATIVE SQL filtering capability built into the CHT query parser classes. Make sure to check the tutorial available with this application for more information about what this demonstration application illustrates about The Clarion Handy Tools.

The CHT query parser has the ability to generate optimised NATIVE SQL directly from your real-language queries. The SQL is then sent to your data base using View{{PROP:SQLFilter} rather than via ABC.SetFilter(). In the O8A1.0 build we've added an optional QUERY BUILDER (OBJ.QBInterface()) to the ? button of the QueryParsingFilterControl template.

The CHT-generated SQL appears in the WHERE clause component of the SELECT string sent to your data base. The chief advantage of this is speed. Clarion's file drivers do not always translate clarion filter strings into effective SQL. In some cases, depending how complex your query, ABC.Setfilter() causes the driver to literally read large portions of the data base, forcing the driver to manage filtering rather than letting the data base handle it.

This demonstration application requires the sample data base provided with MICROSOFT ACCESS, called Northwind. The application will find the data base and register it with ODBC if not already registered.

Templates:Templates In Application HNDBUILDVIDEOLIST.APP
Description: 
 This application builds a video playlist .NDX file that can be used with all CHT Video Servers, like HNDVIDEOSERVER.APP, and video player clients like HNDVIDEOPLAYER.APP.

It also creates separate HTML5 "video-play" pages for each video, using the name of that video, plus .HTM.

It further creates a video upload batch file using CHT XSA utility HNDSLFCMDXSA.EXE to upload the videos, the .NDX file and the .HTM play files to your video server all in one batch.

Lastly, it creates a "weblinks.txt" file containing a series of web links to the videos just processed and once uploaded to the server URL indicated on this applications's configuration dialog.

When the application starts, it presents a configuration screen asking for these values:
VIDEO URL: -- location of the video server IP and port (or URL)
VIDEO SIZE AS PERCENT: -- default is 100% of recorded size
COMPANY: -- name of video delivery company [OPT]
INDEX NAME: -- name of the .NDX file to be generated
VIDEO PATH: -- local path where .MP4 videos are located.

The applications scans the video path for all .MP4 files and produces VIDEONAME.HTM for each .MP4 found. These HTML5 files (one for each separate .MP4 video found, will play that video from your web server in any HTML5 compatible browser.

The models for all generated HTML files are located in \accessory\hnd\model\ if developers would like to modify them.

The application also produces a VIDEO.NDX file (using the name you provided in the configuration screen) which may be used by CHT player application HNDVIDEOPLAYER.APP or HNDVIDEOEDUCATION.APP as a downloadable video index.

Complete the description portion in each video entry and save the file back to the server. Next time you run this application to create a new index in order to include more videos, the description entries from the existing VIDEO.NDX file are copied forward into the new index, where applicable.

To further adapt this application for your own use, open the MAIN procedure in the Clarion Embeditor and follow the comments provided.

Name:HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP
Build:CHT XML2HTML Bulk Mailer [V17.10.20.0001]
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryXML2HTML
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application", CHT Bulk Mail Batcher, is a batch-oriented approach to email sending via SMTP from Clarion applications or from DOS batch files using one or the other of two CHT Command Line utility applications called HNDMAILSMTP.EXE and CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE.

Generate HTML Mail With Internal Style Sheets
It is important for HTML email to use internal style sheets so that the email, on arriving in the recipient's inbox, does not need to request external style sheets from the web. It is therefore deemed "safe" by email clients. It displays immediately, like text mail without the user needing to click any kind of "allow" switch.

Style Sheet Generating Template
This application illustrates a new template that allows the developer to change every important aspect of numerous useful HTML style sheets so that different "looks" can easily be incorporated into different HTML-generating-procedures. To create HTML outputs with new and different looks, simply copy the existing example procedure and add your own style and flare by adjusting template switches and by removing or adding to the various "sections" incorporated into our examples.

Select Single Or Multipe Email Addresses
Select one or more email addresses from the email browse(s) using standard MS Windows record marking and an .HTML file written ahead of time using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE or generated by one of this application's "AutoGen" procedures.

A batch file is generated, which in a loop, successively calls HNDMAILSMTP.EXE or CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE (depending which one you choose to use) to send the HTML email body to the addresses selected above. The batch file may be run either from the DOS prompt or from a simple desktop link or from inside your own Clarion applications, or using CHT's HNDBATCHRUNNER.EXE. utility.

An example of this run-from-Clarion concept, is provided in the "Run (Send Mail With) Last Generated Batch Script" menu of this application.

CHT Bulk Mail Batcher is able to import email addresses exported from other applications such as Windows Live Mail.

Preconfigure your SMTP email-send account beforehand and select that account for sending before generating your batch file.

 This "CHT Utility Application", CHT Bulk Net Mail Promo, is a HNDNETSMTP.DLL based approach to HTML-email-sending via SMTP from Clarion applications. It shares the same XML-based mail "outline" files used by HNDBULKMAILSMTP.APP.

This application processes the HTML-email directly via the above-mentioned DLL, rather than by starting an executable batch utility. Email creation and generation features, and XML and HTML source files are idential to those provided in HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP for cross-compatibility.

Generate HTML Mail With Internal Style Sheets
It is important for HTML email to use internal style sheets so that the email, on arriving in the recipient's inbox, does not need to request external style sheets from the web. It is therefore deemed "safe" by email clients. It displays immediately, like text mail without the user needing to click any kind of "allow" switch.

To create HTML outputs with new and different looks, simply copy the existing example procedure and add your own style and flare by adjusting template switches and by removing or adding to the various "sections" incorporated into our example procedures.

Select Single Or Multipe Email Addresses
Select one or more email addresses from the email browse(s) using standard MS Windows record marking and an .HTML file written ahead of time using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE or generated by one of this application's HTML-generating procedures.

When "Send" is invoked, on a group of selected records, the HNDNETSMTP.DLL sends the HTML email body to the addresses selected. Each email is processed and a success or failure outcome string is written into the email file. Images inserted into the email body are processed and included as always.

CHT Bulk Net Mail Promo is able to import email addresses exported from other applications such as Windows Live Mail. And up to 9 different email address source files can be maintained in this application. These files are shared with CHT Bulk Mail Batcher.

Preconfigure your SMTP email-send account beforehand and select that account for sending before attempting to send any mail.

Name:HNDCLEAN.EXE
Build:CHT Clarion Gen-Code Cleaner -- Version: 21.17.02.05
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryApplication Snap-Ins
Description: 
 This "CHT Snap-In" utility is part of CHT's "written-in-C#" group of CMD-line utilities. It is classed as a "CHT Batch Bot" for documentation purposes, since this class of utility may be run independently from the DOS command-line, a Windows batch file, or from inside a Clarion IDE Tools menu.

HNDCLEAN.EXE source code, because it is not in Clarion app format, is available from CHT via special request in the form of a C# wizard. Once imported as a project into Visual Studio, the developer can customize the application to his own specifications should that ever be necessary.

HNDCLEAN.EXE (AKA: CHT Clarion Gen-Time Code Cleaner), is a replacement for the Clarion IDE's inadequately functioning "Clean Solution" operation. It erases APPNAME*.CLW and APPNAME*.OBJ files, and more, when configured to match the IDE's .RED file [RELEASE] or [DEBUG] configurations.

HNDCLEAN.EXE can be installed to the IDE's "External Tools" interface under the name "CHT Clarion Gen-Code Cleaner". The "Arguments" field should be completed as explained in our document located at http://www.cwhandy.ca/howtousehndclean.htm.

If you've made modifications to your application that requires the application to fully regenerate, with this tool installed, you can erase the .CLW and .OBJ files associated with the application currently loaded. Then by using the IDE's "Build Generate and Make" menu, the entire application is regenerated from scratch, and compiled with all hand-embedded changes and template interface changes being correctly applied.

Contact CHT at: support@cwhandy.ca for price and availability of C# source code information.

Name:HNDCLIENTCL.APP
Build:CHT Support Forum (Clarion) Client [V10.17.10.0504]
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryInternet - HTTP Clients
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDCLIENTCL.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDCLIENTCL.APP
Description: 
 This application is a CHT Client Server application to be used with HNDCLIENTSV.APP - a client server app - to provide messaging and support services using the same data tables as HNDMTSNG.APP the Browser Server that provides our web-based support forum. The app uses a dictionary called HNDCLIENTSV.DCT.

This client application serves to illustrate how to log in and then make a variety of data requests and data updates from a Clarion client application (using the HNDCLNT class) to a CHT Server configured for Client Server Mode. This application and accompanying server provide the theoretical backdrop for the CHT Client Server course.

NOTE: This client uses a two-piece login (Serial number, Last Name) and does not require the email address. The server (HNDCLIENTCL.APP) omits the Email Address Key on the server login configuration dialog to make this possible.

This applicaiton uses templates HandyWebClientBrowseProcedure and HandyWebClientUpdateFormProcedure to build the web browse and web update form, respectively.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Templates:Templates In Application HNDCLIENTCLLEAN.APP
Description: 
 This application is an example CHT Client application to be used with HNDCLIENTSVLEAN.APP. The application is a connection mechanism only, to which the developer should attach his browses, forms, reports and so on. This "lean" version client has had all non-essential componentry removed and focusses entirely on CHT templates required to build a CHT Web Client.

The application dictionary is HNDCLIENTSVLEAN.DCT.

The server, HNDCLIENTSVLEAN.APP, is an example Client Server with no data views, so it is expected that the developer will use that server (saved under a different name) to act as the basis for his Client server views. This "lean" version server has had all non-essential components removed and focusses entirely on the CHT templates required to build a CHT Web Server.

Once that server contains at least one completed data view, then this application (saved under a different name) can begin to act as the basis for an HTTP client that connects to your new server and displays its views.

This application is entirely template-built and jumpstart-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

Description: 
 This application is an example CHT Client application to be used with HNDCLIENTSVLEAN4VIEW.APP (the server). This application illustrates a single Web browse, one Web form, one Web process and one Web report built on a single back-end server views.

The server, HNDCLIENTSVLEAN4VIEW.APP, is an example Client Server with multiple back-end data views built on several .TPS based demo files called "People", "Folks", "Product" and "NGMember" used in other CHT demo applications.

While this 1-view application accesses only one of that server's four views, other applications planned in this series, will successively access 2 views, 3 views and finally 4 views. This series of 4 client applications and the server (HNDCLIENTSVLEAN4VIEW.APP) will be used to create a training video series and a set of support documents to teach development of CHT Client Server applications.

This client's browse uses exclusively PopFavoriteQueries_CSBL to accompany ClientServerBrowseListBox.

ClientServerBrowseListBox populates the QueryParsingFilterControl Template template natively, but to illustrate how it can be done, we've manually pulled the QPFC off these browses and replaced them with the PopFavoriteQueries_CSBL template to handle all queries.

Use this Client and it's accompanying server as a study example when you begin building your own CHT Web Client Server applications.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDCLIENTSV.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDCLIENTSV.APP
Description: 
 This application demonstrates a CHT Server acting as an interactive, remote data server to a Clarion client application. Specifically this server packages MESSAGES data so that it may be browsed, edited, and reported remotely, not from a browser but from a standard Clarion desktop application.

This server application requires a matching demonstration client called HNDCLIENTCL.APP and a dictionary called HNDCLIENTSV.DCT.

The server provides both compressed and encrypted data streams consisting of browse data, form data, report and process data based on interactive queries placed from the client side targeted at pre-determined data views (single or multi-table) provided in the server.

NOTE: This server is configured for a two-piece login. It omits the Email Address Key on the BrowserServerInitialization controls template. In a two-piece login only the Login ID and Last Name (in this case) are used.

This application is entirely template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

NOTE: This is a client server for reading and posting remote messages -- from which to both learn and with which to build forward. The back end views portions of the server are already installed and working.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" is used internally at CHT to read through our class header files to gather class descriptive information which is then stored into an .SQLITE table so that it can be browsed and queried.

The application also generates HTML versions of this information for use in our website. These files are called chtclasses.html and chtclassesbyname.html.

Key templates illustrated: ExplorerBrowse, QueryParsingFilterControl, EmbedDiskFunctions, EmbedFilterFunctions, HandySourceProcedure and EmbedStandardWebPageHeader.

NOTE: The work of more fully documenting the CHT Classes is an on-going effort. This documentation automation tool is part of that effort. The design of this application has been closely modelled on the "CHT App-Doc Template Template Reader" application with which we extensively document our toolkit's templates. The key difference in this application is that it creates an .SQLITE table the contents of which are generated directly into HTML documents. There is no intermediate text representation of the documents as in HNDCLXHT.APP and HNDAPPSPLASHTOHTML.APP.

Templates:Templates In Application HNDDRLDN.APP
Description: 
 In this application, we're illustrating some new SQL "drill-down" capabilities build into the locators available for ExplorerBrowse, LocatorOverRideControl and HandyMarkerBrowse. When any of these locators is configured to act as a filtering locator you have the option of asking the template to remember the last locator query and to re-apply it with your next locator query. The more locates performed before the locator clear button is clicked, the deeper you drill down into the current data set.

A new feature on the HandyMarkerBrowseProcessButton and HandyMarkerBrowesReportButton templates lets you opt to have the marked record set translated into an SQL IN(x,y,z) request to be sent to a report or process rather than a queue of marked records. Default behavior is as before, to send a queue.

This demonstration application requires the sample data base provided with MICROSOFT ACCESS, called Northwind. You do not need a copy of the Microsoft Access to test this, and a copy of NORTHWIND.MDB is included in the install. The application will find the data base and register it with ODBC if not already registered.

By simply typing 3 or 4 letters into this field a dropdown appears which displays the closest matches for the typed value. By continuing to type beyond 4 characters a matching value is brought into your autocomplete control.

Alternatively, with the down arrow key, you can scroll down into the dropdown control to select one of the values that appear there.

Adding to the autocomplete file: If you type a unique value and press CtrlEnter, the entered value is added to the autocomplete source file.

Deleting from the autocomplete file: If you bring an existing value from the autocomplete file into the autocomplete entry control and press CtrlDelete you are able to delete a value from the autocomplete source file.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDEVENTSERVER.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDEVENTSERVER.APP
Description: 
 This application is a dyamic-page, fully end-user-interactive, web server. For study by beginners, this basic "Browser" server has only one view and one web browse started from a simple query-by-link query page.

The fundamental principles and practices of this server's design are pure ABC. If you understand Clarion, and ABC Object Oriented Principles, you can duplicate a server of this type using The Clarion Handy Tools. It may be used as the basis for building forward any other type of "Browser" server design or simply as a model on which to base a new design.

Web scripts constituting the "user interface" for this "Browser" server are built, as usual, using CHT Scripter. These scripts are fully previewable and are live-data-interactive during script modification and testing.

CHT Servers of this type do not rely on any generic web server software like Microsoft Internet Information Server. Our servers tie directly into the TCP/IP libraries built into the Windows NT/XP/Vista operating systems. Beyond that, all Internet listening, sending activities, data packaging, compression, encryption and so forth are written in Clarion OOP source code available as part of CHT's standard installation.

Principle server templates in use are: EmbedBrowserServer and BrowserServerInitializationControls, accompanied by a group of page-builder templates that are able to generate XHTML or pure Javascript Data Objects. Included with the CHT Tool Kit is a multi-function editor/scripter (HNDSCRPT.APP) which is used to design the client-side/browser side pages and forms, including CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and JS (Javascript) Subroutines.

NOTE: This is a browser server medical events server -- from which to learn and with which to build forward. Some back end views
portions of the server are already installed and working.

It shows how to configure up to 4 browses (1 parent and 3 children) which must each reset when the parent is reset but which then must also reset the each of the child browses below them in a top to bottom cascade.

TOPMOST (PARENT) resets all child browses
LEVEL 1 CHILD resets LEVEL 2 and LEVEL 3 CHILD
LEVEL 2 CHILD Resets LEVEL 3 CHILD

This application may be combined with HNDSQLTRACE to see the SQL being triggered as browses are reset through navigation, query, and order change. CHT Explorerbrowse optimizes and reduces the counter-productive SQL "Chatter" that normally issues from ABC Browse Class during SQL resets.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDFAVORITER.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDFAVORITER.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Applicaiton" reads MS Internet Explorer Favorites into a Topspeed file and provides a set of tools to organize and edit them.

Once organized, favorites can be exported selectively or entirely to a desktop folder called "Favorites1", "Favorites2", and so on, organized by topics as determined by the user.

The exported folder does not interfere in any way with the existing MS Internet Explorer favorites. Yet the folder produced can be used to access favorites directly without first needing to open I.E.

The "Favorites" folders produced can be zipped and shared with others in whole or in part.

Local documents and applications and even email addresses can be installed as favorites. These, naturally, are less portable than remote web addresses, unless they're located in the same directory structure on the machine of a recipient of your "Favorites" folder.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDFBACKBUILDER.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDFBACKBUILDER.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" is a translation-file tool that every CHT developer who builds non-English applications will want to begin using right away.

In the past, when CHT shipped a HNDFBACK.TRN (CHT Classes Translation File) that contained some new variables, it was the responsibility of the developer to copy these new variables to their personal HNDCUSTOM.TRN to avoid missing-variable errors during compilation.

This application automates that once manual process.

By opening this application and importing their HNDCUSTOM.TRN under the appropriate language menu, developers are able to generate a new HNDCUSTOM.TRN which merges their personal HNDCUSTOM.TRN with the latest version of HNDFBACK.TRN. Already-translated variables replace the English language versions and new variables are present and marked as "NEW" to make them easy to find.

After merging, and generating a new HNDCUSTOM.TRN based on a combination of their already-translated variables and new ones from HNDFBACK.TRN, developers are able to continue using their own HNDCUSTOM.TRN without having to manually synch new variables to avoid compilation errors.

CategoryFile BLOB Functions
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDFBLOB.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDFBLOB.APP
Description: 
 This application illustrates two blob functions, JumpStartFileToBlob() and JumpStartBlobToFile(), available from the standard AACHTControlPanel template interface.

Please note, that the code in the EntryPointMain() procedure has very little to do with file to blob or blob to file. This code looks up a file name to be sent to a blob and manages the data base that stores the blob record. Your blob data base may look nothing like the file ZStore that we are using here.

The salient point is that when calling the functions JumpStartFileToBlob() and its inverse, JumpStartBlobToFile(), you are responsible for creating, fetching and saving the data base records in the blob-containing data table. The functions provided, will insert the files to, and extract files independently from, your blob record. Data base I/O is up to you. However the I/O required is standard ABC stuff which you should already know how to do.

We have demonstrated here a couple of HNDDisk class functions to help us with our popup menu, when someone selects a file to be restored or deleted, for example. These have no direct relationship with the two blob functions being demonstrated.

First, the server provides a web browse and form that let you choose one of three CHT versions and the associated installer(s).

Second, the server provides authentication for the downloaded installers, connecting current subscribers and rejecting expired subscribers. When a current subscriber connects via the updater, a list of current installation HZOs is provided from a standard .TPS or SQL file that you control. The installer can use this list to download those files for which CRCs are different from local containers it may have present.

Description: 
 This basic installation example illustrates a file installation/acquisition method that pulls together several CHT classes, namely HNDHTTP, HNDCLNT, HNDISKEX and HNDBUFFER, to provide developers with an easy-to-implement means of building across-the-web installation or updating into their products.

This application first connects to HNDFILSVSPECIAL.APP or HNDFILSV.APP or HNDSVLV.APP to download an installation files list. Next it downloads the listed files and places them in the designated directories below the installer's configured target directory. Files are only downloaded when the CRC value provided for any file is different than the CRC of the file already installed.

The server auto-encrypts and auto-compresses files at the request of this client and files are auto-decrypted and auto-decompressed on arrival. Replaced files are copied to the backup directory before replacement is made.

A configuration procedure in this application is provided in order to change the installation server as well as the local target and backup directories. The installer always recalls it's last installation log from the config menu.

This app was developed as a test application to study ABC Browse Class reset behaviour by tracing with HandySQLTrace. It was used in revisions to CHT Browse Classes and templates made May 2012.

The purpose of those revisions was to eliminate double and triple SQL requests send from the ABC Browse classes whenever the browse was reset by an order change or a filter change. The ABC BrowseClass function called ResetQueue() is a monument to inefficiency and bad design in the context of an SQL application.

Since CHT's HandyMarkerBrowse is an extension of the ABC browse class, all resets and queue refills are handled by the ABC Browse Class. Our efforts with this CHT browse extension revision was to as much as possible mitigate the inefficient behaviours built into the ABC Browse Class.

This application in conjunction with HNDSQLTRACE.EXE can be used to illustrate just how much CHT's latest Browse Extension templates can improve the speed and efficiency of your SQL browses.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" is designed to be used as CHT's official media player (variation 1). It streams .MP4 versions of CHT Educational Videos from our CHT Video Server. At the same time the application also serves as a model for developers wishing to build their own streaming video players.

The player is built on CHT Template HandyComMediaControl which uses the Windows Media Player COM object based in WMP.DLL.

The player is capable of playing off-line any videos which have been previously viewed to completion. On-line viewing of uncached videos begins quickly, once approximately 5 percent of the video has downloaded, and already-cached videos begin immediately since they are not downloaded again.

If you plan to adapt this application to act as a video player for your own videos, a useful, accompanying application called HNDBUILDVIDEOLIST.APP can build video index files on your CHT-based video server, of the type utilized by this application and by the HNDWindowsMediaPlayer class (HNDWMP.INC, HNDWMP,CLW, HNDWMP.TLB).

Description: 
 This application illustrates a mixed browse extension, SQL Join set of browses consisting of HandyMarkerBrowses (Parent, Child1 and Child3) and ExplorerBrowse (Child2).

This app was developed as a test application to study ABC Browse Class reset behaviour by tracing with HandySQLTrace. It was used in revisions to CHT Browse Classes and templates made late May 2012.

The purpose of those revisions was to eliminate double and triple SQL requests sent from the ABC Browse classes whenever the browse was reset by an order change or a filter change.

It is the nature of templates of one type to generate code together in a given embed point (say priority 9500) in the order that the templates are populated on the window. This rule of thumb does not hold when populating two templates with different types into the same embed priority point. One template type will generate as a group, then the other, regardless of the order in which they're populated.

When creating a JOIN SET with mixed browse extensions such as in this application, CHT had to devise a way to get the templates to populate in a consistent order that matched the developer's design for browse filling order. A JOINed set of browses must always fill in the order PARENT, CHILD1, CHILD2, CHILD3.

If the templates generate into the same embed point in the wrong order (due to template types having been mixed together) the firing order of browses can become jumbled and events can collide such that browses fill in the wrong order and SQL "Chatter' results.

Our latest implementation of HandyMarkerBrowse and ExplorerBrowse extensions has overcome this native template-generation-order behaviour (where order matters) by generating into named, hidden, embed points based on each template's position in the JOIN SET heirarchy, regardless of the template type, allowing mixed template types in a given JOIN SET.

This application in conjunction with HNDSQLTRACE.EXE can be used to illustrate just how much CHT's latest Browse Extension templates can improve the speed and efficiency of your SQL browses.

While all other CHT demo applications contain aspects of what this application illustrates, HNDMNSPL.APP focuses on templates and JUMPSTARTS that provide short-cuts to better-looking applications.

ApplicationImagesEx keeps track of the images used in your application and controls consistency of your visual style in a format that can be configured at an installation-wide level.

EmbedWindowFunctions provides, advanced icon menus, application-in-tray, window boxes and much more.

The parent template of the above two is AACHTControlPanel, from which many aspects of application configuration are controlled.

Procedures in this application are available as JUMPSTART procedures via the CHTJumpStartProceduresUtility Template under the topic Main And Splash.

See also the CHT demo application called HNDCOLOR.APP which acts as a color, font, style configurator for the above suite of templates.

CategoryWindows API
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDMONITORDIRECTORYSRVC.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDMONITORDIRECTORYSRVC.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" illustrates a CHT template called EmbedFileNotifyFunctions and a new class called HNDFileNotify (HNDFILENOTIFY.INC/HNDFILENOTIFY.CLW).

The class attached to your procedure by this template, once initialized, gives your procedure the ability to detect all changes occuring in a nominated directory and, optionally, its subdirectories. Whenever a new file is added to the target area, or a file is changed, your procedure is sent an event called EVENT:FileChanged to signal that this has occurred. At that point, what you do as a programmer to act on that event is wide open.

This application illustrates one use of this powerful, directory monitoring capability. When a file is added to the designated source directory, that file is copied into a target directory somewhere else on the local network.

The file or files meeting the filter setting provided on the application interface, eventually then, end up sitting somewhere else on the network, for instance, in a server directory. There is also an optional switch to remove the processed source file(s) from the directory being monitored.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDMTSCL.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDMTSCL.APP
Description: 
 This application is a CHT Client Server application to be used with HNDMTSSV.APP - a client server app - to provide messaging and support services using the same data tables as HNDMTSNG.APP the Browser Server that provides our web-based support forum. The app uses a dictionary called HNDMTSSV.DCT.

This client application serves to illustrate how to log in and then make a variety of data requests and data updates from a Clarion client application (using the HNDCLNT class) to a CHT Server configured for Client Server Mode. This application and accompanying server provide the theoretical backdrop for the CHT Client Server course.

This uses templates HandyWebClientBrowseProcedure and HandyWebClientUpdateFormProcedure to build the web browse and web update form, respectively.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDMTSNG.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDMTSNG.APP
Description: 
 This application is a dyamic-page, fully end-user-interactive, web server. While this example server is dedicated to acting as a Forum Server the principles built in, are meant to apply to all dynamic, interactive web page servers.

We've had this server - or an earlier variation of it - in active service since 2002. It has evolved since then, as have the templates and classes on which it is based. But the fundamental principles and practices in its design have remained pure ABC. If you understand Clarion, and ABC Object Oriented Principles, you can duplicate a server of this type using The Clarion Handy Tools.

CHT Servers of this type do not rely on any generic web server software like Microsoft Internet Information Server. It ties directly into the TCP/IP libraries built into the Windows operating system. Beyond that, all Internet listening, sending activities, data packaging, compression, encryption and so forth are written in Clarion OOP source code available as part of the fully-integrated CHT tool kit.

Principle server templates in use are: EmbedBrowserServer and BrowserServerInitializationControls, accompanied by a group of page-builder templates that are able to generate XHTML or pure Javascript Data Objects. Included with the CHT Tool Kit is a multi-function editor/scripter (HNDSCRPT.APP) which is used to design the client-side/browser side pages and forms, including CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and JS (Javascript) Subroutines.

The dictionary file used by this application is HNDMTSNG.DCT.

NOTE: This is a browser server version of CHT's support forum -- from which to learn and with which to build forward. The back end views portions of the server are already installed and working.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDMTSSV.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDMTSSV.APP
Description: 
 This application demonstrates a CHT Server acting as an interactive, remote data server to a Clarion client application. Specifically this server packages MESSAGES data so that it may be browsed, edited, and reported remotely, not from a browser but from a standard Clarion desktop application.

This server application requires a matching demonstration client called HNDMTSCL.APP and a dictionary called HNDMTSSV.DCT.

The server provides both compressed and encrypted data streams consisting of browse data, form data, report and process data based on interactive queries placed from the client side targeted at pre-determined data views (single or multi-table) provided in the server.

NOTE: This server uses a three-piece login, LoginID, Last Name and Email Address. For an example of a two-piece login on the same server user data table, see HNDCLIENTSV.APP (server) and HNDCLIENTCL.APP (client).

This application is entirely template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

NOTE: This is a client server for reading and posting remote messages -- from which to both learn and with which to build forward. The back end views portions of the server are already installed and working.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDPOPFAVORITEQUERIESEXAMPLE.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDPOPFAVORITEQUERIESEXAMPLE.APP
Description: 
 This application demonstrates two CHT browse extension templates, ExplorerBrowse and HandyMarkerBrowse used in conjunction with recently introduced query templates that improve on the query management and recall aspects of CHT Query Language queries on your browses.

PopFavoriteQueries_EXPB is paired with Explorerbrowse (hence the _EXPB extension) and PopFavoriteQueries_HMB is paired with HandyMarkerBrowse (hence the _HMB extension).

These query templates, while configured identically and operating identically, place template-specific embeds intended for the target CHT browse extension that they are paired with. This makes the overall template code less complex and easier to maintain and evolve than a multi-target template like QueryParsingFilterControl.

All PopFavoriteQueries templates are CHT's response to a request at the 2012 CHT Developers' conference for improved query management and re-use in QueryParsingFilterControl.

There is a PopFavoriteQueries_QPFC template that is paired with QueryParsingFilterControl to add features to it, but in most cases it is easier and more efficient to remove QPFC from your browse and replace it with one of these, depending on which CHT browse extension you are using.

With a progress bar, users can follow the progress of a lengthy operation. A progress bar may show either an approximate percentage of completion (determinate) or indicate that an operation is ongoing (indeterminate). Microsoft usability studies have shown that users are aware of response times of over one second. Consequently, you should consider operations that take two seconds or longer to complete to be lengthy and in need of progress feedback.

Build:CHT Version Of ABC School App [V10.17.10.1892]
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryQuerying, Locating And Filtering
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDSCHOOL.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDSCHOOL.APP
Description: 
 This is a CHT demo actively being re-built with CHT templates on ABC demo application SCHOOL.APP, hence the name HNDSCHOOL.APP.

CHT developers are welcome to contribute to its eventual full incorporation of CHT templates, and to post their version of the application to our forum via the "Send Zip Files" submission button.

Its purpose is to study the use of the SQLite driver with CHT browses, and query templates set to UseSQL=True. We chose to "CHT-ify" this application specifically because it uses several SQLite data tables located in a repository file called SCHOOL.SQLITE.

A second purpose is, of course, to provide some visual and functional contast between a raw, wizard-produced, really UGLY and semi-functional, ABC application and ABC applications extended, enhanced and functionalized by a variety of CHT templates.

To analyse the allocation of templates in this application, open the application in the Clarion IDE and navigate to Global Extensions, select AACHTControlPanel and click on the menu item "Templates By Proc". This sequence of actions triggers an HTML document to display which enumerates and names all templates used in the application by procedure.

We chose to apply, as always, our "minimalist" screen design which avoids unnecessary use of tab controls, and shuns MDI child windows. Control buttons are for the most part kept to the toolbar and when placed on a window are always above the edit fields or list box.

NOTE: It appears that the SQLite driver DLL does not provide tracing either by file or by callback, so that CHT SQLTrace will not provide SQL tracing information from this app. We have a request into SV to enquire on this issue.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" is a generalized script-writing utility for all Browser Server applications built with this Clarion Handy Tools Toolkit.

Use it to create HTML/Javascript page and form scripts, Javascript Subroutines, HTML/Text email scripts and Cascading Style Sheets.

Once signed onto your server project directory this scripter will interact with your locally running server to give you real-time page previewing using live data from your server.

The "page-follow" component of this application interacts with your live, local test "browser server" to show you the "JDO" data packages sent from the server to your web page. These JDO packages appear in a tab on the scripter interface to eliminate guess work as to what the server back end views are sending (by way of data, javascript and html) to your web pages on a page-by-page basis.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" compresses all kinds of files into a structured container (.HZO) built around a Clarion .TPS file. Optional encryption is available.

CHT's WEBUPDATER installer/updater also assigns this application as the default Windows handler for .HZO files so that you can click on any .HZO file to open it and even unpack it to a target directory if the optional password is known.

A query allows you to describe the files to be containerized. Or files to be containerized may be dropped from MS Windows Explorer.

This application can be used to build standard .HZO installation and update files for transport and decontainerization by applications like CHT WEBUPDATER and CHT Demo HNDINSTALLMYFILES.APP and HNDSETUPMKR.APP to provide continuous, on-line updating of your software and data products.

A new utility application called HNDSETUPMKR.APP (intended to be cloned and customized) uses a new install-maker template to generate a custom web-installer using the .HZO containers created by this HNDSETUP.APP application.

This particular installer's security model requires no password/username. The HNDSLFSV.APP server is configured as an open type.

First, use HNDSETUP.APP to build an .HZO container with the files to be installed. Set up a server based on HNDSLFSV.APP to deliver your e-commerce web pages as well as your installation containers. An example container comes with this application for preliminary, local testing. That container is called HNDXSAINSTALLEXAMPLE.HZO.

Once you've tested this app as-is for installaation from a local copy of HNDSLFSV.APP, then use a renamed copy of this application and complete the template prompts in your version of this app to build your install following its example.

Once the template dialogs have been satisfactorily completed, compile the application (your renamed copy of this applcation) to build the installer/updater for the HZO container configured in the template.

Finally, use, HNDSETUP.APP to upload your installation containers to your website using the HTTP upload dialog built into that application.

Once the template dialogs have been satisfactorily completed, compile the application (your renamed copy of this applcation) to build the installer/updater for the HZO container configured in the template.

Since the HNDSLFSVXSA3PART.APP server uses a "Customer" file where installation privileges are established and controlled, a customer maintenance application called HNDSLFSVCUS.APP has been added to the toolkit. This server uses a "Customer" table located in an SQLITE container file named HNDSLFSV.SQLITE and the maintenance app is fix-coded to access and maintain that same custome table.

In this example installer, the "Authentication Model" switch has been set to position 4 which indicates a hard-coded authentication string consisting of 3 discrete pieces separated by commas. Hence the name of this example: HNDSETUPMKR_XSA3_HC.APP (with HC for hard-coded).

Since the HNDSLFSVXSA3PART.APP server uses a "Customer" file where installation privileges are established and controlled, a customer maintenance application called HNDSLFSVCUS.APP has been added to the toolkit. This server uses a "Customer" table located in an SQLITE container file named HNDSLFSV.SQLITE and the maintenance app is fix-coded to access and maintain that same custome table.

In this example installer, the "Authentication Model" switch has been set to position 5 which indicates a dynamic, user-configurable authentication string consisting of 3 discrete pieces separated by commas.

Hence the name of this example: HNDSETUPMKR_XSA3_LOOKUP.APP (with LOOKUP to indicate looked up in the registry configuration).

When this installer first starts, unconfigured, it pops up a dialog asking for the three-pieces of the login, in this case, emailaddress, serialnumber, lastname. This string must match entries in the server's customer table so the exact components of the login string can be determined by the developer. If enterred incorrectly the installer will re-display the login configuration dialog untill properly entered.

If the customer;s account login is changed or the account is expired, the installer will ask for the credentials to be re-entered. Otherwise, if credential information is satisfied, the install proceeds without pausing or asking for any configuraiton.

Finally, use, HNDSETUP.APP to upload your installation containers to your website using the HTTP upload dialog built into that application.

This installer has the XSA username and password hard coded (hence "HC" in the name) into the application from the template where it is entered.

A hard-coded username/password of this sort in your installer, assumes you don't need download control over specific individuals. For instance, your installer is provided to a company's IT department to update your product installation on their network. You can still turn these installers off or force them to be updated periodically by using the server config, to change the required username/password.

Other, more individually controllable, variations of this installer are possible, of course. And, in addition to this one, we have several examples in the CHT Toolkit. Search in /HNDAPPS/ for HNDSETUPMKR_XSA*.APP.

First, use HNDSETUP.APP to build an .HZO container with the files to be installed. Set up a server based on HNDSLFSVXSA.APP to deliver your e-commerce web pages as well as your installation containers.

RE: SECURITY
The username/password required by this application for access to your server, is not hard coded as in HNDSETUPMKR_XSA_HC.APP. The first time this application is run, it pops up a dialog which requires the user to enter the correct username/password combination that you have provided to them. Thereafter this dialog does not re-appear unless it fails to successfully contact your server (because perhaps you changed the required server credentials).

At that point, new access information can be provided to the user-base, or not, depending on the update privileges to which they are entitled by your update policy.

The application illustrates how to make file download requests from a Clarion application and how to send upload files to a CHT-style custom server (usually a type 4 Server).

The HNDSLFCL.APP illustrates two download functions: HTTPGetFile() and HTTPGetFileBasic() and two upload functions HTTPPutFile() and HTTPPutFileBasic(). The two "Basic" functions are silent and do not present a progress window, while standard HttpGetFile and HttpPutFile functions provide a progress window with a cancel button.

These four functions are hosted in the CHT Class HNDCLIENT and are made available in the application by a template called EmbedHTTPClientFunctions.

This application requires no .DCT (Clarion Dictionary).

Description: 
 This application demonstrates primarily, the use of two Clarion Handy Tools Templates called EmbedBrowserServer and BrowserServerInitializationControls.

These extension/control templates provide TCP/IP connectivity with a browser or with a Clarion client application using HNDHttp or HNDClient classes. In this particular example, application functionality has been limited to acting as a static page browser server and providing two example UCR$ (User Custom Request) procedure calls that may be called from client applications HNDHTGT.APP or HNDSLFCL.APP.

This application is entirely template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

NOTE: This is a starting-point server from which to build forward. It proceeds to the point of delivering static HTML/JS/CSS pages. Many "extra" operations and features are ready to be grafted in by the developer.

To study servers derived from this one to become more advanced Page AND Installation servers, see HNDSLFSVXSA.APP and HNDSLFSVXSA3PART.APP.

This server requires no Clarion .DCT.

This server and its client HNDSLFCL.APP include some explanatory video available from our CHT Video Education Page.

Templates:Templates In Application HNDSLFSVXMLDATASVR.APP
Description: 
 This application demonstrates TCP/IP connectivity with a browser or with a Clarion client application using HNDHttp or HNDClient classes.

In this particular example, application functionality has been limited to acting as a dynamic data, page server and providing several example UCR$ (User Custom Request) procedure calls that may be called from an HTML web link.

This server was branched from HNDSLFSV.APP in Sept 2017 to demonstrate building dynamic-data web pages based on CHT XML2HTMLGEN techniques. Take note that it has had it's default base page changed from INDEX.HTML to UCRBROWSES.HTML in order to simplify testing and navigating to the UCR$ functions test page.

It utilizes a function called AutoGenHTMLFromXML_VER02 exported from HNDXML2HTMLGEN.APP to convert standard CHT XML template files into HTML. This is the same functionality that triggers an HTML file to be generated from CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE when the F5 key is pushed.

Calling any one of this server's specialized UCR$ functions, triggers the return of a dynamic data page based on one of CHT's .XML page templates.

One example, UCR$=NEWSLINKSLISTCOLUMNLABELS.UCR& calls a function in this server called NewsLinksListColumnLabels() which processes an XML template file called 000newslinkslist.xml.

Another example, UCR$=NEWSLINKSLISTNOCOLUMNLABELS.UCR& calls a function in this server called NewsLinksListNoColumnLabels() which processes the same XML template file called 000newslinkslist.xml, this time with slightly different data formatting inserted by the procedure.

Data rows inserted into 000newslinkslist.xml before processing to "newslinkslist.html" are read from an HNDSLFSVCUS.SQLITE table called "NEWSLINKSLIST".

Other similar UCR$ procedures will be available for further study, as we expand this demonstration data server in upcoming releases.

Because this project and a number of related applications, data tables and XML templates will be in continuous flux for some time, after Sept 2017, we've built two standalone "Weeklies" installers called CHTWEEKLIES_1.EXE and CHTWEEKLIES_2.EXE which can be picked up from our CHT Subscribers Secure Download area at any time after OCT 1, 2017.

These installers will provide the most up-to-date versions of these components (of which this application is one) for you to study.

Name:HNDSLFSVXSA.APP
Build:CHT XSA Installation Server [V10.17.10.0065]
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryInternet - HTTP Servers
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDSLFSVXSA.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDSLFSVXSA.APP
Description: 
 This application consists of a Type-4 CHT static page server that has been XSA security enhanced for installation container delivery.

This uses a server-side configured 2-part username password setup (standard XSA) using CHT's HNDCONFIG class. Any client requesting an .HZO installation container is forced, via server function GetGetFileApproval() to present the correct username/password string.

The installation clients accessing this server must have pre-knowledge of the server's currently configured username/password in order to obtain installation containers. This username/password information is not exchanged between the server and the client or vice versa. The installation client either knows the login information ahead of time, and gains access or it is prohibited from obtaining installation containers.

This application is primarily template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

This server and its example client installer HNDSLFSVXSAINSTALL.APP, an XSA installer, in combination with CHT's container builder app, HNDSETUP.APP combine to form a very flexible and secure, across-the-web, software, and/or document delivery system to Windows-based computers.

Templates:Templates In Application HNDSLFSVXSA3PART.APP
Description: 
 This application consists of a Type-4 CHT static page server that has been XSA security enhanced for installation container delivery.

This uses a server-side configured 2-part username password setup (standard XSA) as well as a 3-part email,loginid,username setup (XSA-3) looked up in a user (customer, subscriber) file.

Which of these two security systems is applied by the server depends on the authorization header applied to a file request by the CHT XSA client application.

This application uses a dictionary that defines an SQLite "Customer" file containing customer status information which can depending on status field contants allow or disallow an installation call from the customer's installation client.

This application is primarily template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code.

This server and its example client installer HNDSLFSVXSAINSTALL3PART.APP, an XSA-3 installer, in combination with CHT's container builder app, HNDSETUP.APP combine to form a very flexible and secure, across-the-web, software, and/or document delivery system to Windows-based computers.

This server also utilizes a user/customer maintenance application called HNDSLFSVCUS.APP which it calls via RUN() under the "Customer Maintenance Utility" menu. The path to this executable may need to be adjusted in the embed area where it is called. The customer maintenance app shares the HNDSLFSV.DCT with this server application.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" builds an across-the-web installer for your e-commerce business in co-operation with HNDSETUP.APP (.HZO Maker) and a type 4, CHT-XSA style server, HNDSLFSVXSA.APP to securely deliver installation containers.

First, use HNDSETUP.APP to build an .HZO container with the files to be installed. Set up a server based on HNDSLFSVXSA.APP to deliver your e-commerce web pages as well as your installation containers.

Then use a renamed copy of this application and complete the template prompts in your version of this app to build your install following its example.

Once the template dialogs have been satisfactorily completed, compile the application (your renamed copy of this applcation) to build the installer/updater for the HZO container configured in the template.

Finally, use, HNDSETUP.APP to upload your installation containers to your website using the HTTP upload dialog built into that application.

Description: 
 This application demonstrates CHT Class called HNDNetSMTP which sends email utilizing a DLL built with Microsoft's .NET C# compiler. The DLL is interfaced to Clarion using "COM Interop" a COM interface exposed by the .NET DLL.

The email template in use is called EMBEDNETSMTPCLASSES. The CHT Class used by this template is the HNDNETSMTPCLASS located in files HNDNETSMTP.INC and HNDNETSMTP.CLW.

This application and the HNDNetSMTP class, while doing some practical work, serve the primary purpose of allowing developers to explore the implications of using actual .NET DLLs in their Clarion applications. The operating system environment on which this application runs, must have at least Microsoft Framework 2 installed.

The technique of using "COM Interop" to DLLs created with a .NET compiler such as C#.NET, VB.NET or Clarion.NET provide a wealth of opportunity to expand the capabilities of CHT and consequently the capabilites of Win32 Clarions. We'd appreciate your feedback in testing this simple application in your development environments.

This application now includes procedure(s) using the template CHTBestPracticeEmbedClass as an example for developers.

Description: 
 This application demonstrates a control template called HandySpellCheckConrtrol, a template that brings low-overhead, multi-language spell-checking to your applications.

It drops a single "Spell Check" button onto your window to trigger spell-checking in entry and text controls populated on the procedure window. Checking can be triggered for the entire window using the button provided or individual controls can be checked using a configurable hot key.

Further, individual words may be checked by selecting the word and using a configurable hot key. Initially we are providing, on request, lexicons for the following languages: English, Afrikaans, Croatian, French, German, Greek, Italian, Netherlands, Portugese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukranian.

Since these lexicons are derived from open-source word lists, we will ask developers seeking non-English dictionaries to help us develop a common-words list for their chosen language. A common-words list is a set of the top 25-50 most commonly used words. In English, for example, these are words like "the", "and", "to", and so forth.

As of CHT build 112A1.01 CHT spell checking has been taken out of BETA and placed into RELEASE status. Four dictionaries are presently available: English, French, Afrikaans, and Portugese. Aside from English, we chose to release these languages first because developers contacted us and specifically encouraged us to do so.

If you speak and work in any of the above listed, but not-yet-implemented langauges, feel free to contact us and encourage us to give priority to your language in an upcoming build.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Click the "Read Next" button to view the most recent SQL activity raised by your application. Repeat as necessary.

Automatic tracing:
Check the "Auto Trace" switch. A window timer will periodically refresh to the latest SQL select or group of selects issued by your application.

File Trace or Direct Trace:
These modes are mutually exclusive.

File trace is performed by communicating with SQL trace information issued by Clarion's file drivers into a text file. In "File Trace" mode a developer can trace any and all SQL select outputs from various browses in an application as long as HNDSQLTRACE.EXE is started and configured before starting the application.

"Direct Trace" mode is performed by low-level communication, usually from a specific procedure under scrutiny. This mode requires one of CHT's browse templates to be configured to issue trace information during interaction with the user.

This application includes the template CHTBestPracticeEmbedClass as an example for developers to study.

NOTE: As of November 1, 2015, and C10 Version 11975 file trace configuration information is now stored in "DRIVERS.INI" located at CSIDL_APPDATA\SoftVelocity\Clarion\CLARION_VERSION\.
In all earlier versions of clarion, file trace configuration information was located in long obsolete, win.ini.

Description: 
 This application is intended as a starting point for developers to build file transfer servers of various sorts that act like FTP servers but utilize the HTTP protocol including encryption and compression.

Several demo client applications are provided to subscribers: HNDFLCLN.APP, HNDLIVUP.APP and HNDFILCL.APP. Another client application called HNDHTGT.APP illustrates making on-the-fly file requests from this server using the HNDHTTP and HNDHTTPClient classes.

The server maintains complete control of which files and directories are visible to the client. File transfers are optionally compressed and/or encrypted at the request of the client application.

This application is entirely template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code. It is based on a dictionary called HNDFILSV.DCT.

NOTE: This is a starting-point server from which to build forward. The "file transfer" portion of the server is already installed.

Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application" is designed to be used as CHT's official media player (variation 2). It streams .MP4 versions of CHT Educational Videos from our CHT Video Server.

The player is built on CHT Template HandyComMediaControl which uses the Windows Media Player COM object based in WMP.DLL.

The player is capable of playing off-line any videos which have been previously viewed to completion. On-line viewing of uncached videos begins quickly, once approximately 5 percent of the video has downloaded, and already-cached videos begin immediately since they are not downloaded again.

If you plan to adapt this application to act as a video player for your own videos, a useful, accompanying application called HNDBUILDVIDEOLIST.APP can build video index files on your CHT-based video server, of the type utilized by this application and by the HNDWindowsMediaPlayer class (HNDWMP.INC, HNDWMP,CLW, HNDWMP.TLB).

At the same time the application also serves as a model for developers wishing to build their own streaming video players.

By way of example, we will present a variety of science and music videos that reflect our interests. The chief advantage of using a private video player rather than running the standard Windows media player is that this one does not reveal the location of videos and can act as a private video player or even an in-home player hooked to a private in-home video server.

The player is built on CHT Template HandyComMediaControl which uses the Windows Media Player COM object based in WMP.DLL.

The player is capable of playing off-line any videos which have been previously viewed to completion. On-line viewing of uncached videos begins quickly, once approximately 5 percent of the video has downloaded, and already-cached videos begin immediately since they are not downloaded again.

Description: 
 This application illustrates how to use a CHT template called HandyCOMWindowsScriptHostControl. It incorporates a COM class wrapper for the MS Windows Script Host Object located in WSHOM.OCX.

Windows Script Host provides a wide variety of low-level operating system configuration functions normally enabled in WScript, JScript and VBScript. Microsoft describes Windows Script Host as follows: "Windows Script Host (WSH), a feature of the Microsoft Window 2000/XP family of operating systems, is a powerful multi-language scripting environment ideal for automating system administration tasks.

Scripts running in the WSH environment can leverage the power of WSH objects and other COM-based technologies that support Automation, such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI), to manage the Windows subsystems that are central to many system administration tasks."

This template and its underlying wrapper class, HNDScriptHostClass based in modules HNDWSHOM.INC /HNDWSHOM.CLW /HNDWSHOM.TLB provide you the equivalent of running windows administration scripts from inside your Clarion application, using Clarion syntax rather than writing WScript, JScript or VBScript.

Name:HNDWINDOWSSHELLDEMO.APP
Build:CHT Windows Shell Demo [V10.17.10.0179]
Date:10/23/2017
CategoryExtended Controls - Shell
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDWINDOWSSHELLDEMO.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDWINDOWSSHELLDEMO.APP
Description: 
 This application illustrates how to use a CHT template called HandyCOMWindowsScriptHostControl. It incorporates a COM class wrapper for the MS Windows Script Host Object located in WSHOM.OCX.

Windows Script Host provides a wide variety of low-level operating system configuration functions normally enabled in WScript, JScript and VBScript. Microsoft describes Windows Script Host as follows: "Windows Script Host (WSH), a feature of the Microsoft Windows 2000/XP family of operating systems, is a powerful multi-language scripting environment ideal for automating system administration tasks. Scripts running in the WSH environment can leverage the power of WSH objects and other COM-based technologies that support Automation, such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI), to manage the Windows subsystems that are central to many system administration tasks."

This template and its underlying wrapper class, HNDScriptHostClass based in modules HNDWSHOM.INC /HNDWSHOM.CLW /HNDWSHOM.TLB provide you the equivalent of running windows administration scripts from inside your Clarion application, using Clarion syntax rather than writing WScript, JScript or VBScript.

Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDXML2HTMLGEN.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDXML2HTMLGEN.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Batch Bot" application runs from various other CHT Batch-Bots and Snap-Ins in order to generate user-embedded XML template files into stand-alone HTML pages and forms.

It may also be run directly from a DOS batch file or developer application implementing XML to HTML processing.

CHT Snap-Edit now calls this HTML generator exclusively to transform XML template files into HTML before previewing.

This generator implementation can access and call remote procedures established in a CHT client data server to request data packages which are then merged into the HTML document. Several example XML templates have been provided to illustrate insertion of remote data from a CHT server by UCR (user custom request): 000CHTRECEIPTBLUE.XML, 000CHTRECEIPTBLACK.XM, 000CHTUPDATERENEWALLETTER.XML.

A document is in preparation which will explain in detail the structuring of various interchangeable XML template designs with which this generator-application will operate to create HTML. For example, mail-merge letters, static web pages, interactive web forms, tile menus and more.

GENERATING:

--input
    [REQ] name of the XML input template file
--output
    [OPT] name of the HTML output template file

--prevw [OPT] preview HTML after generate

--noprevw [OPT] no preview HTML after generate

CONFIGURE DATA SERVER:
--config
    [OPT] configure remote data server for secure access

HELP:
--help
    [CFG] Pops up a splash help screen
--update
    [CFG] Self-update HNDMAILCDO.EXE to the latest version.
    Utilizes CHTSNAPGET.EXE if / when unvoked.
--video
    [OPT] Displays a video or document from the web that
    further explains use of this application.

CategoryFile And Memory Compression
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDZDEMO.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDZDEMO.APP
Description: 
 This application uses the generic template EmbedDiskFunctions to attach a class called HNDDISK to your application procedures. The application illustrates the use of two HNDDISK functions:
OBJ.BulkShrinkFiles()
OBJ.BulkGrowFiles()

The proprietary CHT compression library is used by some of the functions in HNDDisk for file compression and decompression. The compression library is run-time loaded, so that your app will run whether this DLL library is present or not.

An application-global template called IncludeCompressionLibrary is available for you to attach to your application if you plan on using CHT compression. It will remind you in the standard ship (.SHP) list to include HNDZLIBX.DLL. If your application uses the HNDDISK class but does not call any of the compression methods, it's not necessary to include the compression library with your final application.

Build:Handy Zip`N Post To 2-Part XSA Server [V10.17.10.0101]

CategoryZIP-N-POST HTTP XSA-CLIENT
Classes: Classes By Procedure In HNDZIPNPOSTTOCHTXSA.APP
Templates:Templates In Application HNDZIPNPOSTTOCHTXSA.APP
Description: 
 This "CHT Utility Application", combines CHT's zip file creation capabilities using HNDNETZIPPER.DLL and HNDNETZIPPER source classes, along with CHT's wide-ranging HTTP powers to provide a "Handy" utility that assists with backups to any 2-Part CHT XSA File Server like HNDSLFSVXSA.APP and others.

The application can be pre-configured to 20 different settings to back up a variety of directories using a CHT File Query that describes the files to be backed up. Each setting results in a standard zip file that can optionally include source subdirectories right inside the zip. Moving from one configuration to the next requires only one button click.

The HTTP configuration dialog also lets you preconfigure the target CHT file server designated to accept your zip file(s).

Note that as of May 2017 this application utilizes CHT-XSA authentication, so that you can authenticate against any CHT Server which has been provided with a CHT-XSA configuration dialog.

Once configured, your application can build a backup with one button click and PUT it to a CHT-Style secure XSA web server with a second click.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
