CHT Email Templates

As of Build 19C.00.00 to be released for C10 on June 30, 2015 here is a list of email templates and jumpstarts available to developers.

We've modified the CHTTEMPLATES.HTML document file by narrowing down the template category for email (of any type) to simply the words: EMAIL TEMPLATE. This categorizes any and all email templates together into one group.

If you then click on the link created (on the left) by the template name you can read the full description of this template (and which type of email it provides) in the template descriptions section.

The following image shows a snapshot of the CHT EMAIL TEMPLATES section of the above linked document.

You can find the above pictured section in this CHTTEMPLATES.HTML document by clicking the link, and when the document appears, use the hot key CTRLF to bring up a browser search dialog. Enter here the words EMAIL TEMPLATE, and you'll be taken directly to the correct location in the document index. From there, as indicated above, you can click on any template name to see its description.

Take note in particular of template "EmbedSMTPFunctions" because the HNDSMTP class underlying this template as been changed considerably as described in the documentation provided.

CHT Email Examples

As of Build 19C.00.00 to be released for C10 on June 30, 2015 here is a list of email example applications, Batch Bots and Utilities available to CHT developers.

We've modified the CHTAPPLICATIONS.HTML document file by narrowing down the application category for email (of any type) to simply the words: EMAIL EXAMPLE.

This categorizes most email demo and utility apps together into a few groups.

If you then click on the link created (on the left) by the template name you can read the full description of any application (and which type of email it provides an example for) in the application descriptions section.

The following image shows a snapshot of the CHT EMAIL EXAMPLES section of the above linked document:

You can find the above pictured section in this CHTAPPLICATIONS.HTML document by clicking the above link, and when the document appears, use the hot key CTRLF to bring up a browser search dialog. Enter here the words EMAIL EXAMPLE, and you'll be taken directly to the correct location in the document index.

From there, as indicated above, you can click on any application name to see its description.

Take note in particular of the "HNDZIPNXXXX" group of applications because these individually provide a working, commercially viable, example of six different approaches to email and file sending using CHT templates and classes.

Clarion 10 Goes Gold!

We received Clarion 10 Gold today, and have renewed our CSP for the new subscription period, which extends until Clarion 11 goes gold.

We do extensive testing with each new CHT Build, major or minor, but now that we've reached C10 Gold Release, we'll do some double duty on re-testing all 190 demo apps over the coming weeks. The demo apps include pretty much every CHT Template, CHT class, Snap-In component and Batch-Bot component in the tool kit so we get considerable feedback from a batch recompile of the toolkit demos.

The rest of you on a Clarion CSP will by now, or probably in the next few days be receiving your Clarion 10 Gold.

At this stage we think it's probably time to retire and "freeze" Clarion 9 at 19B.00.00 as of today.

We will continue to keep Clarion 9.1 up to date with CHT changes and updates coming forward with Clarion 10 for at least the next 6 months. At which time we will poll CHT users if there is any further need to keep 9.1 up with Clarion 10, beyond say, December 31, 2015.

19B.01.00 Build Update For Clarion 9.1

The latest build update, 19B.01.00, for Clarion 9.1 has now been posted to our update server. The C10 version of this build was posted last week in case you missed the announcement.

Please check out the new CHT Code Signing Utility (HNDCODESIGN.APP) changes by viewing two new videos available from our video page.

Also check out and run the pre-compiled version of HNDSETUPMKR.APP located in /accessory/hnd/. This is a sample across-the-web-installer that can be renamed and easily modified via template prompt changes on GenerateHNDSetupMkrInstallDetails to become your own installer.

Build an installation container with HNDSETUP.APP, upload it to an SSL-protected web directory (again with HNDSETUP.APP) then build your installer by working forward from a copy of HNDSETUPMKR.APP. Once you do this a couple of times you will be building ready to run, across-the-web installers in 15-20 minutes.

As of this build, HNDSETUPMKR.APP will also, optionally, install your self-built, self-signed code-signing certificate when it installs your application. Build your free code-siging certificate with HNDCODESIGN.APP. Code-sign your application at compile time by adding CHT template HandyCodeSigningExtension. Then incorporate the .CER (certificate) file in your installation container along with the .EXE and any required DLLs.
