OpenInsight 10 has been officially released, and we are pleased to share with you that both SRP Utilities and SRP ActiveX Controls are available for the new 64-bit-only OpenInsight platform.
Welcome to volume 1 of a new blog series. SRP Tech Bites will be different from our normal tutorial oriented articles since it will provide readers with several smaller nuggets of potentially useful information. While these juicy morsels will mostly be oriented toward OpenInsight, we will expand your palette by including useful information from a wider range of technology topics. With the release of this inaugural edition of SRP Tech Bites, we extend an invitation to all of our readers to contribute their own delicacies. So don’t be shy…we are happy to share the limelight. Until next time, please enjoy a sampling from today’s menu…
We recently announced that we were quite busy porting our products to run in the OpenInsight 10 64-bit platform. For various reasons, it made sense for us to start working on SRP Utilities rather than any of our visual (i.e., ActiveX) products. At this time we are pleased to announce the general availability of SRP Utilities 2.0 for beta testing.
In case you missed it, 2017 has come and gone. We ended one of our busiest years on record and our workload does not appear to be slowing down. Our adventures involved several interesting projects, but the most fascinating commonality among them was the high demand for integration work. Three major enterprise clients introduced requirements to connect OpenInsight to SQL databases. Other projects had us building bridges to Microsoft Office applications via OLE Automation, writing interfaces to ESRI GIS solutions, and increased work with web services (much of this will be shared through upcoming blog articles). We are eagerly anticipating the journey ahead in 2018. To help you share in our excitement, we would like to provide a preview of various exciting developments within the company and within our labs.
The standard multi-user deployment practice for OpenInsight involves executing OINSIGHT.exe across the network from a shared network folder. By default Windows distrusts network folder locations that haven’t been previously trusted and can’t be detected as part of the local intranet. This results in Windows displaying the Open File – Security Warning before launching the program.
In this article we’ll cover 3 methods to prevent the Open File – Security Warning by configuring Windows to trust the shared OpenInsight network location.
We are proud to announce our latest addition to the SRP ActiveX Control suite: the SRP Calendar Control. This control brings an Outlook-style calendar to your OpenInsight applications and was released as beta with version 4.0.3 of SRPControls.ocx, which means you can try it out now. This article will give you a brief overview of how to get the control up and running in your application.
In Part 1 of this article, we reviewed the types of error conditions that can occur in web APIs and the basic methods available for handing these situations. As previously noted, developers are not confined to handling errors in only one manner. In this article we’ll look at the advantages of each error handler and propose a few standard configurations for common situations. Developers can then use and adapt a configuration that best serves their needs.
