19A.02.00 Build Update For Clarion 10 BETA

As of 9:00 AM EST, February 28, 2015, we've posted a CHT Webupdater Installer for Clarion 10 BETA. The CHT Version is Build 19A.02.00 the same version already available for Clarion 9.1 and Clarion 9.

Active CHT subscribers can pick this up any time at: http://www.cwhandy.ca/LOG$. Please enter your registered CHT credentials including your CHT serial number. The Clarion 10 Webupdater works exactly the same as earlier version CHT Webupdaters so there should be no learning curve.

This is a complete CHT install in all respects except one. The demo application set in this BETA Clarion 10 install, includes only about 30 applications out of our entire demo suite of more than 180 applications and utiliities. The remaining applications will be added back into the Clarion 10 install as we complete a relevance review of these in light of the latest Clarion 10 native feature set.

Clarion 10, so far looks like a real keeper!

Introducing CHTSNAPGET.EXE!

We're testing a new CHT "Snap-In" called CHTSNAPGET.EXE which is a stand-alone HTTP downloader.

From any standard website that can be reached with a browser and which does not require a password, this C# executable can download a file and place it into a target directory or simply drop it into the current directory where CHTSNAPGET.EXE is running.

This is a command-line app like all other CHTSNAPXXX.EXE components. That means you can run it from the DOS prompt as we're doing in the first video below, or you can run it from a DOS batch file script (second video), or you can run it from inside your Clarion application (third video).

Video Testing CHTSNAPGET.EXE from the DOS command line:

These are the latest instructions after user feedback:
** CHTSNAPGET.EXE ** (The Clarion Handy Tools Page - www.cwhandy.ca)
-- Three Arguments Are Required: "URL" "FILENAME" ["TARGET DIR"]
-- Arguments with spaces or extended characters must be surrounded by double quotes.
-- Otherwise, arguments may be provided without surrounding double quotes.
-- Individual arguments must be separated by one or more spaces.
-- TARGET DIR is optional. The downloaded file is directed into this directory.
-- When TARGET DIR is stated it MUST exist or URL processing is stopped.
-- When TARGET DIR is omitted, the CHTSNAPGET.EXE run directory is substituted.
-- URL may include subdirectories(s), for example: http://www.cwhandy.com/subdir1/.
-- FILENAME should be the raw name, no path, for example: chtsnapget.pdf
-- Wild card FILENAMES are not permitted. If found, URL processing is stopped.
** CHTSNAPGET.EXE ** Version: 15.02.13.00 **

The latest, but still-in-testing version of CHTSNAPGET.EXE can be obtained from the link below. Just click this link to pick up a CHTSNAPGET.ZIP if you'd like to give it a test.

Pick UP CHTSNAPGET.ZIP

Enjoy!

Have You Tried CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE Yet?

We've been using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE almost full-time over the last couple of months to write various documents and to edit frequently-changing static pages in our website -- the one you're reading right now.

Here's what editing HTML looks like:

In the past we've always created our static pages using the Clarion editor, so the effect of using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE is a natural evolution.

It's certainly a lot more light-weight than the Clarion editor so we can easily work on multiple documents and preview them as we work directly from the editor.

We've set up a folder on the office desktop with links to frequently edited documents.

When we click on any one of these links pictured above, the document to which it points opens on the server (a network drive) and we can immediately begin to edit. We've added hot keys for frequently used HTML tags so that we can add these with a single keystroke.

Give it a try some time. It is used in these CHT demo/utility apps:

HNDTESTCHTSNAPTOOLS.APP (C91 HNDAPPS Only)

HNDCLXHTC9.APP (C91 HNDAPPS Only)
