Well the holiday season is
just about over but we couldn't let it
pass us by without reaching out and
thanking all our clients for their
continued support and wishing them all
the best for 2010.
holiday gift for you...
the time for giving so we decided to give
you a little something special to add to
your application over the holiday season.
How about adding spell checking to all
your Nomads input controls?
all Linux systems come with 'aspell' so
adding spell checking can be done in less
time that it takes to open the presents
under most trees.
need to do is define the following global
= "|aspell -a --lang=@@"
%SPELL_POPUP$ = "&Spell
%SPELL_MIN_LEN = 1
Presto; you now have
spell checking on all your Nomads input
you server happens to be Windows, you
will need a bit more time as you'll need
to download and install aspell from http://aspell.net/win32 -- so perhaps you
should pour yourself a glass of eggnog
while you wait. Once it is installed just
change the global variables above so that
when you arrive back at work after the
holidays, you can spread the word about
the magic of Xmas.

PDFa-1b - The
standard for documents
use of PDF documents is pretty standard
nowadays, it is important to remember
that not all PDF files are created equal.
Most PDF creation tools can create
portable files; however, if you want to
create documents that adhere to the
international standard (ISO-19005-1),
look no further than PxPlus.
release of 8.30, PxPlus provides native
generation of PDFA-1b compatible
documents that adhere to the ISO standards as required
by a number of governments and agencies
for document archiving. These PDF files
are designed to be completely free
standing and do not rely on any fonts
pre-existing on the target system. In
addition, they contain additional
information regarding the format,
security and rendering instructions.
compatibility is what you need, then the
PxPlus 8.30 PDF is for you.
is coming with a number of new exciting
PxPlus features such as:
version control (SVN) interface.
... watch for the
announcement in the coming weeks
rid of what bugs you
Ever wanted to
know what's going on with a ProvideX
process that is running either in
background or attached to another
terminal? PxPlus has built-in debugging
interfaces that allow you to attach to
and inspect running tasks. For Graphical
users, the Integrated Toolkit provides
this, but recently we added a text mode
debugger that brings this technology to a
text mode debugger is simply a matter of
entering the command DBG. From there, you
can connect to any running task to see
what is going on and/or take control.
See http://manual.pvxplus.com/page/commands/dbg.htm for more details.
iNomads? No problem there is also a web
based interface the online debugging
allowing you to debug from a browser.
the holiday season everybody needs help
around the house. Well there are a number
of features in PxPlus that can help. Not
with the actual cleaning, of course, but
with housekeeping chores in your
it be nice to have the system tie a piece
of logic to the closing of a file,
removal of a window or control, or just
to the termination of the current
items (controls, files, windows,
programs, or other objects) by using the
'FOR' option when creating objects gives
you this capability. So next time you
need to close or erase a file when a
program exits, just create an object that
performs the task on object deletion and,
using the FOR option, tie the object to
course, like any good housekeeping
service, we make this even simpler for
you with our *plus/obj/wrapup object.

holidays we got a Nintendo Wii console
for the family. I got to admit that
its a lot of fun and we have been
having a blast, but better yet it runs iNomads!!! It
should. After all, the browser that comes
with the Wii is based on Opera.
interface has a low resolution, but the
interface with the remote control wands
could be used to easily provide a point
& shoot style interface to your
time you pick up your Wii controller,
just tell everyone you're working. And if
you don't have one, convince your company
to buy you one; just tell them you need
to checkout your Nomads based application
-- we're sure
your boss will understand.
know, you can develop, test and
support iNomads applications on a
professional PxPlus license?
additional license is required.
