DATE:6/21/2024
CATEGORY:BATCH BOT
CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDCLARIONDRIVE.EXE may be used by CHT Clarion developers to configure their system to properly establish the current, in-use Clarion 9.1, Clarion 10, Clarion 11, or Clarion 11.1 installation.

While your system may have multiple same-version Clarions installed at different paths and/or on different drives, only ONE of any given Clarion version may be the currently-in-use clarion installation for that version.

This utility tracks where your various Clarion installations are installed and configures the correct registry settings any instance of a given Clarion version requires to run successfully.

To set to any Clarion version before running it, open this app and select "Clarion 9.1", "Clarion 10", "Clarion 11" or "Clarion 11.1" from the main window.

Then, from the pop-up menu choose "INFO" to determine where the currently active instance of that Clarion version is located.

If you have more than one installation of that Clarion version, you can configure the registry by choosing "SET" to that version's installation directory.

DESCRIPTION:

This is an CHT demo actively re-built with CHT templates on ABC demo application SCHOOL.APP; hence the name HNDSCHOOL.APP.

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.

This application applies, for the most part, CHT's browse extension template HandyMarkerBrowse (HMB); hence comes the name of the application. However, one procedure utilizes ListBoxBrowseExtender (LBX) which illustrates that an underlying ABC browse is no longer necessary to build fantastic Clarion browses. LBX browses are the bright future of data browsing with Clarion, ABC browses are the clunky past.

DESCRIPTION:

This is a CHT demo built with CHT templates and is roughly based on an SV demo application called SCHOOL.APP. It experiments specifically with the School-Classes table located in HNDSCHOOL.SQLITE. The SQLite Data tables are imported from the original TOPSPEED files provided with SV's SCHOOL.APP.

It uses the SQLite driver, the ABC browse template, CHT's EXPB browse extension, set to UseSQL=True and CHT's QPFC query template.

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".

CATEGORY:BROWSES LBX
CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This application demonstrates primarily a record-marking template, that assists in marking records using ordinary Clarion list boxes.

That template is called ListBoxBrowseExtender or "LBX" for short.

Some Features Illustrated In This Application:
* ListBoxBrowseExtender Has Green Bar.
* LBX has multiple Query Control templates
* Use ORDER BY In Query For Mult-Column Sort.
* LBX Honours Retain-Record.
* LBX Generates Data Queue
* LBX connects update forms
* LBX has queue auto-fill on startup
* LBX has pre-filter to limit auto-fill on startup
* LBX has fill-queue methods for local or remote data

Six example procedures illustate some powerful LBX features;

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_1_ListBoxBrowseExtenderInQueueQuery()
This procedure illustrates a query template called InQueueQueryControl_LBX. This control filters the records already in the list box queue, into a secondary queue called "the shadow queue" and displays the result in the same browse. Clearing this filter resets to the starting or "Main" queue and displays the original record set. All of this except the original fill-queue happens without ANY further file access being needed.

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_2_ListBoxBrowseExtenderSortOrderFieldFilter()
This procedure illustrates a template called SortOrderFieldFilter_LBX. This control requires the user to enter only a string of characters to match something contained in the sort-order field. As above, matching data are inserted into the shadow queue and are displayed in the same browse. As above, also, clearing this filter resets to and displays the "Main" queue record set.

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_3_ListBoxBrowseExtenderUniversalQueryControl()
This procedure illustrates a template called UniversalQueryControl_LBX. This control when empty fills the queue with all table/view records unless a pre-filter is added to the template config. Click the "Queue Data" button to switch to the "Shadow Queue" and enter a query. These records are filtered from the Main queue into the Shadow queue. Click back on the "Queue Data" button and the browse switches back to the Main queue with all original records intact.

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_4_ListBoxBrowseExtenderPopFavoriteQueries()
This procedure populates a template called PopFavoriteQueries_LBX. This control opens a table called PreQueries and scans it for queries designated for the view name defined on the template. Queries may be optionally added, or deleted at run time and can be selected from a popup menu. The PreQueries table is defined in HNDO.DCT from which it can be imported into your own dictionary. Prequeries may be ISAM or SQL as required by your application.

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_5_ListBoxBrowseExtenderConditionalIconsOneColumn()
This procedure populates a template called UniversalQueryControl_LBX as above, but its purpose is primarily to illustrate conditional icons. These are icons on a column or columns which change based on some conditional expression related to the data in that column. In this case columns beginning with A, B, C and D are assigned icons 1, 2, 3, and 4. To see the effect of this, set the "Max Pre-Load" value to at least 1000 and click the NAME column to sort from smallest to largest.

* PROCEDURE:
LBX_6_ListBoxBrowseExtenderConditionalIconsTwoColumns()
This procedure populates a template called UniversalQueryControl_LBX as above, but its purpose is primarily to illustrate conditional icons. These are icons on a column or columns which change based on some conditional expression related to the data in that column. To see the effect, set the "Max Pre-Load" value to at least 1000 and click the SSN or NAME columns to sort from smallest to largest.

*** PROCEDURE: LBXWithUniversalQueryControl()
The browse queue is loaded without pre-filter initially from the data table. The query control provides for entry of CHT queries which will re-fill the "Main" queue with a new subset of data directly from the data table while "Main Queue Data" is displayed. Click over to the "Shadow Queue Data" and CHT queries in the query control will display subsets of the "Main" data queue without data table access being excercised. Clearing the Main Queue Data query control reloads the Main queue from the data table.

*** PROCEDURE: LBXWithInQueueQueryTemplate()
The browse queue is loaded without pre-filter initially from the data table. The query control provides for entry of a CHT query string. Records matching the query string are inserted into the "Shadow" queue which is then displayed. "Main" queue records remain undisturbed. Clearing the query empties the shadow queue and re-displays the Main queue. No file access is required after the initial data load from the data tables. A reset from file button, reloads the main queue from the data tables.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application" HNDHTML2PDF.EXE may be used to convert well-formed HTML into user-interactive PDF documents.

Four versions of the executable are provided, one each with C9.1, C10, C11 and C11.1, located in the \accessory\bin\ directory. The source application is also provided in CHT's \hndapps\ directory.

HOW TO USE THIS UTILITY:
Configure an "HTML Source Directory" and a "PDF Target Directory". The HTML file pickup location is determined by the "Source" value and the PDF creation location is determined by the "Target" value.

Next, select the .HTM or .HTML file names that you want to convert to PDF documents. These file names are then stored in the HNDHTML2PDF.TPS file along with a complete path, and a TIME, DATE and SIZE stamp. Since the file names and dates are stored, the date-time-size stamp on these files remains static. However, a double click on any file name forces an refresh of the DATE, TIME, SIZE information provided for any file.

Using the multi-select feature of the CHT LBX browse on the conversion dialog window, highlight the file or files that should be processed into .PDF's.

Click the PDF button on the window toolbar to begin PDF creation. Files with the same names and a .PDF extension are created in the "PDF Target Directory".

CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application" HNDTPLREGISTRY.EXE, is used to register a set of user-selected templates to the Clarion IDE.

Four versions of the executable are provided, one each with C9.1, C10, C11 and C11.1, located in the \accessory\bin\ directory. The source application is also provided in the \hndapps\ directory. Each HNDTPLREGISTRY.EXE version addresses directly, and only, the Clarion template registry of the Clarion version with which it was compiled.

TO USE THIS UTILITY:
First, select all the .TPL file names that you want to register from \templates\win\ and from \accessory\template\win\ into the application browse. These file names are stored in the HNDTPLREGISTRY.TPS file under the application directory. You only need to do this first step once, unless extra templates not already selected and stored are required.

Next, close the Clarion IDE version being addressed if it is running, as the application will refuse to register templates if it detects that Clarion version is still running.

Next, select the templates you wish registered using the CHT LBX browse record selection method. Browse record selection works as in any CHT HandyMarkerBrowse or CHT ListBoxBrowseExtender browse.

Finally, click the "Register" button on the toolbar. The application confirms with you, that the Clarion IDE being targeted is NOT running. Once confirmed, it renames the current \template\win\clarionregistryXX.trf and registers the templates selected in the application browse.

Note 1: ABCHAIN.TPL is automatically registered first, before any other selected templates. This is the master ABC template on which many other sets depend. If it is selected in the .TPL list, no harm done.

Note 2: This application creates a brand new clarion .TRF file with only the selected templates and ABCHAIN.TPL. In other words, a brand new .TRF is created, not a revised version of the existing one.

This application demonstrates the use of a Clarion Handy Tools extension template called "EmbedDateFunctions". This template attaches a CHT OOP class to your procedure called "HNDDates" which is stored in HNDDATES.INC (header module) and HNDDATES.CLW (code module).

As usual, subscribers with a SOURCE code subscription receive the code module as well as the header. DLL version subscribers receive only the header module and the class code is in one of the CHT DLLs.

The application illustrates the syntax used to call many of the functions available in the HNDDates class. There are also two separate implementations of the calendar showing how you can modify the look of the CHT calendar by calling methods like OBJ.SetCalendarIcon() and embedding new calendar image properties in that method.

DESCRIPTION:

Mail may be sent as pure text or pre-constructed HTML. The main menu provides access to CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE pointing at separate example CHT receipts (.XML) which can be generated to .HTML from SnapEdit's "Preview" menu.

This application now uses 100% non-ABC browses. The browse template in use on all three browses is CHT's own ListBoxBrowseExtender (AKA: LBX).

The EmailRegistrantsLBXBrowse procedure is built with CHT Procedure Template LBXClientServerBrowse, while the two packaging procedures are Clarion windows with our LBX template applied directly on the window with the browse list display control generated by LBX from its own configurations.

The application dictionary is HNDBULKML.DCT. It contains two tables: Registrants and FileVars. The latter table is used by LBX to create a browse queue consistent with Clarion's FILE:Queue (EQUATES.CLW) used with the Clarion DIRECTORY() command.

The Clarion Handy Tools offer a very broad spectrum of email support in the form of templates, OOP classes, examples and Jump Start procedures.

DESCRIPTION:

This application illustrates two CHT templates that enable embeddable CHT classes inside the ABC Source Procedure template. These are:

Source_EmbedMAPIFunctions template
Source_EmbedZipFunctions template

The MAPI template provides an embeddable CHT class called HNDIMAIL located in HNDIMAIL.INC and HNDIMAIL.CLW. Since this app uses the system's MAPI client email configuration, a working, configures MAPI client is required to be present.

The ZIP template provides an embeddable CHT Class called HNDComZipClass located in HNDZIPPR.INC and HNDZIPPR.CLW.

This COM class requires HNDZIPR.OCX be registered to COM on the system using REGSVR32.EXE. This app will do that automatically, but to test on another machine where CHT is not installed, this app's executable and the HNDZIPR.OCX should be placed together in the same directory.

If you want to learn to hand code with these two classes, this application is a perfect learning platform. The procedures provided may also be imported directly into your apps to provide pre-built functionality.

The SMTP template provides an embeddable CHT class called HNDSmtp located in HNDSMTP.INC and HNDSMTP.CLW.

The HNDSMTP class requires an SV DLL called CLARUNEXT.DLL which is available with SMTP capability only in Clarion Enterprise (the expensive one).

The ZIP template provides an embeddable CHT Class called HNDComZipClass located in HNDZIPPR.INC and HNDZIPPR.CLW.

This COM class requires HNDZIPR.OCX be registered to COM on the system using REGSVR32.EXE. This app will do that automatically, but to test on another machine where CHT is not installed, this app's executable and the HNDZIPR.OCX should be placed together in the same directory.

The default setting is to disable this ABC resizer interaction. When ABC resizer is enabled, it's up to the developer to apply that template to the procedure and configure it to his liking.

DESCRIPTION:

This WEB CLIENT application acts as a text-based forum help server built entirely from 100% Clarion code + CHT templates. We built this application with Clarion 10, but our templates can easily and successfully compile this application with any one of C9.1, C10, C11, or C11.1.

This text client will let you ask new questions and post new comments as you always have. The data tables attached to this forum started life in early 2022 and you are able to query back to then. Older data has been removed as many of the questions are no longer relevant to the latest CHT templates.

The data tables in use are TOPSPEED type which have a reputation of not being very speedy across a WAN using standard operating system network connections. That reputation for slowness exists because a typical one piece data application is separated from the data tables across the network.

Normal operating system streaming speeds, are severely limited across a WAN. And while SQL data streaming speeds are a bit better, they are still not up to the speeds that can be achieved using HTTPS across the WAN or the Internet.

You will, no doubt, discover when you browse this forum, that it is amazingly fast, as though the data tables were local to you. That's because CHT uses a two-piece application approach. The server is near the data tables where it needs to be, and that design localizes the amount of standard network streaming to mere inches, since the tables and server are on the same computer hardware.

The user interface, the client part that you are using here, is connected to the server by a far faster protocol over secure HTTPS using a highly encrypted and compressed data stream.

Try it and discover the speed for yourself!

This app is available as HNDCLIENTCL.EXE in your \accessory\bin\ directory. You can launch it from there. It is also provided as HNDCLIENTCL.APP in the \hndapps\ directory if you would like to examine and perhaps re-purpose it for your own use.

DESCRIPTION:

This application is designed to act as a starting point for all CHT "Secure File Clients" (eg: installers) intended to provide login-enforced file download services from a CHT TYPE 3 file server application like HNDFILSV.APP.

A TYPE 3 server, is based on secure, encrypted delivery to a set of customers or clients that sign in with individual passwords. The server maintains and authenticates against a server-side customer/client table. See HNDFILSV.DCT for and example customer table design.

This "Basic" version has had all non-essential componentry removed and focusses entirely on CHT templates and classes required to build a fast, efficient CHT secure file client using a 3-piece login.

This client application has a matching demonstration server called HNDFILSV.APP which is configured to provide secure upload and download services.

This client provides both compressed and encrypted file movement services without requiring either pre-compression or pre-encryption of the transported files.

DESCRIPTION:

The HNDSLFSVFX.APP server is configured as an XSA-2 configurable server.

First, use HNDSETUP.APP to build an .HZO container with the files to be installed. Set up a server based on HNDSLFSVFX.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 HNDSLFSVFX.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.

CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This application is a file client to be used with server application, HNDSLFSV.APP, to test principles surrounding secure, file exchanges with a CHT Type 4 file servers.

Type 4 servers provide server-level authentication, rather than individual user-specific authentication. This type of server does not normally have a user data table associated with it though it could.

HNDSLFCL.APP illustrates how to make secure file upload and download requests to and from a CHT server root directory or any directory below server root.

A log-in dialog has been added, under an unlock image button on the tool bar. This produces an XSA, 2-part authentication dialog for server-level authentication prior to transfer access being allowed. The ACCOUNT ID and PASS CODE #, entered must match the same two values established on the server.

HNDSLFCL.APP illustrates two secure file transfer functions: HTTPGetFileSecure() and HTTPPutFileSecure() which provide a progress window with a cancel button.

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

DESCRIPTION:

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 any HTML web browser, desktop, tablet or phone.

This server was branched from HNDSLFSV.APP 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 PEOPLEBROWSE.UCR. This is still a TYPE 4 server, however, because these UCR$ requests do not require prior authentication against a server password or against a user file. Page transactions with this server do not require prior login, and do not operate on a SESSION identifier.

This server 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 "Preview" menu key is clicked.

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.

Data rows inserted into a temporary copy of "000peoplebrowse.xml" file before processing to an HTML file, are read from a TPS file called "HNDO.TPS" which contains, a table called "PEOPLE".

DESCRIPTION:

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 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.

This server is entirely template-built and contains almost no hand-embedded code. It may be used alone, via a standard HTTP communications link, or via an encrypted HTTPS tunnel communications link, when combined with a STUNNEL Proxy configured with an SSL certificate.

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. This server (TYPE 3) is a level above CHTTP page server, HNDSLFSV.APP (TYPE 4), in that it incorporates a server members file with unique member access credentials.

Several demo client applications are provided to CHT subscribers: HNDFILCL.APP and HNDINSTALLMYFILES.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 is an "Authenticating" server. The client logs in by providing "LastName", "LoginID" and "EmailAddress". The server, unless reconfigured uses a member file called HNDFILSVMEM.TPS. New members may be added as required to customize the users list.

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

DESCRIPTION:

HNDSLFSV.APP is a TYPE 4 CHT server. It is our default web page, web file server. While most HTTP page views from a browser are public and do not require password enabled access privileges, file transactions into and out of server-visible directories are security-controlled via a 2-part server login.

HNDSLFSV.AP can securely transact file transfers with several CHT file client applications. All secure clients require this server to set up a single, 2-part server-level login (accountid + password), to control file upload/download permissions.

HNDSLFCMD.APP is a CHT "Batch-Bot" upload/download application, enabling transfers into and out of the server root and any server subdirectory below the server root. "Batch-Bot" style applications may be used from the DOS command line, from DOS batch scripts, and, naturally, inside Clarion applications where they are known as "CHT Snap-Ins".

HNDSLFCL.APP is a simple, example client single-file uploader, downloader illustrating four different client-side upload/download methods.

CHTSNAPGET.EXE is a pre-compiled C# utility application included in the CHT Toolkit. It may be used to securely download files from this server when a server accountid:password combination is configured.

This HNDSLFSV.APP is entirely template-built and contains no significant hand-embedded code.

DESCRIPTION:

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.

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 (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.

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.

CHT Snap Edit 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 editor application.

This editor is branched from the same C# source code from which the Clarion IDE code editor was originally built. In fact, if you view Clarion source .CLW files from this editor, editing will feel familiar. The hot keys provided, however, are optimized for editing raw HTML and XML files.

Hot keys are provided for most of standard mark-up operations such as BOLD, ITALIC Paragraph, Image Links, Web Anchors and numerous others.

CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE can be incorporated into your application from the CHT Snap-In interface where you can find a "CHT Snap Edit" option. Our template sets an IDE directive to copy the CHTSNAPEDIT.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.

Two procedure-local templates called SNAPEDITSTARTBUTTON, RUNCHTSNAPEDIT provide an easy way to incorporate various text, HTML or XML editing tasks into a Clarion Window procedure.

For DEMO application which incorporate CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE as described above, see HNDDOCUMENTBUILDER.APP, HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP and HNDBULKNETMAILPROMO.APP. These applications are described here: HNDDOCUMENTBUILDER.APP.

NAME:CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE
TITLE:CHT Snap MAPI CMD Utility -- Version: [27.00.00]
DATE:6/21/2024
CATEGORY:SNAP-IN C#

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 (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:

NAME:CHTSNAPSEND.EXE
TITLE:CHT Snap SEND CMD Utility -- Version: [27:00:00]
DATE:6/21/2024
CATEGORY:SNAP-IN C#

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.

CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE (AKA: CHT Snap SMTP), is able to send email via SMTP protocol from any Windows system with an internet connection and a viable SMTP server. Even web-based email providers such as HOTMAIL, GMAIL and YAHOO may be leveraged by CHTSNAPSMTP since they provide also for unique SMTP setups. CHTSNAPSMTP can also send secure, encrypted email assuming that the SMTP server being accessed provides for it.

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 a specific SMTP server and account emails can be sent from the DOS command line.

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

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application" builds a video playlist .NDX file that can be used with all CHT Video Servers, like HNDVIDEOSERVER.APP, and video player clients like HNDVIDEOEDUCTION.APP and HNDVIDEOJOURNAL.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 HNDSLFCMD.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.

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.

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.

CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDFBACKBUILDER.EXE, is a translation-file tool that every CHT developer who builds non-English applications will want to learn how to use.

Prior to 2012, 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 revised version of their own HNDCUSTOM.TRN which merges their personal HNDCUSTOM.TRN translations 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 for subsequent translation from the interface provided in this application.

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.

NOTE: A POLISH translation category was added as of October, 2020.

DESCRIPTION:

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

Our CHT Toolkit installer/updater, for your Clarion version 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 CHT-style 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 HNDSETUPMKR.APP to provide continuous, on-line updating of your software and data products. HNDSETUPMKR.APP uses a new install-maker template to generate a custom web-installer using the .HZO containers created by this HNDSETUP.APP application.

This applicaton now incorporates three CHT-XSA security settings and a "Post File To Server" dialog, in order to make it quick and easy to upload your .HZO container to a waiting CHT installation server enabled with a CHT-XSA security dialog.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDSQLTRACE.EXE, is designed to help you with your SQL application development projects by assisting with easy SQL tracing.

Start tracing by configuring the specific driver(s) used by your SQL application followed by a click on the "Minimize" button . Once this application is started, then start your SQL application.

Navigate in your SQL application to the specific area to be tested and bring HNDSQLTRACE.EXE back up using the windows task bar icon menu provided.

Manual tracing:
When HNDSQLTRACE.EXE re-appears all SQL statements executed to that point are displayed in reverse chronological order, with newest statements at the top. From this point forward, to trace specific actions, click the "Clear" button and interact briefly with your SQL application. 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.

DESCRIPTION:

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.

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.

The service can be run multiple times as separate "instances" with each instance performing a separate task using different filters, source and target directories. The instance number must be set before starting the service.

HNDBRWCL.EXE has for 15 years or more, been a client that dislays interactive pages issuing from a CHT Type 1 Server. That is, a server which delivers data wrapped up in Javascript objects incorporating formal 3rd party Javascript libraries and 3rd party CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) libraries.

Since 2019 we've been producing our own self-contained HTML pages which use no Javascript or external CSS libraries. The pages are generated by Clarion applications using a technique we developed (all rights reserved) called CHT XML2HTML. Presently 100 percent of our website pages are created by ourselves using only CHT applications built with our tool kit, accessing web servers also of our own creation using only Clarion, plus the CHT toolkit.

In 2020 we began to purge from the CHT templates and classes all code using TYPE 1 server techniques. This purge-the-old, replace-with-new work continues to this day.

With the release of this interim "News" application, still called HNDBRWCL.EXE, we make a final break with the TYPE 1 Data Interactive Web Server as it has been for many years and make official our intention to develop a forum application based solely on our CHT XML2HTML techniques.

If you wish to know more about what our XML2HTML looks and acts like in the form of a useful, interactive web browse, visit the following CHT server:

https://templates.cwhandy.ca/.

The "Type" column in this browse links to other CHT XML2HTML documents interactively, to display template-specific documentation for any item clicked.

No Javascript here, no external CSS, just pure data-interactive HTML generated by CHT applications using CHT templates and classes.

NAME:HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.APP
TITLE:XML2HTML Docs Mail [V10.24.06. 28.24]
DATE:6/21/2024
CATEGORY:XML2HTML
CLASSES:List App Classes
TEMPLATES:List App Templates

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDBULKMAILBATCHER.EXE, or 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 and it displays immediately, like text mail, without the user needing to click any kind of "allow" switch.

Style Sheet Generating Template
This application illustrates several "_mail_" XML2HTML example templates that allow 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 CSS styles (or modify ours) 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.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", CHT HTML Document Builder, is an excellent tool for creating HTML documents, for example, book chapters, manuals, and standard, static web pages. It creates portable documents that do not need to access the web in order to pick up CSS classes to handle formatting. These are generated by this application and travel inside the document.

To create a PDF of any HTML document generated by CHT HTML Document Builder, just print it to disk with Windows native PDF printer driver. Better yet, use CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE to render an accurate PDF version of your HTML document including active web links that still work from PDF.

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.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDPREVIEWER.EXE, is designed to act as a specialized previewer for use with our CHT Document Builder suite of applications, such as "CHT Document Builder", "CHT Snap-Edit" and "CHT Bulk Net Mail Promo" to assist with HTML interface development.

Menus are provided to instantly set the previewer's window size to one of a variety of viewport sizes for common device sizes from small phones like the Apple iPhone to larger phones, tablets and, of course, Windows desktop.

Interacting with "CHT Document Builder" applications, like CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE and CHTSNAP2PDF.EXE, this application picks up an HTML directory location or URL from the command line passed to it from the calling application, and displays the HTML content just generated and provides a way to transform the HTML document into a PDF document.

This provides instant feedback relative to the the document changes just made.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Utility Application", HNDPRINTHTML.EXE, can display .HTM and .HTML files and typical web content such as produced by the CHT Forum Web Application whether located locally or at a remote URL (website).

Buttons are supplied:
1) to select and load another local HTML file
2) to print the currently loaded file to the print device (PRN, PDF) selected by the user from a printer select dialog.

A URL entry control is supplied with which a remote web-site HTML file may be loaded, displayed and printed.

This app picks up an HTML file name (with path) from the command line if you wish to utilize the app as a command-line utility using Clarion RUN() or from a batch file.

If you wish to import the display/print procedure PreviewPrintHTMLMain() into your application from our app, that's easy enough to do as well.

DESCRIPTION:

This "CHT Batch Bot", HNDXML2HTMLGEN.EXE, runs from various other CHT Batch-Bots, Snap-Ins and Utility Applications in order to generate user-embedded XML template files into stand-alone HTML pages and forms. It will also run directly from a DOS batch file or Clarion application to enable it for XML to HTML processing.

The application accepts several command line parameters to provide input and output values, or to call its internal configuration dialog.

CHT Snap-Edit calls this HTML generator from its "XML2HTML" menu in order to transform CHT XML template files into HTML for previewing, storage, transport and conversion to PDF.

This generator implementation can access and call remote procedures established in a CHT data server configured in the "Connect" menu to request data packages which are then merged into the HTML document.
