A setting in the asn (logical UDE_TITLE for example?) allowing an other text than \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Uniface Nine\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" in the title bar is a must. When you have several development environments and the UDE open for each you don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know which is what! Having a different label (window title) for each could be really useful. Someone else has already submitted a similar wish a long time ago. So the need is real.

Use Case

Open the UDE. The text you see in the Windows ot the UDE is not \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Uniface Nine\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" but the value of the logical UDE_TITLE set in the asn.

  1. The download proposed by FiresongKt in his comment on May 6, 2014 at 10:40 am  is not compatible for version 9.6. When starting I got these errors:0019 – Component idf version is incorrect; you must recompile it.0008 – Failed to activate Start-up shell screen.I suspected such a problem :-(I suspected such a problem 🙁 So we need executables compiled with version 9.6

        1. I think beeing forced to “hack” the code of the uniface product is a no-go. We come away from any modification which may be done in some patches. If it’s so easy to do, why it was not added to the official uniface product a long time ago? Daniel’s modification published in this forum is around for years now.

  2. In reference to Uli’s question. 

    As an overall direction, we not enhancing the Uniface 9.6 development environment.

    Our focus for development is on Uniface 10. 

    1. Hello Adrian,

      Installing newest patch for Uniface 9605 overwrites idf.aps and uuextn65.frm again.
      Is it really such a big effort to integrate Daniel’s changes into the product?
      Would make live of your existing customer base much easier.


      1. According to Daniel, we can do the following:

        “You can simply overwrite the two components with the ones I’ve provided earlier. Although the components in questions have been compiled with Uniface 9.6.02 they still are compatible with Uniface 9.6.05 (or any later release of version 9.6) – the code in the components has not changed. ”

        Tested it and it works, thanks Daniel

        1. Hello lejolyjl,

          Is it possible to share the idf.aps and uuextn65.frm that works for Uniface 9.6?
          Is there a download link available?

          Thanks in advance!
