This Form name can be used for the Setup Procedure of any report in your application.\n\n Paul D. I lay the car keys down on the desk, discard the junk mail and notice the rubbish bin is full. Because of the problems music producers have had with people copying and pirating CD's, the recording industry decided that they would solve this problem with ~DVDs by zoning them.Mc Taggart, Small Business Computer Services This is how it goes:\n\n I decide to wash the car; I start toward the garage and notice the mail on the table. OK, I'll just put the bills on my desk and take the rubbish out first. Most of the DVD tittles in today's market are governed by a regional zoning code that divides the world into six separate regions.
For example if my cousin in England sends me a movie DVD (which is zone 2) it will not play on my zone 4 only DVD player or even on my computer ~DVD-ROM disc player.
For someone like myself who goes overseas regularly and brings back ~DVDs and Karaokes from places like Hong Kong, USA, and England it's a problem. The variety and availability of ~DVDs overseas is better than NZ.\n\n Most DVD players for sale here in New Zealand are zone 4 players.
If you are rich you can pay twice the price and buy a multi-player that will allows you to play ~DVDs from other zones.
\n The following is from the Clarion Developers Quarterly, Spring 1991.
It is a copy of a question that is answered by the Technical Support team and may be useful for those who have recently purchased the Clarion Personal Developer.\n\n Q.
HOW DO I CONTROL WHICH DEVICE OR PRINTER WILL RECEIVE A REPORT WHEN USING THE CLARION PERSONAL DEVELOPER? Using the following steps to create a form that enables you to choose the device that receives your report at run-time.\n\n 1) In the application to be modified, select the MEMORY file then select the DEVICE field.
On the Choices line of the DEVICE field, type the device or "choices" where you will be sending your reports. \n\n I fill a container with water and head for the flowerpots - - Aaaaaagh! We will never think to look in the kitchen tonight when we want to watch television so I'd better put it back in the lounge where it belongs.
If you want to send the report to a file, use a file specification for one of the choices.\n\n for example: CHOICES: ~LPT1 ~LPT2 C:\s PCLARION\s PRINTFILE. I splash some water into the pots and onto the floor, I throw the remote onto a cushion on the sofa and I head back down the hall trying to figure out what it was I was going to do?
RPT\n\n NOTE: If you select the file as your report device, a new file will be created each time you run a report. Make sure that the specified path is the same that your application is in.\n\n2) Now, modify the Report Procedure. But first I need to put my coke further away from the computer, or maybe I'll pop it into the fridge to keep it cold for a while. \n\n End of Day: The car isn't washed, the bills are unpaid, the coke is sitting in the kitchen, the flowers are half watered, the cheque book still only has one cheque in it and I can't seem to find my car keys!
Press ~Ctrl-O to bring up the Report Options window. When you save your changes, the program will return to the Form Worksheet.\n\n4) On the Form Worksheet, place an Entry field for MEM: DEVICE on the form and save your changes. I head towards the kitchen and the vase of flowers catches my eye, they need some water. When I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm baffled because I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!!
On the Setup Procedure line, type your procedure name (in this example we will use ~RPT_SETUP). When you save your changes, the program returns to the Application Summary window.\n\n3) On the Application Summary window, select ~RPT_SETUP (To Do). On the Procedure Title line, type SELECT A REPORT OUTPUT DEVICE. Remember to allow enough space for the field and the choices, (MEM: DEVICE is 30 characters long).\n\n5) Run your application. Now you can choose which device will receive the report. I realise this is a serious condition and I'll get help, BUT FIRST I think I'll check my e-mail...\n''(Cracking the Zone 4 code.)''\n\n Let us step back for a minute.
