  • UltraControls, .NET Assemblies and deployment, a follow up

    by Marko Rüterbories | Jul 18, 2011
    Traditionally Progress R-code is compatible a few minor versions up and down. So it would be expected that 10.2A R-code should work on 10.2B and 10.2B R-code works on 10.2A as long as you do not use any of the new features of 10.2B in the ABL source code.

  • No restriction on where you can use the Openedge UltraControls for .NET product

    by Marko Rüterbories | Mar 02, 2011
    Since the release of the GUI for .NET with OpenEdge 10.2A there has been a lot on uncertainity or even rumors about the license conditions for the OpenEdge UltraControls. The biggest – and very important – unanswered point so far was whether the .NET Controls obtained as the OpenEdge UltraControls can only be used in OpenEdge development tools or anywhere the product can technically be used.

  • Using object oriented language features with procedural Progress code

    by Marko Rüterbories | Nov 24, 2010
    In our projects where we support customers introducing the GUI for .NET into existing Progress / OpenEdge applications as well as while building our tools WinKit and Dynamics4.NET the integration between existing procedural and new object oriented code has always been a fundamental requirement.

  • Progress relaxes usage restrictions of GUI for .NET Bridge with 10.2B Service Pack

    by Marko Rüterbories | Sep 25, 2010
    Among technical modifications Progress has changed the OpenEdge license agreement (EULA) with Service Pack 2. Prior to the service pack the usage of the AVM / .NET Bridge was restricted to the use for building .NET UIs as part of the Progress runtime. As a result of the successful “Help us test the bridge” initiative, Progress decided to remove the restrictions from the EULA.

    I know that beginners may not want to believe this – but for me personally the OpenEdge Architect or Eclipse is the favorite editor for every text based file format, including ini files, batch files, xml and html – and of course ABL source code. One key to this productivity are keyboard shortcuts.
