TD-19390: Enhancement of VisListAddValue

Post by markus.essmayr » 07 Nov 2008, 07:52

Hello,

in my applications, VisListAddValue is a very common function.
It's my favourite way of assigning keys to List Box and Combo Box entries.
The only thing that's annoying sometimes is, that this function doesn't work for Table Window Columns with the Drop Down List Style.

Could you please think about enhancing the functionality to work with Table Window (and of course Child Grid) Columns too?

Thanks very much!

Max

Gupta has assigned TD-19390 for this.

Was [TD-19390] enhanced already?
Well, it looks like it was reported for v5.1 SP4 but never done. it's odd, though, where I found this information:

Uwe reported on 25 APRIL 2014 that the bug was assigned, and normally one would look for bugs' statuses in the Bug Reports section, like this thread that TerryP reported bug fixes/enhancements for in the TD v5.2 Bug Reports section

What's surprising to me is that Terry mentions that zip of fixes on 13 DECEMBER 2013, but TD-19390 isn't listed there. I am not sure why.

Where it *is* listed is in the TD v6.1 Bug Reports section, again posted by TerryP, on 20 APRIL 2015. I've attached an image showing the info. in the XLS file of the bug reports file for v6.1 as posted by Terry.

Conclusion: Looks like TD-19390 fell into the 'bit bucket' and hasn't been looked at since. (Or was removed because...) as a guess only I would think that since using SalListAdd() instead -- as your demo shows -- seemed such an easy workaround that the enhancement was never done.

Hi All,

Just to clarify, for those who may not have read or be familiar with unofficial my bug list threads, they only include bugs actually listed on the forums or that appear in the fix lists included with the release of new versions, service packs or updates. I don't have access to any other "inside information" from Gupta!

Also, I don't include bugs from previous versions in the later versions unless they're explicitly referenced there. Of course, I do all this in my spare time and there's always the possibility that I might miss something along the way.

For this specific issue, TD-19390, it was raised against TD 5.1 SP4, and later "assigned" (allocated) that TD defect number, but AFAIK, it has never been included in any fix list for any version, service pack or update released since. The entry in the TD 5.1 bug list spread sheet doesn't show any entry in any of the SP/EMP columns, so unless I've missed it, it hasn't been resolved.

I know Jeff is only using my bug list to show the information regarding this enhancement request, but I don't want anyone to think these are the "Gospel Truth" for any/all Gupta defects/changes.

Cheers,
Terry Phythian

Thanks for the clarification, Terry, and no I didn't know how you get the list of bug fixes per TD version you did. Good to know and it tells me you are doing a lot of work on this Forum for your bug reporting 'feature.' Kudos to you and thanks again!

Terry, you also wrote:

I think that's correct: Enhancement never done. I ran the attached test case with v6.3 and no, the dropdown combo box in the TW does not get populated with the VisListAddValue call.

Having ItemData for Table-/Grid-Combobox-Columns would be great!
So we support this feature request very much.

Ideally we get more or less the original Windows Combobox instead of an imitated one.
