What's New in OpenInsight 10.0.6
OpenInsight 10.0.6 was released on April 11, 2019.  Here's what's new:
Presentation Server
  • Optimized page swap rendering
  • Implemented PAGESWAPRENDERMODE property for paging components
  • Implemented REPAINT method
  • Added Repaint parameter to the INVALIDATE method
  • Removed "inherited event" processing
  • Added RDW_FRAME when setting REDRAW back to TRUE$        
  • Implemented Relative time specifiers for VALUE-based properties
WINDOW object
  • Implemented READPREV method 
  • Improved performance by reducing redundant output (for duplicate events and classes)
  • Added new event "classlink" for optimization (used for example with a whole table of links or buttons so that there's only a single function that gets called to act on the click, based on a class name )
O4W Form Wizard
  • Changed to use new optimized classclick event instead of individual qualifyevents on icon buttons
  • Added ability to specify foreground and background colors on search results page
O4W Report Wizard
  • Changed to use new optimized classclick event instead of individual qualifyevents when called as multiselect popup
Lock Manager (OI Console)
  • Changed to use new classclick event
Banded Report Writer (BRW)    
  • Added support for SYSDICT items.  Example code added to supplied RTI_BRW_SUPPORT example routine.

  • New routine to optimize multiple sequential SELECT statements, when issued either to local OI system or backend BFS.
  • Subroutine accepts a series of SELECT statements (@fm delimited), determines if local or server selects, runs the statements as a block, and returns the final set of keys as an active select list.
  • Currently implemented for OI, D3, QM hosts.

Enhancing an OpenInsight report for use with O4W
If you've got an existing OI report that generates OIPI/OIPI.Net output, there are a few options for how you might make this same output available via the browser to O4W users.

If the existing report is basically data-driven (for example, if the output could be effectively generated via R/List), there are some easy options.  One choice is to recreate the report using the O4W Report Wizard.  This will allow you to create a "collector" window (for any prompts) and then specify which fields you wish to display, and allows you to include any R/List style modifiers (total, break-on, etc.).  Since this report is designed for web output, it is fully interactive, and allows the user to download the results.  The second choice is to create a Banded Report Writer (BRW) report, which can then be called from the browser to generate PDF outputs.

If neither of these "easy options" is appropriate – for example, the output cannot be easily represented as an R/List report – then modifications to the basic+ code are necessary. These break down into two pieces:
1. Prompting for data required to run the report, and
2. Generating output for display in the browser.
