What's New (February 12, 2001)

This area is used to keep information that has changed since the last published manual.

Changes to MSSERVER and SERVER can be found in the MSJOB documentation.


OCX

The OCX versions of any of the MiddleMan engines do not present dialog or message boxes. As a consequence, SaveConfig, SetSessionConfig and SetTraceConfig will return false and no action will be taken. All of the functions of these methods are accessible through properties and other methods.

Client Properties

TraceFile, type string, write access

Allows the user to specify the name of a file that will be used to store trace information. This property is used with TraceLevel to allow the programmer control of when, where and what to trace. This function is also available from the SetTraceConfig method. The default is an empty string and indicates that trace information should be displayed in a window. Set this string to a file including any path information that is needed.

da.TraceFile = "C:\MDMTRACE.TXT"
da.TraceLevel = 15
...
da.TraceLevel = 0
da.TraceFile = ""


TimeOut, type integer, read/write access

This property allows a program to change the network read time out. It has been implemented to prevent false error messages from occurring during HostCommand execution where the MPE Command issued takes longer than the default 120 seconds to occur. It affects any call where the client software waits for the server to process a command. This value can be changed at any time during a connection. The value is in seconds and the default is 120.

TmpTimeOut = da.TimeOut ' Store old TimeOut value
da.TimeOut = 600 'Set TimeOut to 10 minutes
if (Not da.HostCommand("LISTF @.@.@,2")) Then
MsgBox "HostCommand: " & da.ErrorMessage
End If
da.TimeOut = TmpTimeOut 'Set TimeOut to old value


Client Methods

Boolean SaveConfigAs ( String filename )

This method allows an application to store current session information to a user specified file. The file can be used by LoadConfig to restore this information to a new session. The information stored is the same as SaveConfig. No dialog box is presented when this method is called.

Set da = CreateObject("MdmDA.Session")
If (Not da.LoadConfig("session1.das")) Then
da.SetSessionConfig
If Not da.SaveConfigAs("session1.das") Then
MsgBox "SaveConfigAs: " & da.ErrorMessage
Exit Sub
End If
End If


Server Changes

Version 2.3.1.0 or later

Three special command have been added to HostCommand. Two provide online access to tracing of the host process and the third will allow the client to query the server version.

Private Sub btnTROF_Click()
da.HostCommand ("MSCOMMANDTROF")
Text1.Text = da.errormessage
End Sub

Private Sub btnTRON_Click()
da.HostCommand ("MSCOMMANDTRON")
Text1.Text = da.errormessage
End Sub

Private Sub btnVERS_Click()
da.HostCommand ("MSCOMMANDVERS")
Text1.Text = da.errormessage
End Sub
