IDF stepped hitlist

Author: (rogerw)


Uniface9 MSS.

is it possible to put a larger hitlist at eg. the "Open Component"-form of the UDE?

  1. Hi, maybe it helps you, add in your asn file the param:

    USYS$MSS_PARAMS = step size:1000

    That´s retrieve 1000 rows.

  2. Hi Rafa,

    it doesn't help with "step" or "step size". Uniface7 idf seems to always have a real large hitlist and Uniface9 seems to have approx. 100 ??

  3. Hi, we work with DB2 and Oracle, when we added similar parameter to those database, uniface retrieves the right number of rows; maybe with MSS there´s another parameter.

  4. Hi,

    are you sure that "step" or "step size" work in your development environment UDE?
    Check the behaviour of the scrollbar of eg. "Open Component"-form (picklist) .

    In our other applications it works as long as there is no "order by" or some check for $hits, which I suppose is the right behaviour.

    But in the "UDE/IDF-application" (eg. Component Name-picklist) I have some strange behaviour,  I think it worked once but now I can't get it working anymore, it seems to always use approx. step size 100. Or doesn't the scrollbar reflect the right number of hits as in my other applications.... :-(

    Regards RogerW.
