Postmessage not working between two different processes
Author: email@example.com (Knut)
Hi all, I came across this issue this week. The documentation had me heading down the wrong track for a few hours (cut from the documentation): "The postmessage statement sends a message to the specified component instance. It is typically used for asynchronous communication between component instances running in the same or in a different process. For example, it can be used for communication between master and detail component instances, or to a remote service." Key words for me here were "different process" and "remote service". Nope. Couldn't get it to work at all.... Until I found a youtube video from Eddy Knochs (thanks Eddy!) (http://youtu.be/dvFfQ6rIH_A) Who knew you need a 3gl signature defined... See 10mins in on video. Hey presto - it works. Even RT(F)M seems to be a bit short these days - we need to WT(F)V!!
