activate "Generate Info Messages" by ASN-File

Author: (BenjaminSchmidt)


in File->Editor-Setup you can activate "Generate Info Messages" (checkbox).

Is there an ASN-Switch to activate "Generate Info Messages"?


Thanks a lot


greets Benjamin


  1. No. But if you need this on the command line it is /inf

  2. Thank you for the hint. (I knew that already)

    I would like to use the "Generate Info Message" only in combination with $ude("compile"...) in a special service.

    So my idea was to use a separate ASN-File including somethin like "Generate Info Message"=On.

    Perhaps there is another posibilty.

  3. But you can only set an ASN for a complete process.

    So I do not see any difference between setting the /lis switch and changing the /asn=

    or have I overlooked something on that?

  4. Hello Benjamin,

    This will hopefully answer your question: $ude("Compile"): using compile sub switches

    $1 = $ude("List2Object", "Settings", "messagelevel=1")
    $1 = $ude("Compile", "Component", "")

    I hope the provided information is helpful.

    Kind regards,

  5. Thanks Daniel for pointing to this isssue.

    I had it somewehere in the back of my mind that $ude is capable to handle settings,
    but could not find it in the documentation how this is specified.
    I have expected to put it in the Options List using the keywords from the commandline (lis=2 as an example).

    Currently I sit with a customer so I can get 9.3 helpfile build date 2009-11-25.
    But I can not find the issues there.

  6. Uli,

    This stuff is still not (officially) supported and that's the reason why it is not documented. In addition we most likely will redesign this functionality (the different "LIST2OBJECT" options should be added to '$ude("COMPILE")') before releasing it to the general public.

    And if and when this will be included into the product I do not know. In case there is a real need to get this document then it is probably is best to express this as a Uniface wish.

    Kind regards,

  8. Hello,

    this seems to be almost identical to my problem discussed earlier... see related content or see directly this topic.
