Hi Vincent, thanks for the "REPO_reverse" example

Thanks-a-lot Vincent,

I'm just in the process to dive in your codings a real "10".

Sorry for the question, but is there some "quick user guide" available?
Just an overview where to start and how to operate.

Success, Uli

  1. Hi Uli,

    You're right, a quick user guide was missing. I added it into a new zip file but here is its content. I hope it willl help.

    Reverse Engineering - Quick User Guide

    Specify a model and an entity => the entity must exist otherwise [1628 - Entity not Found]

    Specify a Uniface version => The Uniface default triggers are defined differently according the version.

    The navigation is performed by use of the tree widget in the left pane.

    Set the cursor on the name of the entity => all the triggers linked to the entity are displayed in the central pane Trigger/Property with the name of the trigger/property and their location .

    Set the cursor on a line of the central pane => the content of the trigger or the property is displayed in the Differences frame on the right side.

    Set the cursor on the name of a field => all the triggers linked to the field are displayed in the central pane Trigger/Property with the name of the trigger/property and their location .

    Set the cursor on the name of a subtype => all the triggers linked to the subtype are displayed in the central pane Trigger/Property with the name of the trigger/property and their location.

    Four buttons are available :

    Show Defaults

    Generate Specifications

    Maintain Specifications

    Search Local Proc

    Show Defaults : all the Uniface default triggers are displayed in the central pane.

    Generate Specifications : Specify the folder where the specification file will be stored. The default name is model_entity.spec.

    Maintain Specifications :

    Select the specification file linked to the current entity.

    The business rules of the entity are displayed.

    To display the business rule of a field or subtype, use the tree widget of the main form => the content of the form Business Rules will be automatically refreshed.

    Whenever you modify anything on the Business Rules form, do not forget to use the "Store Business Rules" button in order to update the specification file.

    Search Local Proc

    Whenever a call of a Local Proc is displayed in the "Differences" frame, you can display the whole content of the Local Proc the following way. (See Fig Repo_reverse.jpg)

    Use the Search Local Proc to activate the form.

    Specify the name of the local proc

    Click on the Search Local Proc button to start the search.

    If found, the whole Local Proc will be displayed in the form
