Hi Paul,

You are not an idiot, as far as I can say. I did not update the iSphere modifier, because I wanted to wait for your response. I assume that I can release iSphere 2.9.2 at the weekend.

The spooled file editor is started, when you open a spooled file in text mode. iSphere 2.8.x used an editor to browse the spooled file. I changed that with iSphere 2.9.0 to use a browser class, in order to prevent spooled files from being changed. The main disadvantage is, that the editor class picks up selected text as the search argument, whereas the browser class ignores selected text. Therefore I reverted the change, but made the editor read-only, so that it behaves like a browser for the user.

Usually I do not use the iSphere notifier for bug fix beta versions. I use it mainly to announce beta versions of the next iSphere release and the final release, of course. I also use it for bug fix releases such as iSphere 2.9.2.r.

Betreff: Re: [WDSCI-L] iSphere data queue monitor

Hopefully I'm not being a complete idiot, but I ticked the "Search for beta versions" in RDi's iSphere Updates preferences, then pressed the search for updates button, but it says "There is no new version available". So instead I used the beta-version site and installed the iSphere plugin again.

Once RDi restarted, I checked out the preferences page and played with the data queues. Everything looks fine and works much better, even the warning message about 259 characters in the view itself. I didn't check out the change to the spooled file editor because I'm unclear what the change is, or whether I would notice, but I'm sure someone else is checking it out for you.

Thanks again.

Hi Paul,

I uploaded iSphere 2.9.2.b002. Please install the beta version and let
me know if it works for you.

Here are the changes of beta2:

• Changed spooled file editor back to be an editor instead of being a
browser, because the search option is more comfortable. The editor is
read-only, now.

• Fixed problem, that messages, retrieved from a data queue, were not
correctly copied to the clipboard.

• Added option to specify the maximum number of messages to retrieve
from a data queue.

• Added option to specify a replacement character that is used to
replace non-displayable characters when retrieving messages from a
data queue.

• Added warning message for data queue messages exceeding the 259
table column boundary of MS Windows.

• Added additional demo/test data queues to the iSphere library. (not
yet included in the save file)
