TOPIC: Soon to say goodbye.

Soon to say goodbye. 4 months 3 weeks ago #7998

  MathiasHakansson's Avatar Topic Author MathiasHakansson Offline Posts: 49
Hi all,

I'm sorry to say that I have been discharged from my employer. The reason is that they want to gather all their development in Skellefteå (very far north in Sweden), and as I live in southern Sweden with my family moving there is not an option for me. The term of notice is 6 months so I will not be thrown out just yet, but chances are that I will find a new position before that.

I want to thank everyone here for everything that you have taught me and for all exciting discussions that I have had the privilege to participate in. Even though I have been doing my new development in C#, I have also been maintaining my old VO applications and this far I have failed to find any forum for C# that is as productive and sharing as you all have been.

Thank you again, and good luck too you all and to X#.

/Mathias Håkansson, Växjö, Sweden.

Hi Mathias,

I'm very sorry! That is a bad notice!

But I hope that you will find soon a new employment, and maybe in your new work or private interest you can continue to be a member of the X# Community!

HI Mathias,

Sorry to hear that, but I'm sure that someone with your depth of knowledge will have no problem getting another good position.

I agree with everything you said about the environment here... I too work in C# and maintain old VO apps, and as you say, I know of no other online community that comes close.

All the best

Nick

Hi Mathias

I can only echo what others here have said.

I wish you all the best for the future.

I am now free from commercial constraints, and any need to maintain old apps etc. which means I can basically follow my own interests.

I still find this community and it's value to be second to none. So hope you can continue as a member of it.

All the best

Terry

The best of wishes to you and your family in this time. It is sad to hear and know, but sometimes we however need to see the opportunities it create. Own software house, remote log into company and still be a member of the team...
It does not matter the outcome, you will always be part of our community and hope you will stay a member of the community. Your posts are appreciated.

Hi Mathias,

I´m still using your Sle class, and i´m pretty sure that it´ll also run with the X# created VO-Dlls :-)

all the best !

Karl-Heinz. Nice to hear that someone is still using MathiasSLE besides myself. I did MathiasSLE about 20 years ago so it's surprising that someone even remembers it. Claudio DiNucci from Italy helped a lot when doing the tricky parts about editing numerics with picture clauses.

I did use it as well! Although I wasn't sure if it was you that wrote it, I met so many Mathias's over the years, maybe it would be better if you had named it "HakanssonSLE" :). In any case, very nice work!

Hi Mathias,

Although your class is 20 years old, the behavior when entering especially float numbers is still unbeaten. Yes, there are some tricky parts, but the X# runtime even knows _GetStringDXAX() ;-). The only problems have been the two PTR ( _cast , <string> ) and that a .net assign doesn´t return a value. Sure, there are still some tests to do, but it looks very good.

BTW. When I look at the last history entry:

[...]
1998-05-05 or 05.05.98 :-)
Now supports dates with pictures containing decimal points (.).
very small change in the decimalpos access.
[...]

is there a newer version available ? - though i can't imagine how to make it even more better :-)

regards

Karl-Heinz: That's the first item. The last is
2002-10-01
Using the + and - did not work on an empty date.

If you don't have the latest version it can be found here:

Hi Mathias,

it would be a good idea to transport this code to WinForms and WPF....

Yes Wolfgang, I agree. It sounds like Karl-Heinz already has. You are free to do so if you want. I don't have X# installed so I can't do it, at least not in the near future.

Hi Mathias,

since X# is open source and there is a free version, nothing can stop you from installing and using it on your private machine....

Wolfgang
P.S. I don't know if Karl-Heinz has moved it "only" to the VO GUI classes with X#... If you agree, I will try to adapt it for WPF.

Hi Wolfgang,

Yes, i´m talking about the X# VO GUI only. IMO it makes no sense trying to customize the code for a winform edit control or WPF. There are far too many dependencies to VO-specific edit internals.

@Mathias
thanks, later on i'll feed the compiler with the new version.

regards

@Karl-Heinz
There is a really big chance that it is the same version that you are already using. Nothing has changed since 2002 or so.

Karl-Heinz, have you looked at Willie Moore's rightSLE, he did it for WinForm and WPF as well. Maybe you can get some ideas how he did it. I see it is available on his website.
