Hi to all !

Of_getclienttype function return only "PB" value (pbl in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\appeon\developTempFile\appeon_workarounds release of september '17).

I deploy a web app to local powerserver web, but this function return "".

Is the function complete? Where I can find the complete pbl?

I would like to use of_callwebservice function

I'm using PB version 2017 build 1666 with powerserver web.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Ganne,

in PB2017 the workarounds libs is indeed located under C:\inetpub\wwwroot\appeon\developTempFile\appeon_workarounds.

You must instantiate the appeonextfuncs object first!

appeonextfuncs apb
apb = CREATE appeonextfuncs
If apb.of_getClientType() = ‘WEB’ Then
    // PowerServer Web code
ElseIf apb.of_getClientType() = ‘PB’ Then
    // PB Desktop code
ElseIf apb.of_getClientType() = ‘MOBILE’ Then
    // PowerServer Mobile
End If
DESTROY apb

Alternatively, you can just use the global function

If AppeonGetClientType()  = 'WEB' Then ...

You asked why the implementation only returns ‘PB’: like many objects in the workarounds lib, it is just a placeholder to Appeon. When PB code is converted to the Web/Mobile, the function will be replaced by target-platform code. But if you compile it for a standard PB desktop application, it returns, indeed, ‘PB’.

Since you mentioned “I would like to use of_callwebservice function”, please consider what just said above. You must instantiate the appeonwebservicecomponent object first.
Cheers,
Marco

Hi Marco, thank you for answer.



This is my pb code:



 



appeonwebservicecomponent appeonws

appeonws = create appeonwebservicecomponent



setnull(ll_null)



 la_params[1] = ...

 la_params[2] = ...

 la_params[3] = ...

 la_params[4] = ..

 

appeonws.calltype="1"

appeonws.proxydllorurl=ls_webserviceurl

appeonws.classdescript=""

 

ll_rc = appeonws.of_callwebservice("....",la_params)

 

if isnull(ll_rc) then ll_rc = -1

 

if ll_rc > 0 then

else

 ls_path_client = AppeonGetCacheDir()

 ...

end if

 

destroy appeonws



 



 



of_callwebservice function works fine. Global function AppeonGetCacheDir() and AppeonGetClientType() return empty string, not a "WEB" string.



I'll try to replace the global functions with the appeonextfuncs object.



Thank you very much.

Hi Ganne,

They are located in the \appeon_workaroundsxxxe (xxx indicates the PowerBuilder version) folder under the Appeon Developer installation directory. For example, C:\Program Files\Appeon\Developer2013R2\appeon_workarounds125e.

As Armeen said: you need to include the pbl in your target. Then do a full build and a new full deployment. If the problem persists, please open a support ticket.


Regards,

Hi Govinda,



I include .pbl in my target application and I do a full build and full deployment. .pbl was in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\appeon\developTempFile\appeon_workarounds directory.

Please make sure your application target includes the workaround .PBL, and then do a full build and full deployment of your Web application to IIS.  I'm not aware of any bugs related to this feature, but if your issue still persists please open a support ticket.
