What's cooking... (v. 1.8)

Postby _Oz_ » Mon Feb 14, 2011 10:54 pm

1.7.1 FREE is officially out grab it in the download section of the site.
(Minor fixes and bugfixes were integrated into the 1.7.1 version available on the site right now, if you want them, please re-download it)

Changes since official 1.7.1 FREE:

FIX: Further speed optimization of Debugger GUI

FIX: Double-click on table cell containing char list (string) no longer sending it to Grid View (which is pointless in most cases) but copies it to clipboard instead (Sending cell to Grid View using right-click context menu is still possible if you really want to see the string as a list of chars in a grid)

NEW: Added choice for what kind of # column to add. # col is just a row number in grid regardless of sorting, as before. i col (shown as #i) is a row number in result received, will shuffle along with sorting
(groundwork for instant pivot of selected rows which is coming soon )

NEW: "Saving and loading" of results. Right-click context menu in Result sub-tab of the Output window (will be adding to another table-showing elements maybe to some of the namespace tree nodes),
To make it more interesting, whatever you save, you are able to load into q instance (3.x) without qpad ;-) just like with the files you'd get using save function in q.
(Not that I encourage you to do it ;-) proceed at your own peril and only with your own dev instances)

qPad should be able to load any of the files that it saved, it doesn't mean that it'll load any binary file you saved using q instance :) (although it might be able to load some of the binaries).
There are some tricky cases I'm not going to handle, not to mention enumerated columns I'd have no way of knowing how to resolve without corresponding sym file.

Let me know if you're looking forward to have this implemented and which scenarios need to be supported - I'll try to choose GUI/properties handling based on your feedback.


Links to (hopefully) stable devbuilds of 1.8 are here

Potential bug:
The excel export seems missing end-tag. I'm getting following from Excel

XML PARSE ERROR: Missing end-tag
Error occurs at or below this element stack:
<ss:Workbook>
<ss:Worksheet>
<ss:Table>
<ss:Row>
<ss:Cell>
<ss:Data>

Thank you
bayao

Thank you for reporting it, bayao!
I think what you stumbled upon is unicode unawareness of export to excel.
Fixed in RC5

Cheers!

Hi Oleg,

First off, qpad is a really good editor.

A couple of small changes that I think would be useful:
- simple wildcards in the server view filter list (like hdb*fxrapid)
- have the server list scrolled to the left by default since the username/password is less important the the server name


I tried out RC8 and wanted to give feedback on the delay feature. I actually think that it makes qpad worse; if you would like to keep the feature, it would be great if you could add a config item to specify the delay and if someone puts in 0 it means to not delay (ie: operate as before).

A few specific examples of where the delay is awkward:
- The syntax highlighting during the 1.25s delay is the same as whatever word you last typed; for example if you put select and wait 1.25s the rest of the line will stay in blue & can be hard to read in some situations (like when everything is bold)
- The undo is acts strangely: If I type 'some text' and wait 1.25s and then type 'more text'. Now if I hit undo before the 1.25s is up, it actually undoes the 'some text' and not the 'more text'.
- If you are writing in overtype mode and you make a mistake, you can no longer hit Ctrl+Z to undo and restore the character you accidentally overwrote/deleted. You have to either wait 1.25s and undo a block of text or switch back into input mode, retype the character you typed, and then switch back to overtype mode.

Or, now I think about it, maybe if you change the undo so it still appends to the current buffer for the 1.25s to fix #2 (or even have an independant undo buffer from the 1.25s delay perhaps # character based?), I can turn off syntax highlighting for #1 and #3 works like Word and other programs with batch updates work now. But it might be easier to have an option to disable the delay.

Thanks,

David

Hi, David!

Thank you for the feedback.
Typing delay was sorted out quite a bit (in regard to undo/redo erratic behavior) and made fully configurable - via Q->Settings->Typing delay in ms (0 - turn off)

As for supporting simple mask in server tree filter - I'll see what I can do in devbuilds of RC9.

Stay tuned :)

I'm a little confused about why the software expires. What is the plan after September 2015?

Great application. I'm a fan.

Software expires on a regular basis - 2 times a year.

With changes kx is doing to q and bugs that users helping me to flush out and AK's new versions of debugger that I'm integrating - taking a liberty to force people upgrade to new version twice a year. :)
As software is free, I don't have team or time to support several versions.

Plan is as it always was - keep maintaining qPad and release new free versions ;-).
Pretty much the same deal kx used to have with trial 32-bit version of q.

Cheers,
Oleg
