    Hi Advansys team

    I’d like to include in a form a chart whith datas extract from a MySql base

    First, is there a way or an OCX include in formativ to do it ?

    If the only way is to use OLEContainer with Microsoft Graph, could you help me with a piece of code
    Just to know how to initialise the object and use Graph properties throught the container

    I spend a couple of hour, but there are no good documentation about using TOLEContainer

    Thanks for help !

    Unfortunately, engineers are not sure that you can use the OLEContainer with Microsoft Graph. We also unable to find any reference in the web about it.

    Here are some suggestions:
    – Create your own COM enabled application which display the chart then call it from the Applet.
    – Create the chart in other programs (i.e. Excel, word, etc), save to html/image then show it in Formativ Form using the Image or EmbeddedWB control.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your answer,

    I think we arrived at one of Fromativ frontiers Frown

    We have already, whith your help, included some DLL to improve our code, but in this case workaround is not very pleasant.

    News about Formativ upgrade ? Wink

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    We are certainly continuing support and develop Formativ. In fact, behind the scenes, we working continuously with the GroupWise engineering team directly to ensure compatibility with interim releases of 7.0.x and the next version of GroupWise, Bonsai.

    The main challenge we face is that Formativ is a highly integrated framework which knits tightly with the GroupWise APIs. This means there is significant work in testing and evaluation of GroupWise API or client changes, either included through our request or otherwise, even when it relates to an interim client release (not just a major release). We are also working in some other areas to extend the Formativ Framework for .NET, which will expose the GroupWise server SOAP API, a key focus for Novell, to the Formativ Language (i.e. you will be able to make SOAP calls from Formativ applets). Even if you use Formativ for off-the-shelf solutions, these pending changes will enable an even wider range of solutions development.

    This level of integrated third party framework development needs to be coordinated with Novell’s technology roadmap. While we may release an interim version of Formativ prior to the Bonsai release, any major developments must be tied to what is released in Bonsai. This of course can change right up to or even just after, the Bonsai release date.

    I hope this helps explain some of the reasons behind our modus operandi. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

    Regards,
    Advansys Support
