Re: I need new application -- Invoice generator

Hi, yes, with REXX you are limited, it only creates ugly UI. Even if you can do nice artwork, it still looks not so good. The only chance would be to have a good (I mean REALLY good!) DLL for accessing QT for example. I don't think this will happen soon. :) But there is a problem: Even if you create...

Re: I need new application -- Invoice generator

Hi, good to see this is progressing! When I said "I will start coding if 5 people need it", I didn't mean money, I meant USERS. Okay, I see there is a need. Let us talk about your criteria: * the invoice generator is able to generate .PDF Okay, this means "pretty printing". My id...

Re: I need new application -- Automated upload to FTP

Hi, I think we have a lot of options - only need to select best. ("Best" here can be: Prettiest user experience, Least work for developers, ...) Option 1: - porting ncftp client to OS/2 (http://www.ncftp.com/download/) -> source code is there - make a simple GUI for it Option 2: - take nft...

Re: I need new application -- Personal Database

Ohhh, come on?! Are you serious? First you say ... Every user needs personal database for eComStation (GUI + REXX + Sql) (?) There was DBExpert and Mesa2 And then you come and tell "something like filemaker" ? Can you define the "something" perhaps more detailed? You say people n...

Re: I need new application -- Invoice generator

Hi Eugene, hmm... what about "LBH" (Little Business Helper) - see http://de.ecomstation.ru/apecs.php?action=item&id=804 ? If that is not sufficient, tell me what you need: - feature list - use case examples - fake screenshot - etc. And - how many people (among the millions of OS/2 user...

Re: I need new application -- BASIC Compiler

Hi, google translation helped me to understand what you are talking about. Well I recently re-visited VisualAge for Basic for OS/2. It is not perfectly stable and no longer maintained. Its features are almost equal to VB 3. This is nothing one could consider a suitable programming language or enviro...

Re: I need new application -- Personal Database

Hi Eugene,

can you explain what the users need it for (examples)?

Are you thinking about some kind of software like the old Microsoft Access, where people can create custom databases and tables and then have a GUI to generate entry forms and reports?

Cheers,
Thomas

Re: Backup software

Hi, ehh.. well, if I would ask IBM about releasing DualStor sources and DLL sources to the public, this is what would happen: First, it would take them around 2 weeks to find someone who knows what the question is about. That person would try to see if they still have the source code somewhere. Then...

Re: Backup software

Hi, no, I'm not talking about doing it from scratch just because it is more fun: The problem simply is that you need access to the source code for maintaining a program/driver/dll. As far as I know (and by judging from the failure of various petitions to IBM) we do not have the source codes. So ther...

Re: I need new application -- Invoice generator

Hi Eugene,

this can be done in rexx. I can do that - *if* someones gives me a DLL that supports basic functions for PRETTY printing from rexx.
(See also my comments in the "accounting software" thread)

Re: Бухгалтерия

Hi, if I understand Systran's output correctly we are talking about some software that does accounting and is rexx-based? That is something I would like to see too. I am thinking about it for a while and wanted to do a small prototype wo see if the rexx GUI can handle things the way I want and how t...

Re: PMFax

Hi, some time ago I posted a poll at OS2world to check if people have the need for a "contemporary" fax solution, perhaps even supporting server-based faxing. The feedback was... well, little. My idea for Fax on OS/2 was to use Harald Pollacks fax solution () and wrap it with some intellig...

Re: Backup software

Hi all, very intersting topic. By the way, IBM's DualStor also was my preferred backup solution (some years ago) because it was very easy to use and "nice". The bad thing was that (back in that time) it was already hard to find suitable tape drives (or suited drivers)... Now time has chang...
