The editor progresses

Work continues on my editor, albeit at a slower pace than it should.  I have a working database explorer control prototype done my editor.  So far it recognizes any running Navision instances, pulls their server and database info and adds it to the explorer.  It then allows browsing of information for any object in any of those databases.  The treeview control itself is from an open source project (which can be found at CodeProject or SourceForge) called TreeViewAdv, written by Andrey Gliznetsov.  I have to say it is a very nice control and I recommend it to anyone who needs a treeview that supports "load on demand" or columnar data.

In the process of writing this control I recognized problem in my CSide Utils project.  Apparently version 5.0 Navision clients (and I'm guessing those prior) return time data fields with a fractional decimal of seconds on the end (such as 12:00:00.344).  Apparently you cannot pass a value like this back to the cilent even though it returned the value in the first place.  I added a clean little compiled regex to deal with this into the project.  I will be updating the primary source trunk for my project and uploading it to the website soon.  I will also update the download on Mibuso with this latest version (skipping 1.1 altogether).

New C/Side utility release

I've been working on my C/Side Integration Utilities over the week and I finally have enough for a 1.1 release this weekend.  I'll be packaging it up soon and uploading it to my site, so hopefully by the time you are reading this post, you'll be able to download the 1.1 source.  I have improved the objects as well as worked out another one of the unknown methods that I think folks will find cool (that method is EndTransaction, which also makes COMMIT possible).  I'm going to do a little more testing in the next few hours and then publish the new version.

Freedom to do what you are told

It seems like every day I become more disgusted with my own government.  It's no wonder a lot of the world hates us, because the US government behaves like assholes a good deal of the time.  Since when did the legislative branch of my government become the enforcement branch of the entertainment industry?? ...pardon my french ....but WHAT THE FUCK??  Our government abuses it's power more every day as time goes on and I'm getting very sick of it.  Our tax dollars get wasted on bullshit bills like COICA and it infuriates me.  Recently immigration enforcement agents were used to sieze a number of domains that were accused of trafficking in pirated and counterfeit material.  Now I'm sure some of these sites were legitimately bad but some of them, it seems, were just sites that the entertainment industry would rather didn't exist and I'm sorry, but that is not grounds to sieze their domains.  Also, COICA hasn't passed yet you bunch of numnuts beauracrats!  On top of all this, when did it become the customs and immigration agents' job to take pirate content sites offline.  Lastly, most of these sites were back up under other domain names in little to no time at all, so all of those tax dollars accomplished what????

Now back to my original point of abuse.  ICANN, while run in the US is supposed to be a nation neutral maintainer of internet domains.  It's no wonder other countries don't want us mainting the primary domain registrars when we abuse them so horribly for our own bullshit selfish agendas.  I suppose I should be used to politicians abusing power, but I'm not, it just makes me angrier every time they do so.  I think the founding fathers of this country would be disgusted with the gestapo tactics our government sometimes uses these days.

Continuing to play by the C/Side

I made more changes to my C/Side utilities last night.  Decided to change the FieldValue from a struct to a class.  I think I shall leave the remaining Field and Filter structs as is since neither of these should change once they are created.  Added lazy loading logic to the Record class, and by extension it's linked FieldValue class objects.

I am going to finish up my changes to the C/Side wrapper this week so I can focus on my parser and editor projects this weekend.  Been watching too much tv and coding too little, but what else is new.  For those not aware, I have a Navision parser project that I've been working off and on for the last 4 years.  I started putting a lot of effort into finishing the project this year and I hope to get it wrapped up and released in 2011.  This parser will be open sourced just like the C/Side utils.  I am also working on an alternative editor to the classic C/Side one that everyone is used to.  It turns out building an editor is a LOT of work so I doubt I will be releasing it terribly soon, but it will be worth the wait when I get it released.  The editor will not be open source but there will be a free version.

C/Side integration utilties Alpha released

I just posted the first release of my C/Side Integration Utilities project.  I hope it is well received and that the community contributes on this project.  It took me a few weeks to hammer out as well as a bit of help.  I can't thank Kamil Sacek enough for his help.  Perhaps I will post it to SourceForge as well.  I think in the future I would like to provide some wrapper classes for accessing a client instance as an ADO.Net data source.
