Baan Connectivity

Baan Technical Architecture

There are several ways of looking at the architecture behind Baan. From an administrator's perspective the chain model is prefered because it serves as a troubleshooting roadmap for any kind of connectivity issue. Just follow the chain until you find a broken link. If no links are broken, then it is time to call in the cavalery or put on your System Administrator's hat.

The hipbone's connected to the backbone...

void data.input( string options(.), ref string result(.), string default(.) [,ref long event(EVTMAXSIZE), ref long char_value )



This reads data from the keyboard.

If the function specifies a default value, that value is displayed on screen. The value is accepted when the user presses ENTER. However, if the user enters a character at the first position in the field, the default value is deleted.

Text field sections (report scripts)

You use a text field section to apply certain actions to all instances of a particular text field that are included in the report. A text field section consists of a main section and a subsection. The main section specifies the particular text field to which the actions must be applied. The subsection specifies that the actions are to be performed before the text field is printed.
