How To – O4W Pagination


How to create an O4W dialog box using local pagination
If you are building a dialog box or using an existing popup in O4W with a high record count, you may want to consider building each page of the dialog box locally.  This will save on the time it takes the browser to build the dialog box because it will only need to build one page at a time.  The way it works is, you set the default paginator on the O4W Configuration screen to one of the local paginator choices or alternatively, you set the ‘overridePage’ parameter in the O4WTablePagerOptions API to ‘O4WI_TABLEPAGERLOCAL’.  Setting this flag will send an event to your O4W program when the next/previous arrows are clicked as well as any time a column is clicked that is set for sorting.

Maximize your Remote Desktop Services


Giorgio Bonuccelli, Marketing Director of Parallels has published an article titled Maximize your Remote Desktop Services that we at Revelation Software find extremely informative when deploying an OpenInsight application over a Wide Area Network (WAN).

An Overview of Remote Desktop Services
Virtualization has added facets to information technology. Today, businesses look not only at optimizing business resources, but also at management of when, where and how data are accessed. Remote networks are among the aspects of IT that need attention. Nowadays, remote desktop services (RDS) allow businesses to deliver secure remote services to end users effectively.

What are Remote Desktop Services?
RDS is a component of the Windows Server operating system, and was formerly known as terminal services in Windows Server 2008 and earlier versions. It enables users to remotely access a computer or a virtual machine on a network. With RDS, any computer that supports remote desktop protocol can remotely access the full desktop and Windows software. Windows NT 4.0 first featured RDS in the form of terminal services, which improved with every new version of Windows Server OS. Microsoft added advanced remote desktop features to terminal services and changed the name to Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 R2 edition and Windows Server 2012. Today, users can take advantage of RDS to access corporate networks from the comfort of their homes.
