Well all I can say is HOLY MOLY Benny has way too much free time. That is an amazing amount of work on the KiXform.NET Designer.

Good looking GUI and just overall amazing. Wish one of my forms was half as good as this looks.

Benny must be from Europe, Americans can't have that much free time away from the significant other without the words SPLIT/DIVORCE coming into play.

GREAT WORK Benny on KiXforms.NET Designer, my hats off to you.

Hmm. How would that Split look in KiX...

Code:

$aMarriage = "Benny","Wife"
$Benny = Split(Join($aMarriage,"~Ring~"),"~HalfOfEverything~")

Ja, you're right. I left some stuff out...

Code:

$aMarriage = "Benny","Wife"
$Benny = Split(Join($aMarriage,"~Ring~"),"~Dignity~")
$Benny = $Benny - $ChildSupport - $House - $Car - $LawyerFees - $Etc.



Edit - but I'm not bitter.

It has to be said KiXforms Designer (and KiXforms of course) is absolutely brilliant!

I don't know how can we thank you guys enough for the time you have spent developing this!

Anyway, I have a couple of comments...

1. I used KiXforms Designer and added a ListView control. After adding this control I was unable to drag and resize it. I've closed and reopened KiXforms and I get the same problem!
2. I am unable to find a Progress Bar Control. Is it likely that such a control will be added in the future?

Many thanks guys,

Lee

Thanks Lee - your comments mean a lot. Dale G. wrote Kixforms Designer but I can answer your questions...

Q. I used KiXforms Designer and added a ListView control. After adding this control I was unable to drag and resize it. I've closed and reopened KiXforms and I get the same problem!

A. Need to right-click then select "move/resize..." context menuitem. This changes the listview into a "token". Then you can move/resize this "token" to whereever, then change it back to a listview when done. The reason we do this is because the mouse-moving characteristics of the list-view (and some other controls) doesn't like it when one tries to "design" and "use" a control at the same time.


Q. I am unable to find a Progress Bar Control. Is it likely that such a control will be added in the future?

A. Absolutely. Stay-tuned.

-Shawn

Great Shawn - thanks for the reply!

I didn't notice the move/resize option - I assumed it would work in the same way as the other controls. But that's fine - thanks for that.

Anyway, I have another small issue (I hate to mention these because I think this app is "so" useful, and saying anything (even slightly) negative seems a little unfair!) Anyway, sometimes I really have trouble renaming some of the items that I create in the Menu Editor.

It would be nice to be able to right-click the items in the Menu Editor and be able to select "Rename, Promote or Demote". The Promotion and Demotion options could allow menu items to be pushed up (or down) occordingly.

Regards,

Lee

Much to my discust our Websense "Protection" classes the kixforms.com website are Websense category "Freeware and Software Download" which is barred by OUR internal IT department. They are unwilling to remove this restriction Evil (Enter you own cuss here). Has anyone got this on a site somewhere else that I might be able to get at it?

Cheers

Rory

Ask your internal IT folks to set up a bypass for you. We use websense as well, and it is quite easy to allow. I to was questioned why I had so many hits to a "download" site, but once they saw what it was, no big deal.

The fact that I help administer the websense helped but....

Would using Kixforms.ORG or Kixforms.NET URL make any difference ?

Shame on you Doc.
At my site that would not work as it is blocked as well.

rofl - I bet you if I was on your site I could still find a site to use. If users in China can manage to proxy past their government I think users in USA can easily find a method to bypass you to.

No shame for me. Shall I post a list of others for you?

Please do, we are always open to more information. It is hard to keep up with.

As for finding a site, I am sure it would not be that tough, unless of course I block every possible search engine, that might make it a tad bit harder. But only a tad.

Well, to be fair Websense is a broad brush. You get a limited number of "categories" which are defined by the company which contain a large number of sites.

Disallowing (by default) access to all sites in any of the the "download" categories is a sane and sensible thing to do in a large corporation.

However if you convince your line manager that you need access to the sites for business reasons they should be able to get it approved and an exception made in line with your company's policies.

I've had some interesting requests - access to on-line wine ordering for corporate entertainment purchasing (blocked by the "tobacco and alcohol" group), access to the UK national lottery site so people could check their lottery tickets(blocked by "gambling") so but the best by far was a request from the staff in our Czech sites who routinely order their underwear online and were blocked by the "lingerie" group rule - now, who am I to deny the ladies their knickers?

richie...
well, those are on the grey line.
someone might pass them and some deny, but disallowing admins from downloading is a little odd thingie...
and a admin that says that he can't change that, sounds as odd as well.
