So a solution for you given your process will be for you to start the other windows form application after the workflow completes.

So in your process would become:

1. A Windows form in c#, have a textbox to validate a email.

2. The submit button executes the workflow

3. The workflow do all the process and create a file with the result.

4. C# application from step 1 will start the next C# application after the workflow completes

Does this solution work for you? We will discuss your idea for the CMD line tools and possibly add it as an option.

Client Connector

I read that you use SignalR for communication between the server and studio. Are there any plans on using SignalR to create a Client Connector+Source Tool so that we can push content to or message connected client apps?

Tooltip text for tools in Toolbox

Wallis B 10 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 8 years ago 4
It would be cool if there was tooltip text for each tool explaining what the tool does and maybe briefly how to use it.

This functionality is now built-in all over Warewolf as of V1 in the Help area.


How do I substring?

anonymous 10 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 9 years ago 5
I have a data payload that I need to perform sub-strings on.
I can get the starting and ending indexes, but have no idea how to use these to create a sub-string.
I have checked the calculate functions and tried using the DataSplit tool.
The best I have managed to do is use the DataSplit tool to get everything after the start index, but I cannot seem to get it to stop at the end index without using a second DataSplit tool.
Its frustrating to use 4 tools to perform such a simple function. ( 2 Find Index and 2 DataSplit tools )
I will not create a workflow to do this as I need to use First and Last index in the Find Index tool depending on which string I am searching for. 

Can you please advise how I can do with with 3 or less tools. I understand the need to use 2 Find Index tools. I would like to know how to use a single tool to sub-string?

Not a bug

Web Request tool always times out

anonymous 10 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 10 years ago 2
I am trying to use Warewolf to fetch a web page's contents. The URL is : http://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency/
Everytime I try and debug I keep getting the following error : The request was aborted. The operation has timed out.
Yet when I use wget to fetch the same URL it fetches and saves to disk in 0.3 - 0.4 seconds.
I believe you have a bug in your Web Request tool such that it never properly executes the fetch request.

I really would like this fixed so I can use it to process data, else I need to write bash scripts since wget will fetch without timing out.

Just a Message if we try to drop decision or switch in sequence tool.

Anonymous 10 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 8 years ago 3
Hi There

Sequence tool is very useful while developing a large workflow and now my workflow looks very simple. 
I would really like to appreciate the idea of developing a sequence tool.
But when I try to drag and drop a workflow with decision or switch, it wasn't allow me to drop.
then I tried many times and concluded, this is not working properly, but anyhow I realized later that sequence doesn't allow decision and switch. 
So if we have a validation message when user try dragging a decision or switch tool inside the sequence it could be very nice.



SQL Bulk Insert tool

What type of data files does the SQL Bulk Insert tool support?
Can is read Excel?
anonymous 10 years ago
The bulk insert tool works with our internal data language. You need to use recordsets to maximize its effectiveness.

You can find more information on our language by clicking the [[?]] icon at the top of the studio.

You can also find an example of its usage by opening the Recordset - SQL Bulk Insert workflow in the EXAMPLES folder in the studio explorer.

Using a find Index tool how can I find a character Index in different record set inputs

Anonymous 10 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 10 years ago 1
When I try find index of character 2 in all record set using find Index tool
In fields as [[rec(*).a]],
Index “All Occurrence”
Character 2
And I want to put my output values in [[rec(*).b]] 
Output is coming as [[rec(1).b]]=2, [[rec(2).b]]=4, [[rec(3).b]]=6, [[rec(4).b]]=8, [[rec(5).b]]=2, [[rec(6).b]]=4, [[rec(7).b]]=2,[[rec(8).b]]=4,[[rec(9).b]]=6,[[rec(10).b]]=8.
Now output is coming in record set but how would I know 2 is at index 2,4,6,8 in [[rec(1).a]] = h2f2f2f2 .
And 2 is at index 2 and 4 in [[rec(2).a]]=h2f2.
And 2 is at index 2,4,6,and 8 in [[rec(3).a]] = h2f2f2f2.

Great example and good question.

The For Each tool is designed for this. Try dropping the Find Index tool into the for each and put the result into [[rec(*).b]].
