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

Anonymous 5 years ago in Studio / Toolbox updated by Gandalf 4 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.

Thanks

foreach

Paul Cannell 6 years ago in Studio updated by Gandalf 4 years ago 4
When using foreach Id like to know the "count" that Im on.
I have 1000 records in my set and after say 100 id like todo something. Id need to know how many iterations the foreaach has gone over.
So like [[=currentCount]] or some such idea would be useful.

Secondly id like to be able to perform complex activities here. If I want to make a DB call after each 100 records re processed id need a decision and then a DB service. I recognise that I could make a seperate workflow for this it just seems lots of effort for a simple thing.

keywords

most languages have keywords / built in functions.
getdate() for SQL or DateTime.Now for c#
How can I get the current time when processing an activity/decision/etc
Also Im sure there are other common things Im going to want todo. Be great to have this somewhere

Hi Paul

Warewolf is a Flow based language. Think about a typical coded function being a workflow and each service or tool in that workflow being a line or action.

So, if you are after the time, we need to execute a tool to get the time into a variable and then use it.

There are a few ways to get the current system time:
1. The calculate tool has all the MS Excel funcitons so you can just tupe: now() and then put that result into a variable.
2. The Assign tool can act like a Calculate tool if you start the assign value with an = so you can just type: =now()
3. The Gather System Information Tool has a Date & Time option
4. Date and Time Tool: If you leave the Input blank and the Input format blank, by default the tool will return the current system time in the system format.

I hope I have answered your question.

Hi Francisco,

You need to be part of the Administrators group to access the server.
Try adding yourself to it and starting the Studio again. 

Cheers

It is not possible to access WinForms objects from Warewolf.
Plugins are met for POCOs.

unintuative. Couldnt make workflow variables inputs

Paul Cannell 6 years ago in Studio / Designer updated by Gandalf 4 years ago 2
Until I used it in the workflow. This does makes sense but typically I would design the interface to my workflow and then implement bit by bit. I may only need the 3rd input param later on and Im still testing the first bits. But I cant pass this until later.
think of it this way. When you define an interface method you dont make them parameterless you generally know what you want to achieve. Perhaps a hint popup to let us know

We agree. There is a quite a bit that needs to be done to the variable list.

Thanks for the idea.

sp_helpText 'myProc' returns a sql error, I then cant reference ANY procs

Paul Cannell 6 years ago in Studio / Services updated by anonymous 6 years ago 0
if sp_helptext 'my proc' fails in sql then you cant select an action on the "new database service" tab. Running profiler I see that you are doing this for each of my procs. If one fails Im stuck
perhaps eating the bad ones and listing them as "problematic" at the end would be a good idea so I can carry on working on the other procs.

This error comes up in warewold designer AND sql management studio so its a sql error not an app error but the app handles it in a less than ideal manner.

Error : The database name component of the object qualifier must be the name of the current database.

Unload external dlls from the designer

Paul Cannell 6 years ago in Studio / Designer updated by Gandalf 4 years ago 2
I create a class library. I firstly discover that you cant return .Net basic types (string, int, bool etc) once I returned a class things were fine. Perhaps this needs to be in a hint :)
However in discovering this I rebuilt my dll a number of times. I couldnt copy it to the place I had referenced because warewolf has a handle to that DLL. Im assuming you host components like this in a separate appDomain so if you give me the ability to recycle that so I can do a build / deploy cycle without me having to shutdown warewolf would be great. If you can already do this and I just havnt figured out how, ... well then shame on me :)

decision trees getting cluttered

Paul Cannell 6 years ago in Studio / Designer updated by Gandalf 4 years ago 4
Assume a simple credit matrix. Based on your income you will get 1 of 3 interest rates.
Income > 10000 goes to the 1st outcome, >8000 the 2nd and > 5000 the third.
In the current version you have to make a tree looking like the left pic in the diagram.
If you attached priorities to a decision you could make it look like the second diagram. Say your income is 9000, you will fail the first check but pass both 2 and 3, however if you have a priority you would pass the income > 8000 check and stop evaluation at that point. Maybe a useful idea? Things like risk pricing models would benefit greatly from this and the designer space would look far less cluttered
Answer

Without the pictures mentioned I am left to guess.

My guess is you are talking about bundling up individual decisions into a single decision tree activity that would act like a switch.

Is this correct?
