Hi Servoy,

I have a question regarding the new scopes.

- can multiple modules/solutions in the same workspace define scopes with the same name? Currently Servoy Developer allows that but only one of the scopes is accessible (the other one does not show in the Script Editor code completion; this becomes an issue if two different modules, perhaps even from different vendors, define custom scopes with the same name and then a solution references both modules)
- can different scopes define methods with the same name? Currently the Create Method wizard does not allow that (it treats all methods under globals and other custom scopes as "global" and displays the message that a "global method with the same name already exists"; however, if I manually create the method everything is fine and works as expected)

It will be helpful if some guidelines, DOs and DON'Ts regarding the scopes is added to the 6.1 wiki

Hi Servoy,

A question regarding the new entity scope:

It appears, that if I define a foundset variable like

Code: Select all
    /** @type {JSFoundSet<db:/sample_db/test_data>} */
    var fs = databaseManager.getFoundSet('sample_db','test_data');
    fs.customEntityMethod(); //this shows a warning that the customEntityMethod is not defined for JSFoundSet<db:/sample_db/test_data>


any methods which have been added to the test_data table are not accessible. However if I use something like

Code: Select all
    var fs = forms.test_data_form.foundset; //test_data_form is based on the same datasource db:/sample_db/test_data>
   fs.customEntityMethod(); //this works OK


Is this a bug or intended behavior? Are the custom entity method accessible only for the default foundset or for any foundset based on that datasource? What happens if in two modules are defined custom entity methods with the same name? It appears, that the entity methods are available only for the foundset but not for the records from that foundset - is this the designed behavior?

Thanks for your help with this.

We shouldn't allow this, this complicates stuff. Only 1 name should be allowed. and people should just use good names to differentiate between them
Please create a case for this.

Yes that should be possible just fine, scopes are complete separate objects/javascript scopes so they don't collide at all.
Please do create a case.

that should work (as you say you can call it just fine)
I think i know what the problem is that is that we have here a java type (JSFoundSet) and a javascript portion that is now mixed.
That is always a bit of a problem, we need to check this, can you create a case?

With the Rhino 1.7R3 now we have in Servoy the standard JavaScript JSON support (beware of the one-way date serialization!).
However, it appears that the Script Editor currently does not recognize it even though it works just fine. Can we have support for it?

Also, a very good thing to mention is that now the const keyword is supported and it is a true constant! That is just GREAT! It will be very helpful to add that to the 6.1 wiki.

Will look if we can add that as a type.
Please create a case so that we don't forget it.

not sure about this one, yes rhino does support it, yes the editor supports it, but i don't think it is supported anywhere else, i don't think its in a ecma spec, so i am not sure if we should promote it because it could bite us later on.

In that case you may want to mark the SVY-1922 as a duplicate for it.

Maybe a stupid question but I'll ask anyway. I would like to check out the demo, but not sure how to go about it using this link.

You need a Subversion client - probably easiest to install Subclipse inside Servoy Developer as detailed here: http://wiki.servoy.com/display/public/DOCS/SVN+Team+Provider

Once you have that you can add the link as a new repo and check it out.
