Update: Isv Configuration Manager


Today, one bug fix and one enhancement for this tool

1) A guy named Christoph has informed me that the attributes ValidForCreate and ValidForUpdate (in Button and MenuItem) are not set to “0” when you don’t action them. It is now corrected.

2) For the enhancement, it is just about Javascript boxes. I had to put heavy Javascript recently in buttons and menu items and I found that too boring not being able to select all existing script and delete it or even edit it in a wider window.

So, I have added two buttons near Javascript textboxes:

  • One for clearing the textbox content
  • One to open a sizable edit dialog window

The two new buttonsJavaScriptControl The edit dialog window

As usual, use the download link to get the latest version

Tool Update: BulkDeleteLauncher


So much posts on my blog in these days… :)

Some of you must know that the SDK has been updated with version 4.0.12 (download link).

I am responsible of one of the SDK update, as I opened a case regarding the error occuring when using MONTHLY recurrence :

Recurrence Pattern in Asynchronous Job Execution
Corrected information about job execution frequency. Removed "MONTHLY" interval and added "YEARLY" interval.

If you used my tool, you will have noticed that the MONTHLY recurrency was not working. It was a type mismatch in the SDK that is now corrected.

So the tool was also corrected to remove MONTHLY recurrency and add YEARLY recurrency.

Use the usual link to download the last version.
