    Stingray\'s Objective Grid Extension Kit

    I just downloaded the Grid Extension Kit from the beta-soft ftp site. I was looking at the file (just a Word document) and was wondering how I get the OBJGRID.INC and GRIDAPP.CPP called for in the document. I searched my system for them but it isnt installed.

    Am I missing something?

    I am using Silk 2.1.4.

    The files are supposed to be created by you.

    The (initial) code is provided in the document, you need to paste the code into the mentioned files. You may need to add more code for more functionailty.
    Note you need the EK to get this working.

    Re: Stingray\'s Objective Grid Extension Kit

    Just posting what I have learned so far, so other in the future will have at least a base.

    I found that the Silk Extension for the Stingray Object Grid is not something developed by Segue (as my Manager had thought). It was developed by James Soderborg, who happens to work for Segue, but the extensions are considered third party and unsupported. I thank James for the work he has done to help people with this object.

    Looking at the document Mr. Soderborg wrote, it appears it is meant as a base, and not a complete functional extension. The document outlines some code that needs to be placed into the application code. The first part is in the GRIDAPP.CPP, which has the functions needed for Silk to see the grid. The second part goes into GRIDAPP.H, which has one structure and one class. Again, this is for Silk to see the code.

    However, for this code to be recognized, the Silk Extension Kit is required, which adds a few more files to be compiled with the main application. The Extension Kit is around $2,500 from Segue. This allows for special hooks to be placed into the application. This processes is called registering your QAP (Silk) functions in the application.

    With the code that goes into the development side, it should work as is. However, if the developers have done a lot of tricking with the Stingray stuff (something that can be done), there will need to be some changes and debugging to the code that is provided. Since the document was first written, two new classes have been developed, ViewGrid and WndGrid. So, the original code may need some additional modifications.

    After the application has been compiled with this new code (which by the way, is only for Silk to talk with it, it should not break the code), a GRIDAPP.INC file needs to be added to the Silk test frame.

    I hope this helps anyone who will be using this grid. I am still learning, but writting this helped me to put it in prospective.

    Thanks to all of those who helped me understand this in a clearer view.

    James Soderborg also wrote up how to use Segue's Extension Kit with the Stingray Software Objective Grid Object in May's segue.com (available online at www.segue.com ), segue's customer newsletter. Note: You need your username (first word of your company name) and customer id# (same number you use when contacting Technical Support) to access the customer newsletter. On the far right of the newsletter is an archive link. Click on it, then click on May to read James' article.

    Re: Stingray\'s Objective Grid Extension Kit

    We successfully implemented the Stringray Grid extension at Compaq. This provides us almost complete access to the grid's data and locations within the grid. We did have to do quite a bit of work to the code to make it function.
