Webulator/400 Version 1.1 PTFs

 

Program Temporary Fixes (PTFs) for Webulator/400 v1.1

General information about Program Temporary Fixes can be found at the links below:


The WBL110001 PTF

Note: This PTF was superceded by WBL110002, so you may wish to download that one instead.

The WBL110001 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Added keyboard support functionality. Please refer to the documentation included with the keyboard support plugin zip file for more information on how to enable keyboard support.
  2. Values of signed numeric fields were not being properly formatted in the 5250 return buffer resulting in a system error on RISC boxes.
  3. JavaScript error would be encountered when the field to receive input focus was a text area.
  4. Fixed RP trap that resulted in browser seeing message "Document contains no data". Problem was related to Webulator receiving a save display command with a screen that had no input fields. Webulator was not properly reinitializing its variables in this circumstance.
  5. The starting column for error messages was off by 1 column. This resulted in the first character on the error line to be incorrectly included in the error message.
  6. Fixed problem of losing screen information when a ROLL command was encountered. This problem may occur whenever a program writes to one line of the screen and expects the data to be scrolled either up or down before writing the next line of data.
  7. Pull down menu windows were not properly showing the window border nor clearing the text that appeared underneath the pull down window.
  8. Changed the button parsing logic to look for a | character as a valid parsing delimeter between buttons.
Special Notes:

The keyboard support plug in is a new feature of Version 1.1. It is included in this PTF as an efficient way for us to get new funtionality between releases of the product. The next release of the product will better integrate the keyboard support into the Webulator/400 product via configuration values.

NOTE: This PTF has been integrated into the Webulator/400 1.1A product.

The WBL110002 PTF

The WBL110002 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Values for input fields that expanded beyond one line where truncated at the end of the first line.
  2. The content type was changed from TEXT/HTML to text/html.
  3. Signed numeric fields were returning one extra character
  4. Input fields that changed attributes between subfile pages were being ignored.
  5. Output fields with a Reverse Image Blue attribute where changed from using black text to using white text.
  6. Not correctly placing the cursor in first input field when first field on the screen was protected.
  7. Some screens would not return proper row and column if the user never left the first field.
  8. Some input fields that had an attribute of reverse image were not being shown with reverse image.
  9. Improved logic that choose the font color when writing an output field with reverse image.
  10. Fixed problem with reverse image spaces output fields that extended multiple lines.
  11. Removed logic that made a new table data <TD> entry whenever more than one space was encountered. Will eliminate some extra space between words inside one output field.
  12. Fixed reverse image border problem with popup window using the DDS Window keyword.
  13. Not properly parsing parsing buttons of type KEYWORD. The last keyword on a line was not being coverted.
  14. Not properly parsing buttons after a popup window was shown.
  15. Not properly displaying input fields when enclosed with embedded HTML using the HTML DDS keyword.

The WBL110003 PTF

Note: This PTF was superceded by WBL110004, so you may wish to download that one instead.

The WBL110003 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Replaced spaces inside graphical subfiles with non-breaking spaces. Browsers were not honoring spaces which caused columns of text to be improperly aligned.
  2. Incorrectly converting DBCS characters when the VT Job CCSID was not the same as the Server Job CCSID.
  3. Incorrectly converting DBCS characters inside the keyboard plugin combo box.
  4. Incorrectly converting DBCS characters that had a second byte between hex 81 and hex A9.
  5. Not properly displaying a OVERLAY display file record from an attention program.
  6. Removed error message when user signs off a session with ENDCNN(*YES). Webulator now redirects to the termination URL.
  7. Not properly padding input fields on S/36 screens.
  8. Fix error that was converting non-display output fields to parsed submit buttons.
Note: this PTF requires WBL110002, so you will need to download that one first.

The WBL110004 PTF

Note: This PTF was superceded by WBL110005, so you may wish to download that one instead.

The WBL110004 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Incorrectly editing some numeric field types by rejecting a negative sign.
  2. Fixed problem with converting blanks to NBSPs inside a double byte field when using HTML tables.
  3. Fixed problem with numeric fields accepting negative numbers when fields were Right Adjust Blank Filled - CHECK(RB)
  4. Fixed problem with improperly formated data stream when returning screens that contained checkboxes.
  5. Fixed problem with popup window overlaying a portion of a double byte output field.
  6. Fixed DBCS problem of not recognizing a double byte value when a Shift In char was immediately followed by a Shift out char
  7. Under certain circumstances during subfile processing in 27 x 132 mode, an internal data structure was being overwritten. This usually resulted in an error returned to the user stating an Invalid IP Address was received and made their session unusable.

The WBL110005 PTF

Note: This PTF was superceded by WBL110006, so you may wish to download that one instead.

The WBL110005 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Sets the IP address that was used on the initial Webulator request inside a temporary browser cookie. This cookie value is then used if subsequent requests get routed through a different proxy server than the original request. This will stop some users from getting the Invalid IP address error when accessing a Webulator session.
  2. Fixes display problem with error messages when displaying overlay screens.
  3. Fixed array index problem when validating form data.
  4. Fixes timing problem when multiple requests came in from the browser for the same Webulator session. Depending on the timing of the requests and the size of the screen, data queue corruption was possible.

The WBL110010 PTF

The WBL110010 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Adds support for enhanced Active X keyboard plugin for Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x support.
  2. The WBL110010 PTF contains code changes that correct certain field attribute errors, particularly red with underline.
  3. Microsoft Internet Explorer users have traditionally had trouble with the F1 key when used with the Webulator/400 keyboard plugin. While the AS/400 F1 functionality is performed, the IE help dialog is also shown in a separate window. The WBL110010 PTF contains code changes that include new HTML logic sent to the browser that prevents this from occurring. It over-rides the IE action for F1 so the keyboard plugin functionality is the only process executed for the key. This new functionality works with Internet Explorer versions 4.x, 5.x and 6.x.
  4. Fixes parsing problems when a protected continuation field is detected in the 5250 application. The situation typically manifests itself when the keywords CNTFLD(nn) and DSPATR(PR) are designated for an input field in the source DDS, and results in the erroneous display of the field as an input-capable text area on the resulting display. The correction changes the field to an output-only method of display.
  5. Adds support for enhanced Javascript keyboard plugin for Netscape 6.x support. This fix provides keyboard support for the Netscape 6.x and Mozilla 0.9.6+ browsers. Webulator/400 users should be aware that there is a history of Netscape/Mozilla issues surrounding the trapping of keys by the browser itself, in addition or instead of permitting Javascript or plugin handling of the key. This behavior is browser dependant and functions as expected with their currently available versions (Netscape 6.02, 6.1, 6.2; Mozilla 0.9.6, 0.9.7). Bug report #96086 has been submitted to Bugzilla and a resolution is currently scheduled for Mozilla version 0.9.9 (which will eventually be included in a future version of Netscape). This resolution will hopefully eliminate the possibility of invalid key behaviors occuring in future browser releases.
    SPECIAL NOTE: To enable the alternate keyboard functionality (which causes the PC's CTRL key to act as ENTER), you must include the text "?ALTKEYBOARD=Y" in the query string of the browser request. This resulting URL might look something like the following text: http://www.myas400.com/WWW5250/?KEYBOARD=Y&ALTKEYBOARD=Y This is particularly useful for the entry of double-byte field data. If alternate keyboard functionality is not desired, additional text is not needed.

The WBL110011 PTF

The WBL110011 PTF fixes the following problems:

  1. Fixes a problem under V5R3 where when the server is configured to use authentication types other than *SCREEN a user gets a 403 error when they attempt to start a Webulator session. This is caused by a change in the behavior of the Get Profile Handle (QSYGETPH) API provided by IBM.
