I'm trying to implement a diagram from the Open Diagram project on codeplex: http://opendiagram.codeplex.com/
There is a class called "Model". The signature shown in VS.NET is this:
public class Shapes : Open.Diagramming.Collections.Elements<Shape> Member von Open.Diagramming
The collection Elements has the method "Add":
public override void Add(string key, Open.Diagramming.Shape value) Member von Open.Diagramming.Collections.Elements<Shape>
This method (and any other methods with the Collection "Elements") are not available in Progress, if I add the assemblys to my project.
Anything else is working.
I tried to add the same assembly to a new C# project, and the method Model.Shapes.Add() is available.
What's the problem here?
Thanks in advance!
PS. Here is my code (inspired by the .NET example )
define variable model as Open.Diagramming.Model.model = diagram1:Model. define variable tbl as Open.Diagramming.Table.tbl = new Open.Diagramming.Table(). tbl:Location = new System.Drawing.PointF(100,100).
model:Shapes:Add(tbl). /* This raises an error */
indicates a static type. .NET static types are not usuable in 10.2A.
It's too late already - a generic type, not a static type. But it does not help you either. It's not supported by the ABL.
If you can, create a C# assembly on your own where you work around the generics.
Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks for the answer.
Then I'm going to write a wrapper class for that.
I like additional work

I hate to be the bearer of good news and deprive you of your additional work , but the 10.2B Beta program might be of some interest to you. From http://communities.progress.com/pcom/docs/DOC-101182
Generics provide the ability to instantiate and access a .NET Generic class form the ABL.
Alternatively, it looks like OpenDiagram is an open source product/project; you could ask for or provide a non-generic collection
provide a non-generic collection
Sounds like even more work
