NeoMallers Portal 10: Final Thoughts?

the final version of NeoMallers Portal Pro (Software Edition) is under way and expected to be released in the upcoming days. (yes, it's being simultaneously developed with Analyst, which is the web version)

Since i'm working on it anyways, any icky stuff you want to see in there? (no huge stuff please)

Enhancements in version 10.0
- new streamlined interface
- performance improvements in shop stock. (shop stock ranking processor bumped from 65-70 items per second to roughly 7700-18,885 items per second on my database)
- Export and maybe import from Analyst
- Shop stock improvement: selecting the comment area no longer highlights the whole damn thing
- Update check disabled by default.
- fixed the item sold today bug
- overall (front screen) now actually shows unique stock, qty items in stock, value and the last update of the shop front
- Im lazy feature in shop front setting now saved.
- Sorting of shop stock by either alpha, or by wiz/mall price (As suggested by leelo513) Mall and Wiz price can be toggled by double clicking the label as opposed to the checkbox itself.

****** Beta 4 is now available. *********
http://neomallers.com/downloads/portal10b4.exe

New features:
Beta 4: double clicking an item in filtered mode (out of stock) now defaults to the in stock warn value (vs -1)
- Right click action will initiate the -1 effect (to mark it as skipped)
- Shop Front Cost added to main screen (Thanks zixianna!)
- sales history "went out of stock" bug fixed.

Note: Don't forget to backup your current installation/files just in case. (Just copy the entire folder some place else)

It reminds me of ebay for some reason. Must be the cart you have for the "Submit Sales History".

Looks pretty nifty. Round of applause***

If I knew you were working on this, I would have been writing down all the million thoughts I've had while using it! Now I'm going to have to brain storm!

-selecting the comment area no longer highlights the whole damn thing-

Woohoo! Thank you!

How about source code? Wink
I had to ask!

If PathExists(App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\sd.db", False) = True Then
Call List_Load(frmSales_main.lstSalesDates, App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\sd.db")
End If

If DirExists(App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\db_shopstock") = False Then 'create shopstock directory if not existing
    MkDir (App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\db_shopstock")
End If

If DirExists(App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\cache") = False Then 'create cache directory if not existing
    MkDir (App.Path & "\users\" & strUsername & "\cache")
End If

There. Source code Smile Hope you're happy

It's a start! And I like how you posted a very Windows specific part of the code too Smile

ohh it was random actually Blum 3
Just Cp'd whatever part was showing up on the screen. If you want really windows specific stuff:

  Public Declare Function GetTickCount Lib "Kernel32" () As Long ' stupid windows APIs
  Public lngMS As Long
 Public Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib "USER32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" _
    (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function GetWindowLong Lib "USER32" Alias "GetWindowLongA" _
    (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long
Public Const GWL_STYLE = (-16)
Public Const WS_CAPTION = &HC00000

OK, this might be considered too big, but how about multi-select and multi-update?
It may not be TOO hard actually Smile

Also, is it possible to add search criteria, and also have a 'not' option?
Such as 'comments include FQ but not EFQ' (2 things I used recently for my (water) Faerie Quest items, and I was temporarily stocking Earth Faerie Quest items)?
Search on Last Date Sold (look up items that haven't sold since before a certain date, or last sold between certain dates, etc)?

And as for silly comments, so does TNT (don't we all?), as you've seen Smile

I was actually thinking about that saying that, Zixi!
