Trying to transition my primary project from RecordSet to RowSet going from API 1.0 to 2.0 was a big in itself, but I got through it. Now I need to change one class from a ListBox to DeskTopListBox…
I can understand the need to change some of the event and method names due to changes like one to zero base referencing. I can even understand name convention changing for consistency, but why did you decide to deprecate the old events and methods completely?
Yes, 22R3. I was getting away with not needing to change my classes up to now but an EventDefinition is no longer firing reliably which I figured may be related to me using the ListBox. It’s hard to know what the best approach to take is now
You shouldn’t try to do too much at once. I suggest you have the API1 class and the equivalent API2 class with a slightly different name, in your app at the same time. Then you can move each instance over, one by one. When there are no more instances left of the old class, delete it and do a global name change for the API2 class.
Thanks Tim. It’s good advice and I’ll probably take that route. I toyed with the idea of changing to Jim Kay’s excellent DataView for the added features, but with the new grid control on the way, changing is a less attractive idea.
