Hi!

I am calling an IM report from a C++ program. I call the .exe and what
the user has to do is then select the report that he wants to execute.
There is only one to select, but this is a need less step. Is there any
way to bypass this step? I am using IM 6.0. I seem to remember someone
mentioning that this would no longer be necessary in IM 6.0.

Thanks,
Jim

I think you are referring to doc.id 44647.

Here is part of it. It applies to IM5 & 6


To open a painter from the command line, use the following syntax:

{win} directory\im050.exe {/P paintername} {/L libraryname} {/O objectname}
{N} {R} {RO} {/A arguments}

The use of win is required when you start InfoMaker from the DOS command
line.
Parameter Identifiers Description
/P Used with painter name to identify the painter access
/L Used with Library name to identify the library to open
/O Used with Object name to identify object (i.e., report, form) to open.
Note: object will open in Design mode unless the /R or /RO parameter
identifier is also used
/N Indicates create a new object in indicated painter
/R Run the object, open in Preview Mode, allow designing
/RO Run the object, open in Preview Mode, do not allow designing
/A Used to pass arguments to the report being run
Parameter Description
directory The fully qualified name of the directory containing InfoMaker.
paintername The name of the painter you want to open. The default is the
window that displays when you begin a new InfoMaker session
libraryname The name of the library you want to open. The default is the
library specified in the application variable DefLib in IM.INI
objectname The name of the object you want to open. The default is initial
painter window (usually the select dialog box) unless you specify /N. When
you specify /N, InfoMaker opens a new (untitled) object in the slected
painter.


Note:
If you use executables created in IM6, you can call that executable and pass
the report name (but not any arguments). Use your_executable.exe /? to get
a list of the options.

Terry:

The command I am executing is: system(c:\\shadlen\\reports\\opens.exe)
Using your message I attempted to do the following:
system(c:\\shadlen\\reports\\opens.exe /RO )
This did not work. Do I have to :
win directory\im050.exe and then add the other parameters. Using im050 is
confusing I attempted to find im060 but could not.

Thanks, Jim

Jim,
The arguments apply to using im050.exe. Executables created with IM5 don't
handle arguments.
When you use executables created with IM 6, you can call those executables
with a specific set of arguments.

Terry:
I am confused! I am using IM 6.0 and from a C++ program I issue the command:
system(c:\\shadlen\\reports\\opens.exe) this command calls the report, but I
have to select the program name in a drop down reports menu. I should be able to
go directly to the report and have the selection criteria displayed.

Is what I am doing ok? That is: system(c:\\shadlen\\reports\\opens.exe) ?? If
not what should I be doing? And where do I find the doc you mentioned earlier?
(doc.id 44647)

Run opens.exe /? and see if it shows a messagebox with all available
options. If it doesn't you need to get a newer version of imstyle6.pbl and
recompile your exe. I don't know of the top of my head where you can
download this patch. I'll have to look it up.
When you register for ECM (free!), you can browse the tech library and get
these documents. http://support.sybase.com/
