The bBrowser.NET 4 (Vulcan Edition) bases on the bBrowser 4 for Visual Objects and offers a very high compatibility to this product. Most of all classes, methods, accesses and functions were taken on from the bBrowser for Visual Objects into the bBrowser.NET (Vulcan Edition). However, there are some few classes, access and functions which could not be taken on at the bBrowser.NET (Vulcan Edition) or whose takeover did not make sense.
Following points are to be heeded with the transferred from the bBrowser for Visual Objects to the bBrowser.NET (Vulcan Edition):
The undocumented class bVOVersion is not supported any more. The class determines the version of Visual Objects.
The access bBrowser:Font was renamed into bBrowser:DataFont. It is possible in VO to name methods and accesses (Access/Assign) with the same names. This ability was used in bBrowser in the access bBrowser:Font and the method bBrowser:Font(). Under .NET this ability is not supported. Methods and accesses must have different names. For this reason, the access and assign was renamed from bBrowser:Font in bBrowser:DataFont.
The following accesses from the class Font are supported no more:
It is possible in Visual Objects to add methods and accesses to strange classes. This possibility is not supported in .NET. For this reason the accesses listed above was integrated in the class bFont. It has to be taken care at the use of these accesses now that the used font object is derived from the class bFont.
The following access from the class DBServer is supported no more:
It is possible in Visual Objects to add methods and accesses to strange classes. This possibility is not supported in .NET. For this reason the access listed above was integrated in the class bDBServer. It has to be taken care at the use of this access now that the used data server object is derived from the class bDBServer.
The access and assign bArrayServer:OrderKeyNo is no longer supported. Instead for the access the new method bArrayServer:OrderKeyNo() and for the assign the new method bArrayServer:OrderKeyGoTo() must be used. Such a change was necessary to retain the compatibility to class DBServer. In this class the access and assign is also no longer supported.
The undocumented function bOutputDebugString() is supported no more. The function can be used in Visual Objects to output a string in the Debug-Window of Microsoft.
