Tech Tip: Redrawing Variables on the server
PRODUCT: 4D Server | VERSION: 6.5 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: January 19, 2001

When you want to display a 4D dialog on the server machine (i.e. for a log window), you obviously need to keep that window's variables updated. Unfortunately the CALL PROCESS command cannot be used in that context. In order to work around that limitation, you can use the REDRAW WINDOW command and trigger its execution using the On Timer event. This will force the display of these variables to be updated.
