Warning
From version 18, the user groupware evolves. This help page corresponds to the user groupware kept for backward compatibility. To get the help regarding the new version of user groupware, see User Groupware.
Running the application test
During the test of an application that supports the user groupware, the first window or page displayed is the login window or page (regardless of the first window or page defined in your application).
A single user exists by default: the supervisor. To login as supervisor, enter the following information in the login window or page:
  • Name: SUPERVISOR
  • Password: SUPERVISOR
You can now run the test of your application or configure the user groupware.
Notes:
  • In order for the first window or page of your application not to be the login window or page, check "Automatic run" in the options of User Groupware. All you have to do is use gpwOpen to open the login window.
  • The windows or pages for managing the user groupware are run before the initialization code of the project.
  • The first window or page of your application (defined in the project) will be run after the login window or page (when the user is not the supervisor.
  • To avoid starting the user groupware when running the application tests, uncheck "Workshop .. Configure the user groupware". If the user groupware is re-enabled later, the data files previously used by the user groupware will not be erased.
Creating the executable
WINDEVWindows The executable of an application that supports the user groupware is a multi-instance executable.
When creating the executable that manages the user groupware ("Workshop .. Executable .. Generate the Windows executable"), a screen specific to the user groupware is displayed in the different steps for creating the executable.
This enables you to define the location of the common files of the user groupware (files containing the information about the users). These files can be common to several applications. In this case, you must specify the path of data files to use.
By default, this directory corresponds to a sub-directory of the executable directory (EXE\GPW_<Project Name>_GPW directory).
Note: The path of common data files can also be specified when installing the application.
See The data files of user groupware for more details.
Installing an application
An application that is using the user groupware is installed like any standard application via "Workshop .. Create the setup procedure".
In the wizard for setup creation, you have the ability to customize the path of the files for the groupware ("Customize the path of the groupware files during setup" in the "Parameters of databases" screen).
In this case, a screen specific to the user groupware will be displayed when the application is installed. This screen allows the person who installs the application to:
  • configure the location of the data files specific to the user groupware. See The files of user groupware for more details.
  • enable the history of connections.
  • enable the authentication of the users via a LDAP directory. In this case, you will have to enter the address of the server, the port number and the LDAP version used.
Notes:
  • If the data files of user groupware have been configured for your client, they must be selected when preparing the setup. Therefore, the list of setup files must be customized.
  • If the groupware files have not been configured, only the Supervisor user will exist during the first start of the application.
Tip: If you do not configure the different use levels of user groupware for your clients, we recommend that you provide them with a document listing all the controls found in your windows or pages in order to get an optimized configuration.
