I have the following Code in one of the push buttons

CLIENT_HOST('Net Send TestUser "Hello"',no_screen);


How will I know if it has been successfully executed or not?

I tried using

If Not Form_Success then


But it did not work.In 6i I was using Host command and it was working fine.I tried it in 10g but it always shows successfull.

Tested :

I tried sending a net send command to a user who is not logged on the network,It just stops at the client host command.I also put a message after the client host , but its not going past the client_host.

Use the 'user_exit' command.

Sorry, missed the 'client' bit.

Place your code into a script and call it. Inside that script either write to the database or create a file. Then, when back in the form test the database or existance of the file.

Hi David,

With what I understood from your message I should create script file like a .bat file and in that file write the command for net send and then a command to create a temp file in the same folder. then from forms i should check for the existance of that temp file. right?

If I need to pass parameters to the net send command like

Declare
  var varchar2(100);
Begin
  var:= 'Net Send '||:block1.user1||' "Hello "';
  CLIENT_HOST(var,no_screen);
End;


How in the above case will i write the script file?

Can't you write the parameters to file and pipe that file into the script that you write?

David

Sorry. Typo.

Allright..for everyone who has read this topic, I have found a solution to my problem.

I created a function

FUNCTION My_Host_Cmd(VAL varchar2)
RETURN BOOLEAN IS
BEGIN
   client_host(val);
   return TRUE;

EXCEPTION 
WHEN OTHERS THEN
   return FALSE;

END;


In place of the below code

var := 'cmd /c NET SEND '||:BLOCK1.USER_NAME||' " '||:BLOCK1.MESSAGE_SENT||' "';
CLIENT_HOST(var);
If Not Form_Success then

I am using

var := 'cmd /c NET SEND '||:BLOCK1.USER_NAME||' " '||:BLOCK1.MESSAGE_SENT||' "';
IF not My_Host_Cmd(var) then 


This solves the problem.

I have no idea. Please confirm that you have used 'message;pause' pairs to prove that this is the line that is failing. The way I see it is that the 'NET' command is returning an error code or doing something else in terms of the browser window. For me, this is a MS problem. Have you tried running the 'NET' command via a batch file and see what happens, or via a Java script and see what happens?

Thanks David for your reply. I have solved the problem. The problem was in the webutil.pll file. I do not know what it was, but i just detached the pll file ,moved it to another location and recompiled it and again attached it back to the form. It worked .... No explanation.
