Thumbs up NEW: BaanERP Programmer's Guide on-line!

Hi all,

Finally we are 'de-cloaking' the 'birthday present' that I have mentioned a couple of times before. The on-line version of the BaanERP Programmer's Guide can be visited here: http://www.baanboard.com/programmers_manual_baanerp.

About a month ago we received a positive answer from Baan to our queries on allowing Baanboard to publish the full contents of the BaanERP programmer's guide. As we have many developer members and in many posts questions are asked about how and which function can be used in custom program scripts, we thought it would be useful to have this information at hand in an on-line format. Thanks to ~Vamsi for the original idea!
Not only do we offer now the complete manual but we will also update the contents on a regular basis ensuring that always the most-up-to-date information is available on baanboard.

A couple of weeks have passed since then and we have developed a basic content viewing functionality allowing each member to access the programmer's guide using alphabetical ordered keywords. The conversion from the original guide - a CHM or Windows compiled Help file - does not offer the exact same look and feel and functionality but we will continue working on improving it.

Consider this a first release from which we would like to expand further. Here are some of the possibilities:
  • a small keyword search engine
  • keyword auto-linking into forum posts
  • function notes
Note: following options are now implemented in the CMS version!
Any comments/feedback is - as usual - much appreciated. We hope you will find great value in this new addition to baanboard!

Note: please do not ask me (in PM or via email) to send you the original CHM help file. Any such request will be immediately ignored. Use the on-line pages for your development work!

Thumbs up I'm flabbergasted...

Or as people in my region like to say at such occasions:

Boah, ey!

From time to time I like being in Baan-Business!

Thumbs up In two words...

In credible


It is only one word but...
This is a really good new Forum's feature.

Also it seems that BaaN will soonly sponsor this board?
In fact many BaaN users are sponsoring BaaN contributing in this site. Because without users there is no BaaN.

Thank's both BaaN and BaaNBoard.

Also I think that hidden Knowledge is a future lost knowledge, and share it is make it grow and grow.

Thumbs up Wonderful!

Of course I noticed the library link right away.....not.

Anyway, this marks the beginning of a whole new era for this board. The added value of this option is enormous.

I hope this first "book" will be the start of an extensive repository of Baan documentation, facts and instructions.

This is exactly what this board, the Baan community and Baan as a company need. I fully agree with Alejandro that all parties will benefit from making information like this publicly available.

I also cheer on Baan's involvement in the board lately. It really makes me feel like we are finally on the same team, as it should be.
Sure, the support site is there, BWU is there, but somehow I feel I get a better response from places like this (well, there is nothing like this at the moment really).

Hats off guys.

Talking Update: shortcut keys

Hi all,

Just a quick update: I have added a set of 'quick links' or shortcuts on the Library page that will allow members to access the different alphabetical sub-sections in the Programmer's Guide more quickly. For those who do not need to see the 'Full Index' each time, it will be a bandwith and time saver!

Angry Leeching

Hi all,

Though putting the programmer's guide on-line was a success, it brought also some drawbacks with it. One being that we are faced with people trying to leech the whole contents with a web spidering or web ripping programme. We do not oppose this as such although it puts a strain on the server and will slow access down for other users. However, it becomes a problem when the leeching goes on for many many hours, ripping numerous copies from our site. This is not acceptable!

We prefer that people access the pages on-line and if they so wish download one copy for local use. Please remember that you will always find the most recent version on-line. If you fail to stay within these 'leeching' rules, you will be banned from baanboard.com.

Thanks for your understanding.

Table of Contents

Maybe I am being stupid, but I don't see a TOC.

Are there plans for one?

I would like to read it from the beginning, without trying to figure out which order things should be in.

Thanks

No, there will be no TOC. The closest thing to it would be the full alphabetical index. We hope to provide a search functionality though. Just one remark: I think you would have a hard time 'reading' the manual from start to end as it is really meant as a reference source.

Smile how to download?

Hi Patrick,

This is a great resource!
I would like to download a copy for those situations when I am without internet access. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks,
Ev

Ev,

Normally I would have to say ahum that you are supposed to come online each time you need the stuff. But we can't stop you from spidering the library. Just make sure you only download each page ONCE otherwise we'll hammer you

Thanks.

Thanks, Patrick. I was hoping there was a way to download it as a single file (preferably zipped) but failing that I'll just treat it as an online resource rather than take the time to download the whole thing page by page.

An updated version of the programmer's manual (v73_a_11) is now available in the library section.
