New Base64 Example application for PowerBuilder & Appeon Released!

** Hot News **

STD Foundation Classes

New BASE64 Example Application released!

     Software Tool & Die Inc. today are very pleased to announce a new Base64 Encoding / Decoding example application for PowerBuilder / Appeon that was built from the latest STD Integrated Framework (release: March 2016) ...

     Base64 encoding and decoding is a critical  feature when processing XML files using PowerBuilder's PBDOM feature, using an XML DataWindow or interacting with Web Services that pass binary data back and forth. The binary data will be in base64 encoded text and unusable to your PB application unless decoded (converted back) to its original binary state. Conversely, binary data that your PB application needs to send to other applications in XML format will need to be converted (encoded) into base64 text.

    The Base64 Example application utilizes standard Microsoft Base64 API's supplied by the MS-Windows O/S.These API's are now embedded in the framework's "nc_crypto_master" object class and easily called from your PowerScript code, as follows:
  • lo_crypto.of_base64_stringtobinary ( lblb_image , ls_base64 )

    The Base64 Example - along with the STD Integrated Framework - is also written to support the Appeon Web product. Thus, the Base64 Example application can also be deployed to your favourite Web Browser and executed as a web application.

    You can download the Base64 Example application from the STD Framework's website by clicking here! You can also download either of the free open source STD frameworks for PowerBuilder and Appeon by clicking here!

Regards ... Chris
