Cannot display user-defined columns when using a socket manager.

Postby rmitola » Wed Jun 10, 2015 7:02 pm

Hello; I believe I may have found a bug with LogMX.

I am currently writing my own parser with three user-defined fields. When I use my parser with a file on my local file-system, it adds the three columns to the display. However, when I use my parser with the socket manager, it does not add these columns. Also, when I right click on the column area, the option to check these columns' visibility is not available (as it is with the local file-system manager). I also know the data for these columns is surely being registered, as when I click on an entry I am able to see my user-defined fields along with their data in the "Entry details" pane. I just can't get them to show up as columns.

Maybe this is a bug, or am I missing a step in getting additional columns with the socket manager?

Thanks!

Hello,

You are right, this is a bug we just discovered today, on this forum: viewtopic.php?p=5614 (a workaround suitable for you is proposed in my answer, using a Java Class Parser).
This bug is now fixed in LogMX v5.4.0 which will be released in July (I will let you know when LogMX v5.4.0 is released by posting a message here).

By the way, using the "Entry details" pane is a very good idea, I will propose this idea to the author of the other forum post. It also makes me think of another idea: exporting all entries to a new tab ("Export" feature), this way all columns are displayed in the new tab.

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
Xavier

Thanks for the quick response. It is good to know this will be updated soon; for now the entry details pane will suffice.

Please let me know if you have any other trouble or question.
