TC9.21a Content plugin interface version

Post by *tbeu » 2019-01-08, 19:20 UTC

The changelog of the content plugin help reads:
2016.05.08 Release specifications version 2.20
2016.05.08 New type ft_fulltextw added
However, version 2.11 still is passed to the ContentSetDefaultParams function using TC 9.21a.

Code: Select all

dps	0x00138b5c {size=272 PluginInterfaceVersionLow=11 PluginInterfaceVersionHi=2 ...}	ContentDefaultParamStruct *
size	272	int
PluginInterfaceVersionLow	11	unsigned long
PluginInterfaceVersionHi	2	unsigned long
which means for the content plugin that ft_fulltextw must not be reported as field type since only supported by 2.20 or later.

You should indeed report ft_fulltext for plugin fields, and only return ft_fulltextw during the actual search if the plugin version is 2.11 or newer.

I believe the changlog should be fixed from
2016.05.08 Release specifications version 2.20
to
2016.05.08 Release specifications version 2.11

It also is wrong in the interface description of ContentGetSupportedField, see for example section Return value of https://tbeu.github.io/WDX-SDK/contentgetsupportedfield.htm
ft_fulltextw New in 2.11: Same as ft_fulltext, but with UTF-16 encoding. May be returned instead of ft_fulltext.

OK, I have updated the help.

1. What's new fixed 2.2 -> 2.11

2. ContentGetSupportedField:
ft_fulltextw New in 2.11: Same as ft_fulltext, but with UTF-16 encoding. You can report ft_fulltext in ContentGetSupportedField, and then either ft_fulltext or ft_fulltextw in ContentGetValue, depending on the file.

If you want to host the help, then please change ie5.css to use larger fonts than x-small and small. Why? I need to use these so the help interface shows enough data. But on a web page, larger fonts should be used to get readable text, at least in Chrome and Firefox. Thanks.
