CHT Batch Bot Revisions

HNDMAILSMTP.EXE has been revised slightly to display the results of a send or a failure to send by popping up the results log and help text file using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE.

A new [OPT] parameter "--silent" has been added to suppress the popup result log. Use this in send situations where multiple email addresses are used, or HNDMAILNET.EXE is used in a loop to send multiple email addresses.

HNDMAILMAPI.EXE has been revised slightly to conform to the same parameter set used by HNDMAILSMTP.EXE. It now also pops up the results log file and help text file using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE.

A new [OPT] parameter "--silent" has been added to suppress the popup result log. Use this in send situations where multiple email addresses are used, or HNDMAILNET.EXE is used in a loop to send multiple email addresses.

HNDMAILCDO.EXE has been revised slightly to conform to the same parameter set used by HNDMAILSMTP.EXE. It now also pops up the results log file and help text file using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE.

A new [OPT] parameter "--silent" has been added to suppress the popup result log. Use this in send situations where multiple email addresses are used, or HNDMAILNET.EXE is used in a loop to send multiple email addresses.

HNDMAILNET.EXE has been revised slightly to conform to the same parameter set used by HNDMAILSMTP.EXE It now also pops up the results log file and help text file using CHTSNAPEDIT.EXE.

A new [OPT] parameter "--silent" has been added to suppress the popup result log. Use this in send situations where multiple email addresses are used, or HNDMAILNET.EXE is used in a loop to send multiple email addresses.

HNDZIPNET.EXE has been revised slightly.

A new [OPT] parameter "--silent" has been added to suppress the popup result log. Use this in send situations where multiple files are zipped in a loop from a Clarion application or a windows batch file.

HNDSLFCMD.EXE has been revised to perform a 100% secure-compressed upload when files are dragged and dropped on its icon via Windows Explorer. Configure one or more of its 10 configuration dialogs, with server IP and username, password and target directory, and then select that dialog when asked after drag-dropping files on HNDSLFCMD.EXE's desktop icon.

Use this with one or more HNDSLFSV.EXE (server) apps configured with server UserName/Password required before upload files are accepted. All dropped files are placed in the server directory or below the server directory as indicated on the HNDSLFCMD.EXE's target directory field.

Secure HTTP File Transfer

We've redesigned CHT file client example application HNDSFCL.APP to provide fully-secured file upload and download services to HNDSLFSV.APP or any app you derive from HNDSLFSV.APP.

First of all, HNDSLFCL.APP (as before) requires you to use a server-level, username and password to log into HNDSLFSV.APP. This denies upload/download permission to HNDSLFCL.APP unless the operator has the username, password values established on the HNDSLFSV.APP variant with which it is being paired.

Next, the client now has an "Encrypt/Compress" switch which when checked, encrypts and compresses the upload/download file using an internally generated key. All HTTP header values of any importance to transfer security are also encrypted. The result is transfer security equivalent to using HTTPS tunnelling via HTTP. AND, automatic file compression increases transfer speed by a factor of X3 or X4.

Transfer files safetly to local network computers, WAN computers and across the internet with assurance that your transfer information is safely encrypted.

Second of all, HNDSLFCL.APP (new feature) now has multi-file capability. Select one or more files from your disk and upload or download them to HNDSLFSV.APP.

CHT SNAP Revisions

CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE has been revised and reversioned

CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE has been revised and reversioned in this build to account for the possibility that the encrypted configuration values UserName and UserPassword may have been stored some time in the past as non-Base64 values.

In this build, non-Base 64 values stored earlier in these two configuration fields, are ignored and treated as blank field values.

Running the configuration dialog with command line: CHTSNAPSMTP --config will therefore ignore illegal values and present a blank entry control for these fields.

Command line : CHTSNAPSMTP --rcpt

Configures and activates for read-receipt request from the email recipient

Command line: CHTSNAPSMTP --norcpt

Configures and de-activiates read-receipt request from the email recipient Version number advanced to 23.19.08.04

Command line docs for CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE now are as follows:

** CHTSNAPSMTP.EXE ** (c) 2019 The Clarion Handy Tools Page
-- Three or four DOS command-line inputs are required
-- in order to send text or html mail with optional attachments:
-- CHTSNAPSMTP "TO" "SUBJECT" "MSG.TXT" OR "MSG.HTML" ["ATTACH.FILE"]
-- Inputs with spaces or extended characters use double quotes.
-- Otherwise, inputs may be provided without surrounding double quotes.
-- Individual inputs must be separated by one or more spaces.
-- ATTACH.FILE is optional. It represents optional attachment file(s).
-- CHT Snap SMTP must be configured before mail can be sent.
-- Type "CHTSNAPSMTP --config" at the DOS prompt to configure.
-- Mail results are written to the console and to chtsnapsmtp.log.
-- MSG.TXT or MSG.HTML and ATTACH.FILE [OPT] may include full paths
    to folders.
-- Multiple TO addresses may be separated with either semi-colons or commas.
-- Multiple attachments may be separated with either semi-colons or commas.
-- Issue "--rcpt" alone on command line prior to sending for read-receipt.

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE has been reversioned

CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE has been reversioned. We tested it at our end to confirm that it works OK on a Windows 64 Professional with the two different email client settings that we had available:

#1 Windows Live Mail = OK,
#2 Windows Outlook (2013) = Ok
Version number advanced to 23.19.08.01

Command line docs for CHTSNAPMAPI.EXE now are as follows:

-- Three or four command-line inputs are required:
-- CHTSNAPMAPI "TO" "SUBJECT" "MESG.TXT OR MESG.HTML" ["ATTACH.FILE"]
-- Inputs with spaces or extended characters must be surrounded by
    double quotes.
-- Otherwise, inputs may be provided without surrounding double quotes.
-- ATTACH.FILE is optional. This option represents optional attachment file(s).

Command line docs for CHTSNAPZIP.EXE now are as follows:
** CHTSNAPZIP.EXE - A CHT Snap Utility ** Version: [23.19.08.01]
** (c) 2019 The Clarion Handy Tools Page - www.cwhandy.ca
-- Zip That Recurses Subdirectories Accepts 3 Inputs:
-- chtsnapzipzr❯ ❮zipfilename❯ ❮rootdir
-- Folder names are included in the zip.

-- in the same directory as the CHTSNAPZIP.EXE executable.
-- [\mask] An optional mask [e.g. \hnd*.clw] to filter files.

Query Builder Icons

ExplorerBrowse (EXPB), HandyMarkerBrowse (HMB) and ListBoxBrowseExtender (LBX) all have template code to automatically check ApplicationImagesEx check boxes corresponding to 4 icons displayed on the CHT QueryBuilder interface. This includes the images inside your exe. These switches can also be checked manually by simply visiting the ApplicationImagesEx template and checking the boxes.

ApplicationImagesEx (AIEX), lets you change the images inlcuded by the template beside each of the checkboxes. In this way, the images on CHT QueryBuilder can be controlled by the developer.

In this build update we've also added similar template code (as in EXPB, HMB and LBX) to LocatorOverRideControl (LORC) template. Now all CHT browse templates will provide easy, automatic, customization of the CHT QueryBuilder interface from our templates.

Secure HTTP File Transfer

We've redesigned CHT file client example application HNDSFCL.APP to provide fully-secured file upload and download services to HNDSLFSV.APP or any app you derive from HNDSLFSV.APP.

First of all, HNDSLFCL.APP (as before) requires you to use a server-level, username and password to log into HNDSLFSV.APP. This denies upload/download permission to HNDSLFCL.APP unless the operator has the username, password values established on the HNDSLFSV.APP variant with which it is being paired.

Next, the client now has an "Encrypt/Compress" switch which when checked, encrypts and compresses the upload/download file using an internally generated key. All HTTP header values of any importance to transfer security are also encrypted. The result is transfer security equivalent to using HTTPS tunnelling via HTTP.

The key changes with every upload, no hard-coded key, and any single key is never used more than once.

Further, automatic file compression increases transfer speed by a factor of X3 or X4.

Transfer files safetly to local network computers, WAN computers and across the internet with assurance that your transfer information is safely encrypted.

Second of all, HNDSLFCL.APP (new feature) now has multi-file capability. Select one or more files from your disk and upload or download them to HNDSLFSV.APP.

Easy, Fast, Secure. Kiss insecure FTP goodbye forever.
