GS-13029 Error decoding %1 using codec %2 (encoding=%3)

The file contents cannot be decoded with the codec, the encoding specified in the environment does not correspond to the file and it cannot be read. Change the encoding so that it supports all the file characters.

GS-13030 Error encoding %1 using codec %2 (encoding=%3)

The file contents cannot be encoded with the codec, the encoding specified in the environment does not correspond to the file and it cannot be written to. Change the encoding so that it supports all the file characters.

GS-13031 Missing codec for encoding %1

There is no default text codec for the specified encoding. Use another alias for this encoding, update encodingMap.xml, or add a new POSIX charmap.

GS-13032 Malformed BLOCK/POINT start tag

The BLOCK/POINT start tag has a wrong syntax. Restore the right syntax.

GS-13033 Unexpected characters outside text blocks : %1

Some characters have changed outside the topmost block, which is not supported. Insert a new toplevel block around the code you want to modify and regenerate the code.

GS-13034 Missing argument -code in the $(BlockPoint) command

The $(BlockPoint) command is used with multiple generated files, the -code argument is mandatory. Add the -code argument.

GS-13035 Missing files in the $(BlockPoint) command

The $(BlockPoint) command is used without generated files arguments. Add the generated files list.

GS-13036 %1 contains code not managed in the $(BlockPoint) command

Some file managed by the .code were not updated by the $(BlockPoint) command, the .code is not completely up to date. Add the missing files to the command line in the build rule or remove the old file from the .code if they are no longer useful.

GS-13037 .code file version %1 is not supported

The current version of Genero Studio does not support this version of .code file.

Upgrade Genero Studio.

GS-13038 .code file encoding %1 differs with current one

The .code file encoding is not the same as the build encoding, the resulting files may be incorrect.

Change the build encoding (the LANG variable for example) to match the .code file encoding or rewrite the .code file with the current encoding.

GS-13039 Resolve conflict before compiling

The code file id does not match the source file id, thus a resulting conflict file. You must merge the differences manually. This may occur after updating from the SVN repository.

Merge the .conflict file and the source file, then delete the .conflict file.

GS-13040 Cannot write conflict file

The code file id does not match the source file id, thus a resulting conflict file which cannot be written to the disk.

Check the directory permissions.

GS-13041 Ignored unknown attribute '%1' on element '%2'

In the settings.agconf file, an attribute has been defined where it is not expected.

If the attribute is not required, remove it. If the attribute is required but has an error (a spelling error, for example), fix the error.

GS-13042 '-depth' argument of $(generate) command is deprecated, use 'depth' attribute on 'Item' elements in settings.agconf.

Some Business Application deprecated feature has been used.

Refer to the migration notes in the manual to update the project. In this example, modify the settings.agcong to add the depth, and edit the build rules to remove the depth.

GS-13043 Invalid Template directory '%1'

The Business Application template directory setting is set incorrect.

Solution:
  • Remove the template directory setting if useless.
  • Change the path for a valid directory containing Business Application settings.
GS-13044 %1 %2 index out of range (%3) current index is %4

Business Application build command $(BlockPoint) failed, there are inconsistencies between the source files and the code files. This error should not happen during normal operations, but may appear in case of errors during the process of migration between different versions.

If you receive this message, contact support for help during the migration.

GS-13100 The 'Open Mode' property is not set.

The Open Mode property value is empty. The available values are: DISPLAY, MODIFY, ADD, SEARCH and EMPTY. Check settings.agconf and ensure that the initialValue attribute of the <DynamicProperty> node having name = "openMode" contains one of the available values.

GS-13101 The 'Action' property is mandatory.

The Action property is mandatory when a relation is defined between modules (4fdm to 4fdm) or between module and zoom (4fdm to 4fdz) and the relation type=Relation. Check that the Type property of the relation is Relation. Check that the Action property of the relation is not empty.

GS-13102 No report file is defined. Default layout will be used.

If the Report File property is empty, the default layout (ASCII mode) will be used when a relation is defined between a module and a report (4fdm to 4rd) and the relation type=ReportRelation. This is a warning message. Check that the Type property of the relation is ReportRelation. Check that the Report File property of the relation is not empty.

GS-13103 The 'Type' property of the relation is invalid.

The type of relation is not valid between entities: module (4fdm), program (4prg), zoom (4fdz), report (4rd). Check the Type property of the supported relation and ensure that the relation is supported.

GS-13104 The relation is not supported.

Check the entity relations.

GS-13105 Any relation to a program is not supported.

Check the entity relations.

GS-13106 The 'Report file' property contains an absolute path. Prefer a relative path.

Absolute paths are not recommended because the project will not be portable. Use a relative path. Be sure that your Genero environment variables are correctly set to search for your resource files.

GS-13107 A unique key field can only be defined on the master table.

All fields making up the unique key of a record must be fields of the master table of the record. Uncheck the Unique Key property of fields which are not of the master table of the record.

GS-13108 Duplicate table name in the FROM clause.

The joins between a pair of tables must have the same join operator. Check that there are not multiple join operators for the same pair of tables.

GS-13109 Field updated via ascending lookup is mandatory in the record.

The field that is updated via an ascending lookup is mandatory in the master table of the record. Add the field to the master table of the record. Currently, the field is only defined in the Query clause of the record. If you don't want to see this field on your form, use the phantom widget. Or, delete the lookup property of the field which triggers the ascending lookup.

GS-13110 Multiple master records are not supported. Define a relation between records.

When there are several records in a managed Form, only one can be the master. This error occurs when at least one record is not linked by a relation. In the Records view, check that all records are linked by a relation.

GS-13111 Invalid relation, primaryField and foreignField must have same number of fields.

A relation must have the same number of primary fields and foreign fields. Modify the relation fields so that a primary field corresponds to each foreign field.

GS-13112 The 'zoom' action in the Toolbar/Topmenu won't be generated, an action is already named 'zoom'.

Rename your action to a name other than zoom.

GS-13113 Several relations ($1) use the same action name ($2 - $3).

Several relations use the same combination of Action/Source Record property values.

$1 - Number of relations having the same combination of Action/Source Record.

$2 - Action name.

$3 - List of record names.

Rename Action or change the Source Record to have a unique couple.

GS-13114 SQL statement 'FULL OUTER JOIN' is vendor proprietary SQL syntax.
GS-13115 Invalid filename. A filename must be a BDL identifier.

The filename contains invalid characters. Identifiers must confirm to these rules:

  • It must include at least one character, without any limitation in size.
  • Only ASCII letters, digits, and underscore ( _ ) symbols are valid.
  • No blanks, hyphens, and other non-alphanumeric characters.
  • The initial character must be a letter or an underscore.
  • It is recommended to always write identifiers in lower case.

Rename the file to a valid file name. If the file was generated, renaming the object may not be enough; you will have to rename the file itself to match the new object name in Project Manager.

GS-13116 Several comboboxes use the same initializer name.

Make all initializer names unique.

GS-13117 A ComboBox is possibly not initialized.

Set the initializer or the items property of the ComboBox.

GS-13118 Table $1 unused in query.

A database table is used in the record, but there is no join for it in the query. Add a join for the table in the record query.

GS-13119

Duplicated joins are forbidden in the query.

Remove the duplicated joins.

GS-13120 Building $1 generates an XML file (version=$2) which cannot be handled by the templates (version=$3).

The build process of the file ($1) has been aborted because the intermediate XML file has a version ($2) which mismatches the template version ($3).

Use a valid template set defined in Application Generator Preferences. Verify build rules for the appropriate file type.

GS-13121 The $1 property is not supported.

In the Business Application diagram, the openMode or defaultMode property defined on a relation between a CRUD Form and a Zoom Form is not supported. Only DISPLAY and SEARCH values are currently supported on a Zoom. Change the openMode or defaultMode property to a supported value.

GS-13122

The $1 property is missing in settings.agconf.

The build process has been aborted because the $1 dynamicProperty is missing in the settings.agconf configuration file.

Check settings.agconf and confirm:

  • The <DynamicProperty> node with name=”$1” is defined in the <BusinessApplication> section.
  • The dynamicProperties attribute of the item raising the error contains $1.
GS-13123 No CRUD function will be generated for the $1 table because no primary key has been defined.

A primary key needs to be defined for the given table in order to have its CRUD functions generated when compiling the database schema.

GS-13124 Record functionalities are incompatible with the $1 property value ($2).
On a CRUD Form, if the openMode or defaultMode property is:
  • ADD, the master record must have the functionality canAdd activated.
  • EMPTY, the master record must have the functionality canEmpty activated.
  • DISPLAY, all records must have the functionality canDisplay activated.
  • MODIFY, at least one record must have the functionality canModify activated.
On a CRUD Form or Zoom Form, if the openMode or defaultMode property is SEARCH, at least one record must have the functionality canSearch activated.

On incoming relations of a CRUD Form or Zoom Form, the openMode and defaultMode property must follow the same rules as those forms.

To fix the error, change the openMode or defaultMode property value or change the functionality of the record.

GS-13125 $1 doesn't exist or is not unique$2, please have a look in the XML intermediate file.

An XPath cannot be resolved. Check the XML intermediate file.

GS-13126 The number of source fields defined on the relation doesn't match the number of unique key fields defined in the destination item.

Change the number of source fields defined on the relation.

GS-13127 Destination fields defined on a relation to a zoom are unused in the code generation.

The destination fields defined on a Zoom relation will not appear in the generated 4gl code.

GS-13128 The table 'seqreg' is missing in your database schema, therefore SERIAL fields cannot be handled by the templates.

A database schema field of datatype SERIAL can only be handled by using the seqreg table. This table contains a list of table names and values, a value is the last SERIAL created for a given table name. In case the couple (table name, last value) does not exist, a new record will be created and the SERIAL value will start at 1.

Create the table seqreg in your database schema file.
GS-13129 Multiple SERIAL fields for the table $1 cannot be handled by the templates.

Only one SERIAL field can be managed per database table. This is inherent to the seqreg table.

Modify the table in you database schema file.
GS-13130 Business Application diagram is missing in the project.

Add a Business Application Diagram to the project.

GS-13131 Unique key must be a database primary or secondary key of the master table.

All fields making up the unique key of a record must be either a database primary key or secondary key of the master table (unique constraint).

Change the unique key property of fields which are not a database primary key or secondary key of the master table or update the 4dbx schema.

GS-13132 Missing master table for $1 record.

Select a table in the master table property.

GS-13133 The field $1 defined on the relation does not exist in Records view.

In the Business Application diagram, when a relation is defined between items, the Source Field and the Destination Field must exist in the Records view.

Check the Source Field and/or Destination Field property of the relation or open the appropriate item and add the missing fields.

GS-13134 Invalid relation, Source and Destination must have same number of fields.

In the Business Application diagram, a relation between Forms must have the same number of fields in the Source Field and Destination Field.

Check  the Source Field and/or Destination Field property of the relation.

GS-13136 The Service Name property is mandatory.

The property Service Name of a WebService item must have a value in the Business Application Diagram.

Set the Service Name property value.

GS-13137 The Namespace property is mandatory. The property Namepace of a WebService Server item in a Business Application diagram must have a value.

Set the Namespace property value.

GS-13138 Several web services use the same name.

Any web service registered to the same Web Service Server must have an unique name.

Ensure that the property Name of a web service is unique.

GS-13139 The $1 action is a reserved action name.

In the Business Application Diagram, when a relation is defined between items, the Action property can not be a reserved action name. The list of reserved action names is defined in the action defaults file (dbapp.4ad).

Set the value of the Action property to a non-reserved action name.

GS-13140 Unexpected TCL script error: $1

An unexpected internal error occured during code generation. Contact your local Four Js support center.

GS-13141 $1 - Check LANG variable or add entry in file encoding.tcl where $1 is the value of the unsupported encoding

The LANG environment variable is set, but the encoding part is either invalid (change the value of the LANG environment variable) or not present in the supported encoding array (add an entry in encoding.tcl).

GS-13142 All fields must be part of the same record.

Choose fields from the same record.

GS-13143 The record $1 defined on the relation does not exist in Records view.

In the Business Application diagram, when a relation is defined between items, the Record Source must exist in the Records view. Check the Source Record property of the relation or open the source entity and add the missing record.

GS-13144 The 'Source Record' property is missing.

The Source Record property is missing in the Business Application diagram. When a relation is defined between items, if the Row Bound property is checked on an outgoing relation, the Record Source must be defined if there is more than one record in the form. It is implicit if there is only one record.

Check the Source Record property of the relation or uncheck the Row Bound property.

GS-13145 The $1 functionality is not supported for $2 container on mobile devices.

Some functionality is not supported by the template. For example canAdd, canModify, and canSearch are not supported for tables.

Uncheck the functionality.

GS-13146 Several records $1 are candidate for the 'Source Record' property.

Remove the ambiguity and choose a record.

GS-13147 The 'Row Bound' property is not supported for GRID container.

Uncheck the Row Bound property or choose the table container in the form.

GS-13148 The 'Source Field' property is missing.

The position Source Field is required when the destination of the relation is a zoom.

GS-13149 The '$1' container is not supported on mobile devices.

Some containers such Tree and ScrollGrid are not supported on mobile devices. Change container to a supported container.

GS-13150 'Display, Add, Modify, Search are all disabled for record '$1'

This message is a warning, not an error. It simply tells you that all functionality is disabled for the record in question. Verify that having no functionality selected for the record is intentional.

GS-13151 'The '$1' aggregation function is not supported for this field'

Ensure the data type of the field is compatible with the aggregation function:

  • AVG and SUM can only be performed on Numeric fields.
  • COUNT and DISTINCT COUNT cannot be performed on a Byte field.
  • MAX and MIN cannot be performed on a Byte or Boolean field.
GS-13152 'Missing $1 file'

The Java file argument of the 'schemagen' tool is missing. This error can occur on a build of a ReportData file(.4rdj) with Java.

Ensure that the generated Java file exists.

GS-13153 '$1'

An error occurred when the external tool used to create the schema file was executing. This error can occur on a build of a ReportData file(.4rdj) with Java or C#.

If the build is using Java, the 'schemagen' tool failed.

If the build is using C#, one of the following processes failed:
  • The creation of the data source dll (csc.exe) used for the XML Schema Definition Tool.
  • The execution of the XML Schema Definition Tool (xsd.exe).
GS-13154 The '$1' property is unused in the code generation

In the Business Application diagram, a warning is raised when a property is unused in code generation.

Reset the unused property to the default value to remove this warning.

GS-13155 Database connection not generated in Program. The databaseName property is not set on first Form

If the databaseName property is not defined on the first form defined of the outgoing relation of a program, then that database connection is not generated in the program.

GS-13165 Outgoing Form from '$1' not implemented

In the Business Application diagram, a program has an outgoing relationship to an unimplemented form.

Implement the form.

GS-13166 Outgoing Web Service from '$1' not implemented

In the Business Application diagram, a Web Service Server has an outgoing relationship to an unimplemented Web Service.

Implement the Web Service.
