New Capabilities In 4.2.0m (Apr. 18, 99):

  1. "Report a Problem..." menu item was added to the Argus ONE Help menu. When selected,
    Argus ONE opens the on-line help system and points you to the problem reporting page.
    This page contains a form that automatically lists your complete registration record and the
    Argus ONE version you are using. Other relevant information you supply when you first send
    a question or report a problem is automatically saved for you by Argus ONE so that the next time
    you report a problem or send a question you do not need to reenter it. The form also enables you
    to place a file on our ftp site for the Argus Tech Support team. Please remember to zip all files before
    uploading it to the site.
    The Report a Problem page can also be accessed through the Support item in the on-line help
    main navigation frame.

  2. New Functions for the PIE developer
    A set of new functions was added for PIE developers. These functions extend PIE developers'
    the ability to customize Argus ONE and more closely interact with it. A full description of the
    functions is available in the ANECB.h file.

  5. The expression dialog is now accessible from the dynamic Text objects in Maps layers
  6. Dynamic Text objects in Maps layers now allow several @ expression in one text object. Each expression must be enclosed by @ characters.

  7. New Functions for the PIE developer
    A set of new functions were added for PIE developers. These functions extend PIE developers'
    ability to customize Argus ONE and more closely interact with it. A full description of the
    functions is available in the ANECB.h file.

New Capabilities In 4.2.0h (Feb. 10, 99):

  1. New Triangular Mesh Generation.
    Triangular meshes can now be generated from any collection of points.
    1. To create a mesh from points
      1. Make sure the set of points is in a data layer.
      2. Activate the Tri mesh layer in which you wish the mesh to be generated.
      3. From the Edit menu select the Read Mesh From Layer... menu item
      4. From the dialog select the data layer containing the points to be transformed
        to a mesh.

    2. Purpose
      1. To allow for importing meshes for which only node information exists
      2. To allow meshing where all points must be nodes
    3. Algorithm used
      The meshing is conducted using the 624 ACM algorithm which is also used
      in other instances in Argus ONE such as in data layers.
    4. Limitations
      If the domain described by the points is concave (not convex) elements
      which lie outside the domain might be created. Such elements may
      be manually removed.

  2. New Global Variables Capabilities.
    1. Automatic updating of global variables.
      1. When changing the names of global variables, any expressions referring
        to the globlas will be updated to reflect the globals new names
      2. If an expression assigned to a global variable references a layer or a layer
      3. parameter and these are changed, the global variable's expression will be
        automatically updated to reflect the change.
    2. Copying, Pasting, Importing and Exporting Global Variables
      Four buttons have been added to the Global Variables dialog to allow for communicating
      global variables to and from Argus ONE. This is useful when large numbers of global
      variables are used. This is many time the case when many constants or coefficients are
      required for the definition of a problem or a model.
      1. Global variables can be copied to the clipboard - Copy button copies all the variables
        including their name, type, layer association and value.
      2. Global variables can be pasted from the clipboard into the Global Variables
        dialog. To see the format, copy the global variables to the clipboard and paste
        them into a text editor.
      3. Global variables can be exported into an external ASCII file - file format is identical
        to the copy/paste format
      4. Global variables can be imported from an external ASCII file - file format is identical
        to the copy/paste format

  3. Export Template Error Log File
    When errors are encountered during the execution of an export template, Argus ONE will automatically
    create an export error log file and list the errors in the file. The file is created in the same directory the
    exported files are created. The file name is always Export.err

  4. Registration and Activation
    The registration and activation processes have been improved. New capabilities were added to
    support registration and activation of commercial PIEs.
    1. More specific error messages are presented when problems with the portability enabler
      are encountered.
    2. A new registration dialog appear when the user runs Argus ONE with a yet not activated
    3. New functionality in the Registration Dialog
      1. New Copy and Paste buttons which enable registering and activating the license
        by simply pasting the codes emailed by the Argus registration system. If you need
        to send your license details to Argus just click the copy button and paste in the email
        message you are sending Argus. If you register a new license, add modules or
        commercial PIEs just copy the registration block from the email and use the paste
        button to paste the information into the registration dialog fields.
      2. If the license is a Network license the letter N in parentheses appears to the left of
        the registration code to designate that this is a network license.
      3. A new filed is added for an activation code for commercial PIEs. The 48 digits
        code contains the activation for all the commercial PIEs purchased by the customer.
    4. Network licenses now perform Logout when a user quits Argus ONE.

  5. New Functions for the PIE developer
    A set of new functions were added for PIE developers. These functions extend PIE developers'
    capabilities to customize Argus ONE and more closely interact with Argus ONE.
    1. New options for existing functions:
      1. ANECB: ANE_PropertyGet: new property: "Project Name"
      2. ANECB: ANE_LayerPropertyGet: new property: "Name"
      3. ANECB: ANE_LayerParameterPropertyGet: new properties: "Type", "TypeStr", "ParamType"
    2. New functions:
      1. ANECB: ANE_LayerGetObjectInfo,
      2. ANE_ContourObjectGetNumVertices
      3. ANE_ContourObjectGetNthVertexLocation
      4. ANE_DataPointObjectGetLocation,
      5. ANE_NodeObjectGetLocation
      6. ANE_ElementObjectGetNumNodes
      7. ANE_ElementObjectGetNthNodeLocation
      8. ANE_BlockObjectGetLocation
      9. ANE_ProgressSetTitle
      10. ANE_GetNumLayers
      11. ANE_LayerGetHandleByIndex

Fixed In 4.2.0h:

  1. Fixed NodeAboveContour() to returns true if the contour is perfectly horizontal or vertical
    and coincides with the contour's bounding rectangle.
  2. Fix possible divide by zero in EffectiveValue() function
  3. Fixed a bug when a contour with integer parameter was read, but the input contained a decimal point
  4. Manual Calculation: fix a bug that changed the manual calculation flag ONLY when colors were on

New Capabilities In 4.2.0g (Dec. 26, 98):

  1. The contour diagram now supports a new contouring algorithm.
    1. The 626 ACM algorithm was adopted and is now used as the default algorithm. The former
      Linear algorithm is still supported.
      The 626 algorithm takes into account first and second derivatives and thus produces better
      results especially where large or small gradients are present.
    2. The 626 algorithm may fail when the contours go through the data points. To overcome
      this problem change the Minimum of the range or the Delta.
    3. A menu was added to the Contour Diagram dialog box to allow selection of the 626 or the
      Linear contouring algorithms. The 626 can be used with either Argus ONE internal layer
      triangulation (better) or the 626 triangulation. Using the layer triangulation assures that
      contours are not created outside the domain or inside holes within the domain.
    4. We want to thank Dr. Richard Winston for suggesting the use of this algorithm.

  2. Excluding a range of values from the 3D, Contour, Color and Velocity diagrams.
    1. You may now exclude a number or a range of numbers from being contoured.
      This differs from just setting the Min and Max values for the diagrams. The data points
      having values which are excluded by the Exclude range are actually omitted from the set of
      points before a triangulation is performed.
      This option was especially added to support results from models which use numbers
      (i.e. 9999., 1e+06, etc.) to specify special conditions.
    2. A check box, a menu and a text edit box were added to allow you to toggle the option, to
      set the range and to set the value accordingly.

  3. For PIE Developers: Contour Diagram now parses the following fields' values in
    the Visualization Definition Language (VDL):
    1. Minimum
    2. Maximum
    3. Delta
    4. Calculate Automatically status flag
    5. Contouring algorithm
    6. Smooth status flag
    7. Show values flag

  4. The Calculate Automatically check box status in 3D, Contour, Color and Velocity diagrams is
    now saved within the project file.

  5. Project files (.mmb) are now saved in native binary format. This reduces file sizes and shortens
    save and load operations.

  6. A "Visit Argus' Web Site" menu item was added under the Help menu. Selecting this menu item
    points your browser to the Argus web site. If the version you use is not the latest one, your browser
    will be pointed to the Updates page.

  7. When toggling to Manual Calculation, values of objects are calculated only when they are visible,
    thus improving responsiveness.

  8. A new locking option for parameters enables to prevent the parameters from being evaluated by
    color. This can be used to reduce the number of parameters presented under the Color popup
    menu in the Tool palette. It is also a valuable option for the prevention of calculation of parameters
    which require order of n^2 calculations (n being the number of objects) such as Count() functions.
    The Don't Eval Color menu item was added to the Locking options menu. It is available as part of
    the Layer Description Language (LDL) for PIE developers.

  9. PC specific CR/LF handling improves handling of text during copy, paste and import/export.

  10. New Alert added to report printing problems including when a printer is not defined.

Fixed In 4.2.0g:

  1. Fix double-highlighting of layers in the Layers Floater if some groups are collapsed.
  2. Fixes in post-processing objects' legend:
    1. Long legends are shortened (re-classified) so that they do not overlap the title.
    2. Long legends are shortened (re-classified) so that they do not get truncated by the
      object's border.
    3. Legend values now exactly follow the minimum value and step.
    4. Zero (0) is now always presented as 0 in the legend.
    5. Linear contouring algorithm now properly handles contour's endpoints with values of -1
    6. Linear contouring algorithm now properly handles values that should not be contoured.
  3. Toggling out of Allow Intersection mode will now place an Alert if some contours intersect
    and will not perform the operation. The tool in toolbar will remain in Allow Intersection mode.
  4. Goto Block fixed to support inverted coordinates.
  5. Text objects in Map type layers now work again
  6. Fix problems in CalcAtContour/Element/Node/Block(), IsNA(), IsNAN() functions when
    accessing objects in other layers.
  7. Large integers are now parsed as doubles so that significant digits are preserved.
    (for PIE developers)
  8. Fix a crash when a PIE deleted a parameter that was referenced by another parameter not
    prefixed by "layer."
  9. Fix a bug that caused grid blocks that accessed information layers to yield wrong results
    under Manual Calculation
  10. Fix conversion of circles to polygons to prevent crash when meshing circular domain

New Capabilities In 4.2.0f:

  1. A new dialog which lists general information about Information and Data type Layers was added.
    The dialog lists the number of contours, vertices, data points and other relevant information.
    To open, pull down the Layer Info menu item from the Navigation menu

  2. Registering Argus ONE is simplified using the clipboard content. Copy the sequence of strings
    sent to you by Argus into the clipboard. If you have not yet registered, on launching Argus ONE,
    the registration dialog box is opened where all fields are set accordingly.

    Argus ONE Registartion Info Begin >>>
    UserName: John Doe
    Organization: JD Consultants, Ltd.
    RegCode: 111222333444

    3. Support for Windows NT 4 Service Pack 4
    4. Support for USB keys (available only for Win 95, 98 and NT 5)
      The USB portability enablers resolve any printing or parallel port
      device conflicts as they use the USB ports and not the parallel ports.

  4. Parameters types can be locked in the Layers Dialog. PIE developers can also access the
    locking status through the Layer Description Language (LDL)

New Capabilities In 4.1.0d (January 21, 1998):

The following layer functions have been added. These functions operate on the
objects in the layer they are called from. That is, each object in the layer from which
the function is called will evaluate the expression and the sum of the values for all
the object will be returned.

Fixed In 4.1.0d:

  1. Removing an extra redraw in the main window, which occurred when moving (promoting/demoting)
    a parameter (up/down) in the layers dialog, improved responsiveness.
  2. Text objects using system font now align to the top of the object's frame.
  3. When a layer calculates its color range, $N/A is now ignored and is not regarded as zero.

  7. Importing a grid which extends outside the current drawing size now extends the drawing size.
  8. Grid default export always exports "1" for number of parameters (even when not exporting data)
  9. Grid import properly handles files with a missing angle field (0 is assumed) and files missing
    both angle number of parameters fields.
  10. Export template: Loop for: Objects in layer L[i] will not crash if layer L[i] does not exist.

New Capabilities In 4.1.0:

  1. Fonts
    1. - All annotation texts in post-processing objects now use a system font instead
        of Argus ONE vector font.
    2. - When annotating with the System font text tool the font type, size and style can
         be selected from the fonts available in your system
  2. All post-processing objects now feature a title option.
  3. 3D Surface can be Rotated On-Screen

Fixed In 4.1.0:

  1. The positions of tick marks on post-processing objects' X axis are always accurate.
  2. Tick marks appear outside of the coordinates.
  3. Paste or Import of a single point or of point contours aligned on a vertical/horizontal line
    does not crash the application.
  4. On post-processing dialog boxes, when having many layers or parameters, selecting items under
    the "More..." submenu did not work. Dialog box now uses a list instead of pop-up menu to avoid
    the problem.
