OpenEdge 12.2 support!

We are pleased to announce that we are not aware of any issues using the SmartComponent Library on OpenEdge 12.2. We hereby declare OpenEdge 12.2 fully supported for the SmartComponent Library as of the release of April 09th 2020.

.NET Framework Version 4.7

.NET 4.7 is not supported with OpenEdge 11.x, see: Is .NET 4.7 certified and supported for OpenEdge? 

Progress has reported severy issues with OpenEdge GUI for .NET and .NET 4.7: GUI .Net Application crashes after .Net upgrade to 4.7

When using the .NET Framework 4.7, please make sure, you upgrade to OpenEdge 11.6.4 or OpenEdge 11.7.2 or later. Also, it may be required to recompile the application on a PC running .NET Framework 4.7 when applications are also executed on a PC with .NET Framework 4.7.

Release Notes

Following the release of the OpenEdge 11.7 Release we have completed our testing of the SmartComponent Library on this release of Progress and are proud to announce formal support for the SmartComponent Library on OpenEdge 11.7 with the 2017-04-24 release of the SmartComponent Library. Generally we recommend customers on OpenEdge 11 to upgrade to OpenEdge 11.7 quickly. Starting the 2017-07-14 release we are supporting OpenEdge 11.7 Service Pack 1 (11.7.1).

Starting the 2015-10-09 release the Business Entity Designer will feature a start page with links to most recent release note articles on this site.

With SCL-751 we have adopted native Enums for OpenEdge 11.6. To activate this feature customers must add a definition to products.i. SCL-751 provides details for this.

With SCL-1113 we have modified the templates for SmartWindowForms and SmartTabFolderPages generated from the Business Entity Designer. We have removed the initialization of the viewer controls SmartTableIOState property (value was set to "NoDataSource" within the InitializeComponent method). Customers using their own set of templates should adopt the same fix to their templates.

OpenEdge 11.7.3 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.3 we have experienced the following issues: 

  • [SCL-2216] - 11.7.3 Visual Designer disabling properties of ABL user controls

The issue has been resolved by Progress Software with hotfix 007 for OpenEdge 11.7.3.

OpenEdge 11.7.2 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.2 we have experienced two issues: 

  • [SCL-2007] - Correct support for WebHandler in CcsServiceManager
  • [SCL-2008] - Closing SmartWindowForm causes crash on OpenEdge 11.7.2

We consider it mandatory for customers using OpenEdge 11.7.2 to use at least the release #44166@2017-11-27 of the SmartComponent Library. 

Due to an fix for

  • [SCL-1924] - SmartViewerControl: copy mechanism cannot cope with clob datatype

from Progress Software for in OpenEdge we further recommend all customers to apply this hotfix as well. 

New Versions of Proparse .NET Assemblies (30 December 2018)

We have updated proparse with further enhancements in this release (see Please download the .NET Assemblies ZIP file from our ESD and replace the in your environment with the latest one. The new assembly reference is:

<assembly name=", Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cda1b098b1034b24"/>

As proparse is used by our Business Entity Generator, this new version of the Assembly is also relevant for customers not doing GUI for .NET development and require support for parsing new ABL language constructs.

This version of proparse provides additional debug information when errors are thrown from

New Version of the Consultingwerk.SmartComponents Assemly (09 January 2019)

To support the new SmartFilterControl and the "Filter" link between the SmartFilterControl/SmartDynamciFilterControl and a SmartBusinessEntityAdapter or SmartDatasetChildAdapter we have updated the Consultingwerk.SmartComponents.dll. The new Assembly reference is:

<assembly name="Consultingwerk.SmartComponents, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=10603cb31df311b3"/>

Customers need to update this Assembly in order to compile the latest releases of the SmartComponent Library.

Hybrid Realm now using IAuthenticationService

We've updated the SmartHybridRealm class used for http authentication to leverage the IAuthenticationService. It is therefor required that for AppServers requiring http Authentication (e.g. REST or Web) the correct IAuthenticationService implementation is registered (using service.xml files).

Customers relying on the previous behavior should ensure that the Consultingwerk.SmartFramework.Authentication.AuthenticationService is regsitered as the IAuthenticationService. This implementation will auhtenticate users against the password stored in the SmartUser database table. 

When users with no Login Company set should be able to login using the SmartHybridRealm, it's required to set the Login Company Tennant Domain (similar to the field in the Login Company Maintenance) in the .restapplicationsettings / .applicationsettings, e.g.:

 "DefaultAuthenticationDomain": "consultingwerk" 

This is required as the Hydrid Realm Interface from Progress does not provide the domain name to the authentication method.

This error has been resolved by preventing the use of the Refresh tool while still opening telemetry data.

SCL-3764 Telemetry Service now records user and login company for AppServer clients without client-principal


We have extended the Telemetry Service to record user and login company information for AppServer clients that do not provide the client-principal.

SCL-3768 InterfaceGenerator could not find base-class in other project


We have resolved issues in the InterfaceGenerator with multi-project environments. The InterfaceGenerator now supports generating Interfaces for a class that is using a super-class in another project. This is for instance a typical scenario when classes inherit from a class provided by the SmartComponent Library which is typically help in a separate project.

SCL-3777 Fixed error raised from SmartDatasetAdapter destructor when closing form


We have resolved an error that was raised by the SmartDatasetAdapter destructor for SmartDatasetChildAdapter instances when the SmartBusinessEntityAdapter owning the Dataset was disposed/deleted before the SmartDatasetChildAdapter.

Details of the error:

Indeterminate extent dimension 0 is out of range 1 to 28000. (11385)

SCL-3779 Fixed MessageFormHelper:AskQuestion hanging when called during wait-state in OpenEdge 12.6


Due to a change in OpenEdge 12.6 the MeessageFormHelper:AskQuestion() or ShowMessage() API’s disallowed clicking on the MessageForm’s buttons when the SESSION:SET-WAIT-STATE(“GENERAL”) was issued earlier.

This is due to a deliberate change made by Progress Software in OpenEdge 12.6 in how the ShowDialog() method deals with the WAIT-STATE condition. The change made by Progress Software should improve consistency between ABL Dialog Frames and modal .NET Forms.


SCL-3726 FileHelper:CanFindTextInBinaryFile now uses INDEX(str, memptr) on OE12.2+


The FileHelper:CanFindTextInBinaryFile is now utilizing the new support for MEMPTR data in the INDEX function from OpenEdge 12.2 on.

SCL-3749 Improved the usage of the PROFILER handle in the ProfilerService:StopProfiler() method


We have improved the usage of the PROFILER system handle in the ProfilerService:StopProfilder() service. Especially we’ve changed the order of turning off the PROFILING and ENABLED properties and the call to the WRITE-DATA method.

SCL-3756 ABL Frame to MetaViewer migration now supports "Left/Top Align"


The migration of ABL Frames to MetaViewer object masters in the repository now supports the “Left/Top Align” feature.

SCL-3758 Repository Object Designer: Improved opening of deleted and recreated objects from the LRU


Previously when a repository object was deleted and recreated with the same name, the LRU list in the Open Object Master dialog was not able to open the object as this feature was just relying on the stored GUID of the repository object master. Now the object name is used alternatively to open the object from the repository for editing.

SCL-3760 Added scaling factory for pixel-perfect web rendering of components in a viewer


We have implemented scaling factors as static properties in the new Consultingwerk.SmartFramework.Repository.WebRenderingScalingFactors class. Those scaling factors are used to calculate the absolute positioning and size of controls in pixel-perfect viewers.

SCL-3761 When migrating static frames into repository based viewers we're now applying the NoLabel attribute


When fields in an ABL viewer have been defined with the NO-LABEL option, the ABL legacy frame migration utility now applies the NoLabel attribute to the instances in the resulting MetaViewer.

SCL-3762 ABL Browser migration tool now appends Browse-Name to proposed object name


The ABL Browser migration tool now appends Browse widget’s name to proposed name for the object master in the SmartFramework repository.

SCL-3766 Improved FileHelper:RelativeFileName() performance


The FileHelper:RelativeFileName() was based on the adecomm/_relfile.p procedure provided by Progress Software.

We have been able to implement our own variant with significant performance benefits (up to 10 times faster). This has been achieved by reducing the amount of time the PROPATH and NUM-ENTRIES functions are used.

SCL-3767 Allow to hide call to create-instance.i for BufferDataSource in a method in the DataAccess base class.


We have added various variants of the new method CreateBufferDataSource() in the DataAccess class. This allows developers to avoid the usage of the Consultingwerk/create-instance.i when calling into the Factory Service to create instances of the BufferDataSource class.

SCL-3769 Provide Consultingwerk.RadControlSupport assembly for Telerik Version 2022.2.622


We have added a new variant of the Consultingwerk.RadControlSupport assembly built against the Telerik Version 2022.2.622.

SCL-3770 GarbageCollectorHelper should not be used to delete Service Instances


We’ve added a new variant of the GarbageCollectorHelper:DeleteObject() method. This method is expecting either a single or an array of Ccs.Common.IService instances. This new variant of the DeleteObject() method now checks with the ServiceContainer if the object instance is currently registered as a service and raises the Consultingwerk.Util.Exceptions.CannotDeleteServiceException when attempting to delete a registered service instance.

SCL-3772 Provide support for OpenEdge 12.6


In preparation of the release of OpenEdge 12.6 we have extended the product to support OpenEdge 12.6 in various areas (SCL-3774, SCL-3775 and SCL-3776).

SCL-3778 BusinessEntityBusinessTask:FetchDataByReference now to used BY-REFERENCE for FetchData call


We have enhanced the Business Entity Designer Templates for the BusinessEntityBusinessTask to use BY-REFERENCE when calling into the Business Entities FetchDataByReference() in the BusinessEntityBusinessTask’s FetchDataByReference() method.


SCL-3774 Added 12.6 to the ProVersionEnum class


In preparation of the release of OpenEdge 12.6 we have added P126 as a member to the ProVersionEnum class.

SCL-3775 Added 12.6 to the Batch Scripts that determine OpenEdge location from Windows registry


In preparation of the release of OpenEdge 12.6 we have added OpenEdge 12.6 to the batch scripts that obtain the DLC location from the Windows registry:

* scl-gen-interface
* scl-pasoe
* scl-gen
* scl-sng

SCL-3776 Add OpenEdge 12.6 to Business Entity Designer Launcher Configuration


In preparation of the release of OpenEdge 12.6 we have added OpenEdge 12.6, 12.6/32 and 12.6/64 to the launcher versions in the Business Entity Designer Settings dialog.


SCL-3759 SmartRoutes endpoint now filters out child routes from root level


We’ve improved the filtering of routes from product modules not requested in the SmartRoutes endpoint.
