Gasmate RC .42b

by on Aug.07, 2009, under GasMate

This is just a quick bugfix for those of you with square screens. Ed Thompson found the bug where square screens were not displaying correctly. I had set anchors when I shouldn’t have, and it should now be fixed. In doing this, I also fixed the landscape(rotation) bug.

Errors

by on Aug.03, 2009, under GasMate

As I have opted to respond by email to errors posted, I thought I would give an overview of what certain errors mean, and what to do about them.

If you do not have SQLCE installed, you will get this error:

Gasmate.exe
MissingMethodException
File or assembly name
’system.data.sqlserverce,
version=3.5.0.0 culture=neutral,
publickeytoken=3be235df1c8da2d3′,
or one of its dependencies, was not
found.

The solution to this is to install the SQLCE cabs I have hosted or download it from Microsoft.

If you have an old version of GasMate, you might get an error similar to this:

GasMate.exe
SqlCeException
[ cost ]

at System.Windows.Forms.Control.set_Visible(Boolean value)
at System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(Form fm)
at GasMate.Program.Main()

The solution to this is to either delete the database, or export your data and modify it to re-import it.

If you have a smartphone(WM Standard), you will get this error:

NotSupportedException
at
Microsoft.AGL.Common.MISC.HandleAR(PAL_ERROR.ar)
at
System.Windows.Forms.Control._InitInstance(WNT wnt, UInt32 dwStyle)

System.Windows.Forms.Control..ctor(WNT wnt)
at
System.Windows.Forms.TabControl.ctor()
at GasMate.Form1.InitializeComponent()
at GasMate.Form1..ctor()
at GasMate.Program.Main()

Unfortunately at this time, WM Standard does not support some of the form elements I am using in GasMate. Later on there is the possibility of a fork that will work on WM Standard.

First GasMate RC – .40c

by on Jul.15, 2009, under GasMate

Its been a little while since I have done a significant update.  I managed to fix the maintenance bug (I hope) for real this time.  You will also notice that you *should* be able to use just your fingers to enter in new readings(tap the numbers).  I have the ODO reading automatically brought into the numbers but not the others, since they will go up and down with time.  I could change this later on.  Check the screenshots below……

You will need to have followed the upgrade instructions for .26 already to make the DB change.  As always, .Net 3.5 and SQLCE are required.

GasMate Beta .28a

by on Jul.09, 2009, under GasMate

I wanted to release something more “done” as an RC, but this will work too. I needed to fix a bug in the maintenance table but you guys also have a treat…….a new tapping method to enter the ODO reading. YOU MUST HAVE .26B BEFORE UPGRADING TO THIS VERSION. Basically, you need to have done the database change instructions from before. Doing them again here will also work.

What’s to come…..

by on Jun.28, 2009, under GasMate

In trying to make the app more finger friendly I have been working on changing up the UI a little bit….here is a quick sample of what I am doing.  Instead of typing in the number, you just tap the numbers to increment them.  When you start the app it will remember the last ODO reading and put that in to make it easier.  The same will happen for gallons and price.
