Compatibility Summary
  • Deprecated methods are present to ensure backwards compatibility, their functionality has been automatically rolled into the Object.
  • You must update the RightFielder object and data files together. They are not cross compatible with the object and data files from the previous version of RightFielder.
Interface Changes
  • Parse() is the recommended processing function. Pre-release versions accepeted two parameters. The current version accepts a single parameter - the freeform / unfielded data to parse.
  • The following methods have been removed from beta versions. If you recieved RightFielder Object as a pre-released / beta version, you must remove these methods from being called...
    • GetDatabaseExpirationDate() //database no longer expires
    • ClearProperties() //automatically done by the object
  • The following Enumerations have changed:
    • Delimiters: SetDelimiter now takes an enum parameter rather than a string But deprecated, so calling this method is not recommended.
    • ProgramStatus: value of 3 - DatabaseExpired has been removed (see above)
Functionality Changes
  • The following methods are deprecated. a call to either is simply redirected to Parse()...
    • ParseFreeForm()
    • ParseFielded()
