Asset Exchange / Missing dividends / How to track incoming dividends
« on: November 04, 2015, 06:13:08 am »
Hi everyone

What's the best way to verify/see/track incoming dividends?

I (NXT-7LUC-22LJ-5WJ4-22222) own e.g. 80 HdgFundNXT and lopalcar issued a dividend with transaction id 399094832439252659 yesterday (https://nxtforum.org/index.php?topic=10173.msg198794#msg198794)
When opening my account the last transaction is dated November first - why don't I see the payment?

Another example is the last DeBuNe dividend tx-id 16854565318260077093 (https://nxtforum.org/debune/second-debune-dividend-paid!/) - there's no payment to my account on 23rd of September.

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers, LiQio

Nxt Projects / NxtLoader v2.5.0 for Windows .NET
« on: January 30, 2015, 01:06:09 pm »
NxtLoader v2.5.0 for Windows (.NET) released

Description
A small application that replaces the run.bat file and works as an auto-installer.
Please see feature list below.



Download website: http://nxt.cloudns.pro/
(you can find a couple of more screenshots there as well)

Direct download: http://nxt.cloudns.pro/NxtLoader_V2.5.0.zip (614kb)
MD5 hash of zip-file: caac36d7bbb5af662b9ac7173a6fa0e9

Source code: PM me if you want the current (hobbyist) source

Feature-List:
Auto-install of NRS
Put the two NxtLoader files in a new directory.
When NxtLoader starts it will install the current stable Nxt NRS release from scratch (URL retrieved from the blockchain through peers with open API, checking of hashes included).

Details about downloading the initial Nxt.zip:
- request version, hash, link from nxtrelease.info (thanks to antanst!)
- if nxtrelease.info gives us values, find at least two nxt peers with open-api access that confirm this info
- if nxtrelease.info doesn't provide values, find at least 3 nxt peers with open-api access that provide the same values
- if you want to rely on more than 3 server simply change value BlankInstallMinAmountConcurrentServers in config
-> safe for the newbie user


Update NRS
Detects new versions of NRS and notfies user with a changed color of label version. The new version can be downloaded, hash-checked and installed with two button-clicks.

Cleanup-Feature
When holding Ctrl-key while clicking Quit-button it allows you to trigger an easy cleanup or even reinstall. It will stop NRS, allow you to kill running java-processes, allow you to delete nxt_db or even the Nxt.jar file. In the last case, you'll be able to do a complete reinstall of NRS after the automatic restart.

(Offline) storage account creation / Gift-card creation
(0. Copy the two NxtLoader files to an offline Windows machine.)
1. Hold Ctrl-key and click button "Open Nxt Wallet"
2. Enter a strong passphrase (please see the different best practices guides on this forum if you're unsure)
3. An image file (png) containing NXT-account ID, public key, secret passphrase will be created.
4. Print the image and fund the offline account with some Nxt using the given Account ID and the public key.
5. Put the printed image in your physical safe (optional: destroy the offline Windows machine ;-).)

SNTP client
If an NTP Server is specified in the config file (default). NxtLoader will try to sync the system time with it on an hourly basis. (Exe needs to be run as admin (right click) if UAC is enabled. This is required by Microsoft, sorry.)

EasyForge functionality
You can save one or several accounts to quickly start forging. The file with the accounts will be encrypted (AES256) with a unique key based on your hardware and additionally a user entered passphrase will be used. To decrypt the file the computer has to be the same and the passwords match. Check tab EasyForge for more details. Right click on accounts lets you copy account-no and passphrase.

Config-editor
Built-in minimal GUI to edit/create nxt.properties/logging.properties file (or others, files definable in config)

Start process with button click
E.g. to easily start mint.bat (file list can also be defined in config)

Miscellaneous Features
- The application tries to find java.exe in several locations (including registry) and if found, NxtLoader starts NRS. The minimum version can be defined in the config.
- The command line output is directed to a tab in the main window. No console windows visible.
- It can be minimized/hidden to the system tray and has a button/menu entry to open the wallet in the default browser.
- Tray icon shows if NRS is running (=responding) or not by switching color.
- The config-file allows changing many settings.
- A starting tab shows links to useful resources (can be customized in config, escaped XML/XAML)
- 4 status fields show if NRS is running, if blockchain is up-to-date, current version and number of accounts unlocked


ToDo
- implement database backup
- maybe log-file viewer
- clean up code
- get a real developer to refactor
- open source it (store it on git-bit-something)
- find real developer to take over or bury project if there is no demand

Nxt Helpdesk / No public key message
« on: September 05, 2014, 08:07:52 am »
Crossposting this from the BTT tread.

Tl;dr
user opossum has no public key, but an asset - the public key warning is not shown, probably because there is already an asset.

Can somebody help here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=587007.msg8682583#msg8682583

User opossum, has a "broken" account
http://blocks.nxtcrypto.org/nxt/nxt.cgi?action=3000&acc=10688662162065545025

No public key, but no public key warning that displays the public key: http://postimg.org/image/byz0v1oxr/

Seems like it's because he received an asset, probably before the public key requirement was in place.

Now, to fund the account he would need the public key.
What is the easiest way to derive the public key from the password? End user friendly variants please ;-)

NxtLoader Version 2 for Windows (.NET) - Beta

Beta-testers needed.
If you find errors, please provide detailed description: OS, action executed, console output, java version, whatever else you can provide.

Description
A small .NET based WPF application that replaces the run.bat file used to start NRS (zip version).

Features
- The software tries to find java.exe in several locations (including registry) and if found, NxtLoader starts NRS.
- The command line output is directed to a tab in the main window.
- It can be minimized/hidden to the system tray and has a button/menu entry to open the wallet in the default browser.
- Tray icon shows if NRS is running (=responding) or not by switching color.
- The config-file allows changing many settings.
- NEW: Design, colors, buttons, images updated (more or less) according to ideenfrische's guide
- NEW: A starting tab shows links to useful resources (can be changed in config, escaped XML/XAML)
- NEW: 4 status fields show if NRS is running, if blockchain is up-to-date, current version and number of accounts unlocked
- NEW: An auto-forging feature has been implemented. You enter your passphrase and it will be stored encrypted with a hardware based key. Whenever you start NxtLoader this account will start forging automatically.
- NEW: An auto-update feature let's you download and install new versions within the GUI.

(technical/security feedback on the auto-forge "implementation" would be appreciated)

Screenshots






Prerequisites
.NET Framework 4.0 or higher
Windows XP or higher, 32bit or 64bit

Installation
Unzip the archive and copy the two files (NxtLoader.exe and NxtLoader.exe.config) to the Nxt-NRS-folder (see screenshot).
Make sure that Nxt NRS is not already running and then use NxtLoader.exe to start Nxt instead of run.bat
Advanced users can tweak the config.




Disclaimer
I'm not a developer, so please be kind when testing the software/reviewing the code (later).
You can trust me, but you shouldn't - please run the exe on a test system.
If you test auto-forging don't use an account with many Nxt.

Download
Please use newest version see post below (https://nxtforum.org/index.php?topic=3901.msg76568#msg76568)

NxtLoader_V2.0.0.0.zip http://www.xup.to/dl,13343771/NxtLoader_V2.0.0.0.zip/

md5 hashes
ZIP-archive 7a90ea59ae0b4f146cb2378d9091ae16
NxtLoader.exe 3373bd30697cf319716a51a49e25a021


Edit:
Soon to come: Auto Install
If NxtLoader is started without finding NRS it will install it from scratch. The current original zip-file from Jean-Luc will be downloaded from a location provided by the blockchain. No need for the user to check hashes or the like. The new Windows user can basically get started with a 500kb download.

Edit2: added link to new thread/v2.5.0 as the first line

API discussion / API: Determine if blockchain downloading
« on: July 21, 2014, 11:18:50 am »
Can someone point me to the API call that answers if the blockchain is currently downloading?

Basically, I would like to know how the clients determine when to show: "Downloading blockchain" or "The blockchain is currently downloading. Please wait until it is up to date."

Thanks in advance,
LiQio

Nxt Helpdesk / Nxt client passphrase field question
« on: June 25, 2014, 12:46:45 pm »
Sorry people for asking like a noob. And again sorry if this has been answered (many) times before.

Never used any whitespaces in a passphrase until today. Is it true, that linefeed symbols (CR-LF, CR, LF) are being replaced by a space symbol when entering the passphrase in the web client.

E.g.
Code: [Select]
a
b
c
leads to
Code: [Select]
a b c
Is this observation correct?
Thanks - LiQio

Jobs board / C# version of ReedSolomon.java
« on: June 24, 2014, 01:11:30 pm »
Need someone to create a C# version of ReedSolomon.java

Original NXT source code: ReedSolomon.java
https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/src/dbfa2560e829f318325d36d6924a73c69019be01/src/java/nxt/crypto/ReedSolomon.java?at=master

If ENCODE(numericAccountId) is working properly, e.g. ENCODE(100000) should result in NXT-53P2-2222-SQQW-22222 this would be enough.

Requirements:
- .NET 4.0 compatibility
- no need for fancy error handling or the like
- one file
- no external (non .NET) references

Bounty:
Could offer 2500 NXT for a working function
