NetTalk Pre-Release version 4.31 available
« on: May 05, 2008, 07:42:59 AM »
The 4.31 pre-release is available here;

http://www.capesoft.com/ftp/public/prerelease/index.htm

The feature set for 4.31 is not complete yet, but major chunks have already been finished, and so for those urgently needing the new features this is a good build to start playing with.

** If you use this build please remember to update your Web folder **

The primary feature additions with this build are;
a) Better looking browses.
b) Edit-In-Place on browses.
c) a "Copy" button for the browse (ie Insert / Copy / Change / Delete)
d) An animated graphic displays when Ajax browse updates are pending.
e) 4 new examples covering ActiveX, Timers, Static Pages and record Tagging.

The complete version history is as follows;

Add: New example: WScriptActiveX (45)
Add: New example: Timers (46)
Add: New example: Pages (47)
Add: New example: Tagging (48)
Add: MouseOver feature in Browses. The row under the mouse is visually highlighted (as distinct from visual highlighting used for selections)
Add: Support for multi-lined browse records.
Add: Edit-In-Place on browse columns added. [still todo : Lookup button functionality]
Add: 'Other' buttons in browses can now trigger server-side code.
Add: Support for browse headers to span multiple columns.
Add: Support for browse data to span multiple columns.
Add: Removed extra browse column 1.
Add: Small animated "busy" graphic when browse is doing an Ajax update.
Add: Copy button and SmallCopy button to browses. Does an "Insert" but using the highlighted record to prime the fields.
Add: SmallOtherButton property and template settings.
Add: ABC Class support to NetWebBrowse, NEtWebForm and NetWebSource procedure types.
Add: Optionally allow xHtml in Browse headings and sub-headings.
Add: SyncSql property. If set VIEW access to the database is synchronized. This may help with HTMST BUSY errors in MsSql. [Better to use Ms2005, clarion 9058, and MARS]
Add: Page title on browse and form defaults to header if blank. *** This may cause compile errors when upgrading. Please see note here.
Add: Allow xHtml setting for Form "Display" fields.
Add: Option to suppress children if browse called as a lookup.
Add: Ability to set the browse table width in pixels.

Change: NoWrap attribute added to browse and form styles. This prevents text from wrapping. Feel  free to override in your own styles.
Change: Improved CSS for Browse table - including Image background for header bar.
Change: Optionally allow a read-only lookup field on a form to display the "description" instead of  the "Code".
Change: Properties ImageW and ImageH in NetWebButtonGroup changed to ImageWidth and ImageHeight respectively to avoid conflict with Pro-Scan.
Change: Embed points in NetWebBrowse better organised.
Change: Improved template support for Checkbox values.
Change: Deprecated "not in view" template option on browse.
Change: Re-arranged template settings for buttons on a form to make it neater.

Fix: Style applied to comment in form, even if comment is Spanned.
Fix: Dynamic Form Fields, with formatted pictures, improved.
Fix: _jsok method can now be called safely multiple times on the same string.
Fix: Special characters in Form Field Type "Display" handled correctly.
Fix: When using SQL backends, the form often "forgot" where to return to in the browse.
Fix: ReadOnly on Text fields (when HTML) now works.
Fix: Work-around for frame borders not visible in IE.
Fix: After specific lookup sequence, old checkbox field values might be restored.
Fix: Contains and BeginsWith Locators were broken.
Internal: Parameters for CreateSortHeader method changed.
Internal: Parameter to CreateTextArea method added.
Internal: Parameter to _jsok method added.

Cheers
Bruce

This build contains a few fixes, and includes the files missing from the "Pages" example.

build 4 is now available.

This build includes an updated button example showing the refreshing of a cell, row, or browse when clicking on a "server side code" browse button.

Cheers

build 5 is now available.
Lots of bug fixes in this one. Also a new example "Validation" which demonstrated Immediate Field Validation (which by default is now ON).

Re: NetTalk Pre-Release version 4.31 PR 6 available

A quick update on yesterday's build. There was quite a serious regression, which evidenced itself as the "lookup button not working." The actual problem extended beyond that. This build fixes that issue, and also tidies up a couple of loose ends.

There was a (human) bug in the build process meaning that the PR6 build was incomplete. PR7 has been uploaded. So if you have PR5 or PR6 please rather use PR7.

PR8 is on the pre-release page. This build is mostly just polishing a few things, as well as tidying up some bits and pieces.

Re: NetTalk Pre-Release version 4.31 PR 10 available

Ok, PR10 is up.
I'm running out of things to fix - If I've forgotten something please let me know.
(I'm talking specifically about _bugs_ here, not features.)

I need to update the docs in a big way, especially the template docs, before 4.31 goes final.

Cheers
Bruce

Re: NetTalk Pre-Release version 4.31 PR 11 available
« Reply #10 on: August 14, 2008, 09:20:29 AM »
Well after my boast for PR10, PR11 had a number of regressions. I've had to undo the SQL-Insert feature for now, and I've fixed all the other (known) regressions. If you're using PR10 I strongly recommend this update.

Cheers

PR13 is up. This just has a better Multi-DLL example, and more docs on doing multi-dll apps.
