WDF/BA updates:

- NEW: Introducing background images. You can now add a background image to your WDF/BA:

In GP006, add a key 'BKGIMAGES', and in the text area, add links to images, each link on a new line.

The display of the background images is spread over 24 hours, in the following manner: for example, when you added 4 links, you have link 0, 1, 2 and 3 : int(current hour / (24 / number of links)) = int(15 / (24 / 4)) = int(15 / 6) = int(2,5) = 2, which means it will use link number 3.

This way, you can have special images for the morning, midday, afternoon, evening and night.

- Improved local development and test environment by installing local HTTPS and DNS .

- Changed the general log level from 9 to 7. Changed the log level of reading data for list views to 9 for interactive mode and 2 when exporting. This change will massively reduce the number log-entries.

- GP004: Renamed it to MD007, which is a better place for it.  This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who do already have an MD007 for something else.

- GP009: Improved auto-complete on the tags field.

- MD000: Added 'copy a record'-mode. This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who need it.

- MD001: Added a TagEditor to the 'Location type' field. This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who need it.

- Many CSS and under the hood fixes and updates, including removing or replacing PHP 8.1 deprecations. The final move to PHP 8.1 for the production servers, is planned to be done in April/May 2022

WDF/BA updates:

- Better modal confirmation dialog positioning.

- You can now set application variables via GP006. I advise against it, unless you are sure that you know what you want. Here is a list with variables you can set:

  • LOGLEVEL: 0 through 9. The lower the number, the less message are logged.
  • EXTRAWIDTH: In pixels; to widen the content area.
  • EXPORT: 0 or 1; allow Excel/CSV-export.
  • EXPORTTYPE: 'csv', 'txt' or 'xls' (without the quotes).
  • EXPORTUSELABELS: 0, 1 or 2; 0 = no column headings, 1 = Short text, 2 = Long text
  • EXPORTHEADER: 0 or 1; Exports information about the app and the date in the first 3 lines.
  • EXPORTFILENAME: Set the file name for the export. If not set, it defaults to PRODUCTNAME_APPNAME_DATETIME.ext
  • EXPORTSEPARATOR: Only valid for non-XLS exports. The column separator to use. If not set, a tab (.txt) or a semicolon (.csv) is used.
  • NODUPLICATEBTN: 0 or 1; enable or disable the 'copy record' button in list-view.
  • NONEWBTN: 0 or 1; enable or disable the 'Add new' button.
  • NOHELPBTN: 0 or 1; enable or disable the 'Help' button.
  • DELCHKBOX: 0 or 1; enable or disable the 'multi-delete' feature in list-view. Note: not all apps have this 'multi-delete'-feature implemented. If you find an app where you need it, and it hasn't this feature, contact me for a quote.
  • SQLLIMITENTRY: 0 or 1; enable or disable the 'Results per page' entry field in the footer.
Create an entry in GP006 with the application's name as key, for example 'GP006', and add each variable you want to set on a new line, in the text field, like so: VARNAME=VALUE

ALT-N or Option-N, tags and styling

 Permalink

WDF/BA update:

- Added the keyboard shortcut ALT-N (Windows) / Option-N (macOS) to start a new record. Now you don't have to click the (+) button. This works when there is no input field selected.

- Added a jQuery Tag-Editor to the framework.

- Added an alternating backround to rows in listview; each even row gets a very light grey backround. This helps the eye to follow the data on a row from left to right.

How the menu will be displayed, can be set in GP006, key 'USERMENU' :

You can write 'Footer', 'Header' or 'Menu bar' in the text field, it is the first character of the word/sentence that is significant.

If this does not work in your system, it has not been implemented. Contact us for a quote if you want this.
