Nested Group Breaks in Grid Component

Allow group breaks on multiple fields in the Grid Component. The objective here is to allow for a "drill down" grid that allows users to click on the break summary and see lower level summaries, then finely the detail values. I have tried overriding the Xbasic by creating new tmpl.groupBreaks.expression2=”second value” to no avail. I have also tried extending this with the Adjacency List Model, but this solution ...more »

Increase Grid Component Count Query Efficiency

Grid components execute two queries when opened--the main SELECT statement that the developer enters and a secondary SELECT Count(*) statement for displaying the number of records, dealing with record pagination, navigation, etc. The Count(*) query is usually out of sight, out of mind, but checking my MySQL slow query log, I often find lots of these "SELECT Count(*) FROM..." queries. These queries are created by Alpha ...more »

Rename Grid Export File From Grid Properties Listing

When checking the Export option on the properties tab there is no option for renaming the file something other than the system file name. This is possible with the action script. Maybe this is feature pack upgrade. It would also be great to have logic so that the grid can be name based on the search controls (and date created) used to generate the grid.

I do this to address the needs of different users of my application. To do this now, I maintain multiple grids. If I make a change, I have to change each one separately. I would like a Search part as a completely separate Search Part that could then be coded ...more »

Hide Records, Show Empty Grid before Search

Aside from filters and arguments, the search part can also be used to limit what a user can see. But only if one checks the 'Hide grid when no search active' option. But I find grids that appear and disappear have disadvantages: 1. They can be off-putting for new users. 2. They make it more difficult to create interfaces with more predictable appearance and behaviour. I would therefore like the option to display an ...more »

Anytime Template Application

I would like to be able to apply a saved grid template at any time to an existing grid. Of course this risks damaging existing valid properties such as db connections etc.To allow for this, one must be able to select the template properties to apply. In addition the template should include more generic rule based properties (font size, row height as a function of font size, cell width based on field name or field length, ...more »
