Field Size Detection for New Grids

It would be a real time saver if A5 would auto configure cell, header and text box characteristics for fields in a new grid based on the field definition i.e. its length and type.

 

Configurable Options could include:

1. Set cell size equal to header or field length whichever is longer/shorter.

2. Set row size to X% of font size

3. Set input box size to X% of cell size

etc

Close an individual tabbedUI pane programatically.

There is a "close all panes" capability in the tabbed UI, but many times it would help to close an individual tabbed UI pane.

Image/File Upload - with directory by field

With both the Image Upload and File Upload predefined functions, I would like to have the Path accommodate a subdirectory derived from a field in the table. So - my record could have a field called "Directory", and that would be the subdirectory used. I'm told there are ways to do it using the older code, but it sure sounds like a lot of extra stuff to get it to work. This, to me, is a prime candidate for an upgrade ...more »

Improved A5W Page Editor

I believe we have needed for several versions now, a much improved WYSIWYG A5w page editor. It is extremely difficult laying out navigation buttons, grids and text on the current page. Something like the Yahoo Sitebuilder program would be perfect! In that program, one can simply choose the component and set it onto the page and it renders exactly as it was laid down.

Image Upload in Dialog

Forgive me if this is already here somewhere. I did a Search, didn't see it, but very surprised to not find it. I can't be the first to want this... I would like to be able to use the Image Upload feature pack in a Dialog. I always thought we couldn't do it because you can't use Image Upload on a grid that isn't dirty. But I just noticed under "Defined Controls" a selection for "Update Source Grid", and it made me ...more »

Add "AfterDialogClose" event

Most Dialog components are now being called from some type of Grid.

 

After a dialog is complete, it might be necessary to run certain actions on the parent grid after all actions are complete in the called Dialog component.

 

An AfterDialogClose would be the perfect place to execute these ajaxcallbacks or even inline Javascript.

Login Component Needs to respect dynamic connection

The login component currently does not respect dynamic connection strings. If the websecurity tables are ActiveLink tables to a MySQL database and the login component is based on these tables - the dynamic connection string wont properly resolve.

Desktop - drag/drop tasklist - choice to open collapsed

While editing layouts we have a drag drop list for fields, variables, and Calculations etc. I wish we had a setting somewhere (in view-settings or within the tasklist itself) that could determine that when a form is opened all the sections ie variables, calcs, and the various tables had their lists collapsed. At the moment we need to collapse unneeded sections or scroll a lot to find what we need. We already have the ...more »

Downloadable sample databases that go with each group of videos

The videos are awesome but would would be the icing on the cake would be if Alpha Five could supply samples that are in the videos. Videos are OK but getting into a database and being able to poke around change things test things is way better, well for me anyway. The challenge I see is Alpha web projects contain lots of files over lots of folders but I am sire Alpha Software can create some sort of Install package that ...more »
