Ability to CTRL+Z (undo) in web component events

Pretty self explanatory - I find myself having to close a grid and not save changes because I made a change I can't undo.

Make this more accessible

Well, when I see only a couple of votes on each thing, it makes me think very few people come here. I'd suggest this be listed as one of the spaces on the main forum, just like Alpha 5 Version 10 Web is, or Desktop, etc.

Grid : Search as you type

We have Ajax & SQL power so an option to toggle search as you type behavior would be very powerful!

Desktop - Alpha Installer - .net and c++

For the runtime installer. A way is needed so c++, runtime, .net files and alpha runtime can be installed in one operation. It would also be nice if some registry entries can be made.

 

We can do this easily with things like astrum installer, but it does not appear to be possible with alpha installer.

Include Container ID at the END

When we add a Container (or Frame), the BEGINNING container includes the ID Name, but the ENDING does inot....

 

This is not an issue with just a few containers, and not many controls. But, when we have a lot of controls, it's hard to connect the dots.

 

And, it woudl be great to have expand/collapse in the Tree View of the Dialog Builders - so that if one section is 'done', we can collapse it from our view

Direct Print for Web Applications

Although this question has been asked in the A5 forums a few times, no easy method has been offered by any of the versions, including V11. The idea is to have an option in a web app that would allow the user to click on the "print" button, and have the PDF or other document print directly to the default printer, without having to view it on the screen first. This would be especially handy for applications used in a ...more »

Sketch Field

I would like an image field that would allow someone using the web site to draw in the field with their mouse. I've seen web sites with signature fields like that, where you sign with the mouse. I would use it for other purposes - it could be used any place the web site needed to get graphic information from the user.

Ajax callback wait message

A common requirement while doing an ajax callback is to put up a message box that says, for example, "Please wait until the calculation completes", perhaps with a rotating gif.

Add this to the action button property sheet so we don't have to code it with JavaScript in Client side events.

Offer incentives for reporting & documenting bugs!

PART1: Acknowledge and reward "finders" for all the time spent on documenting and reporting a5 bugs. In the end, this would ultimately enable Alpha to produce a better / cleaner product, and save other users much frustration..... PART2: It would also be beneficial for users to be able to research and review these bugs online. (with associated info regarding status, workarounds & and patch date) If bug reporting was ...more »

Auto zip backup and add date time extension

Provide an option to automatically zip a backup of the database when the software is closed. It should append the date and time to the zip file and place in a user defined location.

 

Include an option, probably under the current zip option, to cause the automatic zip backup to run now.

Double-Click a field property and open properties

Web Grids.... It would be a nice if we could double-click the name of a field property (i.e. Control type and it opens whatever dialog is associated with it). If there is no dialog box then the property would still change based on the property type... Obviously, this would only apply to those properties that have a [...] icon (double-clicking would be the same response as pressing the [...] icon/button). by double-clicking ...more »
