For SQL databases, default dropdowns to AlphaDAO

Many users now use SQL with a single connection string. So, on the Web Project Profiles property sheet, add a General option to default to AlphaDAO and that connection string. Now, property sheets for dropdowns and edit combos default to DBF. They should default to AlphaDAO and the named connection string.

Unbound Fields

The ability to add unbound fields in the same manner as unbound buttons. Having to add it to the select statement shouldnt be needed if its unbound. This would be a great advantage to calculated fields.

Update this for In Progress &/or Complete

It would be great of someone at A5 could mark items here as In Progress or Complete. I think a lot of users would appreciate that feedback when their ideas are going places.

Web Grids - Containers, Frames and Tab Panes in Search and Grid

That's it - my whole suggestion. I would like to be able to use Containers, Frames and Tab Panes in both the Search part and Grid part. Among other benefits, the ability to use Show/Hide for groups of fields in the Search Part would be very useful.

Calendar / Scheduler V11

Having seen a sneak preview at the London Conference (thanks Alpha and Avanquest) please make this available on the desktop also. If the licencing issues make it an extra cost add on then so be it. It would be such a great feature in both the web and desktop arenas.

Dynamic Dropdown Filter

The lookup allows for a dynamic filter - which allows you to filter a lookup based on grid fields. This feature would be really nice to have in a dropdown.

Web - HTML Editor everywhere where HTML is accepted

In several places (Column Labels, Buttons, Menus) in fact it is possible to use Unicode text, but the editor does not allow Unicode input. You have to go somewhere else, type Unicode text, and then Copy and Paste the HTML code.

All these places should launch the HTML editor when clicked in the develpoment environement.

Please add these in your next version so we don't have to scower the forum & internet to setup basic security. Thanks.

Update Internal HTML Editor

The current HTML editor is functional...but very limited. An improved editor (along the lines CKEditor) would be helpful.

Make SQL statement in Grid Editable without clicking 'Edit'

Most seasoned developers can write SQL off the top of their head. Clicking the 'Edit' button everytime is a hassle.

Application Server Xbasic Scheduler for Web Projects

I would like to see a feature built into the application server that would allow for the scheduling of xbasic scripts or functions to run at a specified interval or days in web applications.

 

This could be taken one step further also with the addition of an event handler, where you could specify xbasic code to execute on specified events for example a new file is added to a directory.
