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 »
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 »
That's it - that's my whole Idea. I think if an item on this list gets enough votes, I'd like to see some response from the A5 peeps. I currently see only 5 that have 20 votes or more (and at least one of them has been implemented - um, check it off as "done" maybe?) - and only a few more with 15 votes. For that small number of wish list items, I don't think it would be an undue burden for someone from The Big Giant ...more »
I would like to be able to select a field, right click, and choose "copy formatting" and then apply that to another field I've already added (via right click, "paste format") - a lot like we can copy and paste formatting on the desktop side.
This is related to the earlier request to copy and paste buttons, and Peter G's add-on comments.
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.
An awful lot of the input boxes are just too small. Please make more of them bigger and/or resizable.
Here's an example - Navigation Component - that box for the list is ridiculous. When combined with the fact that you have to move things left, then down, then over, etc if you want to move to a different heading, and you can't see what you're doing. It's like driving in the dark with only half a headlight.
I have several different ways to Search that could lead to the same Grid. And, I have several identical Searches associated with different Grid Components. 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 »
If I'm working on a grid where the aesthetics are important, I spend a lot of time going back and forth with the preview.
I'd like an option to tile rather than tabs - preview on the right.
To make it sane, Refresh would be on demand, not with every field change.
I'm saying "straighten out" as a general thing, because I know of one instance where Write Conflict keeps biting me on the butt, but I hear from experienced developers that there's widespread frustration with Write Conflict - from which I gather that my instance is not the only instance. My particular frustration: When you make a grid Editable, Drop Down fields all automatically have that checked. If you don't uncheck ...more »
I don't see a way on a Smart Phone to browse to a folder to select an image to upload. I have absolutely no idea how it would work - have had my iPhone for a whopping month - but we definitely have a need for image upload from a Mobile devices that don't have traditional folders. For us it's real estate agents and builders. It would apply to anybody who does a lot of work from the field and has images in their database. ...more »
Web Grids - both Grid and Detail Parts - under Insert Special Controls - I would like Record Navigation buttons, including all the options available on desktop forms (save, new, duplicate, next, previous...) giving us Codeless access to the same range of control we have on a desktop form. I want to be able to make them the size I want, with the image and/or words I want, use the ones I want and place them wherever in ...more »
Once I get a grid started, I don't need to see Available Fields or the far left column all the time. They're just taking up screen space. I think a Show/Hide button for each would be marvelous. I like to work with A5 on half my screen, whatever reference I'm using on the other. Right now, it's all squished, and the little "..." button to get at some of the controls doesn't even show unless I enlarge past half screen. ...more »
