With the Release of V11, this idea is more important than ever. Watching Video's of New features is fine, but not useful for REAL Programming. The Video's seem to skim over important information which you don't know is important until you try one of the new features and it doesn't work and there is little or no help available. While the WIKI was a valiant attempt to improve help, it is a BIG failure in my opinion and ...more »
Being able to shift-click a bunch of fields and click 'Hide Row' or modify other properties would be a good addition
The included CSS styles are okay but, to be honest, most look like they are straight out of the DOS days. I'd like to have some more modern templates included with Alpha.
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 »
How many of us went out and bought I5 and I7 workstations and XEON Servers to run Alpha? What do you get for the added expense? Nothing, because Alpha is a 32 bit single core Executable. You could actually see your wait times increased with a new system if you purchase a slower clock speed, but more cores, CPU. Of course other factors also play a role, such as hard driver and memory speeds. But if Alpha was a true ...more »
It would be nice to be able to set in settings / preferences the default image file extension to be used the file selection box when entering data into a an image reference field. Currently always opens as BMP and each time you use the file dialog you have to change to JPG
It'd be great when you have a large number of fields displayed, to be able to scroll down the grid while the column titles remain fixed.
How about a cookbook that is chock-full of code recipes that address common programming tasks, as well as techniques for building web apps. Something that allows one (especially newbies) to copy and paste the code samples into a project. This would allow us to get a program done faster and reduce the learning curve in the process.
At the moment Im currently looking for a property to make the grid 'undirty'. Thorough documentation would relieve these roadblocks - instead of just depending on user to user contact to get information like this across.
Pretty self explanatory - I find myself having to close a grid and not save changes because I made a change I can't undo.
It would be nice if you could copy an action button on a grid and paste it to another without having to re-create it from scratch.
We have huge grids/ Repeating sections and when the user scrolls to the right he can no longer see the Row Label column(s). We would like to be able to freeze 1 - 3 columns into place as a row label, so that these columns can be seen no matter how much the user scrolls. Just fix them in place. I am not talking about the column tiles/headings, I know this has been done, but about the complete column with each cell in every ...more »
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.
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.
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.
