New TAG editor control

With next VisionX update release, we'll introduce a new control: TAG editor

The TAG editor shows a list of keywords as separate panels with a small remove button, like this one:

TAG editor

TAG editor

The editor has different options. It's possible to show the input field before or after the tag list, as first or last element in the list. It's possible to choose from a list of known tags and optionally extend the list of known tags.

The TAG editor stores all keywords with a specific delimiter e.g. semicolon. The control will work with every text column without any changes.

New CSV import AddOn

With next VisionX update release we'll also release a new CSV AddOn. The AddOn contains a module for an application. The module will replace the standard export functionality of tables with a configurable export functionality.

Currently, if you export data of a table, a CSV will be generated with visible columns and labels. It's not possible to remove a column or to change the separator. To offer more options, we have a new feature:

Export dialog

Export dialog

With new export dialog, it'll be possible to show or save the export data. It's also possible to use column names as labels.

The module also comes with an awesome import dialog:

The dialog supports retry on errors and a live preview of imported data.

Assignment Controls for next VisionX update

We have some really cool new controls for you and your applications. We talk about assignment controls.

An assignment control can be used to solve a specific problem: Imagine you have a user and roles in your application. Every user can have multiple roles. To assign a role to a user, you need for example a table control. Every record in the table is a valid role assignment. To fill the table, it's necessary to have a combobox with all available roles.

This is a standard functionality of VisionX but it's not user friendly. So we tried to solve the problem with better controls.

Here are some impressions:

Simple assignment

With above controls you have better user experience and the Matrix table is perfect for a fast overview.

The controls will be available in the next VisionX update release - this week.

VisionX 5.6 second bugfix update release

Some minutes ago, we released VisionX 5.6.925. It's a bugfix version with smaller changes:

  • Word wrap labels

    It's now easy to use word-wrap labels. Simply use <html>test<html>

  • Web layout

    We fixed variaous problems in our web layouts. Some number editors had the wrong size after changing the value. It's not also possible to use html editors with undefined height. The height is calculated automatically.

  • Action editor

    We fixed a freeze problem with our action editor.

  • Custom css

    CSS changes are saved immediate after first change. This wasn't possible sometimes.

  • Record counter component

    We introduced a new component which shows the current number of records.

  • Better DB2 support

    We now show all available tables and views.

  • General bugfixes

    The release contains updates for some OpenSource frameworks like JVx and VaadinUI. It has lots of smaller bugfixes under the hood.

Simply get VisionX from your download area or register for a trial version.

VisionX 5.6 - second update release - postponed

We planned a VisionX update release for this week, but we have to postpone for one week.

The reason is simple: We found two smaller problems during the test phase and want to fix them with the update release.
Also the EPlug update release was planned for the next week and we want to release both together.

Please be patient one more week ;-)

VisionX 5.6 bugfix update release

Yesterday, we released VisionX 5.6.458. It's a bugfix version with 3 changes:

  • Application search

    The application search bar will be shown if you have more than 5 applications in the list. Sometimes the search result was not correct.

  • E-Mail Default Sender

    We had a problem with old email configurations. If the old tag defaultsender was used, it wasn't possible to change the email settings. This was the case with installed Workflow AddOn.

  • Deployment Exception

    It wasn't possible to use the deployment wizard. It had an error, if you didn't use the VisionX cloud AddOn.

Simply get VisionX from your download area or register for a trial version.

VisionX 5.6 is available

I'm happy to announce that VisionX 5.6.457 is available.
It's one of this magic moments where everything is perfect.

VisionX 5.6 is the biggest update after 5.5. It contains many bugfixes but even more new features. The new features are described here. We still have so many ideas to improve the development process and to help people creating own (enterprise) applications, so be curious what else is to come.

After a release is before the next release, so our next release will focus on UX and Smart Bricks. A smart brick is a small unit with big features. Think about user management. Sounds simple, but can be complex if you think about user and roles. Such simple thing can be a smart brick in VisionX. Simply use the user management smart brick and get full support for user and roles management without additional thinking.

We're going to do a little update to our UI designer to save mouse clicks and make simple things even easier.

If you have a question or want to know more details, just leave a message.

The download area already contains links to the latest version of VisionX.
Have fun, creating your own applications.

VisionX 5.6 - New quick design mode

With VisionX 5.6 it will be possible to open the design mode a little bit faster. Simply start an application, press Shift + Ctrl and click the element with left or right mouse. The left mouse key will start the design mode and automatically selects the element. The right mouse key will open the customizer as well.

The quick design mode also shows the name of the element, if you need the information for css customization.

And this is how it looks like:

VisionX 5.6 - New hidden feature for developers

Upcoming version 5.6 has two hidden features. More interesting for Java developers than for Citizen developers. The first feature makes it possible to include external application directories.

Usually, you start creating a new application with VisionX. The location is <visionx_install_folder>/rad/apps/<appname>. This is not the best place if you have your own directory structure or if you want to use a VCS like git or subversion. In this case, no worries. Simply copy the application folder to the right place and drag the folder back into VisionX. An information message will be shown and everything is done. If you delete such "linked" application, only the link will be removed. This hidden feature replaces manual usage of apps.xml in your rad directory. It was a manual task which is not necessary anymore.

The second hidden feature is in the main screen of VisionX. If you press Shift + Alt, two new icons will appear for every application:

New options for an application

New options for an application

A click on the first icon will open the application directory in system explorer and the second icon will import or open the application in a running Eclipse installation, if EPlug is installed.

Both features are a big help in your daily work with VisionX.
