Data Access Worldwide is pleased to announce that DataFlex 2017 / 19.0 Beta 1 is available. There are lots of changes between Alpha 2 and Beta 1 which you can read about in the “Beta 1 Build Notes” page of the What’s New section in the online help.
Some of the latest changes can be seen in the example workspaces:
Web Order Mobile – Beta 1 marks the debut of swipe gesture in cards. The Demo Techniques menu contains a “Swipable Cards” example. The Select Customer list now allows you to swipe right for access to the Customer Zoom and swipe left for access to list Customer Orders or delete. Another great new feature is the ability for grids to turn off scrolling with pbScroll, which loads the complete data set and turns on column sorting.
Order Entry Tab – The Order view demonstrates that not setting piMaxSize will allow the view to stretch to full size. Some of the fundamental behaviours of scrolling views has changed and the “Alpha 2 Build Notes | Scrolling and Tab Workspaces” section of the Help contains all the details.
Web Order – The Demo menu has been reorganized to make it easier to find the various examples. In particular, check out the Restful JSON Service view. If you haven’t yet looked into the full set of JSON improvements in DataFlex 19.0 then read the section on “JSON Parsing and Transfer”.
