QAFE Installer 3.4.0 Release

This week QAFE Installer 3.4.0 has been released for everyone to use. Downloads for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux can be found on our download-page. The latest release contains some new features and improvements to the current functionality.

JavaScript

First up, integration with JavaScript has been implemented. This makes it much easier to integrate your QAFE application with other Javascript libraries. The call-script built-in has been introduced to call any JavaScript method with parameters included in the web page. It is also possible for a JavaScript method to call a QAFE event. Using this new built-in it is now possible to for example integrate an Oracle Forms application into the QAFE application. Both situations are described in our previous blogs listed below.

 QAFE Installer 3.4.0 ReleaseNOTE: This will only work when client-side handling is enabled!

Datagrid import

The import functionality of a datagrid has been extended. Previously, the import functionality would always overwrite the currently displayed data in a datagrid. An extra attribute, import-action, has been introduced with two possible values: add and set. The default option is set, which will overwrite all currently displayed data in a datagrid. The other option, add, will cause the application to append the data to the end of the currently displayed data within a datagrid. The default option is set, which corresponds to the import functionality of the datagrid as it was before. For more information, please check the HOWTO listed below.

Stackpanel

Another addition is the ability to select and thus visually expand a specific stack within a stackpanel, when opening a window. The selected attribute has been added for the stackpanel, where the id of the selected stack has to be filled in.

It is now possible to have a more flexible layout, specifically a fluid layout. This means that the elements within a layout will be positioned based on the size of the screen. This will work for both SDI (single document interface) and MDI (multiple document interface) mode. This is done purely using CSS. The HOWTO listed below will explain the functionality in more detail.

Client-side handling

Several improvements have been made to the client-side handling introduced in QAFE 3.3.0. Including fixes for multiple data types being sent between the front-end and back-end. For now, client-side handling is still optional, but will be made default in the future.
