Re: additional notes field in builder

I would like to revive this suggestion. I just went back to a project from a few years back. As I couldn't put developer notes into the Description field, and as I'd since misplaced or erased or otherwise could not find my notes... it would have been VERY USEFUL to have had app/table/field notes in ...

Re: [Need Help] JS Disable Select2 Not Working

Thanks everyone. For now - in order to move on to other things - I'll stick with my solution. Jan, it's an internal app in a small company, so I'm not too worried about anyone hacking. If they do and get caught, the owner would very likely terminate them. It's just a convenience effect anyway. peebe...

Re: [Need Help] JS Disable Select2 Not Working

I have found that using #ELEMENT-container does not work. I've tried setting multiple attributes using that selector and jquery seems never to find the select2. That's why I resorted to the "#parent select" selector method. However, that's a hack as it operates on EVERY select that's a child of the ...

Re: [Need Help] JS Disable Select2 Not Working

AppGini 5.72 Chrome 71 I did find a kludge by identifying a parent element and then setting every child select read-only. $j("#parent-element select").select2("read-only", true) This works for me only because when the read-only condition is needed it includes every select2. I'd still be up a creek i...

How about three clicks? 1. click post reply 2. Click on either the :D smiley if it worked or the :( smiley if it didn't work. 3.

Re: Automatically patch generated files: How to?

I used to do this, but have since made all my changes via the files in hooks. That said, back when I DID make changes in generated files, I never did find a way to patch automatically within the builder app. I posted a suggestion that the AppGini builder needs hooks to execute a command before/after...

I'd recommend investing in the Udemy course. It will have you teaching AppGini to sing and dance in no time.

Re: Make field read only

I'm not sure if it impacts the select2 library, but I'd check your results. With a normal select (or input field, etc) field, if you disable the field and then save the form you will have empty fields stored to your database. I'd recommend testing whether this is also true of select2().

Re: Make field read only

Just out of curiosity, have you tried the code I suggested in the table's .dv file?

I don't recall if I ever tested it with a select control, but then again I might have :)

Re: New checkbox on field + new option in default >>Auto

Have you taken the Udemy course? If not, you should. It's well worth the investment. The course covers very nicely how to do everything needed in order to create pseudo-keys of the type you're wanting. No, there's not a specific topic on building such a key, but all the techniques needed to do so ar...

Re: New checkbox on field + new option in default >>Auto

For multi-field keys to work properly, the individual components should be padded to a fixed length and then concatenated. The issue of text case also has to be addressed. Is the key built using field values as is, converted to upper case, etc? And what of date values - are they used in text represe...

sjohn, As an author and/or contributor of several open source (and before that, shareware) applications, I can say with confidence that Ahmad has to also balance the complexity of each new added feature against his ability to subsequently support it.

Re: Composite primary key

I realize multi-field keys are commonly used. My point is, since it's not a feature AppGini supports, and I'd argue it's not a crucial feature in an AppGini-style application, then: 1. Why would Ahmad expend his time to add support for them into AppGini? 2. Why would you expend your time to find a w...

Re: Composite primary key

I have not an answer, but a question. Is your application so large or busy as to truly benefit from an optimization such as multi-field keys? In my experience, unless you're dealing with large record sets (many tens or hundreds of thousands of rows) or have a very busy transactional system - there's...

The better way to handle this, in my experience, is to use an address table. Customer A moves? Add the new address in the address table, and then in the Customer A record select the new item from the address table. In your transaction records, make sure they contain an address_id field and that it g...

Re: store VALUE instead ID

Right, if you find javascript difficult, I think there is no easy (through the builder interface) to do what you want.

If you know even a moderate amount of javascript, though, it shouldn't be too challenging.
