5.75: Rebuild fields ignored existing fields in database

Post by onoehring » 2019-06-12 18:14

Hi,

I have some "old" fields still in the tables, but the rebuild does not even see them.
Bug? Annoyance at least. Maybe there should be a hint and/or these fields should also be listed.

Not exactly a bug ... there are many scenarios where 2 or 3 AppGini or 3rd party apps access the same database and tables, and they might be designed to access only specific fields and ignore the rest. That's why we follow the safe approach of ignoring table fields that are not specified in the AppGini project. Allowing rebuild fields page to remove them could cause unwanted data loss.
