AppGini 5.11 changelog

Post by a.gneady » 2013-06-20 11:14

Hi all!

I'm glad to announce the availability of AppGini 5.11. This is a minor bug fix release, and the pro version is available to all users who were eligible to upgrade to AppGini 5.10 (that is, all users who ordered on or after June 10, 2012. Following is a list of changes since 5.10:
  • Added error checking to prevent circular references (table A being both a parent and a child of table B) during app generation.
  • Relabeled "multiple-selection" to "multiple-choice" for clarity
  • Fixed a bug in cascading lookups where an SQL error occurred if the filterer field name was not the same in the current table as in the parent table
  • Added a 255 limit on field length box for char and varchar data types
  • Added an error check when the length of the default value exceeds field length.
  • Fixed a bug with the suggested path for saving the file generation log.
AppGini: Responsive, collaborative web db apps in minutes.

Ahmad,

Thanks for this update. Quick question. How would we create a text field that is meant to hold very long text (ie longer than 255) but also is not mean to be RTF?

Thanks,
Kerem

Kerem,

Just specify the data type as "text", "big text" .. etc. The 255 limit is applied only to char and varchar and is in accordance with mysql rules.
