Have you heard the news? Scriptcase has a new release (v.9.2), and today we will take a look at some of the changes made and the features added so far. And if you haven’t signed to our Youtube channel, now it’s a great time to do so, we bring videos and seminars with interesting stuff so you can take it and use to your advantage.
And to begin with, we have decided to remove the version number out of the product name, so we are not going to use “ Scriptcase v9.2 “ anymore. From now on it’s just “Scriptcase”, and this is going to be part of a new approach that we are taking to improve our services and of course our own product.
The idea is to return with versions and updates more frequently than before, so, instead of taking a year, or months to gather a bunch of new features and changes, we now plan to give customers a more consistent and closer approach.
The first thing that you need to know is that you won’t need to convert your projects to the latest version, because the update will occur on the same environment than the v9.1. So there’s no need to install/reinstall anything, no conversion needed as well.
The Form, Calendar, Control and Grid applications have received new field types, which i will give you details below.
Select2: This is a new option added to the Select and Auto-Complete field types that will provide more performance and accuracy to the select results. This new component allows you to search within the search result, limit the characters and number of records displayed as well.
Digital Signature Field: Allows the user to use his finger, mouse pointer or a digital pen to make signatures or drawings, the information is stored in the database with an image format. This is also available for the Grid application.
Rating Start Field: This field allows the user to qualify with stars (or any other image given), where its possible to select the classification according to a scale previously configured. This is also available for the Grid application.
Slider Field: This is available for integer fields, the field will show a slider component (jQuery range) to allow the user to select a value within a range defined in the application.
Switch Toggle Field: This one is available for radio and checkbox field types, the switch uses a “JS iOS toggle” component to check the values on the Form.
Ok, i think this is all for today. I hope you all enjoyed the news, and if you think that this is all we have prepared for you, you are wrong! Cause we still have a lot to cover within this particular release, and it will get even better because we have also prepared a new CRM system, answering to many requests. Ok, i dont want to spoil anything!
If you want to give a closer look to the new features and components available in Scriptcase v9.2, there is a page with new sample applications available for testing purposes.
Just a quick disclaimer:
To be able to use all the new features and components presents in this new version, your license must have an active update period. Otherwise you would have to perform an update renewal. In case you need to do that, i strongly suggest you to check our Online Store, we are still offering a 40% discount for new purchases and renewals as well!
Hope to see you guys next time!
