Recommendations & Notes

  1. AppsBuilder Release 1 (build introduced the feature that allowed you to convert all the code from one language syntax to another. As this feature has still not fully matured,
    2. This process does NOT create a new copy of the project but rather converts the existing one. Note that in this version of AppsBuilder it is NOT possible to convert to Pascal syntax.
  2. Sample Projects are now in Morfik 07 folder under My Documents folder.
  3. Morfik.cfg file is now created in the following folder "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Morfik 07". This will allow developers to keep their AppsBuilder settings and profile unchanged in the upgrade process.
  4. The license for Morfik Professional users can now be placed in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Morfik 07" folder and can be used with future releases.

New Features

  1. Smart ‘make’ process resulting in significant improvement in incremental compile times
    1. The browser-side compiler has been optimized.
    2. Reduction in the frequency of server-side compilation.
  2. Morfik AppsBuilder now uses the firebird client library name (fbClient.dll) instead of the InterBase one (gds32.dll).
  3. Open instances of AppsBuilder now displays the name of the opened project in the task bar, thus when multiple instances of the AppsBuilder are open, the developer can easily identify a particular open project.
  4. Microsoft Windows Vista supported

Bug Fixes

  1. IDE
    1. Issues running AppsBuilder on Microsoft Windows Vista including running XApps in debug mode
    2. Copy/Paste on Table objects occasionally lead to 'Access Violation'.
    3. Using a SQLFilter on WebFormCreate, deleted any other user-defined Form parameters.
    4. The Tools / Environment Options, prior to a project being loaded, was inaccessible.
    5. Using the Listbox.Text property in the Listbox.OnChange event caused a premature exit (and a silent exception to be raised) from the event handler.
    6. It was not possible to display the value of the DateTimeEdit control when the OnChange event was fired.
    7. If one created a Table with a field called "x", then Single forms would not show the data in its field.
    8. Pointer values were incorrectly displayed (all values had an extra 8 added to the end) in Watches while debugging.
  2. XApp
    1. The SQLFilter did not work if it contained any double quote charcters
  3. Languages
    1. Attempting to break/exit out of for loop caused a compile error.
