February, 2008

This release will provide a much-improved browser debugging experience. Instead of using the Microsoft Script Debugger, Morfik is now using Mozilla technology.

New Features
This release will provide a much improved debugging experience. At the heart of all the improvements is the switch in the underlying technology of browser side debugging. Instead of using the Microsoft Script Debugger Morfik is now using Mozilla technology.

This change has made it possible to debug both browser and server side code at the same time in a seamless manner. Until now the AppsBuilder IDE could only debug on portion of the application, either browser or server, at the same time. This should greatly enhance productivity as at any time during execution of an application the developer can just click on a line to set a breakpoint.

To view the intermediate source in this version, go to "Debug\Debugger Options …" and tick the Intermediate source debugging check box. You will see two new tabs next to Properties and Explorer tabs with a list of the intermediate source files.


  1. Multi-Column continuous forms now work correctly when browsing through pages.
  2. The menu view/debug views and the log type checkboxes are now displayed correctly.
  3. No more SQL errors when copying tables from one project to another project with different charset used for the tables in the databases.
  4. The vertical scroll bar for forms in the form designer now gets updated correctly to show the full height of the form. Also issues with not being able to scroll down to the bottom of the form have been resolved.
  5. It is now possible to add more than one instance of SET-COOKIE to the HTTP response header.
  6. Error and Search Panels can now be turned on or off through View menu.

This maintenance update is a complete installation (and not a software patch to the existing installed version of Morfik). You may uninstall previous versions of Morfik, however this is not required, and the new update can co-exist next to the previous versions.

bug_yellow32.png Known Issues

Following is a list of known problems with Morfik release (some with a suggested workaround) which will be fixed in future updates or releases:

  1. When previewing xApps in the new debug browser, certain xApps may display error messages that are related to "Parsing" or "Unknown" CSS properties. These messages will not have any negative impact on your applications. We are aware of them and working on these issues which will be resolved in upcoming releases. We are taking the utmost care in addressing each individual message to ensure that cross-browser compatibility is not affected.
  2. If the WordWrap property for a TextEdit control is set to true, it will not be possible to enter "New Lines" in the TextEdit controls if used within IE browser. This issue does not exist in other browsers. The fix for this will be included in the next release.
  3. In order to run WebOS AppsBuilder successfully on MS Windows Vista, you may have to turn the Windows Vista's UAC (User Account Control) off.
