Lianja 5.6 will be the next general release.

I have uploaded Lianja 5.6Beta1 for Windows for those of you who have access to pre-release versions.

This is pre-release software so it should not be used in production.

Changes since 5.5.1...


  1. Virtual Tables bound to sections have much improved performance of section relationships. No need for custom code in the parentdatachanged delegate any more. The relationship is now satisfied using requery() on the child data source.
  2. Grid columns. New attribute, “Visible When Editing”. Columns are hidden until the grid row is being edited. This provides a better UI grid for mobile devices.
  3. Switching between Pages, Sections, Formitems and GridColumn attributes now maintains the “search” text. This speeds up the reviewing of attributes during development.
  4. When using the debugger with LianjaScript, clicking the “Stop” icon now cancels execution when the debugger is active.
  5. Lianja.showDialog() and Lianja.showDialogPanel() are now responsive in web / mobile. This can be seen when using the “QueryBuilder” on mobile devices.
  6. *new* App UiLibs. Design pages visually then add them to the App UiLib enabling them to be used with lianja.showDialog() and Lianja.showDialogPanel(). Check the page attribute “Register in UiLib”. The pages are not included in the pages menu but can be used with dialogs by specifying “page:pagename” as the file name.
  7. DialogPanels can be be shown on top of existing ones. So for example if a page in the UiLib contains a grid section, then editing a row in the grid will overlay the grid with the “EDIT FORM” and clicking “Done” or “Cancel” will switch back to the previous DialogPanel i.e the grid section. This provides smoother UI transitions and a better mobile experience when screen size is limited.
  8. Various UI tweaks and improvements.
  9. Performance and stability improvements.
  10. Various bug fixes.
