Lianja App Builder 6.0 Release

Released 31-Mar-2021

The version 6.0 release includes:

  • The set rushmore command enables or disables Rushmore-style (Visual FoxPro) index scanning optimization for NoSQL and SQL commands.
  • Set rushmore is on by default.
  • With set rushmore on, the speed of the following NoSQL commands is increased by optimizing the for condition, active filter condition or active rowfilter condition. Indexes should be created on the fields specified in the condition to enable the optimization. For optimum performance, use filtered indexes. Use of the upper() and/or lower() functions is not required: with set strcompare on (default), indexes and comparison operators are case insensitive.
  • With set rushmore on, there is also a major performance boost for very large tables when issuing SQL queries using the >, >=, < and <= operators. The = and == operators are always optimized.
  • Improved SQL optimizer with filtered indexes. (Hint: use the EXPLAIN command to see what's happening).
  • Added the BACKUP/RESTORE DATABASE and LIST BACKUPS commands. 
  • The 'IN |' clause has been added to the following commands: Note that the IN clause must be the first clause as IN is also an operator in Lianja.
  • Added new App attribute "Enable PerfMeter" which shows the perfmeter in the "Console" workspace for long operations.
  • Added a StatusBar to the console workspace. SET PERFMETER ON if you want to see a progress bar displayed in the StatusBar when performing long operations.
  • Page, section and formitems names can now contain _ in desktop/web/mobile apps.
  • Virtual Tables bound to sections have much improved performance of section relationships. No need for custom code in the parentdatachanged event delegate any more.  The relationship is now satisfied using requery() on the child data source.
  • Grid columns: new Only visible when editing attribute. Columns are hidden until the grid row is being edited. This provides a better UI grid for mobile devices.
  • Switching between Pages, Sections, Formitems and GridColumn attributes now maintains the search text. This speeds up the reviewing of attributes during development.
  • When using the debugger with LianjaScript, clicking the Stop icon now cancels execution when the debugger is active.
  • Lianja.showDialog() and Lianja.showDialogPanel() are now responsive in web / mobile.  This can be seen when using the QueryBuilder on mobile devices.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • New delegates for Grid sections. Interactive Change is called after a cell is edited. Row/Col Change is called when a cell is selected, before being edited.  Both are passed three arguments: nRow, nColumn, cValue.
  • New properties for Virtual Tables:
    • translatequeryfunction=function
      The function is called to translate a native Lianja SQL WHERE condition for a target SQL database syntax.
      It is called with two arguments: cWhereCondition, cDBtype.  It should reside in the database container.
    • convertuint=1
      Use this to correct the ODBC interpretation of BIT fields in MySQL.
    • datsourceoptions=options
      Where options are database specific, e.g. for ODBC to increase packet size:
      SQL_ATTR_PACKET_SIZE:102410
    • includeblobs=1
      Use this to cause varbinary fields to be saved to remote database servers in desktop Apps.  Currently supports MySQL, MSSQL and Postgres.
    • includememos=1
      Use this to cause varchar fields to be saved to remote database servers in desktop Apps.  Currently supports MySQL, MSSQL and Postgres.
  • Several improvements made to Image Strip Sections.
    • Image notes are now supported in the web/mobile client.
    • HTML image notes are now handled correctly.
    • In web/mobile Apps, the images are touch-friendly and can call the Double click event delegate.
    • Image notes are now editable: new attribute Image notes editable.
    • Touch or click the image notes text to display the slide-in dialog panel editor.
  • Improved error reporting.
  • Page, Section and Formitem names can now contain underscore characters (_) in desktop and web/mobile Apps.
  • Mailing label printing is now supported using the create label and label form commands.
  • The Console workspace now has a Statusbar.  The display of the Statusbar can be toggled from the View menu.
  • New set perfmeter command. With set perfmeter on, a progress bar is displayed in the Console workspace Statusbar when performing long operations.
  • Added new App attribute 'Enable PerfMeter' which shows the perfmeter in the Console workspace for long operations.
  • The Deploy workspace has been enhanced to allow package files to be built for a specified deployment target.  This also includes the ability to exclude files and use wildcard characters in filenames when defining the package file to facilitate team development.
  • Fixed a caching issue with very large SQL queries (millions of records) that would cause a crash.
  • Added additional information to dir command when no database open.
  • Added additional information to the list structure command with Virtual Tables.
  • Performance improvements when bulk loading tables using append from, append blank and generate. Set timeline off is automatically executed and turned back on afterwards.
  • Performance improvement when using the count command with no filter condition.
  • The Grid Section Summary can now optionally include Minimum, Maximum and Average column values along with the column Totals.  The 'Lianja Tablet Web UI Demo' (example_webapp1) App demonstrates this.
  • The Responsive UI breakpoint attributes have been added to the Generate App Doc output file.
  • Added improved package management for Team Development and Release Management in the Deploy workspace.  Packages can be created in the Deploy workspace then published to Team or Release GitHub repositories.  Options to Unpublish published packages and List published packages are also now available.
  • The lianja command can be used to install Lianja package files with automatic version checking.
  • The new lianja-lpk command can be used to install a Lianja package file or list its contents.
  • Available for macOS (Big Sur, 11.1), as well as Windows and Linux.
  • The macOS Lianja distribution is now notarized by Apple:
    • "Notarization gives users more confidence that the Developer ID-signed software distributed has been checked by Apple for malicious components."
    • "When the user first installs or runs your software, the presence of a ticket (either online or attached to the executable) tells Gatekeeper that Apple notarized the software. Gatekeeper then places descriptive information in the initial launch dialog to help the user make an informed choice about whether to launch the app."
  • The Linux license management utility, lianja-lm, has been enhanced to return additional information when validating the license with the --validate option.
    $ sudo lianja-lm --validate
  • Faster switching to home page on macOS and Linux.
  • The location of the Lianja 64 bit ISAPI extension for IIS has changed.  See ISAPI Extension for IIS for full details.
  • Arguments passed to an App using the --args command line switch, specified in Lianja.openApp() or included in a web App URL can now be queried using Lianja.args.
  • The new lianja-comp command line tool can be used to compile .prg script files.
  • The compare database command now includes all database events and generates an optimized upgrade.prg file.
  • App Doc now includes Grid columns.
  • The section attributes Visible when and Readonly when can now reference "this" and "thisform" e.g. readonlywhen could be set to !this.editing which causes the section to be readonly unless in edit mode.
  • The Enable when editing attribute is now supported on Form, Grid and Attachments sections as well as Canvas sections.  This is only effective in runtime mode.  It causes sections to be readonly until editing is in effect.
  • Exposed the "state" attribute for Page, Section and Formitem objects. "State" is a comma separated list of UI States that the UI element handles.
  • Exposed the "uistate" attribute for PageSection and Formitem objects and the Lianja system object. "Uistate" is the last UI State applied.
  • The SQL Select aggregate functions min() and max() now handle a list of arguments and additional data types: character, currency and datetime as well as date and numeric.
  • New list library command to list all currently loaded procedure and function libraries.
  • Split grid editing is now also supported in web/mobile Apps.
  • New split grid tabs for desktop and web/mobile Apps.  These can be configured to contain memo/varchar data, images and components.
  • New custom Grid object methods:
    • hideRow(nIndex)
    • hideAllRows()
    • showRow(nIndex)
    • showAllRows()
    The nIndex row number starts from 1.
  • New dynamically loadable modules provide Object Oriented encapsulation for existing Lianja/VFP code so that loading a library does not 'pollute' the namespace and create potential problems due to name clashes.
  • Simplified one-click deployment of packages to the Lianja Cloud Server (local and remote) in the Deploy workspace.
    • With Autoupdate enabled on the server, the packages will be auto installed/upgraded.
    • Locally deploy and test web/mobile Apps in Preview live in browser before uploading.

    • You can now write delegates in Python not just for desktop, but also in Web and Mobile.
    • If you want to experiment with Machine Learning you can now code in Python end-to-end: in the browser and on the server using exports.conf.
  • Python debugger improvements.
  • Python now provides dynamic binding to event handlers in custom Python code (same functionality as LianjaScript and JavaScript), e.g.
    object.click = my_click_function
  • Visual Components built in the Canvas Designer can now use Python as the scripting language.  See below for more new Visual Components functionality.

Visual Components Improvements

  • Visual Components built in the Canvas Designer can now use LianjaScript, JavaScript or Python as the scripting language.  Previously only JavaScript was supported.
  • New Visual Component/Form Manager (enhanced Component Gallery)
    • 'NEW' button to create a new component opens/creates the mycomponents App with a new Page and Canvas Section.
    • Double-click a component's tile to open its containing App to edit the component.
    • Navigate between editing components in different Apps with 'Back' and 'Home' buttons.
  • When a Canvas Section is saved as a Visual Component, the component is saved in the current App as well as the specified components directory.  This provides the ability to visually design component forms in LianjaScript/VFP, JavaScript and Python.
  • New Lianja.showDialogForm() Lianja system object method to activate component forms.
  • New initForm event delegate for Canvas Sections. This delegate is called when a Visual Component form is activated. You can open a database and the database tables required by the component form in this delegate. Note that activating a form will automatically PUSH DATASESSION / POP DATASESSION so there is no need to do this.

Page Builder Assistant Improvements

New Cryptographic Hash Functions

  • Added several new cryptographic hash functions. SHA-256 is a popular hashing algorithm used in Bitcoin encryption (and other blockchain applications):
    • sha256(cExp) - this returns the SHA256 cryptographic hash for the specified character string.
    • sha256file(cFilename) - this returns the SHA256 cryptographic hash for the specified file.
    • sha256record([alias]) - this returns the SHA256 cryptographic hash for the current active record.
    • crc32record([alias]) - this returns an 8 byte hexadecimal value (a cyclic redundancy check) for the current active record.

Additional New Functions

  • New function tableSeqno(cDatabase, cTable). You can use this to apply a default seqno() in client/server Web Apps. If you use seqno() in a default value for a column then when the App is generated as a Web or Mobile App seqno() will automatically be translated to use tableSeqno().
  • New gmtime() function to return a datetime expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). 

Debugging Improvements

  • New Form method to help in debugging custom forms: printObjectTree().
    // example output:
    form::form [visible=0, height=700, width=700]
        mycontainer5::container [visible=0, height=480, width=640]
            myheader5::label [visible=0, height=40, width=156]
            grid5::grid [visible=0, height=192, width=256]
  • New writeoutput() function and ? > command that can be used in server-side Lianja Server Pages in Web Apps to assist in debugging.
    1. Add the set debugout on command to the .rsp script along with writeoutput() or ? > calls.

Additional Improvements

  • Added a new Web/Mobile App Setting: Disable success notifications. This operates in Web/Mobile Apps to disable the 'noise' from successful operations such as updating records, uploading images etc. Notifications only occur when an error occurs.
  • Improved SQL compatibility with Visual Foxpro.
  • SQL optimizer improvements and fixes resulting in an overall speed boost.
  • Improved garbage collection.
  • UI datetime date display format now defaults to the system locale.  It can be changed using the set dateformat command.
  • Improved deployment. Select only those files to be deployed and they will be compiled if required and then deployed. Use 'Preview' first to verify the files that will be deployed.
  • When saving data as xml/excel (SELECT or COPY) any invalid characters are now escaped.
  • Usability improvements in grid editing.
  • Many Canvas Designer improvements.
  • Minor UI improvements.
  • Performance and stability improvements.
  • Various bug fixes.

Lianja App Builder 8.0 Release

Expected release 2022

The version 8.0 release will include:

  • Lianja Cloud release with various Cloud App Builder tools.
    • Form Builder
    • Report Builder
    • Chart Builder
    • Script Builder
    • App Builder
  • New: Build Apps faster than ever with 'Relationships'. Drag 'n' drop a Relationship onto a Page to create a section for each table in the relationship and have them be automatically related on the page. The optional 'attributes' can be used to override automatic relationships and/or add additional functionality e.g. cascadedeletes. The table list can contain native Lianja tables and/or Virtual tables. A '+' prefix on a table name defines a one to many relationship which results in a Grid section otherwise it is a Form section. Columns included are determined by user roles and permissions. Metadata and DD business rules attached to the table and columns are inherited by the sections.
    create/alter relationship customer_orders[pageattributes] as customers[sectionattributes],+orders[sectionattributes],+order_details[sectionattributes]
  • New visual relationship builder tool in the data workspace. These 'Relationships' are added into the database container just as virtual tables are. You can USE a relationship which dynamically creates a SQL statement that joins the tables described by the relationship. When dragged into a page in the page builder the page is automatically generated.
  • New web based 'Form Builder' with a UI similar to the 'Report Builder'. 'Forms' can be designed by end users by simply dragging 'Relationships' onto a blank page. Once a form (page) has been created it can be saved and selected from the left sidebar files tree at runtime. This is based on the way the report builder operates. 'Forms' can be secured with roles and permissions. This provides secure end user development of forms using NoCode.
  • Performance and stability improvements.
  • Various bug fixes.
