The Design a Form Wizard has been adjusted for even easier start when desiging a completely new form application, so that it meets the basic design requirements.
A new tool, Assistant, is now available throughout the design process. It guides the user through the individual steps necessary for successful finalization and publication of a form application.
Form checks for pre-publication have been improved. Now they take into account the use of FormApps Server functions, the check result is available as a detailed list of errors and warnings.
Data bindings are now labelled by symbols showing whether the data item is bound to an attribute or element in the data structure.
It is now possible to bind data items (defined in the Design a Form Wizard) to form controls by dragging the data items directly, using the mouse, into form fields in the form layout.
The application has got a new name – FormApps Designer, which reflects the inclusion of this editor in the Software602 FormApps ecosystem – a solution for creating universally available form applications. Additionally, some bugs were fixed and dialogs improved. New icons were added and the application was further optimized.
