    Post Wakanda Studio Reference Guide Updated

    The Wakanda Studio Reference Guide has been updated to describe the following enhancements and modifications in the Development Branch of Wakanda for the Datastore Model Designer and the GUI Designer:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Datastore Model Designer
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Display Formats
    For attributes of type String, you can now define a display format to put the string in either uppercase or lowercase letters, or capitalize the first word or each word in the string.

    On Restricting Query Event
    The On Restricting Query datastore class event is now available for all datastore classes and not just extended classes.

    Autocomplete Property for String Attributes
    A better explanation was included for the Autocomplete property. We also added a better explanation and example for the Auto Form and Text Input widgets.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GUI Designer
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WYSIWYG Editor Widget
    We have just added the WYSIWYG Editor widget.

    New Property for Menu Bar
    The Items Margin property was added to the Menu Bar widget.

    Menu Bar and Menu Item Styles
    The Menu Bar and Menu Item styles were updated.

    Dialog Widget
    We added the new "Float on top" property and added more information regarding how to publish the Dialog widget.

    Button Widget
    The Button widget has been modified and no longer accepts images for the different states of the widget. To add an image to a button, you can now use the new Image Button widget.

    Icon Widget
    We have added a new Icon widget, which is also the image portion of the Image Button widget.

    Login Dialog
    You can now hit the Return key to log in after entering a username and password.

    Format Property
    For the Grid, Text Input, and Text widgets, you have the Format property in which you can define how the text value is formatted. You can also format strings to put them in either uppercase or lowercase letters, or capitalize the first word or each word in the string.

    New Options for Selecting a Widget on the Designer Workspace
    New options were created to help you to easily select a widget and/or one of its subelements as well as a widget inside of a Container widget.

    Select a widget Option
    When you select a widget on the Designer Workspace, you can select the new "Select a widget" option from the contextual menu to select a widget that is underneath another widget. [This option appears as "Select widget(s)" in today's build, but its name will be "Select a widget" in a future build.]

    Save as widget skin... Option
    The new Save as widget skin... option allows you to create a skin based on the styles defined for a specific widget in the Styles tab. Once you create the skin, you can then apply it to any other widget of the same type in your project. The skins for a widget are presented on the Skins tab.

    Updated Image and Icon Sections in Widget Overview
    We updated the "Image" and "Icon" sections in the Widget Overview chapter.

    Text Input Widget
    The labels for two of the properties were modified: "Allow calendar for dates" option was changed to "Enable datepicker" and "Display calendar when icon is clicked" to "Show datepicker button."

    New Property for Grid
    We have added a new property, Footer count text, to the Grid widget that allows you to customize the text displayed in the footer. [This option will be available in tomorrow's build.]

    On Row Draw
    An explanation of how to retrieve the cell's value in the row during the On Row Draw event.

    Updated Reserved Keywords
    We updated the list of reserved keywords.

    Note: A new PDF for the Wakanda Studio Reference Guide will be generated with the next release of Wakanda.

    Warm regards,
    Melinda

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GUI DESIGNER
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Interface Page modified for Smartphone and Tablet
    The properties have been added for Interface pages created for the Smartphone or Tablet:
    Viewport
    iOS Meta Tag
    Workspace

    New Canvas and Video widgets
    We added two new widgets: Canvas and Video.

    Select option modified
    The "Select a widget" option was modified and is now called "Select". From the hierarchical menu that appears, you can choose either a widget or a subelement of a widget. Once you select the widget or subelement, it will be selected. The properties for the selected widget will appear and the

    Grid Widget
    You can now format attributes of type Boolean in a Grid. If you enter two text values delimited by a semi-colon, e.g., "Married;Unmarried", two radio buttons will be displayed. If you enter nothing or one text value, a checkbox will be displayed.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DOCUMENTATION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Programming Conventions
    We have created a new manual that contains the programming conventions. This manual has two chapters that were originally in the Wakanda Studio Reference Guide: Naming Conventions and Reserved Keywords.

    Terminology
    We now have a separate manual containing the terminology for Wakanda.

    Warm regards,
    Melinda
