At present if you have a query that expands rows to show a sub query and then want to have output from an operation on that query then you have to get into the depths of javascript.

I'd like an additional output option 'directed to' with the ability to select the VP, frame, tab and panel.

There are times when filters might have to work differently that do not lend themselves neatly to using multiple forms or even multi step forms.

I have a form where I have two combo boxes, Company (Publisher) and Employee (Editor).
Sometimes a user will know the Editor that they want to use in which case they want to be able to select the Editor and populate the Publisher field. Other times they might know that they want to contact someone at a specific publisher.

At the moment I can make Editor a cascade filter on Publisher, but I cannot search for the Editor until I choose the Publisher.

Ideally I'd be like to be able to see all Editors in my find, UNLESS I have selected a Publisher in which case I'd like to see only the Editors at that Publisher.

This is possible, take a look at this post:

Support - When do you expect this app to be available?

Here's a video showing cool grid filtering "by values" - thats available in Google Sheets.
Hadn't done much in sheets in years, but a customer sent me a long sheet and I was playing with it and noticed how easy filtering was.

No reason we can't get back a Distinct value list for a column to assist in filtering. Does Kendo offer this?

If I make a grid that shows Invoices, "All invoices" lets say, then I have to have a column for a user to filter on to select Open/Closed. User sees All Invoices when starting the grid, and must Filter with O or C.

OR, I can make "Open Invoices" and copy that grid and have redundant "Closed Invoices"

Then, I can have 2 Menu items -- Open Invoices, & Closed Invoices with no need to filter, of course now I have a duplicate query and extra maintenance is needed when the user/client needs a column change.

OR, I can have 1 Query with the more complex Query that checks a value in LIRU (LoggedInRegularUser), and then I still need 2 menu options, each has to call a Process which updates LIRU with a flag, THEN runs the Query.

OR I can do some funky Custom Header stuff and make some buttons and do AwareApp.startprocess2 stuff to call a process, set the flag(s) in LIRU, then the Query refreshes.

Its just none of this is elegant or very RAD.

If I'm running a Query from a Menu, why can't I have some literal string to pass in that gets appended to the "Textual Query" that was built?
Or why can't instead of altering the SQL Query, pass in a Filter value as a starting point for the Grid?
There's so much more tweaking that can really help grids.

Is the fact that we're behind the current Kendo Releases the issue?
I keep going back to that Demo Kendo app I posted about - that app is far superior to any Aware App that I've ever seen. Why? Because they are more closely connected to Kendo than we are. Ironically, we're a development tool that [supposedly] uses Kendo 100%, and yet Aware doesn't support all the Kendo variables/options for given components, so we're left to decipher the Voodoo JS [mostly] on our own.

The option for Aware to automatically discover/create attributes based on a JSON file/reply. Many REST api´s respond with JSON and it´s tedious having to create the JSON structure in AwareIM attributes and having an option where we could either type in a direct URL to a REST api (which would then get a JSON reply) or just paste a JSON file into some part of Aware and Aware would then create all attributes, child/relationships etc. etc. needed to fully "receive" the reply would simplify things a lot.

Another thing that would be useful in Aware is JSON function (s), the option to via rules/function parse JSON and what other JSON operations might be useful.

A better "crossreference" view where we can see all intelligent BO channels etc. configured for a BSV, which type and under which BO so we don´t have to open each BO up and look etc..

Here is my wish list for the next release:

1 - Do not store license key inside Database.
2 - B.O : setting "Null" property attribute and "Unique" property attribute
3 : Forms and Querys : manage conditional visibilty and conditionnal attribute input access, attribute colors and font properties
4 : Undo functionnality in Form designer
5 : Possibility to redefine BO property attribute inside form designer (Required,Initial value, choice values, Min/Max valeur, format)
6 : add toolbars with "favorites shorcuts" to navigate directly to an object (BO, process, query, VP, ect...) whitout keep it open as Tab.
7 : Control Panel : Define multiple Database Drivers connexion. i.e : define different application using different Database on the same AIM server.

If you are using a tab to build a complex BO (I.e. one that relies on multiple sub BOs and needs the use of pseudo forms built with layouts) then you don't have a mechanism to easily handle the user abandoning the BO by closing the tab.

The tab can grab a BO into context when it is given focus but you can't do anything when the tab is blurred (ie the opposite of focus).

It would also be good to have focus and blur for other fields and to use these common terms in the Config Tool

Colors, fonts, format can be done now using presentation rules
