GET_CHANGES is super useful and faster than building your own audit functionality.

At the moment it creates an HMTL field that uses the BO attribute names. This is good for debugging and developer uses but if you have given your attributes less user friendly names then it produces less user friendly output.

For example, if you use ps/pm ob/os/om prefixes then the output is a bit meaningless.

It would be great if there was the ability to make GET_CHANGES output based on the attribute labels. Appreciate that it is possible to have multiple labels depending on which form you are using but if we could access the BO label as the basic that would make things much better.

At the moment a field is either mandatory or not and if it is then the attribute on a Form gets the red *.

Sometimes though an attribute's mandatory state is not binary but based on some condition.
eg
Code: Select allIF Account.Status WAS CHANGED TO 'Closed' AND Account.ClosedDate IS UNDEFINED THEN...


We can make the business rules force it to be mandatory but we can't give the user a visual clue that this has become mandatory based on that changed status.

so, the standard answer, if you REALLY, ABSOLUTELY, HAD TO HAVE THIS TODAY, would be to add an HTML cell after your field, and conditionally display your indicator.
What a TERRIBLE way to do it. If you had complex forms (ie. more than 1 column) you'd pull your hair our trying to edit all those forms because of multi-column wonkyness (wonkiness?).

Thats similar to my 2 requests for
1) A trailing icon used to clear (set to UNDEFINED) a field - esp. a reference, like a combo box
2) A "zoom" button (like the automatic "+" to Add New Values on a reference Combo) which helps you drill down by calling another process/form to show more details.
(NOTE: You can do both of these now, but it requires an HTML cell after the field)

THIS "required" symbol is just 1 more thing that would be a great addition to this new functionality.
I'm sure the initial thoughts of Support are NO, or this is not worth the investment....
But this proves there's already 3 types of functions that could be enabled as an "after Attribute" property... kinda like the new Presentation Rules... now has STYLE, ICON, & 1 other all tied into that Rule Editor.

PS _And remember that a Tool Tip added to a Form Attribute has a nice dialog box - and presents a nice "?" mark for help text. So the mechanics are already there for Aware to do this.

Don't check Referred is great for making sure that a change on an invoice line bubbles up to the invoice, where it's not so good is when it is triggered by an Object change that is not related to that business rule, for example changing the Buyer name.

It would be good if you were able to selectively Don't Check Referred or Check Referred for these BOs.

Eg In a BSV with BO1.. BOn:
don't check referred from BO1, BO2, BO15
Or, better (though this is more akin to the check box being set to not ... unless)
Allow checked referred from BO4, BO6

Hi,

In Europe many countries have standardized for IBAN (International Bank Account Number) for the bank accounts. There are several checks that can be performed on an IBAN number to check it for correctness. Some of these can be handled easily in AwareIM, fi. country code and applicable length of the account number.

The check digit calculation is one I couldn't realize in AwareIM and had to fall back to a userfunction in Java. This is the only Java code I have ever written and it's a pain to support this code.

It would be nice if there was a function fi. CHECK_IBAN to check an IBAN number for correctness. For me it would suffice if this function only returned true/false for a correct/incorrect IBAN account number. No need to calculate the correct check digits for an incomplete number.

The IBAN account number setup is explained in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internati ... unt_Number

Thanks,

Gijs van Ballegooijen.

There are lots of REST calls that can do this (though it does mean sending data outside your app)

https://www.programmableweb.com/categor ... yword=Iban

Some quick research also pulls up Apache Commons Validator which seems to provide a series of routines for the validation of many different standards. No idea how complex this is but it may provide a faster mechanism to achieve this being integrated into AIM (but IANAJD) https://commons.apache.org/proper/commo ... dator.html

If this is a viable source then it provides validations for IBAN, ABA, EAN13, ISBN10/13 credit card numbers (format validity not account verification). I could use a bunch of these.

The label for an attribute is at the moment static, but this is limiting. For example bank accounts are highly localised but are localised at the instance level not the user, so i18n doesn't work here.

A bank account in the U.K. for example has a sort code, in Australia a BSB and in the USA an ABA. These are driven by the country of the bank account and not the location of the user. Changing the Country of the account I need the label to change to the appropriate label.

The current version for Aware is great as it can be customized for web (including accessing webapp on tablet/mobile) but when it comes to actually creating real, professional etc. native apps on IOS/Android, I think it´s limited. I have not dabled a lot with the current options though but think I know what can be done and is not enough for most scenarios I have. I am not entirely sure what can be done in terms of "native app builder" but some builder where we can in a visual way possibly create an entire native app (UI so entire app UI + logo + startup screen + colors etc. etc.) and where we can click and choose which native features the app should use e.g push notifications, camera, contacts, calendar, swiping, top device info bar integration, full screen option etc. etc. etc. etc. + better offline management + better security/login/profile e.g local on device saved credentials and profile so the user downloads and installs app and then configures it with credentials and the credentials is saved locally i.e the user then just opens the app and is already logged in etc.. + better online/offline detection/notification i.e when the user has no internet, a nice customisable notification is used and the app is closed of something like that + x, y and z.

Improving the mobile app experience would be an awesome advantage, will definately help in getting app approved on the iOS store. World is moving away from Desktop style devices and more onto Smartphones and Tablets so the mobile app should be a very big priority for AwareIM.

At the moment the Business Object Group tells you the Group Members and little else (I haven't used Presentations and I am still unsure as to their purpose).

It would be helpful if the BOG also displayed the common attributes that make the BOG, especially as peer relationships do not automatically get added to the group.

It would be even more helpful if you could see the attributes of the members marked as in or out of the group which would help when you've come back to something and can't find which BO is missing the attribute. Though I realise this becomes a UI challenge.

The ability to edit the BOG and add the attributes there and not have the repeated dialogue boxes ask. "Do you want to add this attribute to xyzzy Group". I have a lot of groups and this is fraught with potential for errors, which are then a nightmare to undo.

I don't understand what the problem is. "Localised" number formats are already supported - you need to select the appropriate culture when defining your locale.


Thank you for your reply.
Yes the decimal is respected!
Should this feature respect all the culture formatting or only decimal pointer? Because I have switched to "German" which has this format of numbering "123.456.789,00", but the digit grouping symbol is not present (it's displaying like this "12345,00")
