DaDaBIK 7.1 is out. This version introduces a new, long awaited, form field type: the RADIO button.
The new field type (select_single_radio) works very similar to select_single: you can fill the options using pre-defined values or values coming from a lookup table. You can also set cascade radio buttons and allow users to add custom values on the fly by clicking on the "other" option. DaDaBIK users asked for it many times and it's now finally here. You can see an example in our online demo (movies library demo -> movies table, look at the format field)
As we did for v. 7.0, to promote the adoption of the new DaDaBIK 7.1 Enterprise, for just 7 days (until Dec 21st) IT WILL BE ON SALE AT €95 instead of €160. You can buy DaDaBIK 7.1 here.
As usual, if you are in your free upgrade timeframe (1 year for DaDaBIK Enterprise, 6 months for DaDaBIK PRO), you can request your free copy from the upgrade page.
If you have a DaDaBIK ENTERPRISE license and you are out of your free upgrade timeframe, you can also get DaDaBIK 7.1 by purchasing a maintenance license (€65), which also provides you with an additional year of free upgrade (email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the instructions).
There are also a couple of other new features:
1) Custom formatting functions now take in input, for select_single/select_multiple fields having more than one linked field, each linked field value singularly. This allows you to have more control on the output e.g if you have, as linked fields, the name and country of a customer, you can format the value setting the the country between parenthesis, to get something like: John Smith (USA)
2) An additional button is now displayed in the EDIT form right after SAVE and BACK: SAVE+BACK; in one click you save the content of the form and you come back to the results grid, making repetitive data entry operations faster.
Finally, the Danish language is now available.
This version also fixes some bugs, the most important fix is related to a problem with the Form Configurator which could retrieve and consequently save the wrong values for the "form presence" ("Field present in the insert form?" etc) parameters. Please read the changelog for all the details.
I hope you will enjoy this new version.
Merry christmas, happy holidays and happy new year to everybody!
