OpenXava 4.7.1 released
May 28, 2013
Although OpenXava 4.7.1 is a maintenance version with many bug fixes it also has some new interesting features such as:
- Possibility of aligning by columns in the root view.
- The images gallery editor uses a dialog.
- Russian documentation improved.
Aligning by column is available for root views
Until now # symbol for aligning columns was only available for groups and sections. From now on it's also available for the root view. That is, if you define a @View as following:
@View( members= "number, description;" + "family, subfamily;" + "unitPrice, unitPriceInPesetas;" )
However, now you can define the view in this way:
@View( members= "#number, description;" + // Note the # "family, subfamily;" + "unitPrice, unitPriceInPesetas;" )
To get this:
Moreover, if you add the entry alignedByColumns=true in xava.properties all the views of your application will be aligned by column even if you do not specify the #.
The images gallery editor uses a dialog
Until now the gallery images editor took the current view space. Now, it uses a dialog to show the images without losing the context, in the same way that occurs with other elements as references and collections.
See changelog for the complete list of new features and fixes.
