  • It would be so handy to be able to add comments in the code like in a real program 😍

    // Update the fields of Table1 DynamicMultiChoice with the values of the MultipleChoice field
    do as server
        // Pour chaque enregsitrement
        for t in select Table1 do
            // update the DynamicMultiChoice field
            t.(DynamicMultiChoice := for i in t.split(concat(MultipleChoice), ", ") do
                    // search for records in Table2 of each item selected in MultipleChoice
                    first(select Table2 where i = Text).ID
                end)
        end
    end

    In addition, it would allow you to remove bits of code temporarily to test others

    /* var a := for i in select Table2 do
            i.ID
        end;*/
    var a := (select Table2).ID;

  • The ability to use escape characters in template strings (---) so that the { and } characters can be inserted:

    var fieldName := "table";
    var value := "Table1"
    --- var i = \{ {fieldName} : {value} \};---
    

    result : "var i = { table : Table1 };"

    This would be very useful for building HTML/JavaScript strings

    Y axis data ranges for charts. I keep track of a daily market value which is alway between 150 and 250 and I don’t need the chart to go to zero.

    The ability to have different formatting of field based on device. The checkboxes are too small on an iPhone so it would be great if we can make them bigger if the user is on a small device.

    The ability to set a field as 'unique' and the 'required' field truly required.

    The most important thing here is that Ninox solves the bugs first, and then at least Plan some of these ideas and make them come true at least one or two

    • Rafael Good idea. We could list the bugs we would like to see fixed 😀.
      -> For my part, I would like the HTML function to work in the reports.

    Lost Radio Button, duplicate it on the MacOS, Android & Web, app on v3.6.6. Just to be clear this only happens on reference fields. Fix this.

  • Ability to sort tables / views on multiple fields. Sort by date and within that by name: standard practice on all db software. Cannot find the equivalent in Ninox.

  • More control on formatting a form.

    - If I want some space between two fields, adding a space element makes it look quite odd.

    - Adding a border element to fields - the Ninox version 3 was tough on the eyes - did not know where an element is. Had to use tab colours as contrast.

    Don't remember if this made the Christmas wish list.

    The ability to modify multiple field characteristics at once. Like the ability to set formatting for multiple number fields. Or the ability to set Display only if for multiple fields. Or any other characteristic, like binding etc.

    The ability to search your fields in the Edit Fields window. If you have a large quantity of fields then trying to find them can prove challenging since we can't sort them. So some ability to find fields quickly would be awesome.

  • Regrettably 😖

    You will recall that I uploaded and followed up the suggestions complied on list 1 (Christmas wish list 1). Not because we all thought it would guarantee implementation but one hoped that someone from the Ninox development team would cogitate on some of the ideas and maybe give consideration as to advantages/disadvantages/practicality and how often some of the member suggestions may have cropped up.

    Well - to date following several emails to support I have received in return ...... Nothing! It would have been nice to get a response even if it only said - thank you for the list we will consider it.

    I have to say that this is not normally the response I usually receive to my emails as they are often answered reasonably promptly.

    However as there is a little to asking for a reply I feel that on that basis there is little to be gained by adding any more to this thread....

    Apologies to those that have taken the time to add their comments 

    Mel
