Is a "undo" function available for Ninox Online?
Or how can we do if we don't want to save changes?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Have a nice day,
I wish there were a global undo function for actions in general. I know this is dependent on what ninox is used for but this does feel like an oversight in general. No way to undo entry creation, or just simply undo the last entry you have modified. My set up has multiple variables for each entry that the user has to pay attention to so it would be nice if they could just ctrl-z and accident instead of having to manually unselect or redo a mistake.
Agree it is a pain
I have just move my accounts into the cloud (Sage Cloud) and guess what ? it is exacly the same
once left the field the record is saved - too late !!!!
Maybe a x number of moves roll back would be a good Ideapage or at best a page roll back
suppose it depands on how big an issue Ninox see it as
You might want to revist your Undo Example as currently is is NOT protected. I down loaded it and have full access to all script areas/hidden forms etc.
To adhere to your request and in respect of the help you have both given me and others on this forum - I have deleted the copy I downloaded.
Thank you for your concern and kind words. I presented the app during one of the Webinars about a year ago and Birger asked if I would unlock it so I did and I moved on to other projects and forgot about it. I apologize for not posting that information, and really, it would have been useless for most people if it was protected. For anyone who is interested, please download a copy and feel free modify it to suit your needs. I read the entire thread a little while ago and had a good chuckle at "30 yrs Software Developer" person's comment. I am not a professional programmer and I kind of took that as a challenge.
Regarding command-z. I'm afraid I don't see it being all that useful for a database. Look at how Apple implements it in Numbers. It is Last in, First out so you don't get a list you can choose from. Also, once you close the app any undos remaining are lost.
Any use case that requires data integrity will implement some type of audit trail and my simple example has that. I think the popup Add and Edit forms are clunky now and would instead use a field for display and a field for editing and get rid of the "Contacts Add" and "Contacts Edit" forms.
Btw, I updated the CSS UI hack last night so if you see the Printer, Trash, Duplicate and Add icons the formula should be updated.
I think they changed the class names with version 3.0
It actually doesn't work in Table view. The reason the printer, trash and duplicate icons are dimmed is because there isn't a record selected.
This is a hack and I imagine it's not one the developers intended. A Formula field with that hack must be on every form in the database in order to hide those icons in Form view. The Formula field can't be hidden using "Display field only, if:". You can hide the label and set the Formula field's background color to white which will camouflage it.
