Inconstant behavior of "after update" scripts

Hello

I already posted about this issue in

https://ninoxdb.de/en/forum/technical-help-5ab8fe445fe2b42b7dd39ee7/trouble-with-affecting-a-text-value-in-a-new-record-5d53cb404e061c58ea3a25e2?post=5d597e7d4e061c58ea3a26a2&page=1

I come back on this because it is so frustrating... This simple code placed in the "after update" of a texte field does not behave the same in ninox appli and in a browser.

With 2 text fields text1 and text2, set the after update of text1 to :

alert("eee"); text2:="iii"

In ninox app both instructions execute ; in brower only the second one...

am I the only one withe this issue?

best regards

 

Marc

    alert() and dialog() can not be called with the "onUpdate" trigger.

  • Hi Birger, thanks for your answer.

    So I wanted to underline that there is numerous things, code or links, or formatting, that work differently in Ninox mac App, in ninox Ipad app, in Ninox iphone app, in browsers; And someone can be disappointed when he or she developps a smart script on a platform that don’t wortk on another platform.

    I will prepare a list of such « differential behaviors » I noticed, that can help.

    best regards,

    Marc

    Hi Marc. As a rule f thumb: Everything that works in the browser will work in the App.

  • Birger,

     

    An exception to your rule appears to be the "HTTP" function.  It works in a "Trigger on Update" in a web browser but not in the Mac nor iPad apps.  Is there a list of all of the limitations of the functions on each platform and in each configuration (i.e. on click version on update)?
