Ninext project

good evening to all, 

I create this post to organize the Ninext project. For those who are new to it, it is composed of several JavaScript modules that allow you to add badges on tabs and buttons, catch selection events on views, execute JavaScript from Ninox script, inspect dependencies between database fields.

This post is here to talk about the project and the procedure for those who would like to implement it in your databases. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that this is a test project that evolves regularly and I invite you to be cautious and not to use it on commercial databases for the moment.

The sources of the project are available and downloadable on Github
Thanks to all of you for all your messages of support and for your help to debug and make the project progress a little more every day 🙏.

I made the project initiation procedure evolve thanks to the precious help of M. Daaboul who told me that we could use the Ninox dialog box with HTML code. It is no longer necessary to create a window and an HTML field for this. You just have to copy the code below in the Trigger after open in the Options

 

var code := http("GET", "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/JacquesTur/Ninext/main/loadModules.html").result;
dialog("Ninext intialization", "<script>
window.exConfigLoadModules = {
    completion: false,
    badges: true,
    evalJS: true,
    viewEvent: true,
    buttonEvent : true,
    fieldsInspector: true,
    nativeJS: true,

    autoCloseDialog: true
};
</script>" + code, ["close"])

The dialog box will be displayed stealthily then disappear. If you want it to stay displayed with its "close" button, set the autoCloseDialog parameter to false.

    Still there it seems.  Doubt it matters but in the Badges line above you have betas not beta

      Alan Cooke It seems that it is the access to the GitHub server that is not working. What happens if you type this code into the console?

    Jacques TUR The day before yesterday I corrected all errors in my databases. Today I noticed, that there are 82 (!) new errors shown in your tool without any changes in the database. But none of them really exist. If I check the tables there are no errors. Could you check that?

    I recently made several updates to exFinder.js. This is part of the code that found the dependencies and error code for FieldsInspector and errorsViewer. I hope it is now stable and you can find all the code errors on your database. 

    The latest version is exFinder is V1.0.8

    The Ninext project continues !
    It is largely thanks to your support and messages that this is possible. Thanks to all of you 🙏

    🔧With the new version 3.8.x I had to modify the launcher.  Please use this code to trigger the update of your database to initialize Ninext: 

    var code := http("GET", "https://www.ninext.fr/_functions/ninext").result.code;
    dialog("Ninext initialization", html("<script ninext=''>
    " +
    code +
    "
    ninext.start({
        badges: true,
        viewEvent: true,
        buttonEvent : true,
        fieldsInspector: true,
        nativeJS: true,
        tableView: true,
        debugTracer : true,
        languages : false,
        errorsViewer : true,
        darkMode : false,      autoCloseDialog:  false })
    </script>"), ["close"])

     

    🔐You can see that the code address has been changed. In respect and support of the Ninox security policy, the Ninext source will no longer be shared on GitHub.
    I will probably ask you to register (create an account on the Ninext website) in the future to make the code even more secure. This does not change the fact that Ninext remains a free of charge.

    🐛Note: I have not yet had the opportunity to test whether all Ninext features are compatible with version 3.8.x. It is possible that you find bugs. If so, I thank you in advance for pointing them out to me.

      Jacques TUR These are great news. Thanks Jacques. If I copy the new code I get a error message that the function dialog(string, html,[string]) does not exist. What do I have to change?

      Hi Jacques,

      I've messed things up and hope you can help. I pasted your code as shown in Options above, but it didn't seem to work the way it had been previously so I pasted it into an init formula field as I had done in the past.  Now all I see is the message in the attachment and I'm unable to do anything in Ninox.  Can you help?

      rcrema To close the dialogue box when the button is off the screen, simply press the Enter key after the dialogue box is displayed.
      What is your version of Ninox?

      Here's the onselect I have currently:

      function onselect(selectedID : text) do
          let q := first(select Registration where Id = selectedID);
          popupRecord(q.Students);
          true
      end;
      let x := userEmail();
      let y := number('Period Chooser');
      let z := lower(text('Dashboard Student Search'));
      if y = 8 then
          select Registration where 'User email' = x and contains(lower(text('Student Full Name')), z)
      else
          select Registration where 'User email' = x and cPeriod = y and contains(lower(text('Student Full Name')), z)
      end

      Jacques TUR No, we have 3.7.15 on premise. So old code does not work anymore because there is no Ninext on github. 3.8.* does not exist for on premise. Is there a posibility to get Ninext run on version 3.7.* without github?

      Sorry Maurice  Maurice, I removed GitHub without thinking about those still using the 3.7.x versions.

      I've been working this morning to find a solution and this code should keep you running:

      var res := http("GET", "https://www.ninext.fr/_functions/ninext", {
              version: "2.0.8"
          }).result;
      dialog("Ninext initialization ver " + res.version, "<div style='white-space: normal;' ; id='exLoadModule'></div>
          <script>
      debugger;
      window.exConfigLoadModules = {
      
          badges: true,
          viewEvent: true,
          buttonEvent : true,
          fieldsInspector: true,
          nativeJS: true,
          tableView: true,
          debugTracer : true,
          languages : false,
          errorsViewer : true,
          darkMode : false,
      
          autoCloseDialog: false };
      " + text(res.code) + "</script>", ["close"])

      Unfortunately, you will not be able to take advantage of the latest Ninext update because some evolutions of Ninox have forced me to modify my code and it is not fully backwards compatible. This currently affects the ViewEvent module which handles onclick and onselect events.

      If you are not using this module, you can use the other initialisation code by simply deleting the html() function. You will then have all the updates from Ninext :

      var code := http("GET", "https://www.ninext.fr/_functions/ninext").result.code;
      dialog("Ninext initialization", "<script ninext=''>
      " + code + "
      ninext.start({
          badges: true,
          viewEvent: true,
          buttonEvent : true,
          fieldsInspector: true,
          nativeJS: true,
          tableView: true,
          debugTracer : true,
          languages : false,
          errorsViewer : true,
          darkMode : false,      autoCloseDialog:  false })
      </script>", ["close"])

      Let me know if it works properly

    I realise that in the code initialisation examples above, I left darkMode and language at false. If you want to enable them, just set them to true.

    ninext.start({
         badges: true,
         viewEvent: true,
         buttonEvent : true,
         fieldsInspector: true,
         nativeJS: true,
         tableView: true,
         debugTracer : true,
         languages : true,
         errorsViewer : true,
         darkMode : true,
    
         autoCloseDialog:  false })

    Good morning everybody,

    I have a browser error message when using Ninext, if I would like to open a tab of a table view, where no entries are available:

    TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (Reading "forEach")

    Does anyone else have it?

    Best, Ralf

    Thank you for the information. Could you send a screenshot of your table, please?
    I will try to recreate the problem.
    I think it depends on the type of field displayed in the table view.
