Styling a Table View: a step-by-step example

After we took care of the styling of the Detail View last time, today I will adapt the corresponding Table View. Initial situation Remove links First I would like to remove the links so that the values in the table are shown as text, not as a link. I could and should have done this already during modelling, but I did not. So I have to do it in AppGini – field by field. Then save and regenerate. Except the file link (download) there are now only values in the table. If I want to open a record, I need …

Highlight: Styled buttons and additional buttons in children tab of detail view

Today I would like to present an idea that I can definitely use in my own projects: additional buttons in children tab tables. Yes, buttons for the tables at the bottom of detail views. Problem I don’t know about you, folks, but I personally don’t really like the button to open a child record in a modal window especially for UI and UX reasons. The button is differently styled than other buttons and is not configurable. Furthermore, there are always situations in which I would like to open the record NOT in modal dialog, but in the same window. I …

BUG: dv.getActionButtons() with AppGini v5.9x

This bug affects appgini version 5.90 and 5.91. When creating additional buttons in Detail View (DV) using addGroup + addLink / addButton (seee docs here) there is a duplication of the new AppGini Previous / Next buttons: This happens as soon as you are calling dv.getActionButtons() or dv.ActionButtons. Reason AppGini places Previous/Next buttons in div.btn-toolbar. The function call dv.getActionButtons() creates another div.btn-toolbar as a container for additional custom buttons. This means if there is more then one div.btn-toolbar, those buttons will be appended more than once. Solution This bug shall be fixed in upcoming AppGini version 5.92 Workarounds Alternative (1):Code …

Highlight: WordPress integration

For an upcoming project we plan to integrate data from an AppGini application into a WordPress page. I am currently creating a prototype to determine the feasibility. Components On the one hand, we need a configurable WordPress plugin that retrieves the data. On the other hand we need a counterpart on AppGini side, which provides the data. WordPress output This is what the first results look like. Please note that I have not made the result list prettier yet. More CSS styling is still required here. It is just the first draft: This is a WordPress installation on localhost. The …
