iOS scripts in DG2.5

Post by Batninja » Wed Dec 26, 2018 8:28 pm

Hiya

I’m not really clear what the iOS scripts do in dg2.5

I.e. iOS scroller script and native fields, plus the iOS storage script.

Can someone explain what these are used for, I can’t seem to see anything in the docs.

Thanks
Roger

Hi Roger,

The iOS scripts are old scripts existing in DGH 1.x I kept in 2.5, however some of them may less interesting with LC 9.x

1.The scroller is adding a native iOS scroller to the datagrid table or form. Datagrid 2 are natively adding mobile scrollers for datagrid forms. Android and iOS.

2. Storage scripts are adding facilities for saving the data of the datagrid outside of the mobile standalone in case you are not using a database for populating your datagrid. Android and iOS.

3. Native field is drawing a native iOS field for inputing data. This is allowing autocompletion, magnification, etc. iOS only.
