DataEase 8.1 - New version quick update (Ver. 8.1.0.1517)

We are really sorry that our team haven't had time to test and release these versions as they have been developed. This is due to a lot of other activities that our team has to participate on and hence the process around releasing new versions has been put on hold.

Another reason for the delay is that even our most avid users has not yet been able to catch up with the release of new functions, and neither have our documentation team. 

A lot of the new functions found in this release will need proper explaining, samples and documentation to give benefit to our users and this WILL be our focus from April till after the summer where we will start pushing DE8 properly in the market.

As you can see from below there is quite a lot of new stuff since the last release.


SetStyle() - Which allow you to set a style on any object in a form is now fully implemented and will allow you to style all objects including Forms/Records/Tabs/Subforms etc.


GetLabelText() is the opposite of SetlabelText() and will allow you to read the content of a label (including the label of buttons).

GetValue() is the opposite of SetValue(). You can ask what is the purpose when you can simply access the field value (PRISM value) anywhere  directly. There is a lot of differences. This is a GUI function so you access the value in the control rather than the value in the Record, but the real value comes when you combine it with # feature GetValue("Field#5") will get the value of the field object called Field but the 5 of it on screen. So you can for instance use this to pick values out of a Subform etc. 

GetStyle() is the opposite of SetStyle() and will return the name of the style of the object. Quite useful you will see when you start changing styles with SetStyle()... Might be nice to be able to re-set the style etc, so knowing what it was before you changed it is quite useful.
