Support / (MINOR!) Wording: "Prime Key" should be "Primary Key"
« on: December 18, 2020, 10:02:22 am »
The table config shows index info "Prime Key" instead of "Primary Key".


We're working with customers who use smartphones with scanners and desktop PCs. The brixxbox is not set to single page mode but loses this setting periodicaly - without browser settings deleted beforehand. On the desktop PCs this is no bigger problem, as we informed all users on how to work around this bug and deactivate the single page mode again. The employees in the warehouse have been specifically trained on a minimal, ideal process flow and user interface and are not technically proficient and everything that gets in the way, keeps them from doing their work.

The deactivation of the single page mode is absolutely necessary for the brixxbox to work correctly, expecially for the workflow on the smartphones.

Please take care that this bug is removed and does not happen time and again.


Support / Saving a record resets readOnlyMode
« on: December 14, 2020, 12:25:55 pm »
Hi guys,

We use the readOnlyMode to enable users with fewer permissions to update only certain parts of records.

Therefore, we add an update permission (save button) for the role in question and add a call like this to the onAppInitialized event:

Code: [Select]
    //alle Rechte     
}else if(app.isUserInRole("Sales")){
    //darf nur x, y, z editieren
    app.readOnlyMode(true, {exclude: [
    app.setToolbarButtonMode("brixxToolbarSaveRecord", "enabled");
    //keine Rechte

After the user edited the data and uses the safe button this resets the readOnlyMode for all fields and the user can edit everything.

Could you please fix this issue?


Hi Volker,

this haunts me xD

I try using as much keyboard as possible and keyboard + mouse if not fully possible as this is the fastest way of getting data into these machines as long the BrainInterface(TM) is not ready yet. (The Big Willi is working on it, I'll keep you informed.)

I am just beginning to notice how many occasions I press Escape to quickly close something or take a step back. Among other things I tried this when I accidentally opened a context menu in the browser and also in a file dialog when attaching files. In both cases, however, the application I came from closes, too. Please correct this.

Thanks alot,

Support / Show other users on same config
« on: November 17, 2020, 12:30:53 pm »
Hi Volker,

We're currently working in teams of two on our projects and it happens from time to time that one of us edits a config another developer (consultant) is currently working on. Let's say I (1) just want to change the caption of a button and the other developer (2) is working on a complex topic which needs time and keeps the conifg open for a longer period. When 2 is trying to save he can't and needs to "merge" his changes into mine or vice versa. As we do not have the advanced tools software developers are using today (SVN/CVS/GIT, FileCompare/BeyondCompare, etc.) this is a manual task and can be very time absobing.

As long we don't have integrated tools for comparing and merging the different versions of configs, is there any way of giving the config editor a similar functionality as "show users on the same record"? This way 1 would never have been able to edit the config unless 2 first saves his changes and hands over control to 1.

Support / Empty numeric field and value 0 saved identical
« on: November 09, 2020, 07:06:34 pm »
Hi Volker,

in our addresses we've got a creditLimit field for the customers. Customers can have no credit limit, a credit limit of 0 and a credit limit larger than 0. In the customer order we're trying to distinguish whether the customer has no credit limit (NULL) and the customer has a credit limit of 0. But both values seem to be saved as 0 in the database.

The database field is of type decimal(18,6) and set to "can be null=YES".

Before implementing a workaround using an additional check box with additional data field, I wanna make sure that there's no better way of doing this.


Support / Closing combo boxes using ESC closes current app, too
« on: October 29, 2020, 09:24:59 am »

in Windows and most web environments I know, you can close a combo box by hitting ESC. When doing this in the brixxbox the combo box closes but in the next moment the current app closes, too, or displays the "Discard changes" message when the record has already been changed.

Support / Access to combo in config of config based combo
« on: October 26, 2020, 03:08:10 pm »
If I have a combo based on a config, I can access fields in the config of the selected entry via app.getFieldValue("comboName.fieldFromTargetConfig"). But if the target config contains anther config based combo and I want to access a value from this one... is there some easy way?

Support / App permissions and grids based on configs with those
« on: October 23, 2020, 12:30:22 pm »
Hey folks!

We have a config "address" which has permission "read" for all users and "all access" for a specific role.

This config is basis for a grid showing all addresses.

When the user has the read only permission, he can still use the "add" and the "delete" button.

Delete really deletes the record, although the user has not the right to delete.
Update: Delete button can be clicked, confirmation dialog opens and when clicking "Delete" a system error is shown inside the dialog. Record cannot be deleted.

Add opens the app with empty fields which can be filled and only at the end the user will find that there's no save button available and using CTRL+S brings up a "permission denied" message.

I helped myself by manually checking the user role in the onAppInitialized event of the grid app.

What do you think of this: When the grid is based on a config, why not use the config permissions on the grid controls for disabling add and delete button?


Support / Changing app permissions doesn't trigger "data modified"

Support / Language selection missing on smartphones
« on: October 16, 2020, 05:50:30 pm »

on smartphones there is no way of switching the language as the language selection is not displayed neither in portrait or landscape format.

Support / Configuration navigation
« on: October 16, 2020, 02:52:58 pm »

I'd like to suggest to implement a simple way to switch back from a detail record to the list view one came from (for example: configuration > security > users).

After opeing one of the users to add some roles, one can only go back by hitting the back button of the browser which leads to a list which has to be manually refreshed otherwise showing only the status before the editing or you have to use the menu which position was resetted in the moment you opened the user record. In my view using the menu to just go back to the list view is "strange" and using the back-button in the browser is something I try to avoid because in the routine of using it you ca easily lose the information you just entered.


Support / Issue with sending emails using own SMTP server
« on: October 15, 2020, 11:41:29 am »

We'd like to use the SMTP server of our customer for sending emails. This means that the customer is also obliged to take care that his provider is not listed on any blacklist and therefore his end customers do not receive their confirmation emails.

We configured the followeing settings:
SmtpServerPassword   *******
SmtpServerPort   587
SmtpServerUser   *******

We receive the following error which shows that the encryption wasn't started correctly. We'd suggest not to use STARTTLS but SSL/TLS because connection establishment using STARTTLS is not encrypted and it's recommended to use SSL/TLS instead.

Sending email
Error in processing. The server response was: 5.7.3 STARTTLS is required to send mail []

I've set up a testMail app in a sandbox workspace for quick and easy testing without using the productive environment of the customer.

Thanks for fixing this issue shortly.
