From looking at the 'What's New', I am looking to use:
-Container forms for Embedded apps (Dashboard Type App)
-jQuery Support for dialogs, etc.
-Div support for popups (calendar, hints, etc)
-Flash Graphs (the current graphs are bit dated) .. they will be using AnyChart in V5
-Collapse Blocks support for forms w/ many fields (and for use on searches with many fields)
-Button as Default
-And a few others they have listed.
They say there is many more, but not listed.
Hoping for: (have made requests to support)
-Check box support in the regular grid (how this has not been added puzzles me)
-Additional SQL types in the search (MySQL's FIND_IN_SET()) to help me eliminate cumbersome joins in my searches
-Allow for custom SQL statements in search
-Quick search in grid (so you do not have to load advanced search just to find a common value)
-Delete option (icon) built into the grid
My biggest complaint in V4 is the fact that they treat the grid as a report and not a usable grid. Example: In asking for checkbox support to select multiple records, they always refer me to the Forms/Edit Grid app. Why would I use a grid and search the selected records using the grids built-in search feature and then have to load those records into another edit grid just to handle several items.
If the Edit Grid looked like a normal grid, or had search features, then I would be fine. I consider the Edit Grid a quick solution for handling a few items such as settings or preferences, not large amounts of data.
I refer to phpMyadmin. Could You imagine using it without checkboxes to manage tables/fields?
Hopefully they will have these and a few more I have not thought of.
