Extra information: style tags in SVG icons

In release 2023.1.16, we have fixed some issues involving SVG images. To enable these fixes, two changes for SVG icons were necessary. These changes have been applied to model icons and icons uploaded by users with an upload control.Style tags were stripped from uploaded SVGs. These tags allowed insertion of random CSS on the web page. If you still need CSS styles, most SVG editors default export SVGs with a style="" attribute instead of a style tag. Attributes are still supported. Larger SVGs were resized to fit Image elements.The icons are probably cached by your browser, so the changes will only be visible after you have cleared the cache or added new icons.We recommend that you validate in the Software Factory- and end product database if you are using icons with style tags in your project. For example, with a query like this one, that searches for the `<style>` tag:select distinct *    ,cast(icon_data as VARCHAR(max)) from icon where right(icon, 4) = '.svg' and cast(icon_data as VARCHAR(max)) like '%<style>%' --and branch_id = 'MAIN'The resulting icons may not show up as expected after clearing the browser’s cache. To fix this, replace the <style> tag with inline styles in the SVG files:Open the SVG file in a text editor. Search for the <style> block and convert in into inline styles.In the example below, the style from the `<style>` tag is applied to all elements in de SVG file containing the a style class. You can read more about different CSS selectors here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/CSS_Selectors SVG icon with inline styleWe hope this gives you enough information to work around this problem.

Hello everyone,In this sprint, we have fixed a couple of issues.You can read more about Indicium's features in the Indicium user manual.We will keep you updated regularly about Indicium's progress. About IndiciumTwo types of the Thinkwise Indicium Application Tier are available: Indicium: for use with the Universal GUI and via APIs. This version uses the full range of Indicium functionality.Download Indicium release 2023.1.16 here. Indicium Basic: for use with the Windows GUI and Mobile GUI. This basic version does not support, for example, system flows and OpenID. No 2023.1.16 release available.  Indicium - Changes Minor fixes and tasks Previously, if an email address in an EML file was corrupt or contained an unexpected value, Indicium would not show an email preview. Indicium will now skip the corrupt or unexpected value and display the email preview regardless. Previously, when clearing the default value of a column during an add record action, the column would still be given the default value after saving the record. Indicium now correctly saves the resource with a null value for that column, if it has been cleared. Previously, if a Delete Row process action could not be executed, for example, if the row does not exist or if there are no rows to delete, a continue call was not possible. The reason for this is that the process actions would automatically continue when the edit or delete action was being executed on Indicium. Now, you can continue such a process action, but only with negative status codes, so that if something goes wrong, the process flow can continue with the fail path. In our last release notes, we listed the following fix:Indicium adds Server-Timing headers to the response to provide extra information on how long certain things take during the request. When importing, this could lead to a gateway error, depending on where Indicium is hosted and how many rows were imported due to a limit on response header data.To avoid this, if more than 20 Server-Timing values have been added, Indicium will now aggregate the entire duration for each Server-Timing category/key instead of adding separate entries per imported row. Due to an oversight, this fix was not included in the last release, but it has been included in this release.  Questions or suggestions?Questions or suggestions about the release notes? Let us know in the Thinkwise Community!.

The grid no longer has an empty Add row if the subject only allows adding and not editing. Hello everyone,In this sprint, we implemented a lot of new features, changes, community ideas, and fixes.Some of the main new features are the possibility to retrieve a user's current GPS location, and the availability of a lot of new cube chart configuration properties.The performance of relational data retrieval in lookups has also been greatly improved.As always, we have made a demo for you: try it here.

The input field will get a location pin. When a user clicks on this pin, the GUI will ask permission to add the location coordinates.The format of the coordinates is: latitude,longitudeExample: 52.2083228,5.9794353When a user adds a new row, the LOCATION control will automatically fill the current location for empty mandatory input fields.In a mandatory field, the location is filled automaticallyIf the field is not in edit mode, it will become a clickable link that opens the coordinates in Google Maps.A clickable location link in a non-editable field Performance improvement for relational data valueschangedPreviously, lookup values were loaded right after the subject's data. This resulted in a delay before the values would show in grids and card lists. Every lookup column made its own Expand API request to Indicium, even if the lookup column was not visible. These requests used a lot of resources.We have changed this by expanding the lookup values directly on the subject's main data request.Extra requests are no longer necessary. This change has resulted in a much faster experience.All values now show up at once. And, by executing the main select only once, a lot of overhead is saved in the individual calls on the web- and database server, especially when the main subject contains a view with some logic.So, for every relational (lookup) column in the subject or variant, it saves a request to the backend. The best way to experience the performance improvement is to check it out yourself.Make sure that each lookup subject performs fast on its own because a single slow lookup will delay loading all the data from the main subject. Set cube chart defaultsnewFor a cube chart, you can now add all the configuration properties from https://www.fusioncharts.com/dev/chart-attributes to the Universal GUI's config.json fileunder the property chartDefaults.The properties will not override the properties that come from the model:caption, decimalSeparator, thousandSeparator, stack100Percent, showValues,showPercentage, showLegend, legendPosition, and reverseLegend.It is possible to override the paletteColors property, but if that contains only one item, this color will remain the theme's main color.Example: to prevent cube charts from rounding values, use the property "chartDefaults": { "formatNumber": "0" }.CautionThe settings are applied to all charts of the GUI to which this config.json file belongs. There are many properties, and we did not test all of them.We are investigating formalization of these settings in the Software Factory.Example of the settings and the result in a chart Refresh on revisiting a page or tabnew Community ideaTo provide a user with fresh data when they revisit an open document or reselect a detail tab, we have implemented support for two extended properties:RefreshOnDocumentSwitch - refreshes an already opened document on re-entrance RefreshOnTabSwitch - refreshes an already visited detail tab on reactivationBe careful when using these settings since they increase the server load in a multi-user environment. Consider using a process flow or auto-refresh with change detection instead.See:Auto-refresh Change detection Behavior of local login for authentication provider hintchangedIn the 2023.1.13 release, we added the loginAuthProviderHint option to provide a hint about the authentication provider to Indicium.In this release, we have changed the behavior when the hint locallogin is used. The Universal GUI will now show the login screen without redirecting to Indicium. Display options for table tasks and table reportsnew Community ideaIn the Software Factory, a new setting is available for Table tasks and Table reports. It is called Display type.With this setting, you can control their appearance in the toolbar. For example, if you select Icon, the toolbar button will never expand to show the text. You can differentiate this setting for each button.The setting is available:For Table tasks: menu Processes > Tasks > tab Table tasks > tab Form For Table reports: menu Processes > Reports > tab Table reports > tab FormExample: display options for a table report Changed and new in form and gridchanged newColumns unlocked when space is insufficient - In a screen with insufficient horizontal space, the grid will now one by one unlock the locked columns. If the screen layout or size is changed to provide more space, the columns will be locked again. 'Add' for grouped grids disabled - We have disabled Add for grouped grids since it is not possible to fill in all the required values. This will be re-enabled later. Tooltip on image combo in grid - A tooltip that displays the domain element name of an image combo is now available in the grid. You can set the domain element name in the menu Data > Domains > tab Elements > field Element. 'No. of columns in form' interpreted differently - If the setting No. of columns in form is set to '0', the Universal GUI will now interpret this as "as many columns as possible" instead of just three (menu User interface > Subjects > tab Settings > tab General > group Form). Support for password editing in a grid - We now support editing a password column in the grid (based on a Password domain control). This was already possible in the form. Previously, the password column remained read-only. Responsive pagination - We have made the pagination element responsive. This change solves some issues with pagination showing incorrect pages and wrong links. Pagination will now only show a certain number of links, with a minimum of 3-4, depending on the available space. This change prevents pagination links from moving to the next line in almost all situations, and it shows more links when more space is available. It also fixes the overflow of pagination to a second row on a device with a small screen in comfortable mode. New in Model insightnewModel Insight now shows the reference id when clicking on a detail tab page header.Model Insight is a tool that helps you find, for example, which column, table, and variant you have selected in the Universal GUI. See: Model insight. Support for HTML in preview componentWe have added support for previewing HTML data in the preview component. Previously, we supported file and URL types. Changed and new in process flowschanged new'Change filters' process action no longer clears search field - The Change filters process action no longer clears the search field. Now, it functions the same as in the Windows GUI. Process flow indicator - An indeterminate progress bar will now appear underneath the top bar once a process flow has been activated within the current active subject.Progress bar for a progress flow Translation in Scheduler based on IAMchangedThe Scheduler would translate information on a page based on the installation settings of a browser, which would be undesirable in some cases. This translation is now based on the IAM language settings of a user. 'Clear' button only on hoverchangedOn non-touch devices, the lookup Clear button will be shown only on hover to give more space to the content. Improved messageschangedIf the Start empty with filter setting in a Subject was enabled, but the user did not filter, the Universal GUI would display "No result" as a message in the grid and card list. This did not explain the problem to the user. Now, the message "Search or filter to view data" will be displayed instead. Community idea A user now receives a comprehensible message if the meta source cannot be reached while logging in. Minor fixes and tasksFixes in grids and formsIn a grid, adding was only possible if editing was allowed. Without editing permission, the add button would not show up. Now, it is possible to add data without permission for editing. This fix also solves the reverse problem, that in some cases, the add button was visible without functioning. The permissions for adding and editing are set in the menu User interface > Subjects > tab Settings > tab Permissions > group Data manipulation. After selecting a lookup value in a lookup popup, the GUI would not restore the focus to the lookup field. The same occurred when canceling the popup. This has been fixed. The lookup field now receives focus after the popup is closed. Tab text combined with a badge is now properly aligned in compact mode. On a small screen or with a long label, the label of a datetime control could overlap with the date picker icon. This has been fixed. The label now takes up less width. When you opened a form with a double click, sometimes all the text in the application was selected. This has been fixed. Identity columns are now prevented from being marked as mandatory when adding a new record. The grouped grid will no longer cut off headers when they reach a new column.Fixes for tasks and reportsWhen you cleared the Layout checkbox in the Performance tab of a task or report, the Universal GUI ignored this and still asked for the layout via Indicium and thus the network. This has been fixed. As a result, the Universal GUI now uses the Software Factory's Mandatory and Column type settings for report and task parameters. You can find the Layout checkbox in the menu Processes > Tasks/Reports > tab Settings > tab Performance. The settings Mandatory and Column type (editable, read-only, hidden) are available in the menu Processes > Tasks/Reports > tab Task parameters > tab Form. The taskbar will no longer be in overflow if left-aligned.Fixes for process flowsWe have improved the way a process flow continues in a just-loaded detail subject. Some issues occurred when dispatching follow-up actions, for example, with the Go to row process action. The problem was caused by follow-up actions that sometimes selected the parent to continue in. The Universal GUI would show an error when starting a process flow and quickly closing the screen. This problem was due to a timing issue. It has been fixed.Fixes for user interfaceWe have fixed a bug where the toolbar would not be hidden even though the screen type had Hide main action bar set to 'true'. A hierarchical tree would crash without a parent or primary key column. Now, it will show a clear error instead. The Allow sort configuration option in a Subject had not been implemented correctly. This has been fixed.MiscellaneousSchedulers with an hourly time scale now correctly start the day at 0 hours instead of 24 hours. When using a progress bar within a card list, the progress bar would not be rendered properly. This has been fixed. In the Maps component, when you selected the Use custom label column checkbox (menu User interface > Maps > tab Tables > tab Maps) but kept the field Label column empty, the Universal GUI would show the subjects' Display column value. Now, it will show no label text at all underneath the marker. What we will be working on next sprintThe next sprint we will be working on:Drag and drop - Research of technical issues and possibilities. Material UI upgrade - Universal GUI uses the third-party library Material UI for certain graphical components. This library has its own releases. We will upgrade the Universal GUI to a recent Material UI version. Tree component expand/collapse all - We will add the option to expand and collapse all items in a tree in one go. Pop out document to new browser tab - This will replace the floating document functionality of the Windows GUI and open a new browser window with the related document. Questions or suggestions?Questions or suggestions about the release notes? Let us know in the Thinkwise Community!.

Hello everyone,In this sprint, we have fixed some issues for the Windows GUI.You can read more about the Windows and Web GUI's features, in the GUI user manual. We will keep you updated regularly about the Windows and Web GUI's progress.Download Windows GUI 2023.1.15 here. Download Web GUI 2023.1.15 here. Minor fixes and tasksWindows GUI We have fixed that auto-refresh on a grid would not start after executing a task. The problem occurred when multiple rows were selected in the grid, and the auto-refresh was paused. If a user then executed a task, the grid would be refreshed and the selection removed, but the auto-refresh would not be restarted in the grid. We have fixed some problems with keyboard navigation in the Windows grid. The following key combinations will now work again as expected: [Tab] (or [Shift-tab]) + the horizontal arrow keys will jump to the previous or next cell. When already in the last cell, the focus will jump to the first cell in the next row. The reverse is the case for the first cell and backward navigation ([Shift-Tab] + [left arrow key]). [Enter] will jump to the next editable cell. When already at the last editable cell in a row, the focus will jump to the first editable cell in the next row. The reverse is the case for the first editable cell and backward navigation ([Shift] + [Enter]). We have also fixed a problem in navigating a grouped grid.  Questions or suggestions?Questions or suggestions about the release notes? Let us know in the Thinkwise Community!

When importing a row, Indicium only checked if allow_confirm was allowed on the result of the subject's layout procedure. Now, if the import resource has been created with add_new_rows or update_existing_rows set to true, Indicium will also fail the import of a row if allow_add/allow_update is not allowed according to the layout result. Questions or suggestions?Questions or suggestions about the release notes? Let us know in the Thinkwise Community!.

ūüöÄ Platform improvements for week 13

Hi everyone!We’ve released the following platform improvements this week: SF and IAM 2023.120230330 - IgnoreFloatingLabelWidth support A new extended property is now available. It is called 'IgnoreFloatingLabelWidth' and ignores configured label widths in the model for form columns, task- and report parameters when the form control type in the Universal GUI uses a 'floating label'. Enabling this extended property will match the Universal GUI's form configuration more closely to the Windows GUI's.   For example: given the following form configuration in the Software Factory: The Windows GUI and Web GUI will visualize the form as follows: The orange color indicates the full-form element widths, including the label. The green color indicates only the input field widths.   The current behavior of the Universal GUI interprets this as follows: When you add the extended property 'IgnoreFloatingLabelWidth' and set it to 'yes', the label width will no longer be considered in the field width calculations when the control uses a floating label: This matches the Windows GUI's form layout more closely for input fields and allows for a smooth transition between GUI technologies.   Note: this may result in large labels getting too little space as floating labels in small input fields.   In the upcoming 2023.2 release, this will become the default behavior for any model that does not yet support the Universal GUI as a target platform. Any model with the Universal GUI as a target platform will remain unmodified unless the extended property 'IgnoreFloatingLabelWidth' has been set to 'yes'. The reason for not changing the default behavior for models supporting the Universal GUI as the target platform is that you may very well have taken the label width impact into consideration when designing the form layout for Universal GUI applications.   This service fix also enables this setting for the Intelligent Application Manager. In addition, this service fix also enables support for variant-specific parameter ordering for tasks and reports.

ūüöÄ Platform improvements for week 12

Hi everyone!We‚Äôve released the following platform improvements this week:IAM 2022.1 and up20230324 - Changing default status for model defined prefilters When editing prefilters from the Windows GUI or Web GUI, it is possible to deviate from the model settings by indicating whether a prefilter should be active by default. However, this setting was not saved in the IAM user preferences. As a result, the change was lost after restarting the GUI. We have corrected this so that the changes are saved again in IAM. IAM 2023.120230320 - API change for update data migration source ‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčWe have released a platform improvement to address the¬†job_id¬†parameter of the¬†add_job_to_update_data_migration_source_version¬†task. After running the improvement, the API call can look as follows: Option 0 - Obtain from database: POST [indicium]/iam/sf/add_job_to_update_data_migration_source_version{¬† "model_id": "[MODEL]",¬† "branch_id": "[BRANCH]",¬† "select_data_migration_source_version_option": 0,¬† "runtime_configuration_id": "default"} Option 1 -¬†Specific model version: POST [indicium]/iam/sf/add_job_to_update_data_migration_source_version{¬† "model_id": "[MODEL]",¬† "branch_id": "[BRANCH]",¬† "select_data_migration_source_version_option": 1,¬† "from_branch_id": "[BRANCH]",¬† "from_model_vrs_id": "2023-03-18T12:00:20.859Z"} ¬†

Release notes Universal GUI 2023.1.14

March 24, 2023Full release 2023.1.14 Fixes: Since the last beta release, the clear and dropdown buttons of the lookup control were misplaced when the grid column got too narrow, causing the text to be out of view. Now, they disappear (again) when the grid column gets too narrow. We fixed regression on Safari and Chrome on iOS. Some screens would show an error due to toolbar positioning when the subject is opened. Because of this fix, the following fix is no longer available for iOS devices,: Previously, switching between documents would briefly show the form with only one column, despite there being room for multiple columns. Also, the action bar would become visible with a slight delay. These issues have been fixed. Update: we reverted this fix completely for all cases as part of the 2023.1.14.1 hotfix release.  Hello everyone,In this sprint, we have added support for changing the row height in a grid, tooltip translations on multiple components, persistent navigation URLs for history browsing, performance improvements, and more.A full overview of all features, changes, and fixes can be found below.As always, we have made a demo for you: try it here. Before trying it out, press 'Clear Cache' on the login screen. You can read the GUI manual to get familiar with the Universal GUI.We will keep you updated regularly about Universal GUI's progress. Universal GUI version 2023.1.14Do not forget the documentation and be sure to keep the following in mind:A modern browser is required to access the Universal GUI, e.g., a recent version of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari mobile. Using the Universal GUI with IE is not supported. The Universal GUI must be deployed on the same server as Indicium or an allowed origin in appsettings.json. The Universal GUI only works with version 2021.2 and up of the Thinkwise Platform. Make sure you run all hotfixes on IAM and the Software Factory that you plan to use for the Universal GUI. Make sure you are using the latest version of Indicium.Download the Universal GUI version 2023.1.14 here ContentsUniversal GUI version 2023.1.14 New Tooltip translations on prefilter buttons, task and report tiles, and task and report buttons Tooltip support on form editors New process action: Copy to clipboard Process flow progress indicator Configurable row height in grid Navigation URL now uses application alias when present Changed Performance improvement grid Performance improvement lookups Minor fixes and tasks What we will be working on next sprint Questions or suggestions? New Tooltip translations on prefilter buttons, task and report tiles, and task and report buttonsThe Universal GUI now displays the configured tooltip translation on prefilter buttons, task and report tiles, and task and report buttons.If a task has a keyboard shortcut, it will be displayed next to the configured tooltip translation.Tooltip on a prefilter buttonTooltip on a task buttonYou can configure the translation in the menu User interface > Translations or in the object, task, or report. HTML formatting is allowed in tooltips. For example, to make part of a text stand out or add a bullet list.The example below shows the translation for a prefilter: Tooltip support on form editorsThe Universal GUI now displays the configured tooltip translation on editors of the general form and task/report parameter input. You can configure the translation in the menu User interface > Translations or in the subjects column of the task/report parameter. HTML formatting is allowed in tooltips, for example, to make part of a text stand out or add a bullet list.The customized tooltip overrules a potential tooltip on an overflowing label or value within the editor, to prevent multiple tooltips from being displayed.Tooltips are supported now on all editors, except for:HTML Checkbox Radio button LabelTooltip on a text editor New process action: Copy to clipboardThe Universal GUI now supports the new process action Copy to clipboard. This action allows you to take a value and copy it to the user's clipboard.The value can be a single-column value, multiple-column values combined, or something else.Depending on the browser or device, a user may get a question for permission to copy information to the clipboard.This process action is only available through a hotfix on the Software Factory/IAM version 2023.1. Process flow progress indicatorAn indeterminate progress bar will now appear as a thin line underneath the top bar once a process flow has been activated.A progress bar for a progress flow Configurable row height in gridIt is now possible to define the row height of the grid, just like in the Windows GUI. This means that the Universal GUI will take the setting Row height (px) into account.You can set the row height in the following locations:menu User interface > Subjects > tab Subjects > tab Default settings > tab Default settings > group Grid menu User interface > Subjects > tab Subjects > tab Default > tab Settings > group GridFor compact mode, the exact value provided will be used. For comfortable mode, padding is added to this setting. If comfortable mode is active, the row height value will always be at least the minimum touch target of 44px.Limitations for this iteration:When in edit mode, the controls do not scale. When the grid is editable, the row height value will be at least 36px.The grid header height follows the grid row height but adds a bit of spacing to emphasize the separation between the rows and the headers. Both the grid header and summary row have a maximum height cap, and the summary row has a minimum height of 40px. Navigation URL now uses application alias when presentThe navigation URL that is used for history browsing now uses the application alias. This makes it persistent and suitable to be bookmarked and shared. Changed Performance improvement gridWe have done a performance optimization on the grid component. Actions like refreshing a grid, switching records, and editing in the grid should all benefit from this optimization. Rendering additional records in the grid due to scrolling should also be faster. Performance improvement lookupsWe have optimized the loading time of lookups when entering edit mode by removing unnecessary network requests. This improves the performance on slower connections. Minor fixes and tasks When opening multiple screens with auto-save enabled, sometimes the auto-save stopped working correctly. This has been fixed. If no records were available in the default-editable grid after applying a filter, selecting Cancel would result in an error. This has been fixed. Combo images are now aligned horizontally in compact mode. This fix removes some safety guards on SVGs in combo images. Note that poorly formatted SVGs seemed to work before this change, but now might give different results. Ensure that there is no height/width information in the SVG if you do not intend to influence those properties. The GUI will size the SVG correctly, but it will try to conform to what the developer indicates as much as possible while keeping the SVG within bounds. Previously, switching between documents would briefly show the form with only one column, despite there being room for multiple columns. Also, the action bar would become visible with a slight delay. These issues have been fixed. Note: we've reverted this fix as part of the 2023.1.14.1 hotfix release and will take a look at it later on. We fixed regression on Safari and Chrome on iOS. Some screens would show an error due to toolbar positioning when the subject is opened. The HTML control no longer overlaps other controls when placed side-by-side. HTML fields would not show up when placed behind another field. This has been fixed. The Universal GUI no longer shows an error after closing a lookup dialog. This would happen after double-clicking a record if the lookup dialog only contained a grid component. If the Universal GUI encountered a view in which duplicate primary keys were found, the grid would crash with a nondescript error. We have created a clear error message for this situation:Since the last beta release, the clear and dropdown buttons of the lookup control were misplaced when the grid column got too narrow, causing the text to be out of view. Now, they disappear (again) when the grid column gets too narrow. What we will be working on next sprintThe next sprint we will be working on:Catching up with quick wins and quality-of-life stories. Performance optimization for showing lookup translations in the grid. Questions or suggestions?Questions or suggestions about the release notes? Let us know in the Thinkwise Community!
