"normal" HTML attributes
05.11.2020 19:22

Hi, so HTML attributes are great, but only untill you try to do something with them - like hide for example... or export - import
Seems like you keep them all in a single SQL field:-(
So, some JS manipulation is needed, rule editor is useless.

Can you make normal HTML attributes - every attribute in separate SQL field?

Hi,

I don't think this will happen. There are about 160 attributes:
https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_attributes.asp

Creating these many columns in numerous tables or creating an other table which maps these attribute values to the object would incur a (unnecessary) performance impact.

Could you provide a little bit more context what you try to achieve?

Kind regards,
Daniel

Thanks for the picture, without it I still wouldn't have guessed what you are talking about. The englisch translation of this object is 'field'. You can probably understand my confusion now. I tried to figure out what attributes/properties you are referring. There are some which result in setting html attribute on the form so I was really lost here. :)

Even so I know now that you are referring too the new HTML field type. I still don't get most of what improvements you wish for. Of course, I'm not representing someone from Webcon, but I believe that you have a higher chance of success if you can describe what change you want in detail.

As far as I can understand there are four changes you wish for:
1. Manipulation of the HTML field with the existing functions without writing java script yourself
I didn't try it, if i could hide/show the html field depending on some actions. Do you have some other actions in mind?
2. Export/Import
I have no idea what you want.
3. Single SQL Field for all (fields)?
It's the same as for the other fields. Each field is represented by a single row in [WFConfigurations] and the configuration of the field in the column [WFCON_Config]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
<configuration xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<html>
<namePlacement>None</namePlacement>
<html>#{EGV:16}#</html>
<showdifferenthtmlinreadonly>false</showdifferenthtmlinreadonly>
<htmlreadonly />
</html>
</configuration>
4. Improvements to rule editor
Here you have already created a user voice. So this would be a duplicate.


At least this is what I have guessed from you initial post, if I wrong correct me and be more elaborate about it. So that everyone here understands you. This could result in more thumbs up. ;)
