Tutorials are now available directly in the Studio
Convertigo Studio now provides tutorials to familiarize yourself with the platform :
From creating a project to using No Code DataBase, these step by step tutorials will guide you through the Studio basics in order to let you use the platform freely afterwards.
This tutorials page will automatically appear the first time you start the Studio. Otherwise, you can easily open it by clicking on "Convertigo" in the top bar then clicking on "Open the Tutorial view".
Live visualization of your application on your mobile device
Convertigo 8.2 sets up a live visualization system of your application thanks to the new QR Code feature : All you have to do is open the Visual App Viewer of your project, and click the QR Code icon (the black one at the left of the App Viewer named Show QR Code). Then scan the QR Code from your mobile device and the app will open.
Be careful : Your computer and your smartphone has to be connected to the same wifi network to work.
New intelligent palette matching selected objects
In Convertigo 8.2, we wanted to make the tool more intuitive. We wanted to avoid wasting time looking for components in the palette manually.
That is why we have set up this "intelligent palette" that will automatically display affiliated content according to the selected object in the Treeview.
For example, if you click on your connector folder, the palette will only display objects available for this connector.
New project creation menu name for fullstack applications
Convertigo Studio has always provided the creation of Mobile AND Desktop applications, but it hasn't been clear for the users.
In Convertigo 8.2, when you create a new project, the naming has been changed to "Convertigo Low Code Fullstack Web/Desktop or Mobile app project" to clearly explain the possibility of creating both.
To access it, click the "New" icon under the "File" button in the top bar.
New synchronization of an object name and its property
Originally, when you added a component in your project and you named it, it didn't synchronize with the property naming, which could be confusing sometimes. This occurs for example for 'Object' of 'Field' components.
From now on, the property name will automatically be the same as the naming of your component. For example, renaming a 'Field' component will automatically rename its 'Key' property'
New picker allowing to choose the navParams of the page
When loading a new page, you can send variables to it.
Originally, to retrieve the passed variables, you had to write code manually.
Now, you can directly find your variables in the picker in navParams.data.
Automatic production build when you deploy your project
In previous versions of Convertigo Studio, to deploy your project on your server, you had to think about clicking the production build button before deployment.
Convertigo 8.2 automatically builds your application when you deploy it in order to save some time and to make sure you do not deploy an 'Unbuilt' project.
Add an event entry in Picker for Action sources
Formerly, to retrieve data events, you had to write your own code in components.
As of now, all page data events are in the Action Sources of the Source Picker
