Project Explorer, Project Actions, Wizards, Action Column Scope

This release of Code On Time introduces new productivity tools. Project Explorer is designed to simplify the development process. The future releases will include further enhancements to the Project Explorer including full drag and drop support.

Some of the promised functionality is not included in the current release due to compatibility issues. We are working on a follow-up that will go out later this week.

Make sure to refresh the cache of your browser to load the latest version of the client library after you re-generate you web application.

Features and enhancements included in release 6.0.0.15:

  • Project Explorer and new Project Actions menu.
     
  • New action Status allows implementation of sophisticated Wizards.
     
  • Use Shift+F10 to open a context menu on the focused node in the Project Explorer.
     
  • Use F4 to toggle focus between the Project Designer and Project Explorer.
     
  • Significant improvements to the memory management. Integrated web browser has been leaking memory in previous released. The current version takes care of releasing the memory.
       
  • Mr. Zsolt Panka has contributed localization for hu-HU. Thank you!
     
    If you are creating Code On Time applications in languages other than English then please contribute your localizations. Read about localizing application here.
