DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for July 2012

Saving a Textual Description of a Form

You can quickly and easily create a text file that contains a comprehensive descrition of your form - including form features, table column names and datatypes, control dimensions, macros, variables, and more. This description can be an invaluable record and development tool. For example, it can help you keep track of how and where variables are used.

To create a textual description of a DroidDB form:

  1. With the form open in the development environment, select File-Save As.
  2. Enter the name of the form if need be...but don't press OK
  3. Press down and hold the SHIFT key.
  4. While the SHIFT key is still pressed down, click on OK.

DroidDB saves the description of the form in a text file in the application folder (for example, E:\MyApplication\MyApplication.txt). You can open it with Notepad or some other text editor.

Top rated! I needed a solid database application development tool for mobile devices. I chose DroidDB for Android OS because it provided a way to get a strong product to market quickly. DroidDB is relational, gives me control over form layout, handles macros, and supports events. It works on all Android versions I have tried and is a great companion product to SYWARE’s VisualCE.
