DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for March 2016

Documenting Your Form

If you want, you can easily generate a textual description of your form. This description includes the properties of the form, properties of all the controls, the steps in all the macros, and the usage of the variables. Once you do this, you can look at this description in a text editor such as notepad.

To create this description:

  1. Open up the DroidDB form designer and open up your form.
  2. Select FILE | SAVE AS. A dialog will be displayed with "Name" set to MyForm.
  3. Press down and hold the SHIFT key.
  4. While the SHIFT key is still down, click on OK

A file called MyForm.txt will be created in the application folder. Open the form in a text editor such as notepad to see the form's description.

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.
