5 Ways iOS7 Can Help the Enterprise, Intermec CN51, Windows 8.1, Apple iPad Air and Mini


 5 Ways iOS7 Can Help the Enterprise

The launch of iOS7 generated a lot of commentary about its design changes. However, it also foresaw the shift in how enterprises are using and developing mobile apps, and includes several business-friendly features.

Intermec CN51, Rugged and Versatile, Runs Android or Windows 6.5

Intermec has developed the CN51. The handheld computer can run Android 4.1 or, for customers with legacy apps, Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5.

Microsoft Releases Windows 8.1

Microsoft Corp. on Thursday announced the global availability of Windows 8.1, a feature-rich update to its popular Windows 8 operating system, enabling customers to create experiences that keep pace with their lives — at work, at home or on the go. Beginning Oct. 17, consumers with a Windows 8 device in more than 230 markets and 37 languages can download the free update via the online Windows Store.

Apple iPad Air Event: Everything you need to know

Apple made several announcements at their Oct 22 productevent in San Francisco. From the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display to new releases for the Mac, Apple managed to compress a lot of information into a 90-minute event.  This article collates all the news from the event and puts it together in one easy-to-read guide.

PC sales are down, across the board and across the globe.

Recent figures show the decline that set in nearly two years ago continues, with no end in sight. This marks the sixth consecutive quarter of declining worldwide shipments.


Data Grids

Columns in listviews may set to be editable by the user. E.g. a Button data cell may be used to quickly jump to a record's details, while controls such as Drop Downs and Edit Controls may be used to quickly edit records with in the list itself while being vaildated for correctness.
This may be achieved by assigning column types under the 'Data Cell' heading when modifying the columns of a listview via the 'Columns' property dialog. Once editing of data has been completed, the listview's Save() method may be called in an expression to save the values entered. Alternatively, the data may be saved to the database immediately, using the 'Data Grid - Auto Save' property of the listview.

Server Configuration - User Activity

The "Log User Activity to the Runtime Statistics Database" option in the Configuration > Server node may be enabled to enable User Activity logging. This data contains useful information, such as user connection time, number of synchronised records, as well as BrightForms, project and release information. The rows of the table will be update each time the user synchronises their device. For more information, please refer to the BrightServer > BrightServer Instances > User Activity chapter of the Bright Software User Manual.


We have released the latest version of BrightForms 7.2.3 for iOS and it is now available at the App Store. BrightForms now fully supports the iOS7 look-and-feel and seamlessly integrates into the iOS7 platform.

Another exciting news item is that the development team has completed the Alpha phase of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 Store versions of BrightForms with a full Metro style user interface. It will now be in the beta stage for the rest of the year and is expected to go production Q1 early next year.
