Plex-XML November 2009 Release
  • The latest updated record can now be highlighted in each grid panel. This provides a good visual orientation to the user, which record was last updated. The technical information is stored in the browser-cache of each individual user and will be deleted when the user has closed the browser. But it will survive switching form one grid to another. So if you come back to a grid the last selected record will be marked again.
  • Foreign language translations by database have been completed. Among other you can now translate mouse over hints and button-text elements by database lookups that will be cached by the Plex-XML runtime.
  • To reduce network requests Plex-XML uses now sprites for the most common images.
  • To reduce network requests the number of CSS-Files has been reduced.
  • The Format Drag&Drop window for detail screens has been redesigned.


  • 2009/10/03
Plex-XML October 2009 Release
  • We have completely reworked the login procedure. Now it is now much more flexible than before.
    • From now on we can handle anonymous users
    • External links can be used to call single application panel with preselected data. As an example we can now send out an e-mail with a link to one ticket in our helpdesk application. Any user can call this ticket using that link.
    • Beside the user id you can now use the e-mail address from your user profile to log in to an application that was developed with Plex-XML.
  • As an option the initial application translation can now be done automatically by using Google translate service.
  • Messages have been moved from the bottom to the top of each screen to improve the user experience. In some cases, users were confused when the window was not at full size and the message was shown in the hidden part of the window.

  • 2008/07/11

  • 2008/05/22
The running demo of the tutorial has been updated to the current version of Plex-XML see:

  • 2008/04/08
Secured fields is our new and very flexible web application security feature. Secured fields are web form fields that are protected against Web Parameter Tampering using a hash code.

  • 2008/02/26
Single record panel design: Fields that should be placed in the same row like another field but not in a separate column can now have a label. If you like to use this feature you need to set "Sequence in column" to a value >1 and "Column label" to yes.
The field "Column label" below is an example.

  • 2008/02/20
Grid design: Did you ever thought it might be nice to have a grid design which shows two data field within one grid column and placed one below the other? Instead of setting each field side by side and getting a very wide design maybe with a horizontal scroll bar? The brand new field setting 'Sequence in Column' will deliver this feature.

  • 2008/02/11

  • 2007/10/08

Example: <request-pattern>de.bodow.handler.{0}Handler</request-pattern>

    • Suggest-Box or AutoComplete: The first version of the AJAX-Suggest box is ready to use. It works like a combo box but pulls the data via AJAX from the database while you are typing. It is a great solution for referenced entities that contain too many records (~>75) for a normal combo box.

  • 2007/08/22
    • PlexXML_ALL/XML Dictionary_FindBrowse: The format of date fields in SQL search values has been changed to {d '2007-08-22'}. This format could be used in DB2, MySQL and MSSQL-Server. Regeneration of FB is necessary.

  • 2007/08/06
    • Security: Within the insert function the standard attributes for Shop and Sector will no longer be overwritten with the DefaultParameter. Now they were overwritten only if they are blank. This is necessary if you would like to deliver the Shop value from outside the function.
