New features and improvements in "Update 2" (version 280094)
New names of constants used by the emailSMTPSession type:
  • Until version 28 Update 3 (280085N), the Option property of a variable of type emailSMTPSession could take the following constants:
    • emailOptionDefault,
    • emailOptionSecuredTLS: unencrypted connection on port 587, then sends a StartTLS command to start encryption,
    • optionSSL: encrypted TLS connection.
The names of these constants could be confusing as to which protocol was actually being used.
To improve code readability, the constants have been renamed from version 28 "Update 4" (280094):
  • the emailOptionSecuredTLS constant becomes emailProtocolSMTPS,
  • the optionSSL constant becomes optionTLS,
  • The values of the constants remain unchanged,
  • the old constant names:
    • are no longer recognized by syntax highlighting,
    • no longer appear in the code completion suggestions,
    • can still be used without causing a compilation error or unexpected behavior at runtime.
New features and improvements in "Update 1" (version 280085)
  • New skin: Velvet.
  • In addition to the Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V shortcuts, copy and paste options are now available in the context menu of the controls.
Page editor
  • Improved style selection window ("Choose a style" in the context menu of the control).
  • Improved layouts: in a layout:
    • hidden controls (via "Layouts .. Visibility by layout .. Hide in this layout" in the context menu):
      Are always hidden (regardless of the value of the Visible property).
    • non-hidden controls:
      Starting with version 28 Update 1, they always take into account the value of the Visible property (set by default in the description window of the control, and modifiable programmatically)
  • New behavior: characteristics of a CSS style ("Style" tab of the description window of a control):
    • Until version 28, you could select a CSS style associated with the control to determine the characteristics of that CSS style. No distinction was made between standard and overridden characteristics.
    • Starting with version 28 Update 1, you can distinguish overridden characteristics of the CSS style of the control from non-overridden characteristics. The <Undefined> tag appears next to non-overridden characteristics.
Report editor
  • Report creation wizard: "None" option now available for the selection of the skin template of a report. In this case, no skin template will be applied to the report.
Minimum version required
  • Version 28
