DBxtra .NET ver. 4.2.0

Bugs fixed:

  • Designer – Opening two already stored objects and creating cross-references to each of them, the application allows me to save both objects, but when I try to reopen any of the objects, the application crashes.
  • Designer – Moving a heterogeneous object between two projects, and if any of them has more connections than the other, the application begins to multiply the connections asking to configure them indefinitely.
  • Designer – Deleting a project with one or more folders, the application neither delete the folders, nor the connections, nor the project, however it deletes the objects.
  • Designer – Returning back from a print preview of a report, the application displays the object (tables) empty, however this does not affect saving the object or if you reopen it.
  • Designer – Adding parameters to a heterogeneous object, the application does not recognize the table automatically (as it does in a normal object); this causes that the application asks to set the parameters, and after providing these parameters the application does not save the configuration. It makes that the application ask again for setting the parameters and so on.
  • Designer – Adding an object from the dialog “Add DBxtra Source” (while creating a new query) after adding a function with parameters; the application sends an exception.
  • Report Web Service – Creating a new object and opening the data grid view, I modify it (grid view), come back to the object window, save it and then save the data grid view. If I open the object from the web, it does not show the initial view in the dropdown (the object opens with the custom view).
  • Report Web Service – After reaching the timeout, the application does not ask for retyping the login and password and it sends an error
  • Schedule Server – The application does not delete the schedules from the database once the Project is already sent to the recycle bin.
