I think this is a great idea but I'm feeling very deflated over brilliant database lack of support and the current state of v10.3 so for me I would rather hold off submitting files until I'm in a better frame of mind and Brilliant Database have fixed the bugs.
This example show how you can add a Percentage Progress Bar inside your Form.
For some of my larger databases where a lot of data is gathered, rather than the production manager having to look through different forms to see what stage the work was at, I implemented an overview page that displayed core information and a single percentage bar that represented the stage that the product in question was at in production.
There are many different applications you can use this idea for. In the example, I've added some generic information to follow an order for example.
Is it just me or are other people having difficulty looking at the picture James Tubbritt posted above (the Attached Thumbnail is what I want to see NOT the Attached File)? I am always interested in seeing what James is working on!
It still will not open... but it could be that dbforums.com has been acting really, really strange on my computer as of late. Whenever I attempt to log in, I get notices that I my user name and/or password is not valid but it has never changed. Oddly, sometimes I receive this message and it also shows that I am logged in???
Although I have switched most of my attention from Brilliant Database to Blender 3d, I am still very much interested in the activities here - especially Mr. Tubbritt's the creations hence my interest in seeing what he has made!
When you create a project in the SDK a folder is created that has the same name as your database file name. Inside the folder there are sub folders and one of them is called myfiles.
My files is also a system variable inside your database. The idea behind this is, any content you place into the myfiles folder will be compiled with your application when you are making an exe.
So bearing that in mind, it's a great way to include any additional content you require in order to give the end user a much better experience. With a little magination, you can for run Java, FLASH, HTML, Video, and all manger of media inside brilliant database.
For LOCAL html that has advanced functions (calls advanced java) you must however use the myfiles variable with “file:///”
So to call an advanced html file, you would use
Attached is an example of this working. Unpack the zip file to a folder on your PC and open the database. All going well, you should see a 360 Degree image you can interact with. The buttons in the 360 Degree image on the bottom right should also override brilliant database and give you a full screen view.
Thank you James.
Earlier I was using my files variable only for fetching manual or files which is very big in size. Now it has given me a light to use other programs inside BD.
James is really innovative!!
