Stonefield Query SDK Version 8.1

 We are pleased to announce the release of version 8.1 of the Stonefield Query SDK. Here are the new features.

Report Designer

  • The new Data Grid button in the ribbon and toolbar output a report to a data grid window.

  • Everywhere a password can be entered, such as the login dialog or the Email page of the Options dialog, now has a "show password" button that toggles whether the password is shown as plain text or "*****" (it's always stored encrypted regardless of the setting of that button).

  • You can now control what folder scheduled tasks are placed in rather than always being in the "root" folder in the Task Scheduler.

  • The Test Syntax button in the Customize SQL Statement step of the Customize Report Wizard now tests whether the SQL statement works with the database engine you're connected to; previously, it only tested whether it was valid in Stonefield Query.

  • If Shutdown.txt exists at startup (created either by checking for updates or clicking the Shutdown button in the Displayed Logged in Users dialog), you are now prompted whether maintenance has been completed and if you respond yes, that file is deleted and startup continues.

Stonefield Query Studio

  • The View Table Contents and View Field Contents windows now have search, filter, and export to Microsoft Excel functionality.

  • Project encryption is no longer supported.

  • VFP9R.dll, VFP9RENU.dll, and ISXDL.dll are no longer installed since they are no longer required.

  • The Generate Setup function now requires Inno Setup version 6.1 or later.

  • The installer has a more modern icon and appearance.
