Release Notes

RAD Studio 5.2.0

Update 9.18.2014:

I had been using the SQL smalldatetime data type for all of the stored procedures and this results in rounding date time objects to the nearest minute.

This release now uses the SQL datetime object which includes seconds and milliseconds. I have not testing saving a datetime parameter to a smalldatetime; I do not know if this will produce an error or if the datetime object is truncated into a smalldatetime object. You can always modify the stored procedures or you can change the underlying column to a datetime date type.

Also in the SetupControl, when you click the 'Launch RAD Studio Configuration Manager' button, the database name is now populated for you.

RAD Studio 5.1.0

Update 5.7.2014:

I just discovered that the Visual Studio Project Updater was not working for Visual Studio 2013, unless you had Visual Studio 2010 or 2012 installed.

I recently did a clean install of Windows 8.1 Update and only had Visual Studio 2013 installed, and the Project Updater failed to work.

I also fixed one other bug that has bothered me for 4 years, but not bothered me enough to fix it, until now; On the Data Writer, there was always an extra line after the call to:

setObjectParameter() method

I moved the line to after the closing bracket where it was supposed to be.

I figured when I discovered the fact RAD Studio wasn't working on Visual Studio 2013, I had to at least fix one other bug (undocumented features as I call them) to justify a new release.

If you experience any problems, please create an issue here and now I get alerts or email me at corby@datajuggler.com if you have any questions, comments or kind words (thank a deep breath and think happy thoughts before you email please).

Also, make sure every table has an auto increment primary key, I just had a problem with a database I had scripted that didn't have the keys included and the Data Writer has a bug; I will fix it 'someday' not sure what month that is on the calendar.

More tutorials and videos coming soon.

RAD Studio 5.0.2

Sorry for the long delay but RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit 5.0 is finally here.
I tried to get this release out for the New Year but at my day job if a project starts taking too long my boss starts talking about outsource my job so I cannot work on my projects as often as I wish.

Update 1.14.2014: We are building a help system into RAD Studio to help new users get started. When I say "we" that is counting my two dogs and my cat. This morning I was creating a new project, and it took me a couple of minutes to remember where the Project Folder is located, and I realized if I do not know then it is definitively not obvious to others that are not as familiar with RAD Studio as I am.

We are asking for users to compile a list of things that you feel could use a little more explanation.

Send an email to support@datajuggler.com with any questions or comments about RAD Studio.

New features for 5.0:

RAD Studio has been upgraded to the .NET Framework 4.5, but the project templates are installed for both 4.0 and 4.5 versions of the .NET framework.
If you are still using Visual Studio 2010 you should download RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit 4.6.1.

There is now a RAD Studio Setup Control shown on the Main Form at startup.
In prior versions until you set your connection string values in the app.config file, RAD Studio tried to connect to SQL Server with invalid credentials and would hang until the timeout occurred. In this version the RAD Studio Setup Control is shown until you click the 'Test Database Connection' and then click the 'Do Not Show This Message Again' or if you add an app.config entry for 'SetupComplete' = true.

There is now a button to launch the RAD Studio Configuration Manager to help you setup the App.config values for RAD Studio.

Also in this release you can now set a Connection String entry in the App.config file. This value still needs to be encrypted using the RAD Studio Configuration Manager.

I also included links for the Word and PDF versions of the RAD Studio Quick Start and RAD Studio database and Fields tutorial as well as a button to link to the RAD Studio Intro video on YouTube.

And finally in this release I included a new Random Banner control that links to my commercial products.

Data Juggler is proud to announce the release of XML Mirror which is an advanced C# xml parser using reflection. XML Mirror was built using the same C# Class Writer that is used in RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit.

Please watch the YouTube video “Create a C# xml parser in 60 seconds with XML Mirror” on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEt8gB3IdKs

Also please check out another one of our open source projects DB Compare http://dbcompare.codeplex.com which was also built using RAD Studio Code Generation Toolkit. DB Compare has actually become more popular than RAD Studio.

Please email support@datajuggler.com or create an issue on here if you encounter any problems with the new version.

If you like this project or any of our open source projects you can thank us with a kind word, a rating or a like on one of our YouTube videos.
