WKWebView is integrated

Apple made it mandatory for all new apps to use WKWebView instead of UIWebView. So, WaveMaker is updated to use WKWebView. For more information, see our blog on WKWebView.

Bug fixes


  • Show errors like a deleted prefab, wrong font reference in CSS before deploy process instead of showing deployment failure after a long wait. #doc
  • InLine edit of Table should support the same form validation methods that are supported on the form. #doc
  • Pulling from VCS sometimes would cause the project to become unresponsive.
  • In design dialog for a text widget of type number, when you give a number and click the enter key, you see a console error "ERROR TypeError: Cannot read property 'dataoutput' of undefined. This is not fixed.
  • On Page.OnReady, Variables with "Request data on page Load" were not invoked in Angular Build. This is not fixed.
  • Liveform submit fails with an error "Process rejected in the queue, check the inflight behavior" when you click Save multiple times on a slow network, which inserts multiple blank records instead of one. This is fixed.
  • The dropdown was not visible for autocomplete widgets when they were inside the livefilter, and when the displaylabel attribute is present on the wm-filterfield. This is now fixed.
  • When on selecting an item from the list, the data table (added row expansion feature) will be filtered based on the selected list item. However, when row is expanded and later selecting list item throws error and data is not loaded in data table.
  • Cannot use $i to loop through the Variable while specifying the "IN" filter condition.
  • Exposed a new property called Auto Close property.
  • Build in phonegap fails when the cordova is huge. This is fixed.
  • Wizard widget: Accessing widgets on the onLoad event of a navigation step throws error. This is now fixed.
  • Issues with FileUpload Widget are fixed when more than one File Upload widget is used on a single page.
  • For Chart widget, Custom Colors property in the Advanced Settings was not considering the array of elements. It is taking the first value as string. This is now fixed.

Mobile

  • The scroll is moved out of the mobile viewport when Form has many input fields when you try to enter data. This is now fixed.

Deprecated


  • Platform support for Mobile Apps on Android Kitkat is deprecated and is going to end in WaveMaker 10.5.
