Nested actions with subcontrollers

With a subcontroller you can grouping several actions and show them in a drop-down button. In your controllers.xml you can write:

<controllers>
    <controller name="Color">
        ...
        <subcontroller
              controller="MyProcesses"
              image="processes.png"/>
    </controller>
</controllers>

This adds a new button called MyProcesses that opens a drop-down list.


The options in the drop-down list are from the MyProcesses controller.

 

Improvements in 'My reports'

These are the 'My reports' improvements:

  • The user can modify the column labels.
  • The columns shown use the labels instead of the property names.
  • Hidden columns, they can be used for filtering and ordering but are not shown in the report.
  • The default value for comparators is '=' or 'starts with'.
  • Combos for @DescriptionsList references.
  • 'Generate Excel' action available.
  • Summation for columns allowed.
  • Report file name is the report title.


 

Improvements in list mode

These are the list mode improvements:

  • Booleans in list and collections are rendered with a green check sign.
  • On choosing a combo in list the filtering is executed automatically (it can be deactivated with filterOnChange=false).
  • The user can use calendars to filter by dates in list and collections.
  • New setLabel() method in Tab to change the column labels programmatically.
