Hierarchies and Properties Window

The configuration hierarchies of the App Studio present the properties of the selected nodes in the Properties Window. This is the dynamic form based on the “survey” capability of Touch UI. App Studio relies on the Touch UI framework of the host application to present its user interface.

Learn about the App Studio October 2023 Feature Drop. It introduces the new metadata-driven project configuration tools.

The navigation nodes of a hierarchy are presented above the Properties Window area. The information pane below displays a brief description of the selected property or category.

Offline App Step-By-Step

Code On Time offers a unique method of offline application development.

You begin by creating an online app instead. Put together a few data models and your application is ready to execute in any major web browser. You can even have it installed on your device to run natively.

Use the Project Designer to mark the data-aware pages as “offline”. This will enable the atomic data entry in the forms. Master and detail data items are persisted together when the top-level form is saved.

Next enable the Offline Sync Add-on, the optional component that brings about the magic. Users in the “Offline” role will see how the application front-end and account data are downloaded to the device as soon as they sign in. The front-end will look for the data in the local storage when performing the read and write operations. Users will have to explicitly sync their pending changes with the online back-end.

Learn to build offline apps with an online-first approach!

The installed app will also work in the offline mode without any distinguishable differences with the offline mode in a browser.

Offline Sync 2.0

We are pleased to announce that the next generation of Offline Sync Add-On is now available.

The “magical” software component turning online apps into offline apps was first made available in November of 2019. The only way to experience the offline mode was through the Cloud On Time native application for a particular mobile operating system.

The second generation of the add-on brings the offline mode to any browser implementing the ServiceWorker, Cache, and IndexedDB APIs. That includes all major browsers on all mobile platforms. Now you can build the offline-first apps that work on any device powered by any operating system. The recently introduced native app installation capability improves the user experience and transparently delivers the true “always offline” mode.

The add-on licensing has been greatly simplified to meet the needs of our customers.

Only Code On Time makes it possible to build an app that works both in online and offline modes.

An app created with Code On Time can work both in the online and in the offline modes. The latter requires the Offline Sync added to the app configuration. Users with the "Offline" role will have the app front-end and data downloaded into the WebView storage upon sign in. Offline users must explicitly sync the pending changes with the application on the server. Offline Sync works in the browsers and in the installed apps.
