Dynamic Connection Strings

15 September 2016

Connections to data providers are typically static, meaning that when your application first connects to a data source, it only knows how to connect to that particular set of data for the remainder of the session. Now, thanks to the new SetConnectionProperty and UpdateConnectionString functions, you can dynamically alter a connection string during run-time.

IntelliSense Overloads

17 August 2016

IntelliSense has always been a useful feature of the Expression Editor, but it’s become even more so with the addition of overload support. Many KnowledgeKube functions include parameters that change the behaviour of the function depending on the value they are supplied; rather than try to explain every potential behaviour in a single IntelliSense panel, the new interface initially provides the function’s basic syntax and lets you scroll through its parameters using the up and down keys on your keyboard.

File Uploader

10 August 2016

Adding a file uploader to your KnowledgeKube application lets your users select and upload files from their network or local machine. Uploaded files are cached in session memory, from where you can use the WithUploadedItems function to perform a number of operations on their contents. This includes generating image thumbnails, returning the total size of all uploaded documents, and writing the contents of individual files away to a data source.

Geolocation

18 July 2016

KnowledgeKube now supports geolocation, letting you capture GPS data such as the longitude, latitude, speed, and bearing of a user’s mobile device.

Export Data to a Spreadsheet

05 July 2016

Sub-Models and Form Data

05 June 2016

It’s now easier and more intuitive than ever to add sub-models to your KnowledgeKube applications. A sub-model is a collection of settings, values, documents and calculations that are connected to a model without forming part of its core logic. Models can have multiple sub-models, so you can create a suite of bespoke processes to suit a range of scenarios. Data collected through a model can be processed by each sub-model, returning contextual results to a user them having to answer the same questions repeatedly.

Custom Data Providers

01 June 2016

KnowledgeKube comes pre-packaged with a wide selection of data providers, but thanks to the new custom provider feature you can connect your applications to even more third-party data providers. By creating a custom provider, you can draw specific data from any compatible RESTful service, as long as you have the information needed to authenticate with that service.
