- Alpha TransForm Mobile Filler Versions
A list of changes in each new version of the Alpha TransForm form filler mobile app.
Some features are unavailable or may not behave as expected in v1 of the Web Filler. This includes:
- Access to On-device Data: on-device data cannot be downloaded to the browser and is unavailable. You can access images, however, if hosted on an external server. See Adding a cloudpath Policy to display assets in the Web Filler to learn more.
- Audio and Video Recording: recording audio and video is not available.
- Barcode Scanning: barcode scanning is not available. Barcode values must be entered manually.
- GPS functions: values returned by the browser depend on the computer's IP address, which may not return the user's actual location.
- ajaxGET() function: calls using this function may fail in the browser filler. Use ajaxSendRequest() or ajaxSendRequestFromServer(). See Calling Web Services in TransForm Forms from the Web Filler for more information about using ajaxSendRequestFromServer().
- On-device Data TPL Functions are unavailable: this includes phoneGapTFExecuteSQL(), inappbrowser(), and fileviewer().
- phonecall() TPL function: calls may only be made from the web filler in browsers that have been configured to use a specific application to make phone calls and support opening an app to make the call.
These features and more will be added in future versions of the Web Filler.
The $environment system variable contains properties you can use to determine which filler app is running. If your forms use TPL code to access on-device data, you'll want to take advantage of these variables to adapt your forms for use in the web filler:
- TPL Variable
Has a value of 1 when running in the web filler.
If running in the web filler, the portion of the URL after the domain name.
Has a value of 1 when running in the mobile filler.
