Questions...

Postby dglojnar » Thu Jan 22, 2015 7:14 am

Hi to all Neobookers and new users of long-awaited AppBuilder :-)

After playin' with AppBuilder, I'm a little bit confused...

I'm NOT an HTML5/Java/JS expert or programmer, so forgive me if my questions are stupid :-)
Ok, it's a beta and some features are missing or not implemented, no problem..

Question 1:

No matter where I put the push button, on preview mode he's always on top-left corner ?
How can I change position of push button ?
Or position is default ?
I tried with other objects and some objects works as expected, some not...


Question 2:

When I compile project and go to PhoneGap, I can't build application.
Reason is - no key selected (Android, iOS) or no Publisher ID (Windows Phone).
How can I create ID/Publishers ID ?
Where ?


Question 3:

Calculator from Sample App directory not working as Windows Desktop HTML application.
It's been some script error window with Yes/No option which is not working, must end task from Task manager.
Probably some beta issue, I think....


Question 4:

Is it planned some HTML action wizard, or I need coding "by hand" ?
Same question for JS...

I don't even know is it possible to make some action wizard (too complex etc..), just asking :-)


And here's some information about testing systems:

Windows 8.1 64-bit, SP1, 8 GB RAM
Windows 7 64-bit, SP1, 6 GB RAM
Windows 7 32-bit, SP1, 4 GB RAM


With best regards :-)

I'm not able to reproduce this here. All objects by default are placed in absolute coordinates unless you specify an alignment in the object's properties. When aligned, objects will snap to the edge of the page, but they will do this in design mode too.

Do the buttons in the calculator example appear in the correct location on your PC?

Question 2: When I compile project and go to PhoneGap, I can't build application. Reason is - no key selected (Android, iOS) or no Publisher ID (Windows Phone). How can I create ID/Publishers ID ?


You do not need a key/ID for Android or Windows Phone, so you can leave those fields blank and still build your app. You will need a key/ID if you want to distribute your apps through the official Android or Windows Phone stores.

Since Apple devices are closed systems, you need to go to Apple and set up a developer account in order to build an iOS app. I think the website below is where you can register as an Apple developer and get an ID:

https://developer.apple.com/register/index.action

Question 3: Calculator from Sample App directory not working as Windows Desktop HTML application.
It's been some script error window with Yes/No option which is not working, must end task from Task manager.


I believe that this is caused by your PC's security setting, probably somewhere in the Control Panel under Internet Options. I'm not sure exactly which settings need to be changed yet as HTA's seem to work on some PCs and not others. I will have to do some research on this.

Question 4: Is it planned some HTML action wizard, or I need coding "by hand" ? Same question for JS...


There probably will be wizards for JS and CSS at some point in the future. In the case of JS I'm not sure how much that will help someone who isn't familiar with JS. Most HTML and CSS is handled automatically for you, so you shouldn't need to write much or any of it on your own unless you want to do advanced things.

Hello Dave !

First of all, AppBuilder is wonderful piece of software:-)

Thank You for quick answer :-)

About buttons:

You're right, I made some changes with button aligning...mea culpa.... :roll:
From Your Calculator, all buttons is placed correctly.-)
I think I must check my Internet settings for HTA.

And, as member CN_Iceman said - I need learn some things from scratch :-)


About keys for Android / Windows phone

PhoneGap can rebuild app, but errorr is still here, same as David de Argentina have:

1. Error - Malformed config.xml

Yes, that's my fault. A fix should be available either later today or tomorrow.

Me again...

Problem about button placing is actually happend on following scenario:

New app - Workspace - generic phone - sizing - auto fit width and height is CHECKED !
When I unchecked sizing, eveything works fine :-)

And another question - do You planned add some more actions in the future ?


With best regards !
