  1. What's New in 9.6.03 (MX02) ==================== Web Enhancements: ----------------- + Static server pages have been enhanced so that labels can be bound to fields, making it possible to select a field by selecting its label. For RadioButtons, labels can be associated with the values. You can configure the behavior of the webgen statement, globally or for individual fields, so that it: - Generates a label element, instead of producing plain text. The label can have a for attribute that references the id of the associated field. - Generates a unique id for each field, which can be used to bind the field to labels, or address the field in JavaScript. + New placeholder XHTML attributes x-id and x-for are available for USP widgets and labels: + New assignment settings have been introduced to support the id and for attributes in static server pages: $WEBGEN_X_ID_DEFAULT, $WEBGEN_X_ID_INSNAME, and $WEBGEN_X_FOR_DEFAULT + The UHTTP component for handling HTTP requests has been enhanced to support Unicode, and other character sets that Uniface supports, such as Shift_JIS. + The new DB2 U4.0 connector provides native data pagination by means of the offset option of the read statement. GUI Enhancements: ----------------- + Uniface 9.6.03 makes it much easier to respond to changes in the layout resulting from form windows being resized and split bars being moved. The Attach to Window Border (Attach) property has been significantly enhanced so that widgets can be attached to split bars, if they are present, instead of the window border. New values enable you to choose whether to resize attached widgets, or maintain the same size and simply move the widget with the border or split bar. + The Radio Group widget now supports the Attach and AttachMargin properties. + A new extended trigger is available on the Form Container and Tabex widgets. The Resized trigger allows you to control the response of the widget when the widget is resized. For example, you could display a different component when the size is larger or smaller than a specified size. Currency Enhancements: ---------------------- + Uniface 9.6 now supports the z/OS platform. Uniface now supports the Uniface Router on z/OS, which replaces the UMPIRE and HCI. This makes z/OS configuration much easier and brings Uniface operation on this platform in line with all other supported platforms. Currently, only the DB2 and Sequential databases are supported on z/OS. There is no support for IMS, ADABAS, VSAM, QSAM, or for IMS/DL and CICS integration. + A new version of the DB2 database connector is available. The DB2 U4.0 connector is supported on all platforms, including z/OS. + A new version of the TXT connector is available. The TXT U2.0 connector supports Unicode. The uni connector option defines the default Unicode encoding used by the TXT connector, and the /uni assignment switch defines the Unicode encoding to use for a specific entity. Updates for Software and Documentation Issues: ---------------------------------------------- * Issue Number: Description * 30103: The UPOPMAIL Send operation has been enhanced to allow sending to other recipients even if one of the recipients is invalid. A new operation, GetRecipientDetails, has also been added to the UPOPMAIL component. It returns a list of recipients that were not accepted, and the SMTP reply code and message text. * 30227: A new operation, SetMessageID, is available on the UPOPMAIL component. * 30291: The component library has been added to the search path for glyphs. It is now the same as for menus. * 30352: The stored layout of a form (if HISTORY is set) is ignored when the form is displayed in a popup window.
