Android Based CSPro Fourth Beta version release..

visit counter for blogspot

This is the fourth beta release for the Android version of CSEntry. Highlights of this release include:

- a new combo box control for Android; this will display the contents of a value set and it will also allow the interviewer to type in a response that falls within a value set range; this can be good for a field like Age, where generally you will want the interviewer to type a response but you also want to show entries for responses like Missing and Don't Know

- the case tree now displays the labels for answered values, not just the value itself

- a new synchronization tool has been added, with support for FTP and Dropbox; this will be documented shortly

Because many email programs/servers are now blocking .app files, we decided that we should rename the extension of the CSPro logic file. We are now calling it .apc (application code). Old applications with .app files will run correctly, and when saved after modification, will retain the .app extension. However, if you create a new application, the logic file extension will be .apc, so do not be startled when you start to see .apc files.

Android Update

It has been a long time since anything has been posted here, but it is because we are busy working on the Android version of CSEntry. We have made good progress, and hopefully we can release an alpha version of this in a month or two. If you would like to be notified of the alpha release, please sign up on the beta software page.
The first release will be targeted mostly at phone users, as it will be one-question-per-screen. Later we will add support for multiple questions on a screen. As with the old Pocket PC version, you will design your application on the desktop and then deploy it to your Android device to run the program.

CSPro 5.0.1 was recently released!

visit counter for blogspotThis version has some significant improvements:
- Internationalization. CSPro now has full support for non-Latin languages (Unicode).
This is a large change to CSPro and even affects users who use only Latin
  languages. Read the "Unicode Primer" in the help documentation for more
  information on how this change will affect you.

- Data and specification files are saved in UTF-8 encoding instead
  of ASCII/ANSI format.

- New multiline alpha fields, useful for addresses, memos, or notes.

- The tick marks on alpha fields can be removed to support scripts with
  connecting features, such as Arabic, or scripts where multiple
  keystrokes comprise one character, such as Devanagari.

- Users can modify the font used in the CSPro Designer.

- A PDA (PocketPC) version is no longer supported.

- Bug fixes and small enhancements.
