Grid cascading filtering

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Internet Application Composer mashup code generation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Case types can be added to an external web page by using the mashup code created in Case Designer. The mashup code is custom HTML that can be added to Internet Application Composer (IAC) codes.

The Actions menu in Case Designer includes the ability to automatically generate IAC HTML from a case type. The HTML is then copied and pasted into the target web page through standard IAC options.

The generated code is optimized for responsive web sites and responsive Pega applications. See Generating a mashup code in case configuration.

Edit application elements at run time by using Live UI

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Live UI supports the addition, deletion, or reordering of UI elements within the run-time portal. Move elements by dragging and dropping within the tree. Elements can be added, deleted, and moved within or between dynamic layouts at run time by using Live UI.

Full-screen menus improve mobile navigation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

A new full-screen menu setting for enhanced mobile functionality provides a smooth and seamless mobile navigation experience. Previously, regular drop-down menus were difficult to navigate on a mobile device. Select Component styles > Menus > Menu Bar > Display "Show Menu" as full screen menu to enable and configure this setting in a Skin form.

Personalize your dashboard with widgets and templates

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

New personalized dashboards can be customized and shared by end users. Select a default template or create your own. Choose from one of several default widgets or design a configurable widget to provide core business metrics to your users. From the new Settings tab, you can select whether a section is a template or widget.

New property pxCommitDateTime

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

A new property, pxCommitDateTime, records the time when a record or updated rule was committed to the database. This property also allows for incremental extracts when running BIX.

Number and text input controls on Android devices may not display the correct keyboard

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When running a Pega 7 application on a device using the Android operating system, pxNumber and pxTextInput controls may not display when using the desired on-screen keyboard. This happens when the number or text input type is set to number.

At design time, the input type is selected in the Editable Format section of the Presentation tab in the Cell Properties panel for a pxNumber or pxTextInput control. Due to a known limitation in some versions of the Android OS running on some devices, the keyboard displayed at run time may not support entry of decimal values when a Number type keyboard is specified.

To resolve this issue, use the Phone type when numbers with decimal values may be required. Using the Phone type displays a numerical phone keyboard. The Android phone keyboard includes both commas and periods so that decimals may be entered.

Note that this issue only occurs on Android devices. It is recommended that applications for iOS continue to use type=“Number”.
