Extended currency control

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

The currency control can now display a different currency than the locale currency. This means a user in one country can view amounts that are designated in a foreign currency, using that currency's international conventions.  For example, a credit card transaction in Germany might need to be posted in US dollars. 

Responsive layout groups and grids

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

The Responsive UI was introduced in Version 7.1, and has now been enhanced in two areas, to create an entirely responsive UI.

 

PRPC 7.1.4 introduces the Layout Group control, which can render its contents as “tabs,” “accordions,” or as a “menu.”  The rendering choice is driven through the presentation layout (the skin), which presents the information responsively:  a “tab” at a certain breakpoint can turn into an “accordion” or a dropdown-style menu, depending upon what format would be most appropriate for the device/screen size being used.

 

The grid functionality has also been enhanced, so that grids may be displayed on a tablet or a phone without the need for horizontal scrolling, offering the optimum experience on a mobile device.  A PRPC Grid Layout now supports responsive breakpoints in the skin definition in which columns can drop off or be consolidated according to screen size.

 

Designers will be able to mark columns in the grid by importance, and at the first breakpoint, the columns marked as “less important” will be dropped off first.  At the second breakpoint, the grid turns into a “fat list,” with the most important column displaying as a heading for each item in the “fat list.”  Styling options can be associated with these breakpoints.

Improved accessibility support

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

PRPC support for accessibility has been enhanced to allow applications to better meet the standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), 2.0 AA. 

Input Method Editor (IME) support

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

PRPC has added support for the Microsoft Windows Input Method Editor (IME), to allow developers to enter complex characters in four different East Asian languages using the standard keyboard.  The IME is a way to create input using a keyboard, by using additional windows for character editing or selection, in order to facilitate entry of alternate writing systems.

BIX performance improvements for CSV output in the Pega Cloud

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

BIX performance has been enhanced to download up to 25 GB of data per hour for extracts from a BLOB-less class table for CSV output. This high-throughput option is available only for Pega Cloud instances that use a Postgres database. This option is used automatically for these types of extracts.

When this option is used, the –x and –c command-line options for BIX are not supported, and the checkSum field in the manifest summary is not populated. If you need these options, you can revert to the previous implementation by using a setting in the prconfig.xml file.

For more information, see BIX high-throughput data downloads in the Pega Cloud.

Device preview includes a configurable list of common mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Pega Express device preview displays your application in a simulated mobile device. By previewing your application, you can view the user experience on a desktop, tablet, or phone. You can select from a list of common devices or add devices to the list by editing Pega-DevicePreview-Device.

For more information, see Previewing an application on a mobile device.

Ignore browser and operator locale to display Designer Studio in English

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The operator preferences configuration includes the option to ignore the browser and operator locale. Some rulesets are shared between Designer Studio and end-user portals. Translated words might occasionally display in Designer Studio. Selecting the Ignore locale check box ignores the locale of the operator and browser to display Designer Studio portals in U.S. English only.

For more information, see Updating Designer Studio preferences.

Flexbox layout mode for dynamic layouts

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The flexbox layout mode is available for dynamic layouts and is now the default layout mode for newly created dynamic layouts. In a flexbox layout, sections contained within the layout can grow or shrink to fit the available space, providing a more efficient way to distribute space between items in a container. Existing dynamic layouts can be converted to the flexbox layout mode. You can configure the layout mode on the Presentation tab of the Dynamic Layout property panel.

For more information, see Dynamic Layout Properties — Presentation tab.

Harness settings container format includes option for no markup

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The harness container format includes a No markup option. This option removes the non-semantic table tags from the container header, making it more consistent with current UX best practices. The No markup option is required for the new flexbox-based dynamic layouts to work correctly in Internet Explorer 11.

For more information, see Harness form — Adding a container.

Field value inspector in Live UI

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Easily identify and translate field values with the field value inspector. You can also use the field value inspector to validate translations and update missing or incorrect translations. The field value inspector is on the Localize tab of Live UI.

For more information, see Field Value Inspector.
