EZ App Lynx Update 3.0

Thursday 06 April, 2017

The EZ App Lynx compiler libraries, Android Application, and iOS Application have all been updated to to version 3.0! This version includes three new field types to be used in the app.

The first new addition is the Image field. This allows the app to load images from the web or use some of the already preloaded images in the application bundle. Images loaded from the web are cached on the device so they only need to be downloaded the first time a connection is made. Image fields can be used to display plain images, or the images can be used as buttons. Button images can be one-state or two-state buttons acting similar to the normal button fields. These fields allow two separate images to be loaded, where the first is the "on"/"pressed" state and the second is the "off"/"unpressed" state. If only one image is specified, the image field uses the same image for both states. See EZApp.h and ex_ezapp_images.c included with the current CCS C compiler for more info on how to use the Image fields.

The remaining two new fields are the Graph and Series field types. Together these allow for adding bar graphs and line graphs to the application. The Graph field sets up the graph type, grid lines, labels, data ranges, etc., while the Series field sets up how the data will look on the graph, including color, line type, and series name. Multiple Series fields can be tied to one Graph field, allowing for multiple data sets to be shown on the same graph. See EZApp.h and ex_ezapp_graphing.c included with the current CCS C compiler for more info on how to use the Graph and Series fields.
