We are very excited to introduce Raptool 4. We have focused allot on adding
new features that let you make your apps look better, do more and even faster
development times. Here are some of the new features:
Text to speech, calendar, image/signature capture, video and much more.
New features. Examples:
You can send an SMS from your app through the Script Server. Use our account for easy setup or create your own account with your SMS provider.
Send an email directly from your app. Make a HTML template to make it look nice (any design you want). Create a PDF report and send that to your customer. For example you can send a shipping note when you are finished picking an order in a warehouse app.
Text to speech
The app can read out any text inside your app. For example, in the warehouse, the voice can tell you the next stock location, quantity to pick, product name… Available in most languages.
Voice to text
Use your voice to enter text in to any input field.
Send an address and start Google Maps from your Raptool App
Display a video in any part of you app. For example you can show an explanation for the user of what to do in an app…
Background database sync
Databases can be synchronized in the background. User can work offline in places without mobile connection or Wifi, data is then synchronized in the background when internet connection is back. The last changelog check all changed data since the last connection. The user always has the most recent data available and can get lighting fast response from a local database.
iOT sensor support
Connect sensors and store values in Raptool. Examples: scales, temperature sensors, switches through com interface, IP integration...
Take an image and log the file in a database. Synchronization of images can be done directly or in the background. CDS2 also supports displaying images in the web interface.
Customers can sign on a touch screen phone or tablet. A signature image is saved locally on the device or synced to a server.
Write standard SQL scripts in your apps to join, find and edit data in databases. Use offline or online databases and join with any data from the app.
The search result displayed in a table is updated with each character you type. Great for finding articles in an article list, names etc.
Operation and Comparison scripts
Create complex scripts in your apps. Now you can do more advanced calculations in the app so you don’t have to contact the server for advanced calculations. Less actions to make an app = faster development.
New features in operation that allows you to list all actions you want to Hide/show/disable/change colour to hide features. Example: Hide the OK button until the form is filled in completely and then Show when it is finished. Change colour to red if a value is too low.

You no longer have to manually enter the settings for each table in a CDS database.
You can now easily create a list of all texts contained in an app and translate them to another language. Translate directly in the designer or export to a CSV and import again.
Change all colours in an app in a few clicks. Makes design changes easy.

Set breakpoints to make debugging easier
Advanced debug mode
Press F8 to run your app in the simulator in debug mode. Debug mode lets you see all values and jumps as they change to easier find bugs in your apps.
