I'm very, very happy with 5.0! It's the first version that I've created financial apps that at least are running on my iPhone!
Thanks a lot!
The feature of 5.0 that made this possible for me:
- Support for Swift. I'm shameful to say that Objective-C and I are not compatible. Swift, on the other hand, fits my way of thinking!
- Support for iOS 9 (it made it possible to make batch updates and handle casting between AnyObject and NSManagedObject arrays)
- The IB components and templates from 4.0
With these technical vectors I'm again able to create database apps in hours. Just as I was with dBase, Paradox and Delphi. This gives me a lot of joy and pride, since my health and age have taken a heavyli toll on my working capacity.
My app workflow is:
- Open a list of accounts with balances
- Click on a account to see a list of transactions for that account with the newest first
- Add an transaction to that list
- Have a button on the account list to update balances
I've done that with:
- Two SCTableViews each connected to account and transaction.
- The SCTableViews are not connected, so I had to use a Swipe gesture to move between them.
- I was not able to update balances in the account list, but had to do it in the transaction list.
- I've a lot of problems updating the balances on the account list without running the "Update balances" method twice
I have a sense that I'm using STV wrong. That I should change the account list form to also include a transaction list, and then hopefully STV would take care of updating the account list balances when coming back.
Do any of you give a relative newbie some comments and ideas?
