The behaviour of databaseManager.getDataSetByQuery(QBSelect, int) changes behaviour. Before release 8.0 this call will not take table filters into account, but in v8 release the filters will be applied. The method databaseManager.createDataSourceByQuery(QBSelect) will use table filters, both in older versions and in the new release. Both methods have a new optional boolean argument to explicitly use or skip table filters.
For the NGClient the limitation of only being able to use CSS properties that Servoy explicitly supports in StyleSheets has been lifted, any CSS property can now be used. Instead of preprocessing the stylesheets authored by the developer before sending it's content to the browser, the only preprocessing that now takes place is expanding syntax to browser specific syntax.
This change has the following behavior changes:
For checkbox component, in order to horizontal align it from css, we no longer support text-align but have to use justify-content (flexbox system).
Because we can't have an onrender callback for all the components, Servoy introduced another way of doing an onrender, which will be most helpful in a portal/tableview like view. In the 'servoyextra' package there is a 'onrenderlabel' which can be used to change its appearance.
See: OnrenderLabel source for the implementation.
This label can display any dataprovider and have format support for that dataprovider. But besides that it has a styleClassExpression property which is also a dataprovider. This dataprovider can be a calculation which returns a string that is can be 1 or more class names. Those class names are defined in the solutons css (so a class that sets the background-color to red) this way you can change the appearance of a single cell in a tableview based on the record data or any relation.
