DaDaBIK manufacturer description

DaDaBIK 5.1.1 is a very popular and mature Open Source PHP application which allows you to easily create a highly customizable database front-end/application without coding. You can use it to create in a few minutes a very basic CRUD (create, read, update, delete) database front-end or to develop a more sophisticated database application. No programming skills are needed to use it; if however you are a PHP programmer with DaDaBIK Administration you can save tens of hours of work. With DaDaBIK download (differently from many competitors) you don`t produce a PHP script, which would become outdated when you modify the schema of your database, but instead you directly use its abstraction layer that can be easily updated every time you modify your database`s schema. DaDaBIK uses the ADOdb and the PDO database abstraction libraries in order to support as many DBMSs as possible, at the moment it has been tested on MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle and MS SQL Server. The strength of DaDaBIK lies in its ability to be customized. For example for each table field you can choose:

  • if the field must be included or not in a search/insert/update form and results table

  • its label

  • its content format (e.g. numeric, alphabetic, e-mail, url...)

  • the HTML input type (e.g. textbox, menu, date, rich text editor, password box...)

  • the possible values, also driven from another table (foreign key support)

  • and more...

What is new in 5.1.1 changeinfo log

New features The users page (admin area) has now a direct link to the users page (front-end). Fixed bugs If a web applications/site X, installed in the same domain as a DaDaBIK application Y, used a session variable name that also the dadabik application used, unexpected and risky effects could happen if the application X or another page set a PHPSESSID cookie valid also in the DaDaBIK application path (e.g. valid in the whole domain '/'). For example, if X (which could also be another DaDaBIK application) used the same session variable name to set the current "where clause" for a search, changing the "where clause" in one application could affect the "where clause" in the other. Now a new parameter (dadabik_session_name) is available in config.php in order to avoid this kind of problems. In some cases, for DaDaBIK ENTERPRISE, new users (created via DaDaBIK in addition to the default ones) could not log-in because DaDaBIK thought they were LDAP users (even if they were standard DaDaBIK users). In addition, the authentication type field was showed in the insert/edit form while it should not have been (in all versions). Fixed. If a field had the "Primary key field" set in form configurator but it was not a select_single field, DaDaBIK could produce unexpected results. Fixed. During insert if, for a select_single field without a linked table, a new element was added to the list ("other...") and the value of this element needed escaping (e.g. contained a '), even if the element was already available in the list it was added (resulting in a duplicated item). Fixed. The custom formatting functions were not applied individually to linked fields (select_single field type). Fixed (not fixed for CSV export, see later). DaDaBIK did not work correctly and could produce error messages in the following cases:

  • Insert or Search in a form having a select_single field whose linked table had read permissions set to MY
  • Edit of a record having a select_single field whose linked table had read permissions set to MY and having the selct_single field name different respect to the "Primary key field" parameter of the linked table
DaDaBIK could produce a "[08] Error: during query execution." message with some DBMS configurations when trying to install a table. Fixed. Page separators did not appear in the details page even if the parameter "Separator before this field (details page)" was set in form configurator. Fixed. In form configurator, the use of separator for options, linked fields and master/details (~ by default) whose length was more than 1 could lead to unexpected behaviours; now it is not possible anymore to save a separator having a length more than one. The bug has anyway been included in the known bugs for DaDaBIK applications which are already installed. DaDaBIK Enterprise didn't check if the dbms_type parameter was set in config. Fixed. Hungarian translation is now complete. The documentation has been slightly improved. The content of site_path parameter in config.php has been better clarified. Instructions about table inclusions have been improved, in particular it has been highlighted that if you want to delete a table from your DB you should first uninstall it in DaDaBIK and then drop it in your DB. New known bugs A new known bug has been added to the documentation: the content type formatting rules were not applied individually to linked fields (select_single field type) for CSV exporting. It will be fixed with DaDaBIK 6 because it requires core changes that we are going to apply anyway in DaDaBIK 6.
