The latest release of HCL Leap is out and includes numerous updates which make it easier for designers to create more engaging applications. Go to the HCL Leap Sandbox to see a demo of all the new features or head directly to What’s New with HCL Leap 9.1.
The most significant area of improvement is with PDF handling. Application designers can now specify where to store filled PDFs. This can be any non-root directory location that the user has write access to. The new feature allows Leap to pass filled PDFs off to network locations that are then synchronized with downstream content systems. Other PDF handling improvements include the ability to map Leap table data to PDF “tables”, and the ability to flatten filled PDFs into read-only documents.
Designers will find many new features for building applications like:
· The ability to control white-space and line breaks in hover text and text items.
· A new middle stage called Submitted is now the default for all new applications. Unlike End stage, this new default provides users in the admin role with a convenient way to update data after its initial submission or import.
· A service configuration option was added to that allows you to block user input until a service is complete. This provide in many cases a more graceful approach to pre-population of choices based on user selections.
· The ability to work within an ElectronJS app was added allowing you to essentially deploy Leap apps as desktop apps.
There are more features in the release than are listed here - so head to the demo and give them a look!
