Release Notes - Visual Form Editor 2.30

New Features

  1. Addition of page close handler functionality
    1. Global option to turn off all page close handler functionality (for users that are building forms for earlier version of the EMR than Centricity® EMR 2005)
    2. Global option to add MEL watcher expressions to evaluate page close handler upon re-opening update if timeout occurred while page was open
    3. Global options to automatically change the appearance of "required fields" if they have not been completed when the user attempts to close the page
    4. Automated page close handling added to the Data Validation section of the Advanced options for data entry fields. The Warning option will display a message only, while Force will prevent closing the page. Change appearance will automatically change the items appearance based on global settings (see c above)
    5. Page items now have a field to enter a user defined MEL expression to be processed upon closing the page. To prevent the page from closing under certain conditions, use the expression: return closepage("FALSE")
    6. RUNPROCESS buttons include an option to check page close handler functionality prior to processing code. This can be used to prevent the user from jumping to another form using a button in order to bypass the page close handler
  2. Automatically create logical names for DOCUMENT variables when importing a form created with EFE
  3. Printing of all three views (form, function and output)
  4. Allow dynamic labels for all items with a label
  5. Display the item label in the title bar of the Item Properties dialog
  6. Allow dropdowns to be dynamic AND limited to choice list simultaneously
  7. Additional flexibility in configuring database connection and support for Centricity EMR 2005 single-user training database
  8. Allow WARNING messages to be suppressed when building clinical kit
  9. Include HDID value, in addition to short names, for observation terms in the .txt file created during build
  10. Include HDID value, in dialog used to search for observation terms
  11. Menu options from within MEL fields to insert medication DDID code or problem ICD-9 code
  12. Display connection information in status bar if a single item in the form view is selected

Bug Fixes

  1. Fixed error in output view which would improperly calculate offset if no errors were found during clinical kit build
  2. Corrected error which would occur if trying to Insert Symbol after "expanding" a MEL expression
