This release is primarily for usability enhancements and bug fixes, plus a change to the system requirements for users who log in to their Caspio Bridge account with Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

Feature Enhancements

“File URL” Parameter Formatting
When inserting a File field as a parameter into an HTML Block or elsewhere, you can now choose to insert the entire URL of the file stored in your Caspio database, as opposed to just the file name. This option is available by selecting the “File URL” format when inserting a field parameter. Note that Advanced Options and Parameters must both be enabled and the field insertion options are only available when displaying data (such as in reports and details pages).

Option to Hide Cascading Radio Buttons
When configuring cascading radio buttons (on the Advanced tab), you can now choose to hide child options that do not match the parent selection, or display them as disabled.

Additional System Parameters
Two new System Parameters allow you to capture more information about the user’s environment when a record is submitted:

  • “Browser” captures the end user’s browser name and version.
  • “User Agent” captures the entire browser signature which usually includes browser, operating system, and browser add-on details.

Uncompressed Export via DataHub
When configuring a Scheduled Export Task, you now have the option to export a compressed ZIP file or uncompressed files in the data format of your choice.

Change to System Requirements

Caspio Bridge Administrative Interface No Longer Supports IE8
Beginning with this release, Caspio Bridge account login and administration no longer supports Internet Explorer 8. We have made this choice in order to streamline our product development, as IE8 does not confirm to modern browser standards. Please note that your deployed DataPages will still function normally on IE8.
