UiPath Release Notes

UiPath.Form.Activities

v1.4.0


Release Date: 4 August 2021

  • This version includes various stability and performance fixes.
  • A new functionality has been added to the Button component: update your forms with a button click, without executing the Do block of the Create Form activity.

 

v1.3.0


Release Date: 12 July 2021

🚧

Important!

Be sure when you commit to the UiPath.Form.Activities pack v1.3.0 and the features it brings , as it is not backward compatible to lower versions. That is, once you go v1.3.0, you can't go back ;)

Features

  • Do you need to clear all fields in your form? Look no further, as in this release we deliver the reset functionality to the Button component.
  • Restrict the type of files available to the end user selection by adding specific file extensions in the File / Folder path component.
  • Your requests to use a local CSS file to customize forms have been listened. In this activity version we deliver a new Format property field allowing you to upload CSS files from your local path. Nothing stands between your form and your creativity anymore, so go ahead and customize buttons, backgrounds, labels, and so on. Read our tutorial to find out how.

Improvements

  • You are now able to set a minimum or a maximum date for your Date / Time component of your form. Also, with the new functionality, you can make unavailable for selection specific dates, weekends, or weekdays. Make sure to check out our tutorial for more information.
  • Drop-down labels longer than 65 characters can be displayed when you search for them using a string section beyond the 65th character. To learn more, read our tutorial.
  • You can now clear date fields in your form and save them like that.
  • To turn on autofocus for Text Area component, open the corresponding Component JSON and add the following key-value pair: "autofocus":"true".
  • File or folder paths now support white spaces.
  • Render images or PDF files dynamically, by setting their paths as variables in the FormFieldsCollection field.
  • You can now configure your Checkbox components to trigger the execution of the activities from the Do block. Find out more details in our tutorial.
  • Narrow or widen columns in tables in Grid components as you need, by tweaking the Header and Row Templates. Learn how to do it from our tutorial.

Bug Fixes

  • The strings you enter in the first Value field of a Select Boxes component > Data tab are no longer switched to camelCase.
  • We fixed a bug causing the drop-down Values you set in the Data tab of a Drop-down List component to revert to default (the name of the label in camelCase).
  • Rendered forms may result as blank, and even after maximizing the form window, you cannot interact with the UI elements. This behavior is caused by the active hardware acceleration on applications that use Windows Presentation Foundation. To fix the issue, update your graphics driver.
