"Worst Product Ever"
It does generate code from a database
Poor backend architecture. To do something as simple as seperating the dropdown list display from the value requires a function override.
The SQL Statements are not accesible. The editor reloads for every single change. Randomly looses changes.
The worst is how the changes are lost when editing the form layouts. If you make any change on the screen then all of the HTML work is lost. If you add a field all of the HTML is lost. You can backup all layouts and reset the bindings but eventually it is just faster to write it yourself. I cannot stress the frustation over loosing the work on a regular basis. The archtecture is confusing and has not real documentation to speak up. They have the standard class generated documentation that does not tell you anything that you could not get from the source code. There is no class map.I just lost my database server. It started referencing the Server.TableName instead of Server.Database.TableName. Lost my entire project that I have been working on for 6 weeks. THIS PRODUCT SUCKS
Support is non existent. The only reponse that you get from a support request is them asking you to send them more information. They want your schema and project file for the simplest question. You know- ask for something that is difficult to put together and hope the request goes away. They do not try to actually understand the problem. When you do take the 2 hours to write it up the only response you get is that they will have an engineer look at it and you never hear from them again so do not waste your time.
Imagine having a form with tab that has multiple record views. You edit a single character and wait about 90 seconds for the entire page to reload. You then make a second change and wait another 90 seconds for the entire page to reload. Get the picture? Now you finally have your screen layed out. You think- well let me add this one field and boom- the entire page resets for some reason. The product is awful. Run - do not walk.
