Forms from 3.0 Palm to 4.0 Blackberry

Postby SteveBehr@Gmail.com » Tue Jun 02, 2009 12:44 pm

I've been using HanDBase 3.0 for Palm with custom forms/databases I created.
I've upgraded to 4.0 and switched to a Blackberry, so I'd like to transfer my database form to the Blackberry. Possible?

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the post. The custom forms portion of HanDBase Palm OS is only available on Palm OS and Windows Mobile at this time. We don't yet have a facility to show and use forms on the BlackBerry, just the Edit Record screen. Your databases should still run fine, but they will be minus the forms. We're at the point right now where we're evaluating what the top features the BlackBerry version should implement, so I will assume this is a vote for Forms, right?!

Dave,

PLEASE create a forms option for the BB OS. I have had to stop using Handbase because I can't get my forms to work on my BB. I create and use databases all the time, but my most important databases require forms to work correctly. Thanks for any help in this area!

Thanks for the vote for Forms on the BlackBerry. We will definitely look into this if the demand is there for it!

I upgraded from the 3.0 Palm basic to 4.0 Blackberry Pro version. I was disappointed my forms based custom application was unusable. I could manage if I could resize columns, but I can't even do that. So my Handibase lies fallow on my BB Bold, and I make do with Docs to Go spreadsheet. We need forms!

Another vote for forms!
Migration from Palm to BB is painful enough!
