Hi ,

As discussed in many threads here Many developers worry about long list of panels , actions in formspider IDE and how it can be handled.

i just want to ask that if u can give option to 'create folder' in panels,actions and other navigators of IDE then there will be much easier for the developers to identify and work on particular module of application. i.e to convert my oracle forms application in formspider, if i have 20 forms in it, then i will simply create 20 different folders for each one of them so that developer will get more clear vision of form he is working on.

to be more clear ,if i have many modules in my application and i can create folders for each one of them in 'panels' navigator, in 'action' navigator and so on ,then it will become more simpler to identify the panels, actions, data sources and other related objects of the application.

Hi Sachin,

Thank you for the suggestion. I agree that this is a good idea. We should do something like this. We already have a ticket for this in our system and I updated the ticket with a link your request.

In the meantime, you can try using prefixes for the objects you create in Formspider and then you can search by a prefix to filter out the irrelevant objects. I know that this is not nearly as nice as having folders but it gets the job done.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
