New features in mobile platform

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.10.2168.

We are currently developing our mobile platform by introducing functions available on the PC platform and delivering mobile device-specific capabilities. Below you will find some of the features we find most important.

Geofences

We have implemented a new event that occurs when a mobile device crosses the border of a pre-defined area. We call such an area a geofence. A geofence is a circle on the surface of the earth, described by its central coordinates and its radius.

Cryptography in 1C:Enterprise mobile platform

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.10.2168.

Cryptography functions, such as digital signatures and encryption, which used to be exclusive to the PC platform, are now available on mobile devices.

Generally speaking, these functions are similar on both the mobile and the PC platform, but there are certain differences.

For instance, mobile applications can only use cipher algorithms that are supported by the device’s operating system. The list of these algorithms is firmly embedded in the mobile platform.

Data composition system on 1C:Enterprise mobile platform

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.9.1818.

We have implemented access to the data composition system from 1C:Enterprise script on the mobile platform. Now you can create a data composition schema template in Designer and generate reports on its basis. You can also use 1C:Enterprise script to configure custom filters in the composition system and retrieve data from the database for further processing.

Previously, some parts of data composition were present on the mobile platform. But, firstly, they were not sufficient for proper working with reports, and secondly, they could not be used from 1C:Enterprise script.

Add-in technology for mobile 1C:Enterprise applications

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.9.1818.

For the mobile platform, we have implemented support of add-in technology. You can create Native API-based add-ins in the same way as it is done on the platform for personal computers. Of course, there are some specifics that are associated with mobile operating systems. But in general, everything is very similar.

When developing an add-in, you must create its variants for all operating systems that interest you and for all processors of mobile devices, where it is supposed to work. All of these variants must be placed in a ZIP archive and then in an Add-in configuration template (this is the only way to add the add-in to your configuration). This is a new type of template that we added to the platform.

Support for new features of mobile devices

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.9.1818.

We continue to expand our support for functionality specific to mobile devices. The new features that we have implemented in the platform will allow you to develop more convenient and functional applications.

Improved notifications

Some time ago, we taught mobile apps to work with push and local notifications. If a notification arrives on a phone at the time when the application is not active or is not running, it is processed by the operating system. For example, it can play a sound to attract the user's attention.

And if a notification comes at the time when the application is active, it is delivered immediately to the application, where it is processed by the notification handler assigned by you. Previously, 1C:Enterprise did not offer a feature that would attract the user's attention while 1C:Enterprise script is executed. We do offer it now.

We have added a new PlaySoundAlert() method to the MultimediaTools object. It plays back a brief sound and/or vibrating alarm on your mobile device. You can choose either a standard sound signal or use an audio file that you included in the mobile application.

Thin client on touch screens

This feature is implemented in 1C:Enterprise version 8.3.9.1818.

For a thin client, we implemented scrolling and zooming gestures in order to ensure comfortable work with touch screens.

You can scroll through text documents, text boxes, graphical schemas, planners, and formatted documents with two fingers.
