My Blog: University Package Status Update

19 January 2022

So much to do, but so little free time.

I have recently been wrapping up my previous job and have started a new one in the University I work at, so I’ve not had a lot of spare time to devote to this project. The winter break did afford me an opportunity to dip my toes back in the water and get coding again.

Following on from my last update, I have now generated all of the external C# functions, classes, and methods! Of course, there will be some tweaking and a few minor rewrites, but I'm confident that I've checked off all of the functionality that I wanted for the beta release.

The next step is to review the global datatypes and data folders for any fields that may be missing, and then complete the code commenting and documentation for the internal and external C# functions. I’d also like to experiment with adjusting the input formats of the internal functions to use C1 Types instead of GUIDs, so that they can accept values from a datatype select field instead of a text box. This would make the internal functions easier to use, especially in isolation. I also want to see if I can use an overflow so that they can also accept GUIDs when called from an API.

I’m hoping that this stage will only take me a month to do, and then I can move onto finishing the XSLT functions that actually display HTML on the website.
