The time has come for the first platform update of 2023, and it's a big one! This time, we've been working on the improvement of input validation, a new and seamless developer onboarding experience, and the option to track developer activity in the activity dashboard.

How to create successful application that ensure adoption
Build successful applications

Learn how you (developer, engineer, end-user, domain expert, project manager, etc.) can contribute to the creation of apps that provide real value to your work.

Improved input validation

We have improved the input validation on multiple parts! See how you can block actions on invalid fields, mark fields as invalid, and easily validate steps. 

Block actions on invalid fields

In the future, limitations you already annotated (like min/max) will block the user from performing any subsequent actions (such as clicking a button, generating a view, or moving to the next step). Learn how you can activate this now in the documentation.

Mark fields as invalid

When you are performing input validation, you can mark fields as invalid. This makes it a lot easier for users to correct mistakes. Visit the documentation to learn more about this feature.

Step validation

Enable validation code to prevent users from moving to the next step in case their input is not valid. Visit the documentation for more information on how to enable step validation.


Seamless developer onboarding

We have created a new and seamless onboarding experience in which developers are guided through all the necessary steps to start building apps. In only 5 minutes, you can install VIKTOR and start the demo application!   If you haven't installed VIKTOR yet, do not hesitate any longer and log in to get started.

View developer statistics in the activity dashboard

To give better insight into the adoption of VIKTOR within your company, we have added the activity of the developers to the activity dashboard. Here you can find data on the number of developers and how often they log in.
