Our plans for Active Query Builder


Dozens of minor improvements from version to version make it difficult to assess the development direction. The need to change the project source code makes moving to a new major version not so attractive. Thus, many users still use old versions of Active Query Builder. In our blog, we tried to summarise the changes that were made in the component compared to the previous major version.

We understand the weaknesses of our product, and we want to make it better, just like thirteen years ago, when we started work on Active Query Builder.

Our primary goal is not just to replace the text editor with a graphical interface (although it deserves our close attention) but to give the user an opportunity to think about the data he needs to get with the query, not about the nuances of the SQL language.

So, we have huge plans for the current year.

  • First, we want to get rid of the current Query Columns Grid and replace it with the new control which will combine the tree-like criteria builder, the query results data grid and the sub-query result preview.
  • Next, we will let undo any change made by the end-user in the user interface.
  • Also, we are preparing some API and core improvements which will simplify the design of SQL queries for developers.

Stay with us for this year, and you'll be able to surprise your end-users and let them be more productive than before!

We have been using Active Query Builder for over a year and must say that both the product and support have been outstanding!

We chose Active Query Builder due to its flexibility and features, but have been truly pleased by its power and hidden capabilities. ...

In summary Active Query Builder provides excellent components, great support and a very flexible feature set. It has allowed us to provide features to our end users that I did not think would be possible in the first release of our new tools and in a timeframe that was much shorter than planned. I would recommend that anyone dealing with databases in the .Net world should be aware of this component and its capabilities!
