DriveWorks 22 SP0 Information

Innovation and continuous improvement underpin our team's approach to software development.

You can learn about all of the new features and enhancements in this release of DriveWorks on the Enhancements page.

Web-Based Form Technology

This release further builds on the introduction of Web-Based Form Technology (in V21) by adding many new properties to allow enhanced styling to be applied to Form Controls.

We are also excited to announce the addition of new Form Controls to the Control Toolbox.

SOLIDWORKS 2024 - Design Automation

DriveWorks 22 SP0 fully supports SOLIDWORKS 2024 in addition to 2023 and 2022.

Previous Release Information - DriveWorks 21

Please also review the following information (from DriveWorks 21 SP1) which is still relevant for this release.

Web-Based Form Technology

This presents an essential upgrade to the technology used to display User Forms.

Previous versions used separate technologies to design on desktop and then emulate for the internet. This led to slight discrepancies between the two formats.

DriveWorks 21 introduces a unified web-based Form technology that ensures the behavior and appearance between desktop and web applications is consistent.

Existing projects, upgraded to DriveWorks 21, may see slight visual and style changes as well as enhancements inherited from adopting this technology.

Please see Web-Based Form Technology for more information.

Lookup Functions and Nearest Matching Strings

Lookup Functions support a more logical Nearest Match approach when searching for strings.

When the MatchType parameter is set to TRUE, the closest matching string will be judged by matching the characters at the start of the string and finding the closest next letter.

This allows searching for full or partial text strings in a table.

For example, the table to search in has the following column:

Letters are bold to indicate the found letters from the example below the table.

DWSRLT30-M09DriveWorks Serial Number (30 Char) - Main Series 9001249824.pdf

The Lookup function is searching for DWSPKR17-WH9 (which does not exist in the table column).

When Nearest Match searching is turned on (MatchType parameter is set to TRUE), the lookup will match the string starting from the start of the string, and find DWSPKS in the table.

This is because the DWSPK characters match, and the closest match to R is the S (and not the L in the DWSPKL string on the row above).

This applies to the following Lookup Functions:

A full explanation of how Matches and Nearest Matches are calculated for Numeric, Date and String values is given in each topic.

Image Support

SVG and WebP images are now supported while image types with the extension .tif and .tiff (no reliable browser support for these image types) are no longer supported in the following areas:
