Drive v1.0.4 with SubForms Support now Available

I’m looking forward to the day when I’ll be announcing new releases of my Drive CodeSmith template library to generate custom code for Sueetie, but while I’m still doing a lot of Community Server stuff I will continue to release updates to Drive for CS development. Version 1.0.4 has support for creating Chameleon SubForms. I also made a number of modifications to the Form templates to reduce keystrokes.  Drive is available at

Template updates

– Removed SourceTable requirement on Forms – FormEmptyStructure.cst
– Removed ControlUtilityPrefix property requirement from FormFilledStructure.cst
– Added ability to generate ints in SubFormFilledStructure.cst as TextBoxes rather than only the default DropDownList control.  Will add to FormFilledStructure.cst when able to do so.  Updated DRIVEHelper.cs library accordingly.
– Added ability to generate FormHTMLElements.cst ints as TextBoxes
– Fixed bug in creating NText SQL parameters that was limiting the field to 16 characters

New Templates

SubForms – SubFormFilledStructure.cst

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
