    Farnsbarnes got a reaction from HeezyMeezy in Issues with latest Caspio release 18   
    Thanks for the offer HeezyMeezy.  Would love to take you up on this but unfortunately I'm weighed down with client confidentiality issues - I've got to first come up with a  way of unpicking the code to just show the essentials.  Will let you know if I get there!

    Farnsbarnes got a reaction from gsgriffin in Can JS extract data from data table?   
    Thanks douvega.  I suspected it might come down to using API calls.  However, while I understand the Caspio codes and explanations as presented, I just can't get my head around actually putting the explanations together to make a basic API call.  If only Caspio had a step-by-step example of the simple operations required to have a GET View Rows up and running (a video would be good).  This is such a big and obvious gap in Caspio's explanations that I can't help suspect it's purposely done!   Do you know of any such help anywhere?
    I appreciate the 3rd party recommendation.  Perhaps for later, as I'm on a bit of a shoestring budget at the moment.
    Thanks

    Farnsbarnes reacted to kRv in Reload Main Page   
    Hello Farnsbarnes,
    Can you tell me please, do you use different domains for parent page, and for iframe? If yes, proposed solution cannot works due to security restrictions. Can you please open browser console, and look for some run-time errors, when you submit form in iframe? Can you see some error with similar text? "SecurityError: Blocked a frame with origin..." 
    If you have similar error, you can use some different technique based on messages. Please pay your attention that it will works in modern browsers only. You can see list of supported browsers here http://caniuse.com/#search=postMessage  
     
    Add code below to header on your parent page:
    window.onmessage = function (e) { if (e.data === "refresh") { location.reload(); } }; Add code below to footer in your DataPage, which will open via iframe.
    <script type="text/javascript"> document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit = function () { if (window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) { window.parent.postMessage("refresh", "http://bridge.caspio.net"); //put your own domain here } } </script> Thanks

    Well guys, it seems that Caspio has been listening to our concerns regarding the cost of data transfer.  By pure chance I've just revisited the pricing section of the website and discovered that their pricing plans and content have been updated.  It appears that Caspio is sensibly giving much more help to the smaller guys, while loading the higher fees on to the larger companies.
     
    Data transfer is now "unmetered" from the professional plan upwards.  I'm assuming that "unmetered" means 'free', although I'm not sure why they don't just say "free".  I hope it's just semantics and that I'm being over-suspicious!
    And a quick glance shows that pivot tables are at last included in the professional plan.  On the downside the professional plan still doesn't include pdf downloads (why not??!!), and the number of datapages is restricted to 50.
     
    But overall the changes to data transfer bring a huge sigh of relief to business start-ups like me.  It also means I can be less paranoid about measuring specific cost efficiencies of my datapages and use that time on buidling my business instead.

    Wow, I've only just started developing my application and you guys are scaring me.
    I hadn't realised Caspio was so hungry on its data transfer.    My marketing strategy will be to cast the net wide and generate high usage on a free part of my web database, but only a small proportion of clients can be expected to upgrade to a paid service.   This is a very common business model in a wide range of sectors.   Yet It's easy to see Caspio's charges running into 10's of thousands of dollars, killing my business before I get the chance to build a revenue generating client base.
     
    I've no problem paying those kinds of fees once they're affordable.  But if Caspio is going to strangle the small guys before they have a chance to grow, its marketing should be clear that they are not a solution for the business start-ups.
    I think I need to look around!
