version 17.08

This release adds support for odk parameters.   Actually currently there is only one parameter supported and that is max-pixels which can be used to reduce the size of photographs taken in a form.

Usage

Open the form in the online editor and select “Parameters” as the property you want to change.  Then find an image you want to reduce.  Then set the max-pixels parameter to the size you want.  For example:

max-pixels=500

The number is the maximum length in pixels of the long edge of the image.

Notes

  1. As well as SmapServer 17.08 you will need fieldTask version 5.06
  2. There is no support in xlsForm for parameters yet hence you will need to enter the parameter in the online editor as described above.
  3. You can consider parameters and appearance as doing very similar things .  In the past appearance was used for many of the capabilities that odk will now be adding using parameters.
  4. Help is available in the reference guide.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5_SmpWlQYxvWlBoWkdiT3FrY1U/edit
