Replacement for Validator Widget in 8.4

Replacement for Validator Widget in 8.4

What does PTC recommend that I use as a replacement for the validator widget in TWX 8.4? Seems that the validator widget has been removed in this version (or, at the least, it's be renamed to an unobvious name).

 

Thoughts?

Please note that Validator and Expression widgets were moved into "functions", right-bottom panel of the Mashup builder:

Thank you!

 

Just a head-up for PTC - when I Google 'ThingWorx 8.4 release notes', this is the first page I get: https://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_platform/r8.4/en/index.html#page/ThingWorx%2FHelp%2FRelease_Notes%2Fversion8.4.0ReleaseNotes.html%23.

 

^ These docs don't say anything about the change that you mentioned. Not sure why these release notes are different from the url you sent?

Hi @ague.

 

The easiest way to find it is to search the page:

 

"The Functions panel for expression and validator functions was added. The panel replaces the Expression and Validator widgets."

The question here is why the link that comes up with Google Search does not reflect full release notes that include the feature change.

 

@ague  thank you for your feedback, we contacted the appropriate team to address this!

Exactly @posipova - thank you for your help!

 

@slangley - yes, I understand how to search on a page for something. But as I mentioned on my post, the point to address here is that when you Google search (for example) the release notes for 8.4, your top hit will be a slightly different PTC document which does not address the validator issue (and therefore, it seems, is perhaps an incomplete document). 

 

Thank you!
