Thank you for your suggestion! We’ve passed this along to the engineering team and we’ll keep you posted via the blog (http://blogs.office.com) if and when we implement this feature.
Thank you for sharing! We’re always looking at understanding the feature sets that folks would find value in having as an out of the box feature of the platform. We’ll pass this along to the engineering teams. We’ll also update the blogs here at http://blogs.office.com with any news.
These are definitely some of the more highly asked for features, thank you very much for sharing! We are in communications and discussions with the LightSwitch team. However, please keep in mind that the LightSwitch set of tools is for professional developers, where we see Forms vNext really being mostly for Information Workers. We’ll be updating everyone on http://blogs.office.com/ with the latest when we have it to share. Also, thanks for mentioning the Bootstrap library. We are encouraging and embracing the use of any 3rd party JS library that is relevant to the app that folks are building.
Lightswitch and access sould talk? yes, and that's amazing how microsoft teams hate each other (groove, sharepoint, excel lists, access, infopath, project, lightswitch, azure mobile services, project sienna, TFS workitems, MSCRM FetchXML,...), and none of them is aligned with the ASP.NET WebAPI OData.
Comment: It's actualy a good news that the sharepoint team agreed to use Access tecnology for their new FORMS, although as I stated, I don't agree with the roadmap.
I would prefer to use some sort of FORMs equivalent to OData, a generic way to vizualize any data source / record using nice conventions, and allow for extensions to augment the UI experience using templates/snippets. Maybe the new http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn636913(v=office.15).aspx#sectionSection1 List Control and a future Form Control will just take care of any rendering requirements for ALL office lists, online and offline.Jose Antonio Silva shared this idea ·

shouldn't this be supported by the new people picker widget? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn636913(v=office.15).aspx
