- What's New in Version 11
- /documentation/pages/Index/What's New in Version 11.xmlWelcome to Alpha Five Version 11! If you thought we added a ton of functionality in Versions 10 and 10.5 plus the Feature Packs, you may have to recalibrate your notion of what defines a "ton of functionality". :-)
- .NET Framework Support
- /documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/Platform/Dotnet/.NET Framework Support.xml
Alpha Anywhere supports calling into .NET Framework assemblies from Xbasic. This opens up a wealth of additional capabilities for Xbasic programs for very little effort.
The .NET Framework support is encapsulated by an object-oriented Xbasic wrapper in the form of a namespace. In practice, this means that once someone has written the few lines of Xbasic code it takes to import a .NET class, calling that class's methods will be no more complicated than calling any other Xbasic function.

- Writing Xbasic wrapper classes for .NET classes
- /documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/Platform/Xbasic/Writing Xbasic Wrapper Classes for .NET classes.xmlXbasic has a simple method for defining native wrapper classes for .NET classes that can help you avoid writing registration code every time you use a class. Simply create a class in your project and make the body of your class the desired registration code. Then save the class file as
. and reference it in your code as :: . Note that the class filename includes a dot, while the class reference includes two colons. While you can use your own namespace and class names, it makes life a whole lot simpler for you and anyone else who uses your class definition if you match the .NET class hierarchy. Also, do not bother to create a class file for a preloaded class. The following example should make the methodology clear.
