    Default Mixing editor sets, ink and UX components

    This might be a dumb question, but ...

    Several of the form controls, notably the write-on 'ink control,' would be a great help on some of my existing UX components - my users are all i-pad'ers. I'd like to re-develop my existing UX-with-list-control components into viewbox with form and editor sets eventually, but in the meantime is it possible to add an ink control to an existing 'list-control-with-detail component?'

    Yes. The ink control is a data control. It has getValue and setValue methods. You can add it to the Detail View. Ink is a first class data type in Alpha Anywhere. You can use in in Lists, Grids, Reports, etc. When you configure the field in the List control, set it's type to "Ink".

    You may want to turn on auto commit for the ink control. By default, this is turned off. If off, changes to the ink data will not be recognized until an explicit call to commit the data is made.

    See example component, which has auto commit enabled and uses the default CSS class names, editor overlay, and default css on the CSS tab in the ink settings: listWithInk.zip
