    Default Variables Training Videos

    I still consider myself to be a newbie on Alpha. I have struggled (and have noticed others struggling) with the concept of variables. I have the various purchased videos that cover much of the basics.....but I have not found a nice structured group of videos that details all the manners in which variables can be called, set and used to filter grids.

    I would LOVE a set videos that cover this material. Yes, I am using Alpha Sports to learn concepts but I am the type of learner that benefits from WATCHING this process being performed.

    Page variables, using variables from the log in process, setting session variables from grid fields (both new records and edited records), etc

    I second this. After trying (and so far failing) for several hours to generate a protected session variable at runtime, I too would benefit from this.

    I'm finishing up another set of videos for Alpha Software right now. It's a re-recording of the Webinar we ran earlier this year. A big feature of this webinar was that I wrote much of the course as we went, based on my perception of the users' needs. We had a fairly advanced group, so I added in a bunch of custom stuff, especially on the last day, to help give everyone at least one really good carry-off.

    Variables, of course, came into this pretty well so I already have some in there that would probably be useful, though it's often mixed in with other matters -- almost has to be if you think about it.

    But, let me see about adding some more at the end that might help with this.

    Steve,

    Thanks for the info on the new videos...any idea as to availability? I have watched all the videos you have made related to web apps (including the multi day intro to web course, total training, etc) While all of them are VERY good, none really dig into variables to the level I am hoping to learn. I would love to see how to set variables from grid values, updating session variables based upon edited records, creating variables based upon new records, etc.

    Thanks!
    Greg
