An example of the power of Programming in Alpha Anywhere - Generating a UX component at run-time using Xbasic


Alpha Anywhere offers high levels of abstraction and allows you to tell the system what you want to accomplish through selecting options from lists and then it automatically does the coding for you. 

Alpha Anywhere  is also flexible enough to let you code  if and when you want to.

Below is an example of this power.


In most cases, the UX components that your application uses will be built at design-time. However, there may be use cases for UX components that are generated dynamically at run-time using Xbasic.

The a5wcb_createDialogUsingXbasic() allows you to generate a UX component using Xbasic.

In this video we show how a button on a UX makes an Ajax callback to generate a UX on the fly. Another button then opens this dynamically generated UX component.
