UX ComponentApplying Security Client-SideA common pattern in applications is to control the visibility (or enabled state) of certain controls on a page based on the 'role' that the user has in the application security framework. For example, a button might only be visible to users in the 'Administration' role.Typically, the security settings are enforced server-side. But in some situations you might want to enforce the security rules on the client-side.

In this video we show how controls in a UX can be shown/hidden client-side based on the user's role.

UX Component - List ControlExporting Data in List to Excel or Ascii FilesA popular feature in the Grid component is the ability to export the data in the Grid query to an Excel or Ascii file. The UX component List control also allows the data in the List to be exported to Excel or Ascii. When you export data from a List you can either export the data currently shown in the List, or the data in the query that the List is based on. Setting up the code to export the List data is easily done using Action Javascript.In this video we show how the data in a List and in a List query can be exported to Excel.
