Using Alpha Five v11 Web Components on the Windows desktop and sending tasks and appointments to Google Calendar


In a recent post entitled "Using Alpha Five v11 Web Components to Find an Edge in Windows Desktop Software Application Development", Alpha developer Marcel Onck provided an overview of his Horsebase application, and explained how he has used Alpha Five v11 Web Components to significantly enhance his Windows desktop database applications.

"The desktop does not confine you to only that—you can also have connections to the outside world."

Now, Marcel, who is based in the Netherlands, has sent us a short video demonstrating  how his desktop database applications, built exclusively from Alpha Five v11 web components, can communicate with Google and send tasks, appointments or whatever else is needed straight from the Grid to Google Calendar.

While there has been plenty of talk lately about the mobile future, it is important to remember that desktop database applications will remain crucial to businesses in the coming years. In his video, Marcel stresses how much additional functionality Web Components can bring desktop developers saying, "The desktop does not confine you to only that—you can also have connections to the outside world."

As one blog reader put it, "If you haven’t tried the Web Component desktop, you ARE missing out on the best thing since sliced bread."
