Building Offline Capable Mobile AppsIf you're application is dependent on a network connection, it's not really mobile. This is where offline forms can help. Offline web applications are able to function without a continuous network connection. Data downloaded from the server before the device enters offline mode is cached in local storage. Edits the user makes while offline are also cached until the mobile device can connect to a network again. Once the mobile device is connected, the offline data can be synchronized back to the server.
Building offline apps has never been easier in Alpha Anywhere. In these videos, we demonstrate offline capabilities now available in Alpha Anywhwere. Functionality has been added to the UX component's list control for adding offline support. We walk you through the process of adding offline support to a list control and demonstrate how to store and persist data to local storage.
