Coming Soon in Alpha: How to Dynamically Populate a UX with a SQL Table

We're gearing up to deliver a new full release of Alpha Anywhere and along with it over 100 new features and capabilities. Below is a sneak peak of one such new feature along with a tutorial video. This is now available in the pre-release version of the software, available to all active subscribers.

Dynamically Populating List Columns and Data with the Generic SQL Table Viewer

The List control on a UX is one of the most versatile controls in the Alpha Anywhere rapid mobile app development platform. To demonstrate its versatility, this video shows a sample UX component that can be used to view the data in any table in a SQL database.

The UX has a dropdown  where the user can select the table in a SQL database and then a callback is made to the server to dynamically populate the List with the data from the table. In addition, the UX contains a search part where the user can specify filter criteria to filter the data in the table.

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
