Electronic Ink – A powerful new Data Type In Alpha Anywhere


Ink Data Type

With the increasing adoption of the stylus as part of the hardware found in mobile devices and even in laptops by companies such as Samsung, Apple and IBM, we have focused on adding robust “ink” into Alpha Anywhere

“Ink” is a special Alpha Anywhere data type that can be stored as a character field in a database. The data stored for an Ink control is a vector diagram. By storing the Ink data as a vector diagram, the Ink image can be scaled up or down very well. Ink is available in the UX Component as a data control. Ink objects can also be displayed in reports. This video demonstrates how you can add Ink data to your UX Components and reports.
