Xbasic Guide - An introduction to Xbasic

Alpha Anywhere's low-code approach to application development means you can build most of your application without writing a line of code. At some point, however, the time may come where you need to create your own custom logic to handle the needs of your company.

Alpha Anywhere's Xbasic is a powerful server-side programming language used to extend the core functionality in Alpha Anywhere. Using Xbasic, you can incorporate business logic to create workflows, automate reporting, build web services and more. Backed by a robust language library, Xbasic can help you deliver those custom requirements that other no-code platforms cannot.

The Alpha Anywhere Xbasic Guide - An introduction to Xbasic is a new guide that teaches the basic programming concepts needed to use Xbasic to customize your web and mobile applications to your exact business requirements. This includes:

  • Creating Variables and Expressions
  • Writing Conditional and Loop Statements
  • Working with Arrays, Object Pointers, and Collections
  • Building Custom Functions
  • Capturing and Logging Errors
  • Working with SQL Data
  • Portable SQL
  • And more...

Whether you're new to Alpha or a seasoned developer, this guide has something for everyone. Download the guide today!

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.
