Functions for working with web applications, web application security, web components, and the Alpha Anywhere Standard Application Server.
- Application Overview
In Alpha Anywhere, the term application, refers to a collection of layouts and operations linked together in such a way that a set of tasks can be performed without using the Control Panel. An Application may make use of Alpha Anywhere's Xbasic programming language to fully customize the way the Application works. However, many quite effective Applications can be designed without using any Xbasic at all. Applications are often designed as a data management solution for use by people who have little experience with Alpha Anywhere.
For example, you already use Alpha Anywhere to help manage your mail-order business. You have created ten layouts that collectively let you enter and print invoices, keep track of inventory, maintain a mailing list, and write thank you notes to your big-ticket customers.

- Web Application Functions
/documentation/pages/Ref/Api/Functions/Web/Web Application/Application Functions/index.xml
Alpha Anywhere provides the following functions for working with web applications.
- Method for opening UX in a PhoneGap or Static HTML application
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Props/other/Optimization (PhoneGap-Static HTML)/Method for opening UX in a PhoneGap or Static HTML application.xml
Normally, this component is opened
by making an Ajax callback to the server. In a mobile PhoneGap application, or a static HTML application, the device might not have a connection to the server and so making an Ajax callback is not possible. In this case you can render a pre-computed version of the target UX component.
- Server-side Events
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/TabbedUI/Server-side Events/index.xml
Server-side events for the Tabbed UI Component.
