Grid Templates
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Introducing the Grid Builder/Grid Templates.xml
Whenever you create a new grid component in Alpha Anywhere, the Grid Templates Genie pops up, which lets you select one of several pre-defined templates or a template from your own library of templates.Templates can be a great time saver because you can pre-set a multitude of properties whenever you create a new component. This [video] demonstrates how you can use existing templates, and how you can define your own templates.
Sets - Linking on Multiple Fields
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/Set/Sets Linking on Multiple Fields.xml
When you create a set, Alpha Anywhere allows you to specify that the link is based on multiple field. Originally you could only base the link on a single field, or an expression. However, if you based the link on an expression (e.g. alltrim(lastname) + alltrim(firstname)), you could not enter new records because Alpha Anywhere had no way of knowing how to decode the expression to fill in the individual linking fields.
Custom and User-Defined Custom Components
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Custom/index.xml
A Custom Component or User-defined Custom Component is a way to create a component for reuse. Like Grid or UX Components, custom components are configured using a Component Builder and can be invoked using Action Javascript. Custom Components are an advanced feature for building web and desktop interfaces. Custom Components are not recommended for use in mobile applications.
