Responsive Layout Genie

 

Quickly and easily build Responsive Web Apps that run on a single codebase. Using the Responsive Layout Genie, your web and mobile apps will automatically adjust to the screen size, window size, and orientation differences of the various devices your users are accessing them from.

AbsoluteLayout Container

 

Alpha Anywhere developers can now place controls at absolute positions on the screen using an astoundingly simple WYSIWYG drag-and-drop interface. Especially useful for creating complex forms using an image as the background.

Absolute Positioning of Objects in Reports

 

After an extremely positive response to the pre-release of the AbsoluteLayout Container, we've added absolute positioning of objects in reports. Layout Table reports now offer the ability to use an image of a form as the report background and to then position the report fields directly over the 'fields' on the background image.

Custom Styling: Radiobutton and Checkbox Controls

 

The standard way in which browsers render checkbox and radiobutton controls is pretty drab. Now, in Alpha Anywhere, the UX component allows you to apply a rich set of styling options to radiobutton and checkbox controls.

Printing QR Codes

 

Layout Table Reports now support printing any cell in the Layout Table that contains a text value as a QR code. To print the contents of a cell as q QR code, simply check the 'Display QRCode for text in cell' property at the bottom of the 'Cell Contents' dialog box.

Displaying QR Codes on a UX Component

 

A common requirement, especially in mobile applications, is to display data encoded as a QR code. Now, Alpha Anywhere makes it easy. QR codes can now be shown on a UX component using both client-side and server-side techniques.

New Mobile Theme: Slate

Xbasic Update: Working with XML Documents

 

Alpha's own server-side language Xbasic has always had a powerful XML parser, but the new *property_from_xml() function and the new XML document viewer make it ever easier to work with XML documents.
