Thread: Canvas Layout

  1. #1

    Canvas Layout

    I figured I would play around and see what I came up with on the Canvas side of the world.
    I think with the addition of the Gridtree - you can do pretty much everything you can think of in Canvas.
    My wish list would be a toolbox and some sort of container object - but that might not be feasible.

    Hi Herb,


    There will be additional components added to the Canvas section after v1.0.

    The big difference between a Custom section and a Canvas section is that the Lianja engine understands the hierarchy of objects in a Canvas section as they are all registered in the LOM.

    What this means is that delegates can be dispatched on any device.

    So the Cloud/Mobile HTML5/JavaScript Clients will include Canvas sections after I have all the standard sections working to my satisfaction. (I'm doing that now for Mobile in fact).

    Whatever type of section you use you can call server-side code written in VFP and this is handled by the clients.

    So for example if your validation is written in VFP and you specify it like this:


    then this is evaluated on the server substituting {} with the current value in the control.

    JavaScript libraries are loaded into the client so no round trip is required.
