Hi,

I am looking for samples for the new WEB UI in the exe file ...

I got the PDF from my Alaska download area, but can't find any examples 
in the documents tree samples ...
I don't want to use <CXP> for a web page, just a HTML layout for my 
normal EXE.

I found code from the devcon in Isernhagen, but this code needs a 
missing dll:

#pragma library( "cxplocal10.lib" )

I can't compile that, "file not found ..."


Does someone have easy examples how this works ?

Gruß
Hubert

use this:

#pragma library( "xppwui.LIB" )

Hi,

I also got the PDF file "Using the Web UI in Xbase++ Desktop
Applications". But could not move ahead much.

Anybody can give a working sample of Combobox example with HTML and
CSS ?

Thanks in advance.


Regards
Kiron

Instead of struggling with non-standard technology, why not just create a 
real WebUI using industry standards (html, css, js) running in a standard 
web browser. It's easier than you think and it's exactly what we have 
done. Here is a small video showing one of our applications developed 
this way. The video quality is not so good, but the web UI can be seen 
around the 42 sec mark:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3jgtsxW1OA

Essentially, the Xbase++ application runs as a windows service with no 
UI. It uses the Xb2.NET library to make the Xbase++ application a web 
server. A standard web browser is used as the user interface.

Doing it this way gives you a few key advantages over the traditional 
windows application allowing you to leapfrog technologies, including:

* your one application becomes scalable. It can be used by one user or 
many. In order to do that with a desktop app, you would need to use 
windows terminal services.

* the application can be used inside your network or it can be exposed to 
the internet as a web server. 

* you can easily support mobile clients and different operating systems 
because web browsers are ubiquitous and supported on all modern 
platforms. How do you do that with a Windows desktop app?

I think you're missing the point of the WebUI.
Xbase++ offers you the possibility of creating an application skin using
industry standards (html, css), which I think has it's place and could be
very useful. It's cerntainly something I am going to check out.

I definitely do understand, however I also remember how much time I wasted 
many years ago trying to get the XbpHTMLViewer to work properly before 
finally giving up and converting everything to use the standard web browser 
(IE, Chrome, FireFox,...). The ordeal almost cost me a large client because 
the XbpHTMLViewer solution was just not reliable. I certainly would not 
wish to repeat that ordeal any time soon.

Sounds to me a bit like re-inventing the wheel..

"creating an application skin using industry standards (html, css)" == Web
browser

No, not quite.
There's a big difference between a web client and a Windows client in terms
of functionality and speed. Not to mention the interaction with the
application back-end.

hi,

Xbase++ v2.x can use HTMLayout*** Engine to render a XbPart
*** http://terrainformatica.com/htmlayout

HtmLayout is a "native" window class implementation and is distributed in 
binary form as native Windows DLL (dynamic load library). Just pure API 
calls, like in any other native Windows common controls. HtmLayout uses 
WM_NOTIFY mechanism for interacting with the host window.

The first thing I see by going to that page is:

"HTMLayout is not supported anymore, please use Sciter instead."
