TMS WEB Core landed


Thursday, January 11, 2024

TMS Software Delphi  Components

We are thrilled to announce the latest update to our product, TMS WEB Core! In version, we've added several exciting new features and improvements that will enhance your web application development experience. Whether you're a seasoned developer or just getting started, these additions are designed to make your life easier and your projects more powerful. Let's take a closer look at what's new:

Center Property

We've introduced a new 'Center' property for TWebCustomControl, which allows you to easily center your controls within their parent containers. This feature simplifies the process of aligning and positioning controls, making your user interface design more intuitive. Horizontal and vertical center alignment can be set. It was introduced in the base class and we have exposed this for container controls where it makes most sense like TWebPanel, TWebHTMLDiv, TWebHTMLSpan, TWebHTMLContainer, ...


TMS Software Delphi  Components

TMS WEB Core now includes TWebLeafletMaps, a powerful mapping component that enables you to integrate interactive maps into your web applications. Whether you need to display locations, track routes, or provide directions, TWebLeafletMaps has you covered. TWebLeafletMaps uses the free Leaflet JavaScript library that in turn uses the free OpenStreetMaps tile servers. So, this offers you mapping functionality that is completely free.

GPXToCoordinates Function

We've added a new function, GPXToCoordinates, which allows you to convert GPX (GPS Exchange Format) data into polyline coordinates. This feature is especially handy for applications that involve GPS data processing, such as fitness trackers or location-based services. Just add the XML GPX contents as string and this function returns the array of coordinates. This makes it possible to visualize a GPX track in just a couple of lines of code.

  s: string;
  ja: TJSArray;
  s := await(string, WebClientDataset1.ReadBlobAsText('GPXBlob'));
  ja := GPXToCoordinates(s);

ElementHandle property for TWebFrame

TWebFrame now includes a public property called 'ElementHandle.' This enhancement provides greater flexibility and control when working with frames, allowing you to manipulate their content more effectively.

Stream any TObject to JSON and Vice Versa

To simplify data serialization, we've introduced a class helper that enables you to effortlessly stream TObject to JSON and vice versa. This feature streamlines data interchange and makes it easier to work with structured data in your web applications. This way, you can directly map JSON received from a REST API server to an object in your app.


  MyObject: TMyObject;
  js: JSValue;

  MyObject := TMyObject.Create;
  MyObject.Text := 'Hello world';
  MyObject.Number := 1234;
  MyObject.Birthday := EncodeDate(2024,1,11);
  MyObject.Employer := false;
  MyObject.Completion := 12.34;
  MyObject.SubProp.Caption := 'Caption';
  MyObject.SubProp.Tag := 69;
  js := MyObject.ToJSON;

Inspecting this in the browser console, the result is:

TWebDBComboBox ListSync Property

The ListSync property added to TWebDBComboBox is a convenient addition when working with the DB-aware combobox. It ensures that the ListSource dataset automatically updates its active record when the combobox selection changes. This feature simplifies data synchronization and improves user interactions. Numerous smaller enhancements & fixes

As a result of intense interaction with so many TMS WEB Core users over the past months, this release comes also with many smaller improvements & fixes. See the full version history for details.

The class helped for TObject and the leaflet maps are two excellent additions among so many great things about the product.

Nice work!

Great new features! Is there an example of how to get json-to-object?

This is a JSON object created in an asm block that can be used to load an Object Pascal from:

js: JSValue;

js = {"Text":"New text", "Number":5678, "Birthday":"2024-07-25T00:00:00","Employer":true,"Completion":56.78,"SubProp":{"Caption":"Test","Tag":123}};
