TMS RADical WEB, technology preview update


Thursday, March 8, 2018

We’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of many users about the news of TMS WEB Core and also the many reactions, feedback, comments of users who immediately got their hands wet with the technology preview.

From all feedback received combined with our internal planning, we’re pleased to inform that there is now a technology preview update available that brings not only many small improvements but also some exciting new features!

The highlight of the technology preview update is the introduction of the jQWidgets jQxGrid UI control. This control can now be easily used from your Pascal code from a TMS WEB Core application. jQxGrid is a high performance jQuery grid with paging, sorting, grouping, editing & filtering capabilities. It also features different column types.

If you get TMS WEB Core 0.9.2 you can start playing with the new grid right-away or you can explore the grid via the online demo.

Second new big feature is that now data-modules, i.e. the TWebDataModule, are also available. The same easy-to-use centralized place for databinding & business logic that we are used to in Delphi VCL or FMX applications is now also available in TMS WEB Core applications.

Also new is a Twitter feed display component. Showing your personal or company Twitter feed integrated in your web application is now as easy as dropping a component and setting your feed name.

We’ve also made it easier to use cookies and query parameters directly from your Pascal code. Getting or settings cookie values is now very easy. You can use code like:

Cookies.Add(‘CompanyNameCookie’,’tmssoftware’, Now + 5000);
Cookies.Add(‘UserNameCookie’,’Bruno Fierens’, Now + 5000);
And there is more!
The IDE integration was also improved with built-in automatic listing of CSS style classnames or HTML element IDs, so you can pick directly from the Object Inspector what CSS style from your HTML template you want to assign to a control or to what HTML element you want to link a control.

Other than this there are numerous smaller improvements in aligning, splitter, Google Maps geolocation, Google maps route display, …

We’ll keep you posted with more updates as we continue to execute the planning and we look forward to hear all your feedback!

Get started today: Technical previews of TMS WEB Core, TMS FNC UI web-enabled controls, web-enabled TMS XData, the first parts under the TMS RADical WEB umbrella are exclusively available now for all active TMS-ALL-ACCESS customers.

Again, very nice - I can see some internal projects using this Real Soon Now...

Just FYI, I''m not sure if this is an issue/constraint in jQGrid or in TWebJQXgrid, but...

Paging and grouping together not-functional:

Check "grouping"
Group by Brand
Check Paging

Grid goes blank

Removing the group and toggling between single and multiple row selection restores the grid data

Hi Bruno,

When do you think that Radical Web will cover the whole jQWidgets components ?

That is really hard to predict. It will take at least a couple of more months.
