New Styles: iOS7 and Android

 

With this update comes three beautiful new styles for iOS7 and Android. These new styles feature the sleek, modern design that mobile users have come to expect—plus support for CSS icons! (More info on using CSS icons below.)

 

Cross-Domain Ajax Callbacks

 

A cross-domain Ajax callback is a callback that takes places to a server that is in a different domain than the domain from which the component was loaded. Now Alpha Anywhere features support for cross-domain Ajax callbacks, facilitating the retrieval of data from third-party services.

Built in cURL Support

 

cURL is a popular library for calling URLs. This new capability facilitates the use of cURL commands on the server, making it easy to leverage a popular library for accessing files using URL syntax.

 

CSS Icons (Icon Fonts)

 

Icon fonts have become very popular—especially for mobile applications—because they scale smoothly, and are smaller than bitmaps. Support for CSS icon fonts is now tightly integrated into Alpha Anywhere, with the Font Awesome icon library—a popular open-source icon font library—pre-installed! Plus, downloading 3rd party CSS icon font libraries is incredibly easy.

Pre-Defined 'Split-View' Quick Start Templates

 

A common pattern in mobile apps is the 'split-view' which shows a menu on the left and a work area on the right. On a phone, the menu is hidden and only shown on demand, but on a tablet, the menu is always shown. Now, with Alpha Anywhere, you can simply select a pre-defined split-view quick start template to automatically generate the outline—complete with CSS icons—of a stunning menu for your mobile apps!

Security Framework: Automated SQL Databases

 

The Web Application Security framework allows you to store the account information for the users and groups in your security framework in either .dbf tables or a SQL database. Previously, configuring the Web Security Framework to use SQL tables was a manual process, but now a new genie makes it easy for you switch a previously configured Security Framework from .dbf tables to SQL tables without losing any of your data.

 

Internationalization

 

This build features enhancements to automate support of internationalized versions of applications through the Internationalization Helper.
