Hello Cabinetman

I must be getting old. There is nothing in the new release that I need and it was the same for V23.
I have never gotten around to re-compiling any of my projects from V22 to V23.
I think part of it is that based on past experience, I just don't expect many of the shiny new gizmos to work as advertised until the next couple of releases so what is the point in getting excited about them ?
It looks like V24 will just be an exercise in updating to stay current.

By the way, I defy anyone to make sense of the information on the top segment of page 17/92 of the simple brochure, not to mention the strange coding in the "Existing Code" panel

I am resisting making any comment regarding the equal opportunity inclusion of a single muscleman picture.

Hi Al,

the key to using the same code for a dynamic web site as that of a WD desktop application is to split code from GUI. Whether this would help in regards of speed and conversion time, I don't know. I did not and will not put this function ever to a test in real life but maybe, it could be of some help for those poor guys who have to convert a huge WD legacy application into a web site. We have customers with analysises containing 1600 to 2000 files and running HFSQL C/S. I doubt that such WD applications could be converted to web within a few days but a restart from zero seems not so clever too.

Kind regards,
Guenter Predl

Hi Al

Still no spreadsheet control for WebDev thumbs down Been waiting for this since WX16. They are so far behind the bus on this one. They really need to get this sorted out. Not one navigable grid control for the web. Unless I have missed something.
