STD FrameWork - New for Appeon InfoMaker!

** Hot News **

New InfoMaker Framework

Part I - Reusable Functions


    Software Tool & Die Inc. are pleased to announce today a new extension of their Integrated Framework that has been developed for the latest Appeon InfoMaker 2017R2 release (build 1769). The first phase of the new STD InfoMaker Framework is a set of reusable functions that can be used in any Report or Form object where expressions are used to obtain, format, validate, derive, compute, etc various datum values.

New STD InfoMaker Framework - Function list

         The initial InfoMaker framework includes a library of reusable functions. These functions can perform a variety of value-added services to any InfoMaker set of Report or Form objects. The Functions are well documented internally. You can add these to your InfoMaker product by amending the IM libray list to include the "STD_FC_IM_Functions.pbl". This will immediately give you access to these global functions.

Step#1 - Select the Library List in the InfoMaker IDE

Step#2 - Add the STD InfoMaker Framework's library to your project


 Note: All the STD frameworks are free and can be downloaded from its STD Foundation Classes SourceForge project website. The new InfoMaker framework can be downloaded from here.

 In the near future, Software Tool & Die will also be adding more functions and another new area called Style Sheet Ancestors to this framework.

Enjoy!

Regards ... Chris
