Also, Be sure to check out the various example workspaces that illustrate some of the latest changes and additions...
Order Entry Tab - The Order view demonstrates that not setting piMaxSize will allow the view to stretch to full size. Some of the fundamental behaviors of scrolling views has changed and the Alpha 2 Build Notes | Scrolling and Tab Workspaces section of the Help contains all the details.
Web Order - The Demo menu has been reorganized to make it easier to find the various examples (there is a lot of great stuff in this example of which developers may not be aware. In particular, check out the Restful JSON Service view. If you havent yet looked into the full set of JSON improvements in DataFlex 19.0 be sure to read the section on JSON Parsing and Transfer.
Web Order Mobile - Alpha 2 marks the debut of swiping support in lists! The Select Customer list now allows you to swipe right for access to the Customer Zoom and swipe left for access to list Customer Orders or delete. Another great new feature is the ability for grids to turn off scrolling with pbScroll, which loads the complete data set and turns on column sorting. You can see this new feature at work in the Order Zoom view. See more information about Web Framework changes in the Whats New.
