DataFlex 2023 Beta 1 release features new Web Grid Layout, improved Web List, Studio Icons

April 5, 2023

DataFlex 2023 Beta 1 has been released for developer testing and previewing of the new features added to this latest build!

DataFlex 2023 extends the DataFlex ecosystem by providing exciting new ways to build Windows user interfaces and much more natural ways to execute SQL statements.

Along with incremental bug fixes and continued improvements to the Alpha 2 release, the Beta 1 build also includes:

  • WebList Grouping: The cWebList class now supports grouping of data. When enabled, the user can configure the groups via the context menu on the header of the list.
  • Web Grid Layout: The grid layout is a new layout system now available for web applications. It provides more control over the vertical positioning of your controls. It is based on the CSS grid layout.
  • Better Studio Icons for High DPI Screens: The icons now contain larger sizes for high DPI screens. This especially shows when running the studio at 200% or higher.

In addition to these new features delivered in the Beta 1 build, DataFlex 2023 also introduces FlexTron which brings Web views and controls into Windows applications for a more modern look and feel, or for just adding Web features to more mature Windows applications.

Forward-looking developers who seek to get an early preview of what’s coming in the next release of DataFlex are encouraged to download and install the Beta 1 build of DataFlex 2023 and join the testing community!
