The upcoming 2010 release of the WebClient i+ platform will contain optional support for advanced Dojo controls such as the TreeView and FlexGrid components. The TreeView component is self-explanatory. The FlexGrid component is an advanced grid with the ability of adding columns dynamically, advanced font/display formatting, adding images to cells, and more (see the CA Plex Active pattern library documentation for a full description of capabilities). Adding Web generation support for your existing CA Plex applications with TreeViews and FlexGrids will be simple in most cases – just add inheritance and off you go – no code or panel changes required.

Here is a screen print of the new components:

Here is an example of the steps you will go through to implement in the Business Fundamentals sample model.

First, add WebClient inheritance

Second, generate and build as normal.

Final result in a browser. Yes, it is that easy.
