Mobile View Management

06 Nov 2018
10:30 - 11:30
Reitallee

One of the biggest challenges facing developers of mobile applications in Delphi is how best to manage multiple views. The TTabControl provides the basic mechanics of switching between views, and a common approach is to simply define each view on a page of the tab control. However, it is impractical to put all controls for all views onto one form. Another approach is to use frames for each view, but frames do not display mobile styles, and more importantly, it is very easy for inline instances of frames to become out of sync with source frames. Furthermore, neither of these approaches offer any support for view navigation. In this session, a new approach is presented that simplifies view management, facilitates view navigation, and isolates view definitions.
