Start with the “Basics”

The Omnis “Basics” course helps you get started with Omnis Studio, quickly and easily – you will learn the HTML File structure required to build your JavaScript Web & Mobile apps, and the remote classes you will need (forms and tasks). During the 90 minute online course you can work through the steps needed, or you can just sit back and watch our expert trainers – you will create an example JavaScript Remote Form, containing different UI components, supporting different screen resolutions, suitable for display on Web or Mobile devices – all from one code base created in Omnis Studio 10. Other areas covered in the “Basics” course include: handling events, sending messages, client executed methods, and using CSS & themes. The Basics course is being held on the following dates:

  • October 6 – English 4:00 pm EDT
  • 13 October – Deutsch 10.30 Uhr, English 3:00pm CEST
