WinDev Applications to the Cloud

Did you know that you can integrate any WinDev application with Thinfinity VirtualUI, and publish it on the Web or Cloud in no time?

If you are a WinDev developer or inherit a WinDev application, you don’t have to migrate your project to a new language in order to make it cloud compatible. Using Thinfinity VirtualUI you can roll your Windows-based app to the web. Thus, your users will be able to access it from any device by just following a few simple steps:

NOTE: For this example, we will be using WinDev 22 Express and the “WD Countries of the World” example that comes with it.

1) Open the “WD Countries of the World” example on WinDev 22 Express.

2) On the “Project explorer”, open the “Windows” menu, right-click on WIN_Country, and left-click on “Code”:

3) In the “Global declarations of WIN_Country”, you have to add the following lines:
m_VirtualUI is dynamic Automation object = Null
IF m_VirtualUI = Null THEN
m_VirtualUI = new object Automation “Thinfinity.VirtualUI”
Make sure that these are the first lines on the “Global declarations” section, as shown below:
