New Knowledge Base launched

Visual WebGui revealed yesterday its allnew resource center. The new Knowledge Base seems like a huge leap forward in terms of the user experience for supporting developers and a much easier access to relevant resources as the new system incorporates all of the Visual WebGui resources in one place back up by an advanced interface (search and filter mechanism) to ease on finding relevant information.

The new KB system presents some important new features and capabilities such as:

* Better and more diversed categorization and filtering options
* Easy search
* On the fly filtering for search results
* Contributors recognition
* and more

Visual WebGui also promises to continuously improve the Knowledge Base by adding more features and upgrading the overall user experience and allow developers to find all the essential information needed for creating VWG apps according to best practices.

The new Knowledge Base is located here:


I would like to present a showcase where there was a need for an enhanced web based solution with a user interface (UI) similar to the previous desktop solution UI. The new solution was needed as a replacement of the desktop client-based solution of a Software Vendor.

The developer, Luca Morelli, evaluated various Ajax frameworks for this project such as the ASP.NET Ajax Control Toolkit and Gaia Ajax for ASP.NET but decided to go with Visual WebGui because it could provide a desktop-like user experience and allowed to implementing additional functionalities over the original solution with ease and reduce the learning time for the user.

The solution needed to be migrated to web was a VB content management with parametric document layout and workflow definition for small medium companies that need to organize the approval of internal documents.
The application should provide each customer with a customized type of documents, types of data, fields (with data coming generally from external programs) and set of rules. It should also allow configuring roles and workflows that are not very complex but unique for each of them, so there was a need for a solution that would allow configuration capabilities of the system to create and import documents based on their need and approve with their rules.
