This section presents several advanced features. You don't necessarily have to read it but it will allow you to discover some advanced features proposed by WINDEV.
The different lessons found in this section are based on examples supplied with WINDEV.
WINDEV proposes different types of examples:
  • complete examples: these examples correspond to a full application that is using one or more features.
  • training examples: these examples correspond to a small application used to discover a feature.
  • unit examples: these examples correspond to a window used to quickly check the use of function.

Practical example

To simplify the presentation of different features, we will be using unit examples or training examples supplied with WINDEV.
  • To open a complete example, a training example or a unit example from the WINDEV home page:
    1. Display the home page (Ctrl + <).
    2. On the home page, click "Open an example". The list of complete examples, training examples and unit examples supplied with WINDEV is displayed. These examples are grouped by type of example (complete, training, ...).
    3. You can enter a keyword in the search area (for example, enter "Errors"). Only the examples containing this word are listed.
      Examples in the home page
      The icons to the right of the example name indicate the platform for which the example has been created.
      Remark: The buttons to the right of the search area allow you to filter the examples according to the desired platform(s).
    4. To open an example, double-click the example name.
    5. For the complete and training examples, the current project is automatically closed and the sample project is opened.
    6. For the unit examples, the associated window is opened in the current project.
Remark: If you modify a full example or a training example, the next time you open it, WINDEV will automatically ask you which version of the example you want to work on:
  • your modified version. In this case, you will find all your modifications.
  • the original version of the example: In this case, the modified version is deleted and you get all the features of the original example.
