Stored procedures
A project is a logical set of elements and processes whose purpose is to accomplish a given objective. The project manages:
  • the relationships between elements (windows, reports, etc.).
  • the relationships between elements and data files (described in the analysis linked to the project).
A project can be linked:
  • to a single analysis, which contains a description of all the data files used by the project.
  • to multiple analyses.
The same analysis can be associated with several projects.
How to?

Creating a WINDEV Mobile project

To create a WINDEV Mobile project:
  1. Start the project creation wizard via one of the following options:
    • Click in the quick access buttons. In the window that appears, click "Project". The project creation wizard starts. Choose the type of project to create.
    • In the WINDEV Mobile home page, click "Create a project" and choose the type of project you want to create.
  2. For an "Android/iOS application" project:
    • Indicate whether the application should be cross-platform, Android only or iOS only.
    • Indicate which type of devices the project is intended for: phone and/or tablet.
  3. Select the desired style book. This style book will be available by default when creating a window or report, and will be applied to all new controls. This option can be modified in the project description window ("Style" tab).
  4. Specify the project name and location. These options cannot be modified. The project corresponds to a ".WPP" file for WINDEV Mobile. This file can be opened by WEBDEV and WINDEV. For more details, see Common project.
    All the objects associated with the project will be created in the specified directory.
  5. Finish the wizard. The new project is opened in the editor. It contains a specific configuration that corresponds to the type of project you created. You can edit this configuration or create a new one at any time. The same project can be associated with several project configurations. For more details, see Project configuration.
Remarks: The steps needed to create the project may vary depending on the type of project chosen.
Once a project has been created, you can:
  • change the project configuration options. For more details, see Project configuration.
  • associate one or more documents with the project. These documents can be text files, images, scanned documents, etc.. For more details, see Associating documents with the project.
  • associate one or more analyses with the project. For more details, see Project analysis.
  • integrate the project into the Source Code Manager (SCM). The Source Code Manager simplifies teamwork, but can also be helpful for individual work.
  • define a code style. The code style is a programming standard that can be applied across the entire application. This standard is used to prefix the different project elements, variables, etc. For more details, see Code style.
  • specify the languages supported by the project. These languages will be available by default when translating text from an element (control, window, page report, etc.). For more details, see Multilingual project.

The project file

The project corresponds to a ".WPP" file in WINDEV Mobile. This file contains:
  • The initialization code of the project, run when starting the project.
  • The list of linked objects (windows, reports, etc.). The sequence between these objects is viewed in the project editor.
  • The name of the first window opened (if it exists) when running the project or when running the project test.
  • The name of the analysis associated with the project (if if exists) and its password. The data files described in this analysis can be handled by the project elements (windows, reports, etc.).
  • The name of the UML model associated with the project (if it exists).
  • The style sheet associated with the project (if it exists). This style sheet contains all the styles used by the project elements.
  • The directory containing the list of tasks to perform on the current project.
  • The directory containing the data files (".FIC", ".MMO" and ".NDX" files) used when testing a project (on the "Project" tab, in the "Test mode" group, expand "Test mode" and select "Debug on").
  • The list of languages supported by the project and the main language of the project, used by default to view the project at runtime and in the editor.
Minimum version required
  • Version 10
