Another interesting source of information is the replay of the recently held webinar with CTO Bruno Fierens walking through all new features of TMS WEB Core v2.0:

Meanwhile, our team is also hard at work to bring all new components, new features of TMS WEB Core for Delphi to TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code v2.0. You can expect this update also very soon!

If you are interested in web client development using Delphi, also have a look at the recent series of blogs from Andrew Simard that covers how to use external JavaScript libraries easily from TMS WEB Core. In the past weeks, Andrew covered how to integrate the impressive Tabulator JavaScript control in a TMS WEB Core project. The series starts here.

TMS WEB Core v2.0 couldn't have been created without all your valuable feedback in the past months and years! We are extremely thankful for all your help steering the development. And we continue to count on you driving further future developments of TMS WEB Core! We invite experienced TMS WEB Core developers having ideas for future developments and wanting to actively participate in discussing to a private TMS WEB Core panel group. Contact us by email with your motivation to participate and we'll consider your application.

Do you have any plans to make it possible to use the Aurelius framework on WebCore(Especially Aurelius dataset)?

Thank you for your great efforts. Can we expect TMS WEB Core 2.0 VSC soon?

New components and component enhancements are available also on DBcomponents (Dbgrids, etc) and in DB counterpart editor? Because we want to use Web datasets for Delphi desktop migrations and need DBcontrols and all related features for manage updates (cached) in a Delphi way, if we want to preserve DB logic for easy migration.
Otherwise is better to use Tabulator , like above, or other powerful external components.
I am glad that the product is getting better.
Good job

I''m eager to see all of the new features included. The simplified column sorting in grids looks like quite a time-saver, but it needs a way to specify the type of data in the column for proper sorting. I suggest having several common types built-in (eg, string, integer, float, currency), plus a "custom" type that requires an onCompare override.

JavaScript is already pretty smart in data type detection, but indeed, we''ll explore capabilities for finer control.
