Front call support

Genero Mobile provides front calls to interface with the device capabilities.

Use front calls to access mobile devices capabilities. For example, with the mobile/takePhoto front call, you can open the camera app of the device to take a picture.

Note: In a classical Genero client/server configuration, a front call is a remote procedure call that involves a round-trip between the front-end and the server where the application executes. For a standalone mobile app, this does not cause any latency. For a server-side app (using the runOnServer front call), however, latency can result.

The details for each front call can be found in Built-in front calls summary.
