Front-End function calls

The language allows to execute specific functions on the front-end platform.

A set of built-in front calls is available in Genero front-ends, to execute a specific task on the platform where the front-end executes.

In order to perform a front call, use the ui.Interface.frontCall() method. For example, when using a mobile front-end, you can instruct the mobile device to take a picture and return the identifier of the asset containing the image:

CALL ui.Interface.frontCall( "mobile", "takePhoto", [], [path] )

For a complete list of available front calls, see Built-in front calls.
