Front calls (experimental!)

Experimental standard front call functions provide utility APIs to control the Genero Desktop Client front-end.

This table shows only those standard front call functions implemented by the Genero Desktop Client as experimental.

Important:
Experimental features are available in the product, but:
  • They are likely to be changed in future versions, or even simply removed from the product.
  • They are not supported. Four Js will not be able to fix all reported issues. This is frequently due to current technical limitations.
  • They may not work 100%, not on all platforms, and likely not with all Front-Ends.

All non-experimental front call functions for the Genero Desktop Client can be found in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
