Easy to use
With a simple interface loaded with hints and tips to inform you of how everything works, creating the app you want using Rapid is quick and effective
Drag and drop interface
The Rapid Designer has an extremely creative and simple to work around drag and drop interface. Adding controls and moving them around the page could not be easier
Extensive controls and events
The Rapid Designer offers a vast range of controls, including classics such as input boxes, drop-downs, checkboxes and tables. Each control has a number of ‘events’, such as clicks, mouse overs, changes, etc. These events can then have ‘actions’ applied to them, such as navigation, validation, data copying, databases and webservices
With the tools available, it is possible to completely stylise your whole Rapid app. With a little CSS each of your apps can be fully personalised and can provide a unique experience for users
The Rapid Designer will notify you to save your page in the event a change was made if you attempt to leave the page in any way. This feature avoids data loss and improves time management
Take Rapid to the next level with advanced skills!
Rapid’s unique and adaptable functionality allows the more advanced, technical programmers to extend, adapt and really explore the offerings of the Rapid tool.
If you’re feeling confident with your skills or are highly versed in the arts of programming, you can take your apps to the next level of personalisation! With access to the back-end it is possible to create your own actions, events and even controls! If you’re not one to shy away from a challenge, you can also create security adaptors for use with user groups from third party databases.
With access to the back-end, it is possible to create bespoke actions, events and even controls! Actions and events in Rapid can manipulate the back-end code in Java, and there is virtually no limit to what can be done, other than your own coding knowledge cap. Controls are more focused on manipulating the front-end of Rapid and are slightly more limited. They are written in XML, and the same applies for limits and coding knowledge
Third party integration
Webservices can be created using SOAP, restful XML or JSON, using SQL or Java classes! These are available for both your applications and third party utilities, making Rapid a great platform for cross-communication
Security adaptors and databases
Rapid has security adaptors that can limit who can access different areas of your app, or the app as a whole. The security adaptor can also be used to get users and roles from third party databases or active directory, giving an extra level of data authentication for your apps
