Nothing unusual about the fact that it is taking unusually long to finish the latest (and probably last) @Midas Formulas beta. Development always takes longer than I expect. In any case, I decided to put up a demo so that those long suffering beta testers (and the rest of you) can have something solid to look at rather than just listen to me blab on about it. As I have mentioned before, developing with @Midas feels quite different than developing with the Midas Rich Text LSX. In fact, the on-line demo I have added is the one hinted at back in November in my post @Midas demos feel quite different. @Midas A La Carte is an odd little demo in which you create your own menu and @Midas has two jobs. The first is to generate HTML from the rows selected and put it together in a new table. The second is to do lookups on the price tables to determine the price of each selected item, then accumulate those for a total price. (The actual code is available from the Help Using document on the web, but it is packed together and a bit tough to read).
So, why does this feel odd? Why is this different than a Midas Rich Text LSX demo?
So, try out the @Midas A La Carte demo. Let me know what you think. Is it clear what is happening? Do you have any trouble in different browsers? Would you like to join the beta and try creating this sort of application to explore its uses? Let me know what you think, as I'm starved for feedback after such a long development cycle.
