Hi,

There are other products like apian that do a lot better. Also no or low code. However if you really need something special stick with wx .

Or go to outsystems or Mendix ( No or low code platforms , if you can spare a bug )

regards
Allard

Dear "Dutch Developer",

"read my lips": there's is no RAD on the market which produces high quality applications without additional coding / testing / documentation / quality control and maintenance. Full stop. Boils down to the old saying: there's no such thing like a free lunch!

I have several Wx-customers who are using / selling MS Dynamics - but with WINDEV / WINDEV Mobile and even WEBDEV add-ons. If such a RAD would make those add-ons in a snap, believe me, they'd use that MS RAD.

The claim of many RADs is to produce full-blown applications, ready to deploy. In the best cases RAD (e.g. PC Soft's RAD 11) can go as far as to make a somehow running application, but not farer than that. It may suffice for the need of a quick and dirty application. We can adapt up to three RAD11-windows per day. I tweaked the MDL files, translated them to German and I made a cook-book where one can check all of the needed add-ons and adaptions to each type of window. But: there's is still a lot of code to be added.

Hi Allard, Mendix .. they're starting at 1875,- Euro ... not per year, that would be too easy ... it's per MONTH! and it goes up to 7.825,- / MONTH. That's something ...
