In the Design
module, you will create and edit the
layouts of your portals. Intrexx layouts are based completely on
Cascading Style Sheets. The entire design is therefore represented by
CSS positioning that makes a quick page construction and an optimal
searchability for search engines possible without the use of frames.
Through the use of caching mechanisms, combining many
individually loaded files into a few larger ones, as well as the
performance is possible. Barrier-free pages can also be constructed.
When developing applications for mobile devices, specific
requirements apply to the underlying platform: in addition to the
minimal bandwidth of connections and the insufficient, and in some cases completely
interactive forms) by some devices, special requirements such as the sliding effects for the iPhone
must be taken into account.
The support for mobile end devices is based on the following three
- Design and design selection corresponding to the end device
- Arrangement and layout of applications
- Construction of the menu
Design and design selection
Every end device supports a specific range of options that are
restricted by the bandwidth of the connection, the abilities of the
installed browser, the device software and the device itself. While the
iPhone from Apple offers the greatest degree of functionality, devices like the
Blackberry end devices of the previous generation offer no support for
In the Design
module, you can define which end
devices should be supported by each layout and whether the end
provides the desired layout corresponding to the identification of the
Arrangement and layout of applications
The transformation of an application page for a mobile end device
automatically ensures that no layout is used for the
page that is based on tables; rather, a page will be generated that is
completely based on CSS and pure HTML. The designer of the
application requires no special knowledge of CSS here. One must
only take into account that the page has to be sufficiently small to be
displayable on the end device.
Construction of the menu
In Intrexx, individual menus for each layout can be created; these can be customized for the special requirements of
mobile end devices.
This means, for example, that applications can be offered exclusively
for the iPhone, while other applications will be implemented for all
mobile end devices. The start page of an application, specially
adjusted to the end device, can also now be defined by editing the
menu. The same application can be placed in the menu as many
times and in as many places as you wish.
