jsExecute Custom Widget

Hi everyone.

Here’s another custom widget that I’ve created. This one lets you execute ad hoc Javascript in a Tulip app.

I’ve written a blog post to help describe what the widget does, and to provide examples of how you might use it. As I mention in the post, “My goal with the jsExecute widget is to be able to create Tulip apps that tap into the power of Javascript, and to do so without needing to create a large number of custom widgets.”

The blog post is here:

The widget can be downloaded here:

Let me know if you have any questions.





This is so cool…

Makes me want to try to run a python shell and IDE in a custom widget…

Its funny to think this feature was originated around customers who wanted to format buttons to match their brand…

That is funny!

What I find interesting about this particular widget is how simple and “meta” it is. There really isn’t much to it, and yet it opens up a lot of possibilities.

What I like most about it is that we can tap into the power of custom widgets (Javascript, really) without having to create tons of them.
