Q & A:
Q: In ScreenBuilder, can we use our own images for the icons?
A: Not in the screen builder. But once screen builder has created the screen, the app can be opened in AppBuilder and code can be customized or tweaked according to your needs. Screen Builder gives you a jump start with scaffolding the screen.
Q: How much can we configure the item template in Data List view?
A: You can create your own custom template for the list view items in AppBuilder. The Screen Builder just creates a basic scaffolding of the list view and its items. You can then take over and customize the code in AppBuilder.
Q: For the connection between Telerik mBaaS and Data Link Server, is it via a certain port number only?
A: Nope. Telerik mBaaS needs a IP or domain which can be pinged from Internet. In the demo we ran our Data Link Server on a port # and exposed that to outside world.
Q: How testing is done in Telerik Platform?
Q: Can i use your platform to build the complete app with database support on your platform itself?
A: Yes, you can. In this scenario you will be utilizing our Backend Service for database & AppBuilder Service which is nothing but a IDE for developing Hybrid Mobile App.
Q: Can we connect this with Line of Business applications like SharePoint, CRM , SAP?
A: Yes you can. At the moment you will need to work with the REST API that the business applications provide. Sonn, over the course of the time, we will be adding Data Connector capability out of the box to many enterprise stores. Stay tuned.
Q: Is there a restriction in programming language used during mobileapp development?
A: Yes, we use HTML 5, JS and CSS for development of mobile apps – hybrid or native.
