This commercial session will present tools with which users can create sophisticated documents for data merging, manage appointments and large projects, produce PDF/A documents for long-term archiving, create rich HTML mail-shots, create user customised invoices and much more.
The presentation focuses on Brainy Data’s five main products, OWrite, PDFDevice, OSpell2, OGantt and OCal. OWrite looks and behaves like a word processor allowing end-users to feel right at home, but was specifically designed with Omnis data in mind. Its specialised features coupled with its word-processing capabilities make OWrite an indispensable tool, providing end users with an easy-to-use powerful interface for managing the appearance of their documents, and providing developers with the programmability to truly control every aspect of ad-hoc reporting and related automated processes. PDFDevice has been highly optimised for speed and is preferred by many Omnis developers as the tool for producing PDF files from Omnis. It is ideally suited for converting OWrite documents into professional looking PDF documents complete with document outline tress based on OWrite heading styles. OSpell2 is the only way to add check-as-you-type spellchecking to your Omnis application. For those interested in appointment scheduling, project management or booking systems, the OGantt and OCal presentation will show how easy it is to add a graphical interactive interface to your application that is not just intuitive but also very fast. All desktop client tools are written in c++ for ultimate performance.
