To create a new mobile or web application with Alpha Anywhere, you must create a new workspace. A workspace contains all files your application needs, including files such as components, javascript libraries, images, HTML pages, .a5w pages, and css style sheets. Let's create a new, blank Alpha Anywhere workspace.

  1. Launch Alpha Anywhere. Under the File menu, select New Workspace... to create a new Alpha Anywhere project.

    Create a New Workspace from the File menu.
  2. Enter a name for your new workspace.

    Name your workspace.
  3. If the Startup Control Panel appears, check the box for Open the Web Control Panel when this Workspace is opened if you plan to use this workspace to create a Web or Mobile application. The Web Control Panel is where all of the resources for a web or mobile application are listed. Click OK to finish creating your new workspace.

    Specifying the Web Control Panel should be opened when the Workspace is opened.

Now that you have created a workspace, you can start building your application.
