The 'even' and 'odd' refer to the alternating colors. The number after each property indicates how many grid rows each color band encompasses. The default setting for both color bands is 1.
Web Grid Alternate Views
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Web Grid/Web Grid Alternate Views.xml
The tabular and columnar views of a grid can convey a lot of information, but the human eye is much more sensitive to shapes and colors than it is to variations text. With an alternate view of a grid, you can display the same information in a way that grabs the user. If it's geographic information, the best display might be a map. If it's scheduling information, the best display might be a calendar. Note that an Alternate view displays the same number of rows as its associated grid. This is in contrast to a Linked component or a component in a Row Expander, both of which display data linked to or contained in the current row. When using alternate views, it is important to understand that the alternate view and the main view are given the same data. If your grid has a filter, it will also apply to the alternate view. If your grid is displaying 10 records on a page, the alternate view will display the same 10 records. To enable Alternate Views, check "Has Alternate Views" in the grid properties.

Creating a Custom Control Starting with a ViewBox Control
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Data Controls/CustomControl/Creating a Custom Control Starting with a ViewBox Control.xml
The easiest way to create a new Custom Control is to start by creating a ViewBox control and then once you are satisfied with the ViewBox control copy the generated Javascript from the ViewBox builder to the Custom control.
Custom Components
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Custom/Custom Components.xml
In Version 11, Alpha Five has added two types of reusable web components that can be created by any developer with a good knowledge of Xbasic, HTML, and JavaScript. One type is the Custom Component, discussed in this article and those following. The other is the User-defined Component, which is both more flexible and harder to develop. We recommend starting by creating a Custom Component even if your ultimate goal is to develop a User-defined Component.
Custom and User-Defined Custom Components
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Custom/index.xml
A Custom Component or User-defined Custom Component is a way to create a component for reuse. Like Grid or UX Components, custom components are configured using a Component Builder and can be invoked using Action Javascript. Custom Components are an advanced feature for building web and desktop interfaces. Custom Components are not recommended for use in mobile applications.
Custom Chart Style Sheet
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/CSS/Custom Chart Style Sheet.xml
The chart styles can be customized beyond what is provided in the top level builder, CSS style class names coorespond to chart sections, for example the chart title font and color are set using a style class called 'chart-title'. Here is a complete list of the non-data related chart style class name. Data styling is done using series or data classes depending on the type of chart, and it is generally a good idea to use the genie to get close to the desired style before you start tweaking the style directly in CSS.
