User-Defined Popup Help in Xdialog
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/User-Defined Popup Help in Xdialog.xml
The new a5_showPopupHelp() makes it very easy to put help buttons on an Xdialog that the user can click for additional help. The help can be defined using Xdialog or HTML. (See example in Learning Xdialog.)

HtmlHost Xdialog command
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/HtmlHost Xdialog command.xml
Similar to conditional expressions, enable/disable and show/hide expressions , a5:style allows the style of an htmlhost tag to be a calculated value.
MDI Xdialog Framework
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/MDI Xdialog Framework.xml
You can take advantage of a technique for creating MDI Xdialogs. Refer to the sample 'Learning Xdialog' database that ships with Alpha Anywhere and refer to the 'mdi_xdialog_frameworkV8' script. The main difference between the new technique, and the technique described here is that in the new technique, a 'context' is established and the menu and toolbar are instantiated in that 'context'. This is done in the Xdialog's OnInit event. It is no longer necessary to instantiate the menus and toolbars in the onactivate event and then destroy them in the ondeactivate event.

Embedded HTML in Xdialog
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Embedded HTML in Xdialog.xml
It is easy to embed HTML into Xdialog. You can simply use the {html}, or {htmlIE} command, rather than defining and placing the Internet Explorer ActiveX control in your Xdialog.
Xdialog Genie
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Xdialog Genie.xml
The Xdialog Genie is just one of many components of the much larger Action Script Genie. However, it is notable as tool that produces fully functional Xdialog boxes with embedded controls and table lookups. The Xdialog Genie produces reusable Xdialog code and is an excellent way to start any Xdialog project. Begin by selecting "Dialog Boxes" and "Display an XDialog Box".
