Part 4 : Publishing events to the Workbook
Part 5 : Conditional execution of GenericAction

Download : Source code and sample database

Profitbase InVision is built using AngularJS (1.0 right now), so some experience with AngularJS is required for building plugins.

You can download the source code and sample database for this demo from the link above. I won’t talk about how I built the UI since there’s nothing InVision specific about it, it’s just standard HTML, CSS and AngularJS.

Debugging custom Data Flow Item Class Libaries

This is the fourth and final post in a series focused on Data Flow development.

Probably the most important tool used while developing software is the debugger. The debugger lets you step through your code and inspect the state of your program during runtime, so you can see what’s actually going on.

This post will focus on how to debug your custom class libraries while they are being executed by the Profitbase InVision Worker. For information on how to deploy your assembly (build and copy to target folders), you should read Part 1 of this series.
