Question

First of all , keep the good work.
I have a question:
I have a windows application which I would like to port for web, and give same look.
I have seen your form demo (internet options).
What is the easiest way to get same look as you have done in above demo.

This is not easy to answer it depends on your application, security, browser support, response time needed etc

Thanks John,
I think I did not put my question correctly.
What I mean is I want to get same GUI using ActiveWidgets.

One option I think is to get coordinates of each control and write style for .aw-system-control manually.
I was wondering if you have any simple idea.

Is your application going to be a web server? This is about the only way you are going to be able to do what you want to do, I know because that is what we do. We have creaded a web version of our windows app and it will eventually be entirely created in AW. Right now we are just using the grid. But you have to basically create stub objects in your native language that have no Windows rendering code, then you have to create the rendering portion so that it draws in HTML and serves it up the web user. I wish you the best of luck. This has taken us 2 years and it's still in development (it has been deployed world wide but only in a simple form). But I can say that it IS possible to do and if you do it right it looks great!

Karnal,

I think Jim is right these things look simple from the surface but are in fact real complicated. Open modeling took also years to make.
