This section will take you through the process of building the Generic component, and show steps on how to build on this towards a more complex component.

Creating a JavaScript Client control requires an understanding of C++ and JavaScript. Experience of creating standard Omnis External Components is also beneficial, though not essential.

This tutorial takes the jsGeneric example provided as a basis, and builds up from there.

Completed versions of the Generic 2 & 3 examples are also provided. If you wish to use these, rather than follow through the tutorial to create them from jsGeneric, follow through the Building Generic section, instead using jsgeneric2/3 etc.
