We’re thinking about running a structs webex, it’s going to be a bit ‘techie’. Is there interest?

Think it would be better to have a nice little tutorial with some basic code provided as export file to get more experiences. Perhaps backed up by a youtube video. I attended Berry Kuijers great webex in january (thats where I got $dbgstruct from), but it's a bit hard to pick up all the important issues presented in the demos to make up own experiments.


  1. It would be nice to see how uniface lists (and all their commands like $item, $itemnr) have their equivalent in the struct world. So how to traverse a struct, query a node by "name" and run through the siblings etc.

  2. To be fair, I still can't work out what they are FOR. 'Passing complex data' seems to be the headline, but as I understand it, they don't provide the state information as to occurrence modification that an XML transfer does, so they can't be intended for UI/Service interaction.
