DMXzone App Connect Manual Support

Next generation client side framework for data-driven web sites and apps

DMXzone App Connect is the next generation client side framework and base ground for a handful of additional components, which allow you build dynamic web sites and apps, the most modern way possible. It comes with phenomenal rendering speed of dynamic data and you have visual and direct access to custom components, dynamic attributes and events and smart data form inputs.

Last but not least DMXzone App Connect is fully compatible with DMXzone Server Connect and DMXzone Bootstrap 4, which lets you build modern, fully responsive and dynamic data driven sites and apps. 



Blazing Fast Runtime

Ultralight library of just 15kb gzipped for the best performance. No jQuery required!

Lightning Rendering Speed

Ultra-fast rendering of data compared to industry standard React and VueJS.

Extendable Client Side Framework

Boostable by additional components like data traversal, data view, record and more.

Visual App Data Structure

Clear workflow to have overview of your components, events, inputs and more.

Revolutional Sites & Apps Builder

No more server/Dreamweaver behaviors and jQuery for building dynamic sites and apps.

No Coding Required

The visual builder generates all the code for you. No need to hand-code anything.


Great App Connect structure

Fantastic preview of your app components with their properties, which are automatically synced in design, live and code view.

Custom components for more complex apps

Define new types of HTML elements compatible with the HTML5 Custom Elements v1 web standard.

Smart components with reusable data

HTML forms and their input fields become fully data aware. You can use their values in expressions, react on changes and even get the status of your HTML5 validation, automatically set the right validation classes and show a message.

Dynamic attributes

Create a full list of dynamic attributes, which you can apply on certain conditions. Required, disabled, show/hide or toggle class, it's all possible in DMXzone App Connect.

Dynamic events

Dynamically bind on any event and call a component action with many event modifiers.

Smart Context Sensible Data Bindings Picker

The smart context sensible data bindings picker lets you choose your data from the designated data bindings pickup dialog.

Component Actions Picker

On dynamic events you can use the components actions picker to choose on which component what action should be called and its parameters.

No jQuery dependency

DMXzone App Connect is based on pure JavaScript and support all modern browsers from IE9+

Full Compatibility with DMXzone Server Connect

Use DMXzone Server Connect to connect to your database and your data, which you want to populate on your website or app. All client side data can be easily browsed by DMXzone App Connect's data bindings pickup dialog.

Awesome dynamic data rendering speed

The time compares to industry standard React and VueJS. DMXzone App Connect render speed is up to 4.8 faster for 2000 records, compared to HTML5 Data Bindings, which is an amazing result and improvement.
