What Do I Need to Do To Deploy a Standalone With A Data Grid?

A data grid relies on the stack revDataGridLibrary in order to function properly. This lesson will describe how to include this stack in your standalone applications.

How The Standalone Builder Adds The Necessary Files

How The Standalone Builder Adds The Necessary Files

When you add a data grid to a stack, a substack is created whose name begins with "Data Grid Templates".

When you build a standalone application Revolution looks for a substack whose name begins with "Data Grid Templates". If it finds one then the revDataGridLibrary stack is added to your standalone application.

But What About Launcher Stacks (Splash Stacks)?

But What About Launcher Stacks (Splash Stacks)?

Some developers prefer to use a launcher (or splash) stack technique. This technique builds a standalone using a stack with very little code in it. In this case the stack used to build the standalone will not have a substack whose name begins with "Data Grid Templates" as no data grids have been added to it.

In this case you will need to create a substack that tricks the Standalone Builder into adding the necessary stack files. From the File menu, create a new substack of your launcher stack (1).

Name the Substack

Name the Substack

Name the substack "Data Grid Templates Dud" and save your launcher stack. Now if you build a standalone application the Standalone Builder will include the necessary data grid stack.
