Forms-like scrolling on Web with PL/SQL

Implementing smoothly scrolling Grids in Web applications (a.k.a Infinite Scroll) has always been a challenge for developers. In particuler, PL/SQL Developers just don’t understand why such a great feature which has been available in Oracle Forms for decades is so hard to implement in Web applications.
Today, we’ve got a solution for them.

FS Desktop 1.6 comes with built-in Infinite Scroll support. All you have to do is to click to two combo boxes and Grids in your Formspider applications will start taking advantage of the feature. Formspider Infinite Scroll even supports, editing, creating and deleting rows right inside the Grid component. Formspider takes care of everything in the server and the client. You do not need to worry about a thing.
It just works.
