It is now possible to select/deselect items in the PAINTAREA. The selection can be done by defining a rectangular range with the mouse or by clicking the individual items.
The serve side actually creates a JSON representation of the configuration that is passed into the chart instance on client side. So any flexibility that is provided by RChart is usable.

Get to know and meet CaptainCasa – both the framework and the people behind!
This year’s community meeting is scheduled for 1st of December 2016 in Schwetzingen, close to Heidelberg. The agenda and details on the logistics are summarized in the following documents:
We invite everyone who is interested in CaptainCasa, in HTML5 for Business Applications and in Rich Client Architecture in general. Participation is free of cost. Please register by mail to info@CaptainCasa.com.
We created an own starting point for accessing the (online) demos by using mobile devices (tablet, smartphone).

The PAINTAREA component is a container holding inner components. Each component is arranged by explicit x,y,width,height definition. In addition you can draw lines. It is an excellent environment for creating interactive diagrams.
Of course you may also create diagrams by e.g. using SVG content or Canvas-based content. But: the level of integration of the PAINTAREA is the key! – Any CaptainCasa component can be directly used as item within the PAINTAREA, so you can directly place buttons / fields / grids / popup menus etc. into the content area, without any changes compared to the “normal” way of adding them to dialogs.
We internally introduced some extended accessibility options in order to pass detailed information about a component to tools like screen readers. Each component has some dedicated interface to produce textual information that not only reflects the text behind the component, but also information about the component itself and its non-textual information. The accessibility options are switched on by passing a certain URL parameter.
Some examples (the information you read as tool-tip is the one which is interpreted by screen readers):
The text composition follows some rules which can be configured. – The extended accessibility options will be part of next update.
CaptainCasa’s RISC-HTML was nominated for the JAX Innovation Award 2016.

We published update 20160913. It is available for download within our DOWNLOAD AREA.
Most significant improvement: we improved the style concept. As before styles are defined in .css files (where else…). But, the .css files are now generated out of proper XML definitions. Adding new styles, and modifying existing styles is much easier now: you just inherit style classes from one another and only need to specify differences as consequence.
