TPiCS-X Web Client
Those who enter
the actual results and the customer order data every day like us do not need to
be able to do various things and all we want is to be able to do our routine
As all we do is
refer to the schedule data and master files, simple functions will do.
As we have a lot
of clients installed, it would be too much of a bother to install the system in
all the clients. Besides, it would be painful to keep the version of the system
the same in all the clients in minor upgrades.
The TPiCS-X Web Client has been developed as an addition to TPiCS-X Version 3.2
in order to respond to these needs.

Customization of Web Client
TPiCS-X Web Client has been developed in
C# under the environment of Microsoft .NET.
Since the aspx file is an HTML, the design of screens can be changed flexibly by
directly editing tag elements and their attributes of an HTML.
The configuration file (cfg file) keeps a lot of information such as SQL
statements to acquire data from the design of screens and the database, and the
users can freely configure it.
We plan to release the source codes of C# as well under certain conditions.
