Tools and ABL Support : AppBuilder : Visual and nonvisual objects

Visual and nonvisual objects

When you start the AppBuilder, a separate window called the Object Palette appears. The Object Palette allows you to create visual objects (buttons, for example).
However, in WebSpeed, you only create nonvisual objects, which include embedded SpeedScript, CGI Wrapper, and HTML-mapping Web objects. (WebSpeed SpeedScript is an interpreted, block-structured, and statement-oriented language based on the ABL (Advanced Business Language.)
Note: You cannot manipulate nonvisual objects graphically at design time, and they do not have a visualization element at run time.
