Sample Files

Is there a way to just download updated sample files without installing the AppBuilder?

I know sometimes there are new controls etc that need to be updated but if we are using already installed ones, and you make some changes is there a way to do it?

I think it would be useful as time changes things and samples get modified.......as you know.

Re: Sample Files

And one more thing while I am thinking about it.  The .ap file is a text file and I was wondering if there is someway to view it as text and search it.  I know I can do it as an extrernal editor but might be a nice feature for the app.   

My thinking on this is that sometimes I need to find where something is like objects or variables and this helps me to locate them,

Any other ideas or ways to do this?

Thanks

No. At this time we can only update the whole installation, which include the apps samples. My recommendation to you is to maintain a copy of the applications by yourself. That is, supose you want to work in certain app sample. Ok. Copy that sample directory to another and work over that files instead the original ones. So that files never be touched by App Builder installations.

Yes; certainly the ".ab" files (App Builder's project or app files) is an XML file, so we can open it with our desired editor and may search and replace something, for example. However, a search engine (including the replace or refactoring feature) must be included in the future to App Builder, just like other things I need to study it and then try to implementing.
