ASPRunner.Net is, in my opinion, the best software on the market to build secure, role-based data driven workflows and complex reports and dashboards.

Over the years, we started to use more and more stored procedures to be called by custom buttons and table events. It seemed to be more efficient having SQL Server handle some of the heavy lifting and more complicated tasks.

Now we are using another platform to perform some heavy lifting and adding brand new capabilities.

Our talented Lead RPA Developer, Michael DiPoffi, wrote some custom class files that we could easily integrate into ASPRunner.Net. We can now call APIs that will initiate automated workflows, passing parameters from the app to the enterprise RPA (Robotic Process Automation) execution server via normal table events and custom buttons. The class files also retrieve responses from the server to ensure it was successfully executed. This is a game changer.

Since in my organization, Automation, Enterprise Data and App Development are all under one area of IT, this was inevitable.

People often ask us this: “I found a great-looking theme on the Internet, how do I import it into PHPRunner or ASPRunner.NET”.

However, it is possible to make your project look exactly like any of those themes and this article will teach you how to do this.

For the inspiration, we will be using Material Dashboard Dark Edition theme by Creative Tim. Here is how it looks:

When you have a long List page with dozens of records, editing or viewing a record on a separate can be cumbersome. After you edit or view a record, clicking ‘Back to List’ will display all the records from the top and you lost the position of the record you just edited. This simple technique will allow you to scroll the List page back to the original position and also it will highlight the record that was just edited or viewed.
