Hi, first time post.

We sell an application built on a legacy platform that has some 300 forms. Around a dozen of these are monsters - 250 or more controls. These provide core functionality for our application.

When moving to a new platform, we would want to keep the layout of these forms recognizably the same, to keep retraining costs low for our customers, and encourage adoption.

For simplicity, we would want to exclude these forms from phone apps, to remove the need to slice-n-dice them to fit on small screens.

So, can OutSystems handle big, dense forms with hundreds of controls? Is there a performance hit or other downsides when doing this?

Thanks,

-Ken

Yes. OutSystems can handle big forms with lots of controls. The Reactive Web apps are more suited towards this type of application. You can feel free to create a personal environment and check it out!

Sure, Outsystems can handle any form with lots of control. I will suggest, use blocks to increase re-usability.

Hi Ken, 


It's nice move to switch over to Outsystems platform. As per your requirement Outsystems will provide the low cost and development efforts to develop big application. It will also care the maintenance of the server & application. 

As per Vikas suggestion, You can use blocks & Modules(big form divided into multiple parts) to design big forms. Outsystems supports Reactive Web apps and Mobile Apps that's support same module so it will be also helpful to develop application. It will smoothly handle all the process.       


I hope it will be helpful for you.  

Hi Ken, 

Did you know you can create for free your own cloud environment at OutSystems and run as many tests you want to see if it fits to your needs?

Hi Ken,

Otavio suggested you can create your free environment for testing out the things. But keep in mind this will be a shared environment with some limitation so please don't judge platform performance with this free personal environment.
