Websites that use ActiveWidgets Grid 2.0?

Where can I see 2.0 in action?

There are demos showing 2.0 examples on my site

I would be interested to site websites using it, as a finished product to see how well it is integrated in the site.

Actually all applications using AW (which I know about) are either on intranets (or extranets, but still behind the login/password). If someone has an application which is publicly accessible - please post the link here :-)

If I manage to prove (using the firefox only trial) that I can do everything I need, I'll ask my company to get a license, then I'll post a link :)

I do not see any clause in license preventing any buyer from putting grid on non-password-protected public page. Hence, any lamer can easily grab 2.0 code (or what ever is latest release) from there without paying anything. I guess there is nothing anyone can do about it. We really can not protect anything which is coming to browser and execute or render (images/css/js/html/flash etc).

When I used JS formatter on compressed code (the one comes with WSAD), it produced a very nice and workable js+css code. Not sure what Alex is planning to achieve by restricting the code :-/

My 2 cents.

Well unfortunately for Alex, JS files you can't really do anything to protect code. He does appear to merge all the source into one file removing line breaks and what not (for compression NOT to protect it). But due to the nature of javascript, you can't really protect it. Yes, you can obfuscate, that ads another layer of complexity, but all your methods and calls would change, so it's not feasible. To me the reason why AW has licenses is because they are looking at it from a business aspect. If some kiddie is using 2.0 in his site, you know what, Alex is not really losing much. If someone is using 2.0 with their application, and has not paid for it, and is making money off that application, then yes, there would be much concern there.

From License Text
This agreement entitles you to the royalty free distribution of Software in
any applications, frameworks, or elements developed using the Software, which
do not violate restrictions set in section 4 of this agreement.


Any one with a Standard License can use/distribute in their application. Most of which are not going to be password protected directories. our application that we are using with 2.0 is not finished yet. Once complete I will post a link to our demo.

I personaly would use this stuff anywhere it just so happends the market I am working in and software we do people want the application protected :)

I think this will be fairly common but I am sure there are some people using it on a public site.

I just want to clarify - there is nothing in the license which restricts you from using AW on public website. If you want to use AW in the application which is publicly accessible - that's fine, I will be more than happy to see that (and add links to the site so others can see it as well).

The code protection is entirely different matter and (unfortunately :-) there is not much that could be done here.
