  • The answer is most than likely than not especially if you wish to include controls within the client.

  • Hi Ciro, 

    I think it the best for you as a developer if to revise and learn this tool. Everything is moving in that direction and the old javascript is becoming a very modern tool today. 

    Besides JavaScript, I suggest your learn JQuery and JQueryMobile, since the new LS html client are based in those utilities. I, myself, haven't code in JS since some years as now and am relearning/remembering the concepts in this tool. It appears to me that JS/JQuery/JQueryMobile are fascinating tools and bring lot of fun when learning those. 

    I've found these links useful; there are lots of them in the web, so feel free to use others if they better suit you:

    http://eloquentjavascript.net/    (go to the free html part) 

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/JavaScript/Guide

    JS structures were modeled after C programming lenguage, so if you use C# to write your code, it will be an easier learning curve. 

    Bye ...

  • JavaScript Resources from Microsoft is a nice place to start learning JavaScrip. It helped a lot.
