    Default why reference AEX files in a component ?

    I don't understand this:

    I have created several xbasic functions that I call in a5w pages & in components. In my project properties I have specified the name of the aex file that I use to compile these functions into.
    My components work ok & can use the xbasic functions.

    I now discover that in order to use the functions in the aex file I have to reference the aex file in the component. That beats me; how come the already worked without referencing the aex file ?

    Are the functions published separately ? What am I missing here ?

    Do not reference the aex file in the component. That used to be the only way, then project properties came along, and project properties are the correct place, and only place. My guess is that it's time to removed the property in the components where you can reference an aex, but Alpha's probably left it in there for legacy purposes.
