    I can't seem to open videos. The link above opens up a google document,but each of the links for the videos in that document just opens the same page (list of videos).
    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Where do we need a new Dialog component.

    Whole lifetime of Alpha version 10.x advice has been to use a grid component instead of Dialog.

    So why we suddenly need Dialog with version 11 but not with version 10.x?

    it might be a good idea to actually watch the videos before asking the question.

    i think it will be petty obvious that the dialog extends the functionality of what you can do in a quite dramatic way.

    There are plenty of times that I need to use a dialog rather than a grid in v10. Unfortunately the v10 dialogs are handicapped in many ways. V11 solves that problem. The new dialogs are fantastic and far exceed my greatest expectations. I will make good use of them that's for sure.

    You are right, but it was impossible to watch videos because the link did not work.

    I cannot resist - I just have to say how wonderful the Dialog Tools are; stunning, I've just come of a big job (V10) with loads of error checking, will now head back and redo it. I fixes the issues of error messages hidden in closed tabs - a real curse!

    I must say - keep on keeping on - its brilliant work.

    Bloody-amazing.

    Had a good look at all these videos, and all I can say is very impressive the improved / new dialog features will deliver the ability to build very complex UI’s

    Sold, Wrap it up I’ll take one!

    I have to agree. Damm v11 makes it hard to work in v10.
