  1. Citrix Customization Cookbook


    This blog is a ‘cookbook’ of customization queries and requests that I’ve had since the release of StoreFront 3.0, together with some worked examples. Hope it is useful! For each question, I've provided some explaination together with some javascript and/or css examples. The javascript should always be added to the custom\script.js file - for example C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\PurpleWeb\custom; and the css should always be added to the style.css ...

  2. Citrix Workspace Cloud Apps & Desktops Service: The Perfect Prescription for IT

    Applications and Desktops Service

    Have you tried VDI in the past, but felt the use cases were too limited?

    Client Drive Redirection enables users to access files and folders located on the endpoint from within a VDI or HSD session.

  5. XenApp/XenDesktop 7.6 Network Printing Considerations


      Printing is always a challenge in a XenApp/XenDesktop design, as so many different criteria come into consideration. Note: I'll use XenApp from now on, but from a printing design point of view, it does not change a lot between XenApp and XenDesktop, unless you are using RemotePC feature of XenDesktop (more on that at another time?) On eDocs, some scenarios are covered, and there is one question that ...

    recipe box

    Now that StoreFront 3.0 is out, I wanted to return to the topic of Approvals Workflows and give some more guidance as to what can be built using the new Receiver APIs. My previous post showed what was possible with the tech preview, but it also shone the light on a few teething problems. I think I can safely say these have all been resolved. For this post, I ...
