Want a quick and easy way to send notifications to your devices (iOS, Android and web browsers) from Xojo desktop and web apps? Perhaps you want to send a notification if a purchase is made, an error occurs or a long process has finished. If so, the free Pushover web service might be what you need!
In desktop apps, you can use Xojo.Core.Locale to get the user’s locale for formatting dates and numbers. However, in a web app this value returns the locale used by the web server rather than the locale of the current user session.
To display dates formatted in the locale of the user session, you need to get the LanguageCode from WebSession and use that to create a locale that you can then use to display the date.
By default the built-in Web Browser that is used on Windows to show web pages uses the Internet Explorer 7 rendering engine. Which means the Xojo HTMLViewer and the ActiveX WebBrowser controls also use this older rendering engine.
Everybody is taking about multi-platform software development these days. From a desktop to a laptop to a tablet to a phone, people and companies want their software to run on whatever device they are using.
