Our user community has been busy enhancing the capabilities of Xojo for iOS with Declares!
We have been quite pleased with the feedback we’ve received about Xojo iOS, but we are commonly asked when Xojo will support a specific iOS feature that it does not yet have. We will be adding new iOS features with each release, but you may not have to wait for us to add a feature. With a bit of knowledge about CocoaTouch and the use of the Declare command in Xojo, there are many things you can take advantage of today.
In particular, I’d like to call out these projects:
iOSKit by Jason King
This project (on GitHub) adds a wide variety of things to Xojo for iOS. This is just a short list:
- Camera access
And much, much more!
AppleLib by Ulrich Bogun
This project adds many few features to both iOS and macOS.
iOSDesignExtensions by Jérémie Leroy
A set of 100+ UI extensions for Xojo iOS framework controls, including:
iRate by Jérémie Leroy
A handy Xojo class that prompts users of your iPhone or Mac App Store app to rate your application after using it for a while. Similar to Appirater, but with a simpler, cleaner interface and automatic support for iOS fast application switching.
iOSWrapper by Michel Bujardet
This project (also on GitHub) adds some methods to make it easier for people to get used to the Xojo framework and also adds many of the iOS declares that have been posted in the forum.
Xojo resources include:
- iOS Declare Example Projects
- Calling iOS Native APIs with Declares
- iOS Open-Source Projects
- Video: Creating iOS Declares
