Android Update – October 2019

Though the MBS Xojo Conference is still in progress, I wanted to post an update about the demo Geoff just presented on our Android progress, since we have been very busy the last 5 months. Many controls/classes are now working including Button, TextField, TextArea, Slider, ProgressBar, Switch, HTMLViewer, DateChooser, FolderItem, Dictionary, MessageBox and more. Geoff showed code executing in the Android emulator and ran projects straight from the IDE to his Android device. Graphics are also working now, as you can see in the demo video below.

Though we have made a lot of progress since our last demo in April, we still have some items left to complete, including adding Debugger support and completing the IDE integration.

The HTMLViewer Example

After we ship our initial release of Android, we have a few things planned. We will be updating the iOS Framework to API 2.0 and adding auto-layout to Android. In addition, we plan to have a single mobile project for both Android and iOS, so just as you select your target OS on the desktop today, you’ll be able to do the same on mobile – Android or iOS.

Geoff runs an Android app on his device.

The conference attendees were very excited to see the latest update, the mobile future on Xojo is bright! Stay tuned for more news and announcements.

**Xojo Android is not currently in beta and we have not yet announced a ship date.
