The WebImageViewer control allow us to load and display any image retrieved from a given URL. Wouldn’t be nice to have that same kind of functionality in the Desktop and iOS versions of the ImageViewer? Continue reading and I’ll show you how to achieve just that.

At Xojo, price changes are rare and we strive to keep the price affordable for all kinds of developers. In fact, the entry price point for Xojo has been the same since 1998. Beginning today, new Xojo Lite licenses are $149/year. Desktop, Web and iOS licenses are $399/year. Xojo Pro is $799/year. Xojo Pro Plus will remain $1999/year.
With Xojo 2022 Release 1, you can use XojoScript to create Code Assistants for use with selected text in the Code Editor. Here’s a quick example of one that swaps the prefix of a comment:
You may or may not be aware that running iOS projects in the Simulator does not allow you to check all of your app’s features. There are a few features which rely on hardware capabilities which the Simulator cannot emulate. This can make it hard to track down bugs, and the only recourse is console logging. Starting in Xojo 2022r1 it’s possible to run your apps right on a physical device connected by USB.
With the added functionality of the Brush property and the ClipToPath, Clip and DrawObject methods, Xojo 2022r1 completes the practical PDFGraphics class support for all the methods and properties that makes sense (or are applicable) from Xojo’s Graphics class.
Back in 2020 when PDFDocument was first introduced in Xojo, we had to make a compromise in order to render the output created via Xojo’s integrated Report Editor. That was far from ideal, but we needed to first meet some other requirements in order to get the full vectorial quality you expect in both PDFs as well as in rendering reports.
With Xojo 2022r1 I am happy to say we have achieved that goal! The best part is that you don’t need to do anything to take advantage of the update. Keep your code as it is now and, the next time you output your report into a PDF document you’ll get the full vectorial quality you expect!
Xojo 2022r1 brings a bunch of font handling improvements plus new features to the creation of PDF documents.
