Xojo and Apple Vision Pro

Apple has released the developer documentation for Vision Pro, their recently announced mixed reality headset. So far, it looks promising that iOS apps written in Xojo will just work. Of course, we don’t yet have one of these to use for testing. If we did, we’d be too busy playing with it to write this blog post, however we have tried running some Xojo iOS projects in the Vision Pro Simulator and they work without modification so that’s a very good sign.

Testing REST-based Web Services

Using Xojo’s URLConnection to communicate with web services is pretty straightforward. But testing the actual REST API calls can get tricky. To make it easier to test and experiment with REST API calls, Paul created a app in Xojo for doing just this. He called it RESTy in its original format back in 2015. You can download the updated project here built with Xojo 2022r4.1.

Using Emojis in Xojo

Xojo has very good graphics support. You can drop images into your project and use them with several controls. You can use the various Paint events to draw your own graphics. And there’s another source of graphics you may not have considered: emojis. Emojis can be used anywhere that text can be used because they are simply Unicode characters. That means they can be used in textfields, buttons, labels, popup menus, listboxes and more.

Xojo and NetSuite

Tim has found that many NetSuite users want to create custom applications that interact with their data in NetSuite and Xojo is truly ideal for this. Some NetSuite users contract this work out to developers like Tim while others are interested in creating apps themselves. During the webinar, Tim and I demonstrated Xojo to NetSuite users while also demonstrating NetSuite to Xojo users who may be interested in incorporating it into their organizations or providing development services to NetSuite users.
