Many people around the world are celebrating the holidays by giving gifts, which means more and more people are organizing Secret Santa events. In November of 2018, Jérémie Leroy had the idea of making a Secret Santa iOS app. 3 years, 32 languages and 6.5 millions downloads later, Jérémie incorporated Xojo Web to improve his highly successful Xojo iOS app. Secret Santa is a prime example of what is possible and how you can leverage your Xojo skills to expand to other platforms when you need to.

Would you like to automate the build processes of Xojo built applications with GitHub Actions? With no user interaction the whole process can be performed:…
Xojo MVP Anthony Cyphers has been using Xojo for nearly 20 years and is currently building a User Interface framework for a project he is working on. This project needs to have the ability to tweak colors as needed and have those changes applied across every element of that framework. Read on Anthony’s blog about the way he solved this problem.
Xojo supports dark mode in most of the Desktop controls. However, the TabPanel control doesn’t yet support dark mode. But it can be made to support it. I use a segmented button and a PagePanel to overcome this and in the blog post, I’ll show you how.
Xojo Mobile and Web project controls don’t raise the TextChanged Event like Desktop controls do. But I want my code to be as similar as possible across all project types so I’ve created some custom controls. In this blog post I’ll walk you through the process of creating a Custom Desktop TextField control.
There seem to be a lot of misconceptions about what the MVPs do. Some say it’s just a shiny pin on our lapels, others expect us to be Xojo’s de facto QA. So, what’s expected of us and what do we really do?
Many times, when we create a desktop application which is doing huge processes, it happens that the responsiveness of our app can be interrupted for few seconds. As developers we need to avoid such scenarios because we want to keep the interaction between the user and the app constant while it’s in use. You have to imagine that our customer doesn’t have a developer’s mindset and will not wait more than 5 seconds if the app freezes. Threading is a great solution to these situations.
ALE is a tool which Xojo developers can use to write assembly language in their applications. It can be used just for fun, distribution in compiled apps, or as a learning tool to discover what Xojo and other languages must be doing underneath.
In Xojo 2021R2 binary enumerations were introduced. These Enums must be declared in a module and are treated by the compiler as a class. Learn to create an Enum for Days of the Week and demonstrate the use of that by creating a custom segmented button control.
