Sometimes we need to deal with temporary FolderItem instances, and in those cases it would be great to not have to care about when they get out of scope in order to delete them. Wouldn’t it be great to automate that task? Continue reading and you’ll see how easy it is to implement this!

Among the many new features introduced by the Web Framework 2.0, one of my favourites is the new WebChart class. Based on Chart.js, this class offers a total of eight chart types you can create and use really easily in your projects; including the Line, Bar, Pie or Doughnut chart types among others.
Are there bumps in the road? Sure! Are they worth barreling into at full speed? Oh yeah! Bring it on Web 2.0, I’m ready!
Based on recent conversations with a couple Xojo users, here are a few quick tips for uploading and working with SQLite and MySQL databases on Xojo Cloud.
If you aren’t already familiar with Xojo Cloud, it’s simple, secure, maintenance-free hosting for your Xojo web apps.
Paul and Greg talk about Xojo 2020 Release 1, Web 2.0 and other things.
One of the big changes in Web Framework 2.0 is that web styles are no longer the primary means of styling controls. Instead themes are used to provide a single, consistent look and feel across the entire application. We made this change because dealing with individual styles became more complex and unwieldy as projects grew bigger. Themes simplify this dramatically.
Our vision for Xojo Cloud is a simple, one-click deployment option for your web app. Xojo Cloud allows you to focus on developing your app instead of dealing with the nitty gritty details of web hosting and security. Xojo Cloud has tons of new stuff to compliment apps built with Xojo 2020r1!
One of the trickier things when dealing with PDF document creation is typography. By default, the PDF typography handling in Xojo’s PDFDocument class includes the “standard 14“, 14 typefaces you can use freely without requiring them to be included as part of the document itself. This guarantees a very important thing: any user can open and view that PDF document as it was created, without the text suffering from typography substitution, style lost, variations in kerning and tracking, etc. The standard 14 include Times, Courier, Helvetica, Symbol and Zapf Dingbats.
With the release of Xojo 2020r1 comes the new 2.0 version of our web framework. While the way in which you build web applications hasn’t fundamentally changed, this new version is a from-the-ground-up rewrite and utilizes API 2.0 for greatly improved consistency. This means that the conversion process is going to be time-consuming, but will be well worth the effort as web applications built upon Web Framework 2.0 will be more robust, handle more users, be more responsive and have a far more modern look and feel.
