Do you need to display all the font family members (styles and weights) available in your Windows computer? There is a simple way to do it using the RegistryItem class! Continue reading and I’ll show you how.
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.
Starting with Xojo 2021r3, the Windows IDE is now themed for dark mode. This is because we’ve added support for dark mode aware Windows apps. But wait, how is that even possible with Win32 controls?

We are excited about Microsoft’s announcement regarding Windows 11. A large portion of Xojo users develop on and/or for Windows. The new UI looks fantastic and will be a welcome upgrade for Windows users. Xojo and apps written in Xojo will run without modification on Windows 11.
Did you love Visual Basic? A lot of us did, but it’s 2021 and technology is ever-changing. As you look at the modern alternatives, consider Xojo. For over 20 years, Xojo has been the spiritual successor to VB, a rapid, cross-platform programming language and integrated development environment (IDE).

Two factors that are increasingly important because modern coders are everywhere, not just in the technology department.
You can package your Xojo Web Apps in a Docker Image. That allows you to run an instance of your applications easily in a Docker Container. Docker provides the infrastructure to host the apps, start/stop them, switch between image versions – and much more.
