Recently I needed to update an old Web project that used a Microsoft SQL Server Database as its data source. This application is running as a service on a Windows machine and is for internal use only. I decided when updating the project, I would also update to API 2.0 database commands using Xojo 2019 R3.2 and I would like to share some of those code changes with you.
All posts related to using databases.
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.
Xojo 2020r1 upgraded to SQLite 3.31.1. Notable new features include PRAGMA lists and generated columns aka computed columns!

It’s always a good time to learn something new! And maybe you have some free time on your hands now? We know our screen time is up to 23 hours and 47 minutes a day so let’s put that inevitable extra screen time to good use and learn a new skill – programming. If you are going to add programming to your skillset, it’s logical to begin with a language that makes it simple to learn the basics of programming. Let me show you a learning path you can follow over 14 days that is aimed at giving you a confident and capable to start to programming. After 14 days, you will have the basic skills to begin creating your own apps. And using Xojo, with the check of a box, you can build those apps for Mac, Windows and Linux and after that, use your new skills to develop web, iOS and Raspberry Pi apps!
This tutorial will show you how to deploy your SQLite based projects so they behave right on Desktop, Web and iOS, copying the database file to the right place on every target.
As part of API 2.0, the DatabaseRow class was introduced alongside RowSet and DatabaseColumn. These three classes replace DatabaseRecord, RecordSet and DatabaseField respectively.
It was urgent to migrate Packr API and database from an aging 32-bit CentOS 6.9 server running on Atom N2800 with 2GB of RAM and 500GB HDD to some optimized modern equipment. And imperative to do it in as little time as 2 minutes.
How to save pictures in a database is without doubt one of the more frequent questions I’m asked about. I hear this from Xojo newcomers,…
