Good Change, API 2.0 Database Benefits

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.

Converting Web Projects to Web Framework 2.0

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.

DatabaseRow Changes

As part of API 2.0, the DatabaseRow class was introduced alongside RowSet and DatabaseColumn. These three classes replace DatabaseRecord, RecordSet and DatabaseField respectively.

Improved Layout Position Locking

Among the many IDE improvements in 2019r2 we’ve made some improvements in how the Control Layout Locks work so even if a control is locked, it’ll still obey the left/top/right/bottom alignment locks. We are taking some hints from the way many graphic design programs approach this and we think it’ll be a big improvement to the way controls are organized on Windows and Containers.
