Xojo has an extensive testing period where actual users test a pre-release version with their projects but if you are wondering what kind of testing we do internally before each pre-release of Xojo, we have quite a bit of automated testing processes. There are over 400 tests just for the compiler alone. Already, we are approaching 300 tests for our Android framework. In total, across all supported platforms, there are over 2500 automated tests.

The driving logic behind these new controls is that they allow us to make their event names match the Web and Mobile versions. In addition, the new controls gave us the opportunity to make some other changes to various methods that would have been problematic to make in the existing controls. Desktop controls now are a much closer match in terms of API to their Web and Mobile equivalents. These new controls make more code work without changes when you move from one project type to another.

In addition, it isn’t possible to set the font weight and scale for the glyph. In this new post, I’ll show a more flexible way to work with these symbols on macOS 11+.
