There is something that is even better than using Cell Renderers from third parties- building them yourself. In this second part, you will learn how…
If you are creating a web application, you’ve already noticed most of the time you are using WebListBox controls. Xojo Web 2.0 comes with a hidden gem called Custom Cell Renderers. They allow you to create reusable pieces of code to enhance your table cells.
ducators can download Xojo to a classroom of computers and activate the Xojo Educational license on a build machine. Whether your classroom is Windows, Mac or Linux, the Xojo IDE is cross-platform and free to download. Though you may only be teaching desktop development, your students can stretch their skills and use Xojo’s free IDE to develop web, mobile or Raspberry Pi apps.
The ability to specify “White Space” for the trim functions was introduced and largely ignored apart from the release notes. Using Trim (or LTrim or RTrim) will remove spaces from the beginning, end or both of your string. The new function allows you to specify what you want to trim.
With API 2.0, Xojo has taken the opportunity to transition to more consistent APIs, modernize frameworks when we can and generally prepare for the future so that you can continue to use Xojo to make great apps for a long time. We are excited about the future of Xojo and can’t wait to see the apps you create!
At Xojo we did the hard work of creating a framework with an API that manages the nuances, intricacies, and subtle yet important differences between 7 different platforms (macOS, Windows, Linux, web, Raspberry Pi, iOS and soon, Android) so you can focus on what makes your application unique. We have been doing it for over 20 years.
With so many programming languages and development environments around … why you should try Xojo? I could tell you more than 400,000 reasons to just jump-in right away; reasons I’ve heard for over 10 years now from Xojo users around the world that are building all kind of apps, products and solutions in all kinds of fields. Nevertheless, if I really think about, all of these reasons can be condensed into the following 10 main points. Continue reading and I’m pretty sure you will want to give Xojo a try too!
Brent Simmons did an excellent job explaining why developers shouldn’t provide ETAs.
