I was having some fun with badges, trying to recreate a design. I’ve ended up writing a few extension methods to use them on almost any WebUIControl.

For Xojo 2022r3, the team worked on a wide variety of things for the Bug Bash. Two notable areas that I worked on were the Code Editor and the updates to the Syntax Help Area and I thought you might like to hear a bit about them.
Starting with Xojo 2022r3 it is possible to create and add tables to PDF documents using Xojo’s PDFTable class and the PDFTableDataSource class interface. Among…
While PDFTable and PDFDataTableSource ease the way to render tables in your PDF documents on Desktop, Web, Raspberry Pi and Console projects (iOS to come!) and are the big new features for PDFDocument in Xojo 2022r3, that’s not all that improved. There are additional features added to PDFDocument you might find helpful such as more control while using PDFForm and improvements to dealing with TOC indexes. Learn more about how to get advantage of these additions!
Xojo has very good graphics support. You can drop images into your project and use them with several controls. You can use the various Paint events to draw your own graphics. And there’s another source of graphics you may not have considered: emojis. Emojis can be used anywhere that text can be used because they are simply Unicode characters. That means they can be used in textfields, buttons, labels, popup menus, listboxes and more.
Xojo MVP Anthony Cyphers has been using Xojo for nearly 20 years and is currently building a User Interface framework for a project he is working on. This project needs to have the ability to tweak colors as needed and have those changes applied across every element of that framework. Read on Anthony’s blog about the way he solved this problem.
Our Engineering team primarily focused on a Bug Bash during the month of August with the goal of addressing issues that did not meet our typical criteria. Unlike previous Bug Bashes, we invited users to nominate up to ten cases they would like to see addressed. During the month 100 issues were fixed! Of those – 50% were created in the past 90 days, and 10% were created more than one year ago.
I was recently asked if there was a way to use Xojo Canvas Graphics to draw using the math X-Y coordinate system. First a little background. In Xojo (along with Java, .NET and many other languages), graphics are drawn where (0,0) is at the top left, X increases to the right and Y increases down. Other languages or APIs (Cocoa, for example) use a system where (0,0) is at the bottom left, X increases to the right and Y increases up.
Sometimes we need to rotate a Picture from portrait to landscape and vice versa. Since the introduction of the Graphics methods Translate and Rotate this is pretty simple to do! Continue reading and I will show you how to create a Method Extension for the Picture class that will be able to do that. This will work on Desktop and iOS projects by only copying and pasting the code, but you will need to make some changes to the example project for the Web version because of the need to convert Picture to WebPicture and back.
Tim has found that many NetSuite users want to create custom applications that interact with their data in NetSuite and Xojo is truly ideal for this. Some NetSuite users contract this work out to developers like Tim while others are interested in creating apps themselves. During the webinar, Tim and I demonstrated Xojo to NetSuite users while also demonstrating NetSuite to Xojo users who may be interested in incorporating it into their organizations or providing development services to NetSuite users.
