In order to test the Android apps you create in Xojo, you either need to have an actual Android device (Xojo supports on-device testing/debugging) or you need to set up an Android Emulator in Android Studio. Read on or jump over to Xojo YouTube Channel to watch this process in this Creating an Android Emulator video.

Starting with Xojo 2023r1 you’ll find a new feature in Xojo’s Debugger panel that allows you to filter the objects and variables displayed, even between different project runs! This lets you stay focused on the more important objects and variables instead of scrolling through the list of all entries.
Xojo 2022r4 opens the door for running projects on 64-bit Raspberry Pi ARM boards. Console, Desktop and Web are supported.
Often when debugging an application, you’ll need to enter the same data in the same fields over & over. There is a temptation to set the value of the field to the test data. The downside of this is that you need to remove all those defaults before deploying your application.
At XDC 2019, I did a session called Avoiding Troubleshooting Troubles, which was essentially about ways to take advantage of the Xojo debugger. During the…
A lot of times you’d think that single lines of code, aka “one-liners”, like
if j >= 145 condition then dosomething()
if condition then return
might not have any downsides. I would argue that they do.
About three years ago, we added HiDPI/Retina support to our framework which was released to users as part of Xojo 2016r1 when we also shipped our first HiDPI IDE.
With Apple’s announcements at WWDC 2018 and the introduction of dark mode it was time to revisit our graphics and the overall appearance of the IDE again. Here are some things which contribute to the changes that have been made and ones that you will see in the coming months.
If you are a Mac or Linux web or cross-platform developer, one of the easiest ways to test your apps on Windows is to use a virtual machine. And you can test Windows in a VM completely for free by using the test VMs provided by Microsoft.
Just in time for Xojo 2017 Release 1 and its Remote Debugger for the Raspberry Pi, we released a new book “Programming the Raspberry Pi with Xojo”. The book contains 19 chapters that introduce you to the Raspberry Pi, take you through setting it up and covers learning about Xojo programming for the Pi. Develop and build console and desktop apps for the Pi using Xojo 2019r1 or later for free (download)!
The book includes 8 step-by-step projects for creating a variety of Xojo apps for the Raspberry Pi, including: a text adventure, a music player, a game, Internet access, a web app, plus hardware projects.
Using the Remote Debugger means that you can run Xojo apps on the Pi for testing and development without have to first purchase a Xojo license.
