I finally had a chance to install Xojo 2017R3 to see if the GUI quirks on the Raspberry Pi have been ironed out.
Here's a screen capture of my code compiled with Xojo 2017R1:
And here's a screen capture of my code compiled with Xojo 2017R3:
It appears that the font issues haven't been resolved yet. I can live with the new way the buttons are rendered but I really need to have control over the font sizes and weights. This application runs on a 5" touch-screen in the dashboard of a car. It is touch-screen only (no keyboard or mouse). Losing control of the font sizes and weights means that the text is too small to be easily read at a glance. This is unusable and potentially dangerous in an automotive environment.
I have another commercially distributed application that runs on a 7" touch-screen. It also requires large fonts for readability.
It looks like I'm stuck with Xojo 2017R1 until this is addressed, which is too bad as I'd like to get the benefit of the other bug fixes and enhancements made in later versions of Xojo.
Does anyone know if or when this will be fixed?
