Good day Michel. You said:
It is risqué to make assumptions of “what should be” in Xojo Web based on Desktop. The clever Xojo IDE and the uniform presentation of controls mask the inherent difference of nature of said controls, and the possibilities to make them behave identically.
I cant agree with you, because if I did, then why does Xojo have Line Step and Page Step in the web scrollbar properties, if they dont work.
I rather have engineers spend time making the next version HiDpI/Retina aware, for instance, than fix promptly a scrollbar. Each his own priorities.
Obligations should be on top of priority list
The “I am paying, they should fix it promptly” opinion is IMHO something that we tend to use all too often.
How many times have you heard me say this? Is there a number of times that I am allowed to say something ???
Especially as programmers, we should be humble enough to realize the complexity of such a product as an integrated development environment.
I not only agree, but also admire people who develop these complex environments, but this does not mean I cannot give my opinion.
In Desktop, Xojo has full control of every aspect of a control, and the program has immediate millisecond access to any corner of the control.
In Desktop Xojo, on my Mac, the scrollbar does not have the arrow heads, which annuls the Line step
In resumption, my principle work is not software. I have made dedicated software for my own use for many years (as soon as MS made VB available). I then decided a short while ago to sell software to my clients. I decided to investigate what other software (apart from VB) there was available. I came across Xojo, and liked it as being relatively easy to use and the conditions of price, web deploy etc. very favorable.
So, if you can contribute to the solution, I thank you very much. But if you cannot, dont waste your time giving me a lesson in moral.
