great news !
… althought i don’t understand what serialisation is :grin:,
but when i do i might find it usefull, is this standard computing ? i’ll manipulate many json files, i’ll ask chat gpt or google

Serialization is when it maps to and from your object model.

As in you read JSON which you maybe get from Web service and the Serializer magically maps it to your Xojo class model for you, even complex nested model.

Same way it can also map your class model into JSON.

Like this picture shows…here its taking the Facility Xojo class…which has properties inside it that reference other classes, then with 2 lines of code it makes JSON from it.

Just an FYI, the web page on this one lists it as released in ‚ÄúApril 2025‚ÄĚ instead of 2023. You‚Äôve always been ahead of your time, but you keep setting new records! :slight_smile:

Should be fixed now, thanks !

Will the GaugeControl be implementing other gauge types in the future? I have a use for this (a scriptable app that controls instruments via HPIB), but the current gauge style is a bit too reminiscent of 1960’s power stations for my liking.
