@Michael Batakis In all honesty, if one “potential” feature of Xojo is essential to you, just move to another language because it will take years before it is actually usable/stable in Xojo.
The big problem when coming late to the party is you better bring some flowers for the hostess.
It seems at last that Xojo has understood the need to use consistent language across platforms, and that includes having the same features between controls. Especially such a potentially critical control as HTMLViewer.
There is no reason why methods and properties available in the desktop version should be refused to mobile developers. Especially when they are actually readily available.
That said, I have indeed been forced to move to a better language for my iOS project, and will not look back. I simply wish Android won’t discourage the same way Xojo users.

I’ve heard this from some more and hope Xojo for Android will just not be too little too late. If that would be the future, then I encourage the team to focus on Xojo Web rather than Android.
If Xojo pivoted to using Cordova to target Android and iOS there’d be a lot more overlap with Xojo Web.
@Daniel Taylor are you referring to your commercial jQuery control or (by the sounds) a pseudo jQuery generic pkatform that was partially developed ?
The new web framework that is currently under development has been designed from the ground up using jQuery, Bootstrap and FuelUX and we are striving to make creating new controls much easier than it currently is (both for us and WebSDK users).
@Daniel Taylor thanks. I’m interested in finding out more about your base class and the process for glue code using it. I’ve written a simple control already so have a half decent understanding. What’s my best course of action .?
That was my train of thought when i asked the question above. Thanks again!
Also I am SO looking forward to Web2.0 I cant even tell you. Im eventually going to run out of other projects and start a rebuild of my web interfaces from scratch. I hope Web2.0 is available before I reach that point
I actually use a similar technique in B4A to obtain things that simply don’t exist in the native app.
James sendman is there any example of how one can effectively use a javascipt library for performing e.g a t-test in a webapp? That could be used as a demo for any user who will try to use any such a library…
Michel, so you mean that from the thousands javascipt libraries only some can be use within Xojo for developing windows or ios or web apps?
