MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo Plugins in version 21.4

Nickenich, Germany - (September 7th, 2021) – MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS Xojo Plugins 21.4 for macOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin collection currently available for Xojo. MBS Xojo Plugins have been updated and now includes over 2900 classes and 73,000 documented features, and the versatile plugins have gained more new functions:

We updated our WordFileMBS class to substitute any text in the word file with Substitute method or check if some text is there with Contains method.

In this release we add thread pooling for Windows. This highly benefits some methods using threads like PerformMT in CURLSMBS to recycle threads and lower the memory footprint.

For Windows we added a WinMouseFilterMBS class to universally get mouse events for all controls in your applications. Our WebView2ControlMBS control to use Microsoft Edge/Chrome browser control got new properties for preferences, e.g. to decide whether password fields auto fill.

Our DynaPDF plugin got a DeleteOCGFromDisplayTree method to delete optional content. The GetInIsTaggedPDF method can tell you whether your import PDF is a tagged one. For our Graphics.DrawString integration in PDF we added better code to draw text condensed. Finally we enhanced our tracing feature to append to a log file.

For iOS we got a new SharingPanelMBS class to show the sharing panel and e.g. post multiple pictures to photos application or send several files via AirDrop. We improved NSViewMBS class for iOS (using UIView of course) and fixed issues with submitting to the App Store.

We added FieldExists method for SQLCommandMBS class, the FindByteMBS method for MemoryBlock taking an array of bytes to look for and we added HEAD as verb for SetupAWS and SetupOAuth method in CURLSMBS class. The new isWindows11 function in SystemInformationMBS module may be helpful in the future, WKPreferencesMBS got more properties and NSComboBoxControlMBS class got working keydown events.

Finally we updated CURL library to version 7.78.0, DynaPDF to and SQLAPI to 5.1.5.
