Mastering the Dialog Box 1 – Understanding the Workflow
Remove the mystery behind dialog box coding. Most Xojo desktop apps present and retrieve information using dialog boxes, but the handling of dialog box component interactions can often become way too complex, resulting in a “spaghetti code” maintenance nightmare. Adopting a document object model view strategy reduces the need for convoluted coding. This structured approach simplifies dynamic updates of controls, localization, and modal/modeless behavior.

Mastering the Dialog Box 2 – Advanced Concepts
Continuing from the first Dialog Box session, you will learn more advanced concepts, such as protecting a dialog box from being invoked multiple times, updating control values in real time based on user interaction, sharing code, splash screens and more!
