Ohanaware App Kit 1.0.6 is released, putting some serious attention on getting your Xojo Made Mac Application ready for macOS Big Sur and beyond.

The Ohanaware App Kit 2020 is a collection of declares and convenience classes that Ohanaware has created over the last decade or so. Which we’ve then wrapped up into this kit to help other Xojo developers create better Mac Apps, through access to functions and technology that it’s possible out of the box.

New in OAK 1.0.6

  • Fixed a regression in the OWSourceList, that was causing the highlight to be in the wrong place when content was scrolled.

  • Added NSUserDefaultsDictionaryRepresentation - Gets all the options from NSUserDefaults as a NSDictionary.

  • Modified drawAlternatingRows (again) - The closest to the Apple’s Dark Mode yet (but it doesn’t handle “desktop tinting”;)

  • Added a new Control Animation paradigm to NSControlAnimator, which greatly simplifies control animation.

  • Added NSDictionary.count - To the convenience class for reading dictionaries.

  • OWSegmentedControl.selected( index ) - convenience function for get/set the selected state of a button.

  • OWSegmentedControl.helpTag( index ) - convenience function for get/set the helptag of a button.

  • OWSegmentedControl.tag( index ) - Allows each button to have a ‘tag’.

  • OWSegmentedControl.controlTag - A ‘tag’ for the Segmented Control.

  • Fixed OWPushButton.controlSize

  • Fixed OWCheckBox.controlSize

  • Fixed OWPopupMenu.controlSize

  • Added NSTextViewshowFindIndicatorForRange - Displays the standard Apple “Find” highlight.

  • Added NSCursorDragCopyCursor - Gets the Drag Copy cursor.

  • Added NSCursorDragLinkCursor - Gets the Drag Link cursor.

  • Added NSCursorOperationNotAllowedCursor - Gets the “Can’t Drag here” cursor.

  • Added NSCursorPop - Releases the current cursor.

  • Added NSCursorPush - Sets a cursor as the current cursor.

  • Added OWDropRing - A custom control to aid with drawing the correct Drag Highlights on macOS.

Just wanted to bump this up in case anyone was meaning to order the Omega Bundle before the deal ends. I went on a trip and almost forgot to order it. Now just have to wait for a deal on a Xojo Pro license :).


Black Friday may be a chance or Programmer’s day on 12th or 13th September.

I used to jump onto “good deals”, but now I think most deals are overrated.

If you don’t have a need to compile then that 20% is equivalent to 73 days that you save.

In 2018 I resisted updating and have so far saved nearly two licenses, while a lot of people upgrading in 2019 wonder what they got for their money.

So the rule in my book now is: buy it when you need it.

Even though it is hard at times as I’m a sucker for “bargains” (and I have a harddisk full of hardly used bundles to prove it - glad I kicked the habit and by now I rather buy a piece of quality software when I need it).

Yeah, I am hoping for Programmer’s day. Was looking repeatedly over Labor Day Weekend in the US, even though they have not offered a sale in the past.

I’m looking to replace some Python code that I have in the cloud for API integrations and wanted to do some testing on hosted Linux VPS - so I’m kind of itching to be able to compile code for those purposes. I want to get the Pro license because I would like to be able to hit all of the targets and I would like to support Xojo’s development efforts (even though I still would like a deal haha :smile: )

Been there, done that - and still do it from time to time - but have gotten much better in recent years.

Thanks for participating!

We are wrapping it up today. The store link will remain active for a few hours more and, since we are based just outside of Portland ,will turn it off after we get our afternoon exercises rioting and burning down buildings :wink:



:thinking: … hmmmm, not sure what “the community” objected to … after all nobody seems to have objected to Lynn’s poor taste in jokes: “after we get our afternoon exercises rioting and burning down buildings”

… so I’m unsure if it was “flagged by the community” for being anti-lying-orange-weasels or for annoying a certain admin person at Xojo Inc by repeatedly asking for nicer emojis???

Anyone can give me a hint? :wink:

P.S. #NZHellHole is really trending on Twitter :joy: … Go :kiwi_fruit::kiwi_fruit::kiwi_fruit:! :+1:

My thanks to Dana for changing the emoji display - takes a little while to come through as the browser caches them (so if you are in a hurry delete the browser cache).

The 2020 bundle is history. Thanks Lynn for organizing it and the customers for pushing a lot of money in the add-on businesses.


And I’d like to thank all of the developers who included their products in the bundle. This is an excellent set of tools - and there is so much content there that it will keep me busy for a long time. I’m still collecting up all of the software and reading through all the documentation.

Thanks everyone for supporting Xojo development with your excellent tools and plugins.


I bought it and I’m so glad I did. Some really superb tools and the developers are always willing to help and offer guidance.
