Is there an easy way to use SF symbols in Xojo ?
Do you use MBS Xojo Plugins?
We recently added imageWithSystemSymbolName method for NSImageMBS class to query picture for a symbol name.
Well, there is no plugin SDK for iOS in Xojo 2020r1.
For iOS, you can use iOSImage.SystemImage to retrieve them.
You’ll definitely want Apple’s SF Symbols app if you don’t have it.
Thank you @Gavin_Smith.
In ImageView open method I just write
me.Image = iOSImage.SystemImage("pencil",me.Width, iOSImage.SystemImageWeights.Regular)
And it works fine!
This only works in iOS 13 and above so I use:
If System.Version >= “13” Then
customCell.SFSymbolsIcon.Image = iOSImage.SystemImage(“list.bullet”,0,iosimage.SystemImageWeights.Regular,SymbolColorGroup,Nil)
customCell.SFSymbolsIcon.Image = listicon
You can set the fallback image also in iOSImage.SystemImage. Then it’s ready for iOS Versions < iOS 13
@Martin_T sorry I don’t understood what you mean
Look here: https://docs.xojo.com/iOSImage.SystemImage
iOSImage.SystemImage(name as Text, size as Double, weight as iOSImage.SystemImageWeights = SystemImageWeights.Regular, templateColor as ColorGroup = Nil, fallbackTemplateImage as iOSImage = nil) As iOSImage
Retrieves an SF Symbol on iOS 13+ and optionally colorizes it with the option of supplying a fallback template image for older versions of iOS, which will also be colorized.
fallbackTemplateImage with an Static Image and it should work fine for < iOS 13.
Speaking of “optionally colorizes”, that currently doesn’t work.
I still assign a ColorGroup to it, in case it starts working in the future.
