I’ve been playing a lot lately with Xojo’s Web 2. As I’ve mentioned in another post, surely there are glitches and a lot of room for improvement, but overall is starting to be really nice. I especially like using custom cell renderers, not sure if they were there in the previous version, but kudos.
The thing is, as a web developer, I’m trying to push the limits of it a bit further, and convince other colleagues and friends Xojo could replace nowadays Frankenstein’s web stacks.
There is something I’m struggling to replicate with Xojo, which is showing a list of dynamic height components like, for example, Twitter web version, or just a quick Google search results clone. It’s pretty common in web apps.
As Xojo places everything with fixed positioning (which is nice most of the time, no complains), it feels like going against current when trying to use the proposed Flex option. I could surely do CSS/JS sorcery, but I would like to know if there is a better Xojo-way to create these kind of layouts.
Hope you have a nice week, thanks.
