Shake It! by Markus Winter
You know how when you enter an incorrect password on the Mac the dialog will shake to show you it’s wrong? Markus has figured out how to do that with pure Xojo.
Maps Part 9 – Putting GPS Data on the Map by Markus Winter
This time Markus helps a reader by showing how to plot GPS coordinates on a map.
Application Instance by Christian Schmitz
