Xojo Installer Fix by Marc Zeedar
Have you noticed that when you install a new version of Xojo, it doesn’t copy over your previously installed plugins and scripts? That can cause things to not work as you expect if you don’t remember to fix it manually. This simple app solves that problem.
Lessons from Legos by Marc Zeedar
In January, Marc worked on a retro Lego project and the experience prompted a lot of thoughts about the simlarities between Legos and programming.
Xojo Wordle by Marc Zeedar
Wordle’s a simple word-guessing game, but sometimes it can be a frustrating case of dumb luck. Marc wondered if Xojo could help, so he took up the challenge to write an app to help solve Wordles.
Exploring Steganography, Part 5 by Eugene Dakin
In this conclusion to his series, Eugene shows how to retrieve hidden text from a picture, as requested by xDev readers.
Plus: Topics such as running Xojo on Windows 11 Arm on Apple Silicon, Attributes, MBS XML, Group By function, and more!
