xDevLibrary Announces New Xojo Beginner's Collection Ebook

June 15, 2020 – xDevLibrary is delighted to announce the release of a massive new book targeted at beginning Xojo users. The “Xojo Beginner’s Collection” is a 900-page ebook that gathers 17 years of xDev Magazine beginner columns into one volume.

Just about every issue of xDev Magazine has included a column called Beginner’s Corner. In that column we go in-depth on how to use a particular feature of Xojo, explore basic programming concepts, or give tips and instructions specifically geared toward beginners in programming or new to Xojo.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • basic controls
  • canvas
  • computed properties
  • contextual menus
  • control arrays
  • data structures
  • dates
  • dictionaries
  • drag and drop
  • encapsulation
  • folderitems
  • JSON
  • loops
  • OOP
  • printing
  • ProgressBar
  • Refactoring
  • Scope
  • strings
  • styled text
  • Threads
  • timers
  • toolbars
  • transparency
  • typecasting
  • unit testing
  • windows
  • XojoScript
  • and much more!

We’ve gathered nearly two decades of those columns into a single book of over 900 pages and almost 100 demo projects. If you’re new to Xojo this is a terrific resource that goes into much more detail than the often-cryptic Xojo help files.

The ebook is in PDF, EPUB, and Mobi (Kindle) formats and can be purchased for $24.99 via GumRoad for instant delivery (http://gum.co/TERSK).

Note: This book is included as part of the 2020 Omegabundle, a terrific collection of top Xojo add-ons (http://www.omegabundle.net).
