Xojo Apps in the Windows Store

There will now be apps made with Xojo in the Windows Store. If you’d like, take a moment to share your Xojo-made apps in this thread. Be sure to include links so that people can check them out.

(post inspired by the one by Paul Lefebvre “Xojo Apps in the Mac App Store” that started the thread in the OS X channel)

Any font contains thousands of characters, easy to find and use with Char Menu. Click the little grey box in the corner of the screen or press Ctrl-Option, and a window pops up with over 300 Unicode pages at your disposal to pick from, at a size sufficient to really see how they look.

Click on any character, and it is sent to the current application like if it was typed on the keyboard. At the same time, it is copied to the clipboard.

Check Print’R

Check Print’R is a simple to use program that lets you write and print checks directly from your desk. Simply enter the name of the payee (made order to), the numeric amount, and voila! The spelled out amount is automatically generated. No need to write out complicated sentences.

The check is printed with at the bottom special MICR characters which will be used by banks for processing. So now your printed check can be used the same way as a pre-printed check.

Check Writer III

Check Writer III is a simple to use program that lets you write and print checks directly from your desk, together with their accompanying letter.

Same project file as Check Print’R. The word processing part is a Formatted Text Control.

https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh441c7

Both Check Print’R and Check Writer III are also popular apps in the Mac App Store.

Well Injection Estimator is a program which determines the theoretical injection rate of an Injection Well in the oilfield. This program allows ‘What-if’ questions to be asked such as:

  1. How much fluid can be injected if more perforations are added?
  2. ‘What if’ the Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP) were increased by 500 psi, then how much additional fluid can I inject?
  3. Will more viscous fluids change the injection rate? By how much?
  4. … and more

Different field units can also be used, as many countries use a blend of both Metric and Imperial units. A Screen Grab can be taken and saved on your computer as a PNG file that can be printed or used in reports.

Although this program is not a substitute for professionals with many years of experience, this quick and easy estimator provides another data point to be considered.

Hi

I was looking at the windows store Apps today, my first impression was that the store is not so up to date… old apps… , not always professional…

So I’m asking myself, is the Win App Store also an way to go ? is this profitable ? (because recently you can ‘migrate’ you win32 app to the App Store…) , I have a little app written in Xojo , but I’m confused about windows store… maybe its better to sell not in the store but sell it by google adv, Facebook…

Any suggestions ?

Regards,
P.

Create a new thread for this question. This thread is for people to list the apps they have in the Windows App Store.

«LehrerOffice Desktop» is being used by many teachers in the German speaking parts of Switzerland. The software helps for most administrative tasks of teachers. Official forms and certificates used in public schools of 16 cantons in Switzerland are allowed by the governments to be printed with LehrerOffice.
The application can be used by a single person writing the data to a file, used in teams connected to a local database or to a database hosting environment provided by Roth Soft AG.

The main desktop application «LehrerOffice Desktop» is available for macOS, Windows and Linux.
And there is quite some more available in the LehrerOffice ecosystem.

With «LehrerOffice Desktop» now being available in the Windows Store, teachers can continue using an essential desktop application on their upcoming Windows 10 S devices.

We just released SpeakerQue at http://speakercue.com

I hope it’s ok to post here, I didn’t see an option for Apps not in a Store…

SpeakerQue
SpeakerQue is a confidence monitor for professional producers and presenters.

What is a Confidence Monitor?
A Confidence Monitor is a computer display that faces the speaker, generally not visible to the audience, which displays information such as remaining time and information from the producer used to keep the speaker focused on their presentation.

SpeakerQue as a Confidence Monitor
SpeakerQue is designed to run on Mac or Windows where the producer controls what is displayed on the confidence monitor. Ideally, the producer would use a laptop with an external display with the Producer Window on the laptop display and the Presenter Window on the external display within view of the speaker.

SpeakerQue has settings for:

  • End Time
  • Display as Current Time or Countdown
  • Display Format
  • Color of Time, Background, Message
  • Remaining Minutes Optional Time Color and Flash
  • Message

do your application use any special controls for the listbox and combobox??? what version of windows are you using in the image above??

Since it’s a Windows Store application: Windows 10 :slight_smile:

There is no combobox in the ScreenShots. The filters on the top are standard PopupMenu’s.
The Module list (on the very left) is a standard Listbox (of course with CellTextPaint and CellBackgroundPaint to customize the look). The white Listbox in the main content are is another standard Listbox (default look). And the main “grid” (the “Table” with the alternate row colors, the blue divider line, …) is… just a Canvas (but as you can guess: it does quite some things) :wink:

So basically: it’s all you can do yourself with Xojo - no Plugin Controls visible here. And no 3rd party components.

And while we’re at it: what you’re seeing is not a TabPanel. It’s a PagePanel, with a Canvas above it - it draws the “Tabs” and clicking will just change the PagePanel’s .Value.

But let’s don’t hijack this thread - if you’re curious to know more about how this-and-that has been done (how how it can/could be done), then feel free to create a new topic. And let this one be about showing Xojo built applications that are available on the Windows Store.

Last year I submitted my first Xojo app called Base64UI to the Windows store. It’s a tool to encode and decode any file or data to and from base64. It also allows to calculate various hash values like MD5, SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512. Compared to most of the hundret other base64 tools around, Base64UI can perfectly deal with binary files. It also tries to detect the type of a file when decoding base64 text. Base64UI is also available for MacOS.

My second projekt is called MP3 Audiobook Tagger and it’s a specialized app to manage ID3 tags for audio books. Compared to the classic ID3 tag tools this app helps to have consistent tags and file/chapter numbering, which is essential for audio books. MP3 Audiobook Tagger is avalable for MacOS also.

Both apps are available in german and english language.
