RbApp 4.0 Software Components

for Xojo Developers

Reduce Programming Cost and Schedule for Desktop Applications

Henderson, NV USA - Jan 14, 2016 - Excel Software introduced RbApp 4.0 for Xojo programmers. These pure Xojo code components require no plugins. RbApp is used to build Mac or Windows desktop applications with Xojo 2013, 2014, 2015 or later. It supports both 32-bit and 64-bit applications including both Carbon and Cocoa frameworks.

RbApp 4.0 adds new enhancements to the powerful RbGrid and RbChart components to create flexible programmatic or human controlled grids, tables, charts and graphs. The RbGrid component adds cell range selection properties and methods to easily implement copy, paste, undo and other functions across a range of cells.

RbChart makes it easy to create dynamic charts and graphs from programmatically controlled definition and data files. A new area bar chart was added to the supported chart types. Charts can be resizable with programmatic control over variables, axis values, colors, fonts, styles, keys and other presentation parameters.

RbApp 4.0 adds new source code sample applications to demonstrate new RbGrid and RbChart features. Drop RbApp into any new or existing Xojo application in minutes. A developer can reduce development time and cost by eliminating the need to design, write and test common application requirements from scratch. RbApp has been used for over a decade in hundreds of commercial applications running on millions of computers.
