XojoApp Components
for Xojo Developers

Reduce Programming Cost and Schedule for Desktop and iOS Apps

Henderson, NV USA - Feb 24, 2017 - Excel Software introduced XojoApp iOS 1.0 and XojoApp Desktop 4.1 for Xojo programmers. These pure Xojo code components require no plugins and can be used in almost any programming project.

XojoApp Desktop 4.1 is an updated version of the previously named RbApp product for use in Mac and Windows desktop applications. It includes enhancements to the Grid control to apply custom formats to cell values plus new tutorials, sample projects and User Guide. XojoApp Desktop supports Xojo 2013 through 2017 for both 32-bit and 64-bit apps.

XojoApp iOS 1.0 is a component library for iOS apps created in Xojo. Using the familiar Xojo language and IDE gives developers a big productivity boost when migrating desktop applications to iOS. Some foundation classes and functions are substantially different or missing for the iOS platform. XojoApp iOS can ease the migration process by adding iOS classes and functions that mimic those available in the desktop environment.

For example, iosDate for iOS is functionally equivalent to Date for desktop applications. The String data type is replaced by Text for iOS. XojoApp iOS adds dozens of functions for Text to mimic those available for String. XojoApp iOS adds MsgBox, HttpGet and HttpPost functions. The iosObject2D and iosGroup2D collection of classes, together with the iosXojoDraw class largely replicates the vector desktop drawing environment on iOS.

  • RbGrid - Flexible, scaleable grid with powerful programming control
  • RbChart - Dynamic charts, graphs and tables with minimal programming
  • RbEdit - Large file text editing with undo, find, replace and print

XojoApp iOS has many of same components found in the Desktop editon including iosXojoGrid, iosXojoDraw, iosXojoPalette, iosXojoTextList and iosXojoXML. Desktop applications created with Xojo Desktop are easier to port to iOS using XojoApp iOS.
