From Anthony: Xojo IDE Scripting

Background

Today I had the need to develop a method by which GraffitiSuite users could determine what version of GraffitiSuite a particular product was taken from. Normally I go through the rigmarole of telling them to follow these steps:

  1. Open the demo project
  2. Expand the App object

News is Back!

A couple of years ago, with the move to social media for most of our public communication, we decided to essentially kill the News section of the site. Now — with the current state of the community (and social media), and our revived effort to put out newsletters regularly — we’ve decided to resurrect this section.

Our News section will become a place for announcements, insights, and other community-related topics. We look forward to informing you!
