Release 24 Now Available

GraffitiSuite Release 24 is now available for both Web and Desktop! While Release 23 focused on adding new classes to our line-up, we primarily tackled issues with this release, fixing many bugs that hadn’t made the cut in the last release. We’ve also completely rebuilt GraffitiHTMLEditor for Desktop, and added a LOT of functionality that all customers have been asking for.

Coming Soon for Desktop

So Anthony has been working really hard on a new class for Desktop, and it’s looking awesome! He’s looking back over years of customer emails, support tickets, and forums posts to try and create exactly what everyone wants…a GREAT grid control for desktop. Don’t believe me? Check this out…


Now, it’s not quite ready for release yet, but some more testers would be nice. If you have a current subscription to GraffitiSuite Desktop, just use the contact form on the GraffitiSuite home page to get involved! Break the class, suggest features, help Anthony make a truly awesome Xojo Desktop Grid.

Even more new features to make it the best yet…

Release 20 Coming Soon

Release 20 is coming along nicely, so how about an update of what’s included?

GraffitiSuite Web Edition is the primary focus of this release, with nearly 50 changes in so far. Of those, 5 are completely new products, 4 are added functionality, and 36 are bug fixes. Special attention has been paid to dialogs and resizing in this release, so we’ve rewritten the WebPage of the demo to add the ability to test that functionality.

GraffitiSuite Desktop Edition will also see some love in this release with a fix for Scaling Factor on non-Cocoa targets (we now actually get a scaling factor on Windows, as well). You’ll also see a new addition in this release that has actually been worked on periodically for the last few years.

We have no set release date, but we’re working to get it ready as fast as we can since it includes some compatibility fixes for Xojo Web 2014r3.1

Have You Seen This?

Have You Seen This?
We’ve gotten reports over the last few years about project analysis from the IDE. The main one being that the IDE will drop a scan if it hits an error in an encrypted class. We reported this some time ago to RS, but, if I remember correctly, they said it was by design. So, when you see this…

You need to open a new project and force an analyze error. You then need to change what is reported. The main ones are the Unused Parameters and Unused Variables. Anything else, if reported by Analyze about GraffitiSuite, would need to be reported.

So, how do you force an analyze error in a new project? Well, it’s really easy. We’ll start-up a new desktop project, add a class with Canvas as the super, and add the following code anywhere except the Paint event.

Dim g As Graphics = me.Graphics

From there, just go to Project > Analyze, and you’ll get the analysis results screen. The button on the top-left of that tab allows you to select what is reported by the Analyze engine.
