Changes (34 cases)

Case Area Description
46557 Framework » All Added DragItem.MoveFirst so you can move to the first item of a DragItem so that you can repeatedly iterate through a DragItem that contains multiple items.
46575 Framework » All Listbox now has a new event to customize the disclosure widget: Event Listbox.DisclosureWidgetPaint(g As Graphics, row As Integer, ByRef x As Integer, ByRef y As Integer, ByRef width As Integer, ByRef height As Integer) As Boolean Invoked for hierarchical ListBoxes when the framework needs to draw the disclosure triangle for a folder row. This is invoked after CellBackgroundPaint and before CellTextPaint. The x, y, width and height parameters: • Default to the coordinates for drawing the built-in widget • These coordinates are also used for hit testing to determine if a mouse down should toggle the row's expanded state. • Are ByRef so the user can specify the location of the rectangle used for hit testing when drawing their own widget, if for instance the hit area is smaller than the drawn widget. • Setting width or height to zero will completely hide the triangle and no hit testing will be done. • Returning False causes the framework widget to be drawn. • Returning True prevents the framework from drawing its own disclosure widget, signaling that the event has performed all of the necessary drawing. • Changing the Width parameter will offset the graphic object that is provided in the following CellTextPaint event by the same offset. i.e. if the supplied Width is 10, but the code changes it to 5 the graphic object in the CellTextPaint event would be offset by 5 pixels to the left.
45204 Framework » Web You can now enclose text in <raw></raw> tags in the App.DisconnectMessage property to send unparsed HTML to the page.
45815 Framework » Web Web apps deployed to Xojo Cloud now only listen on localhost.
45909 Framework » Windows Updated printing to use the latest Direct2D printing APIs (this improves text rendering and drawing), but requires Windows 7 with Platform Updates, otherwise it falls back to the old implementation of printing everything as one big picture.
46060 Framework » Windows HTMLViewer now uses CEF3 when WebKit is selected as the renderer (Windows).
46215 IDE When creating a new desktop project on Windows, the Supports HiDPI setting is enabled by default.

33960 IDE » Inspector Properties that are arrays will permit either a blank default OR NIL (both of which are perfectly legal for arrays. Any other value will be refused and a suitable warning shown.
45642 IDE » Inspector The List of iOS controls a constraint can be relative to is now sorted.
46453 IDE » Inspector Tabbing out of the method editor signature panes puts focus in the code editor.

On macOS this may be tabbing out of the scope popup (if full keyboard access is on) or from the return type field (if full keyboard access is off).
46682 IDE » Language Reference The Find command short cut returns focus to the filter field in the Doc Viewer. CueText is set to “filter” which is consistent with navigator (and more descriptive of what it does).
34430 IDE » Layout Editor Controls draw disabled when not enabled (they lighten by 35%).
45897 IDE » Layout Editor Made it so that when you subclass a control then any text font and text size set in Inspector Behavior will be used rather than overwritten by the Xojo Layout Preferences font values. Note that this does alter normal behavior and that the subclassed value basically has to be overridden in the Inspector Behavior as it will never be overridden by the preferences values.
46514 IDE » Layout Editor iOS project now refer to devices by size and not specific iPhone models.
2468 IDE » Miscellaneous macOS ONLY - Alphas and betas will be badged in the dock.
5252 IDE » Miscellaneous Since the fonts “System” and “SmallSystem” imply a size when selected as the font for they will use “size 0” - their default size.

35380 IDE » Miscellaneous Checks for Update to Cocoa and Bundle ID are only done on Mac. The Bundle ID is also checked if you try to build for Mac from another platform.
36835 IDE » Miscellaneous Xojo Update dialog button now says “Restart” when an update is installed making it clearer what is going to occur.
37284 IDE » Miscellaneous When saving an iOS project, the views retain the orientation and device settings so when you reopen the project the layout is as you left it.
39698 IDE » Miscellaneous The code that checks for macOS issues when opening a project (such as a missing Bundle ID) now only checks when the project is opened on macOS.
45676 IDE » Navigator Internally a regex is used to break the filter up.
45678 IDE » Navigator When filtering by type, type is treated as “starts with” much like the filter itself is.
29981 IDE » Project Editor You can now convert multiple selected members to shared members at once.

47213 Remote Debugger Stub 64-bit stubs support having 32 or 64 bit apps sent to them. When you use a 64-bit stub the IDE settings for that target are used to select whether a 32 or 64 bit build is sent. Note: Because 64-bit debugging is not yet available on Windows there is no 64-bit remote debugging on Windows and only 32 bit builds will be sent to remote debuggers.
47245 Remote Debugger Stub Remote debugger desktop version is now 2.1.

New Items (7 cases)

Case Area Description
35156 Framework » Web Text that will be drawn in the browser as HTML can now be surrounded by <raw></raw> tags to temporarily disable HTML parsing. For example, you could bold just a single word with this code: <xmp>Label1.Text = &quot;This is a line with <raw>bold</raw> text in it.&quot;</xmp> Controls that work with this: WebLabel, WebRadioGroup, WebListBox, WebToolbarButton, WebToolbarContainer, WebToolbarMenu, WebSegmentedControl.
39702 IDE » Build Automation IDECommunicator now supports asynchronous communications. When using the new protocol, script and build errors are now returned in JSON structures.
