Excerpt of article text...

Continuing on from my article last issue on "Adding the Apple About Box," I'm going to demonstrate how to get at more OS level functionality in this article. This time I'm going to cover a bunch of window tricks that I've learned over the years. These tricks can not only reduce maintenance of code (as the OS now provides the functionality), but also will make Xojo apps feel more consistent when compared to other applications.

The tricks I'm going to cover are as follows:

  • OS Managed Window menu

  • Full Screen menu item

  • Adding a document icon to document windows

  • Auto saving and restoring of window positions
