If you like xDev in print, now's your chance. I'm a little late (long story) this year, but I'm now accepting pre-orders for xDev Archive 14—a huge 578-page printed book of all of last year's issues.

The best part is that, as always, pre-orders are 25% off, and since existing subscribers also get a 25% discount, you can combine the two offers and get the new book for 50% off!

However, the pre-order discount is only available through March 17, 2017, so you'll have to hurry. Place your order today:


In This Issue

It's hard to describe this issue, so I went with "Xojo Power Tricks" on the cover. We've got a mishmash of treats for you!

Christian Schmitz goes into a deep dive on delegates, WebFile, and WebPicture.

Sam Rowlands shows how to get the most out of Xojo's Popupmenu (as usual, he focuses mostly on Mac-based declares).

JC Cruz explores "Data-oriented windows," which uses the MVC (model-view-controller) paradigm.

Finally, I write about a little app I made that lets me see a live snapshot of my security cameras on my computer.

In our columns, Paul explains implicit instances and has a tip for Windows users, Scott writes about XFS, and Craig continues his talk on MDM. Enjoy!
