Full text of article...

Soon after you read this, I should be on my way to Germany for the Monkeybread Xojo Conference in Munich. I had a wonderful time last year in Berlin, and traveling in Europe afterward, so I'm doing it again—only this time I'm staying for a whole month!

Attempting to work remotely and run a business while traveling is an interesting problem. I'm not sure I have it all worked out, so bear with me if my responses are slower than usual. Hopefully things will work fine, but you never know. Whatever happens, I'll learn and I'll pass on any wisdom I gain in a future xDev article.

Last Chance for Omegabundle

The current edition of the Omegabundle (http://www.omegabundle.net) is ending this month, so if you haven't taken advantage of the deal this is your last chance!

In This Issue

We have an unusual mix of topics this time. Sam Rowlands continues his Mojave Dark Mode series, as does JC Cruz with part two of his controller module feature.

But then we have some fresh perspectives. Paul Budd writes about how to use Microsoft Excel as an ODBC database. That means you can talk to a spreadsheet with SQL!

Then we've got a hack from Ulrich Bogun and Martin Trippensee, who've figured out a way to get more out of Xojo's built-in reporting. It's still a work in progress, but a fascinating approach.

In our columns, Paul shows how to connect to databases, Scott shows how to add HavIBeenPwned password checking to your own apps, and Craig discusses hierarchies in a data mart. For Beginner's Corner, I respond to a reader and explain about using progress bars. Enjoy!
