I Wish I Knew How To… Program the Canvas Control with Xojo Desktop is the latest book of Eugene Dakin in his excellent I Wish I Knew How To… series.

If you ever wondered how stuff is done with the canvas control in Xojo, this is the book you need to have on your virtual shelf. In his well known swift (no pun intended) style, Eugene has written the reference manual for you. Alwaysbusy’s Corner did some humble contributions to the more advanced topics.

For the novice Xojo user, you quickly can get started and learn about the basics of graphics. Step by step you learn more and more when you move through the more advanced topics. This 400 page volume covers a lot of interesting chapters and includes a lot of useful examples with source code:

Topics included in the book:

Chart Fundamentals
2D Objects
Gaussian Blur
Building basic controls
and there are two games with step-by-step code explanations to help you build your own.

So head over to Eugene’s Personal Website and get your copy. Also check out his other books in the series on topics like SQLite, XML, PostgreSQL, Office etc…

B4i Update: Looks so cool!

Can’t wait to play with this. When you’re used to work with B4A, this looks/feels so natural. I bet the learning curve will be absolutely flat.

…Note that the device is not connected with a cable to any computer.
The debugger is almost fully working. You can put breakpoints, monitor the variables and run watch expressions…

Well done Erel!
