  • Hiding a Picture in a Picture (Part 1) by Eugene Dakin. Steganography—the processing of hiding data inside a picture—is a fun science with practical applications. In this new series, Eugene explores doing this with Xojo.
  • Bundle It by Marc Zeedar. MacOS has a cool feature that lets you turn folders of content into a single file called a bundle (or package). Xojo makes this easy. Marc shows you how.
  • PDF Pie Charts by Stefanie Juchmes. With the MBS Plugins, you can not only create impressive pie charts, but you can embed them with full vector detail into your PDFs.
  • Xojo Jigsaw by Marc Zeedar. For years Marc wanted to make his own virtual jigsaw puzzle app, but didn’t know how to go about it. Now he figured out to use Xojo’s new clipping path feature to create a really cool game!

Plus: Topics such as ODBC, programmatically creating desktop controls, debugging tips, and much more!
