30. Oct 2015 - FlowLayout 2.0 for Xojo

Specialized layout management plugin control for Xojo

The FlowLayout plugin helps you create a user interface design where horizontal layout of the controls is sensitive for localization as well as platform differences.

Example where you design your user interface like this:

 

When we localize this to for example Icelandic then normally the result would be something like this:

Notice how there was not enough space for the translation of Zip.

When using the flow layout the user interface would adjust to look like this:

Another example:

When localized this design would normally go like this:

But if using the flow layout the user interface adjusts like this:

In same way the FlowLayout can help you ease the pain of platform differences when dealing with user interface that is sensitive to horizontal space. For example the space the text would have taken on Linux systems almost certainly would not be the same, but the FlowLayout handles that.

Supported on:

  • Mac OS X (32 bit and 64 bit)
  • Windows (32 bit and 64 bit)
  • Linux (32 bit and 64 bit)
  • Linux ARM v7 compatible systems such as Raspberry PI 2

Full versions are encrypted for registered users. You need the Registrator Application together with a valid serial number to decrypt them.

Demo versions are free for everyone, they have all the same features as the full versions. Demo versions will display a demo message box in compiled applications.

Open source support classes come as they are, without support. Most of the open source classes come from 3rd party authors. All of the open source classes on this page extend one or more of the controls from us that are posted on this page.
