In recent days, participating in TOF has become incredibly infuriating for me.
There’s the post about the HTMLViewer and the App Sandbox, you’ll see that the solution which I took the time to figure out, write about and share, doesn’t work in the DesktopControls dumbness.
What makes it worse, is the reason I created the solution in the first place. Is because the feedback I filed to get Xojo to use this API (you know so it can work) was ignored in favor of self-sabotage and by now has probably been auto-closed, because it only “affects a small number of users” and is over 2 years old.
I then see someone else trying to use code I shared to center a window, but failing because they too are using DesktopControls.
I realized that getting angry over things like this isn’t worth my time. It only hurts me. Xojo have made it abundantly clear that if you don’t like API 2.0 / DesktopControls, there’s the door. I really must listen and let go of the pain and frustration that’s been caused by their actions over the last two years.
Sigh… Thanks for providing a place where I can say things like this and not be insta-branded as a Troll and banned, I’m going to start self medicating by removing myself from what’s causing me pain.
As several people have asked, I have no intention of abandoning App Wrapper at this moment. if I am forced to change (it is not an update) to DesktopControls, I will assess how worth the time is versus sales at that point.
I will be withdrawing the Ohanaware App Kit and some of the other solutions I’ve created for Xojo that are not compatible with DesktopControls.
