well i was checking in random

which are not bugs
then you deleted them from the list,
so you’re currently checking them one by one ? :wink:

No. But if he get’s that he made a mistake he corrects it immediately. Like it should be.

Originally I opened feedback and set my list to show open reports
I copied that list
and posted it
Someone else pointed out the list included ones marked fixed
So I went & did it again using a slightly different order of what I did in feedback and it gave me a slightly different list (why I have no idea)
So I edited and reported the list to me correct

That list IS only reports I have either submitted or signed on to
I’m far from alone with such large lists

That’s a lot of issues.

This is where NOT having a publicly open list that anyone can see is a hindrance

Someone should make a Xojo equivalent of Open Radar

yes but that’s mostly IDE bugs,
the end user doesn’t care about the IDE

Bugs are bugs, please don’t derail this thread with excuses. We know you love Xojo and that’s great. Please don’t derail anything criticizing Xojo, this isn’t the official forum.

no the “end user” [the person using the APP created with Xojo] doesn’t care… they don’t care about Xojo bugs, be they IDE or otherwise… to them a bug is in the APP they are running, and THAT is the pervue of the developer.

Who DOES care about Xojo bugs… ALL bugs including the IDE is the developer, as it is he/she that has to expend extra time and effort to compensate for things that should NOT be issues

Mostly…43% (117) aren’t IDE bugs or to put it another way, 57% are bugs in the product people interact with every day and 43% are there to mess with your product.


The saddest bugs are the obsolete ones:

1.5 years later the bug still is open.

Totally agree Beatrix, there’s a lot of stale cases which doesn’t help things. If you click the Status: Reviewed at the top you can ask for the case to be closed, I think this shows up more obviously for Robin (and others) to see.

i checked this one yestarday, because i was not sure i undestand it properly, but I did.
you even posted a video, you like posting bugs !

honestly, this is far it can gets to the definition of bugs, maybe not even a quircks. plus i’ve seen this behaviour elsewhere, maybe even in my apps (a rounding problem?) whatever

maybe you expect too much from a company like xojo inc.
xojo inc will NEVER have PERFECT native ide behavior because xojo inc is not Apple or Microsoft.

and on windows side what are the concurrent of xojo ? is delphi or else still alive ? except B4


No fishing for me today, another thread getting derailed.

a) Delphi has more customers than Xojo and makes a turnaround of more than 27 Million Dollar. That is much more than Xojo,inc has. So I guess that discussion is ended at that point

b) a programming language which has big errors in math is not usable at all. One thing a language and a compiler has to be able to do is math

c) B4J, Java, C++ are all still alive and quite bigger

No one expects perfect
They do expect that reported reproducible bugs, ones that should be the easiest to identify because the situation CAN be reproduced, ARE fixed

Thats not happening very quickly

Instead we get renamed desktop controls, renamed events and properties breaking years of code
