JOSE JAVIER COLUMBIE
Welcome Back Everyone,
I am glad to say the XAFers Community Standup is official. I had a lot of fun (and learned a lot) discussing about XAF, XPO and more. Hope to see you guys there on the next one and if you have any topic will like us to cover, please feel free to send us an email.
We have great news this week: Xafers Training is making Getting Started with XPO and Xamarin completely free for a limited time and Pluralsight will be free the whole month of April. I guess is time to skill up.
Every day we are closer to XAF Blazor so hang in there.
World is still crazy and scary so XAFers stay safe and until next week, XAF out!
XAFers Community Standup - April 9th 2020 - First Meeting - YouTube
And we did it, first community standup completed. XAF, Xenial, XPO Web API, a little bit of Blazor and more...
Join us the second Thursday of every month for our community standup covering everything that is going on with XAF, XPO, Blazor and more. There is no agenda, no formality, no dress code required, let's just talk about what we love and share our experiences.
XAF Virtual Assistant v0.0.1
Please go and test the XAF Virtual Assistant that Dennis set up and give him feedback. At least for the most frequent questions it can be a good tool to free their support team and maybe find the answers quickly.
Security System with Entity Framework Core.
From their readme: This example demonstrates how to access data protected by the Security System from a Console application with Entity Framework Core.
PropertyEditor.NullText Property | eXpressApp Framework
There are several tickets asking for this specific feature. Want to specify the text when the property editor value is null? Well, is coming on version 20.1
WinForms - Tips & Tricks, March 2020
A lot of interesting tickets here. From Progress bar gradients to How to highlight WinForms Grid Control rows. We always follow these tickets to get a sense of what can we add to our XAF apps.
XAF Web – Add CSS Style
Simple request from one of our students: How to change the color of the header bar in our XAF Web application?
XAF - Blazor Demo Update with User Authentication and Permission Management
Is almost here. A beta of XAF Blazor is coming and the Main Demo is looking pretty sleek. If you saw our video about the EAP you know that the security system was not completely implemented. In their own words: In this iteration, we focused our efforts on user authentication and group authorization features (UI). Check them out.
Xamarin Offline Data Sync with XPO (XAF Backend) - YouTube
If you have implemented your own offline data sync solution you know how cumbersome they can be. With XPO Offline Data Sync it becomes, after setup, a two lines solution. Pull and push and voila :)
XPO SqlDependency Notifications - YouTube
Use at your own risk but really cool XPO feature about database change notifications. A modification in the database triggers an event that allows to implement custom business logic on our app. Neat right?
Tips And Tricks
How to use the visual query builder in XAF - YouTube
Just a quick video showing how to display and use the visual query builder in a XAF application. This might come in handy for some power users to create their own query, and save them for a later reuse.
Model Editor for .NET Core 3+ WinForms Projects (CTP) | DevExpress Support
It is finally here! The Model Editor for .NET Core 3+. It is a standalone Model Editor tool that runs as a separate process and draws itself inside the Visual Studio frame. I know a lot of people was asking for this so let's test it and give the DevExpress some feedback.
Important Changes to the DevExpress.Data and Other Assemblies for .NET Core 3, .NET Standard, .NET Framework Apps (v20.1)
Summary of the changes made to the DevExpress.Data assemblies for .NET Core 3 (WinForms & WPF) and .NET Framework apps. Most probably it should not affect you but is good information to have.
Add to your Calendar
Next session will be April 11 and we are having for a limited time the course: Getting Started with XPO and Xamarin completely free so don't miss this opportunity to learn how to get your XPO based application in the mobile arena.
