Like in months past, we’ve compiled a list of interesting support tickets in this month’s Tips & Tricks blog post. We’d also like to remind active Universal subscribers that v19.2 Beta 1 can be downloaded today. If time permits, please install v19.2 Beta 1 and share your feedback with us – we’d love to know what you think of our most recent build.

Community News

  • The eXpand Framework, managed by Apostolis Bekiaris, released almost 10 new free and low-dependency modules for XAF since we wrote about it in July: I want to highlight the RefreshView and GridListEditor packages: the first refreshes a View periodically based on the Application Model's option and the second contains GridListEditor extensions. All the modules are small, include documentation, and ship with Azure unit tests. Please check them out and let us know what you think.
  • A new version of XAFARI with full support for XAF v19.1.6 is available (DevExpress updates are slightly ahead of XAFARI versions). As you may know, Galaktika Soft has been providing paid reusable XAF modules with documentation and support services for more than 5 years.
  • Joche Ojeda published a YouTube video and GitHub sample that demonstrate how a custom IDataStore implementation can be used to feed a Xamarin Forms application with data from an XAF application using the same XPO data model.
