Rapid Services Updated. New RapidListBox and RapidCheckBox

Version 1.1611.50 - November 5th, 2016:

  • Made it much simpler to integrate Rapid Services into your Xojo Web application.

  • Added RapidCheckBox for quickly sending and receiving boolean values.

  • Added RapidListBox for exchanging any Xojo RecordSet with any client application. Values in the RecordSet are stored inside a Xojo.Core.Dictionary on the client side. Helper methods for converting the dictionary into a Desktop Listbox or Array() are available.

  • Added two new examples demonstrating the new RapidCheckBox and RapidListBox controls.

  • All rapid controls are no longer encrypted as Xojo has issues copying encrypted classes that have custom

    inspector behavior.

  • Service names are no longer case sensitive in the URL when using RapidServicesClient.

  • Minor performance enhancements. 

Introducing Rapid Services for Xojo Web

Rapid Services for Xojo Web allows any developer to build RESTful web services without ever manipulating JSON. You simply construct normal web pages using a few simple steps and you magically get a full RESTful web service at your disposal. Included with the package is the RapidServicesClient class that can be used on all Xojo eligible targets and platforms which makes it super easy to connect to your web services. 

One of the aspects about Rapid Services is it builds right on top of a standard Xojo Web application. So long as you are a licensed developer of Xojo Web you can develop with it. In fact you can integrate it directly into your existing Xojo Web applications while only changing a couple minor properties. It will work alongside any application quite nicely. Alternatively you could build completely unique applications just for the purpose of serving your client applications via web services. The choice is yours.

Rapid Services will literally save you hours of development time. No more hacking at JSON and the HandleURL() events to produce meaningful REST API's. Rapid Services lets you construct web services as quickly as you can program Xojo web pages.
