As you may recall most of us are on vacation and the few of us who are not have to work even harder than usual to keep things chugging along. I’m in India for October (not on vacation) which slows down my work even further outside of my "home base".
We’re releasing a much needed plugin update today with huge GUI builder changes, new round border support in the designer and many bug fixes in the settings etc.
On stack overflow things were as usual:
TestRecorder How-To run test
You can run recorded tests via the tests ant target which maps directly to the tests IDE action in NetBeans
Closing a socket
When you close a stream it implicitly closes the socket, when building this we thought that’s intuitive but I can see how this can be confusing
Local notifications in codename one
These should work fine for all google supported tablets
Fingerprint scanner in codename one
Fingerprint scanning is still emerging, if we see enough demand for it we will add it just like any feature
How to make date time picker components are editable in code name one?
These map to native code so they aren’t as customizable as other Codename One API’s.
How to listen for cell selection on a table?
Overriding the create cell in the table allows the full power of Codename One components
This was requested enough times to warrant a code sample
Downloading file in Codename one

This should be pretty easy especially with the new Codename One Settings UI
How to generate JUnit XML reports in Codename One?
I didn’t even remember we had this and it’s code that I wrote… I don’t know if I’m too old or if I wrote too much code…
How to use resource file of GUI Designer
The transition to the new GUI builder will be painful because of the confusion aspect of two gui builders
Actionlistener not working
This was triggered by a new button created on top of the current button
TextArea / Textfield datachange listener with growing
The whole single line text area is a source of a lot of confusion for developers, we need to find a way to make this more intuitive
TextView Foreground Color
Maybe we should deprecate
getStyle() just to get people to notice the incorrect usage of that method?
Restoring the purchases made with codenameone
This is builtin to the iOS implementation of IAP
Where to place database
There is a detailed guide for this in the developer guide section on SQL
Delete the storage file in iOS
It’s important to keep
Storage separate, we need to simplify that code
RoundMask gives exception when image of specific size is used
The mask and image sizes must be identical, we throw this exception to prevent worse errors later on
Component not showing when swipeable container is swiped using code
This is a bit hidden knowledge thats required for working with this
