There are many impressive games that have been created with OpenGL, such as Doom3, Counter-Strike, various Medal of Honor, Need for Speed and many others. This book will provide you with the basics to start your own OpenGL core projects on Xojo. Watch the video clips below!
OpenGL is one of the few standards for creating a powerful software interface. There is a great deal of reusable code and material on the internet that can be adapted to Xojo. Another resource with free examples is at Alwyn Bester's website at Xojo3D.com.
This book builds a strong foundation on programming graphics. This is an advanced graphics book and it is highly recommended to understand the Xojo programming language first. An intermediate book called "I Wish I Knew How to... Program the Canvas Control with Xojo Desktop" is a good book to study and understand before learning OpenGL. Examples in this book have been created and tested on Windows 10 and OSX El Capitan operating systems. This book is focused on 32-bit programming. Much of the code works with a timer to provide smooth graphics and animation. Below are a few video's of examples that are included in this book. These examples are currently 32-bit.
Windows Registry is the heart and soul of your computer, and can change the applications when you right-mouse-click your desktop, to remembering your window position. This book show the fundamental programming parts that work with Xojo to change the registry with your program. With great power comes great responsibility - always backup your computer before making changes!
This book I Wish I Knew How to … Program Windows 10 Registry with Xojo shows how to perform multiple changes (CRUD) with the registry.
The ‘I Wish I Knew’ series contains technical data and advice that makes sense and contains practical and numerous examples with explanations to allow you to ease into the steep programming curve. There are many examples with both pure Xojo code and also this book has a module which contains the Delcare API's to further increase your programming options.
Note: There is a different book for programing the latest Raspberry Pi 3 B+ hardware, post-Xojo 2018 r1 with the Stretch OS! This book is the older version for pre Xojo 2017 r3, Jessie OS, and pre-Pi 3B hardware.
You can do many things with the Raspberry Pi, and some have built a Star Trek interface, while others have automated their house. This book provides the building block to work with Xojo to react with the real world through its motherboard to allow you to make your own interesting device. This inexpensive computer can be programed by the widely recognized Xojo programming language.
This book “I Wish I Knew How to … Program Raspberry Pi 2 B and Raspberry Pi 3 B Electronics with Xojo” goes into the numerous programs that can be built to interact with many types of electronic gadgets.
The ‘I Wish I Knew’ series contains technical data and advice that makes sense and contains practical and numerous examples with explanations to allow you to ease into the steep programming curve. There are many electronic examples and the book also has many references to the Jessie Linux Operating System that is used with the Raspberry Pi.
You can start building your own electronic projects with Raspberry Pi today!
