Re: Advantages of different GUI libraries

Again, not read all posts, because:

Since when is WIN-API cross platform (WIN & LIN)? Natively, without WINE, that is.

Re: Advantages of different GUI libraries

Sorry, I don't speak Python ... :-) Have a look at: Cairo (or Pango-Cairo) and FLTK (as a first tip, based on Five). Nevertheless, learning them (and FreeBASIC, naturally) is a must. You'll find quite a lot of examples, in various parts of the forum, too. It's finally up to you to decide on "ea...

Re: Advantages of different GUI libraries

What are relative advantages and disadvantages of these and which ones do you prefer? Which one is relatively simple but sufficiently strong to create reasonable GUI applications? Such 'open' questions are not really preferred, because it'll require a fully fledged multi-page reply. It's far better...

Re: Why wrong length of array

Will programs that I compile run both on 32bit and 64bit systems? What is the best way to ensure that compiled programs work on both 32bit and 64bit systems? FBC 32 bit, should do the trick provided, that the 64 bit system has a 32 bit emulator built-in. (This may change, in the future ... ?!? Who ...

No, it doesn't make any sense to SWAP, when one side is "uninitialized" (aka: Any).

Whenever you want to know, how something is exactly,
consult the FreeBASIC Manual (reference section), e.g.: Arrays

Re: How to include arrays in type/class

You are currently using "fixed size" array's.

Code: Select all

' var size array's (aka: dynamic array)
Dim As String blah(Any)
ReDim blah(0 To 9)   ' 10 elements

Re: Why wrong length of array

If 'S()' is a String array, 'Len(String)' returns the length in Byte of the string descriptor (the length of 3 Integers). While the statement above is true, be careful with "Integer", because it isn't a "fixed size" data-type. I can tell straight ...

Re: Set up FB on Windows 10 to run old programs?

I'd use another IDE (FBide can't manage upper case compiler switches!). On Windows only: FBEdit (complete IDE, resource Editor e.t.c.) For multi OS: Geany (WIN, LIN, ...) Old programs should run unchanged with FBC 32bit. For FBC 64 bit, some changes may be needed ... Use the latest "official&qu...

Why don't you take your very own advice?

I suppose it is far simpler, to give meaningless advice, than to just do it (your propsal).

Re: Squares

I was conferring with the other admins. I wanted to make sure we were on the same page. Fair enough (but only until you have the guiding lines). I am here every day. Some of the other admins are not. Isn't that the very reason to have Mod's? More detailed: Stepping in, before things escalate (pro-a...

Re: Squares

@Imortis, seriously???

The times to take anything albert writes seriously, has gone a very long time ago.

What did take you so long, before eventually stepping in to those "below the waist-
level", stupid, annoying rhymes. I wouldn't have waited half the time (month's).

Sorry albert, first error (min./day):

Wich means: 1440 min./day (elements)
Before starting with such complex matters, you should get your math skills tuned.

@JK, Nevertheless i try to find ways of acchieving what i want. This sounds very self centered. Why don't you focus more on: what the community as a whole, deems important. Like as a first step, the possibility to distinguish between "Fix-Len" and "Dynamic" array? This implementa...
