Re: GetOpenFileName questions

Well, my program is working fine with my original method. But, since I am using Excel automation in my program anyway, I found that Excel has it's own FileDialog function that I tested and it seems to work also. I probably won't change it now since the program is complete. Anyways, here is an Excel ...

Re: BLoad and Put not working?

Since the the origin (0,0) of the screen is at the top left, your sprite will be to the bottom right of the coordinate you select. Since you didn't post a complete example of what you're attempting, I am posting a short example using some of the code you have shown. #include "fbgfx.bi" usi...

In FBIDE you can also select the option to format the code as HTML. You then save that file and print it from a browser.

Re: Problem accessing COM Port FreeBasic/Firefly

I see a couple of potential issues related to the file handle for the com port. First of all, in one portion of your program, you aren't closing a handle if you get an error. Open "Agora3D.prm" For Input As #f If LOF(f) = 0 Then myerror = 1 close #f 'add this Else Input #f, RelPort, CamPor...

Re: Problem accessing COM Port FreeBasic/Firefly

Change

Code: Select all

Open "COM2: 2400,N,8,1" as #1

to

Code: Select all

Open Com "COM2: 2400,N,8,1" as #1


The first works for DOS
The second is for Windows
You may also need some flags in the statement to disable control lines.

Code: Select all

Open Com "COM2: 2400,N,8,1,cs0,cd0,ds0,rs" as #1

Re: GetOpenFileName questions

Thanks for the responses. I guess that for now I'll just make sure I have plenty of space allocated for the return string. It seems to work fine. I just thought that there might be a better way than what I was doing.

GetOpenFileName questions

I'm using the GetOpenFileName with the OFN_allowmultiselect flag. I have a few questions. First of all, is there a simpler method to extract the file names since they are null separated? Second, is there a way to dynamically allocate the space for the file names since I'm not sure how many file name...

Re: Excel Disphelper help

Never mind. It was way simpler than I made it out to be. I just selected the range first and then added the listobject.

Code: Select all

xlrangeselect("$A$1:$D$3")
xlcm(xlapp,"activesheet.listobjects.add")

Re: Using COM ports above COM1 and COM2.

No clue. This test program has always worked for me. Haven't tried it with the latest compiler version though. As a quick test, jump pin 2 to 3 on your serial cable (not hooked up to another device) and see if what you type is returned. If so, you have some issue with what your hooking it up to. May...
