Re: FB Setup for FBEdit editor

If by "windows objects" you mean listbox, textbox etc., then I would recommend the WinFBE editor by PaulSquires (here is the thread) . This editor is currently being developed by Paul. At this point you can use templates developed by Jose Roca to create windows and controls. I tried it out...

This is very cool Imortis. Thanks for stepping up to the plate.

Re: Property returns incorrect object

I expected the object instance to be returned but now I see that doens't happen by design. A function/property/operator will return a new copy of the object, unless you specify byref. The same is true for simple data types like integer. I also see now were return by reference can be useful. @dodicat...

Property returns incorrect object

I have the class testa which contains a member x which is type statestring (another class). In testa I have a property which returns that member, this.x. That property returns a statestring object whose address does not match this.x. Consequently changes made to the object returned by the property d...

Re: Common shared error

Lol, oops.
I could have sworn I updated my documentation since then.
And I did go looking for it in the wiki. I wonder how I got this wrong.
Sorry.

Re: FB Setup for FBEdit editor

It might be that it is flashing by super fast when you run it. The code print "hello world" will print to the screen but it will also end immediately. Add a sleep command after that which will force the user to press a key to continue. In FBEdit you use the green arrow on the tool bar to c...

Re: cannot find -lSDL2

Visual Studio Express is what you are looking for. Its free. But I thik that you are close with code::blocks anyway. The last time I mess with tar files it seemed to me to be an unnecessary extra hassle. I'm sure they serve a purpose, but in this case there is a zip file that windows can handle nati...

Re: cannot find -lSDL2

It seems that code blocks can't find the header file. It is step 4 in the tutorial. Under project settings, click on project build options In the Search Directories, we need to add a new compiler directory. Click add, Select the SDL2 folder inside of the include directory from the folder we extracte...

I've never tried Code::Blocks. I used Visual Studio and the tutorial was spot on.

Common shared error

This little error I came accross today might be a good thing to add to the documentation under keyword "common":

COMMON variables cannot be object instances of CLASS/TYPE's with cons/destructors.

Re: cannot find -lSDL2

This is an example of how to write a tutorial. I followed along to the first hello world program and it was step for step, and left no mysteries. It is for C++ however so take it for what its worth. If the first couple of lessons are any indication, then I think it still might help you in using SDL...

Re: Any list of softwares made in fb?

ZIP is like mp3. It's good enough

This is a bad analogy as MP3 is only popular. It is not "good enough". An explanation is way off topic so I'll leave it at that.

Re: Any list of softwares made in fb?

Over at Lachie's site that I linked there is a pac man style game (screen shot) Again the age of the compiler is a benefit as it is clearly a mature compiler. But that age has that massive drawback of so much software lost to history. Now that there are very few users, large, flashy, demonstratable ...
