Re: wxWidgets 2.8.12 FreeBASIC C wrapper

This package seems to contain a modified version of the original wx-c library contained in the wx.NET project. Is the source code of this modified wx-c library available or will it be?

Using a closed source wrapper for an open source library looks kinda strange and wrong in my eyes.

Re: windows Multi-language Editor ( English;French;Spanish)

I downloaded your IDE (including source code) some time ago and did test it. Currently I'm using FBedit and so I compared it to that - I don't need two different IDEs - either FBedit or CSED_ed, but not both. And FBedit just won the comparision: CSED doesn't feature code completion, which is very im...

Re: FreeBASIC Code Assistant

I compiled it using VS2010 and it works, but that's all. I can't think of any use for such a program - it makes writing programs not faster at all, except you are a extremely slow typer or can't remember basic syntactical structures (but that's something one has to learn, when programming). Why don'...

Re: I need your advice on developing an factory pr. tracking

I'd take C# for that: ⋅ Its completely free, no need to buy extra components. Visual Studio Express is free also for commercial use. ⋅ Includes a great and powerful UI-Designer for both WinForms and WPF, no matter what you choose ⋅ LINQ to SQL allows really easy Databas...

Re: How is it possible to access the archives ?

You still can download all the files - although it's a little bit tricky: this only works if you have an working account (thats apparently the case if you were registered in the old forum). e.g. if you want to Download "xGUI" (and you're logged in) you can click on the Download link and ar...

Re: New Freebasic editor

For anybody having the same problem as I described previously, here's the solution I've found using Microsoft's Dependency Walker: CSED_FB.exe is dependent on two non-Windows DLLs, "SciLexer.dll" and "trm.dll". These aren't included in the download package. The problem was that I...

I doubt that many people would find that option. Furthermore SourceForge requires registration for sending messages.

Re: using unicode (tips and tricks)

I use UTF-8 encoded variable-length STRINGs since years (ie Data2App, OpenGlPlayer, GladeToBac, ...). Please note: Unicode mustn't be UTF-16. It may also be UTF-8 or UTF-32. Sure, you may misuse ordinal "String"s for storing Unicode data (no matter which encoding: UTF-8, UTF-16, etc.), bu...

Re: Updating freebasic windows .bi

I don't know about the legal situation, but the code excerpt in my last post above was taken from MinGW's Win32 Headers, not from the original Microsoft Windows SDK. The defines/declarations mentioned are present in MinGW's Win32 Headers, but missing in FreeBasic's.

Re: using unicode (tips and tricks)

@TJF: please don't write nonsense, if you have no idea - in fact Microsoft implemented Unicode in Windows quite early and Windows was even the first OS that used Unicode in system calls. Regarding Unicode and Windows : ⋅ Windows doesn't use UTF-8 internally, but UTF-16 (UCS-2) instead. &sd...

Re: Updating freebasic windows .bi

@counting_pine: The Windows API has been extended/modified several times with each new version of Microsoft Windows. The original C Headers include Version-specific defines, which seem to be not included in the FreeBasic Headers. For example, the missing Defines in "wingdi.bi" are wrapped ...

Re: how to search for valid com ports?

if you're using Windows the easiest way is to look into the registry:
HKLM\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\SERIALCOMM lists all ports

Re: No AppInit_DLL key in the registry on my XP SP3 box?

Using the (deprecated!) AppInit_DLL Registry-Key you can inject a DLL in every process that gets loaded. CS_GLOBALCLASS is something rather different: you specify this wndclass-attribute, if you want your wndcls to be application (process) global. Of course you can combine both features to register ...
