Re: Question on "As Const" construct

Thanks this works for the length. But later on I need to compare this string to a stored string using strcmp and the error still occurs.

Re: Question on "As Const" construct

I am working on an old project and it has problems (have not checked them out yet) with 0.24 and the 3.x GTK binaries did not work either. I was too busy to try and find out why.

So I am using fbc 0.23 with the last 2.24 gtk stuff/

Oh yeah I have the most up to date windows 7 system.

Re: Question on "As Const" construct

This does not work. The VAR still declares strData as a Const gchar ptr and the use of strData still causes the strlen(strData) statement to generate the error. I think the problem comes from the GTK definition. I do not think the function should be declared with CONST result. The returned value is ...

Re: GDKATOM error in GTK program

Thank you, I will try this out tonight after work and let you know how it goes. Please keep me informed of progress with 3.4... If I have some time later in December I might give 3.4 a try if you think there are good conversions for windows.

Re: GDKATOM error in GTK program

Thanks for the suggestion. However I am sorry but there is only one parameter in function "gtk_clipboard_get" Quoting from GTK 2.24 documentation it says GtkClipboard * gtk_clipboard_get (GdkAtom selection); Returns the clipboard object for the given selection. See gtk_clipboard_get_for_di...

Question on behind the scenes storage management

I am trying to trace down a memory leak and had a question on String memory usage. Is there a definitive discussion somewhere. A simplified code sample of my question is Dim s as Zstring Ptr s = function returning Zstring pointer ... s = strptr( string expression) At this point does the system retur...

Re: Links not working?

You can try Panoramic if you want a simple means to build GUI programs. See my articles in "Back 2 Basic": http://imortisoft.no-ip.org/b2b/?Issue_%231:Introduction_to_PANORAMIC http://imortisoft.no-ip.org/b2b/?Issue_%232:Using_DLLs_with_PANORAMIC http://imortisoft.no-ip.org/b2b/?Issue_%23...

Hi wallyg! Thanks for testing the headers and for your report. Sorry for your trouble. It seems that by any reason some old headers gets included and cause the duplicated definitions. I'll check this, although it isn't importand for the next FB release (since all old headers will get removed). It m...
