My QB programs often used an inner y loop for various reasons


I'm curious to know what those reasons were.

Simply adding a new keyword would further pollute the namespace though, and none of those suggestions really gel with me. thisWith and thisCase are simply extensions of this which is already a keyword. There's is already a precedent for this in the language with keywords such as: file*, screen*, va...

I've toyed around with a few syntax ideas, but I'm not sure I like any of them. Maybe allow (With) or (Case) in expressions So it's really just a syntax issue: with myVar expr=value end with select case myVar case 10: expr=value case else end select why not use myWith/myCase, or withThis/caseThis, ...

THIS support in WITH blocks

I've run into this situation a few times while coding and am wondering why this isn't currently supported, how difficult it would be to add and when we can expect to see this in future releases? with myVar this = value 'this refers to myVar end with This is quite useful when your variable is quite c...

Global Operator Overload Template Source Generator

Nice long title there. If you've ever done operator overloading with UDTs, you know how much of a pain in the ass it is to write 100 overloads when the only difference between them is TYPE, so to remedy this I've written a template source generator . This is an initial release, but essentially it ta...

I was a bit hesitant from the first initial builds, but you've put some serious work into this game and it's shaping up quite nicely. I just hope you put all the small touches on it to make it really shine. Good work bro.

Target Class

I'm a strong believer in presentation and production value when it comes to making programs. To that end I've developed a "target" class, which allows you to easily integrate objects into your programs which slide/decelerate across the screen. The included demos better demonstrate this, so please ta...

tizenkotoko, your problem is a common one, but your solution is really dependent on your situation. As was mentioned this is more of a geometry problem if you're dealing with the general case (point-in-poly, intersecting shapes, etc). I have a feeling you need something fast though, for real-time pu...

i guess that would be a good idea, have a sticky topic in projects forum asking people to post screenshot of their work, when they do some new topic in that forum... I completely agree.

Determine If Program Running From FBIDE

Here's some code I quickly put together to determine if a program is being run from FBIDE or not. Obviously you'll have to run this program twice, once from within FBIDE and a second time outside of it. The goal is to allow programs that can changes behavior depending on the target user (developer v...
