Re: New cycle-count macros (Windows only)

MichaelW- I compiled your new version on my WIN2KSP3, P4 system using FreeBASIC Compiler - Version 0.24.0 (05-21-2012) for win32. I occasionally get -1 and rarely -2 cycles on the first pass through the code sequence counter_begin( 10000000, REALTIME_PRIORITY_CLASS, THREAD_PRIORITY_TIME_CRITICAL ) c...

Re: MSL - Datascan on COM1 and Linux

I use Windows XP only, but the basics shouldn't differ much from Linux. Using the default fb syntax... PRINT #1, B$ ... prints B$ and automatically appends chr(10,13) [ CRLF ] as two termination control characters. If you don't want the default termination characters, use... PRINT #1, B$; and provid...

Re: Creating A Windows... Window

All three of the 'cairo' examples require 'winlib.bi' which I can't find anywhere. Same problem with most fo the 'GLib' examples. Any clues? When the 'bundle' is unzipped, am I supposed to go and copy all the *.bi files into c:\freebasic\inc and stomp on all the previous gtk stuff from the freebasic...

Re: Code execution suspended if window is selected with mous

Thanks to all who weighed in on this issue. I wasn't sure if this was a bug or just my own inexperience.
Thanks dkl for submitting the bug report.
I can work around this for text-only apps by avoiding "-s gui" compiles, but the real-time chart plotting apps will suffer until this is fixed.

Does this same issue exist in fb on Linux? If not, then there is a bug in fb on Windows?

Re: Code execution suspended if window is selected with mous

I don't think rundll32.exe has anything to do with the suspension of window redraw as it occurs with fb. I have 3 instances of rundll32.exe visible in Task Manager (WINXP) immediately after boot-up and before any fb code is even executed. No additional instances appear when fb app is executing. When...

Re: Code execution suspended if window is selected with mous

A simple fb console app that continuously prints the system timer to the window DOESN'T exhibit the same window freezing. If the same app is compiled as "-gui" the window freezing appears. So, it looks to me like the fb IS the problem when using graphics. #include "vbcompat.bi" #...

Re: Code execution suspended if window is selected with mous

Seriously? Write my own "non-blocking window manager"? ;-) Surely there has to be another way. Isn't this sort of window management something that fb should natively be able to do? If fb doesn't already have a window manager, how would I go about writing one in fb? Any working fb code exam...
