I am coming from RapidQ, with which I was used to program easily for Windows interface (see here : http://www.geneamichaud.123.fr/articles ... g=fr&pg=12 what I've done so far)
I wanted to use Freebasic to program another software, but I am very confused in the way to use it for Windows applications. Where are the MsgBox, CheckList, and the like... ? Is there any tutorial to use these functions, and any library ?
I am not a geek and do not want to spend weeks to collect all the files and parameters, and play with those tricky command lines. So is there something that is working quickly for the Windows environment (I don't intend to program for Linux, Unix, Mac or ZX81). I mean, the compiler, the library to use the Windows API, the editor, the ressource editor, and all the associated help and example files.
Just an example. Is there any FB code example of a Hello World in a Windows window (i.e. not in the DOS console), with one "Exit" button ?
In RapidQ this is
Code: Select all
Showmessage "Hello World"
Is there any bundle that works ? I just want to program and - I know, I am a stupid dumb french guy... ;)
