Yes, this produces a problem - e.g. if FR is called 2x immediately with control printout of selected file,
screen shows only one line of two lines reprinted on the same first line, not two lines printed as coder awaits..

A long moment of no free time I'll have to test&tuning sGUI 084 build on new feature OPB - 'One Point Building' - seems to me,
so here is my tip/idea/design of it.
Preview of this beautiful feature shortly - easy way to build all as movable&resizable, based on one referenz point und differences.
Actually every (composed) gadget/widget is constructed on absolute coords passed as posX,posY.This is hard way for recalculating gadgets in moving..
But this definition/philosophy can be changed into this - all can be constructed on (anyplaced) and from one referenz point, for example taken as ULC - upper left corner of wi/gadget, and all the rest of needed points to construction of composed gadget/widget are differences to this point/derived from this point ;) and all moving+resizing is only calculating differences to differences to one point.
So now absolute coords are equally a difference to point (0,0)!
All necessary what is needed to know is only initial ULC, gadget elements differences to ULC, and difference in mouse moved.
One formula to recalculating - and gadgets are movable & resizable in easy way
Ende of my idea ;)) Enjoy it !!

Quick start on fonts, reading a few font pages..
Seems as missing font Ubuntu-R and its folder in 085alpha pack, so I convert this ttf file from web with your font converter and then moving bmp result into Ubuntu folder; wonderfull - now I see 2 fonts.
Due this I think 085'll has :
- some routine for selecting a font type, size, (+ bmp file internally linked) from a list; and from font folder and its new sGUI global variable ( named e.g. 'fontsAll' or so ).Place for adding all new font files by user manually anytime.

New in 084tuned:
- added new gadget parameter 'gad->moveIt' (yes/no or 1/0 value) for gad's moving feature.
Seems usefull to define static, or dynamic layout feature - gadgets/widgets are movable or not by default.
Initial default values :
gad->moveIt=1 - widgets are movable (FileRequester, MesaageBox, all custom widgets)
gad->moveIt=0 - simple gadget+field of the same gadtype are not movable (e.g. all gads in 'DemoActivation.bas')

Question to 085 Menus - Howto set Menu main bar to be placed on any place ?
Seems actually it has only one position - top of a screen. Usefull feature would be to place it on passed coords with needed lenght,
e.g I would like to use it in designer (0.6+) on top of orange polygon for clearer lists.

Playing a bit with 085 Menus:
Looks very good !
( without new sGUI manual & deeper look&tests into it ), seems as easily modifyable for popular features, such as:
- 'AddMenuBar' optionally placed on Top - Bottom - Right - Left - Custom position
- 'AddMenuBar' optional length of dock bar
( 'AddMenuBar' - very optional custom colors&fonts for every menu element )
- 'AddMenuBar' optional pop-up/roll-out dock bar (invoked by - keypress, mice position&action, mouse knocking on screen edges..)

"Demo Menu PopUp.bas" would be containing more menus (with its submenus) for quick understanding this gadtype & its usage.
Second another menu hooked on left mouse button.
Third another menu hooked on left+right mouse button (or some keypress), but on constant position e.g. (100,100)

No tuning needed in Menus for now ;)

I think I got it ;))

founded answer to my previous questions about 085 font length - fontMode MUST be passed/known & correct to calculate 'textWidth + FontHeight' rightly
( Answers founded in :"BitmapFont.bi, sGUIDrawing.bas, sGUIFont.bas, DemoFont.bas" )
"DemoLabel.bas+Label.bas" tuned even a bit more second time, this really likes me ... (tonight reupload)

085 ComboBoxLong feature looks enabled ;)
ComboBox.bas untouched.Ellegant way needs one macro, code is not nice (2 lines).
(You have other formula for listbox, so quick gap is an incr +21px to longest line.)
"Demo ComboBox.bas"

Code: Select all

(...)
c=TO_GetLongestLineIndex(cb)
'? c,TO_GetLineContent (cb,c)
cb->Ctrl(0)=GetTextWidth(TO_GetLineContent (cb,c),1)+21     
'? "LLlength ";cb->Ctrl(0)
UpdateGadget(cb)
SetComboBoxVal(cb,7)'Eintrag G vorselektiert
(...)

Well, tuning of 085 MultilineEditBox remains to do as resizable feature ;) .. maybe at weekend, no time now.

What will be a main tuning IMHO in 085, are fonts.New feature in 085 and it likes me much! Great work, Mutton, thx for it !
As I understand (without knowing font theme in any manner), 085 offers three available fonts (with default rules for applying in gadgets)
- default gfx (084) font 8 px
- proportional font placed in 'FontSlot A' from file - static ?
- monospaced font placed in 'FontSlot B' from file - static ?
So I see this directly in (adapted) designer as possibility to change font to third custom font - dynamic, temporarily placed in 'FontSlot C' buffer from file - for any text gadget loaded any other different font anytime.
And very optionally maybe also switching among them all anytime...
Am I thinking rightly ? in 085 font policy/rules ??

Seeing on 085 MLeditBox and Arrows..
I cannot find example for arrow callback if arrow is added in gad->subevent;
what is right notation in that case ?

What you want implant? A sizing symbol?
Important to know is following: the "gad()" arrray not longer exists. In case of composite controls you have recognize the addresses of the
subevent controls like this:

Code: Select all

  dim as Gadget ptr editbox,vscrollbar,hscrollbar
  editbox=gad->subevent->GadgetList->GetFirst
  vscrollbar=cast(Gadget ptr,editbox->next_node)
  hscrollbar=cast(Gadget ptr,vscrollbar->next_node)

you will find this snippet in several routines where we need to know the addresses.
I would to embed the sizing stuff in routine MultiLineEditSubHandle.

edit:
sure, we can blow up the font section in sGUI, at moment i have no plans for that.
with the embedded "BitmapFont.bi" (from charset2fbfont) the user can play with bitmap font as he wants.
