Will the new IDE create programs for Linux? (Love it if it would do forms for DOS but that just me being me with my love of MS-DOS)


Sorry Gablea, I wish I could yes but I only program on the Windows platform so the editor will be Windows only. It may work on Linux through Wine.

Hello! newbie here. i was looking for a small complete freebasic firefly project sample that i could open, compile and modify to get me started.
I noticed in an earlier page there was a link to a file Invoices.zip that paul provided for another new user (lonng time ago) - the link in that post is no longer working.

is the invoices.zip available somewhere else ? or does someone have a small complete working project with a single form (or more) with a menu structure that i could download ?

Paul

Is it possible to create custom components for use in FireFly?

I just downloaded the whole FireFly package and the Help file (FireFly.chm) is okay. Because it is an internet downloaded chm file you do need to unblock it first by right-clicking on it, select Properties, and then check the box "unblock".

It worked for me too; the only thing I noted is that it looks unfinished. There are a lot of typos (really a lot; e.g. take a look on the license disclaimer on the start page) and some pages contain only "Lorem ipsum" dummy text.

The program is freeware so hopefully it will benefit a few people in the community.

A few notes are in order just so you know what this program is all about and its limitations:

- It is a visual designer with a built-in code editor very similar to the way that Visual Basic operated in the past.

- It is Windows only. The FireFly exe is 32-bit but it can produce 32-bit and/or 64-bit exe's based on what FreeBASIC compiler you have set up for FireFly to use.

- The FB code that is generated is based on #Lang FB. I doubt that will ever change.

- I wrote the code editor portion from scratch so it may not be as complete or polished as say Scintilla or similar but it does work pretty well. It may not handle unicode based languages.

This version of FireFly for FreeBASIC has been tested with the very latest 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the FreeBASIC compiler.

Good luck! I really hope that this visual designer helps Windows programmers to create programs more easily and quickly than they have in the past.

Hi xingyun86,

You can email me at support@planetsquires.com

You should also be aware that I am phasing out Firefly Visual Designer and replacing it with WinFBE Editor. I am currently building the visual designer piece of WinFBE.

Here is my support forum: http://www.planetsquires.com/protect/forum/index.php
Here is WinFBE download: https://github.com/PaulSquires/WinFBE/releases
Download the "WinFBE_Suite". That 60mb rar file contains everything (editor, help files, freebasic compilers)
