If there still were any win98 users out there that would care, then probably, but I doubt there are any. So no, there hasn't been any effort put in porting FB to win98, neither by the compiler developers nor by external contributors. Afaik the currently used toolchain to compile FB for windows doesn't support win98 anymore. (and why should it? win98 is 20+ years old by now and if one's still running such a legacy system one could simply use the software/compilers from those days)

Such attempts are being done at all?


Not that I know. But it is an alternative to having to support old versions forever because newer versions don't support some long forgotten operating system/architecture.

There is currently no documentation available, but in github it is possible to create a wiki with collective forces at this address:

You can also learn from the source code of VisualFBEditor, MyFbFramework is fully used there.

I updated the program:
- Added: Add-In support
- Added: History Limit to EditControl (default: 20)
- Fixed: Fixed New-Delete statements
- Fixed: Updated all language templates
- Added: Chinese.lng
- Added: "src" folder
- Fixed: AutoIndentation
- Fixed: DropDown position in EditControl

Now when opening an IDE, a new tab is not added.

I updated the program again:
Removed export functions from the exe file
Now www.virustotal.com says that the program is free of viruses.

Creating grid displays grid on Windows, does not display grid on GTK2 or GTK3. Code indicates grid, but it does not display on form.

In Windows Grid this is an exact copy of Listview, not yet made on Linux, so you can use Listview in both systems.

IDE and library are both cross-platform.

Here is an example:

Code: Select all

'#Compile -exx -s gui "Example.rc"
#Include "mff/Form.bi"
#Include "mff/CommandButton.bi"

Using My.Sys.Forms

Dim Shared frm As Form, cmd As CommandButton

Sub cmd_Click(ByRef Sender As Control)
   MsgBox "Hello"
End Sub

cmd.Text = "Click me!"
cmd.SetBounds 100, 100, 150, 30
cmd.OnClick = @cmd_Click
frm.Add @cmd

frm.Center
frm.Show

App.Run

Example.rc not found , assuming this is a resource file to include .

Perhaps this is available elsewhere .

The VisualFBEditor IDE itself creates the specified file if it is not present. If you use another IDE then in the “VisualFBEditor/templates” folder there are Resource.rc and xpmanifest.xml. They can be copied to the folder that is located .bas file.
Or you can compile without "-exx -s gui" Example.rc "", then the view of the Windows-application will be classic (not XP Style). For Linux, the "Example.rc" is not needed.

In the "Form" menu, select "New Form". Then in the left pane, select the "Forms" tab, there are controls of framework, there you can select controls and draw in the design form.
