The introductory blog post tried to sum up the advantages of GitHub for your thinBasic project storage and publishing.
Let's leave the cold theory and embrace some practical example! This post will describe the basic workflow for founding a new thinBasic project at GitHub.
Grab the fork
Multiple times, across the original article, I mentioned the term fork. As it might not be obvious, let's have a look at what does it mean to create fork of GitHub repository.

Your code. Your creation. Your history of thrill, discovery, ingenious solutions and proud publishing.
Let me remind you of how we shared the code in the past, and what could be the possible direction for 2017.
For years, we got used to a simple system. When we developed piece of code worth sharing or showcasing, we pasted it as forum post, or added it as attachement.
This approach worked, and over years we learned some rules - to stick the latest version to the first

The intention behind my UI in TBGL was to have own controls.
Also i don't like to use windows callbacks and all the burdens of windows controls.
And to have some more overview about the whole TBGL-UI-project i started to write the first utility as thinICE- an Inconvinient Coding-Expedient for thinBasic that will help me to code & debug my projects faster.
Of course thinICE itself uses the TBGL-UI to display all data. Quite confusing, right?
ThinBASIC user defined types, also known as UDTs, offer convenient way to inherit properties and functions - via the Extends keyword.
This approach allows inheriting properties and functions from the base UDT. This is very useful, but there is one catch one needs to be aware!
If you specify function in the new UDT which has the same name as function in the base UDT, override is performed and the whenever you use the function, the one from the new type is used.
This is expected

I just started in programming and I got a Primitive object to show but now I need help with how to program it to make it move specifically with the arrow keys. Does any one know how?
