    Re: thinBasic Beta 1.8.6.0

    Thanks a lot,

    the reduced MDI refresh is working well and the other improvements are highly welcomed!

    Only one thing - "the sync active MDI window with code browser" works good, but does not react when I use CTRL+TAB to switch to other code.

    Yes, sorry about that but I had some hurry to publish this release.
    For the moment I had time to just add it to react to thinAir Tab switching.
    I need few more improvements and than I will extend it to whatever MDI switch will be performed.

    Ciao

    No problem Eros,

    I posted it just to let you know.
    The MDI refresh minimalization is great, most visible when launching script from IDE. Before it blinked through all files, now it is more "calm".

    I'm getting a lot of advantages transforming thinAir source code from 100% procedural to some Power Basic OOP.
    There will be a lot of improvements in thinAir in next versions.

    Re: thinBasic Beta 1.8.6.0

    Petr,

    by this evening I will post an updated beta 1.8.6 with MDI switching codebrowser also when using CTRL+TAB or CTRL+SHIFT+TAB
    I think it is better to have it soon at least this one.

    Re: thinBasic Beta 1.8.6.0

    Thanks for the fixes and another great update. Petr's new string functions "StartsWith" and "EndsWith" very interesting and should prove useful when you have certain text manipulation or searching of strings...

    Re: thinBasic Beta 1.8.6.0

    Forgot to say this version already has some kind of "implicit line continuation".

    The general rule is:
    • if statement (line) ends with a delimiter (a comma, a math operator, ...) parser will ignore $CRLF and will continue parsing next line.
      In the bove cases underscore sign (used to indicate line continuation) is not necessary.

    This might be little step for parser, but giant step for mankind ThinBASIC coders.
    Thank you very much, just tried it and works great!

    Re: thinBasic Beta 1.8.6.0

    i agree with Petr, this is a giant step for (basic languages), i have not seen this in basic languages at all,
    to illustrate visually, the following code resemble a man using this feature, the answer is 90
    from now on i am sure the other basics will imitate this.
    ps : it should give 81, i have confirmed by using perl, i was using 9+ at the end, now giving the right answer 81
    [code=thinbasic]Dim a As Long
    a = 1 +
    2+3+4+
    5+6+7+8+9+
    0+0+0+0+0+
    1+2+3+4+
    5+
    1 +1+
    1 +1+
    1 +1+
    1 +1+
    1 +1+
    1 +1+
    9


    MsgBox 0, a
