    Petr,

    your code is working as T90 Tank

    I think that we need to add a CDATA inside <code>...</code> in order to avoid character misinterpretation:

    My code is not able to interpret CDATA and it just hangs
    Your code seems just ignoring and returned source code is the code plus CDATA so your code is much better.

    I will see what I can do.

    I forgot I have a MSXML wrapper: #INCLUDE "%APP_INCLUDEPATH%\TB_XML60.INC"

    Will see what I can get from it.

    I like the layout Eros. About section 3, how about keeping the data in a SQL database on the server. This way there are no xml files to distribute and information is up to date all the time. In fact, the templates themselves could come from the server. So only templates people need are downloaded and your distribution file remains small.

    Thanks Kent

    Maybe on a second step I will add server side templates but at first they will be distributed with setup. They are just text files so the space they occupy on a compressed distribution is just minimum.

    The CDATA note is important. I think even my T90 routines would have problem in case the text between <Code></Code> would contain </Code> for example in string.

    1)
    Template file format
    I would move the template file format completely to XML, having the following structure:
    petr, does this mean your are only taking this xml for header import? Not for whole dialog code example content I am not sure what's your intention, better to ask here for it. the dialog code example content doesn't need this xml text format? if that's the case ist true I can't read nor more this code format with adding colors and styles formats or java script enhancements in xml text

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <verzeichnis>
         <titel>Wikipedia Städteverzeichnis</titel>
         <eintrag>
              <stichwort>Genf</stichwort>
              <eintragstext>Genf ist der Sitz von ...</eintragstext>
         </eintrag>
         <eintrag>
              <stichwort>Köln</stichwort>
              <eintragstext>Köln ist eine Stadt, die ...</eintragstext>
         </eintrag>
    </verzeichnis>
    
    2) a dialog should have a

    a) simple list/combobox for thinbasic *tmplate too
    b) and I like to add the color of a dialog window parameters with simple adding at the end two commands ( rgb(100,0,200), rgb(255,160,255) or/and "gradient style" ) of dialog parameter
    c) dialog with menu (and perhaps toolbar)

    I shall write that for you?

    I generally like the idea for new dialog format/template.

    bye, largo

    Largo,

    just to be sure ...
    we are talking about improving thinAir/File/New dialog
    and improving the <template> file structure transforming it from plain text to xml code for better handling and future enhancements

    Below code is parsing XML thinAir template idea of Petr using thinBasic native XML wrapper.
    I think I will go this way for thinAir parser.

    Attached thinBasic source and template

    Code
    Uses "Console"
    
    
    #INCLUDE "%APP_INCLUDEPATH%\TB_XML60.INC"
    
    
    $XMLFile = APP_SourcePath+"_Template_.xml"
      
    Function TBMain()
      
      Local pXmlDoc         As DWord
      Local pRoot           As DWord
      Local pRootName       As String
      Local pRootVersion    As Variant
      Local pRootType       As Variant
      
      Local pHeader         As DWord
      Local pFiles          As DWord
      Local pFile           As DWord
      Local FileCount       As Long
      Local pFileInfo       As DWord
        
      Local pNode           As DWord
    
    
      pXmlDoc = XmlCreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument")'.6.0")
      IXMLDOMDocument_put_async pXmlDoc, %FALSE
    
    
      IXMLDOMDocument_load(pXmlDoc, $XMLFile)
      If XmlParseError_get_errorCode(pXmlDoc) <> 0 Then
         PrintL XmlParseError_get_reason(pXmlDoc)
      Else

    Hi Eros,

    the template dialog in beta has one little problem - when I click the templates, their code appears correctly. But when I use arrow keys to choose the template, the right panel with code does not update at all.
    It is probably not an issue, if the code section will be expandable as we discussed earlier.
