Add

Tools/Utilities/Format Code. Whit this functionality you will be able to produce a copy of your script formatted with indented levels


2006.09.21

Core

Fix

Multiple nested function calling not correctly allocating passed parameters.

Imagine functions A, B, C, D, ... all with their own parameters

Now execute something like: A(p1, B(p1, p2, p3, C(p1, p2), p4)

Because C is executed from inside B and B is executed from inside A, thinBasic was not correctly recognize valued of passed parameters.

Add

Console_PrintAt introduced. Console_Print will be an alias of Console_Write



Core

Add

Simple USING$ function introduced. It is just a basis version able to keep numeric or string variables but not multiple variables at the same time. We will try to implement it.



ODBC

Add

Big changes on ODBC side.

we have removed ODBC module. The clause USES "ODBC" will no longer be valid
ODBC functionalities are now implemented using a wrapper developed by José Roca
to use ODBC functionalities inside a script just add the following line of code:
 #include "%APP_INCLUDEPATH%\ODBC352.INC"
This line will tell thinBasic to load all ODBC functionalities from an include file thinBasic will maintain
all ODBC interface functions are inside a new library called "ODBC352.DLL" maintained by thinBasic
more than 500 functions are listed in new ODBC interface. We will not document all of them but instead we will create some self documented scripts you can use as driving direction. Of course we will give our support in thinBasic forum.

See examples in thinBasic\SampleScripts\ODBC\ directory.



Core

Add

%DEF is another alias of #DEF


2006.09.13

Core

Add

#DEFAULT improved with BOUNDCHECK option

Core

Improve

Now parser will checks for array boundary. Any attempt to access an array outside of its boundaries will generate a run-time.

Add

2006.09.12

Core

Improve

DIM MyVariant as VARIANT can now have the VALUE clause both for single variables or arrays of variant


2006.09.08

Licence


We have changed thinBasic licence in order to let user distribute thinBasic as long as this is operation will be solely functional to script execution.


2006.09.07

Core

Add

VARIANTVT$ will return a string representation of the variant type



Core

Add

It is possible now to pass the following new parameters to functions:

numeric arrays
string arrays
UDT (User Defined Types)
UDT arrays
Variant
Variant array

All these new parameter types will be passed BYREF even if a BYVAL is present. It will just be ignored and amended automatically by the parser.

 

This is an important enhancement. A complete new script strategy can take place.

For example a complete set of information included in a UDT can be passed with just a single parameter.



Core

Improve

Variant data type assignment can have an AS clause followed by a specific numeric data type.

 

So now you can write something like:

  Dim MyVariant As Variant

  MyVariant = 12345.567 As Long

This will assign a new value to MyVariant in the range of LONG, decimals will be truncated.

 

Or also:

  MyVariant = 12345.567 As String

In this case the string representation of the number 12345.567 will be assigned to MyVariant and MyVariant will be of STRING type.

2006.09.05

Core/UI

Fix

LISTBOX and other few keywords present in UI (User Interface) module had problems during parsing due to double allocation in internal data structures.

catventure


Core

Add

#IF, #ELSE, #ELSEIF, #ENDIF, #DEF introduced. These keywords are, in other languages, called conditional compilation statements and are mainly used to include in source files piece of codes under certain circumstances. For example imagine you have to include a user defined TYPE with different structure depending on the presence of a certain variable or a certain value inside a variable.

Now you can use this functionality also in thinBasic but mainly for compatibility purposes in order to include external Basic sources. thinBasic is an interpreter so there is no reason the execute a conditional "compilation" phase (usually performed by multi step compilers) because all is done on the fly by the parsing engine.


2006.09.04

Core

Removed

Sound_Play function removed. No more necessary.
