thinAir

Add

New project handling. Just started a new way to manage thinBasic script files using projects.

A project is a way to keep together files belonging to the same project. When you will open a project file all included files will be opened.

If a project file is opened, the first file in the list is considered the main one and executed in case of "Run" button (or [F5] key) are activated.



thinAir

Add

Added bookmarks. Bookmarks are used to place a mark on current line in order to jump back later more quickly.

The following keys are setup to set and use bookmarks:

[CTRL] + [F2]

set a bookmark

[F2]

go to next bookmark

[SHIFT] + [F2]

go to previous bookmark

2006.11.28

UI

Add

CONTROL SET RESIZE will allow to set automatic resizing functionality to window controls.



UI

Improved

We have introduced a new way to automatically resize controls in windows.

When a window is created a special function will intercept all %WM_SIZE messages in order to check if any controls had been indicated and automatic size using new functionality: CONTROL SET RESIZE.


2006.11.27

Core

Improved

We have applied a new optimization that speed up scripts containing functions/subs with no parameters and no local variables in there.

The very first time a function/sub is executed by the script, thinBasic stores how many parameters had been passed and how many local variables has been declared. If no parameters and no local variable were found, from the second time the function/sub will be executed no local variable stack will be allocated speeding up the whole process. Only function/sub not having parameters and local variables and executed many times will take advantages from this change.

From our tests, function falling in the above characteristics will be executed al least 2 times faster than before.
