    Poll: Re: What do you use thinBasic for?

    I have been working on some console games (translating them from other basics to thinbasic for the experience.) It's slow going.

    I haven't worked on any GUI programs lately. I mainly do this when...

    Re: ThinBasic Journal, Issue 1

    Thank you for the first issue. I loved it. Great job!

    I especially enjoyed reading the article on old code.

    Thanks

  4. Re: New in next thinBasic: FOR with on-the-fly variable definition

    I must admit that I don't understand the need for having the variable following 'next'. It seems to me that for now a work around could be:

    for X as long = 1 to 16
    for Y as long = 1 to 16

    Re: console_box colors

    Eros, I appreciate the reply but still have questions.

    Did you forget to say anything about the color table?


    I don't understand the part about groups of 16.

    Re: Word list maker

    I tried that and it didn't make any difference.

    One thing I've tried is to comment out the four 'menu add popup' lines and there was no error messages. Of course, there was no menu system either....

    Re: Word list maker

    Eros, I'll try all of that later this weekend when I get a chance but for now I have a question.

    Shouldn't the UI/menu example give the same error if it was any of that?

    Re: Word list maker

    Using F8 was how I got line 63. I had the debugger going and when this line was highlighted I pressed F8 and got the error. I've tried it several times and this is always how it happens.

    Re: Word list maker

    It seems to be line 63 which is: MENU ADD POPUP, hMenu, "File", hPopup1, %MF_ENABLED



    No.

    What I don't understand is that the menu under UI in the samplescripts works just fine.

    Thanks...

    I tried to use my program earlier today and found that it won't run. I haven't yet been able to find out what is wrong with it but when I do I'll put up a new version.

    Re: predefined colors include file

    I think that since there isn't a standard some colors can be made using different number combinations. It is my understanding that gray/grey can be made more than one way.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Right now I have it as one of the user's help but I think it would be better if it were listed under tools/utilities but that's just my idea.

    data statements in old console programs

    In trying to convert some old qbasic programs there is something called data statements. These are simply data that can be read into variables when the program is run.

    Why was it done this way?...
