    Missing keywords in help

    this is list of already present and functioning keywords but not mentioned in the help until now

    Core
    to:
    thinbasic-language\thinbasic-functions\variables functions
    missing:
    Variable_GetInfo()
    not sure about syntax - i suspect equal to the sdk-function thinBasic_VariableGetInfoEX


    to:
    thinbasic-language\thinBasic-functions\Application functions
    missing:
    APP_ListVariables
    i would also link this from varriables-section sinds its to find in Application-related

    missing:
    APP_ListKeywordsAndSyntax

    missing:
    APP_GetEntryPoint

    APP_SetEntrypoint
    i think the second one is mentioned in the beginning in relation to TBMain

    to:
    thinbasic-language\script structure\functions & subs
    missing:
    Function_GetBodyCode
    Function_GetSourceCode
    Function_GetStackLevel

    File module
    to:
    thinBasic Modules\File\ (DISK?)
    missing:
    Disk_Free("C:")
    missing:
    Disk_Size("C:")
    running thinBasic in HP Pavillon Desktop 590 a0xxx 8GB Ram AMD A6-9225 Radeon R4 5Compute Cores 2C+3G @2.6GHz

    OS: Windows 11 Enterprise x64 Build 22065 (21H2 pre-release)
    (says the systeminfo. anything else says it were Windows 10 - more or less insider - a lot of the system settings do not function - i could imagine it will not send feedback to microsoft since it always says i need a new app to open that feedback-hub-link. But hey: thinbasic runs well )

    some that are entitled wrong

    ThinBASIC Language > thinBasic Functions > Application functions > App > Environ > ...
    shows "App.Process.ID"
    should be "Environment.*"

    syntax here also says
    sValue = APP.Environment.*

    so i assume the pages title in the navigation tree should show "Environment.*" instead of "Environ.*" (?)




    ThinBASIC Modules > UI (User Interface) > CONTROLS > Control Types > Image Control > Image Control Creation > Control Add ...

    should be "Control Add Image"
    but shows "CONTROL ADD LINE"


    ThinBASIC Modules > UI (User Interface) > CONTROLS > Control Types > Richedit Control > Richedit Control Creation > Control Add ...

    should be "Control Add Richedit"
    but shows "Control Add PropertyList"



    ThinBASIC Language > Module Classes > New Operator

    should mention alternate syntax or better:
    give an example using a to core built-in class
    '-- dimension class variable
    Dim myTimer As cTimer
    '-- instatiate it:
    myTimer = New cTimer("myTimersName")
    
    '-- equals creation and instantiation in one go:
    Dim myTimer As New cTimer("myTimersName")
    
    When to use what syntax?
    '-- one class variable:
    Dim oneTimer As New CTIMER("Timer01")
    
    '--array of a class variable
    Dim multipleTimers(2) As CTIMER
      multipleTimers(1) = New CTIMER("Timer_A")
      multipleTimers(2) = New CTIMER("Timer_B")
      
      
    Msgbox(StrFormat$("oneTimer        : {1}{2}multipleTimers 1: {3}{2}multipleTimers 2: {4}{2}",
                      oneTimer.GetName, $CRLF, multipleTimers(1).GetName, multipleTimers(2).GetName ),
          %MB_ICONINFORMATION, 
          "Timer classes" )
