Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

CopperSpice: I list it instead of Qt because it has removed MOC, so it's left with just standard C++. But the library itself requires latest C++ version (C++17) and as I think it's template heavy. fyi: https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,49403.msg357958/topicseen.html#new CopperSpi...

Re: What do you use FreeBASIC for?

Most of the FB users are not interested in professional tools, they're just playing around. That is very much reflected here on this forum and by the fact that FB is practically at the same position in the programming world as it was about 10 years ago. There are much more powerful languages these ...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

@marcov re my statcounter image. I agree with everything that you wrote but does that explain 82.56% to 1.46%? No. For general purposes that is about the order I also see windows >> mac > mobile platforms > linux, I just don't really accept those stats for anything but browser related stuff, as the...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

. If I want to use a Timer I will call the Timer sub but not drag a non visible "TTimer" component and drop into my form. That's my reasoning. Wanting to do it in code is not an argument for not also having it in GUI. Most hardcore Delphi devels will do everything in code in their big app...

Re: What do you use FreeBASIC for?

But I think marcov is right. I developed and shared many helpful tools for professional FB deployment, like cmakefbc to adapt FB to the CMake build system, or fbdoc to auto-generate documentation from FB source code with Doxygen (or GTK-Doc). But those tools are not as popular as my code beautyfier...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

However, if someone is thinking about writing an application with a view to publishing as shareware then look at the following: Shareware? The nineties called, and they want their terminology back! :P-) Anyway, such stats are hugely misleading, since ever increasing counts of users won't ever insta...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

Yes, I misunderstood you. You want to use these gui toolkit as a backend for our own cross platform gui toolkit. I'm talking about full binding. They're different. It sounded more and more like the LCL. Do you want FB to go the same way as FPC to develop a RAD environment like Lazarus? I think that...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

Here I give you a list of C++ GUI library I confirmed to built and worked on my system with my comment about them. Please let me know if you think it's even possible to create bindings for them with just one man's labor. CopperSpice: I list it instead of Qt because it has removed MOC, so it's left ...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

Well freepascal still keeps it's original pascal base. I can write really old style pascal code and it mostly still runs, in fact I don't like that Lazarus monster anyway. So freebasic should also preserve the basic language. One problem in fb remains using C++ libraries, but it was intended to int...

Re: Why do you still program for DOS?

I remember the 386 SX. Wasn't that a 32-bit processor with a 16-bit data bus? A bit slower since each 32-bit fetch required 2 reads. All to save a bit of money I guess. Yes. At least it wasn't brain-dead like the 486SX that had an onboard math coprocessor that was simply disabled, and even weirder,...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

Well freepascal still keeps it's original pascal base. Languagewise yes, but maintenance and expansion of the libraries are low and mostly dependent on a few people interested retro-computing. I can write really old style pascal code and it mostly still runs, in fact I don't like that Lazarus monst...

Re: RAD for Linux (in development)

BTW, I may or may not have said this clearly before but BasicStudio is not meant to become a RealStudio clone, nor is it meant to be fully compatible. The idea is to take the RS concept with a similar RAD environment, but allowing the freedom to advance in its own direction. Lazarus has a bit of a ...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

Bleeding heck. Talk about putting FreeBASIC down!! In time for what marcov? Do you think moving on to Visual Basic dialect is putting FreeBASIC down? I think so, too. If we have to move FreeBASIC to a more modern dialect, I would suggest VB.NET or Gambas3. Note that I meant the modern dialect in th...

Re: Could someone make a list of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks?

That didn't stop anyone from pursuing the QB dialect, why would it be different for VB ? :_) It's not my cup of tea, but one has to admit that VB 6 has an excellent community, with top level contributions at their forum. VB6 is a dinosaur, but its fans (many, and many are very professional) have no...
