Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (V2.1.4 April 26, 2020)

Thanks David, I appreciate you sharing your Help file experience. I (probably like many others) shy away from writing documentation because it lacks the sexiness of the actual programming. Also, whenever I start writing help I get bogged down in the help authoring tool that I am using....and I've us...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (V2.1.4 April 26, 2020)

Thanks Paul - issues noted. (I already have the case autocompletion on my to look at and fix list). I'll work on trying to negate the triggering of autocomplete and autoinsert within a valid comment block. If you notice anything else that's out of sorts then please let me know. Thanks

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (V2.1.4 April 26, 2020)

If anyone downloads WinFBE for the first time then they will find that no User Tools have been installed and won't even know where they are. That's a good point. I will adjust the code for creating the new/default WinFBE.ini configuration file to add the basic tools that exist in the distribution (...

Re: drWinFBE_Tools

The opening link now includes references to the last two posts in an updated Help file. I have downloaded your latest zip and have it ready to go for the next WinFBE release. If you tweak it any further then just let me know and I'll update it. Paul has gone quiet - we haven't had an update in seve...

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

But yes, the dialect is a kind of 'Frankenstein Monster' at the moment. The real problem is simply one of too much baggage : while still maintaining some degree of 'compatibility' with its root language (QB) is nice, I think that the days of prioritizing compatibility over progress are long gone, a...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (V2.1.3 April 18, 2020)

Hi, sorry but with the Scintilla editing control there is only one color that you can use for an "indicator". The only way to adjust the color is to vary the alpha transparency of the fill color of the indicator box. I have that set at 50%.

Thanks BasicCoder2 I appreciate you taking the time to reply. FBIde was also the first editor I used when I found FB.

Re: SevenSegment (FB 32/64, static lib)

Just to make things clear, this isn't an IDE discussion, which I'd call: going OFF TOPIC. @PaulSquires, I profoundly dislike your 'advertising session'. You might as well delete it. (I also don't do it, in your threads.) Interesting that you'd view it as advertising as I am obviously not selling an...
