Hi VANYA

I've started to go through the updated items in the 2D_DrawA section and I've tried out some of the code as I'm going along. Running the code in modedrawa I get the following error messages:

FbTemp.bas(6) error 42: Variable not declared, ANTIALIAS_BEST in 'ModeDrawA(ANTIALIAS_BEST)'
FbTemp.bas(8) error 42: Variable not declared, ANTIALIAS_NONE in 'ModeDrawA(ANTIALIAS_NONE)'

I note in your first post that you say to put files libwindow9.a, libLinked_Lists.a in the folder: compilier\lib\win32. I am working in win64 and have put the files there because I don't have a win32 folder. Is this a problem?

I am running the latest version of Windows 10 and FB compiler 1.07.3 - win64.

Hi RNBW!

This is because you have an old version of the library. The new version has not been released yet. I plan to release a new version by May.

Since you are testing examples, I am giving you the source code of the library for Windows: https://disk.yandex.ru/d/FcrexE0s8S9mPw

I note in your first post that you say to put files libwindow9.a, libLinked_Lists.a in the folder: compilier\lib\win32. I am working in win64 and have put the files there because I don't have a win32 folder. Is this a problem?


Regardless of the operating system, library files can be:
1) in the same folder where and the source file that requires the library
2) in the directory where the other freebasic standard libraries are located (libfb.a , libfbgfx.a, ...).
Usually, with a standard FB compliler installation, the paths are located like this: for FBCOMPILER-WIN32 (compilier\lib\win32) , for FBCOMPILER-WIN64 (compilier\lib\win64) , for FBCOMPILER-LINUX32 ( /usr/local/lib/freebasic/linux-x86) for FBCOMPILER-LINUX64 (/usr/local/lib/freebasic/linux-x86_64).

I've now run a number of programs from copying and pasting from the Help file and from example programs from the February update that don't work. I'm a little confused (many have said I've been in that state for a long time). If the libraries are not to be issued until a new update in May: why provide code now that needs the new libraries?

I will continue to update the help file, but should I make it available before the May update? I will come back to you when I have finished.

I wanted to release an update to the library in one go, with an already prepared English help file. This does not mean that you have to rush. If you do not have time, then it's okay. Whoever needs to use the library will be able to use the Russian help file until the English version appears.

Not a problem. I should have it finished in time. I’ve identified all the sections that need updating and I’ve already done 9 of them. I was slowed down somewhat this morning. I slipped and fell down the stairs and suffered whiplash to my neck and a painful back. Fortunately, it doesn’t look as if any real harm has been done and I should be able to get down to it again in a couple of day’s time.

I think to delay the release of window9 until the 1.08 compiler is released, so that later on not doing double work. There have already been cases when the library worked on one version of the compiler and did not work on another version of the compiler.

Hi VANYA

I have completed the translation of the Window9 help file from Russian to English and it can be obtained from https://www.dropbox.com/s/2ft9saiw562eh53/Window9_EnglishTranslation%20May%202021.chm?dl=0. Please note that to open it, first right click on the file and then on Properties and click the Unblock box.

To anyone else thinking of downloading the file, please note that it is for the next update of Window9, which VANYA is hoping to issue in the next few weeks. Some of the code will not work with the current Window9 version. So the advice is to wait until the next update of Window9 to use this help file.

by curiosity, i examined the chm file under linux with xchm. impressive translation work. bravo.

I confess that I didn't believe in this library because it was only for windows. it's not the case anymore. many functions are compatible with linux. very good work...

for the moment, I use BlitzMax and I evaluate Cerberus two excellent languages. but FBGUI has potential under Freebasic. as soon as I have some time, I will test the linux version.

@Coolman

I use this library for re-coding fbdebugger in view to get a compatible Linux/Windows version.
Only the GUI elements are necessary for this task but it's much more easier than using directly the Windows APIs.

The library is well maintained and every time, VANYA reacted quickly adding missing features I needed. :-)
