I just downloaded and tried this IDE and I have to say I am really impressed. One issue I have that seems odd is that I don't see a simple push button on the toolbox controls available. Am I missing something?

Thanks

In fact I still don't understand that which button do you want. It is better Post a picture showing what you want.

THE API functions for GTK3(https://github.com/XusinboyBekchanov/Vi ... K_html.zip )and Window32(https://github.com/XusinboyBekchanov/Vi ... DK_htm.zip )are now available. Has anyone try to translate into a local language?

I want to try to compile a program for android, but I am not sure how to configure the IDE. I have installed "Android Studio", but what else should I do? What options should I include?

You can open folder AndroidProject from Examples (File -> Open Folder). Or you can create a New Android Project from the New Project dialog.
You can download fbc releases from https://github.com/XusinboyBekchanov/fb ... tag/1.09.0.

And you must specify the path of the compiler in the Compile item in the Project Properties. And you must specify Android SDK Location, Android NDK Location, JDK Location in the Android Settings item in the Project Properties.

After you can start (F5).

Ok, This is what I was missing. I thought it was the IDE itself that compiled for ARM. :oops:

Hello Xusinboy.

I was able to compile the IDE and mff library without any problems.

The OS is the latest raspbian 32bit.
The compiler is FBC 1.09.0 (2021-12-31), built for linux-arm (32bit)

The IDE starts without a problem, but after selecting the compiler path the IDE crashes with a Segmentation fault.
After that, each new start after the appearance of the splash screen crashes with the error Segmentation fault.

what could it be?

Thanks again for the help.

Try from releases (1.3.2). I need to look at the latest unreleased version.

With version 1.3.2. everything is OK.
The editor works, no more problems with the compiler path.

However, when I try to compile a test program, I get the following message:

Code: Select all

21:31:43: Compilation: "/home/pi/VisualFBEditor.1.3.2/Compilers/FreeBASIC-1.09.0-raspbian9-arm/bin/fbc" "Form1.frm" -exx -v -s gui -i "/home/pi/VisualFBEditor.1.3.2/./MyFbFramework" 2> "/home/pi/VisualFBEditor.1.3.2/Temp/Compile.log"

error 81: Invalid command-line option, "Form1.frm"

The Parameters Window will open in the Build -> Parameters menu. There, in the compiler line, it should have been written like this:
-b {S} -exx -v
When compiling, it was necessary to compile like this:
-b "Form1.frm" -exx -v
Have you changed this setting?
