Thanks Tourist Trap, I see your point. Normally WinFBE re-parses files when saved. I will add behaviour to re-parse dirty files when the Function List is popped up. That should fix the trouble you're seeing.

That would be sincerely great.

Other things, rather strange. Maybe it has already been noticed but I didn't read the previous pages so excuse me if I'm describing something well known.

Ok there is 2 things. I'm having 5 or 6 tabs with some little unsaved stuff within. I open a 7th tab and try the designer. I put a textbox or wathever (I made a try with a label too), and I try to quick run it. It doesn't work. Nevermind I save this tab and launch a "compile and run". Doing this, it tries to save my previous tabs, I cancel. Then I have my tab with designer stuff closed by the editor. It disapears.
There is a point of context here. I have a tab with this code that returns a beep and an error message :

Code: Select all

function x  () as String   ''notice that I'm copying/pasting the code from WinFBE and it should be uppercased but this is not here at 1st pasted line...
   
END FUNCTION
''notice that the code quickruns ok and that there is no comment in my original files
error 81: Invalid command-line option, "Untitled4"


Other test I wanted to save a second tab with this code inside to check if it compiles while saved.But it closed again a new tab (in which I did put a new saved designer tab)...

So 2 questions arise.What's wrong with the dummy function ? And is it for a known reason that the tabs were closed?

Thanks for the attention. I will try now to compile some saved stuff of this kindin various way to see what happens.

Edit: (the next remarks overrides the previous questions above)
It seems that the last tab content can not be compiled if the previous tab content is unsaved (and canceled when proposed to save). The previous tab of the saved one will be:
error 81: Invalid command-line option, "Untitled3"
(here the 4th tab is my last one and saved as "x.bas")

Maybe I'm wrong, but this is what seems to happen to me.

When closed every unsaved tabs, my last tab, a saved one, compiles just fine as expected.

Error
FreeBASIC Help file not found
even for a simple path like this:
[WinFBE.ini]
CompilerHelpfile={CURDRIVE}:\Users\fxmam\Documents\freebasic.chm

Note: the other 2 Help file paths (WinAPI and WinFBX) do not seem to work either.
(same error message as above: weird!)

Default since version 1.7.1.
(Help works for version 1.7.0)

Thanks fxm, I have found the source of that problem. I'm uploading a new package tonight and will have the fix in that update. Thanks!

Thanks Tourist Trap, I have taken note of your post and will reproduce the behaviour and get a fix for you.

OK.
Thanks.

A small detail:
For the "WinAPI Help" or the "WinFBX Help" menus, when the path is not defined, the error message has the same text as for the "Help" (FreeBASIC) menu:
"FreeBASIC Help file not found".
I was expecting rather "WinAPI Help file not found" or "WinFBX Help file not found".

Why if i use WinFBE suit it compiles successful, but if i compile master one it brings many error even if WinFormX dir is copied into compiler's inc dir? Such as "Error 18: Element not defined, SetTextForeColor..." (can't copy from compile log) What's the difference?

Do you also have Jose Roca's latest WinFBX includes installed? You need them as well. That error indicates that maybe you don't have the latest CXpButton.inc from Jose's includes.

With the previous IDEs I've found myself swinging back and forth with using Freebasic as a hobby language, but this IDE is brilliant and I already feel myself wanting to do more with it.

One kind request though (if it hasn't been brought up already) is it possible to take into consideration directory structure in a project folder, and have the same inheritance inside the Explorer pane with the file nodes?

Thank you for this :)

Version 1.7.5 (August 22, 2018)
- Added: OptionButton toolbox control.
- Added: Frame toolbox control.
- Added: Implemented logic for controls "Locked" property.
- Added: Implemented logic for top menu option "Lock Controls" (this is a global override locking the form and all controls on the form).
- Added: Pasting controls automatically increments the TabIndex property for the newly created controls.
- Added: Entering an existing TabIndex number will automatically re-number all higher TabIndex value controls.
- Changed: Greatly refactored the underlying WinFormsX code dealing with the message pump and keyboard input handling and modal/modeless forms.
- Fixed: Pasting controls was not immediately setting the form dirty thereby not saving the changes.
- Fixed: Dropdown combobox in ToolBox that displays list of controls for the form was not updating when controls deleted from the form.
- Fixed: AutoInsert inserting "End Function" and/or "End Sub" in situations when it should not. Fix from 1.7.4 failed on "FUNCTION =" lines.
- Fixed: Keyboard focus is now correctly restored when a popup modal form is closed.
