Re: Can i use strings content to affect variables in program

It's some time I'm thinking how to implement an interactive mode like the console mode we see in some games, unfortunatly actually my free time is almost zero :P Anyway, unless Andreas have a custom command like the one used for the constants (GetConstant) the only way is to store all variables in a...

Re: Antialiased text on half-transparent brushes

Yes, the workaround partially resolves the problem but costs in terms of cpu time. 1. Setup the brush A you wish to render the text to with your background. 2.

Re: Stopwatch demo

Hi Nicholas, I'm happy you like ScuiLib :) I've had a look at your code and I've found two problems, the first one is caused by the position in the source code where you define the two functions FncStartTimer() and FncStopTimer(). When you create the gui controls these two functions are not yet defi...
