Re: HFinder - is a tool to find files on your hard disk

Don't worry for your english, I can understand :) Actually one limitation of the Listview class is that I have to use the same alignment for all columns but I was thinking to insert a special tag to change alignment on the fly, this way the layout could be much more flexible and if you want you can ...

Re: catalogs

Hello all, I'm the author of LookHere! :D I've not used catalogs because I don't know how they works and because I suspect they are complicated to manage, instead I've used tables indexed with a semplification of the text string to translate, let's say that I've in my program the following text: 'Ab...

Re: Splitstr speedup?

Hello Tarzin don't know if my suggestion will speedup things because I've ton tested but you should use in this case tables: Instead of having: name[1000] surname[1000] age[1000] job[1000] you could use: Database = {} then, for every record you have retrieved and splitted: Database[record_number] = ...

Re: Problems with empty spaces

Hi Murmel,
empty spaces where? at the beggining, at the end, in the middle? Please make an example of a not working file name... but maybe it's enough to add double quotes to your file string.

Re: Callback functions don't like ':'

Globals are bad things!!! ;) I'm sure there is a way to work with : and callback functions, maybe using a method to install and disinstall events on your objects, something like: MyObject = Object:New() ... MyObject:InstallEvent(OnMouseMove) ... MyObject:Disinstall(OnMouseMove) Just an idea, I'm not...

Re: Automatic Id question...

Let me understand better: you say that in the following code my_brush = CreateBrush(Nil, 100, 100) ... my_brush = CreateBrush(Nil, 200, 150) the second brush creation should free the first one because you have used the same variable (my_brush)? I think it's not really handy this approach... more aut...

Re: Callback functions don't like ':'

Hello, I think it's because if you write x:cheese is the same as writing cheese(x) so your code SetTimeOut(Nil,x:cheese,1000) is the same as SetTimeOut(Nil, cheese(x), 1000) Right now I've no time to deeply check what you can do to resolve your problem, but the error you get is caused by passing the...
