The compiler asks twice to overwrite

There is a minor annoyance when compiling and you want to replace a previous executable. It will prompt you that the file already exist, and ask if you want to overwrite this. If yes it will continue, asking about compression. Then as the last step before saving the executable, it will again prompt ...

Windows IDE wish

Using AmiBlitz/Blitzbasic earlier there is a feature I miss in the Windows IDE: To be able to mark a block and select from from the menu "Block Comment" and also "Block UnComment" I found it very useful when testing various part of the code, specially when ruling out errors in the code. It would be ...

@DISPLAY is a preprocessor command, which are processed before the rest of the script, so your variables mywidth, myheight and mycol don't exist yet.
Thank you, that explains it. I was not aware of that preprocessor also ment that it would be processed before any code written above.

From google I read that one of the things the...

@DISPLAY vs CreateDisplay arguments

Is there any reason why @DISPLAY does not accept variables for arguments, while CreateDisplay does? I made an example to show what works. mywidth = 600 myheight = 400 mycol = "$959595" CreateBGPic(1, mywidth-400, myheight-300, #WHITE) @DISPLAY {width = 800, height = 600, color = #GREEN} CreateDispla...

Re: How handle dates to make a little agenda?

Here is a working example for an addressbook, with the option to export the data as a text file or cvs style. The user interface is very basic though @DISPLAY {Title = "Addressbook", x = 100, y = 100, Width = 480, Height = 620, Color = #WHITE, Noclose = True, Sizeable = True} ; check for previously ...

Does it have to be human readable text files? If not, you could use WriteTable() and ReadTable() to get a really easy solution.
Could you please make a small working example, similar to the one I posted?

Re: Layers and brushes

Thanks. I did test with DumpLayers(), and it does look like the layer is created only first time the brush is displayed. Next time MoveBrush() is called there will not be a new layer.
