Re: Any native english speaker here to check a phrase?

Well I'm no wordsmith, but I would characterize your description as "lean and tightly targeted code."

Best Regards,

Re: Multiple Debugger Output-List

If you output a lot detailed Information it can be a big confusing flood, especially if you don't use 'Debug' just temporary. So it would be nice if the Debugger Output adds another tab if something like this is called: Debug(1) "Hello Tab 1" Debug(0) "Hello Tab 0" ; same like D...

Re: operator ^ for power

I think, it was a wise choice by Fred not to implement "^" instead of Pow(). With Pow() you have to know what is meant and what you have to do when you want to evaluate -9^0.5. Thank you Fred! :D On the other hand you can make "^" do anything you want it to by judicious use of ()!

Re: Are enumerated constants Global?

Netmaestro,

You are awake at this hour (though I don't really know where you are.)

After looking at my code some more, I was actually hoping it was an ordering problem. Now with your explanation, I'll give a shot at some re-arranging.

Thanks (yet again) for your help,
John

Are enumerated constants Global?

Learning PB is going well, but I ran into an error today I don't understand. I'll try to explain clearly enough so I don't have to post code: I have my main source .pb file in which I have enumerated some menu items for my main (and only) window. The order of coding in this file is from top to botto...

Re: Editor Gadget, use the tab key

Keya The description in the Help files for AddKeyboardShortcut has the following Note: " By default, a window already has the #PB_Shortcut_Tab and #PB_Shortcut_Tab|#PB_Shortcut_Shift shortcuts to handle tab and shift-tab correctly trough the gadgets. " I wonder if you have somehow created ...

Re: Editor Gadget, use the tab key

The Tab key is working 'correctly' for me. Pressing the Tab key moves from editor gadget to editor gadget as desired. A/The trick is to be sure the gadgets are created, enumerated or numbered in the order you want the tab to proceed (Tab order, I think it is.) I'm using v5.31 on Win7 x 32 and x64. N...

Re: Simple address barcode, create and read?

Could you compress/compact the data before saving to the barcode? Un-compact when you scan the barcode. I know, probably a bad idea, but that's the kind I have the most of.

Re: Fundamental misunderstanding of Gadget initialization

Julian, Thanks so much for your attention to this. Yes, I debugged in many places (I removed them before posting) and I did find that the returned value was -1...I just did not know what that was telling me other than it was not the value I was expecting. I still do not understand what fires the gad...

Fundamental misunderstanding of Gadget initialization

Hey All. Brand Newbie to PB here. I've been working through example codes, manual and these forums to learn PB and have had good success in most things so far. I have working forms, menus, Gadget creation, Includes, and procedures working with other procedures so I seem to be making progress. Howeve...

Re: Help: Events handling with the Form Designer

TI-994A, I bought PB a few months ago and have been working my way through these forums trying to learn the ins and outs of PB for my needs. I could have asked the very same question as Barry months ago (and should have!) Just goes to prove again the only dumb question is the one you don't ask. I am...
