Re: Vector Curve Designer (RAD Tool)

I've got a new convertible, and I thought it would be even more fun to use this program with a touch screen and a stylus rather than a mouse. Unfortunately, it doesn't work properly: I can add a new curve, but after that I can't “grab” and move the red dots with the active stylus. Have special thing...

Re: Vector Curve Designer (RAD Tool)

Hello netmaestro, thanks again for this cool tool! I encountered a problem with the code in the first post (last edited on Tue Jun 02, 2020 3:24 am), using PB 5.73 on Windows 10: After starting the code, I just moved the mouse cursor a bit around, and then the program crashed on line 976 Select Poin...

Ooops. I didn't check that, sorry! :oops:
Thanks for the correction.

I didn't expect that, obviously. It would be better to rename those constants, in order to make it obvious that they are strings:
#PB_URL_Protocol$
#PB_URL_Site$
#PB_URL_Port$
etc.

[No bug] GetURLPart() / SetURLPart()

see Reference Manual:
https://www.purebasic.com/documentation ... lpart.html
https://www.purebasic.com/documentation ... lpart.html

Parameter is a numerical value, not a string.
So writing "Parameter$" in the documentation is inconsistent and irritating.

Re: Get the Shortcut target

Unfortunately, I encountered problems when checking the links in my start menu with GetLinkTarget() . My computer is pretty new, I did not mess with any start menu entries, and all links in the start menu work as expected when I click at them. So the error messages by GetLinkTarget() are wrong. Here...

Re: Get the Shortcut target

Hello infratec, many thanks for your code! The function GetLinkTarget() is exactly what I was looking for. Although the code is rather old, it seems to work almost flawlessly here on my system with the current PB version 5.73 LTS on Windows 10. :-) But because newer PB versions always create Unicode...

Re: Right click Editor Gadget

Hi BasicallyPure, thank you for the code. It works fine here on Windows 10. However, when using it with an EditorGadget that is inside a PanelGasget , it does not work as expected: After clicking at a context menu item, the intended action does not take place, but the contect menu appears again inst...

Re: HTML5 Browser

Many thanks firace, that solved the problem!
I'm sorry, I had completely forgotten about the old posts. :oops:

However, Chrome, Edge and Firefox showed that web page correctly even before enabling font download.
Maybe you can find a way to work around this issue in Nessie.
Thanks again!

Re: [Done] Boolean expressions with string functions

@Fred: It's NOT done!
Still the same wrong result with my above code when using PB 6 alpha 3.

Re: HTML5 Browser

Hi firace, thanks again for one more update of Nessie! I encountered a problem with the current version (also with the previous version). On the PC at my office (Windows 10 Pro 64 bit), the start page of the PB forum looks OK: https://i.ibb.co/YDDJ7st/Nessie-Office.png But on my notebook at home (Wi...

Make options selectable with the keyboard, too

PureBasic doesn't have built-in support for changing the selected option within a group by using the up/down keys. (The TAB key shouldn't do that, but pressing TAB should leave the whole option group -- remembering which option is selected --, and activate another control.) Occasionally this support...
