Re: IceDesign (New) modern GUI designer

Nice work on this Window GUI, Chris! I downloaded it earlier today for the first time. 1. Do you have any long-term plans of adding line drawing to it? 2. Does the object/gadget window support moving the controls up/down to afford tab-key order control? Great work! You've done a great job with the c...

Re: Lost serial port error

I can't say I helped. But, timers do come in really handy!

Re: Lost serial port error

I know "zilch" about USB/Serial ports. So...

What about a window timer that checks the status of the port (GetSerialPortStatus())?

Re: MSFS SimConnect...

Sorry for the delay. I am working on a honey-do outside. :) I added three Debug Hex(hr) after each procedure to see what hr was always returning. It still has an error after the third procedure call: SimConnect_GetNextDispatch(hSimConnect, @*pData, @cbData) call. Screenprint of main code with debugg...

Re: Full screen borderless window.

captain_skank: Did you want this code posted in this topic: Full Screen borderless window?

If so, then cool! I will have a look at it. Thanks!

If not: I am not so sure that this new forum is always working with "replies" properly.

Re: MSFS SimConnect...

Thank you for your help, Infratec! I think we are close, but the GetNextDispatch has errored out. Here is a screen print of the code, with the program running and the debug window on top: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O3_79_uktk3cXlEzq1ROdHN3IV-dC_1G/view?usp=sharing That's a brilliant idea of de...

Re: MSFS SimConnect...

Hi Infratec, Thanks for the reply, Mate! I am not aware of a way for you to test a compiled PB program, calling a fictitious instance of SimConnect. I am sorry I cannot provide you with a solution that would test the output of the final TextGadget. But I can test it. Once we get this working I want ...

Re: MSFS SimConnect...

Yup. I'm back at this. The MSFS community has voiced an interest in creating a HUD window display to be used while flying. I really think PB is the answer to what they want. And, I know this would get more notice from other programmers on the MSFS.com and FSDeveloper.com forums. I need your help to ...

Re: Chromium Edge WebGadget

I will have a look at that JHP! I just finished a flight/weather info window to be used by flight simulators, and it used many calls to the default browser. It would be much nicer to control the size of the window and where it is placed, to view the generated web pages. You may want to edit the font...

Re: Transparent background of a TextGadget() over a transparent window?

Hi Don't play with system parameters It's very bad practice I just saw your reply, Rashad. So that I understand, since I do very much respect your opinion , what am I doing wrong; and can this affect the overall health of the OS while this is running? Windows only, since MSFS 2020 only runs on wind...

Re:

Sorry if I've misunderstood, but won't the #PB_Window_BorderLess flag give you what you're after ? Yes, it does, SRod. But, I think the title of the window still displays with borderless being used. I wanted it all gone as you can see from my screen print (On the other thread?). The "X" i...

Re: Transparent background of a TextGadget() over a transparent window?

The disadvantage here, however, is again the loss of the edge smoothing of the fonts. Very true, Saki. But, on my 4K monitor, as you can see, the font is really not that bad. The font displayed is really no worse than a real-life HUD displays'. I am satisfied with the results. Have a look at the sc...
