[Windows] Find Program handle/info on window title search.

The following let you search for a program window based on window title or class or exe name or all three or a combination of the three. The window handle or class name or exe name or processid can be returned, or all the info (for more advanced users). The comments are a tad sparse, but hopefully t...

Re: Reworking Tips and Tricks forum section

My suggestion is this: Turn Tip's and Tricks into just a forum, section/category. Under that make sure there is at least 3 sub forums called something along the lines of: * Tips & Tricks * *** PureBasic 5.20 LTS *** (Tested/works on 5.20 LTS) *** Current *** (The latest Development versions) ***...

Re: gzip.dll

If you are using the zlib with the max compression, then you also should add a gzip header to the resulting file. gzip and zlib compressed files are the same (both use deflate and are fully compatible) only difference is that gzip has a 10 byte header. Zip archives also uses deflate compression. So ...

Re: Elite: Dangerous (2014)

That picture is actually a artist rendition. Though that really is the visual quality they are aiming for (and last I saw actual footage/caps it lo0oked pretty close). If only it manages to capture that old Frontier Elite feeling (I played that a lot way back on the Amiga) then this will be a huge h...

Re: GetUserLanguage()

Edited the first post. Made a more complete example based on the function ideas at http://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?p=419763#p419763 Renamed/changed the function names. If somebody could make a Linux variant, and also make sure the mac one matches this then we'd have a nice cross platfo...

Re: GetUserLanguage()

For Mac OS X you have to translate language codes like "en", "th", and "de" yourself to the full name by using a string table/dictionary. Table of language codes: http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/English_list.php Get short language code on Mac OS X: GetDefault...

Awesome! A large project I'm working on here compiles fine with debugger both on and off with Beta4.
Only had to do two minor edits (two constant name changes).

Go Fred! :)

StringFormat()

I think PureBasic would be better served to support: Debug "He said \"hello\" to her" ;Output is: ;He said "hello" to her And Debug "He said\r\n \"hello\" to her" ;Outputs is: ;He said ;"hello" to her Debug "He said\r\n \"hello\&q...

Re: GetFolderSize()

Updated the first post. Thanks michel51. And if you are wondering why I did the delim a little differently, it is to make sure the procedure is fully self contained. And to answer the space vs space "issue". Windows/The OS do restrict access to certain files. Some folders on C are for the ...
