demo LionBasic Warp
« on: October 17, 2009, 12:48:23 AM »
hello.

to improve my knowledge about powerbasic I have made some experiments with the "PBNote2" (pb9\samples\sdk\PBnote2) example and improved it with some more functions. "lionbasic_warp vol 0.1ax" it's just a demo (I hope a good one!) what I can show, but perhaps some day there will be more. I need for eg half a day to solve the problem to include the combobox correctly in toolbar and much more little details where the little nice devil lives.

test and enjoy the demo. I say not much more. explore the feature. it's a lot of more than an editor. I like more and more powerbasic: it's full of feature, goes deep and detailed in coding structure to handle nearly everything. It's hard stuff for me to understand all new things around this great software, but every day I see more light at the powerbasic horizont :)

take a little time and use this demo with patience. if you like this demo, test it, make some critics. would be very nice. thanks.

info about lionbasic_warp demo: you have only the possibility to use the editor as it is made for. other feature shows graphic elements and some calculations.

best way to start: "file new open" so you can write something and save your text or not. or use File/Lionbasic_Warp to see the first graphic or Examples/graphics ... ;)
 
I add here only the *.exe file. all work in progress. pictures too. thanks to help mainly from josé until today here at the board! you find the zip file below.

=> info: the current version of LionBasic Warp Demo you can find every time  here:
    (last update, "lionBasic Warp 0.1bx", tuesday, 20.10.2009)

good night, frank

I'm glad you have chosen the SDK style of programming. It takes more time to master but has not limitations. And if you want a simplified way of using it, see my posts and examples related to my CWindow class here: http://www.jose.it-berater.org/smfforum/index.php?topic=3130.0

hi josé, hi all.

yes, it will takes all a little bit longer to fetch a good image or feature, but I will do this hard way of creating new gui's and pb features. I have not very much time at the moment, but this few time I check and explore always new possibilities for sdk windows and its handling.

thanks for the link, I didn't know these examples. thanks.

I have done a simple FreeImage example. Download all the stuff and the freeimage.inc file.
it's a big size of FreeImage.dll (nearly 2.4 mb size!), but I will use it for some tests for my lionBasic_warp project. one little example I add here as picture. my "load DIBs + BMPs" example some posts (another thread) before didn't need FreeImage.dll so I am happy. I am thinking there are a lot of power in this FreeImage.dll, but if this one is often used by pb users ? ;) don't know.

question: Would be nice to get some infos about the lionBasic_Warp feature "find_execute": you find it here: (menu/ compile?/ find_execute) what result you'll get :)

thanks, nice day, best regards frank
ps: lionbasic_warp: one little effect I have also included a new sample with "colBoxes", this will follow next week as new update.

I have updated LionBasic Warp.

next issue and a general question to "winmain" !

1) I wish to include a callback function for opening a new sdk_window. I have managed this one for 90 per cents, BUT I cannot close the new, second sdk_window by "closing" ("x") ... I must go a tricky way

a) minimize the new window ("sdk_window")
b) go to main, first window and close this one ("LionBasic Warp")
c) now it's possible to close the second window or use it.

if somebody has an idea would be very nice.

the problem: If I use "function winmain() as long" to create a new window I cannot use it for callback functions again. I have made a help function called

Code: [Select]
function abc2() as long
...
'but here it's not allowed to use

function winmain() as long

end function

I open this new sdk_window only by

Code: [Select]
...
CASE %IDM_SDKWIN
          MSGBOX "test for open new sdk_win", %MB_ICONINFORMATION, "~lionBasic Warp"
          IF %IDM_SDKWIN THEN
          abc2(1,2,1,2)
          END IF
...

      END IF
   WEND

   FUNCTION = uMsg.wParam

END FUNCTION

anybody can give a good hint ?

- you find "sdk_window menu" here: men\utilities\sdk_window

 
2) new features: 1x graphic ("colBox") and 1x "input" test dialog, 1x print3DText ("Lionbasic") example
  

please take attention to use this example.

best regards, frank
new demo of "lionbasic_warp 012bx" exe I add here.

You can't reuse the class for the main window to create a popup window. You have to register another class and provide to it its own message pump and callback function. Here is an example:

Code: [Select]

ok :) thanks for this example. something like that I was looking for it! good.

here my current problem, I have reduce this code as a simple "menu+popup" example.

a) I have a casual menu. b) then I build in this "popup" window. everything seems ok.
c) but if I close the popup window I get always a gpf. so I think I have forgotten a little important thing, isn't it ? same problem I have noticed for my lionbasic example. I am searching for solution since over half an hour ;(

Code: [Select]

so I think I have forgotten a little important thing, isn't it ?

Yes, not to mix DDT with SDK unless you know what you're doing. ShowPopupDialog is not a callback function, and is not suitable to be used calling it with:

Code: [Select]
    CONTROL ADD BUTTON, hDlg, %IDPOPUP, "Popup", 130, 32, 40, 14, _
        %BS_DEFAULT OR %WS_TABSTOP CALL ShowPopupDialog

You have to remove this call, process the WM_COMMAND message and call the function there:

Code: [Select]
        IF CB.CTL = %IDPOPUP THEN
           ShowPopupDialog CB.HNDL
        END IF

This is the full code:

Yes, not to mix DDT with SDK unless you know what you're doing. ShowPopupDialog is not a callback function, and is not suitable to be used calling it with:

I have solved my two little problems.

1) "input box" can open a) a new "popup dialogue" without having
     problems after b) closing the dialogue was fixed

2) my second sdk window runs (you can open a quite new sdk window!) ! :D

    => you will find this popup sdk window: menu "utilities"\sdk_window.
         perhaps you like it ?

    => open new "sdk window" you will find plus a "close" and a "popup" button with callbacks

    - still little problem: colour blur effect of SDK window, if you click first the main window and then some  
      colours are changing, but I know where this little evil friend lives ! I erase this effect with next
      release.

pictures and exe file as attachment.

that was a very good feeling, to solve this sdk window problem and see everything is running again as I liked it. it's really a big different to use ddt functions or sdk window features! I have to take care for it for the future. thanks for the good script two post before, josé ! I like powerbasic like a beautiful vamp ;)

3) new update of "Lionbasic Warp Demo" you will find everytime in my first post too.

feel free to test this demo to make it better! I would be very thankful !

good night, thanks, best regards, frank

Re: demo LionBasic Warp + Inputbox$
« Reply #8 on: October 21, 2009, 08:19:31 PM »
good evening.

I am looking for an alternative example how to create an inputbox$ calculation for numbers (add, minus, multiply, divide), but not with this kind of antique inputbox$ example I am sending here ;)

Code: [Select]
#DIM ALL
#COMPILE EXE
%USEMACROS = 1
#INCLUDE "Win32API.inc"


FUNCTION PBMAIN() AS LONG
     LOCAL Number$
     LOCAL E AS LONG
     LOCAL F AS LONG
     LOCAL G AS LONG

    Number$ = INPUTBOX$("multiply some values..","Simple Inputbox_Test","5.86") : E = VAL(Number$)

    MSGBOX "number$= "+Number$+" val(number$)= " +STR$(VAL(Number$))+ " E = " +STR$(E),%MB_OK, "one.."

    Number$ = INPUTBOX$("enter second value: ","LionBasic Inputbox_Test","16.49") : F = VAL(Number$)

    MSGBOX "E ="+STR$(E)+" number$ = " + Number$ +" val(number$) = "+STR$(VAL(Number$))+" F = "+STR$(F), %MB_OK, "two.."

    MSGBOX "value E = " + STR$(E)+ " value F = " + STR$(F) + " multiply: E * F = " + STR$(E*F), %MB_OK, "three.."
    G = E * F

    MSGBOX "result [e+f] : G = " + STR$(G), %MB_OK, "final result"


END FUNCTION

perhaps somebody can help. I want to include this feature in my lionbasic demo. best way would be to have an inputbox field or inputmask where the user can type in values and get by button-click (result) the answer. I have tried this one with a DLL but haven't yet grasp it. sorry.

best regards, Frank

Re: demo LionBasic Warp + calculator
« Reply #10 on: October 21, 2009, 09:45:55 PM »
thanks josé !

but some values or hex numbers doesn't work at petzold's example correct ;) type in: 8*6 = 30 (???), not a joke!

but here I have a nearly complete calculator example with callbacks:

there are only these code lines wrong ("val" needs a "string", I know, but this doesn't work at all):

for example:
Code: [Select]
tmpStr = VAL(FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00) )
...

%pct or pct = 1/100 ' does it mean: percent as long
...

tmpStr = VAL(VAL(tmpStr) & "." & FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00))

perhaps you or anybody else can fix it, so this calculator works perfect :)

Code: [Select]
       
... I have deleted this code. I will try to fix whole calculator code and publish again, sorry...

It is an hexadecimal calculator, not a decimal one. In hexadecimal, 8*6 = 30.

I'm afraid you must re-read the topics for VAL and FORMAT$ in the help file. VAL returns a numeric value, therefore you are using it improperly.

Code: [Select]
tmpStr = VAL(FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00) )

must be:

Code: [Select]
tmpStr = FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00)

Code: [Select]
tmpStr = VAL(VAL(tmpStr) & "." & FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00))

must be:

Code: [Select]
tmpStr = tmpStr & "." & FORMAT$(CBWPARAM - %CtrlN00)

No, it does not. Equates in PB are integer values and %pct = 1/100 will be 0.

Later you're using it as if it was a function:

Code: [Select]
%Pct(VAL(PrevVal), VAL(tmpStr) )

Equates are constant values, not functions or macros.

Code: [Select]
perhaps you or anybody else can fix it, so this calculator works perfect

Impossible to fix it easily. You have switched again to DDT and you won't be able to detect the keystrokes. If you want to use DDT, the PB Forum has recently opened a dedicated forum: http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pbforums/forumdisplay.php?f=33

short: hello josé :)

1) first: yes you are right, I have read something wrong, sorry... "VAL" turns a string argument into a number, I had read it too fast, sorry. here a correct example for it.

Code: [Select]
#COMPILE EXE
#DIM ALL

FUNCTION PBMAIN () AS LONG

DIM i AS LONG
DIM j AS LONG
DIM x AS LONG
DIM y AS LONG

i& = VAL("&HF5F3")       ' Hex, returns -2573 (signed)
MSGBOX "hex: " + STR$(i&)

j& = VAL("&H0F5F3")      ' Hex, returns 62963 (unsigned)
MSGBOX "hex: " + STR$(j&)


x& = VAL("&B0100101101") ' Binary, returns 301 (unsigned)
MSGBOX "binary: " + STR$(x&)

y& = VAL("&O4574514")    ' Octal, returns 1243468 (signed)
MSGBOX "octal: " + STR$(y&)


END FUNCTION

2) thank you for your prompted help, I will check the code of the calculator again to fix it.

3) yes, petzold has done really a hexadecimal calculator, I see it! uargh!

4) thank you, may be the right one: I have found this example I needed for input test and get feedback, great!

5) better to learn with existing examples, so I can see how does it work. I have found this ddt example (calculator) to understand these things with callbacks, I didn't want really to switch to ddt ;)  more to come, you will see.

best regards, nice evening, frank
