Re: Strange Stuff with the Gambas editor

Thanks Cedron, The one other thing I noticed about the Gambas implementation on Mint is that TextBox backgrounds are no longer white by default but are form background(?) colour. If you change them manually, you still get a ugly border of the original colour a few pixels wide. I'll try the QT5 solut...

Strange Stuff with the Gambas editor

I have 2 issues in the code editor which have been plaguing me for a while. I've seen nothing on the email list or here on the Forum so have to assume that it may well be a MAMCO. (Me And My Computer Only). The concern is that I had this on Ubuntu 18.n and have just recently moved to Mint 19.1 (Tess...

I 'sometimes' do things the hard way, forgetting that there is a small in-built function to do what I need.

Re: 1st Time User Gambas Questions(Former VB6 user)

There is a small issue with the Return statement when used with Try/Catch/Finally Error management. In this example: Try {some task} Return {Result} Finally {Do some closing task} Catch {Handle Error} In the case of no error occurring, the Return statement works as required but the Finally statement...

And this is slower! Consequently, DON'T USE ...
