Re: Buttons access like an array

Hi waspentalive, I'm a VB.net developer and came from a background of VB6 (many many years ago...) You are going to love Gambas and the learning curve is not too steep . The function you need is the 'Group' property that you will see in all ( I think ?) GUI components. If you click on the 'Group' pr...

Re: Functional losses while using a Detached Tab

Hi Eric
I'm running Ubuntu 18.4 with Gambas 3.12.90 and I can search for text within the code base of detached tabs.
If I detach a GUI form, I can also get the properties dialogue when clicking on a component.

What version of Gambas are you running ?

Re: SQLite help

Forgot to mention - don't worry about IO time with your transactions.
Gambas if very fast and the SQLite engine is not too bad either so i would just 'see how you go' before you start to worry about that. Unless you need the data transacted in near real time then you should be fine.

Re: SQLite help

No problems Godzilla, I'm semi-retired so it was a fun project to do and a good way to pass on some knowledge to you and anyone else who wants to see a working example. XML files will work really well with a similar core structure so you are well set up to experiment with it. The bit's I learnt was ...

Re: SQLite help

Finally done and had a lot of fun putting this together and learnt a few new things along the way. This is a simple sales transaction application using SQLite and provides an example of how it can be used. Note # I use my personal coding style and this example is meant as a simple reference Not a 'b...

Re: SQLite help

Almost finished and have examples of just about all you want to do. Some tidy up and testing to be done but should be able to post shortly. How is the data coming in ? Text file, Serial port, Ftp, Other ? If it's a bunch of text files in a folder then on application start you can just grab them all ...

Re: SQLite help

Hi Godzilla. Your code is fine and you seem to have grasped the basics well. I do a lot of SQL programming in both MySQL & SQLite in Gambas so please feel free to ask any questions you have and I'll try to assist - this is what the forum is for. Few things... If your program is going to be just a pe...

Re: textLabel.Text ... stripping spaces from text

The TextLabel control displays text more like a html page and can have embedded (simple) html code such as... <p>...</p> <br> <b>...</b> <h2>...</h2> I'd suspect that this is a 'feature' as its really the end result of however the html parser works in Gambas. I tried this and it will embed 10 X spac...

Re: How best to move a control

Thanks Bill,
Put me on the list for code sharing once you're done. - Thanks
I collect code snippets and once I have enough of a similar type , I create a "tool-box class" for them.

Re: How best to move a control

Hi Bill, You could put the view object where you create your family tree in a scroll view control and in that way you could just have a 'static' tree drawn and the user could just scroll the contents. Would be interested in seeing the code when you finished as I would be interested in seeing how you...
