Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, I haven't yet had time to take a look at those books. In the SelectArea app, I noticed that your version had a Horizontal Panel (in the FMain form) with the Select & Hint buttons. There was a Spring control placed between (connecting?) the 2 buttons. What does it do? I'm now trying to get m...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, Thanks for your invaluable help. I'm not a professional developer: I left programming behind (except for Oracle database coding, and dabbling in Visual Basic when I was a Uni Lecturer, when I became a Business/Systems Analyst decades ago). SelectArea app now works fine. Now moving onto Sele...

Re: ScreenShot

I've just downloaded the attached tar.gz, extracted its files and opened the resultant project. You've got some things that I didn't have: As I wasn't able to find the Mode command (in the Gambas documentation), could you tell me what it (& its argument does)?

Select Area using mouse

I have an app which includes a facility to select an area on the screen's available desktop. I've stripped the app down so that the FMain form just has a button to call the FSelectArea form. The area is selected by mouse button down on the left top corner and dragging to the bottom right corner and ...
