Re: Any issues upgrading to Gambas 3.15 stable in Mint 19.3?

Thanks for the upgrade info; I tried it again your way and I am happy so far, except for a warning similar to yours --Steve S (GambasGuiGeneric:56871): Gtk-WARNING **: 17:03:30.481: for_size smaller than min-size (16 < 17) while measuring gadget (node button , owner GtkScrollbar) (GambasGuiGeneric:...

Re: Any issues upgrading to Gambas 3.15 stable in Mint 19.3?

Taking into consideration the replies to this thread, I decided to test one of my old computers running Mint 19.3 and Gambas 3.14. Since I needed to do a complete removal of Gambas 3.14 anyway, to do a clean upgrade to 3.15, I decided I'd just go ahead and upgrade the computer to Mint 20 and after d...

Any issues upgrading to Gambas 3.15 stable in Mint 19.3?

I haven't upgraded to Mint 20 yet, after I heard it has issues with the new version of Gambas. I don't think I need Mint 20 that badly. But is the install of Gambas 3.15 stable painless and problem-free on Mint 19.3? If so, would then upgrading to Mint 20 bork an otherwise clean-running install of G...

Re: help converting function from vb6 to gambas

Tiberius, welcome to Gambas. I also came from enjoying VB6 for years, and missing it terribly. Gambas is a godsend. I played around with your functions and i got them to work. I had to take some liberties to change things around a bit. For example, "Temp" is already a built-in function in Gambas. An...

Re: How to use Spinner

I tried you program and the spinner did keep spinning while it was running, but it stopped after I got about 100 errors in the console and the text area. testSpinner:26163): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 14:33:22.484: gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert: assertion 'g_utf8_validate (text, len, NULL)' failed then it stop...

Re: How to use Spinner

I don't use the spinner control in my applications. But this thread caught my attention due to the suggestion of using "Task" to remedy the OP's problem. I use "Task" extensively. For living room super-computing, its a godsend. Out of curiosity, I threw this code together to see if using a spinner c...

Re: Help for a beginner.

Ok, I'm using Linux Mint 18.3. The first line of the program entered is "Static Function TextHeight(Text as string) as Integer" which gives error "Unexpected Static in FMain.Class:4." I also got an error on a line "Draw.ForeColor = Color.Black" I changed this one to read "Draw.Foreground = Color.Bl...

Re: Help for a beginner.

This Youtube user has about 20 or 30 Gambas tutorial videos (scroll down a bit to find them). The videos cover all the basic functionality and controls, so they're probably exactly what you're looking for. They're fairly old, using Gambas 2. But the basic functionality should be the same. https://ww...

Re: Object serialization, allowing save and load of class structure data

@Godzilla, This is another area that I'm glad someone is tackling. I used to do this in C# but am still too new in Gambas and am still catching up yet. This is huge (as in 'important'); Keep up the good work! 8-) Steve Hey Steve, thank you for your reply and interest. Yes, S/D is really nothing new...

Re: Object serialization, allowing save and load of class structure data

Hi Godzilla, I must say I find this a quite interesting concept you've been working on. Could you post the application with all added corrections so I can have a closer look at it all. I might have some good use for it in one of my projects. And thanks for figuring it all out ;) Hey gbWilly, thank ...
