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

So I looked into this: http://gambaswiki.org/wiki/comp/gb.settings/settings and this seems like it could only handle form Objects... It's probably obvious for you guys where I'm trying to achieve here(Creating a database for the application to access files when needed.) So starting off, I'm trying t...

Re: Book Available

https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Programming_Gambas_from_Zip My first, and probably only, wikibook. If anyone can suggest where I might upload the programming examples (about 30 of them, but they fit into a 2MB zip file) I would be grateful. The code can always be copied from the wiki pages.

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

That helped me. :P Just use: - Return True not .FileExist = True Thank you. That makes more sense. I'm still in a habit of coding in vb6.
