Re: Gambas on Windows

That's part of the problem. The windows cannot be moved because they are modal to the top-level window. The dialogue window seems to be insensitive to any operator input. It's like the app suddenly ceases to exist as far as the OS is concerned. Task Manager shows no CPU activity for either the app o...

Re: Gambas on Windows

Sorry. Same results as I originally posted. The dialogue window for choosing the project opens, but that is as far as I can get. There is NO way to actually open that project, nor is there a way to get out of that dialogue box. Clicking various projects only causes the dialogue box to refresh, not t...

Re: Gambas on Windows

Perhaps I am misunderstanding something, but I followed all the instructions and now can bring up Gambas3 (latest version) on my Windows 10 machine in an X-window. My problem is the startup screen where I am to create, choose, or search for a project. I absolutely cannot get beyond that screen. Once...

Re: How to display a round object?

When I created the main form, I set Resize to False. If it goes True, none of the controls will resize or move from their original positions. Yes, I do have a widescreen monitor (1920 x 1080). What seems strange, to me anyway, is the double representation of the three lit lights and the rotary switc...

Re: How to display a round object?

So as not to keep anyone in suspense, here's what I've come up with so far. I'll add the working file as an attachment. I know it is FULL of outright horrible programming techniques, but I tend to attack a problem, solve it, THEN make it pretty. Seems to be easier that way. It's a simple thing, the ...

Re: How to display a round object?

Interesting thread, Cedron. The Author in me couldn't resist a little editing. In the last post of the thread: "run it up the flag pool" ??? Sorry. it's my OCD kicking in.

Re: How to display a round object?

Great suggestions. Last first: @Jornmo: I saw the gauge and fiddled with it for an hour or so. If I were making a continuous rotating object, it would be fine, but I needed snap-to steps of 30 degrees. Individual pictures seemed the best way to go, displayed as the perimeter letters were clicked. @G...

Re: How to display a round object?

Seems as if I've solved the problem from way outside the box (no pun intended). I just made the buttons for the register letters larger than they would have been to include the short marker line and overlay a picture onto the button that covers the four "skirts" of gray nicely. Are any of the devs t...

Re: How to display a round object?

I'm using QT5 and QT5 Extension. I don't see anything about transparent for a picturebox, though. I've been trying all morning to make the four corners (the areas in Gray) transparent, but haven't had any luck. I'm not proficient in Gimp enough to extract the circular switch and leave the rest trans...
