Re: DateTime Error

I had this error and want to confirm that its not just me. Can someone else please try this with a DateTime box; if it is a real bug, I'll log it formally... No, it seems to work as expected for me on 3.12.90 (...and on 3.12.2). The error message: "Type mismatch: Wanted Date , got string instead." ...

Re: Buttons access like an array

...Next question - I have looked around at the variable declarations, I will need some global variables but I don't know where to declare them - I have tried above all my 'public sub' subroutines - I have tried in each subroutine and Gambas just says "Unexpected Dim ...

Re: so silent

A question then from an ex VB user... I'd like to wish you a speedy recovery Digitaus and (as this looks like your first post) welcome to the forum! You should able to take Gambas code and reuse it, either as just a class file that you add to a Gambas project when needed, or as a Gambas Library. Ca...

Re: Initial screen too big ...or is it just me?

But now you are using the ' Development ' version V3.12.90. Was that your intention? Well I think I compiled the latest Stable version as 18.10 didn't have Gambas in the Repository.
