Re: ScreenShot

Hi John, Yes I past the forklift training, not bad for a pensioner. Regarding the 'Lock' situation I think you have the wrong idea about this. Have a look here. After some experimentation we found that the 'Last' is not changed by the 'Message Box' so you don't need the 'Lock' anyway, try the code b...

Re: help converting function from vb6 to gambas

The art of working out what the character set of a file requires a bit of guess works I am told. However there is a nice command line tool that seems to do this very well. It's called 'uchardet'. You will probably need to install this. Consider the following code: - Public Sub Form_Open() ConvertFil...

Re: ScreenShot

Hi John and all, I have not had a lot of time in the last 3 days as I have been having Forklift training! I think I have managed to get this to work as you expect. Have a look at the SelectWindow.class. There is still one problem, if a program is opened while ScreenShot is open and you click on it t...

Re: ScreenShot

Hi John, Do you find the same problem with Gambas Farm as I do: namely the slow response when scrolling down the app details after a search with no parameters set? Have a look at my internet speed here then how the Farm looks on my computer here Your If statement above is very long I can't split tha...

Re: ScreenShot

Hi John, You mentioned a farm somewhere...... Where are the instructions for uploading apps into it? Menu Project > Publish will get you on the Farm. You can view the farm from Tools > Software farm or from Gambas.one here . I'm still a little unclear about the Expanded property of a Form. Does it e...

Re: ScreenShot

What does the SkipTaskbar property of the Desktop Window object actually mean? If SkipTaskbar is set to True then when you open the window it will NOT appear on the taskbar. This is handy if your program opens more that one window and you don't want the taskbar filled up with your windows. Would a ...

Re: Import multimedia files (.png, .mp3) into the project

How can I do this same operation in Gambas 3, so that these files are incorporated into my compiled application? Place the files you want in the application's folder (From the menu Tools > Browse project.. ) How can I load a ".png" located inside my project into a PictureBox? You can add it in the ...

Re: ScreenShot

Hi John, still think that the help within Gambas3 when coding a class could be explained better This is and has been an issue. When you understand something you can create an account and then edit the help pages yourself. The idea is take a screenshot of the available desktop (i.e. the whole of my m...
