Printing example

Post by bill-lancaster » Monday 20th August 2018 7:29am

Going mad here!
I had a nice example of printing text or image and some how lost it.
Can anyone talk me through finding and downloading an example?
I can download from the Gambas intro page but nothing seems to result. Likewise the facility on Gambas One

I have just uploaded an example on the Farm. Can you not download it? I have just downloaded from here http://gambas.one/gambasfarm/ and it worked OK for me.

I have uploaded my example and another one here for you.

Thanks, clicked on the lower of the two 'Download' buttons. No indication of activity, nothing in my download folder.
Many thanks for the attachment though - much appreciated

The file you attached downloads to my 'downloads' folder, extracting it produces an almost empty folder - just a .png file. I must be doing something wrong

The other files are there but you can't see them as they are 'hidden'. In you File Manager try pressing [Ctrl] + H to un-hide them. Dolphin: use [Alt] ++.

Does that help? Gambas should see the files once they have been extracted.

Sorry, no hidden files and Gambas opens an empty project.
Have found a copy of the example I wanted from an old backup but am still puzzled at how hard it is to download examples. I've had no more success with the Gambas Farm
Your help has been appreciated.
