Re: Converting DLL to Gambas Libary

Can you get the source code?

If you have paid for it i'd ask for the source.
you may be able to re-write/convert it by hand

or if the dll is not useable then get the FreeBasic version of the library

Re: Converting DLL to Gambas Libary

You should just be able to load the dll into gambas.

Not my area of expertise I'm afraid, Steve and Voutt are masters of this kind of thing.
As long as you have the function names/parameters details it "should" be not too complicated.

Re: PDF quandary - A cry for clarity.

All your code does is print text to a file. Just because you name it *.pdf does not make it a pdf file. :roll: I should think you will have to use an external program to convert the print text into pdf format Or learn how to manually write pdf format. It's not going to happen all by itself ;) Welcom...

Re: PDF quandary - A cry for clarity.

Are you not using poppler?

I know not what exactly poppler does but it is the gambas pdf component, i'd should think it worth using if you want to do pdf related things.
It might just be for reading pdf docs not writing

Re: Automatic change of Row Height with WordWrap ?

I just found something, but it’s way beyond my pay grade. I checked the project properties and noticed that in ‘Components’ ‘gb.qt4’ is disabled. I tried to enable it, but got a message that gb.gui and gb.qt4 are incompatible. So I disabled gb.gui and now RichTextSize no longer gives an error. But ...
