Re: Renting a VPS

Thanks for the info Cogier. The cost for me is about $6.00 a month for a "droplet" (£5.00), this depends on usage As I understand a 'droplet' is a VPS. They advertise with fixed amounts, so how does usage influence your cost? Do you have full root access to your VPS 'droplet' so you can install what...

Renting a VPS

Hi all, I'm looking to rent a VPS. I want to revamp my 'How to Gambas' and 'Gambas Learning' projects as they kind of ended when Sholzy quit hosting the Whiteislands forum. I have a lot of spare time atm. since I recently lost my job. Sidenote: I actually worked for a company where I setup a Debian ...

Re: barcode scanner component

Hi, I run into this same problem a while ago. First of all, forget SerialPort, it is way more simple (as Cogier already stated). The USB barcode scanner acts as keyboard input. Make a form with a TextBox (let's call it tbxBarCode) and a Label (let's call it lblScannedBarCode) Next apply following co...

Re: Barcode scanner

I used to just monitor a TextBox for keyboard entry, something like this: Private Sub txbBarCodeInput_KeyPress() If Chr(13) Then ' This is the last non-text character from BCreader ' Put Code here EndIf End Sub This is just from memory but hopefully will give you an idea to work from. Make sure the...

Re: Barcode scanner

Hi gbWilly, long time no hear! I have written barcode reading programs, but I have always used a USB reader, which is seen by the computer as a keyboard. Once the gun has read the code, it sends the text to the keyboard with a newline on the end. Hi Cogier, I am using a USB reader and reading your ...

Barcode scanner

Hi you all, I'm currently trying to figure out how to make an application to scan barcodes. I have a USB barcode scanner to scan the barcodes. I have been searching this forum and other places (like wiki) to figure out how to get this done but nothing was really helpful. I presume I need to use Seri...

Re: Email with smtp a pdf

I had a look at this and discovered (thanks to gbWilly) that you need to load the PDF file, and then it works as expected. Try the following:-

Re: A Gambas Newbie questions

Hi AndieGamble Also I have a custom wrote DLL that handles the tills promotions (written in VB.net) I did not write this I paid someone to do that for me can I still use it with Gambas?

Re: unable to create working installation rpm

Hi sadams54,

Apparently the package util-linux-2.35.1-1.fc32.x86_64 already contains a file/binary named 'rename'.
That's what causes your conflict as your package is also named 'rename'

I suggest you name your package differently and try again.
