Book Available

My first, and probably only, wikibook.

If anyone can suggest where I might upload the programming examples (about 30 of them, but they fit into a 2MB zip file) I would be grateful. The code can always be copied from the wiki pages. I see an Attachments button below but I'm not sure if this is the place. Thanks.

This will help me big time, I need this. Maybe admins could make a spot for tutorials and examples on the forum for content like that.

Cudos for all that hard work.
Really liked the Function Reference. (and lots of other stuff)
I 'sometimes' do things the hard way, forgetting that there is a small in-built function to do what I need.
Cheers - Quin.

OK the book is now available from Gambas.One and all the example programs are there as well. The book is on the menu bar or click here.

Well done to Gerry! :D

I haven't had a chance to look at the book yet since I haven't had much Gambas time in the past 3 months. I'm sure I'll be able to learn a lot from it. This is something that has been lacking for Gambas for a very long time. Thanks!

I'm wondering around lost in the past, not knowing where the present is.

Gambas From Zip Notebook Program

Post by GerardBuzolic » Friday 11th October 2019 10:44am

With the latest Gambas, the Tray Icon Notebook (last of the sample programs) is giving an error.
When the form becomes visible with two middle-clicks on the tray icon there is a message saying "Connection already open".
It can be fixed with the addition of one word, TRY, in the sub called ConnectDatabase.

Public Sub ConnectDatabase()

  db1.Type = "sqlite"
  db1.host = User.home
  db1.name = "Notebook.sqlite"
  Try db1.Open 'Form seems to process the Open event when it becomes visible now with latest Gambas. Database may be already connected.
  SelectAllNotes

End

Hi Gerry,

Send me the whole .zip with the correction and I will change it for you.

Charlie.
