Re: A strange problem in BBC Basic forum?

Have I solved the problem? When you first enter the forum, the area in the top right hand corner where you log in is blank. There is also the message at the top of the forum which you have to click to accept cookies before you can access any forum section to view. Clicking this Clears the message an...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Richard
Thank you for your response. It sounds as though I won't have any problems in respect of space in the textbox, so I'll carry on until a problem arises.

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I have made one or two changes to MyAddressBook. They are mainly cosmetic, but suit my requirements better. The Notes section has been relocated and increased in size. This has enabled the Contacts Listbox to be increased in depth. The result is to be able t...

Re: Formatting Numeric Input

We seem to have sorted out how to input numeric values into a single textbox with a validity check on each character as it is entered. So my next step is to enable this in a grid of textboxes. I had previously a solution that partially worked (it did not include entering a "0" before a decimal poin...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Richard It doesn't seem natural. When you look at other implementations of Basic (Purebasic, Powerbasic, BBC Basic, etc) these all have styles implemented at the end or near the end of the control code. In other words the code is read from left to right and it is set up before the style is added to ...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Richard Thanks for your response. It shows that you should look at someone else's code carefully before committing yourself to its use. I copied the code into LBB and ran it successfully, but decided it needed tidying up. I didn't notice the duplication of handles between statictext and textboxes. I...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

I appreciate that a simple address book is not everybody's requirement and some may want a Contacts Manager. I had another look at the Just basic Archives and came up with the following Contacts Manager. It was originally written for Liberty Basic by Sean Fennell and modified by C.W. Rodriguez. It's...

ADDRESS MANAGER

I needed an Address Manager for my PC and I decided to obtain or produce one written in Liberty Basic. After searching LB, LBB and JB, I finally found one in the JB Archives written by jabas http://jbfilesarchive.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1501 . It is not as complicated as some that I looked at...

Re: Liberty Basic 5

I thought that was the case, but I've been brought up to ask the stupid question.

LB5 looks as if it has promise, but it has still some way to go and the GUI output is still very basic.

Liberty Basic 5

I notice that Carl Gundel is developing Liberty Basic 5. Is there any interest from Richard in making LBB compatible?
