Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Hi Richard It's my poor coding. It was under my nose and I couldn't see it! As you say, BBC Basic and most other languages I know have a flag at the end of the textbox statement, which is why I think it is more logical; draw the control and then decide what you want to do with it. As you say Stylebi...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Or maybe if I moved maphandle out of the Select Case section and dropped it down the code to just above next and then had the Stylebits before the textbox and it works as I expected it to. However, I still think that logically you should produce the textbox before deciding what format it should take...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Richard i hear what you are saying, but I didn't just put the statements in a FOR..NEXT loop, I put the statements in a SELECT CASE within the FOR..NEXT loop. The Stylebits and textbox statements come under CASE 10 and I would expect that in evaluating CASE 10 all other CASE statements would be igno...

Re: ADDRESS MANAGER

Richard Under this series of posts we discussed the position of Stylebits relative to an associated textbox; whether it should come before or after the textbox. At the time I tried out alternative positions, but it didn't seem to matter. You said that logically it should come after the textbox (and ...

Re: 'Comment' character(s)

I'm not sure that you can do block comments, but in respect of an editor for LBB, if you don't want to use the LBB editor, try LB Workshop. I use it for all my editing. Although it is old and no longer supported, it was written specifically for LB and works with Windows 10 ( I have not yet updated t...

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...
