Test Your Program's IQ

Here's a fun program to test the IQ of your programs. It reports a raw score primarily based on the number of logical expressions in the .bas file. Most of the complexity is ensuring that conditional keywords are not accidently picked up in remarks or strings. Lately, at the urging of Richard, I ha...

Re: Disabled or Hidden Control still has Focus

Relax Richard – nobody is wishing for your death. You have many friends in this forum, and you can count me as one of them. I consider LBB to be a great program, and it logically follows that I consider you to be a great software engineer. I use that term in awe and admiration. I'm sorry if you perc...

Re: Disabled or Hidden Control still has Focus

Maybe I don't explain things clearly. Run my demo program under LBB. It opens with a window containing only a disabled button. Press the spacebar, and the button behaves completely normally, not as if it were disabled. The same thing happens if you open the program with the button hidden, which is e...

Disabled or Hidden Control still has Focus

When a program is started, a disabled or hidden control can still have focus and be activated by the spacebar. Is it possible to fix this on the next release? Thanks.

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

Thank you, Aurel, for this additional information regarding the 'cursor stops blinking' issue. It happens on every Windows 10 PC, so this rules out a problem with my particular machine. So, then, how does one find the 'something' that is wrong with the edit control attributes or style? I'm sure you ...

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

One more, hopefully last, question. What API call is used to invoke the text editor control? What DLL, what parameters?
