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

Liberty Basic 5

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

Look at the OLD LBB Forum

Has anyone looked at the old LBB Conforums Forum recently. I've not looked at it for ages and I decided to have a look today. I'd forgotten just how much good stuff there is in there. It's well worth a look. There are some very good discussions and lots of example code with associated explanations; ...
