GUIDgen (GUID Generator, WinFBE User Tool)
« on: August 17, 2017, 08:18:10 PM »

GUIDgen is a very simple GUID generator that can easily be set up as a WinFBE User Tool.

Full source code, WinFBE project, and 32/64 bit exes are attached.
Simply generate the GUID and copy to the clipboard and paste into your source code.

Excellent. Just to let you know that you have at least one user that tries what you do :)

A little suggestion (and I never get offended if my suggestions are discarded): If the user pastes a GUI in the first textbox, it could be transated to the TYPE format automatically. There are tons of GUIDs in headers using the first format and it's always a pain to translate them to the TYPE format.

This addition/change has now been made. The original post has been updated and the new files attached.

Excellent. This will save me time in the long term because there are thousands of GUIDs available in the first format and it is always a pain to translate them to the TYPE format by hand. And, above all, it avoids mistakes.

Just a note to you both to say thank you for all of your hard work.

I am mainly silent but constantly amazed by your selfless efforts.

I am sure there are many silent others who feel the same.

Chris.

Thanks Chris that's very nice of you to say!

We are getting very close for PowerBasic users to being able to completely switch to FreeBasic and enjoy full 32 bit and 64 bit application development. Jose has most, if not all, of PB's functionality duplicated in the Afx framework.
