Thanks Clive, I have found the problem. Null pointer resulting in GPF. Basically, calling properties on a Form such as top, left, width, height, location, size, etc... would cause a GPF. I won't bore you with the details as to why there was a null pointer. I have it fixed now and will soon upload a new WinFBE package for everyone to try.

Hi Paul,
Still having crash issues with Width and Height. I must have a setting wrong but I can't figure out what I've changed that would cause this consistent crash issue.
The image is a screenshot of the C:\WinFBE_Suite\Sample_Projects\VisualDesigner\FormTest.wfbe It compiles a runs properly; add the line ? sender.Width and the program will crash at that line.

We admire your work Paul and that of Jose.

I'am looking forword to a LISTVIEW CONTROL to start with a new project in WinFBE.

Thanks Peter - a lot of work left to go yet. I am finding (and fixing) issues every day.

Thanks Josť, I will rework the logic of my visual designer to store both the image resource name and its type and then modify the image control to call a specific routine for each of the types (image, bitmap, icon).

Icons and bitmaps aren't stored in resource files as raw data. Therefore, the data must be interpreted.

Regarding icons, read this Raymond Chen's article:

Regarding bitmaps, apparently are stored as DIBs.

Maybe a solution could be to load the icon or bitmap using LoadImage.

Maybe I spoke too soon. It seems to work for the RT_RCDATA types but not for RT_ICON or RT_BITMAP.

I have create a small test project (see attached).

Could you try it on your system to see if you get the same results as I do. Extraction of icons fails (I tried two different icons). Bitmap extracts to the file but it produces a file format that will not load. The PNG (using RCDATA) seems to be okay.

As I am reading these updates I get really excited to the idea of that visual designer.
I have not made anything in the past 6 months and neither am i going too until that designer is done.
(It just makes life so easy for us hobbyists)

Something i would love to see, is a TAB CONTROL where you could choose to have NO TABS at all.
In other words a TAB control with NO TABS, or by choice then.
Darn, that makes "one page look" programs much easier than child forms.

Thanks for the hard work you are putting into it.

Lots of changes to the visual designer backend (that's the WinFormsX library). As I am writing this business program, I am finding real world use case problems with the code. I will start releasing visual designer updates later this week.

Hi Jim, great to see you getting back into programming!

The Tab Control will come eventually. I am writing a business application using the visual designer and it is proving to be a great way for me to find (and fix) problems with the underlying visual designer library. I have found a number of them already. The next few WinFBE updates will all be visual designer related.
