WinFBE Suite 1.7.9 (September 5, 2018)
« on: September 05, 2018, 06:09:34 PM »

Version 1.7.9 (September 1.7.9)
- Fixed: Relative paths in User Tools commands failing after compiles (a compile would change current folder).
- Fixed: Per 1.7.8, accidentally neglected to include latest FBC nightly build and GCC 8.1. It is now included in 1.7.9.

Hello Paul

The new package does not yet contain the current German language package.
In the previous version different translations don't match anymore.
Possibly strings were inserted, so that the line number has changed

Hi Paul,
very good job, nice to have only 1 folder for freebasic 32/64

may i suggest some evolutions

first : the folder management in general could be improved ,
    when you want to modify the language, the lang folder is not directly shown
             as you know what relative place it is from Winfbe that can be direct
    when you have opened files from different folders , if you want to save file to different name it is not easy
            because the proposed folder is always the current folder not necessarily the folder where the file is currently...
    has also to take care about new created, at least the proposed saving folder could be somewhere relative to examples files...

second : help management F1 for winapi , winfbx, winformsx
    as you have/could have .chm files for each of them ( i remind  my win32_fb.chm),
    it will be nice to connect the f1 for their keywords

third : extend colors for winapi , winfbx, winformsx keywords
    i think the lexer is allowing only 1 keyword list, i know it can be extended to at least 6 different ...
    but even whith 1 keyword list (including every of them) it could be suffisant, all keywords same color

the second and third item could use that included win_api_keywords (i use it in my csed_fb)

Of course.

Excellent! Thanks - I will ensure that this file is included with the next package upload.

For listbox, most likely others, some auto-complete/hints/whatever they are called, are not there. e.g. .items.add also, I think some options should be deselected. e.g. you can select 'form1.list1.list1.list1'. I actually had to rtfm (VisualDesigner-tips.pdf) to find how to additems.  :o

Yes, thanks, I realize that the sub element types were not part of the autocomplete. I will try to get them added for the next update.

Hi Paul,
The view menu seems to behave a bit odd for me.
None of the fold options work. Zoom is OK. Sometimes with explorer and code window open, dragging the boundary between them to resize the code window, the cursor does not 'let go'. It may be a 'sticky mouse button, or something else on my pc, but I've not noticed that behavior elsewhere. I can get out of it by double clicking in the code/designer tab.

In the designer, any chance of having an option for equally spacing components?

Best wishes,

Ray

I noticed that behaviour a while back. Perhaps its a feature, not a bug! ;)
