WinFBE 2.1.8 development
« on: November 18, 2020, 08:52:01 AM »

Good morning folks,

I am finally back to coding the next version of WinFBE and hope to have it released very soon. I am just working through a number of issues and bugs that have been reported in the forum over the past few months.

Here is what has been fixed/added:

Version 2.1.8
- Polish language file provided by Waldemar Pajak.
- Updated Italian language file provided by Massimiliano.
- For/Next loop variables were sometimes not being correctly identified when that option was enabled in Editor Options.

Visual Designer:
- DateTimePicker control: font property not set correctly at run time.
- Menu Editor: added blank line to dropdown Shortcut key combobox so you can unselect any previously set shortcut key.
- PictureBox control: added property 'ImageFromFile' to be able to load images from disk.
- ListBox: backcolor of an empty list box was not being handled correctly.

Here is what I am working on fixing:

- ListBox refresh issues;topicseen#msg34542

- Multiline comment blocks in form functions with no other code causes function to be regenerated.;topicseen#msg34632

- Default save file extension for new forms should be .inc (contained in Projects) in order to place them in the correct branch of the explorer tree.

I do have other long standing issues that I will try to fix for the next release if I have time but the ones above are the primary ones that I want to get fixed.

Hi Paul, and Yay!

Specifically, the ImageFromFile property will be a welcome addition and should simplify things for me. Thanks.
