WinFBE Suite 2.1.8 (November 19, 2020)
« on: November 19, 2020, 11:11:47 AM »

Version 2.1.8 (November 19, 2020)

Editor:
- 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.
- Multiline comment blocks inside of sub/function blocks was not being parsed correctly causing sub/function definitions in the visual designer to be regenerated.
- The "Refresh" method would appear twice in the codetip popup menu for Forms.
- New Form files will default to .inc file extension if a project is active, otherwise the file extension will default to .bas.

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.

Thanks for the new release, Paul.
Early observations:
1) Textbox cursor is either missing or not flashing. Changing TextBox properties did not fix the issue. My project's frmMain does not exhibit this issue, just a subform called from frmMain.
2) MessageBox() initially missing:
Code: [Select]
If MessageBox(frmJedit.hWindow,"Delete? (No Undo)", "Delete Entry: " + Str(jdb.Current_Item), MB_YESNO + MB_ICONQUESTION) = IDYES Then
'or
If MessageBox(Null,"Delete? (No Undo)", "Delete Entry: " + Str(jdb.Current_Item), MB_YESNO + MB_ICONQUESTION) = IDYES Then
To see the MessageBox requires tapping the ALT key, then the box pops up but without sound (in this case MB_ICONQUESTION)
:)

Not sure how you implemented Latest Version checking, but wanted to report that version 2.1.7 reports that it's the newest version.

Hi Paul, wfxDateTimePicker: Not responding to user input. Though it works properly programmatically. Using .TimeFormat.

Ah, yes, looks like I forgot to update the version number on the server. I am getting old and forgetful. :-)

Hi paul,

Just in case nobody noticed, intelligence shows multiply long data type when adding header files.
The list of longs gets longer and longer as you add more header files.
luckily it doesn't matter which one you choose .  :-\

Some controls are not being redrawn when an empty listbox is present.
Compiling the code as is, should create a window, that when you minimize and restore, does not redraw all the controls.
Mousing over the label draws the label.
Dragging the window draws the missing frame and spin UpDown button.

Modifying the code to add one item to both listboxes should create a window without these drawing problems.

Edit:
I've noticed an unusually high CPU usage with this gui. 5-7% according to Task Manager.

Hi. Very new to WinFBE but liking it more and more.

One thing I noticed when saving a new file, in the Save As dialog the file name textbox is showing an extra period:

Untitled1..bas

The other options for file type also display both periods.

I'm not sure if this was by design or not, but I didn't see anywhere in the settings that I could change it myself.

Thanks for a great tool.

Welcome, Dale!
I'm still using 2.1.7 and I haven't noticed it exhibiting that behaviour. However, I just tried the same procedure with 2.1.8 and the double dots appeared as per your earlier post.
I changed the file name in the Save As dialog box, removing the second dot (which was successful). Try using 2.1.7.
Also, when you add a module, be sure to set it as "Normal" not "Module" in the File Explorer.

Hi, yes, that is a bug that was introduced in the latest version of the editor. I have it on the fix list for the next update.

Hi Paul, wfxDateTimePicker: Not responding to user input. Though it works properly programmatically. Using .TimeFormat.
This one is fixed now. When parameters of the control changed I had to recreate the entire control, however after doing so I forgot to set the visually displaying Date/Time.

I think that I have finally fixed this redrawing issue with ListBoxes and other Form controls when the ListBox item count is zero.
