Focus Handle of Multiwin Output Window

Hi (again). The program I'm writing uses multiple output windows using the MULTIWIN library. The function FN_createwin returns the handle of the created window. I am using a mouse to access items on the output screen but I need to know that the output window is selected. All the 'window focus' routi...

Re: PRIVATE Arrays, etc.

Thanks. What you said makes sense - I just didn't read it that way. The code that I put here produces a Bad DIM Statement error - that is, when re-dimensioning the array with a different size. Dimensioning the array each time seems to have little further affect other than that of the original dimens...

PRIVATE Arrays, etc.

Hi. In the help it states: An entire array may be made PRIVATE, following which it is in an undimensioned state. Before the private array can be used within the function or procedure it must be re-dimensioned using a DIM statement. The new dimensions can be the same as or different from those of the...

Re: Entering Editbox Values Through the Program

Thanks RNBW. Never looked into LBB so analysing this is difficult and the BBCBasic version seems to use subs that are not listed. Having said that, I very much appreciate the information and the time you spent. I decided to look into a slightly different route, by using 'Boxes and Buttons' (WINLIB5(...

Entering Editbox Values Through the Program

Hi. I've written a 'DOS' based program through which values can be entered into a variable in, what looks like, an edit box (albeit, a character coded box). I now wish to produce a more Windows looking version with dialog boxes, etc. Some of the values entered have to be in a numeric format, for whi...

Re: Cross Reference

Thanks for this. Having checked the registry I noticed that, in the HKCU\Software\R T Russell\BBC BASIC for Windows\Utilities key are stored all the utilities and their locations. Checking these, I noticed that they were all through invalid paths. (Not sure why or how it happened.) The only one that...

Re: Cross Reference

Thanks for the reply. I tried again around ten minutes ago and found that Cross Reference now works. However, none of the others do. (Although some may possibly not depending on the circumstances.)

Cross Reference

Hi. I'm trying to use the Cross Reference utility, but it doesn't seem to work. I click on it and it does nothing that I can see. There appears to be no report generated. There doesn't seem to be anything about file location in the usual help areas. I have used it before, but I can't seem to get it ...

* vs OSCLI

Hi. The 'star' commands can be implemented using the OSCLI command, e.g. *FONT Arial,16 [=] OSCLI "Arial,16" OSCLI also has the ability to use variables in the call, so can be adapted during runtime, e.g. font$ = "Arial,16" OSCLI font$ However, my question is, are there any other advantages of one o...
