Re: INPUT# and line feeds

Hmm, well i thought it was working, but returning to the program today, the accented characters aren't appearing correctly again. The code i'm using to create the mode is this: VDU 23,22,1920;1080;8,18,16,8 So with 8 as the final digit this should be selecting UTF-8, but accented characters all appe...

Re: INPUT# and line feeds

As I said, it is far better to work with UTF-8 so I would advise switching back and changing your program to work with UTF-8 too. There should be little overhead in doing that, especially with the availability of the UTF8LIB library. Good point, and until just now (having referred to the manual), i...

How are they encoded in your data file (if the file was exported from Notepad there's an option in the File Save dialogue)?
They were created using Visual Studio Code, which seems to default to UTF-8. i've just changed it to ANSI and all is now fine :D

Thanks a second time!

Re: INPUT# and line feeds

In both BB4W and BBCSDL there's a link in the Help menu, indeed the Help menu contains links to all the main sources of information (the main manual, the beginners' tutorial, the wiki, the website, the discussion group and this forum - even one to email me!). So if you make the Help menu the 'go to...

INPUT# and line feeds

Hi, probably a very basic question but i can't find a simple reference/solution in the Help files. i'm using a plain text file as a data source for a program, with each piece of data on a new line. My problem is that each time INPUT# grabs something the first character of the string is a line feed (...

Re: BB4W themes?

What you may not realize is that BB4W has been out of development for several years and the design is frozen… No, i didn't realise that; i assumed that it was still being 'actively' managed by Richard Russell. That's a real shame; i've been tempted numerous times to abandon BB4W and switch to somet...

Re: Help pages sprawling over two monitors!

i'm guessing that this monitor configuration simply wasn't considered when BB4W was designed, which is a shame. It's only a small thing, of course, hardly a major issue, but BB4W is the only program i have that does this!

I think your best option…
Hmm, well i wouldn't exactly call that suggestion anything close to a 'solution' - but i admire your creativity in finding a way around the lack of built-in themes!

BB4W themes?

i'm sure this issue must have been discussed at some point – though a search on the current and previous fora hasn't yielded anything on it – but has there been any suggestion of offering different themes for BB4W? i know we can change the fonts and syntax colours, but i've never entirely made my pe...
