QuoteThe code Phoenix generated is for a DLL, therefore, even if the code genrated was correct, itwill not work in a SLL. A SLL cannot have a LIBMAIN function.What I normally do is, 1. Generate the code as a DLL.2. Convert it by hand to an SLL.For example, a control in SLL form needs an initialization and cleanup functions since there is no LIBMAIN.Regards,Dominic.
QuoteActually all optiions in Phoenix with the exception of SLL have been implemented. It is just that all possible scenarios have not been tested. A GUI as an SLL is something I have not done tests on. PowerBASIC is a bad example to give as something that is bullet proof. The implementation of COM in PowerBASIC is buggy as hell and light years from being completed. Regards,Dominic.
QuoteJust waiting for my next "Visual Job" and maybe your Version 2, as said in Mails before, the Actual Version - while beeing really amazing in its features - is not yet really reliable. My Test Project I have to compile outside of Phoenix because inside i get strange errors (something in the .rc-file is not as it should be).Sometimes it just dies without any error-message after loading a project. Sometimes the form dissappears and I have to reload the project
QuoteI did not feel like putting this up in the forums as I feel that it would reflect phoenix in a bad way.I have been in touch with Dominic but the repairs have been extremely slow. I have requested him to give me a license to version 2 so that I can do create something that is usable. There are too many bugs in the editor. Try working on a Menu and you will see how slow it gets. If you introduce the Docking container then the designer will misbehave after adding a few more controls.A rebar control containing toolbar does work but after that your menu is not accessible by mouse.Create an imagelist and try to assign it to menu then it will not be accessible by the toolbar.IDE allows combining icons and bitmaps in the imagelist but when compiling it just messes up things. Once you create a large form, you cannot touch the IDE for any programming. It just bombs every time you try to edit the code. I have to use Ultraedit to change the code and again after sometime it becomes too much to work upon. I am using the latest update. I am running it on a i7 - Quad core machine. I am attaching the project files for you to check it out at your end... Just try to add an entry in the menu and you can see the issue. Similarly, when you compile and execute the program you can see that the menu is not accessible.
QuoteFor phoenix, i think it's simply a matter of not really being interested to make money from it, it may be lack motivation this way?
