  1. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    Okay, while I didn't really manage to fix the speed issue I did fix a few other bugs. Final version (for now): https://github.com/PeterSwinkels/GWBlocks.
  2. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    Okay, I changed the code so the most frequently occurring jumps are now forward jumps and got rid of a few rep.

    https://github.com/PeterSwinkels/GWBlocks/blob/main/GWBLOCKS.BAS

    There appears to...
  3. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    Yes, I always run the game from the Qb45 IDE.

    Aha, I see so the way the Qb45 IDE interprets code is more efficient, that explains a lot.

    So I need to move frequently used procedures to the...
  4. VS 2010 Re: Vb.net reportviewer : print a series of bulletin in the same report

    Hi guyak89,

    Welcome to the forum. Could you post the relevant code and files so others can look at it?

  5. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    Okay, I can find Bascom 2.20 from 1986... which does not even support low resolution EGA... :mad: - Does anyone know whether there was a more recent version that did support EGA? Yes, I could...

    Re: VB6 Make Activex OCX For vb.net

    Hello xiaoyao,

    If I understand you correctly:

    1. You're trying to load an *.ocx file into vb.net which depends on two *.dll files.
    2. But you don't want those two *.dlls to be loaded as well?...

    Re: VB6 Document Management - Takeover

    Hello Willie McClure,

    1. Okay, you're looking for someone to take over a document management system with only a few remaining clients, and this system was made in vb6? If correct, then what is...
  8. Re: ListView Group View + Small Icons = Disappearing items

    Hi fafalone,

    It is unclear from your post what kind of project you're working on. Could you summarize what you're trying to do and post some more code?

    yours,

    Hi fafalone,

    Questions:
    1. What code?
    2. Switch what views?
    3. Could you post the relevant coce?

    yours,

  10. Re: WebBrowser Control | Mutliple iFrame Embedded YTPLAYER Vids | Only 1st Vid Functi

    Hi,

    1. Could you post the relevant code?
    2. What is ytplayer?
    3. What settings exactly are you hoping to find?
    4. What exactly is INTERNET_FEATURE_CONTROLS?

    If you can answer these...
  11. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    1. Yes, Passel is probably right.
    2. Indeed, unwarrented assumptions can make you overlook something obvious.
    3. Apparently one official GWBasic compiler has been released by Microsoft during the...
  12. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    Passel,

    Thank you for your answer. I haven't tried compiling my program with Quick Basic although I suspect it would run even faster as an *.exe file. I am going to try compiling the code with the...
  13. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    I put a request on the DOSBox forums asking for people who own 80's/90's hardware to test my code. I am curious what the result will be.
  14. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    1. No, I haven't.
    2. Yes, it is possible that my expectation are unrealistic for GWBasic on an actual 80486 DX 66 MHz. If they are however, then I have trouble understanding how much requiring any...
  15. [RESOLVED] GWBasic code optimization question->

    Okay, feeling like playing with really old BASIC dialects I converted a program I wrote in Quick Basic 4.5 to GWBasic 2.23. In DOSBox it runs at an acceptable speed in Quick Basic, in GWBasic however...
  16. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    @niya: me or Porter?
  17. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    My, I didn't expect anyone to reply. :-) VB6 wasn't available. And yes, it could have been done with one of those scripting languages too. Vb.net just felt the easiest for me personally at that...
  18. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    A quick something I wanted to share about vb.net vs other languages:

    The few times I need to get something done at work using a script, I can choose from VBA/VBScript/Batch/possibly Javascript or...

    Re: above 50 years old and still programming

    Hmmm, if I ever still do write computer programs it's only when I'm bored. Last thing I remember doing was trying to downgrade a Tetris clone I wrote in Qbasic to work in GwBasic and I found myself...
  20. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I have noticed that when it's personal people, especially older people are more stuck in the past and resistant to change. Yes, having to learn something new and being confronted with how hard it is...
  21. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Those are good points. Now what would cause people to refuse to evolve? Fear of letting go of the familiar?
  22. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    @niya:
    I am for the most part all for progress, but it is a good thing there people who won't blindly follow every new trend I guess. I think whether or not a discussion turns into a disaster as...

    @niya:
    Yes, I have worked with the CreateWindow API. Sounds like unless you need low level control or want to learn how it works RAD is the most practical. Given how more modern generally seems to...

    @niya: RAD?
  26. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    About that fun bit: I have noticed programming in a language that is tedious can be fun challenge, until you have to do it for a course or work. It can quickly begin to feel like a burden. Anyone...
  27. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    It doesn't just depend on the country (The Netherlands in my case), it also depends on the organization involved. One place where I worked could afford to buy tons of new hardware some of which never...
  28. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    @niya:
    Yeah, it does sound like baka is responsible for older systems. I have seen it before, crummy outdated pcs because new ones could not be afforded or at the very least not invested in.

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    @wes4dbt: okay, actually 3.11 ran fine on my 80386 SX 25mhz with 4mb of ram. It was 9x that required a Pentium or at least a decent 486 to run decently.

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    @wes4dbt: the first two versions of Windows were useless novelties and Windows 3.0 was buggy and unstable. Win 3.1x was decent for its time.

    .NET exes are typically small.
    .NET exes can work without a setup.

    @szlamany - I think it's impressive anyone can write code like that... It must take a lot skill and knowledge to pull off.

    Now that you mention it I have heard about Peter Norton. I don't think assembly is hard to understand because it is advanced, but rather because it is so abstract relative to higher level...

    @niya:
    While impractical, especially by today's standards the functionality in old BASIC's could be extended by inserting bits of machine code or calling interrupts in Quick Basic. And API calls...

    True enough, I usually copy-paste procedures I wrote earlier specifically for those tasks and variable initialization is a godsend.
