    Re: TwinBasic programming IDE - download and install

    The latest twinBASIC IDE BETA is now available.

    Download from here... https://github.com/WaynePhillipsEA/twinbasic/releases
    • Click on "Assets" for the latest release
    • Download and Extract the ZIP file into a local folder
    • Then run the twinBASIC.exe from that local folder.


    If you're NOT using Windows 11, you might need to download and install the WebView2 Runtime (32-bit). When you run the IDE it will show a message if the WebView2 Runtime isn't installed.
    Download it here: https://tinyurl.com/twinbasicwebview2runtime
    (in case of difficulty download from here https://developer.microsoft.com/en-u...wnload-section - you want "Evergreen Standalone Installer" > "x86")
    Some products, like Office 365, now pre-install WebView2 for you, so you might not need this step.

    When you build the exe add the option to build to use a custom name.
    -The builds run 50% slow that vb6

    I didn't want to whisk it.

    Had no idea TwinBasic was progressing so quick. Looking great!

Then I would have never believed in myself enough to know that I could learn other languages besides BASIC. I grew up in BASIC, started when I was like 8 to 10 years old and before I ever wrote my first piece of C code, I was incapable of conceiving that I had the smarts to learn anything else. Non-BASIC languages scared me for the longest time until I wrote C code for the first time. Today I've familiarized myself with many languages including C, C++, C#, Python, Assembly, JavaScript, HTML, CSS etc. I'm far from being an expert in any of these but I'm no longer afraid of them and it all started with my first adventure into C.

    Anyways, this feature is long overdue. The ability to create standard DLLs is something Visual Basic should have had a long time ago. It's a very good thing TwinBASIC has it because even in 2022 we still mostly have to rely on C to do this. It is nice to have another language that could do it.
    VB6 can absolutely make standard DLLs. It's a hack, but it's an old hack... earliest descriptions of how to modify the compilation instructions and addins to help go back to at least 2001 with vbAdvance. These days you even have The trick's method for creating multithreaded standard DLLs (here).

    Re: TwinBasic

    twinBASIC status update

    Highlights include container support, IDE bug fixes, and a modest request for a complete backward-compatible rewrite of MS Access in twinBASIC.

    I was 100% aware of this even back then. Thing is though, scared as I might have been of C/C++, I felt it was just easier and far better to learn C than to learn these VB6 hacks that many times had a lot of limiting conditions. I have never ever had a favorable disposition towards hacking something to get it to do something it's not meant to do and I have this attitude with everything, not just with programming. The only time I'd ever choose that option is if there is no other option. It was the same with multi-threading. Even though I was not aware at the time that it was possible to write working multi-threaded code in VB6, I still would not have chosen to do that because there was another option, move to .Net which had exactly what I wanted no complicated hacks required. In fact the lack of an easy way to do multi-threading in VB6 was the final straw for me. It was the thing that moved me to finally abandon it.

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    Only last week playing around in tb I noticed that that the Frame Control could not host a group of option buttons and now this week it can!
