    TwinBASIC Pure Win32 GUI Sample.



    Short demo of a windowed application written in TwinBASIC using pure Win32 code.

    It's a very simple clock that displays the current date and time as text in Window. It's serves as a demonstration of just how powerful the TwinBASIC compiler is, even in this early stage of it's development. Even though TwinBASIC has no GUI tools, it's compiler is still powerful enough to leverage the Win32 API very comfortably to create a GUI anyway.

    Short video briefly showing the application running:-

    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

    The threads I start are Niya and Olaf free zones. No arguing about the benefits of VB6 over .NET here please. Happiness must reign. - yereverluvinuncleber

    Often I tried something it failed because of this or that. This expample works without errors. I'm impressed. Thank you for sharing.

    You're welcomed.

    Working on a more advanced implementation that should prove to quite insightful to anyone wondering how a GUI is implemented in an environment like VB6 or .Net's WinForms.
