    Re: New release of the twinBASIC programming IDE

    need add .net activex control project ,Compiled DLL controlFor twinbasic, the principle of implementation is.

    Code:
    private withevents extctl as vbcontrolextender
    
    private sub form_load()
    licenses.add "prjweeks.weeksctl", "xydsfasfjewfe"
    set extctl = form1.controls.add("prjweeks.weeksctl", "ctl1")

    Re: New release of the twinBASIC programming IDE

    tB supports the standard .NET COM Interop VB6 does. It doesn't need to be made into VB.NET 20.0 or whatever version they're on.

    • fixed: C static library support was broken, causing a crash in BETA 424. Demo SQLITE3 project available in discord


    BETA 424

    • WARNING: (temporary issue) there are currently some sync issues with regards to the IDE and internal debugger state
    • WARNING: (temporary issue) Edit-And-Continue support has been disabled in this build
    • WARNING: (temporary issue) ADDINS are disabled in this build
    • WARNING: (temporary issue) memory usage will likely be HIGHER in this build than previous builds
    • WARNING: (temporary issue) custom controls forms support currently disabled in this build
    • changed: significant refactor of parsing stages. regressions likely in this build
    • removed: limits on "procedure too large" during codegen
    • fixed: edge case of VBA.Val implementation could cause a runtime crash
    • improved: all Global/App/Clipboard/Forms/Screen global object members are now independently linked-in as necessary, through the use of RedirectToStaticImplementation attribute
    • all sorts of codegen improvements and bug fixes (typical 20-30% code size reduction)
    • improved: some improvements to general stability
    • fixed: hitting the Stop debugger button whilst debugging at an explicit 'Stop' statement on x64 would crash-restart the compiler
    • added: experimental support for local variable type inference using temporary 'As Any' syntax (e.g. Dim something As Any = 5& gives a typed variable of type Long)
    • improved: If() operator function now works directly on all basic types, without coercing the values to Variants, provided both outcomes have matching types (e.g. If(cond,ALong,ALong) does not go through Variant, but If(cond,ALong,AInteger) does)
    • improved: some improvements to general Debugger stability
    • fixed: Debugger object reference leak while stepping through code in some instances
    • improved: completely reworked class field get/let/set auto implementations for better performance and smaller codesize
    • improved: IDE monaco editor now better handles hex/octal/binary literals, e.g. selecting the full &H12345678 text rather than just H12345678 when double clicking on it
    • improved: hover on LOCAL/WATCH panels, now show expanded view of the underlying variable, with clipboard copy ability
    • improved: the left/right/bottom dock panels can now be hidden individually (Window menu > Toggle {X} Dock Panel)
    • improved: resizable bars in the IDE now have a short delay before showing blue, giving a less jarring experiencing when moving the mouse over these areas
    • improved: IDE complete makeover, including more flexible dockable panels support
    • added: support for using C static libraries (LIB/OBJ files) from within twinBASIC, using the new Import Library syntax, see SQLITE3 Static Library sample
    • improved: internal optimizations of standard library functions such as memcpy, memcmp
    • improved: dragging the yellow execution arrow during a debug session now allows for the mouse pointer to move outside of the document area keeping the drag ability
    • improved: every IDE action is now available to be linked to a customizable keyboard shortcut (~300 commands currently)
    • improved: FORMAT IDE menu items are all now implemented, along with most other menu items
    • added: experimental feature for showing different coloured resize/movement grabbers for multi-selected controls in form designer
    • improved: mouse capture is now set correctly in the form designer when dragging resize/movement grabbers
    • improved: standardized the scrollbars and scrolling behaviour across all panels and monaco editors
    • improved: standardized the context menus and root menu behaviours across all panels and monaco editors
    • fixed: codegen issues involving overloaded constructors combined with field initializers
    • fixed: IDE editor clipboard-paste would fail to ensure the new cursor position was visible (in view)
    • improved: new inline runtime-error monaco widget that allows for 'Try Again', 'Ignore', 'Stop', and 'Search Online' buttons
    • improved: better handling of new-line text indentation and auto-block-completion by performing a single edit after hitting ENTER rather than two edits
    • improved: project Settings is now a modal dialog rather than a tabbed document, ensuring that Save/Cancel is actioned
    • improved: there is now a grayscale effect over the IDE window when the IDE loses the input focus to help identify IDE focus issues
