Hi Daniel,

Executing a DBS file with Fileinfo2 is really easy to do.

I supplied QBASE on the Q60 software distribution, but QBASE v0.9 did not allow passing of the database filename in the command string.

IF you can make QBASE open the database file from a command string, this Which would allow Fileinfo2 to be configured to execute QBASE and open the database file.

Fileinfo2 allows a selection of options and in my opinion is one of the best QL extensions available.

I find the execution of data file more efficient.

For example, I setup Fileinfo2 to execute a ZIP archive file, giving me the option of unzip the archive to the default data directory or launch ACP (Archivers Control Panel).

a filename as a command-line parameter.

If I understand correctly, this should also mean that you will be able to
"execute" a DBS file using QPAC2 and Fileinfo and open it with QBase.

Hi all,

Latest pictures.

Qbase is now rescalable. It starts at 512x256:


and can get as big as you want:


These pictures show the automatic proportional column width in the
view, which has actually always worked, but was less than obvious until

Getting there...

you can use the system palette :-D

Indeed, thanks to the work of the operating system people (Marcel and
Wolfgang), the System Palette makes it easy for programs to follow a
generic colour scheme for programs, a little bit like Windows themes

There's an article about using it from SBASIC on my website at
http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/smsqegd2/index.html - just scroll down
the System Palette section.
