[Ql-Users] Qbase version 1.0

Hi all, After nearly 20 years, here is version 1.00 of QBase. The (hopefully) full list of changes since the 1998 version is in the README file in the zip. Since v0.99, the only new feature is that the page size and scroll size of the tabular view are now CONFIGurable. Other than that, I have

Hi all, That's very good news about QMenu. Anyway, two people have sent me the correct parameters for FILE_SELECT, and I am coming to the conclusion that version 7.66 ignores the file extension and always shows all files in a directory. The same is not true of a version 5 that I also have. The

Hi, the problem is that these parameters are likely to vary from version to version, as they are offsets into the file... Your best bet is probably to adapt your program to the latest version. Wolfgang A question about QBase and QMenu. The menu extensions are used fairly extensively in

Hi all, A question about QBase and QMenu. The menu extensions are used fairly extensively in QBase. However, the program was originally written in 1998 with whatever version of QMenu was current then, and it doesn't seem to work properly with the later version (version 7.66) which is

Hi all, Here is the new version of QBase. Changes: - Loads in 512x256 resolution, and is resizable. - May be called with a command-line parameter, e.g. ex flp1_Qbase_obj;'flp1_data_dbs' - Lots of refactoring. The eagle-eyed among you may notice that it's a lot smaller than it was. Tested on

Hi Bob, Since Qbase is essentially untested, other than my own efforts, this is not really surprising. Would it be possible to send me a copy of the database? It would greatly help with debugging to have access to a database that makes the system crash. Rgds, Daniel On Sun, Sep 10, 2017 at
