if it had autoindent it would be quite good....  And a easy way to insert asm functions without having to get the machine code and process the whole mess yourself.  

A few q's:
1. Does it shell the qb compiler?
2. What language?  Xbasic, C++?

:roll:

Obviously if it's a QB editor, it shells QB, and unless it's got some kind of terrificly-ingenious obj-link function or code-to-call-absolute-string function, I do believe the assembly option is out too. And it's obviously for QB, not Xbasic or C++. What it's written in is irrelevant (probably VB, but I don't have any import table viewers on this computer to confirm that), but it obviously runs in Windows and shells to BC and LINK. You don't even have to download it to know these things, they're common fricken sense. :evil:

Nice look though, but perhaps you should focus more on function rather than flash, toad? And a suggestion...if you want to take a quick n dirty way to doing syntax coloring, check out the CodeMax control. I've used it in a number of editor products (an HTML editor, both compiler projects, a script editor for WOS, and other such editors) so I can attest to its abilities and power. Cheesy

That's nice, got potential. But it needs to be a bit smarter. Try viewing this code to see what i mean. Btw, Courier New is the standard font for coding, and it's not in the font list.

Some time ago, I discorvered the use of the /Z switch for link.exe, and made a lil proggie in vb around it:

http://qbtk.com/div/qbedit.rar

(for some reason the color coding doesn't work properly when compiled, so if you can try it in vb6)

For those who don't know it, the /Z switch presents errors in a nicely formatted way, so try entering some lines of faulty code in my program, and hit F7 to link, and get the errors. It's sorta like the C/++ IDEs. Also you can click on the error to jump to the line where it occoured.

I think by using this switch the argument that qb error handling can't be done in windows editors got less strong...

I dont really care for the IDE. I would prefer notepad for writing my qb programs and command line to compile them. But I would like someone to make a QB compiler for windows(*hint**cough*Ado*hint**cough*)

Umm...which version of qb are you using (1.1/4.5/7.1)? If you try opening a file saved in qb7.1's format wont open in qb4.5. They are incompatible.

Try opening the file in it's native qb version and then save it in text format. You will be then able to open it the other version of qb.

@adosorken: when can we see something working? :bounce:

Umm...I think he meant he can't open such files with the Windows editor...

Well, he should've mentioned that! :Huh: Files saved in QB format are stored as binary files. So windows editors such as notepad cant display them correctly.

Unless you save them with the "readable file-option" or something like that
