IDE / Designer based on IUP
« on: April 09, 2017, 10:09:27 AM »
Hi Guys,

As you know I released a Windows 32 bit version of Script BASIC  and featured Dave Zimmer's VB6 based GUI front end to the Script BASIC debugger preprocessor. It also uses Scintilla editor with a custom lexer. It has a lot of cool features but I don't want to invest any more time in that direction that paints me in a corner. IUP has all the controls needed to do the same and more and cross platform. IUP also has a nice dialog editor you can change properties  and see the changes in a live example immediately.

The reason for the post here on O2 is that this is something both projects could benefit from using their own BASIC as the host language. Charles, Roland and James have all posted examples here of IUP and LED and how it reduces the design time effort needed.

Your thoughts?

Aurel,

I think you may be wrong. Antonio (IUP author) is annal about keeping his external libraries current.

I download SBwin32 and i was almost shocked.
iUpScintilla.dll is --------------------------3.5MB large  :o
when SciLexer-dll version 3.3.9.0 is  455kB
scivb2.ocx component  ---------------- 413kB

sorry but that is too big
also scilexer used in oxgen pack 2.2.0.0 is also heavy 1,5MB
instead of mine 340kB

Glad to hear you finally got Script BASIC running on your system and the way it sounds, you might even like it.  :)

My libiup_scintilla.so has over 3,000 exported functions.

Every project, especially a modular one, seems to be in need of a reasonable expansion limit to remain usable and maintainable. Enthropy grows exponentially, you know.

Script BASIC / IUP is a drop in a bucket to the excessive resource requirements of VB.NET.
