Welcome from the UK

Post by lagi »

Hi All,

My Name is Lagi, Eraklis (or Hercules) doesn't go down too mwell in the playground ;-)

A long time Xbase user (never Dbase -as it was not really good enough in my opinion ...)


I I started with 6800 Assembly language, ( a LoOOO..ng time ago) and started writing business software on an Apple 2 with UCSD Pascal , then moved to the PC with Turbo Pascal - Clipper Autumn 86 -> Clipper 5 FoxDos, Foxpro ..... Visual Foxpro 9 ( with a Bit of C, Delphi, C++ Builder VB in between as projects dictated).

Lately I've been doing everything in Livecode (mobile and desktop). (Servoy, Lianja and Alpha 5 have their own problems.

But you can't beat VFP for desktop database stuff (connected to Oracle for greater than 2G tables), so finding Xsharp got me drooling.

I have spent a few hours trying to get a simple "hello world" form with a button and an edit field to run and have hit a roadblock - I will post my question in the forum separately.

I will be watching and following with bated breath

Haha, I understand you too well! I once attempted to use my real name (Christos/Χρήστος - sort of spelled "Hreestos" in English) in the forums, conferences etc, but it did not work well at all, so I have also gone the route of the quick and easy "Chris"! Occasionally I do get the comment "'Chris' does not sound very Greek!" :)

Welcome here!

And yet Christopher (Christophoros) is a Greek name meaning bearer of Christ - go figure?

Lagi

p.s. while I'm at it can I ask a question?

I ran the example form program and added an extra button (doing a copy ) and then renaming bioth to btnDoit and btnExit - and I renamed the click methods but when I double click the methods okbutton1click get added back and I cant
seem to get the buttons to reference the new click names - I cant find seem to find a way to "cleanup" the code

You need to go the Properties window (after selecting the control), select the "Events" page, then double click on the first one ("Click") on the right. It will be editable now, just rename it to use the new name you used.

So that's why the Greeks gave us the word pragmatikos.
