Thank you for your honest comments about EZGUI Donnie,
I fully understand.I am curious, what kind of applications do you usually write ?
Also could you elborate on what confused you when using EZGUI ?
Maybe it would be helpful if you noted what programming languages you are used to (ie. VB) ?
While EZGUI may not fullfill your current needs, it would be worthwhile to continue to experiment with it.
Not as to using EZGUI, there are a number of things which may confuse some at first.
One is the Events.
Event converts common API notification messages into consistant events and forwards the events to the proper subroutine for each control.
Events are pretty straightforward, IMO and don't take long to grasp.
Second the Smart Parser.
Unlike other Designers which allow you to edit code within the designer EZGUI lets' you use an external code editor of choice.
Because the code editor is external, there has to be some way to protect certain blocks of code from being edited because the designer needs to maintain that code itself.
The Smart parser does this simply, but it may be a little confusing at first.
Here are some posts from my forums (the old forums) which discuss the Smart Parser.
Maybe something in them will "click" and make sense to you. I hope they are helpful.
Other users have asked questions about the Smart parser and maybe these posts will offer some answers for you.http://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001364.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001512.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001531.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001774.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum11/HTML/000028.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum11/HTML/000030.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum29/HTML/000005.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum29/HTML/000024.htmlhttp://chrisboss.hypermart.net/ubb/Forum29/HTML/000036.html
