[SOLVED] Ecere on 64 bit Linux Mint 14.1 Mate

Yep, I used your sudo apt-get above and got my dependency ducks in a row. I stood no chance without that. I got a clean compile of Ecere on 64 bit Linux Mint 14.1 Mate on an AMD64. So not only are you cross platform, you are cross processor. The Ecere SDK came from the GitHub source. Compile time ab...

Ecere on Linux Mint 14

I am having some trouble understanding Ecere running on 64 bit hardware with 64 bit Linuxes. For instance, on a 64 bit machine running 32 bit Linux Mint 14 Mate, I can get the Ecere SDK from the Mint repo and it compiles and runs perfectly. The TTF fonts were already included. With the same machine ...

Re: Ecere under Slacko 5.5 Puppy Linux

[EDIT] Confirmed, the culprit is the JWM window manager. Switching to Openbox fixed it. Yes, I believe you are correct about the windows manager being the source of this problem. In this case it is Joe's Window Manager JWM. I've had other quirks with it and usually switch to Openbox if available. I ...

[SOLVED] Re: Troubles with Clock sample

Well as it turns out, I had an old Unix shell suite I had loaded several years ago on the windows side. Long forgotten once I installed Cygwin, it was hanging out hidden at the far end of my path. So now Ecere runs everything cross platform, just as advertised. Your Ecere Global settings above are c...

Troubles with Clock sample

Gentlemen, I have recently rediscovered this old problem on a new Win XP machine. When trying to compile the clock project I get: Couldn't open obj/debug.win32\clock.sym And missing sym files with every other app as well. I've tried all the suggested fixes in this thread. MS SDK, environment path se...

Re: Dropbox Sort

Ok, I used your code in the 1st example. Should have paid more attention to the dropbox being initialized in the Form() constructor. However, the initial dropdown list is not sorted after the AddString() calls UNTIL the button is clicked to add the newest element. Tested on both Linux and Win XP. Th...

Re: Dropbox Sort

Jerome,
Merci for your suggested code.
As you stated, dropBox1.Sort(null, 1) worked.
I found that I did need this sorting step because when I AddString()ed the out of order strings into the drop box, they were not automatically sorted.
Thx.
