New visual form editor for Desktop

Discuss PocketC for Palm OS (including Desktop Edition)

Postby iebnn on Sat Feb 10, 2001 7:34 pm

Since no one has made a program that runs on the computer (not the palm) for creating forms for PocketC, I think I'll program one myself.
Since I'm not going to program the palm controls, what pocketc app should I use for creating the controls? Ccontrols? Say I used Ccontrols: my program would generate PocketC code using the Ccontrols library for the form you created on the computer.

You can already to do this.

Here's how:

1) Create your forms on the POSE emulator using Ccontrols or the like.

2) Export the MemoDB.pdb file to an empty directory.

3) Use par ( to rip the records of MemoDB.pdb into seperate files. (e.g. from the dos command line: par x MemoDB.pdb). The names of each record file will be strange, but their contents will be what you want. (If someone got fancy they could write a python/perl/c program to parse the files for thier titles and rename them appropriately.)

If you need to re-edit your form, just make sure that you save and then export it's unique CEdt_ database to your desktop. Then just re-install it again to the emulator when you need to edit it again.

Also, when running OS3.5 roms the emulator doesn't handle the refreshing of certain text input windows cleanly, leaving you with a half blank screen sometimes. If you use a OS3.3 rom you'll be ok.
