If you hate QB GUIs look away.

If you have used Fun500 GUI 3.0 I was wondering what you think it needs.

Uh, right, but what's a "QB GUI"?

And where would one find Fun500 GUI 3.0

A QB GUI is a GUI made in QB. A GUI is a Graphical User Interface. Fun500 GUI 3.0 is my GUI(actually made in FB) and can be found at http://fun500.brandoncornell.com

Well, I went to that site, but couldn't see exactly what to download to get a "GUI". I'm still not sure what one is. Windows is a graphical user interface. Who needs a different one. I remember old days of non-mouse scroll-mode DOS without windows. People would write programs so you didn't have to give commands like CD, DIR, etc. Is anyone today still wasting time on such stuff? We already have Windows which does that.

But anyway, I wanted to try it out and am looking for QBGUI.BAS or some similar program I can download and try with QBasic (as this is a QBasic forum) and see how it works. I would certainly not be interested in an EXE (nor would anyone else in their right mind).

So is there a link to QBGUI.BAS at your site that I overlooked?

Thanks,

Mac

Hi, Mac:
Fun500 was certainly made in QB4.5, so it will not work in QBasic.

The last known QB-GUI demo that worked in QBasic was Windoze, done ten years ago:
http://www.qbasicnews.com/abc/showsnipp ... nippet=430

It's a Postit zipped file. To run it cut and paste the code to notepad , save as zipped.bas, run it in QB, and will make you a zip file where you will find windoze.bas.

Thanks, Antoni.

FYI, whenever I say QBasic, I include QuickBasic. I consider them the same thing, although I know all the long history. I will run programs in QB4.5 if necessary, although I prefer QB1.0.

So if the program is QB4.5 or even 7, fine. That is QBasic to me.

Sorry for my bad vocabulary. I really hate to type QBasic/QuickBasic. I just use QB to mean either or both.

Just use QB for QuickBasic and QBasic for...well, QBasic. Anyone worth their salt knows the difference between the interpreter and the compiler. Making QBasic equal to QuickBasic is almost insulting...QBasic is a toy next to it.

Well

Yep. Is anyone wasting there time on DOS Games?
We already have Windows which does that.
Some people don't like Windows :P

Its actually made in FB and my code itsn't very clean because Its not intended for other people to see.

Windoze don't compile! QB Object Rebuild is for QB4.5 and not bad but a little buggy and big.

Would anyone use a GUI Lib, and if so, in QB or FB? and if in QB should I use QB future?
