Re: Copy files between BASIC v6 and other apps

Thanks - I realise that v5.8 is a different application to v6.0.

I'm trying to share my v5.8 programs with the new v6.0 which I've downloaded.

Re: Copy files between BASIC and other apps

Thanks for posting the video. I see the icons at the bottom of the first screen shown in the video include a 'share' option. My smart BASIC 5.8 does not have this option. I have 'delete' 'paste' 'cut' 'copy' 'rename' 'new folder' and a cloud icon which toggles between 'dropbox' and 'local'. Please c...

Partial Image conundrum

I'm writing a program to manipulate jpg images, but have got stuck at an early proof of concept stage. I read all the RGB values of the 399 x 600 jpg into a 3-dimensional array (400,601,3), clear the screen then draw each pixel back from the array. But I only get one quarter of the image. Here's the...

Case Statement

Is there a CASE statement or equivalent in smartBasic?

I'm looking to convert a Day number into it's text equivalent, something like:

SELECT CASE dayno
CASE 1
day$ = "Monday"
CASE 2
day$ = "Tuesday"
etc.

Re: File/Folder Structure

Thanks rbytes. I had mistakenly created my own SB Folder in DB. I now see, thanks to your further advice, that there is already an SB folder within the Apps folder within DB. I can now see my file from within SB - hooray! So the final stage is how to access that file from SB code. I tried DRAW IMAGE...

Re: File/Folder Structure

... restarted DB and Cloud icon appears bottom right. Touch this and top strip changes to say "DropBox", but no file names appear. I have lots on DB, including the new folder Smart Basic which contains my image, but it's not visible in the SB DropBox window.
