New Basic

Hi.

I've been away from this site for ages, but last time I was looking through posts there was much talk about New Basic, but all seems quiet here now.

Did New Basic ever come to anything?

Would love to know.

Any updates much appreciated :-)

Thanks in advance,
Paul :D

Re: Program Shell- Graphics

Thanks rbytes! This is just the type of code listing that really helps newbies like me! Seeing a working example with well commented code is just so helpful. I can't wait to play with this when I get time next week. It's school half term here I the UK so no time for coding this week unfortunately. T...

Re: field examples

Wow! Thanks AGAIN rbytes - and such a speedy response! That is EXACTLY what I needed. Do you know if there are any documents with simple examples Iike these for beginners like me?

field examples

Hi, I've been studying the field commands and example in the manual (5.8) but am getting a bit confused. The example runs on my iPhone, but its overly complicated for my needs. I just need to input some text into a box, and capture the data in a string. Can anyone point me to a simple example anywhe...

Re: Radiation Dose Map - problem!

Thanks rbytes, That sounds like a good explanation. I'll have a look to see if that will fix things. I did consider the read pixel option, but given that the data is already quantized during the colourisation process, I would be loosing too much information going that route. Good to have options tho...

Radiation Dose Map - problem!

Hi everyone. I have been playing around with SB to try and get used to some of its features, and have been having fun in the process, which I guess is the main objective! I have written some messy code which I am having some problems with. I'll try and explain! Basically, the code randomly picks a l...

Re: The End of Smart Basic?

This is sad news indeed. I used to muck about programming early computers when i was much younger (ZX Spectrum, Atari ST etc...), always in BASIC languages such as GFA Basic, STOS (a games programming BASIC) and then OPL on Psion organisers etc... I always loved tinkering about in these programming ...

When does an IF statement need an ENDIF

Hi,

Could someone please advise why some IF statements seem to need END IF and sometimes I get an error saying "END IF without IF"?

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul

PS: apologies for what must seem like very obvious questions to most!!
