DatedTics function

I needed an utility to provide a file or filename with a date-time stamp with second-precision. Of course you can use hours, minutes and seconds, but a decimal comparison with the current date then requires conversion. That is why I have chosen the number of seconds that have elapsed during the day....

Re: iConvert 3.6

I wasn't aware you had changed the version number of Update Currencies. I will fix that reference in my code. I also discovered that iConvert 3.6 was not saving its correct name in the "convertname" file. Henceforth it will, so you can read that file to be sure that Update Currencies 2.2 loads the ...

Re: iConvert 3.6

…snip There is perhaps a more certain way to keep everything compatible. Have you considered us merging the programs? I have actually created such an animal for my own use, although I would not post it without your approval. I can send it to you by private message if you want to take a look. Good p...

Re: iConvert 3.6

I extended the program with processing the 'viewstate'. "iConvert" however does not work properly with this: • I renamed the program to "Update Cirrencies 2.2.sb" but iConvert uses version 2.1 Therefore version number temporarily changed to 2.1, but still: • the 'gear' symbol disappears so that view...

Re: iConvert 3.6

In order to be able to use "viewstate" useful, the update program has to know whether the converter is active, otherwise the view is overruled at all times by viewstate, also in modes 1 and 4 that are needed during development. I therefore propose that "viewstate" be extended with a second value tha...

Re: iConvert 3.5

Simple solution for the inverted values :!: For updating currencies, in this version, as before, the file "currencies.data" is also deleted. As a result, "Update Currencies.sb" will start in "interactive mode" during which the user can decide not to continue. A new data file is then not generated an...

FindFile function

I needed a function that can find a file in a folder. I made FindFile$(Dir$, Search$, Ext$, Upsort) • Searches file in folder 'Dir$' which name contains 'Search$' and ends with 'Ext$'. • Search is case-insensitive • It returns the latest matching name from the sorted folder listing • Upsort = 1 resu...

Re: iConvert 3.4

OK, I accept all your proposals. I used the portrait mode because then more of the currencies website is visible. However, everything remains visible with scrolling.
I will make the changes this weekend.
