Re: What Was The First Language You Learned?

My first was some obscure version of Basic in college that ran on a mini computer. Since then I've written using dozens of 3GL and 4GL languages and a bunch of scripting languages. I'm no longer proficient in most of these tools/languages but I suppose I could pick some of them back up in a pinch. A...

PCMag: Still Using Windows 7? Microsoft's Next Update Is Critical

Support for Windows 7 ends in less than a year (Jan 14, 2020). A lot of people, myself included, still use it. I found this on my news feed.

Re: Get ListView focus question

Late to the game. You've probably already figured it out...

I tried it a bunch of times on Windows 7. It works correctly every time. It may be an OS version thing. Hint: Don't "expect" that the result will be 2 when two rows are selected. Actually check to see which row has focus. Good luck!

Re: Raw TRUE/FALSE test on an object Topic is solved

Thanks guys! I guess I didn't look hard enough.

From the doc:
Objects are always considered true when a boolean value is required, such as in if obj, !obj or obj ? x : y.

Raw TRUE/FALSE test on an object Topic is solved

I discovered something unexpected. If you do a raw TRUE/FALSE test on an object or variable that contains an object, the test will return TRUE. For example, "if MyObject", "if {abc:123}", and "if []" will all test as TRUE. This can be useful if a function returns FALSE or an object. And yes, I know ...

Re: [ListView] How to force "LV_GetText()" function to get text longer than 8191 characters? Topic is solved

do you have anything against removing "p_maxChar" or "p_maxbyte" parameters? Do you think it's unsafe or something? The p_MaxTCHARs parameter has a default value that is meant to be ignored (read: unspecified) in most cases. For example: StringFound:=LVM_GetText(hLV,LV_GetNext(0,"F"),1) However, if...

Re: [ListView] How to force "LV_GetText()" function to get text longer than 8191 characters? Topic is solved

The LVM_GETITEMTEXT message uses the LVITEM structure to determine what's what. The pszText member contain the address to the space where the retrieved text is stored. The cchTextMax member must be set to the number of characters have been allocated. The amount of space necessary depends on whether ...

Re: [ListView] How to force "LV_GetText()" function to get text longer than 8191 characters? Topic is solved

The function looks good but the 64MB limit is wasteful and could cause an "out of memory" script error on smaller systems. Removing 0 from the third\last parameter of the VarSetCapacity function is correct for the LVM_GETITEMTEXT message but it does not stop the l_Text variable from consuming the 64...
