Has somebody experience in the differences ? So what i need to change in the sourcecode to successfully compile the HMG code in MiniGUI ?
Hi Theo,

Thanks for your interest!

Minigui Ex have the special header file i_hmgcompat.ch at the folder minigui\include for HMG compatibility.

You've found here the needed wrappers for a migration your HMG code to Minigui. :arrow:

If you didn't used the deeper HMG features when it may be enough for your conversion...

In hope that useful. :idea:

Ahh..I did not knew about i_hmgcompat.ch, when I made two version of my report class.
This sure will help us a lot, to quickly migrate Hmg codes, though I have lately doing all my codes in Minigui Ex.

Regards,

Anand

I just made a start :D

The first thing a bumped in to is the 'WINDOW' function. I often use:

CENTER WINDOW <FormName> IN <FormName2>

This syntax is not recognized in MiniGUI.

CENTER WINDOW <WindowName>

Is it possible to add this ? Or how do i rewrite my code to achieve the same functionality (center a Window in another Window)?

Theo

Hi Theo,

Yes, it is possible in Minigui with the following global command
SET CENTERWINDOW RELATIVE [DESKTOP | PARENT]
which should be placed before your window's definition.

BTW There are the following Windows related commands now
SET WINDOW MAIN [ON | OFF]

SET CENTERWINDOW RELATIVE [DESKTOP | PARENT]

[SET | GET] WINDOWPROPERTY <name> ;
[ OF <parent> ] ;
VALUE <value> ;
[ <direct: DIRECT> ]

RELEASE WINDOWPROPERTY <name> ;
[ OF <parent> ] ;
[ VALUE <value> ] ;
[ NOFREE ]

RESET MINMAXINFO [OF | WINDOW] <FormName> TO DEFAULT

SET AUTOSCROLL [ON | OFF]

SET SCROLLSTEP TO <step>
SET SCROLLPAGE TO <step>

FLASH WINDOW <FormName> [ CAPTION | TASKBAR | ALL ] COUNT <nTimes> INTERVAL <nMilliseconds>

ANIMATE WINDOW <FormName> [ INTERVAL <nMilliseconds> ] MODE <nFlags>

SET DIALOGBOX [ POSITION ] ROW <nRow> COL <nCol>
SET DIALOGBOX [ POSITION ] CENTER OF [PARENT | <hWnd> | DESKTOP]
SET DIALOGBOX [ POSITION ] DISABLE

DISABLE [ WINDOW ] EVENT OF <FormName>
ENABLE [ WINDOW ] EVENT OF <FormName>

ON APPEVENT [ID] <nId> ACTION <bAction> OF <window> [NOACTIVE] [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>
EMIT [EVENT] [ID] <nId> OF <window>
REMOVE APPEVENT [[ID] [<nId>] | ALL] OF <window> [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>
UPDATE APPEVENT [ID] <nId> [ACTION <bAction>] OF <window> [NOACTIVE] [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>

ON WINEVENT [ID] <nId> ACTION <bAction> OF <window> [NOACTIVE] [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>
REMOVE WINEVENT [[ID] [<nId>] | ALL] OF <window> [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>
UPDATE WINEVENT [ID] <nId> [ACTION <bAction>] OF <window> [NOACTIVE] [ONCE] [RESULT] TO <lResult>
Hope that helps. :idea:

Grigory,
Hope that helps.
For shure !!

In HMG i was using:

Code: Select all

cParentWindowName:=ThisWindow.Name   
.
.
CENTER WINDOW Windowname in &cParentWindowName
So the MiniGui syntax does just this, but even more elegant !

I also found another little difference:

HMG uses:

Code: Select all

<WindowName>.NoSysMenu := .T.
In MiniGui it should be:

Code: Select all

<WindowName>.SysMenu := .F.


Thanks Grigory !

Hi Grigory,

I am sorry to bother you again :oops: . In my program I use a modified version of the HMG WordScribe sample:

c:\hmg.3.4.4\SAMPLES\HFCL\WordScribe

In this code there seem to be some functions used not available in MiniGui, like:

.FONTSCRIPT
.LINK
.PARAALIGNMENT
Etc..

They are described over here:

http://www.hmgforum.com/hmgdoc/data/richeditbox.htm

Is there a way to include them ? Or is there another way to achieve the same functionality ?

Thanks in advance !

Theo

Hi Theo,

You are correct: there are not the above features in the Minigui core.

But there is an other way with using of the samples code at the folders
minigui\samples\Advanced\RichEditEx and
minigui\samples\Advanced\RichEditEx_2.

Please be so kind to review (and adapt to your need) the file l_richeditbox.prg at the above folders.

It will require a some effort, of course. 8-)

Hi Grigory,

Thanks again for your response again !

minigui\samples\Advanced\RichEditEx_2.
I studied the samples earlier, but i could not find for example the superscript, align and link etc. functionality in those samples.
It will require a some effort, of course.
The effort is no problem. I am aware it is gone take some time to adapt my sources to migrate them form HMG to MiniGui. But I have really no clue to add (for example) the superscript function in the RICHEDITBOX control.

But I know, I am a little bit spoiled :D : all the functionality I used before in HMG is implemented in MiniGui too (many times even in a more advanced way) :!:
This is the first time I bumped into HMG features not implemented in MiniGui. So for now I will remove the functionality from my sources.

But maybe when the time is right (certainly no hurry!) I humbly like suggest a feature request to implement the additional RICHEDITBOX HMG features into al future release of MiniGui.

Theo

Hi Theo,

Thanks for your kind words!

A very long time ago Isaac Newton said,
"If I have been able to see further, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants."

The such giants in Minigui are Roberto Lopez and Claudio Soto. 8-)
