Getting Started / Re: Error creating new project with Developer
« Last post by Franktic on May 24, 2017, 11:22:18 PM »
Thanks for that.  I tried the Quickstart developer example and only got one Beep.  Your explanation is spot on. This will keep me going for a while. 

Another issue I found, in both Developer and Creator 4.01, selecting Close (or pressing Ctrl+W) from the top menu appears to have no effect.  My expectation is that Close will Close the current project and ask to Save if required.

Please understand these are not complaints.  This is an amazing piece of software.  I am happy to help even if it is to point out issues that will be fixed for later releases.

Thank you for your feedback - it always nice to hear from users and should also mean fewer bugs in HN5.

Yes, Livecode certainly an amazing development system.


By the way, I worked through the Quickstart section of Developer and some things have changed as Operating Systems have improved. The example of Test Beep. In older OSs sending several beeps would result in them being queued but under Windows 7 at least, only one sounds. So putting a delay such as a Wait(500) command after the Beep inside the FOR loop would cause all the beeps to sound.

Brilliant - thanks for the prompt reply and fix.  I've given it a try and it looks good.  HN reminds me of Livecode, and I thought that was a great bit of software! I'll keep playing with HN and provide feedback, if that is OK.

An updated version of HyperNext Developer for Windows is available from the forum Downloads section.

HN Developer for OS X does not have this bug.

Note, the annoying refresh bug is still there - the first time a project is run in HN Developer its controls are not shown so just rerun it.

Thanks for an exciting piece of software.  I have worked through the tute for the creator, good stuff!
I am having a basic problem with the Developer 4.01 on a Windows 10 system.  When I select New to create a new project and I select a new file name eg. First, I get the following error:
File Save Error :- \First\First.plu    Clicking OK gives this next message:  Project SAVE Failure!  The 'First' Directory has been created, along with the Data and Resources folders but no First.plu

What am i doing wrong?

Thats great you worked through the tutorials and really nice to hear you are enjoying it.

Thank you for reporting the Developer problem.

About Developer - it sounds like a bug. I've had a quick look at the HN source code and it appears something is missing. It tries to copy a movie template but can't find it and so aborts creating a Developer project.

I'll look at this fully tomorrow(Wednesday) morning and try to get this working.

I just tried to download the software Ver 4.01 and nearly there got an error message:
"Sorry, you reached your download limit for this file, only once per hour for - SetupHyperNext401.exe"
I certainly only tried once.... any suggestions? Will it resume tomorrow?
CHeers,
Joe (absolute beginner) :)

Hi Joe

Sorry for the limit - I've just changed the limit to 20 minutes.

In May the web site got hammered - some IP address were downloading over 10GB  - so i put a limiter in - it now remembers IP address and when they last downloaded.

I hope its working for you now.

Malkom

10gb that's crazy. i wonder why the do it?

Development Progress / March update
« Last post by Malkom on March 06, 2017, 06:49:41 AM »
Overview

Here is an update on HN5's development progress since its development language was switched to Free Pascal.
From now on, early each month I'll do a brief update on HN5's status.

The short term goal is to implement the HN core language and load HN4 & 3 projects.
Once it can load these projects then can simply write projects in HN4 and import them, so don't yet need the Editor & Creator to be working.


Progress

* All the major modules are in place and started filling in code for non-API areas
    where API areas are Windows and their controls etc.

* Tracking system working
   - every unfinished procedure/function/event when called writes its name once to a log file.

* All strings are UTF8 so can work with languages other than English, eg Russian, Japanese etc.

* Main module and app initialisation plus Splash Window.

* File system and paths now changed to Linux type, will actually be better for OS X & Windows
  - will still be backwards compatible with HN4, 3 projects etc.

* Compiler globals - variables mainly done - working on objects and some procedures/functions.

* The two compiler initialisation modules for keywords and functions now done -
   currently there are 684 keywords and 628 functions in HN Studio's language.

* Compiler main module
   - Pass 1 & 2 now done.
   - Pass 3 is the most complex and so working through this.
   - Pass 4 fairly trivial but still to do.
   
* RuntimeGlobals - variables mainly done - working on objects and some procedures/functions.

* RuntimeEngine - variables mainly done - working on objects
    This is the most complex yet interesting part of HN.

* Runtime window(card window) started.

* Creator Window, Toolbar and Mode Switcher started

* Editor window & Editor code started.

* SaveLoadGlobals - now focussing on LoadProject and its required objects.


Development Tools

Using Free Pascal and Code Typhon on Lubuntu for main development.

Using ProjectLibre to keep track of everything
 - currently ove 3400 procedures/functions/events.
 - later need to add another couple of hundred from HAC.


Aims

This month to get the LoadProject routines working so it can read in a project from HN 4 & 3.

Getting Started / Re: Supported Databases

Hi, From the documentation i understand that SQLITE is the database solution to use. Apart from SQLITE does HYPERNEXT support other database systems like firebirdsql (over network or embedded) or Apache Derby or MS Access or ODBC/JDBC

Hi venu,

Currently HyperNext only support SQLite databases. Also these must be stored in a file and not connected to a database server over a network.

Its possible to make a HyperNext program to act as a front end to a HyperNext database  but it would still be SQLite.
