What are the limitations on the free projects by the way, Malkom? Are they truly free?

Yes DamionT, they are truly free, use them as you like, and no need to give credit to anyone.

P.S
I've just moved your question to its own thread as now easier for others to find.

Macintosh / OS X High Sierra can't run HyperNext v4x
« Last post by Malkom on January 05, 2018, 10:11:24 AM »
Hello,

Unfortunately HyperNext Studio, along with its built applications and stacks will not run under OS X High Sierra.

High Sierra has a new files system called Apple File System(APFS) that does not support 32 bit applications such as HyperNext.

Another user and myself have both conformed this. When an attempt is made to run HyperNext Creator it gives a few error dialogs stating that it cannot find certain files.

Supposedly, the next update to High Sierra will prevent 32 bit apps from even running.

Here are more details on High Sierra and problems running 32 bit apps:-

The next version of HyperNext (v5), won't be out until late this year, a long time away, but it will have 64  bit versions so should run under OS X High Sierra and later.

How can it be created?
Sorry, i don't have time to work on this but the post above is a starting point.

Once you can get the HyperNext Internet chat demo working across two computers then you add the functionality you need.

To get the demo working install HyperNext Studio on both computers, then load the demos, try to connect and use chat. Actually, no need to install HN on both computers, just use HN's build option to create a desktop app from the demo, and run that on the other computers.

Databases / Re: Develop a proper Billing Software using HyperNext and DBMS
« Last post by Malkom on October 18, 2017, 02:20:54 PM »
Greetings!
I'm new here and want to develop a billing software for my dad.
He's a legal consultant at various industries and charges particular amount monthly to the clients every month.
I want to develop a software which generates bill in PDF Format or Word with the help of any DBMS.
Kindly Support

Hi Sharan,

I'm sorry but I can't see an easy way to programmatically generate a PDF or Word document using HyperNext as their internal formats are quite complex. On the plus side, HyperNext does have MySQL functionality though.

However, a HyperNext program could indirectly create a PDF or Word file, by printing a client's bill to the printer driver that is set up to create a PDF or Word document, although this is clumsy. 
 I've tester this with the trial version of a printer driver called Print to Word that can actually create a Word document using HyperNext but its very clumsy as described below.
HyperNext prints to the driver which then opens up a Printer to Word dialog box asking where the file should go. The Windows OS printer dialog can be skipped using the PrinterOpenDefaultFN function.

This code if from the HyperNext Printing project.

Code: [Select]
@If pageSetup=1 Then
    Put PrinterOpenDefaultFN(0) into printOkay
    Put printOkay into field 1
    If printOkay=1 Then
       PrinterTest
    EndIf
@EndIf

 Note, the Print to Word driver creates the word document correctly but always launches Microsoft Word. Perhaps there is a way around this.

Note, you can find the Print to Word driver below although the trial versions just prints the first two pages of a document.

Regarding programmatically converting text to a PDF or Word file, these websites show how complex it is, if you are writing the code yourself:-

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb264572(office.12).aspx


By the way, some other programming languages such as C# and Java can use libraries for programmatically converting text to PDF or Word.

Graphics / Re: Is there a built in sprite creator/paint tool?
« Last post by Malkom on October 09, 2017, 06:01:20 AM »
Or do you have to import pictures of your own. I really liked the built in painter in hypercard :/

Unfortunately, it doesn't have a sprite designer painter, so sprites need to be read in from image files.
The Aquarium demo project covers this.

HN v1.x used to have a built in Back paint program. It was similar to Hypercard's, where one could create back pictures and assign them to multiple cards. Actually the code and objects are still  mostly there, just aren't used, can't recall why. HN's code still reads in back objects so needs the Back painter module converting/reactivating. I'll look into this as it was a really nice feature.
