Development Progress / December 2020
« Last post by Malkom on December 31, 2020, 04:56:44 PM »
Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of December 2020.

The aim is to get the Chart demo project running inside HN5 Creator IDE.

The development is being carried out on a Windows 7 x64 machine with regular testing of HN5 on Linux(Lubuntu) and now OS X Yosemite.

The development language is Free Pascal which should ensure HN5 will be able to run on a variety of Operating Systems, both newer and older versions.
The main targets being Windows, Linux and OS X.


HN5 CREATOR GUI

Currently filling in the Card creator and its controls(objects) such as buttons, fields etc.

Dragging and resizing of controls on the Card creator.

Editing of controls and their properties.



HN5 CURRENTLY RUNS ON

The current HN5 build works on
 - Windows x64 & x32, including XP to 10
 - Ubuntu 18.04
 - Rapsberry Pi (Buster)
 - ReactOS - an x32 OS that can run many Windows app.
 - OS X Yosemite has some log file problems!

Getting Started / Re: Catalina demands 64 bit apps

Any chance HyperNext for Mac will be revised into a 64 bit version? Neither Catalina nor Big Sur will run it.

Yes it should :)
The RAD system I use is Free Pascal(FP) and they now have FP working on both Catalina and Big Sur.

Hopefully there should be some test results for an HN build for Catalina & Big Sur by the end of this January.

COMPILER

The compiler and debugger is being tested, debugged and integrated into the Editor.

It can already compile much of the Chart project.

There were some major problems with the debugging under Free Pascal on Windows x32 builds but it won't delay progress any further:-

Hello guys, new to programming, i have just created my interface which includes a picture canvas and a single button. I want, when someone clicks the button an e-mail with subject "TEST" and message "It's me!" to be sent to a specific recipient. How can i make it work?

Hello,

Below is a script that you can place in your button to send an email. Note, it requires a field on the card where it can place the result, either 0 for fail, or 1 for sent.

By the way, the script does not work with my web host because they are very security conscious and do not allow port 25 to be used.
They mandate port 587 with START TLS security that HN does not support.

However, if your web host allows port 25, or 587 without the extra security, then the script should work.


Code: [Select]
Local port,server,username,password
Local res


Put 25 into port
Put 'mail.yourdomain.com' into server
Put 'name@yourdomain.com' into username
Put '123456789' into password

EmailSetServer(port,server,username,password)

EmailCreateNew

EmailSetFrom(username)

EmailSetTo('friend@somedomain.com')

EmailSetSubject('TEST')

EmailSetBodyPlain('It's me!')


Put EmailSendFN(600) into res
Put res into field 1

Getting Started / Re: Standalone Location & Movie Help
« Last post by Malkom on October 26, 2020, 06:03:14 AM »
Thank you! I still can't find my project folder.

About your project folder. If you forgot to create a new project then the default project folder will  be used.

The path is  something like: C:\Users\Malkom\Documents\My HyperNext 4\Default_CR

The path will be roughly  similar for OS X.

Note,
If you want to turn your project in the default folder into a new project, for instance MoviePlayer then:
  • Copy the folder - Default_CR to another location.
  • Rename the Default_CR folder to MoviePlayer.
  • Inside the new project folder, rename Default_CR.prj to MoviePlayer.prj.



When I put in a 'go back' button on my movie's card and click it, it takes me back to the desired card, but the movie doesn't go away. How do I fix this? I've tried MovieSetView, MovieViewFN, and such to no avail.

This is actually a bug when the movie player doesn't hide on a card without its own movie player.

A workaround is to add the the follwing in your target card's open event:

Code: [Select]
MovieSetHeight(1,0)

MovieSetView(1,0)

If you want it in the button, then disable the Button Goto, and place this in the button's script:

Code: [Select]
MovieSetHeight(1,0)

MovieSetView(1,0)

Gotocard 2

I tried compiling my program. It goes through alright. Now I'm having issues finding where it puts the file.
When HN builds an app(executable) or stack, it places the built app/stack in the project's folder.
For instance if your project is called My Movie Player, then the built app/stack should be in the My Movie Player folder.

Note, when releasing your app or stack, the original project file is not required but remember to make a copy of it somewhere.
Only the app/stack plus any dependencies such as datafiles, images, vidoe setc are required.


As for movies, when I run my program and try to start the movie, it doesn't start. What am I doing wrong?
There is a bug in a movie player's control panel that prevents some movies such as MP4 from playing.

See number 5 in this post:-
http://www.tigabyte.com/smf/index.php?topic=326.0

However, it is possible to control a movie, play or pause it by using the relevant movie command.
 
In the scripts below, the movie player control on the card has ID 1.

The movie to be played was dragged and dropped intoto the project's movie library via the Movie Library menu option  under the menu Windows.
 

Use one button  to play the movie with the command MoviePlayNormalSpeed:-
Code: [Select]
MoviePlayNormalSpeed(1)


Use another button  to pause the movie with the command MoviePause:-
Code: [Select]
MoviePause(1)


As a movie player's controller is bugged, it can be hidden using the command MovieSetController.
Its usual to place this or similar commands in the card's open event:-
Code: [Select]
MovieSetController(1,0)



Attached below is a simple movie player that has a small movie in the project folder.

More MP4 movies can be found here:-

Thank you! I still can't find my project folder, but the movie issue is resolved. Another has appeared, though. When I put in a 'go back' button on my movie's card and click it, it takes me back to the desired card, but the movie doesn't go away. How do I fix this? I've tried MovieSetView, MovieViewFN, and such to no avail.
