Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of January 2021.

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(Ubuntu) and now OS X Catalina.

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


Dragging and resizing of controls on the Card creator is now working.

Properties (toolbar) window - selected controls such as buttons are now working/displaying.

Still improving Properties window and retrieval of a selected control's data for display/editing.

Creation a new control or card is still being filled in.


The current HN5 build works on
 - Windows x32 & x64, including XP x32,  7 x64, 10 x64
 - Ubuntu 18.04
 - Rapsberry Pi (Buster)
 - ReactOS - an x32 OS that can run many Windows apps.
 - OS X Yosemite and Catalina
 - macOS Big Sur, HN starts up but has errors loading icons etc, so loading halts.
I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
