March 2021
« on: March 31, 2021, 03:21:34 PM »
Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of March 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.


(1) Card Window

The Properties (toolbar) window still needs more properties filling in.

Feature Lost:-
In HN5 buttons will  not support the display images as in previous versions of HN.
Unfortunately its not easy to get this feature working cross-platform with Free Pascal.

(2) Run Window

Working on the creation of controls such as buttons etc on the Runtime window.

Filling in code for event handlers.


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 still has errors loading icons etc, so loading halts.
I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
