Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of August 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), Raspberry Pi and OS X.

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.


Runtime Engine

The runtime engine's interrupts have been greatly improved are now working properly on the Windows platform. They still  trigger the correct  buttons scripts and are more responsive.

The canavas control has more functions implemented.

In the picture below, the canvas shows as black due to a bug in the Edit Fields accepting text from the PUT command.
This bug prevents test data generated via the Test Data button appearing in the X & Y edit field so the colored bars do not show.

Windows 7 x64:

Unfortunately this tiime there is no image for Linux Raspberry Pi(Buster) as the new interrupt threading causes an exception and there was not enough time left to debug it.

I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
