Development Progress / April 2021
« Last post by Malkom on April 30, 2021, 02:42:42 PM »
Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of April 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 OS X.

Regarding OS X,  there some runtime errors caused by missing image resources but simply not enough time left to resolve them.

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.


HN5 CREATOR GUI

(1) Creator GUI

The Creator Card GUI is now usable but still a few things to do.

The Properties (toolbar) window needs group properties implementing.

The Properties (toolbar) window full creation of all controls.

The control drag & stretching needs to be much smoother.

(2) Script Editor

The script editor load scripts fine but when called via a compile error there is a large refresh lag.

(3) Runtime Preview Window

The Preview and Runtime windows actually use the same window but Preview is passive.

Controls such as buttons are now showing correctly in the Runtime window. However,  most font settings, their types and sizes are currently left at default so look very poor. This is especially so on Linux.

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.


HN5 CREATOR GUI

(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.



HN5 CURRENTLY RUNS ON

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.

Getting Started / Re: Catalina demands 64 bit apps
« Last post by Malkom on December 21, 2020, 11:16:33 AM »
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.
