April 2021

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.


(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.

Windows 7 MainCode Scripts

Lubuntu 16.04 Card Scripts

Lubuntu 16.04 MainCode Scripts

(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.
