Here is the final version of my ScriptBasic and VB6 ActiveX DLL form project. A multi-threaded application with a VB6 frontend.

Why I love ScriptBasic.

Dave Zimmer didn't get to support for passing back floats in the VB6 callback routine.

No problem. I pass the float as a STR() and in the SB callback function I do the following to make it a float again.

Code: Script BASIC
  1. fnum = fstr + 0
  2.

What are you writing your terminal project in?

Still kind of around here - but just footling about with stuff rather than advancing projects.

Currently working on a colour serial terminal design (VT320 compatible-ish) using a VGA Monitor and PS/2 keyboard.

Mind you, after the terminal is running, I need to build a keyboard controller, too.

I though I would provide an update about how my VB6 and ScriptBasic project is going. My Sage 100 to Postgres SQL interface runs around the clock and is as solid as a rock. Memory use is stable using 1.5% of the CPU.

This is my first ScriptBasic 'for real' threaded application using VB6 as a front end.

The Rust version for Windows adopted by Microsoft uses an IDE that looks like VB6. The interesting part is the IDE is encapsulated in a COM/OLE DLL.

I'll post more about the IDE if it can be used generically.

Scripting Languages / VB6 ActiveX DLL GUI Forms

I just completed a project for a client that used a VB6 ActiveX DLL form and a ScriptBasic thread for the process keeping the UI active and updated with the threads status.

If there is any interest in using portable UI components in your next project leave a post or I will just keep this for myself if no one cares.
