Curently, PxBasic and PxPlus only offers a native GUI for Windows using their Nomads GUI builder. The goal of this project is to use GTK-Server (.so shared object) to script the replacement of PxPlus native Windows API high level directives with Gtk for Nomads.

NOMADS

If you would like to contribute to this effort with the hope that the author will incorporate this feature into the language as a plug-in for Linux, send me a e-mail support@scriptbasic.org to obtain an account on the forum.

Update

It has become painfully obvious that trying to enhance a commercial Basic language is a losing battle. Beside having to deal with everything externally due to no source access, the company takes issue to your efforts as taking revenue away from their offerings. The Gtk cross platform desktop GUI for PxPlus will be my last contribution to this language. The amount of grief it generates isn't worth it.

Validation

This customer spent days trying to resolve his issues connecting to a MySQL database with PxPlus. The resolution stated by a PxPlus dealer says it all.

Quote
I think I know what is happening:  you are using a v9 PxPLUS, I'm using a
v10 version.  The MySQL interface is a part of a v9 ProvideX Professional
licence, but in PxPLUS v9 it's not included in a Professional licence. If
you want to use the MySQL interface in v9 PxPLUS, you will need to buy the
PxPLUS MySQL package (#10004). Starting with PxPLUS v10, the MySQL interface
is included in a Professional licence, so upgrading to v10 would also solve
your problem.

I created a generic libgtk-server.so shared object for Ubuntu 64 and attached it.  If you would like to build the same for your version of Linux, visit the GTK-Server Project Site and download the source.

90% of programming jobs are in creating Line of Business software:

Economics 101: the price for anything (including you) is a function of the supply of it and demand for it.  Let’s talk about the demand side first.  Most software is not sold in boxes, available on the Internet, or downloaded from the App Store.  Most software is boring one-off applications in corporations, under-girding every imaginable facet of the global economy.  It tracks expenses, it optimizes shipping costs, it assists the accounting department in preparing projections, it helps design new widgets, it prices insurance policies, it flags orders for manual review by the fraud department, etc etc.  Software solves business problems.  Software often solves business problems despite being soul-crushingly boring and of minimal technical complexity.  For example, consider an internal travel expense reporting form.  Across a company with 2,000 employees, that might save 5,000 man-hours a year (at an average fully-loaded cost of $50 an hour) versus handling expenses on paper, for a savings of $250,000 a year.  It does not matter to the company that the reporting form is the world’s simplest CRUD app, it only matters that it either saves the company costs or generates additional revenue.

There are companies which create software which actually gets used by customers, which describes almost everything that you probably think of when you think of software.  It is unlikely that you will work at one unless you work towards making this happen.  Even if you actually work at one, many of the programmers there do not work on customer-facing software, either.

If this is true, companies will be looking at Linux and the vast offering of open source solutions to save money or increase revenues.

Don't assume just because you don't have to pay for the application and have free access to the code to change if you wish that open source software is free. Someone needs to maintain it and keep it current with the OS (community contributions) and support is either peer or pay depending on the popularity or business value.

I created a Ubuntu 32 bit Amazon EC2 instance and compiled gtk-server as a shared object to be used with the Ubuntu 32 bit version of PxPlus. When I have time I will show a Glade based GUI example running under PxPlus. I hate wasting my time and maybe someone will find this of value. The negative karma I get from most of the ProvideX list is disheartening.

John i really don't know why you wasting your time with PWX or Provide basic
(what is the real name anyway ???).?

I was able to verify that the gtk-server.so I built for Ubuntu 32 works with PxPlus version 10. My plan is to convert the ScriptBasic version of the Glade based calculator example to PxBasic. At that point with the Gtk definitions I already built and the Glade interface, one should be able to Use PxBasic/PxPlus/ProvideX to build native GUI applications under Linux and potentially OS X.

I'll call it my contribution to the PxPlus Linux developer's group with the hope a few brave souls will give it a try.

I decided to take a break from getting the PxPlus version of the calculator working and spent some time freshing up my Gtk installation under Windows XP. (in a VirtualBox) I really like the Gtk preference tool. It has a bunch of themes to choose from. I decided on Clear Looks to match my Ubuntu Linux theme.

FWIW

This should work under PxBasic/PxPlus (Windows/Linux/Mac) as well.

I was able to get PxBasic 10 under Windows to work with GTK-Server.



Code: [Select]
! Glade Hello World

gtk_lib = DLL(ADDR "gtk-server.dll")

ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","gtk_server_cfg-cfg=/GTK-server/gtk-server.cfg"+$00$)

! Initialize GTK & Glade
ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","gtk_init NULL NULL"+$00$)
ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","glade_init"+$00$)

! Load and show Glade defined window
strptr = DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","glade_xml_new "+quo+"hello.glade"+quo+" NULL NULL"+$00$)
xml$=MEM(strptr,0)
ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","glade_xml_signal_autoconnect "+xml$+$00$)
! Get window ID and define window close event
strptr=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","glade_xml_get_widget "+xml$+" window1"+$00$)
gtkwin$=MEM(strptr,0)
ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","gtk_server_connect "+gtkwin$+" delete-event window"+$00$)

! Event Handler
REPEAT
  strptr=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","gtk_server_callback WAIT"+$00$)
  this_event$ = MEM(strptr,0)
UNTIL this_event$ = "window"

ok=DLL(gtk_lib,"gtk","gtk_widget_destroy "+gtkwin$+$00$)
ok=DLL(DROP gtk_lib)

Chris sent me his first pass working with GTK-Server. (TCP)

Quote
John,

Here is a first pass attempt at the example from gtk-server.org (using
PxBasic, Gtk-server and Gtk2 Runtime on Windows Vista):

Code: [Select]
0010 BEGIN
0020 OPEN (HFN)"[tcp];65000"; LET CHAN=LFO
0030 INVOKE "C:\GTK-server\gtk-server.exe -sock=127.0.0.1:65000"
0040 READ RECORD (CHAN,TIM=60,ERR=CONN_FAILURE)X$; IF X$<>"" THEN GOTO CONN_FAILURE
0050 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_init NULL NULL")
0060 LET HWIN$=FN_GTK$("gtk_window_new 0")
0070 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_window_set_title "+HWIN$+"""PxBasic GTK-server""")
0080 LET HTBL$=FN_GTK$("gtk_table_new 10 10 1")
0090 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_container_add "+HWIN$+" "+HTBL$)
0100 LET HBUT$=FN_GTK$("gtk_button_new_with_label ""Click to Quit""")
0110 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_table_attach_defaults "+HTBL$+" "+HBUT$+" 5 9 5 9")
0120 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_widget_show_all "+HWIN$)
0130 LET EVENT$=""
0140 WHILE CSE(EVENT$,HBUT$,HWIN$)=0
0150 LET EVENT$=FN_GTK$("gtk_server_callback wait")
0160 WEND
0170 LET JUNK$=FN_GTK$("gtk_server_exit",ERR=*NEXT)
0180 DONE:
0190 END
0200 CONN_FAILURE:
0210 PRINT "Connection failure"
0220 GOTO DONE
0230 GTK:
0240 DEF FN_GTK$(LOCAL COMMAND$)
0250 LOCAL X$
0260 WRITE RECORD (CHAN)COMMAND$
0270 LET X$=""; READ RECORD (CHAN,TIM=60)X$
0280 RETURN X$
0290 END DEF



In my opinion, using TCP/IP has more promise than using the direct DLL
method and is easier to understand (at least for me).  In addition, it
will ultimately provide for separation between the client and the server
(similar to the Windx model) which is something I care about.  It would
be interesting to run this on non-Windows platforms.  Doing so should be
just a matter of changing the location of the gtk-server executable on
line 30.
