    Although he may not want to officially use it the community may still want it. Post a link or zip and I'm sure many people will use it

    Vader, don't be disappointed and let "us" have a look and see if we like it.
    It would be nice to have different choices and sources of help.
    Keeping up with all updates will be hard work though, so be sure that you can.

    Edit : I've looked at your document and like it. A simple example is something I miss a lot in the docs i've seen.
    There's still a lot to do, but I like the structure.
    Please go on...

    I think this is a great resource, do you plan on keeping it up to date? If so, I would recommend you start a new thread to share this with everyone, that way you can keep it updated in that thread. This is definitely something I will be using while I code.

    Begginer's guide v2.40 & source code examples

    Hi and thanks for this excellent product!

    I'm finally studying the beginner's guide v2.4
    I found out that the example programs as described in the pdf file are not exactly the same as in SourceCode.
    In particular in OneLayoutStreched in pdf code is:
    Code:
    Sub GetDevicePhysicalSize As Float
    Dim lv As LayoutValues
    lv = 
    GetDeviceLayoutValues
    Return Sqrt(Power(lv.Height / lv.Scale / 1602) + Power(lv.Width / lv.Scale
    1602))
    End Sub
    and in SourceCode folder code is:
    Code:
    Sub CheckDeviceType
       
    ' check device type, used to define text sizes
       ' should be completed if necessary
       
       lv = 
    GetDeviceLayoutValues
       
       
    Select lv.Scale
       
    Case 2
          DeviceType = 
    "Smartphone 5"
          TextSizeRatio = 
    1.5
    ...
    ...
    also TestLayouts has minimal differences.
    Maybe older versions in SourceCode directory?

    TIA

    Thank you for reporting it !

    This will be amended in the next update.
    The source code is more recent than the text.

    Best regards.

    mailparser app

    The beginner's guide shows tantalising glimpses of the mailparser app (when it talks about the built-in documentation feature) but I can't find this app.

    Is it still available?

    Sorry, but I don't understand what you are speeking about.
    Could you please be more precise.

    Best regards.

    The example in the guide is only to show the principle of the built-in documentation and not refering to a specific program, class or library.
    Instead of making another example I copied Erels' original example.

    Best regards.

    Hi klaus,

    Thanks for your time and effort on the version 2.7 released.

    Why can not make the source code available on GIT HUB or Code.google so that other people can contribute to it?

    All the code projects supplied with the Beginner's Guide and the User's Guide are example codes to illustrate different subjects.
    All Basic4Android users can use them and modify them to their needs.
    I don't think it would be really useful to put these onto GIT HUB nor Code.google which are hudge containers.
    I'm sure that it is easier to search for a specific code in this forum rather than in much more general and big forums.
    That's the reason why the Code Snippets subforum was created.
