Basic4ppc version 6.30 beta will be released next week.
Users who like to help by testing the new version should send me a private message.
Users who tested the previous beta version, still have access to the beta forum and therefore don't need to send me a PM.

Major improvements in V6.30:
- Most libraries will be merged to the executable during compilation.
- All images that were added with the visual designer will be embedded in the executable.
- ImageList - Support for adding a list of images from the visual designer. These images will be embedded in the executable.
- New compilation target: Forced QVGA mode. Applications compiled in this mode will use the emulated QVGA mode on VGA devices, making it simple to target both VGA and QVGA devices.
- Line continuation character - Underscore (_) will allow breaking long lines to several shorter lines.
- New search and replace dialog (desktop IDE).
- Array methods - Including methods to easily fill 1d arrays and 2d arrays.
- Bug fixes and other minor improvements.

Note: Embedding images and libraries will only be available by compiling with the optimized compiler.

I'm certain the VGA emulation will be welcomed by many and I'm looking forward to testing it myself.
As always, excellent work Erel.

The device IDE wasn't changed in this version.

Another new feature added (desktop IDE) is AutoComplete for variables, controls, subs and objects.

VGA calendar

Is in this version (next beta or full) planned fixed calendar for VGA? I tried it in this beta and calendar has no change...

Did you try it in Forced QVGA mode? It should appear correctly.

Yes, in forced QVGA mode it works, but it means, that I can not write vga application, when I need control Calendar.

oversight of all the functions and keywords?

OK, it finally happened....:sign0085:
Since the start of B4PPC I lost oversight of all the functions and keywords with the newer versions.
Is there a "complete" manual in which all the keywords are summarized?

help appreciated.

You will need:
B4X:
For i = 0 to 249
 arr(i) = someValue
Next

If the values are different from one another, them use a long string, and use strsplit, wich creates an array with the values...
something like:

myvalues()=StrSplit("250,1,0,45,10,101",",")
Will populate an array called myvalues:
myvalue(0)=250
myvalue(1)=1
myvalue(2)=0
myvalue(3)=45
myvalue(4)=10
myvalue(5)=101
