Library folder question to Erel


Licensed User
I have to keep "pruning" the contents of my Dbasic Libraries folder as Dbasic keeps copying dlls there while I am developing them or playing with ones I have found.Two questions : -

1) Should I have "System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid.dll" there?

2)Is there a reason why Dbasic automatically copies dlls to the library? I would much rather copy them manually if I want them permanently available.

1) System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid.dll is part of the .Net Framework.
For some reason it is missing from Smartphone 2003 devices.
If you are using a Table control on such device you should copy this dll to the Smartphone.
2) Basic4ppc "collects" libraries that the developer uses.
The original thought was that it will help users add new libraries when these are released.
I will rethink about it and maybe remove this "feature".

I think not...
At least give the user tha abillity to choose wether to auto-copy dll to libs folder or not, don't just remove it....
