That's awesome how you have around 50 color names memorized! (and spelled correctly)You can still double click on the text and manually type in a color, for example red, blue, black, white, green, purple, gold, magenta, orange, gray, pink, silver, brown plus lightxxx, darkxxx etc.
I do not think it's documented. I noticed a few days ago that the color names were not there, so I clicked on 000000 (black) and typed the word cyan, the color changed from black to cyan (00ffff)That's awesome how you have around 50 color names memorized! (and spelled correctly)
Btw, where was this documented???
Why this nonsense? Weren't you able to run your current projects in the new version? Is the new IDE based on a new programming language?i'm starting to feel like this upgrade is bordering the vb6->.net situation
It's unfortunate that you have to take the negative route vs the positive and make it personal. Obviously it's not a radical language change, etc. My feedback is merely an observation and metaphor of the vb6->.net situation from a paying customer. Btw, Windows 8 is another great example.Why this nonsense? Weren't you able to run your current projects in the new version? Is the new IDE based on a new programming language?
I really appreciate the beta testers help with the development of new versions. The beta testers feedback is very important to me. However to be a beta tester you need to have a positive attitude not a negative attitude. Please do me a favor and stop using the beta version.
+1Back on the topic of the color picker
Thank you for your comments. If i am correct, most people here are European, and non-north American so perhaps the "starting to feel like" phrase is not being understood as intended. (Btw, i"m married to a European ) it doesn't say/mean "i think this is like...". It's not an absolute comparison. There's typically a large gap between "starting" and "ending". Think of a marathon, if you're at the "start" line, you have 24 long grueling miles (38km) ahead of you. My reply mentioned windows 8, maybe that comparison/metaphor would have been better to use.@qsrtech : While I appreciate you're frustrated by beta bugs and omissions, please keep some perspective.
The VB6>.net thing was a huge shift (some would say schism) - change of dialect, spotty compatibility, etc.
B4A 4.3>5.0 is a much, MUCH smaller change - evolution rather than revolution. I've found no dialect gaps or substantial compilation problems so far, and most of the big changes are in the IDE itself, bringing it up to date. Several little issues and omissions, most of which will be addressed quickly. In short, a BETA.
Looking at Erel's reply, it's clear he was irritated, but I don't see a personal attack in there. He suggested that your attitude was negative (which your throw-away comment was) and that you should not use the beta if you're not prepared for beta problems. I think that's fair enough.
+1Guys, this is a completely new IDE
