long time no blog entry… too busy over all work.. house.. family too much to do besides programming.
Some days before some guys asked me to bring the aros fpc into the official Sources. So I created a Patch and announced at mailing list, then Charlie and Florian contacted me and I got an own branch for aros. First aros will be implemented, then checked (I guess by Charlie?) and finally, hopefully come to main trunk. After it, it would be a very good idea to bring the 3 Amiga Systems together (AROS, MorphOS and AmigaOS) Charlie did the implementation for MorphOS, I did Aros… so there should be enough knowledge to bring it together to a much smaller codebase.
Besides this today I checked a little bit about bug reports/wishes… first is rather strange… when you open a Modal requester the Windows behind should be disabled/not click-able… and Aros „shows“ also so.. so if you try to click a Button it shows no click animation. But after closing the modal requester all your clicks done meanwhile the requester was open will fire one after the other…. very bad! … the MUIA_Application_Sleep let the application and all windows sleep.. and shows a Busy pointer… but even here you can still click the button… So now I took the hard way…. I just deactivate all Windows before show the requester.. then it really works.. its just slower because the window must be redrawn.
The second thing is the OnChange Event in the TMemo now always fired when there is a text change done. This was again a rather easy thing… ok also needed long time.. but just because I forget to set the Hook-procedure to stdcall… seems too long I didn’t care about Events.
