Subject: New UI for Windows - The word is out...
From: BlueChip (cs_bluechip_at_webtribe.net)
Date: 2004-07-21


<midk> actually, i tried bc's sim patch with his devkit and it didn't compile..
<LinusN> it's outdated
<midk> no, his newer one on his site
<midk> /bin/ld: cannot find -lcomdlg32
<midk> collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
<midk> make[1]: *** [/home/guest/rockbox-devel/build/uisw32.exe] Error 1
<LinusN> i think i'll merge some of his changes into CVS
...
<LinusN> missing comdlg32 library...
<LinusN> i wonder why he needs that
<Kaboofa> because HE'S AN EVIL WITCH!!!!

Well it seems the word is out.

I had not mentioned it yet because I found a bug in it a couple of nights
back and I have not had a chance to fix it yet.

If you exit the _new_ Win32Sim when the screen is displayed in
true-aspect-ratio, the screen is displayed as a teeny weeny window when you
start it up next.

The solution? Erase the uisw32.cfg file, and re-run -OR- run the sim,
press [PgDn] and exit (the cfg file will be updated)

The reason? The startup code does not understand zoom=(-N) ...which is the
true-aspect-ratio marker. (note: zoom=(+N) works just fine.)

Knowing that, anyone wishing to play with this version should read the
below reply addressed to MK, and venture forth to
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cyborgsystems for the update.

All the hype about the big-fat-pile of new features is included in the
CS_UIsim.zip file, along with programmers notes, and updated source files.

***
MK, Did you put the libcomdlg32.a file from the zip into the right
directory? (see programmers notes at the end of the manual)

I must also offer a rather embarrased apology that I have used a "*" to
denote a comment at the top of the makefile, where I should have used a #

Although why it has been compiling on my machine is anybodies guess.

In the mean time, either erase my version history addendum, or replace the
* with a #

Whoops.

***
Linus,
8-O
...and...
Because I added a feature to select whatever colour you like for your sim
...I call the standard windows colour dialogue box.

To pre-emp any generic "why" (from whoever) I must first quote George
Mallory: "Because it was there" and as a caveat, add: "I wanted to try my
hand at windows programming, cos I've never done it before."

***
Kaboofa,
LMAO ...Fear not, I have not moved to the Dark Side (Windoze programming)
...Just "dabbled" out of interest ;)

BC
