View Full Version : HandiFast CODE Masters please help =)

Okay either one of you =)

Just finally began tackling learning Liberty Basic, and I know a few others on the board have dabbled...

Is there any chance.. (Only if it is not hard to do)

That we can have a simple CORE written in .bas to load up and begin with.

Like all it has to do is open a box, with a button, that asks for a .drf file, that loads it into arrays, then prints the race #, horses name, and last 3 speed figures, with the AWSOME ability to Sort them with a click.

And then anyone who was trying to learn Liberty could just start with that core and take it from there.

I would imagine that would help ME A TON, and many others but it is all up to you since this is now your baby, at 15 thousand lines of code it has well surpassed my ability ;)

Amazing to read through it however, and HANDI you did all of this under the weather, HOLY SH*T !

Let me know what you think... I hate to attempt to dismantle the code to do just a basic pull/print to screen/sort.

If so Thanks in advance.

Yes I'm sure it is, but....you have to promise me half your winnings the rest of your life. :lol:

I will see how fast I can get that done.

Your on, small price to pay for tuition like this ;)
Your code is amazing since I know what you had to work with !

I was embarrassed to post my jump into Liberty Basic (glad you broke the ice!!).:blush:

Handi did some piece of work and I am trying to wend my way through the 17,000 lines of code.

I'M WITH YOU on having just a "core" bit of code.

You could always look at the code for HHXv2.1. It's only about 3700 lines. :) It includes most of what Handifast v7 has except for the multi-track stuff.

Head... would love to , send it to me if you would.

I followed along on most of it until I hit the multi tracks.

It can keep me busy until handi has time to help out us NEWBIES, lol

Okay I give, no matter where I run liberty basic and load in any of the code, *.bas, I get Runtime Error: The specified module could not be found. (OS error 16r7E)

If you have the actual working copy of HHX v2.1 then put the .bas file in there and load it. Try loading it directly as well and don't assume that the file association will make it load into LB properly. HHX needs these files to be in the same directory as the basic code: lbbrowse3.dll, isfile32.dll, and datadir.ini. It's just best, I think, to simply run it from the HHX folder until you alter the code and eliminate those three files from what you're doing.

Let me know if it works.

I have uploaded a core program I wrote with fairly good comments. If you could move it to where anyone that wants it could download it, I'd appreciate it.

I'm pretty sure it is what you wanted.
