Hi Mol & friends:

About some topics you mention, like tree control with the chance of look like a grid, it's possible on other GUI libraries but surelly not with hmg.- I've seen that on BCG treectrl. The same happends with grids control that not only let's you manage multiline headers, multiline rows, merger rows, include graphics (like pie) on a specific group of cells, and much more.-
Although these full capabilities, for me grid control must be used as a small directory of database regs. For editing or performing a deep manage of data, a good screen with the apropiate controls works better and without the slow motion that happends when you use a big numbre of col (also under virtual grid that is the fastest control).-
Said this, some behaviour of BCG grid control can be emulated to look and work on that GUI.-
Another consideration you must take is that BCG is a GUI that runs under C++ (version 6 or more), and requieres deep knowledge of C++, which means beguin from zero.-
With regards.
Eduardo

I have no time to start from 0 :-D I'm 50thy :D:D:D
With big help of Edward I've realized my project with dragging items from tree to textboxes.
I can build multiline header for my MiniGrid control, which I was presented here two years Ago.
But, I think, multiline text headers are basic request and we should try to do it.
Few years ago Grigori Filatov prepared TsBrowse to be HMG usable. Maybe this control could be adopted to HMG to give us another choice to browse tables, dbf's etc.

But now, without any leader, our HMG will die :cry:

I think Grigory is doing good work of implementing latest features like 'Switcher' and also releasing updates periodically of HMG Extended version. Only difference I see is that HMG supports Unicode.

So we can request him to take HMG forward.

There's another inconvenient...
HMG extended uses the obsolete Borland C compiler as default.
This kind of silly tiny differences and selfish postures is what's been killing our beloved xbase languaje.
Harbour compiler itself has been abandoned by the leaders. And nobody is willing to fork it, and develop it further.
Division, division, division... till death.
I know everyone has it's own reasons to act like they do.
But that won't avoid the extintion of the languaje.
A divided community is a dead one !
Just a bunch of individualitues.
And we are merely mortals.
Big corporations have won !

Hi Apais:

Sorry but your arguments ar too pesimist, so i can't agree with them.-
First, i don't think in this forums are divisions.-
If what you mean is the need of a "leader" or "comander" to continue growing HMG, i must remember you that Mr Rathinagiri is not only the moderator, he is today the voice, and as he said some time ago, is working on a new version (he ask all member about what they consider must be includes).- Although there are not regular upgrades, meanwhile our systems works with full stability.- I don't think corporations have win.-
Perhaps you are right about Borland, but if any app we develope runs well under XP to Win 10 (32 or 64 bit), Borland C compiler is really a vintage compiler ???????
Most of us becomes from languages like Clipper, CA Visual Object, or similar, languages that let developers create app that till works well.- These doesn't mean that we must rest.- In my case since last 3 years i invest lots of hours creating app that looks and works like newest Office or .NET app.- It's not easy but is possible.-
The effort and generosity of lots of members remains HMG alive.- This behaviour must ever been recognized.-
As is said more than one time in HMG the only limit is our imagination.- So i allways see the glass half full, never half empty or full empty.-
Please forgive me. It's just an opinion.-
With regards.
Eduardo

I think Ratnagiri Sir can give more insight of the status of our new HMG version, he was working on.
