GLBasic, not for games
« on: 2011-Apr-30 »
Hello everyone,
I want to write a program (especially for smartphone) management training for runners , and then I also manage the data base even if very simple, tables and graphic.
My question is: is GLBasic  a programming language suitable for this purpose?
Thank you

If you post a more detailed list of features, requirements and functionality, I'm sure it would be much easier to give you an answer as to how easy/hard it would be to make in GLBaisc. :)

As I said I would use the database as well as use of tables and charts as excel, see picture ..

Even though GLBasic is great, it's really not very well suited for your kind of application.
For your style of application, I wold rather recommend Titanium Appcellerator or PhoneGap as both of them already got all the functionality you need.

Well, you can do that easily, I think.
If you want the graphics on the screen, it's possible. Either just draw them with the text functions, or use some higher level GUI like DDgui or the Tcl/Tk wrapper. I personally would just write out a HTML page for printing and include a pie graphic that was created with GLBasic (SAVESPRITE as PNG).
