Phew, quick try of my own game source produced the following error...

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FOREACH w IN self.w[]
IF name$=w.text$[WB_NAME_STRING] THEN RETURN i%
INC i%
NEXT

"gui.gbas"(1685) error : GPC0007 wrong argument type on line...
Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FOREACH w IN self.w[]
Cheers,

Ian.

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
TYPE TX
    text$[]
ENDTYPE

TYPE TT
    w[] AS TX

    FUNCTION foo:
FOREACH w IN self.w[]
IF "x"=w.text$[0] THEN RETURN
NEXT
    ENDFUNCTION

ENDTYPE
This works for me, so can you make a short complete example that does not work?

I added... "LOCAL i%, w AS TX" to be more like my original source, it now reproduces the error standalone.

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
TYPE TX
    text$[]
ENDTYPE

TYPE TT
    w[] AS TX

    FUNCTION foo:
    LOCAL i%, w AS TX
FOREACH w IN self.w[]
IF "x"=w.text$[0] THEN RETURN
NEXT
    ENDFUNCTION

ENDTYPE


Also, I just pasted this to the end of the file for reference ...

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FUNCTION GetWidgetID%: name$
IF name$="" THEN RETURN -1
LOCAL i%, w AS TWidget
FOREACH w IN self.w[]
IF name$=w.text$[WB_NAME_STRING] THEN RETURN i%
INC i%
NEXT
RETURN -1
ENDFUNCTION

Highlighted the code and pressed CTRL+K to block remark it and the IDE crashed and exited to desktop. I Think it has something to do with the  final line not having a carriage return. I redid it again but made sure I pressed enter after the last line, then it didn't crash when I remarked it.
Cheers,

Ian.

Good find on the IDE. The compiler issue is harder. Can you redesign this piece of code, please  =D

I could.. but sometimes I reuse a variable within a block of code, so its not always viable to simply remove the declaration. eg. You will notice I've used the variable "m" twice here, on both occasions its a single type that represents a single material, so logically it makes sense. I could code around it with different variable names but isn't this coding around backwards compatibility?

Actually looking at my game code, I do this quite a lot unfortunately.  :'(

Gernot my opinion is this, this is just a "quality of life" improvement, my opinion is not to spend too much time on it if its causing you grief. By this stage I think every one had gotten used to self. anyways!  :good:

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FUNCTION ReadFile: filename$
LOCAL f%,l$
LOCAL n%,t$[]
LOCAL i%
LOCAL m AS TMaterial
self.Destroy()
self.SetUp()
f%=GENFILE()
OPENFILE(f%, filename$, TRUE)
//DEBUG "Start read TMaterials.ReadFile("+filename$+") file >\n"
REPEAT
READLINE f%, l$
n%=SPLITSTR(l$,t$[]," ")
IF LEN(t$[])=0 THEN CONTINUE
SELECT t$[0]
CASE "newmtl"
DIMPUSH self.m[], m
self.m[-1].name$=t$[1]
CASE "Kd"
self.m[-1].red# = t$[1]; self.m[-1].green# = t$[2]; self.m[-1].blue# = t$[3]
CASE "Tr"
self.m[-1].alpha# = t$[1]
CASE "Ns"
self.m[-1].size# = t$[1]
CASE "#"
DEFAULT
ENDSELECT
UNTIL ENDOFFILE(f%)
FOREACH m IN self.m[]
m.combined% = ASL((m.alpha#)*255,24)+ASL(m.blue#*255,16)+ASL(m.green#*255,8) + m.red#*255
NEXT
//DEBUG "< End read material file\n"
CLOSEFILE f%
ENDFUNCTION
Cheers,

Ian.

I changed the offending code in this routine...
Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FOREACH m IN self.m[]
m.combined% = ASL((m.alpha#)*255,24)+ASL(m.blue#*255,16)+ASL(m.green#*255,8) + m.red#*255
NEXT
to...
Code: (glbasic) [Select]
FOREACH mat IN self.m[]
mat.combined% = ASL((mat.alpha#)*255,24)+ASL(mat.blue#*255,16)+ASL(mat.green#*255,8) + mat.red#*255
NEXT

...but still got eh error "error : GPC0007 wrong argument type" at the FOREACH line, even though I changed "m" to "mat", only within these lines?!?!
Cheers,

Ian.

New improvements in IDE and language features are welcome, also nice to see some fixes for few bugs, yet from what I've checked that bug with loading images from ShoeBox wasn't fixed :/ I hope that this also will come in proper update ;-) I mentioned that bug here
Check my source code editor for GLBasic - link Update: 20.04.2020

Get the beta branch. The Shoebox bug is fixed. You need to recreate the SBX files, though.

Thanks for looking into it but there is still some issue, check my post in that bug topic.
In Logfile update list I saw that HTML5 platform was added, was it updated to latest emscripten or need some old version is still needed or something? As it was already in this topis there were serious issues with previously available version.

Qedo: find GLBasic on Your Steam Library list, right click - Properties - Betas and there select beta builds :-) from what I see standard version also was updated.
