Here comes new version of Fresh.

This is mostly clean-up release. Some bugs were fixed. Most important changes are:

  • Fresh headers and macroinstructions are now completely compatible with those from FASMW distribution. Of course there are some additional macros (like iglobal/endg), but now you can compile any application that can be compiled with FASMW.
  • Due to extension of fasm core, two functions responsible for collecting symbol names and symbol values were combined into one. Now code is clearer, and compilation is a little faster.
  • Added small library for storing user preferences.

See Project History for details.

I think there is a bug in the Comment/Uncomment routines: if you use uncomment on a normal line it becames commented.
Is there a check on the first char if it's ';' or another one?

Proably it is not a bug but intended behaviour. But it shouldn't behave like this... so I will fix it Smile

LOL Laughing
As I always say "My code never has bugs, just random features!" Laughing

Hmm... Fresh is supporting code completion? Like, I type:
Quote:

invoke Mess

And it shows the tips:
Quote:

MessageBox
MessageBeep


I works with RADasm. I'd like to see it in Fresh, as it is the IDE for FASM.
I looked at a later version of Fresh, and I couldn't get the code completion to work.
I'm waiting for this feature.[/quote]

But it is not my code Wink

Code completion is already implemented. First you have to compile source, so symbols will be gathered. Then you can press ctrl+space and list of words will appear. As you type some letters, list will be updated according to what you wrote. For example you can type just "WS_", then press control+space, and list will appear with all symbols that begin with "WS_". Only case when cc list does appear automatically is when you type name of some structure and then press dot. After that you will see list of available structure members.

Ok. I downloaded latest version and seems very good.
I could get code completion to work, but do I need to compile before using it? Doesn't make sense to me, have to use the API before having the completion.
I typed this code for testing:
Code:
include '%finc%\win32ax.inc'

main:

invoke MessageBox,0,0,0,0

ret

.end main
    

And the completion for MessageBox API worked after compiling the code. But, other APIs will not show at the completion list.
Am I doing something wrong?
Also, I'm planning to use Fresh as source editor and seems very good. But for curiosity, will it become some kind of RAD tool? Is there some tutorial available on the "framework" used? How to handle events of buttons for example?
Or it's just a resource editor built-in and I have to handle the messages with WINAPI?

Thanks!

You have to compile your source first because Fresh has to "gather" all symbols declared there. It works this way because only then CC list will contain not only "standard" symbols but also your own. But I'm planning to make Fresh compile windows headers on startup, so at least API functions and constants will be available before first compilation. Soon this feature will be available Smile

That's because recent changes in symbol gathering proc. I didn't realize that now list doesn't contain unused symbols. So CC lists only functions that are used in your code (but all windows constants are available). I will fix it in next version.

Yes, this is in plans. Now you can create form and put some controls on it, edit their properties, etc. But using this form in an application is more difficult than in Delphi Wink. Actually, whole visual library has to be rewritten...

Here's a quick fix, after applying it all APIs will be available to code completion:
open imports32.inc file from include\macro\ directory, and then find line 42:
Code:
forward
    if used label
     if string eqtype ''
      label dd RVA _label
     else
      label dd 80000000h + string
     end if
    end if    


change it to:

Code:
forward
    if used label
     if string eqtype ''
      label dd RVA _label
     else
      label dd 80000000h + string
     end if
    else
      label = 0
    end if

Thanks!
I'll try it!

EDIT:
Works great!! Please add it to the official distribution!
Now it shows all API's. But it's still missing tips for the parameters.
Keep up good work!

This feature is planned Wink unfortunatelly I don't have time to do it right now, and I have to think carefully how should I implement it.

Unfortunatelly right now I don't have an access to computer with w98, so it would be nice if you could provide at least address of crash... thanks in advance.
Actually my computer is "grounded" too for about two weeks Sad

Hi,
Sorry but I missed your post before. Soon I will upload new release, and I will prepare version with breakpoint for you.
