Long promised BUIGen, aka Visual RFO BASIC, is here.
Is a graphical UI generator, NOT a code editor, although u can edit the code inside the app.
Just setup your device (in right side panel of main form), drop some controls on screen and click 'Generate' to see your BAS code. You may edit it, but beware, subsequent generatings-saves will overwrite your changes, except for the saved! 'user code'.
Click a tool button then click anywhere on 'screen' to place it;then drag it, scale it. Change other properties in left panel.
Event driven controls, like buttons, checkbox, up-down bars...
Code is generated for BOTH landscape and portrait modes automatically! So you don't have to bother writing code for both orientation! just adjust, on screen, the control positions for each, after dropping it. eg: if you drop a textbox in landscape mode in the right side of the device screen and then you 'click to gravity' for portrait mode, the textbox will 'magically' change position to the lower side of screen. See working example 'ORIENTATION.BUI' and the generated 'ORIENTATION_ALL.BAS' which contains NO human edited text. Run it on your tablet and see the objects repositioning when rotating the device.
The generated code has 3 parts. 1-graphic objects, 2-touch checks & orientation, 3-Main-user code-events to treat(touches). All can be saved separately or in one whole file.
Right click an object for more options (duplicate, delete, send to back...).
Here is not intended to be a manual, but I hope you will soon be able to use it without problems.
I am here for any questions.
Unzip the attached file anywhere u want and run the EXE.
