This has really opened up VB6 for me. 9 copy and paste buffers, easy-to-follow statement linking, more organised and useful UI, automatic formatting, dead code searches, advanced find+replace...

I could go on. Just check out the website and give it a try. It really does open it up for you, and make developing a lot easier and can avoid any future problems, such as when I frequently find myself counting ifs and end ifs looking for breaks.

You've got nothing to lose!

Yeah, really does make a big difference. It's like finding NetBeans all over again xD

Fuck knows, I'm a complete JAVA newbie. This doesn't effect your coding at all, IDE or RTE.

This looks awesome, netbeans is a curse though, someone used it for a few things at work and you end up just re-writing everything it does properly because the code it splurts out is disgusting and un-usable.

Well so far I've only used it because it had a GUI editor, and I got fucking sick of my buttons being spread around the edge of the form ><

Can you suggest anything better to use for a GUI maker?

So say that someone wishes to have the full features of this wonderful software, yet for some reason can't seem to make it to their purchasing page. :roll: And also say that a place like The Pirate Bay doesn't have a small text file with information about said software. where might one go to acquire said information?

Does anyone else notice if CodeSMART causes slowdown at all? I'm trying to figure out why all of a sudden my client is lagging like hell, and I've done nothing that I know of other then install codesmart and add a new skin to my XP.

EDIT: nevermind, seems something is up with my skins.

You can always use the control GUI editors from other languages, like the C# or VB.NET one, then just copy over the locations. Not too convenient, I know, but it does get the job done pretty well. Its how I design all my in-game GUIs that are not control based.

Once you get you're head around panels and things it gets a lot easier, its not as difficult as rendering an interface so it should be a piece of cake for you ^.^

I don't see why your game would lag at all just because of this addon to VB. Nothing from this addon is actually saved onto the exe game file. As far as I've seen it.

Love the buffer thing :) It will be very handy. Great found Robin and james!

no, it's some setting in windows messing it up, something to do with rendering because it happens here and there with my windowblinds skin. not sure how to isolate the problem.
