Tired of no styles on your darkbasic guis (made with bluegui or BBB-gui or any others) then here's the solution

some people may of seen my work with the USkin.dll well in that case you'll also know that it crashes dbpro on exit... well NO MORE!

I have wrapped it all up so there are no crashes.

screenshots







there are currently 5 commands, all are pretty much self explanatory.

please post any bugs

This will be awesome.

Although it seems to crash the program on start. Even the demo that was provided crashed, and this code:


I'm using Windows 7 32-bit, could be why?

Edit: Fixed, it was a problem on my end.

And also the example code included StartBlue with your username and password showing.

You did a good job. I will definitely get some use out this.

What was causing the crash upon exit before you fixed it? My Nerdy-Nature needs to know!

[EDIT]
Oh and very cool!

Well i have a graphics pad and for some unknown reason when i touched the pen to the pad then off again then try again and it worked. same things been happening with Bioshock Lately. I have yet to research this problem.

Oh and it wasn't on exit, it was on start.

maybe he was asking me what made the dll crash on exit meaning I ha to wrap it, and the answer is... I'm not really sure I'm guessing some memory allocated by USkin.dll was not released properly when you used the code.



So i'm not sure why it did, but I think i've fixed it now lol

and I reuploaded the project without my bluegui key in it.

I'm also can upload a version using BBB-gui cause I think that giu will be better then bluegui at some point (if not already).

Right i've made a newer version which really only effects one command, Skin end.
This command now has no parameters as it now collects what data it needs itself

I've also updated the keywords and made some help files.

Thas a bluegui command, you need bluegui to ompile the source code, but if you don't have bluegui, go to the demo->build folder and the .exe is already built so you can see it in action.

Nope, still no luck , i press f6(debug) the progress bar moves to 75% the debugger opens, but no program . If i try compile and run i get the error the dll was not found, but its in my plugins/user folder allright

Edit: more progress on this. i relised that when it said the dll was missing it was lookign for it under a diffrent name. renamed it and now it compiles but the .exe just crashes striaght away

to you have the USkin.dll (found in the build folder of the demo I did) along side where your building your exe.

My dll simply calls commands from the main USkin.dll and releases memory it uses.

I tried the program but it will not compile
it keeps going to Main.dba

I think it wants to be registered

StartBlue "USER", "KEY"

that's all I can guess what it wants

Start Blue is BlueGUI if u aint got it then its this dll is no use, unless u know how to add Windows API without BlueGUI -> I think there is a plug in some one is making for free like BlueGUI.

EDIT:

A link -> http://forumfiles.thegamecreators.com/download/1791547

Not sure if there is a Activation key tho.
