Re: Keyboard randomly (not)recognized by AmigaOS

@emulajavi

What OS version are you using?

I only get this problem with mouse and/or keyboard randomly not being detected on my Sam460 when I boot into my AmigaOS 4.1 update 6 installation. When I boot into the 4.1 Final Edition or beta installs then I don't get this problem.

Re: Outline Font OT_BaseLine data not found

@blmara I was wrong about OT_BaseLine. Apparently it is one of the tags which should be used with EObtainInfo(). Quoting from the <diskfont/diskfonttag.h> header: /* ? OT_BaseLine returns the ascender in the upper 16 bit * and the descender in the lower 16 bit so you can compute * the baseline faste...

Re: Outline Font OT_BaseLine data not found

I'm adding this here just in case if someone finds this thread via a search engine (like I just did). Rather than using tags to get outline font information, like OT_BaseLine, OT_IsFixed, OT_YSizeFacter, OT_SpaceWidth with EObtainInfo(), which won't work ever, these tags should be looked for in outl...

Re: Dynamically changing a label text

The label class is not really meant to be dynamic so you might have trouble implementing that approach.

A more common way of having text that can be changed in a GUI is to use a button.gadget that is set to be transparent and borderless (no bevel) and then update its GA_Text with SetGadgetAttrs().

Re: Tabbar on bottom?

@amifrog Can you provide an example when this would be actually wanted? To me it seems more logical/convenient to always have the tabs above the page group. I tried inputting "tabs on bottom" in google but it seems most of the results are regarding FireFox and AFAICT no one wants the tabs to be at t...

Re: What is the latest baseline OS4 SDK?

Thanx again! Checked the adtools readme. It states that a SDK-Assign is also needed. Can the SDK assign of the standard SDK installation be used here or will this conflict with the adtools stack? Yes, an existing SDK installation is expected and required. The commands I quoted are for moving the GC...

Re: What is the latest baseline OS4 SDK?

Ready compiled binaries can be downloaded from Aminet:

http://aminet.net/package/dev/gcc/adtools-8-os4

If you want to compile adtools gcc yourself you need to clone the adtools git repository and follow the instructions in the readme.

git clone https://github.com/sba1/adtools

Re: What is the latest baseline OS4 SDK?

Regarding the native AOS4 build of GCC and G++ - can it be just downloaded and installed over existing SDK installation? Instead of installing over the SDK gcc it's recommended to extract the adtools gcc in a directory of it's own, and then add something like the following to S:User-Startup after t...

Re: Shared Objects - Help needed

@Raziel Could you also output the value of &IDOS? IExec->DebugPrintF("&IDOS: %#p\n", &IDOS); This would say if something is just overwriting the value of IDOS or if it's being shadowed by another IDOS declaration, or there could be a problem with the relocation not working in this one instance(?).

Re: Background colour of text under icon

Apparently there is a MUI:PatchASL command in S:user-startup that you have to remove/comment out if you want to get the regular ASL requesters back.
