Hello everyone, have just bought the Winter Bundle which includes DBPro. I haven't written anything in BASIC or Visual BASIC in donkey's years, the last time I did any programming was with C++ so I'm used to object-oriented programming.

Is it possible to use objects in DBPro..?

Haven't finished downloading it yet so don't know anything about it tbh

Unfortunately not.
You can mimic OO behaviour using either custom memory structures and accessor / mutator and creation / destruction functions that take / return pointers to these, or use dynamic arrays containing data of custom "types" (structs). It can be quite tedious to set up and maintain however; there are no built-in concepts like classes or objects, DBPro is entirely procedural by design.

Okay, thanks. That's a shame but not a big problem, thanks a lot!
