Hello all! You can now all enjoy this console dll I made. It's very basic, but it should work fine!

So, enjoy!

(The console is the little MS DOS thing)

This sort of DLL is useful for debugging, btw.

Does it work in Full Screen Exclusive mode? That's what my project is currently in...

I'm not a real programmer but I play one with DBPro!

@tiresius

Im afraid I have only tested this in the following resolutions:

- windowed
- fullscreen desktop
- fullscreen desktop + taskbar

As for the fullscreen exclusive part, I doubt it will work because exclusive means that only the dbp window will be rendered. There are other options though, now that I have my computer I can throw together a DLL in maybe 5 minutes that will automatically switch from whatever screen mode your in, into some other mode, for example, fullscreen desktop + taskbar.. Hmmm.....


Anyways, it's not that big of a download if you would like to test it out. I'm working on several other DLLs at the moment as well.


@everyone
I am working on several other DLLs at the moment as well. One of which is a Windows Genuine GUI DLL (Win32 GUI), another is a special memory management DLL which is basically just some dynamic memblocks, except, DBP can't use it's own memblock functions on these ones.

All of these will be free. And are practically done.


Also, take a look at my Dev-C++ DBP Plugin Template. In the program announcements, if not there, it's being added right now.

So enjoy.

Erm... what does this do? Allow you to run things from a command prompt window? Capture the output from command line programs? Send the output of DBPro to a command window?

Well, a console is basically the same thing that you get when you run cmd.exe (MS DOS Prompt), except, you have the ability to write text, etc, to that console window, the user can't use it though.

Im not sure if that makes sense or not. Take a look at this screenshot though (attatched). Its from a project im working on.

This looks very helpful! In the JustBASIC language, it has a 'main console window' that you can use, which is very similar to this. It's helpful in that you can display program information without needing to show it in the program window itself. Very useful for debugging and such. Many thanks DB User!!!

Glad you like it!

I am making several other free dlls that dbp needs, or at least "wants."

see, i knew this would be usefull.

I am sorry though. I seemed to have forgotten to make a documentation. Ill do that later though, currently, the .INI file briefly explains what commands do.

Now I see. What confused me was your references to the command prompt (DOS) window. I was expecting some interactions with the DOS prompt. I see now its a text window that displays plain text - like a read only terminal window.

I can see how this would be useful. Nice.

Well, actually, there is a read command for it. However it's untested and meant to read from the window.

Actually, I think I can get interactions to work too. Also, you can color the text, and set the title.

How can you make that each line starts in a new row?? When I add (chr$(10)+chr$(13)) at the end of each line it just simply crashes!

It only crashes, in my knowledge, if you havent initialized the console. And, if you continuously write text to the console, ex, write to the console in a loop.

Sorry for your problems, and I hope this can be of some help.

Cheers,

Ok. I have made a support center for the console dll, at my forums. Any questions for it, go ahead and ask it there, it may help other people because the posts will be more organized.

View it here


Cheers,
