I'm overjoyed about the new features. I skipped the last couple of updates, so this is my first one in a while.

I think it is crashing on the following STRUCT:
procTime STRUCT

pName byte 4*12 dup(0)
count dword ?
bytes dword ?
ticks qword 0
ldword dword ?
hdword dword ?
procTime ENDS
...apon clicking on the project properties dropdown and
selecting Structs...(exit:no notice - just gone)

The effort you have put into this project serves as a great source of inspiration to me. Assembly has rarely seemed as managable or powerful. Thank you, bitRAKE.

p.s. Hopefully, the error above isn't due to my
manually editing my INI files.

Hi bitRAKE

I tried the struct on my XP and it seem to work ok.
The only wrong ini thing I can think of is these sections in masm.ini



A corrupted masmApiStruct.api file is also a possible cause.
I would expect the STRUCT keyword without a name might cause trouble. It would help a lot if I was able to make it happend on my system. Could you tell me a little more?

When I input Chinese commont or db definition,RadASM Crashed,it seems that RadASM has problem in processing Chinese infomation.

Uhhmm... Unicode issue ?

Hi pingyu

RadASM does not support unicode, and I am sorry but I doubt that it ever will. :(

"Remove from Project" doesn't seem to be working.

Hi Wayne

Yes you are right. Remove from project using context menu does not work anymore. Project menu still works. I will fix it.

Hi! KetilO :
It's a pity that your new RadASM still can not detect whether one instance is running

Posted on 2002-03-08 06:30:32 by dREAMtHEATER

Ok, Ok, you win.
I could have explained how to create a shell to do this, but it would probably take more time than putting the code lines into RadASM. Look at this thread in a few days.

Fixed known bugs.
Added single instance option.

KetilO, what is that RealRad plugin? Did I miss a post speaking of it here on boards? No readme.txt this time?

Keep it up, works like charm!

Hi Milos

Really RAD is an ambigous project. First part will be interaction between dialog editor and code editor. By selecting a menu item on the dialogs menu, clicking on a toolbar button or by dbl clicking on a dialog control will bring you to the code part that handles the event. It will also maintain the main .RC file for you, auto update dialog constants and so on.
Second part will start writeing event code. Auto add modules and so on. In short it will write code that you have written a 100 times before.

Hmm, sounds neat. Can't wait to see it work! This gonna be really rad :alright:

In short it will write code that you have written a 100 times before.

Auto Code writing (exept maybe optional filling some data values
and structs) is way to Rad but from asm.
KetilO, think really hard before starting it.
At least make it optional.

Hi Ketilo
One instance option maybe have bugs. when I associate RadASM with asm files, the first douleclicking asm file in explorer, RadASm can open it normally, the second douleclicking another asm file, it should open it in a new MDI window, but it failed, now you can detect one instance but cannot open more than one files with commandline.

Hi The Svin

I agree with you. I don't want the IDE to write anything in my code. I expect that I might change my mind about this if I can make really RAD work. It will save me a lot of time writing code I have written a 100 times before. Ofcourse everything will be optional. You can even remove the ReallyRad addin.

Posted on 2002-03-09 05:20:24 by KetilO

Hm. It does not work on XP. Try writeing a shell and tell me what you did to make it work. Here is the code you need.


MdiClassName db 'RadASMClass',0
hWnd dd 0
CommandLine dd 0


invoke GetCommandLine
mov CommandLine,eax
invoke FindWindow,addr MdiClassName,NULL
.if eax
mov hWnd,eax
invoke IsIconic,hWnd
.if eax
invoke ShowWindow,hWnd,SW_RESTORE
invoke SendMessage,hWnd,WM_USER+998,0,CommandLine
invoke ExitProcess,0

in this user defined message, some bugs must exist!

There is nothing wrong with the message. My guess is that on Win98 command line is in shared memory, on WinXP it is not.
Find a way to copy the command line to shared memory and it should work.
