REALbasic 3.5b3

August 2, 2001

REALbasic 3.5b3 is another honest-to-goodness beta, and all that
implies. Betas represent the closing stages of a new release. At this
point, development focuses on fixing bugs, rather than adding new
features..

3.5b3 fixes issues with RbScript and the DataControl, in addition to
numerous other enhancements and bug-fixes. Finally, there's even more
in the release notes, so check it out.

3.5b3
[New] (All) DataControl: NewRecord method added, for future
considerations. Currently all it does is close the cursor and
clear all bound data aware controls.

[New] (All) RbScript: Dim statement now allows you to declare multiple
variables with differing types, rather than just multiple
variables of the same type.

[New] (All) RbScript: empty arrays can now be created by specifying -1
elements.

[New] (All) RbScript: functions can now be called before they are
defined.

[New] (Car) Microsoft Office Automation: Office X supported (plug-ins

[Chg] (IDE) Color Palette: Initial position of this window moved down so
as to not be partly obstructed by the toolbar in 3.5.

[Chg] (IDE) Properties Window: Initial position of this window moved
down so as to not be partly obstructed by the Menubar on Mac OS X.

[Opt] (IDE) Run or Build: compilation speed improved, especially on the
2nd or 3rd run after opening a project. (Those of you with large
projects, please give it a try!)

[Bug] (All) Binding: listbox text selection now changes when the
editfield text is changed when binding the string data of a
listbox with an editfield.

[Bug] (All) CheckBox: memory leak with the DataSource and the DataField
properties fixed.

properties fixed.

DataField properties fixed.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: Control blocks If..Then, Do..Loop, Select Case,

statements.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: data returned from a function with a typoed or
otherwise invalid return type no longer crashes.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: If, While, and Until conditions handle reference
variables properly.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: If, While, and Until no longer fail silently if
their conditions have an invalid type.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: line number and compiler errors were reversed in
CompilerError event call, rendering both values useless.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: Not and negation operators do proper type
checking; reference variables no longer generate bogus errors, but
non-numeric variables (for negation) do generate errors.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: ReDim no longer leaks memory.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: ReDim of a string array no longer crashes.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: return statements can now be used within control
statements.

error message.

[Bug] (All) RbScript: string arrays are no longer allocated with one

varchar field now works.

project browser viewable, when using a DataControl and selecting a
table. Previously it would report that a connection could not be
made.

[Bug] (IDE) Debugger: Stack Window -- Single-clicking in the Stack
Window makes it appear in front of the code browser.

[Bug] (IDE) Debugger: Stack Window -- Single-clicking in the Stack
Window will bring obscured code browsers forward if necessary so
that you can see their code.

[Bug] (IDE) Preferences: labels now properly deactivate when the window
is deactivated.

[Bug] (IDE) Project Window: Deleting a folder now refreshes the listbox
properly after the delete.

highlights the empty cell in a hierarchical listbox.

[Bug] (Win) Socket: establishing a new connection now works when called
in the Error Event of the socket.
