Thank you, it would have been a shame not to have this great package that can make a lot of difference regarding the look of your app.

Regarding it's gtk2 dependence, I would have thought that that would have been it's "foot of clay" but even today Slackware 15 delivers the first version (1.x) of gtk libraries alongside gtk2, 3 and 4. And as a tip, a pleasant way to use Slackware 15 is to install Salix 15 or Slackel 7.5 distros... So, the future of gtk2 looks good!

Congrats for the new release!  ;D
Tested with fpc-llvm 3.3.1. and works like charm ( WoW animations with -O4 on BGRABitmap/MSEgui apps).

I am glad GTK2 is still on.  :)

Well maybe LCL will catch up at some point.

Cool. Did you use the dev-bgrabitmap branch to overcome the compiler bug?

You're welcome  :)
I am glad to have some people contributing, I am less alone maintaining the package  :)

I used the zip file from release: https://github.com/bgrabitmap/bgrabitmap/releases/tag/v11.5.3

... to overcome the compiler bug?

Huh, what compiler bug?  :-\
I did test compiling with fpc-llvm 3.3.1 (from main last week) using this to build it : https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,61069.msg459333.html#msg459333
And no problems, all bgrabitmap anims + images are perfect.

Just tested now with fpc 3.2.2 and all ok too.

Ho, forgot to say that the tests where done on Debian 11, not yet on Windows.

[EDIT] OK, I see your patch for current bug in FPC with type helpers .
            Nice and thanks. (but I did not feel something wrong, maybe my code dont use it.)

bgrasvgimagelist unit (from dev-bgrabitmap) fails to compile with fpc-3.2.3...
The error messages are:
Quote
bgrasvgimagelist.pas(168,57) Error: Illegal qualifier
bgrasvgimagelist.pas(181,35) Error: Illegal qualifier
pointing to "i.ToString"


Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. procedure TBGRASVGImageList.Load(const XMLConf: TXMLConfig);
  2. var
  3.   i, j, index: integer;
  4. begin
  5.   try
  6.     FItems.Clear;
  7.     j := XMLConf.GetValue('Count', 0);
  8.     for i := 0 to j - 1 do
  9.     begin
  10.       index := FItems.Add(TStringList.Create);
  11.       FItems[index].Text := XMLConf.GetValue('Item' + i.ToString + '/SVG', '');
  12.     end;
  13.   finally
  14.   end;
  15. end;
  16.  
  17. procedure TBGRASVGImageList.Save(const XMLConf: TXMLConfig);
  18. var
  19.   i: integer;
  20. begin
  21.   try
  22.     XMLConf.SetValue('Count', FItems.Count);
  23.     for i := 0 to FItems.Count - 1 do
  24.       XMLConf.SetValue('Item' + i.ToString + '/SVG', FItems[i].Text);
  25.   finally
  26.   end;
  27. end;
  28.  

Lazarus stopped compiling, don't know if there are more files affected... I looked at the repository and saw that only previously reported file has been patched... that means that the BGRABitmap has not been fully tested yet with 3.2.3 or 3.3.1 versions?

bgrasvgimagelist.pas is rather in dev-bgracontrols.

The error is similar, a regression from the compiler regarding type helpers.

You can replace "i.ToString" by "IntToStr(i)". Does it fix the problem?

Not sure about BGRAControls, but personally I use stable FPC.

Using the development branch of FPC can cause some strange errors like this one.

When I do bgracontrols I use stable FPC too.

So, these fixes will be unnecessary when  the development version will be fixed? Well, I'm not so much into 3.3.1 fpc as I am into 3.2.3-fixes... Still, don't want to have a Frankenstein BGRABitmap version, I'll stick with the stable version for now. Thank you!

Exactly. BGRABitmap was and is one of the best libraries I worked with.
