p/s: Sorry, I'm rude again.

p/s: Sorry for being rude.

I would rather quit.
Being patient is a virtue.
Being rude doesn't help and it's considered as a moral harassment in a paid environment and as a valid social exclusion reason on a voluntary environment...
Please, be more careful with your needs, feelings and words.

At least I'm sure with you that I don't want to be rude.

Hello.

Sorry mr.coll for the confusion.

There are 2 fpGUI flavors: the "pure fpGUI" and the "LCL/fpGUI".

The "LCL/fpGUI" uses the LCL developed by the Lazarus team that uses the fpGUI widgetset, like it does with other widgetset (GTK, Qt, Carbon, ...).

This "LCL/fpGUI" is in development but not yet operational, some widgets are not yet working (Tfpg_label for example).

"LCL/fpGUI" is provided in Lazarus source, but, IMHO, not already ready to use.

But, a contrario, the "Pure fpGUI" version is perfectly working and easy to use.
And with "Pure fpGUI" you will have lighter, faster, stronger executables, without any dependencies.

All the infos that I give you in previous posts are about "Pure fpGUI".

Fre;D

So I have to code pure fpgui by hand? Is there any form designer?
Designer in "/fpGUI/uidesigner/" folder

fpGUI has his own designer, you have to compile it first (there is a Lazarus lpi file included):
https://github.com/graemeg/fpGUI/blob/maint/uidesigner/uidesigner.lpi

You may also use uidesigner_ext that is a extended version of official fpGUI-designer.

It has many other options and features.
Here compiled releases ready to use for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD:
https://github.com/fredvs/uidesigner_ext/releases

You may take a look at Eschecs project, by Roland Chastain, it is done using fpGUI, BGrabitmap and uos:

I use Lazarus 2.0.6 32/64 and FPC 3.2.0 32/64 on Debian 10.2 64 bit, Windows 10, Windows 7 32/64, Windows XP 32,  FreeBSD 64 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 32.
Widgetset: fpGUI, MSEgui, Win32, GTK2, Qt, Carbon.

Thanks for sharing (here's a screenshot of the fpGUI's compiled designer, to create X11 \ X.org compatible windows - among others - in a RAD way; and I saw that in the sources, there are also dialog boxes, a TfpgFieldDataLink, ...).
