splashabout component
« on: January 23, 2020, 09:19:18 pm »
Hi,

Complete newbie here.

trying to create first app with splashform.

There's 2 components I can see which do this..

1. splashform https://wiki.freepascal.org/SplashAbout#Installation
2. powered by

When I download splashabout and open/compile the lpk file i get following errors

Quote

I'm using manjaro linux 64bit, but compatibility doesn't seem to include 64 bit linux

Compatability

    Lazarus 0.9x/1.x/fpc 2.x
    Windows and Linux
    Tested on Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit builds) and Linux 32-bit

How do I resolve this or any other way to have a splash form.

Thanks

What version of Free Pascal and Lazarus are you using?

I have never tried it, but there is some discussion of a similar issue here:

Isn't there a "Remove" button in the title above your own posts at the right? If not you could click "Report to moderator"; I use this normally to report spam, but there will be a comment field where you can specifiy "double post".
Mainly Lazarus trunk / fpc 3.2.0 / all 32-bit on Win-10, but many more...

Yes, I can. But I know for sure what can't be removed is the first post of a thread. Or maybe new forum users need to reach higher level to be able to remove a post.
