Wow Charly, this is an old thread !

The work refered to is now in Lazarus 3.0 and Lazarus 3.0 is released. So, first of all, are you looking at Lazarus 3.0 ?

In the course of time, I have accumulated many components which I have stored for testing and also as an archive for possible components in programmes.
I therefore regularly search my archive for examples and demos to get an impression of the functionality of the respective component.

The Examples system is intended to be extensible. In your case, you could add entries referring to your private examples at the end of the ~/lazarus_3_0/examples/examples.txt file and add a simple meta file in each to achieve what I suspect you want. Probably best scripted.

Now that lazarus_3_0 and the new examples code has been released, I should update https://wiki.freepascal.org/Lazarus_Examples_Window - there is some good cricket on this afternoon/evening, I will update while I watch that !

Its also possible for packages (that can be added to the IDE) to list their own examples. So, if you add your own code as a set of packages, you could do that too.

All the example presented in lazarus_3_0 where checked to be functional and have, as a minium, a one liner description. But thats all I am afraid. Very many do have bugs (all software has bugs !) sometimes noted in the description. There is, as you mention, massive room for improvement!

Excellent !


--- Quote from: CharlyTango on January 25, 2024, 11:26:36 am ---Where should I report bugs?

- Listview - anchor right, +10 missing
- Listview, sorting does not work
- Listview, examples from OPM are not found (Win10, Laz3.0)

In the normal Lazarus bug report system. Its been my experience that a bug report that includes a patch is very well received. Focus on one issue per patch, test extensively, explain why its necessary and your contribution will be very welcome !
