[SOLVED] {$APPTYPE CONSOLE} {$APPTYPE GUI} please where to set?
« on: November 24, 2022, 03:54:47 pm »
Hello community,

I do code on/for Windows Operating System using Lazarus/FPC/WidgetSet for Windows.

Where can I enable that Lazarus does apply {$APPTYPE CONSOLE} or {$APPTYPE GUI} to the .lpr file please?
Whenever I do say "Create a new project" I would want to have that in my .lpr file added.
Are there templates I can edit?
Please help a beginner.

You should do that in the lpr file - on the top - or in the Lazarus IDE indeed.
When you encounter a console application example by me and others that often reads like this:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. {$ifdef mswindows}{$define apptype console}{$endif}
This is only necessary for the Windows platform.
What happens is that it links in support to read and write to/from the console, so error 103 will not be triggered.
OTOH you can also define {$apptype gui} which means that the console support code is skipped.
On many supported OS's this is not an issue, but for windows it is.

Manuals, manuals, manuals first.
You have incompetence and sheer incompetence.

Thanks for your reply.
My question still is, where can I enable an option that Lazarus add this automatic for me without need to check/edit the .lpr afterwards.
Or where does Lazarus take the clean/empty template from so I add those line within to never need to think about it anymore please.

When you encounter a console application example by me and others that often reads like this:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. {$ifdef mswindows}{$define apptype console}{$endif}
it should be like this to work
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. {$ifdef mswindows}{$apptype console}{$endif}

file | new | simple program
but there are at least two more options I am aware of. (but note I do not use Lazarus very much, since my code is centered around networks and do not need a GUI, except for control)
Manuals, manuals, manuals first.

Maybe I express myself not that clear enough.

In attachment you do see a picture.

Now my question is, where does Lazarus take the template from when I do press the [OK] button?

Your text about what it does = I do know.
Your text about where it belong to = I do know.
A text about how I can have it automatic = I do miss.

I give up. Even when I show a picture of where I would like to modify something I get answers that not lead in the direction that I need.
I read your link and I do understand like nothing since I never have done such, really, all I want to do is to edit the original thing that I showed on Picture, nothing more nothing less.
I closed now this thread since I can not express myself more clearly.
Thanks.

$lazarusdir/ide/projectdescriptortypes.pas

The projtemplates package is to add your own templates using simple description files. Some other packages also add additional project templates using code like the core templates do.

Maybe you can file a feature request in the bugtracker to add {$apptype console} to TProjectSimpleProgramDescriptor.InitProject and TProjectProgramDescriptor.InitProject in $lazarusdir/ide/projectdescriptortypes.pas.

Or maybe (if possible) disable -WG switch there.

I agree with you that is is annoying that by default a console project on Windows is compiled with -WG

I tried my best up to the point where I finally gave up. ( Watch image, thats how it ended for me  >:D )
Anyway, in attachment is my patched version that does do what I tried to achieve.
Thank you PascalDragon for leading me where I wanted to go!
Thank you Bart for tell what I needed to do after that!
Thank you Thaddy and itblumi for trying to help!
