xx Help: examples won't work
« Thread started on: Nov 13th, 2017, 12:35am »

Namely
Then in Windows 10
opening HTML Help in Microsoft Edge (default Microsoft browser?)
examples copied from help pages
won't run.
It stops on first indented line with Syntax error.

What happens:
in Help systen, indents are made with NBSP symbol (non-breaking space).
Microsoft Edge put chr$(160) then copying to clipboard.
Just BASIC chokes on that symbol.
"Filter bad characters" does not help.

(looking in release notes of LB 4.5.1
Liberty BASIC v4.5.1 now released!
I see it fixed there:
Quote:
-Added a conversion of ASCII 160 to ASCII 32 when the Filter bad
characters option is turned on, in order to permit pasting of code
from some web sites.


Whoever uses Windows 10 please check.

(workarounds:
Open Help in Microsoft Internet explorer - works for me.

Suggested fix:
change "Filter bad characters" so it changes chr$(160) to space
make a highly visible note in a helpfile or on "welcome.bas"
(if examples don't work set this checkbox)
)

Q: "And if I took your codes and compile them, and sell them for a profit"?
A: Go ahead. I had my share of good then I coded it for fun, if you can make better use of it - please do.
