    Can we add a new section for just Tutorials, I want to start maybe posting some and I don't want to post then in the normal section as they will just get lost.

    I'm a little late to the party here - but that's a really good idea. I too would like to see this.
    So I'm renewing (and seconding) Rex's request.

          Thanks for this, but my other issue is setting a Grid cell to 'Blank', empty cell

              well. . I guess IR are not kean on the idea unfortunately. I actually think they would much prefer we go elsewhere tbh and let AMS alone.At least that's the feeling I personally get.

              I would recommend looking at Purebasic if you are kean to go further with any serious projects.

              I have dabbled in it for around a month now and it appears to have the power and ability to address all and more of the issues that I have struggled with using AMS.

              and for something like $100 with lifetime updates.. tiny Binary sizes (file protection) and a still thriving community / support which is kinda what we need?

              also has the ability to compile for 3 different OS's Win/Mac/Linux as well.

              anyhow.. I guess what I am saying is that it is the general direction that i personally am headding and I wish you all the best here.

              Cheers.

                if you're a Mohican or the last thereof.. you can actually setup a free blog for your tutorials if you are kean to share your experiences.

                actually just googled free forums and this popped up
                https://www.proboards.com/

                maybe something to look into ?

                  Running our own forums and blogs we did in the past but all of us here have busy lifes so most of the time things got in the way, look around on here you see I done it a few times, but it's not that free, time is not free this day and age lol

                  I wont work away from AMS I can still do very serious projects with it without a problem nor the real need of the forum my post was to give back to AMS, I still post tutorals here done a few already.

                    Fair enough Maybe if I get a chance I'll look into it if there's an interest ofc.

                    in terms of Tutorials (here) perhaps just mark the thread title [TUTORIAL] *Brief Title here.

                    I have a few ideas off the top of my head which maybe helpful to new comers and some older users ;

                    GRIDS building manipulating parsing information
                    Tables and data
                    windows , object placement and resizing / positioning of objects.
                    sounds channels and basic animations.

                    whatever..

                    remember you have resources available such as OBS Studio for recording of video and uploading to YouTube which is invaluable.

                    link back to here and link to YouTube from here via your signature. . also your discord channel.

                      Pure Basic, yeah. I've still got a little app which Riz made with Pure Basic from way back when. It's called, Bloat File Maker (which creates dummy files for obsfucation purposes in one's project distros). LOL, love that little app. Still have one that IP made with Pure Basic, too. That's one's called Pretty Printer (which I think IP even still has up on his website).

                      Yeah for sure, PB is a great R.A.D. suite. I had a poke around in it myself after Riz posted his tutorial on creating DLLS with PB, some years back. Personally, I found it hard to get my head around. But that's probably just me - didn't really have the required patience to learn the new concepts (and far too right-brain dominant for the intense logic required). I think though for anyone who's predominantly left-brained, it's a good option. And yep, the multi-platform output options are an absolute boon.

                        BioHazard indeed I think the Explorer plug-ins Rizla built in PB as well. do you have link to his Plugin builder tutorial please?

                        some resources to get you refreshed in pb.

                        note that's it's free to use for upto 800 lines of code with just about everything functional (i believe).

                        you can do alot with 800 lines don't be dismayed lol.
                        once installed there are an abundance of samples showing a wide range of functions.

                        here is the current refference manual.

                        https://www.google.com/url?q=http://.../PureBasic.pdf

                        current is important because there's alot of code for previous versions which need to be modified to work in 5.6 however you can google and download several versions from version 3 and 4 as well which could assist in this process. not sure if when you subscribe if you get access to all previous builds hmm be interesting.

                        another resource here:

                        http://www.ninelizards.com/purebasic/purebasic%2001.htm

                        remember learning PB is like every other language and yes it has some weird ways of functioning but you can easily pick it up with a little persistence.

                        also it can be used along side AMS as another tool in the basket not just as a replacement. Ie: for securing your apps or doing multithreaded functions for tasks which AMS struggles with.

                        also can be used to make games and so forth which is another bonus kingzooly

                        anyway there's a bit of an insight into it. here's a little Guide sample I found on YouTube to show how to build a simple calculator in around 10mins test.

                        https://youtu.be/Y9Mdt93F6Q4

                        cheers.

                          No, not for plugin building - never went down that particular rabbit-hole. I was actually referring to an old tutorial of Riz's for building a DLL in PB which could be called from AMS. Was just a very basic intro to PB for beginners. Here's the thread I was referring to: https://forums.indigorose.com/forum/...-for-ams-in-pb

                          PB was still in version-4 when I last looked into it. Still have all the old install-packages, etc. But you've stirred my curiousity (LOL. curious1 stirs my curiousity) about it again - so will probably take another look. Dammit, I'm getting hooked on coding again! You're a bad influence on me!

                              I looked in to PB a while back Riz and IP both said give it a look, I tried to see how it was and we just didn't get alone lol but using other tools like PB and other ones like that does make AMS better only plugin I want is a opensource mozilla based brower elament what is able to trigger all ams functions so we can create HTML file UI's and JS apps what are fully inergreaed with lua/ams
