Thread: A VB tool is now open-sourced, we need your participation.

  1. #1
    C Labitan Guest

    A VB tool is now open-sourced, we need your participation.

    In order to accelerate VB and intentional programming in Visual Basic,
    William Rawls has generously opened up his source code for the greater good
    of all developers.

    Slice and Dice (Sandy for short) is now open-sourced.

    Sandy is an advanced addin for VB/VBA that is a template-based: code
    generator, code librarian, form creator, control modifier, coding task
    automator, coding macro language, database creator, and database to
    code/form/object generator all rolled into one. The templates are 100%
    flexible allowing you to create your code your way. This is an invitation to
    review the following: http://willrawls.ewebcity.com/coreTeam/default.asp

    Add your own macro commands, create your own templates. If you wish to join
    us in advancing this tool, come to:

    Well, I love it when people open-source their work. Unfortunately, even
    after a couple of hours of playing around with it, I can't get this to work.

    The first problem was that the add-in apparently attempts to contact Rawls'
    machine for registration...unfortunately, Rawls has put security on his
    machine so you need a username/password to access anything, including the
    ASP registration. Tinkering around with the reg program revealed that it'll
    work just fine if you don't have an internet connection open (or just skip a
    couple lines of code). Fine.

    The second problem related to the templates themselves; trying to use the
    vast majority of them brought up the error 'Can't find the 'Basic - Timer
    Template' to insert.' (or words to that effect; it's the error msg on line
    660 of frmMain). Checking the MDB file reveals that the specified template
    does, in fact, exist. Debugging of the code was made difficult by the fact
    that the source doesn't seem to match the binary version; CAssocArray and
    CAssocArrays are both MultiUse in the binary, but are flagged as
    PublicNotCreatable in the project. Easily dealt with. A bigger sticking
    point comes with CAssocItem; CAssocArray makes many references to the 'F'
    function of this class (CurItem.F(iCol, FieldDelimiter))...however,
    CAssocItem doesn't have any functions, just two properties (Key and Value).
    This one's got me a little bit more stumped.

    Colin,

    Initially, I encountered the same problems.
    Then, I commented out 3 lines and got it running fine.

    If you wish to join our working group, write to
    William at wrawls@firmsolutions.com and tell him
    you are interested in contributing ideas to the project.
    He will get you lined up with the latest working versions.

    Phil,
    Try again. The site was down temporarily.
    It was up again just a few minutes ago.
