About Window

About Window, similar to the Linux About Dialog (but not just for Linux)


drop aboutWin.xojo_binary_window to the project and call it this way

 aboutWin.showAboutWin( _
  "made with Xojo" + EndOfLine + "©2016", _
  "https://xojo.com", _
  "Mick Xojo (Director)" + EndOfLine + "Keith Xojo (Slave)" + EndOfLine + "Donald Duck (Fun)")

Works great!

Thank You :smiley:

Does ShowURL not do anything on Linux?

you’re right, I’ve changed lblLink.MouseUp to


added it to the Linux Declares

Two suggestions:

  1. Change aboutWin type to Movable modal to avoid launched in maximize state on Tiling Window Manager.
  2. add me.MouseCursor = System.Cursors.FingerPointer and me.MouseCursor = System.Cursors.StandardPointer to lblLink.MouseEnter and lblLink.MouseExit respectively.

That can change everyone as he needs it.

added PushButton with Icons (using stock_id)
added TextField with Icon (using stock_id), fine for a Searchfield

You don’t need to go to all this trouble. Just set the mousecursor property for the control and it will do this for you.

added Declares for Slider

  • show Slider Value
  • Sider Value String Position (left, right, top or bottom)
  • set Markups (with Postion (left, right, top or bottom))
