Hi firace,

I wanted to take a closer look at SWV, and to test whether I'd be able to create the GUI of my current project with it.

I downloaded the ZIP archive about half an hour ago. When executing SWV_Demo1.exe (or SWV_Demo1.pb with PB 5.72), I get the following error message:
Quote:
Note: This is a temporary demo version of the SWV library and expires after 21 days.
and then the program quits.

So it seems to be expired already. Maybe you can provide a recent version of SWV that we can use for testing?

Hi Little John,
I have just posted an updated demo. Feel free to try again, and let me know if you have any questions. :)

I'm also interested but need cross platform (Win/Lin/Mac). So this does not apply, right? I do daily work on Linux (OpenSUSE). So I can't test :cry:

Hi,

I'm not able to run the DEMO at all.
If i start the SWV_Demo1.exe, e message shows that this is a demo and will only run for the next 21 days.

If i try the code in PB, with x64 version of PB, i get a memory exception in line
Code:
SWV_New (0, 0, 0, 990, 480,  main_UI_filepath$, WindowID(0


If i try it with x86 version of PV, i get a memory exception in line
Code:
e = WaitWindowEvent()


So the 21 days are from the date where you created the DEMO or for the first use per user?

May be you can upload a new demo?

Thank you

@Nicolaus

Thank you for trying it. The demo DLL is valid for 3 weeks from its compilation date. I have just posted a new version that you can try. Note that only a 32-bit version is available right now. I can make a 64-bit version if needed. Don’t hesitate let me know if you encounter any further issues or have suggestions for new features.

An updated screenshot of a modern window example:

Keep in mind, SWV provides the core modern window infrastructure, but does not cover the design and management of HTML UI controls.

If this scares you and you prefer to reuse your existing UI work and save yourself the time/hassle of revamping the entire interface of your programs, you can use the new hybrid mode, allowing to use classic PB gadgets in a modern window frame:

Note: SWV is based on the Trident rendering engine, which is extremely lightweight, does its job very well for most UI purposes, and is present by default on all Windows versions. But if there are enough interested users to support a Chromium-based version, I will definitely work on it!

Sorry, Windows only for now.

Played around with hybrid mode and created my first "win10-looking" PB app!
Thanks for the great library (and one-on-one support).
Very impressed by the small binary size.
