Thats the latest published binary of the framework. Thats right.


but.. the framework source has v151 already.. why is it not reflected on the wiki?
Because sometimes I make only little changes, where I think, that it makes no sense to upload it direct as binary. Then it will be in the next binary, if enough or bigger changes are add up.

For example the last changes have only added the non-color -1 for some controls. But I have still not added it for all controls, so I thoughted, it would be to early to publish it as binary.
But because you asks for it, I have now added Form_Upload() witch cancel for you
[…g.html#post4460 ]
and uploaded the Jabaco Framework as binary on the wiki you mentioned.

The Barcode-example at
[ ]
makes as first program use of the non-color -1.
Happily the Barcode-program uses only controls, for which non-color existing.
If you using a control for which the non-color don't exist or running the new Barcode program with an older JabacoFramework, all controls are on ForeColor and BackColor in red.

If you use the non-colors on Windows with the system LookAndFeel, you see no difference to before,
If you running compiled programs with the non-color on other Operating Systems (like Linux), then they looks before ugly and with the non-color nice.
On Windows you can for example see the difference, if you click in the IDE on the right side in the tree on the root-node called "Project" and then writing in the "Properties"-section behind "JVM Options" the text "-Dswing.systemlaf=javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel".
You see it then for example on the buttons. But as I said before: The difference is on non-Windows systems bigger. There looking the colors, which Jabaco uses as default, ugly.

To use non-colors in your own project, you have in Jabaco.xml in your Jabaco-directory replacing all values, which begins with "-2147" (for example: "-2147483641" or "-2147483630") to "-1". Then all new created projects will using non-colors.
Or if you already have an existing project, then replacing in your *.jsrc-files all "-2147" values with an "-1".
But as I said before: Currently existing not for all controls a non-color. If you doing it on an control, where no non-color exists, then foreground and background of that control is in the same red-color.
So it would be better to make a backup of your project, bofore setting all colors to -1.

Additional disadvantage of that non-colors is, that in the IDE all colors with the non-color -1 are in the "Properties"-area shown as a white color "255; 255; 255". So for new Jabaco-user, it would be confusing, that the properties shows, that a controls would be white, but it have a complete different color. Thats also the reason, why I not changed all colors in Jabaco.xml to -1.

But on the other side, the current coloring is alread confusing.
In the properties-area you can not see, if a control is set to a system-color ("Desktop", "Title.Active.Backcolor", ...) or to a defined color.
