@MathieuGuindon FWIW: C# doesn't allow out as a identifier....
 
by conscious design decision; when they added a var keyword they had to interpret it in context. ditto with async and await, and adding out var didn't break out or var.
 
but does tB have the same luxury?
 
why not?
 
personally, I'd rather say "fix your silly VB6 code"
 
12:11 AM
also, this OP appears at times to read "backward compatibility" as "twinBASIC code should also work in VB6"
so...
 
Public Sub Derp(Out As Doh) is legal in VB.
 
yep, and has no reason not to be interpreted as ByRef Out as Doh
 
yeah or Out Out As Doh
 
or Out {expected: identifier} As Doh

12:13 AM
thing is, tweaking the parser rules around member signatures is the back-compat risk
not adding the keyword per se
if adding the keyword is done as intended, then an implicit ByRef parameter named Out should still parse correctly
@this nah I agree breaking implicit ByRef would be a problem
 
Yeah, I get it - you don't want to fix your 20 years monster codebase because of a new keyword
since if it can't migrate, it won't migrate -- no opportunity for tB.
But, I do expect it to get refactored. Surely you aren't migrating just for giggles, right?
 
sure but 100% back-compat does imply you can just paste your crappy legacy code and it "just works"
 
Sure. But surely you aren't going to leave it like that indefinitely?
I mean, if I'm visiting some procedure, I at least try to pay off the tech debt there.
"OMG YOU MUST NOT TOUCH THIS YOU NO KNOW WHAT CLD HAPP3NWTFBBQ!!!eleven!" is .... annoying.
 
for all I care VSC could just show every implicit keyword, written or not... makes no difference :)
 
and I honestly do believe the driving reason behind the "do not touch" mentality is the utter lack of refactorability in vb6.
 
12:23 AM
agree
 
I think Wayne has it right, thought - tB will have to drag vB kicking and screaming into 21st century.

we just need content. I'm writing about constructors and what they imply right now :)
 
:+1:
 
@MathieuGuindon Oscar speech I'm really just so glad I figured out to use db first without having to ask here
 
12:38 AM
I think that pretty much settles it. However I will save that for the refactoring since from what I can tell the EF I currently have "works" well enough to continue developing the UI.
I imagine that smily as a (very) mild trollface btw
Anyways gl with the blog post!
 
12:54 AM
hey @user240781
 
you have write access now
 
I'm back due to popular demand!

It's Hosch again :D

What's up?
 
12:57 AM
good to see you man!
 
You too.
 
well kinda lol
 
And I hopefully won't need write privs for too long. I have a question up that's already got a vote.
 
mine lol
welcome back!!
 
I'm not going to make any promises, but I hope to sometime get one of those remote code server things up sometime.
It doesn't look too hard.
 
12:59 AM
have you seen / heard of / tried twinBASIC?
 
Unless Wayne already did with his new IDE thing.
I saw it this morning. Looks cool.
 
it's a bloody revolution in the making :)
 
I always did recommend writing our own IDE.
 
it's a VSCode plug-in though
 
@Hosch250 The problem is that we are not Wayne.
and welcome, btw!
 
1:01 AM
^ also that lol
 
(was VSC a thing 5 years ago?)
 
was probably just starting out... came out around .NET Core IIRC
 
> On April 14, 2016, Visual Studio Code graduated from the public preview stage and was released to the Web.
So, I have a new job; did I mention that shortly before I left?
 
was new in 2020 or you got a new-new one?
 
Nov 2019.
Anyway, we do a conference.
It was online last year because of COVID, and again this year (May 4th).
I gave a talk on accessibility last year, and I'm doing one on client-side Blazor this year.
sessions.mndevconf.com.
 
1:04 AM
nice!
 
Been working on building a chat system and sponsor hall for it (sponsor hall is "hidden" for now, but accessible at this url: sessions.mndevconf.com/conftuner/136980541487/expo-hall
You have to sign in to chat.
And I think chat is turned off for the conference (but not expo hall) ATM.
What have you been up to? Still an MVP?
Still running accounting/sales software for the fancy suit company?
 
yep and yep
 
Nice.
How's the COVID economy been treating you?
 
I'm lucky... currently on time-share working 4/5 days, others have it much worse
 
Yeah, I'm one of the really lucky ones that wasn't affected.
 
1:09 AM
I'm going to have to make phone calls soon-ish, been calling this boat "sinking" for like 3 years now
 
Jobs were tight when it started, but by the end of the year, my company was doing really well again.
Have you heard of OpenAPI (nee Swagger)?
 
not sure
might have seen the name before
 
they're on 3.0 now, no?
 
(tbh I kind of dislike the current name -- "open api" is not that distinctive. )
 
1:11 AM
So, there's a similar system called AsyncApi for messaging systems.
They are hiring someone; all OSS, all remote.
I just saw that yesterday; if you are looking, might be something you are interested in.
I'd jump at it if I wasn't happy at my current job.

thanks! not actively looking right now though (maybe I should)
 
How's SE been? Mostly sane?
I see you and Vogel are both retiring your mod hats?
 
@MathieuGuindon sure your experience with shopify will be immensely useful, though. You already know what to not do, right?
 
@Hosch250 wah that's pretty slick!
@this lol!
 
@this Oh yes, I see references to Shopify everywhere.
Just read the blogpost on twinBasic. Is that using the duck's grammar behind the scenes?
 
1:18 AM
I don't think so
no idea actually
 
pretty sure he wrote his parser grounds up in c++
 
You could probably package different pieces of VB up as VS Code addons.
Like, just the refactorings or just the inspections.
Just say which file types you support.
 
on main page:
> Brand new custom parser (written in C++), built for flexibility and amazing performance
 
@this OK. That must have been a LOT of work.
 
I imagine so but since he was also writing his own compiler.... it's easier?
(compiler has to parse, right?)
 
1:21 AM
Makes sense.
I'll be back later. Playing a game of Civ 6 with a friend.
 
ha I bought that one for Switch, ..ugh, last year lol haven't finished my first game
 
later and good to see you (even if briefly!)
 
I've played about 10. I haven't won yet, although I've come close several times.
Maybe we can play together sometime.
@this You too.
 
1:55 AM
@Hosch250 well well well... Look what the duck dragged in.
 
Hey, Iven.
 
Glad to see you swimming around the pond again.
 
2:26 AM
 
 
11 hours later…
1:36 PM
Had my first covid jab yesterday. I feel rotten :-(
 
@mansellan but you now can wear a half-mask!
 
lol yeah
Still glad I got it, but damn it kicked my ass...
 
 
2 hours later…
3:40 PM
I have chat privs now.
Hey, mansellan.
 
@Hosch250! Welcome back. How are you?
 
hello
 
@mansellan I’m assuming hungry to work on RD. Considering how slow we’ve all been recently.
 
3:55 PM
@FatihDurmuş Hi
 
@Hosch250 ^^ you ready to put us to shame with a barrage of new PRs? :)
@FatihDurmuş welcome to the pond.
 
4:25 PM
Good, how are you?
No, Iven. Want to finish a personal project first.
 
Yep good thanks. Been lucky that my work hasn't been detroyed by COVID.
 
Just popped back to say hi.
Nice. Mine either.
Bought a house last October.
 
Oh cool, congrats!
 
Need to paint the deck and seal the driveway, but otherwise in great shape.
 
It's nice to have your own place
 
4:30 PM
Yep.
Been working on cleaning out the gardens a bit. They'd gone to seed since the owner got too old to care for them.
She died, and I bought the house from the estate.
 
I need to do some work in the garden, but the weather hasn't really been good enough.
 
Nice thing is, she had that black cloth stuff down, so the weeds were growing in the leaf litter on that. They all came out when I pulled the cloth out.
 
Ha nice - I really need to put some of that in. So much easier.
 
I might smooth the soil and put more down, but it looked really yucky since it was partially buried and all clumpy.
So it needed to come out anyway.
Bbl, going to vacuum now.
 
4:35 PM
Nice talking to you again.
Hope you feel better soon.
 
yep, been too long :-)
thanks

@IvenBach The mockedProjectSettingsProvider wasn't used be ImportCommand. Needed to be injected.

If you haven’t tried it already, download VSCode and get the twinBASIC extension, and be part of the next stage of the Visual Basic revolution. When it goes live (it’s still in preview, and vigorously maintained), twinBASIC will compile 100% VB6/VBA compatible code and completely redefine how VB6 and VBA solutions will be maintained and… Continue reading Constructors in twinBA

 
8:34 PM
> That is why constructors should adhere as much as possible to the KISS principle: Keep It Stupid Simple.
Isn't it Keep It Simple, Stupid?
 
that possibly used to be it, but the stupid simple idea is somewhat less insulting
 
@IvenBach :+1: We've now found out how properly invoke projectSettingsProvider.Verify(provider => provider.Save(projectSettings), Times.Once()). Now to figure out record the last assigned property value for dlg.FilterIndex and test for that.
^^ As Vogel said.
 
> While popular usage has transcribed it for decades as "Keep it simple, stupid", Johnson transcribed it as "Keep it simple stupid" (no comma), and this reading is still used by many authors.
Thanks, Wikipedia.
 
8:48 PM
@IvenBach I don't think we need to test for that. The updated dialog filter index is persisted via the Save(...) method. Check the projectSettings argument instead.
The dialog is created anew each time.
 
 
1 hour later…
Iven study link: github.com/Moq/moq4/wiki/Quickstart. Need to better understand how to set up mocking, verifying, and how callbacks are used...
