Several products made with or for REALbasic, the authoring environment from Real Software have been released.
Full Screen Movie Player, a new application made with REALbasic, provides full screen playback for Mac users.
To use Full Screen Movie Player, you drop a movie on the application icon or use the open command from the menu. Press the “escape” key at any time to quit the player or use QuickTime’s movie controller to navigate through the movie. The application is “donationware”; pay the author what you feel it’s worth.
has released five socket examples and one example that demonstrates the use of the new ToolbarItem classes and Drawer window in REALbasic 5. The examples are some of the beginning of a large series that will be continually released over the coming weeks, according to Seth Willits, president and head developer of Freak Software.
What’s more, the new
for REALbasic 5 allows developers to construct programs which, because of operator and function overloading, can handle real matrices much like doubles and integers are handled. Matrix elements are doubles. A matrix can be entered in standard form in a MultiLine EditField and read in by a single instruction.
Included with the product are two REALbasic projects: one used for testing, the other for showing the ease of constructing a program that solves a set of linear equations. The Matrix Plug-in can be used to build Mac OS X, Mac OS 9.x, or Windows applications.
has released version 1.5 of GraphPro, a utility for graphing to REALbasic projects. The update includes support for Pie, Cartesian, and Column graph modes. The source code for the GraphPro classes is available for $75. One year of maintenance is included in the price.
