active  Topic # 1105  Can I copy from PC notepad and paste directly into Memo on Palm Simulator?

I have been using a Palm simulator (for version 5 OS) to run izibasic and to type my programs. That way I can use the PC keyboard for typing. The space on the Memo-pad in the Palm simulator is quite small and does not allow easy typing and viewing. I have tried typing in the Notepad program on my PC and copying to the Memo program on the Palm simulator. It doesn't work. I guess the only way would be to perform an HotSync between the Palm simulator and the PC. I do not want to do this since I am afraid it may corrupt the HotSyn settings with my actual Palm. Any way of directly copying and pasting into the simulator?

Forget the memopad of the simulator.

This is what I do:

1. Install PIAF in the simulator, and type into PIAF.
2. As an alternative, use TL-PDB or any other PC program to create a Palm(DOC) uncompressed file, then simply drag the file (.PDB) from a folder of your PC and drop it into the simulator window (this will "install" the file without doing any hotsync).

The only trouble with the Simulator is that you cannot easily export the source code back to the PC.

Then, I highly recommend you to use TL-PDB as Montalvo wrote (I am happy that he remembered and used my advice ). It is a very light and convenient software. The only negative point is that there is no iziBasic syntax color coding in it.

If you start to work on "PP applets", you may also consider Fozzy, PP's dedicated IDE for the PC. This is the one I use when I need to work on huge revamping in iziBasic's source code.
But, again, there is no iziBasic syntax color coding in it.

Cheers

..."use TL-PDB as Montalvo wrote (I am happy that he remembered and used my advice)"...

Don't tell anyone but, I do most of my code on my Dana... and I use the PC just to create resources: icons, menus, etc.

..."The only trouble with the Simulator is that you cannot easily export the source code back to the PC."...

It is easy with the following:

1. In the place where you download the simulator, look for a file called: "HostFS_Simulator.prc" and install it on your simulator session (remember the trick of drag and drop?)

2. Do a softreset on the simulator. After that you will have a "virtual SD/MMC card" with the name: "POSESlot1"

3. All the files that you copy/move on this "virtual SD/MMC" card, will be save on the "Card1" folder of your hard disk.

If your simulator is installed on:
C:PalmAppsToolsSimulator
then this virtual card will be on:
C:PalmAppsToolsSimulatorCard1

TIP: In the simulator, you can save a "Storage Snapshot File" with all your tools to develop: izibasic, piaf, bird, etc. Just do a right-click with the mouse, select STORAGE, then SAVE.. and create the SSF file. When you come back to develop more applications with izibasic in the simulator, then you just need to LOAD the SSF file and you will have all your tools loaded into the simulator (including the virtual Card).

I followed your instructions and managed to make a Virtual Card (POSESlot1). I also downloaded TL_PDB and created an uncompressed Palm DOC file. However when I drag and drop the file into the virtual folder or even directly onto the simulator I cannot see the DOC file on the simulator (on either the handheld or the POSESlot1 disk). When I try to delete the file (using the Simulator Delete Menu) the file does show up but I can't see it on the simulator screen! A soft reset does not help either.

The file that you create with TL-PDB is a Palm(DOC) file, and you need a DOC reader installed on your simulator session. I suggest using PIAF, because it integrates so well with izibasic.

Install PIAF, and open your PDB with it. You should see it, and work with it without problem.

I use TL-PDB.

Run TL-PDB, set the filename
in the Format PDB_file_properties (filename.ibas no .PDB), write the izibasic code (make first line 'filename.ibas no.pdb here either). when done File_save_as filename.ibas.pdb on your hard drive (note .pdb on the end).

Then I drag and drop POOF works.

Took me hours to figure that one.

Hope that helps...

It took me years to find TL-PDB.
At least will I have quickly promoted this great piece of software to you my friends!

You actually told me about it :)

And I saw on the forum about extracting the .prc files from the simulator via the FSHost/SD card (folder). So I can dump emulate and have color.. Very happy.

I like to use "SaveToHost".
To read and write between Pose
and Hard Disk.
From FreewarePalm.
It is easier.

Yeap, nice trick, but limited to 4Kb files. Anyway, for this kind of files, your suggestion works very good.
