I am new to izibasic and I am also a beginner programer as well. The last time I use a basic programming language was when apple II's where new.

I have written a few small programs in Quartus Forth that I use for my work as a carpenter.

My first question is how do I generate the entire source code into the memo pad. I gotten it to generate the source code from the beginner program that's used in the manual, but I dosen't generate the entire code, just the begin and end stuff none of the objects like check boxes and buttons.
I want to be able to see the source code from other progams so I can refresh my memory of the basic language. I've generated the code for ViziBinDec, but just like the beginner program none of the gosubs and calculations showed up, only the begin and end.

By the way I use ViziBasic not the memo pad to write code. I haven't been able to generate code in ViziBasic, I tried, but nothing happens. It's says source code was generated, but I haven't found it yet. Thats why I have it generate to the memo pad.

Hello Gary,

Welcome back to Basic programming.
Your history is very similar to mine, I started coding in Basic on Sharp Pocket Computers back in the 1980's, then some BASICA in DOS... then iziBasic!

I am a little bit confused by your message, but I think that the misunderstanding is in the type of file source code is saved by ViziBasic: this is the so called DOC format and you will need a doc editor to read them and modify them. Consider the Notepad as a "cheap" starting alternative.
Please read explanations about DOC editors in the appendix #3 of the iziBasic user manual. With any DOC editor, you will get to see source codes generated by ViziBasic.

welcome to the izibasic community Gary!
First, memo pad doesn't recognize recognize regular doc formats, that's why your program isn't showing up. Second, for a great doc editor that works in sync with izibasic too, I highly recommend srcedit. What I do is make my basic program with visibasic, create source code, open and work on it in srcedit, then I compile it.
