This screenshot shows the HBasic mainwindow with
all windows you normally can see after starting the program.
The project tree window shows all parts of your
HBasic project. It may be used in different ways depending

Folding source code in the editor
Automatic code completion in the source code editor
This is a first form of a menu and toolbar editor. The tree
views show the current structure of the menubar and toolbar for the current
form and the actions are used to establish a connection between the
menubar and toolbar entries and the sourcecode that should be started
when the entry will be activated.
The option dialog may be used to edit some global options for
the HBasic program.
With the package manager you may define which predefined
component packages will be loaded when starting HBasic and find some
information about methods, properties and events that will be exported

This window may be used to define connections to database servers.
You have to connect a database to your project before you can edit the

This window may be used to create or edit a database query.
This two screenshots show the report editor window with a special version
of the property editor and the output of the report execution. This is a
very early version of a report editor and will be extended in oncoming versions.
The SQL statement designer can be used to create edit or execute
SQL statements that may be used again later.
Data aware forms may be used to edit the fields of a database
table within a HBasic GUI form. You can set up a working data form
without any line of HBasic source code. (See example ex_data_form.bas)
The database design window should show the fixed relations
between special table-columns of the database connected to your project.
This is an alpha version of an editor to create new database
tables or edit the structure of an existing table.
