component

Gambas components are external shared libraries written in C, C++ or in Gambas that add new functions to the Gambas interpreter.

Components are stored in $PREFIX/lib/gambas3, the value of $PREFIX depending on where Gambas is installed on your system. By default, $PREFIX is /usr/local.

Information regarding components is stored in $PREFIX/share/gambas3/info.

To use a component in a project, you must go to the ProjectProperties menu, and check the component(s) you need. Otherwise, you will get the following error message:

« Cannot load xxx class: Unable to load class file »
