SuggestionNew programming language Pin
Globin18-Jul-12 12:18
memberGlobin18-Jul-12 12:18 
I've got an idea for a new programming language:
New Coding Visual # Language = NCV#L


<if the specified condition is complete, runs code>
If [condition] Then
-If---Sub keywords
<if the previous condition isn't complete, specifies another conditions and runs other code>
elseif [condition]
<no conditions true? Run else's code>
If [mytextbox-text = ""] Then
msg{"No text"}
elseif [mytextbox-text = Null]
msg{"Text's null"}
msg{"There's text"}
Shown in the previous if example. Represents the default value of anything. Its use may cause a NullReferenceException.
Declares a new instance of object. Can be use after as or in equals
privated mytxtbox as new TextBox
myobj = new TextBox
Specifies the type of a declaration. Its use was shown in the previous example.
----- public, privated, friendly, shared, local, hidden
Keywords specifying how an object can be accessed:
public – from any place of the solution
privated – from only the place where it was declared
friendly – from only on the declared namespace of it.
shared – from all instance of its parent.
local – none of these keywords can be used as local variables on methods. Except this one.
hidden – declares again object hiding other objects with the same name on its parent.
byval , byref , opt are used only in parameters.
Use shown on the previous example of AS
Same of sub and void in VB&C#. Declares a method, its parameters and its code and have nothing to return. Void don’t have ctors so does not matter if you put ‘as new void’
public main-load as void {byval e as object}
myGroupbox-Header = “This is what we call ‘effect void’”
CTORS are like subnew and public blablablabla on C#&VB. Define how each instance of class will be created
#Call of StartComponent is needed for XAML\WinForms design support
Create more options to voids\funcs\ctors.
public load-text as void{byref filename as str}
option{byval filename as str, byval coding as Coding}
myrtf.LoadAdvanced{filename, coding}
option{byval stream as Stream}
Imports a namespace, as well its members.
Uses Me.Resources
Like void, but shold return something.
public CheckSpell{} as func[ as bool ]
If [Spellerror] Then
Only in funcs or in the property situations below(props). Makes a object throw the valueToReturn.
A property.
public WordWrap as props[ as bool ]{local ww as bool}
WhenRead #Means: what will be done when the prop is being read.
return ww
WhenWrite #Means: what will be done when the prop is being write.
ww = value
NOTE:If you miss any value, it will become Read Only\Write Only.

Default types(in red)

App commands
Using App #Using acts like with of visual basic.
.Run – runs a new instance of app
.Shutdown – End all instances of application
End (doesn’t needs to type or use app) – close the current instance of app.
A class can’t refer to themselve – use this instead
My namespace was replace by Me namespace
Properties aren't separated by dot and yes, by a hiphen.
properties\funcs returning values are in boxes

Arguments are in braces
