BASIC for Linux®, Mac® OS X and Windows®

It is a new programming language related to VB.NET™, Visual Basic®, Visual Basic for Application and Java™. It combines the best features of those tools and comes with built-in backward support for those tools as it is 100% syntax compatible to VB, VBA and QBasic®.

Additionally, it comes with support for VB.NET™ syntax, functions and similar objects and classes.

KBasic is an open source project backed by years of continual development. It allows developers with an installed base of VB applications to start developing for a mixed Windows®, Mac® OS X and Linux® environment.

KBasic is made up of the following programs:

● a compiler
● an interpreter
● an integrated development environment

It is about 15 MB source codes in C++ and about 1000 source code files.

Full Version Professional Edition


KBasic is a full featured language, which supports the best modern programming techniches known with well designed objects, events and plenty of documentation.

KBasic uses Qt (C++) as its toolkit to provide cross-platform abilities. KBasic is the easiest way to get cross-platform development without the needs to learn C/C++ as it combines the expressive power of C++ with the familiarity and ease of use of VB. The API of Qt is consistent across all supported platforms, enabling platform independent application development and deployment.

KBasic's source codes are provided for Visual Studio® C++ 2008, KDevelop and Xcode®. Qt itself is open source and available from Nokia®.

You may use the KBasic’s source codes under the terms of the GNU Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation (Version 3).


People around the world join KBasic - inspired by the idea to make software available for everybody: a programming language that is easy to use, and a development platform that is stable, reliable and available at a low price.

We communicate by different means, most of them on the Internet. The KBasic community rests on dedicated volunteers to further improve our programming language and development platform in a number of different ways. Whatever your skills, there are lots of places to start contributing.

Where’s the fun using KBasic, if others don’t know? Order a KBasic Professional License today, and support it!

The project is under active development and has a vibrant community. If you are looking at ways of helping the project, take a look at the following URL.



This is a short overview. For details check out the examples and manuals of KBasic.

Use C/C++ libraries from within KBasic
KBasic supports calling functions of C/C++ library files (*.DLL, *.SO and *.DYLIB) enabling you to mix C/C++ and BASIC code.

Database and SQL

Supported databases on all platforms are
● PostgreSQL
● SQLite

KBasic uses SQLite as embedded database engine, which creates database files locally on your machine without the need of a database server.

The SQL binding for controls helps you to easily create data-aware forms.

You may store date, time, text, numbers, images, movies and sounds or any binary data within a database.

* Some features are not available yet.


If you deploy your application, you might consider making it available for different languages. KBasic helps you with this task by adding support for translations. For each form you may create a translated form and for each text, you may provide a translated version.

Unicode and String
KBasic gives you the possibility to support non-latin languages, e.g. Arabic or Chinese characters. The String data type comes with a built-in Unicode support in KBasic.

KBasic enables you to directly use the math functions commonly used in BASIC applications. It declares a set of functions to compute common mathematical operations and transformations. Additional, you may directly use the C library math functions commonly used in C/C++ applications.

Date and time

Support for dealing with date and time is built-in as well.

Rich text format (RTF)
KBasic give you the control for dealing with RTF. You may use an advanced WYSIWYG viewer/editor control supporting rich text formatting using HTML-style tags. It is optimized to handle large documents and to respond quickly to user input. It can display a large HTML subset, including tables and images and custom syntax highlighting.

Web Browser
Provides a powerful full-featured web browser (based on WebKit) and enables you to create desktop application with a HTML and Javascript interface. It is possible to add custom KBasic controls within the HTML code and interact with them. Use web pages within your desktop application like “Google Map”.

Supports MDI and SDI, Dock window, Tool window, Main window, Dialog, Normal window, Menubar, Toolbar, Statusbar, Systemtray, Multi-page Window, Scrolling in Window, Transparent Window, System dialogs, Storing preferences, Embedded windows, Context menu, Image buttons for graphical buttons with custom images for each state, Custom timer events, Adding control on the fly, Drag & drop, Windows Vista look and feel, Aqua interfaces on Mac.

Furthermore, it is possible to use stylesheets for customizing the controls' look.

Memory management
The following objects and classes helps you to organize your data in memory:

Strings, Bits, Binary, Array and Dictionary.

File system
Support for files and directories: Read, write, create and more.

Easy download of files from the Internet.

Multi-media support for movies and sounds
Supported formats depend on the platform used.


Interacting with the operating system
Run other programs or open files with the associated applications.

Create your own controls

That someone wants to make KDE part of their business model.

Frankly until industry begins taking a serious business interest and invest in the Linux desktop, it will only play second or third fiddle.

Starting your own business let alone your own project is not easy, lets recognize this.

I think it is a good and featureful software but I don`t understand why it is not very popular, maybe not introduced very well.
I read author opinions on his site and I think he is right. Personally, I appretiate his work.

Good luck to KBasic

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
