It's very hard to understand this. If you want to write a C++ plugin for CodeBlocks that shows "Hello BASIC4GL" in a message box this is doable. What exactly do you want to do? A plugin can be virtually anything...?!

C::B is an IDE (as described nicely on the frontpage of the C::B homepage and in the WiKi).

-How to compile a .cpp file of CodeBlock ?
- Setup C::B (thus, provide it with a compiler if you did not install C::B as a bundle including the compiler already)
- Open the file
- Hit "Compile".
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

As far as i understand it

Basic4GL is a BASIC programming language that supports Plugin DLL's "created in C++ with the plugin SDK".
On their website* is says that the plugin SDK "Includes project files for Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and CodeBlocks."
So it is safe to assume that Codeblocks cam compile plugins for BASIC4GL, because they specifically included the project files for it.
For specifics on how to do that you may be better asking on their forums.

If you are asking for plugins for programs MADE in BASIC4GL I think that would depend on the specific program.

Being an IDE I think the answer to your question is Yes, you can type up the program and compile it all from within codeblocks.

I hope this answers some of your questions.

First: compiling a Basic4GL-plugin is straightforward, I tested it yesterday.

Second: C::B don't need a special compiler, so mingw.org is the first address to search at.

Third: try "Build" instead of "Compile", you should be able to find it yourself, if not you are an absolute beginner, and that's not a forum to teach beginners how to learn programming.

Enough hints: topic locked !
