  • Forms-friendly code

    Having created a program using Forms 1.51 then knocked it about a bit in the Winows 8.04 IDE it is no longer recognisable to Forms, which now can see only a single control, although the numbers of the others are declared constants. Any general guidance on how to get the genie back in the bottle?

    Did you move the CONTROL ADD statements of missing controls outside the:
    #pbforms begin dialog %ID_xxxxxxxxx->->
    #pbforms end dialog

    With a copy, try PBForms Import instead of Open. If that doesn't work, try removing all #pbforms metastatements then importing. If still no joy, we'll need to see the code.

      thanks for your suggesion, I got it going by cutting out one of the dialogs completely, loading the other one into PBForms, then pasting the previously deleted on back in via the IDE. I can only guess that there was something a bit wrong with each of the dialogs and that in combination they were toxic to PBForms.
