00417: List of possible SYSWINDOW modes


List of possible SYSWINDOW modes


Modes are available so that a SYSWINDOW device can be initially created with the attributes desired. 

Mode                  Description 
COLS=                  Columns (default 80). 
FONT=                  Sets font family to be used (default platform specific). 
FONTSIZE=         Font size in points (default 10). 
INVERT                  Causes Invert light/dark check box in the Print menu to be initially checked. 
INVISIBLE         Causes the SYSWINDOW to be invisible initially. 
LOCKMODE=         Chooses the display mode (see the Font/Size Dialog Box section in the Installation and Configuration Guide). Choices are NORMAL, VARYFONTS, and SCROLLBARS. 
MAXIMIZED         Window initially maximized. 
MENU                  Add menu for clipboard operations and screen print. 
MINIMIZED         Window initially minimized. 
ROWS=                  Rows (default 25). 
TITLE=                  Sets window title (default Visual PRO/5). 
XPOS=                  Pixels from left (default 100) of the client area. 
YPOS=                  Pixels from top (default 100) of the client area. 

Many of these are normally restored for the console window from the pro5.ini file, but can be overridden with a mode specifier. MENU can only be used on non-console windows, since the console window always has its own menu. 

Whenever a SYSWINDOW requires input, it is automatically made visible, raised, enabled, unminimized, and focused. Because of this, the “Run Minimized” property and the INVISIBLE and MINIMIZED modes may not appear to work as expected. These features work only when no input is required from the SYSWINDOW console. If you start a program from the command line that does not use input from the console window, then the “Run Minimized” property and the INVISIBLE and MINIMIZED modes will function as expected.
