When it comes to the '.Dock' property, the sequence that the controls are created in decides the position of the controls on the form.

To understand what I am trying to say, using KFD.Net create two Panels on a blank form, then create a splitter on the form. Set the splitter.dock = bottom, set one panel.dock = bottom, and the other panel.dock = fill. In the object treeview (top right corner of KFD) select one of the controls (left click on the name of the control in the object treeview) then click the up or down arrow button (to the left of the object treeview). As you rearrange the control sequence in the object treeview the controls on the form will rearrange as well as the sequence that the controls are created on the code page (use the code/form button {top left corner of KFD} to switch from the form to the code and back).

I'm in the middle of a company reinstall, all servers had to be reinstalled and we're working on perfectioning the RIS images and logonscripts.
We should be done this weekend so that'll help me free up some time for next week in which I'll do my best to complete the form request.

It also helps if you are using the Beta version of KFD \:\(

I also had a problem working with panels and splitters. The objects ended always where I did not want them. But in the KFD help file is a good explanation titled "Splitter". Maybe take a look there.

- How do I know the size of the form after the size changed?
- Can I add an icon in the menu (for Exit)?

How do I know the size of the form after the size changed?

Look into the '.SizeChanged' event for the form.
In the function that you define for this event, look into the '.Width' and '.Height' property for the form.


Can I add an icon in the menu (for Exit)?

I have not done that myself and I don't think Shawn has built that in as of yet. If you can figure out how that would be great and others can learn from your example.

The minimum size of the form should not be allowed to be smaller than 600,400 (Width, Height) if it is resized.


In KFD there is the Form property "MinimumSize" - Of course this sounded like the perfect solution to the requirement...

However it appears that this is not implemented at this time. Or am I missing something?

When looking at the TypeLibrary it does not show this property. So is the only solution to watch the SizeChanged event?

The next lesson sould be a little harder, but I don't think it will be anything that everyone can't handle. I do think there will be some questions though, and that's ok.

Nice going Garg,

I still struggle with letting the form remember last position and Splitter distances which was soooo easy with classic kf... I will try to get a form by the end of the week but I might give in before and stick with the tools I know

Jochen, splitter distance http://www.kixtart.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=170867&page=1#Post171243

remember form size (there is more than one way to Dim a variable).

I don't know if the way that I came up with is the "proper way", but it seems to maintain position upon a resize.

I am sure that once we post, there will be lots of comments on how things are done.

Jooel, I know you can come up with a better way than I have. I know you hate dealing with the GUI but heck KFD does the hard part for you. I will be disapointed if you don't post your own code ;\)

uhm.
look at your task.

it would take me a day with my belowed notepad and lots of beer to be able to accomplish that many gui objects.

I'm afraid I must skip this one, skippy.

Question:

does $system.Icon.FromBase64String() handle strings that are converted from bmp files ?

I can't beat this to work :

Code:
break on

$system = createobject('Kixforms.System')

$form = $system.Form()
$form.Icon = $system.Icon.FromBase64String(String_FormIcon())


$form.Show


while $form.Visible
    $_ = execute($system.Application.DoEvents)
loop

function String_FormIcon()
    $String_FormIcon = "
    Qk02AwAAAAAAADYAAAAoAAAAEAAAABAAAAABABgAAAAAAAADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA////
    ////////////////////////////////wMDAwMDAwMDA////////AAAAAAAA////////////
    ////////////wMDAwMDAAAAAAAAAAAAAwMDA////////AAAAAAAA////////////////////
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD/AAAAwMDA////////AAAAAAAA////////////////////AAAAwMDA
    ////AAAAAAAAAAAA////////////AAAAAAAA////////////////////AAAAwMDA////////
    wMDAwMDAwMDA////////AAAAAAAA////////////////////AAAAwMDAwMDAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    wMDA////////AAAAAAAA////////////////////AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP8AAAAAwMDA////
    ////AAAAAAAA////////////////////AAAAwMDAwMDAAAAAAAAAAAAA////////////AAAA
    ////wMDAwMDAwMDAwMDAAAAAAAAAAAAAwMDA////////////////////////AAAA////AAAA
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP//AAAAwMDA////////////////////////AAAA////AAAAwMDA////
    ////AAAAAAAAAAAA////////////////////////////AAAA////AAAAwMDA////////////
    ////////////////////////////////////AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAwMDAAAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/
    AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAAAAAAA//8AAAAAwMDAAAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/
    AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAD/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAwMDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    "
endfunction


the string results from 6-FormIcon.png you attached earlier converted to (saved as) bitmap.
