Shawn I am getting some feed back from win9x users that kixforms is not working, as in buttons and events are not firing. NT computers are working fine.

I am trying to get more information, but i do not have a win9x computer to test on.

Bryce,

Kixforms is like 99% there for Win9x - the event strings aren't being returned properly on 9x ... two options:

1) If urgent, I can dive into getting that 1% fixed on the current build.

2) Kixforms TNG (The Next Generation) will have 9x support ... but isn't available yet ...

Go ahead and work on TNG, from what you have said I should not have to hard of a time adapting to the new version.

Hi bud - get yourself the latest build (20) and try this script:

code:
break on

$form = createobject("kixtart.form")
$form.text = "Shawn"
$form.width = 300
$form.height = 300
$form.fontname = "verdana"
$form.fontsize = 12

$minimize = $form.commandbutton("Minimize",10,10)
$minimize.center
$minimize.onclick = "$$form.show(2)"

$form.center
$form.show
while $form.visible
$=execute($form.doevents)
loop

exit 1

note: show(2) 2=minimize

-Shawn

hmmm I got build 20, ran your sample and still it will only minimize to the taskbar when I click on the commandbutton $minimize, I am guessing that .show(2) will place it on the Tray?

show(2) is a new method to automatically (programatically) script a minimize. Running in the system tray is a whole new matter - completely different mechanism for doing that ... good idea though - not supported in current build ... hmmmm ... [Wink]
