- all functions in the
application work normally, and also with the mouse or the arrow keys and
cursor. - the subfile has a fully
functional scroll bar.
checkbox 1 is checked then the first field of the subfile record will be
pink if field5:1 ="!". -
if checkbox 2 is checked then the subfile's fifth field will be
- there are 4 logical
files built over the physical file, one each for column 1 through 4.
The user determines which logical to use, thereby determining which of the
first 4 columns is in ascending order, by clicking on the column heading of
- there's a pair
of radio buttons in the heading. The act of selecting an item in the
subfile does one or the other of two functions depending upon which of the
two radio buttons on the heading is selected.
- the footer record uses push buttons instead of
command keys, although the command keys function, too.

devices to our toolbox. I can see where the radio buttons and check
boxes are attactive, add to the clarity and simplicity of a screen, and
remove the user's ability to answer "T" to a yes/no question.
Now that I've messed
around with this, Ron's comments about the menu bar has me
The JPG is 135k.
Anyone that'd like to take a look, let me know. Its too big to
just attach here.
