Just .02
     
     I've tried several times to include subfile scrollbars and menu bars 
     in my apps and enhancements, and have always had to remove them. The 
     business analysts claim "the users will get confused unless we make 
     the screens look like what they're used to seeing." Out with the new, 
     in with the old. That's their motto.
     
     I understand the need for consistency, especially in legacy apps, but 
     with this kind of thinking, we'll never get out of the 80's.....

My faith is renewed in this group... In the original ranting and raving 
I
did, my complaint was that programmers were unable or unwilling to try 
the features and functions that we all have had for a number of years.
     
It would appear that a simple conversation has at least made a 
difference
in the way a few folks felt. If we ALL were more willing to try these 
functions, a lot of our older applications would sure look a lot 
better to the users... This little discussion has apparently had some 
real benefits.. I applaud everybody who tries !!!!!!
