You also need to test THOROUGHLY if you do this. I played with a heap of the dialog boxes a while ago and everything seemed fine. Then next time I used Save As PDF, frame crashed. Sigh.
Cheers, Rebecca >>> "Joe Malin" <jmalin at tuvox.com> 16/08/06 12:11 >>> I noted previously that most FM dialogs have both static and dynamic controls. If you resize the dialog box and move around the static controls, you risk damaging the dynamic behavior. Developers define static controls in "resource files" which get compiled into executables or DLLs. Developers generate dynamic controls as the program is running, by issuing Windows API calls. If you modify the static controls or the dialog box containing them, you may end up putting a static control at the same place a dynamic control is supposed to appear.

Make a backup copy of fmdlg.dll before you start hacking (but you knew this anyway, right?). I tried to do this just a week ago with FM 7.2 but FM complained when booting, then died. I don't know if the fmdlg.dll file has somehow changed. Mind you, I changed the relative positions of some of the buttons, etc. as well as generally enlarging the dialogue, so perhaps that was it. Has anybody successfully hacked FM 7.2 dialogues? s and info. _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as rebecca.officer at alliedtelesyn.co.nz.
