To Create a Main Window, Custom Dialog, or File Selection Dialog

  1. Drag a main window, custom dialog, or a file selection dialog box from the Windows palette and drop it on the workspace.

    If you haven't previously named the module, the Module Name dialog box will be displayed. Move the cursor to the Module Name dialog box, type a name, and click Apply.

    The module name will be displayed in the status area at the bottom of the window.

  2. Edit the properties of the window object, if necessary.

    This can be done now or later. See "To Edit Properties of an Object" for general instructions. See "Example: Editing Main Window Properties" for specific instructions for a main window or a primary main window.
