Where do I find information regarding properties.
« on: August 26, 2020, 02:36:17 AM »
Hi,

I am not sure how to ask the question. I see __UI_FocusIn(TextBox) etc ... a lot of _UI_  where do I find what this means ?

Also Control(ID) .. this type of command as well .. where do I look ?

Do I need to read up on MS Visual Basic ?

Inform generates the skeleton of a program but I don't know what commands or functions to use to reference the boxes, extract the entered details and use this data. I would also like to pre-populate the boxes as well.

Do I just need to read the Inform Wiki and look at the 56 pages that are listed.

Thanks,

Mike

I'd read the InForm Wiki here: https://github.com/FellippeHeitor/InForm/wiki

I'd also look at all the $INCLUDE files that are in the generated BAS code so you can see how they are structured. You can see implementation of many functions in there. That's how I learned to use it in a more advanced way. But for now, read the Wiki pages on each control. Try making a program in InForm. If you cannot get it to work, then post the source here and I will be happy to assist you.
