Window Controls Differ Between MS-DOS & Windows Versions

ID: Q105590

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

Windows created with FoxPro for Windows have a different style of controls from those created with FoxPro for MS-DOS.

FoxPro for Windows is designed to conform to the Windows 3.1 interface guidelines for applications. These guidelines allow Windows 3.1 users to use the same methods of moving, selecting, and changing windows across all Windows-based applications.

Windows created with FoxPro for Windows include Control-menu boxes and Minimize, Maximize, and Restore buttons. For a complete discussion of these window styles and terminology, see the "Getting Started" manual.


Microsoft FoxPro "Getting Started," version 2.5
