Re: IDE project path

Sorry, I don't understand the reply (but am grateful that there was a reply)

I want to avoid the message "Invalid Project Name/Path (Spaces ...etc ....Not Allowed)"

Is there anyway (any fix to IDE) to allow me to use the "normal" mysourcecode directory with the IDE?

Thanks

Thanks again Andy for helping with my 1st use of the IDE. It works now! Question: If the first window calls another window that also has a menu, are the menus both called "MAIN" even though the second window is a child.

Re: POPUP Disallowed - why?

Thank you for the reply

The code in the post does not say "context menu" but maybe I did select one of those from the IDE.
If I did then it should show up in the code thought.

Can anyone see how to edit the code to fix the error condition?

Thanks again

Re: Enable/ disable Menu item

Thanks to both members who responded. I really think this enable/ disable technique should explained clearly in the HMG Ref doc

I did notice a members question from several years back but I don't understand if or how it was resolved. If you want the MenuIems to be allowed only if a condition exists - for ...

Grid Checkbox Select all (How to)

When selecting from a grid list with checkboxes

I would like to know of a way to select ALL checkboxes, perhaps with an ALT+Key
or something. if its possible it would be convenient to only deselect a minority of
items rather than selecting the majority one by one.

Thanks all.

Re: How to use BT_BitmapPaste

To all friends who replied. I finally traced my problem to not having released the BTStruct array associated with the composite bitmap hCD. After closing the array with BT_DeleteDC (BTstruct) the Composite jpg image was as expected. I had to release this array before trying to use BT_BitmapPaste and...
