Help with old multiple menu

Post by bobypoz » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:24 am

Hello,

I used this power menu in old clipper accounting applications. It was good for them because they had many clients they had to manage, so every client had their own folder, and by using this menu it was possible to easily setup entering clients data. You unrar attachment and by clicking menu.com, you enter the menu. In mainmenu you will see 10 to choose options. I used this particular menu for a company that used my application from 2005 till 2011. Each year has two options. You edit each option with insert button.

My question is does anyone have seen something similar made in HMG? I thing someone might find it useful.

I have no idea how it works your example. You have not mentioned how to start, which password...

I guess this C:\MiniGUI\SAMPLES\BASIC\MenuDBF is probably will give you an idea how to make it.
You will find at Minigui Extended samples.

This program not based on Clipper / HMG, but a "tool" based on OS, usable all with kind of software.

So, you can find much and much free utilities such kind in the i-net; for DOS or Windows; please ask to Google or any other search engine you prefer.

Useful ?

Personally, for me no :(

I prefer writing my software myself and I don't like such "ready to use" tools for programmers.

In other hand, HMG is capable to write any application can anyone can imagine
simply require a bit perspiration ;)

Happy HMG'ing :D

Esgici,

I am young, so I do not have many applications that I made, but I also like using my own applications. But I need some help to get started. ;)

I just thought that someone might find this kind of software useful as an idea for creating something similar, not using it as it is.


Cheers.

OK Boby, you are exactly correct place;
yo are welcome to wonderful world of HMG :D
But I need some help to get started. ;)
HMG has
  • - a wonderful help / documentation system
    - tons of samples; every HMG user learned HMG by these samples;
Nobody can read (and fully understand) whole help system by a single step; this isn't a tutorial, simply a reference guide.
so, good starting point is examining HMG samples.

Although, help system has a "tutorial" section ( under "Basic" ) and a wonderful tutorial samples set (under samples\basic).

More, if you like, you may visit my humble blog and take a glance at to Quick Start and Tutorial pages.

And please don't hesitate asking anything to our forum; you will find here a big people who racing to be helpful :arrow:

Happy HMG'ing :D

Hi, I can not run the application since I have Windows 7 64bit not let it run 16-bit applications.
for a good help minimally need the prg to compile with harbor and turn it into 32bit applications with the addition of few instructions possible.

Oi Nascimento,

Você quer saber como fazer um menu e como criar uma dll usando o MiniGui versão Extended ?
Se for, está no fórum errado.
