1. Ctrl+Spacebar Displays Lookup Table When users press CTRl-SPACEBAR to display a lookup table, remember to let them know that they can use CTRL-Q to locate a value. This is an interactive feature that can greatly enhance the user's perception of your application.

2. Design Your Apps to Look Like Windows Design your forms using the default Windows color scheme. Your applications will look more professional and consistent with the predesigned Windows color schemes and various themes. I've seen WAY too many Paradox applications where the developer has used too many background colors on forms. Sometimes the use of a few nice colors for different areas of an application works well, most of the time it doesn't. I'm not saying don't add color, I'm just saying be tasteful. Some of the Paradox applications I've seen look HORRIBLE!

3. Objects On a Form Have Containership Hierarchy You can alter the path of objects by moving objects around in the containership hierarchy. Move objects on the same level by selecting Format | Order | Bring to Front and Format | Order | Send to Back.

5. Paradox's Autofill Feature Remember, autofill is a great feature that you should promote to your users. To automatically fill in a date field with today's date, for example, just press the SPACEBAR a couple of times. Make sure you add this type of help to any manuals or help files you develop for your application. Autofill works with Date, Time, Timestamp, and Logical fields and does not require a picture statement.

6. Rename Many Objects Quickly with the Object Tree If you need to rename many objects one right after the other, use the Object Tree. By selecting and inspecting each object on the Object Tree, you can quickly rename many objects.

7. Study Apps and Build Great Forms! The user interface is the first element of your application that a user sees. Because first impressions are important, the user interface carries more weight than any other part of your application. It deserves much planning and effort. Spend time just reviewing the applications on your computer. The more time you spend looking at various application user interfaces, the better your forms, reports, and applications will look.

9. WinStyles.ft Style Sheet

This is the default style sheet that ships with Paradox 10 and 11+. It's a nice clean style sheet so I'm making it available here for Paradox 9 and earlier users who wish to use it.
