Hiding the desktop

Hiding the desktop in Paradox Forms topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: desktop   Hiding desktop

I read a short article that says in order to not see the desktop, and only my forms, I need to use app.hide()

The problem is that when I try it, I get syntax errors.  I've searched through the boards and through the ObjectPal guide that I have, but I have not been able to find out exactly how to do this (what code and where)

I also cannot seem to find where in the Object Explorer it is indicated whether a form is a child or a dialog. 

I know this seems simple, but its very frustrating. 

Thank you for your help.

var

thisapp application

endvar

now you can treat the whole paradox window like a giant form

thisapp.hide(),  thisapp.show(), etc

the modal/dialog option is in Window Properties, not Object Explorer.. same right-click, different option

Thank you

The problem was that I had it set up as a child instead of a dialog. 

Also, missed declaring the var.

Once you told me where to find that and change it, it worked perfectly.

Thanks again.
