Live Window WYSIWYG Design and PROPs Reflection
MAY 15,2020
This week Carl Barnes will be showing you tips about using the Clarion Window Design. The Preview feature actually writes you a Clarion program using your Window. Sometimes your window causes the preview to fail and shows an error message. It is easy to find the cause of your problems.

A hidden powerful feature is an include file (WindowPreviewer.INC) that lets you insert your own code to affect the preview. Carl will show his WndPreview class that allows you many runtime features in your preview window. You can view the list of controls, unhide or enable controls, inspect their properties (PROP), view LIST Format properties (PROPLIST), resize controls, change LIST Formats (size columns). This class can also add these features to your live program to aid in development.

[Note: If the Previewer always does nothing (no preview, no message) you probably need to install .Net 2.0 and 3.5. They are no longer included with Windows 10. ]

They are:

1. How would I have done that?
2. Oh crap now I have to do that?
3. My clients have my application deployed SQL databases that have to be converted.
4. My clients have a bunch of SQL databases and I want to make more money by selling this to them

So hope that you will consider spending the time either Live or on a Replay. The entire 250+ slide deck is posted above. I'll be ONLY presenting 40+ slides from that deck.
