XFLOGM - Dialog Management
1.0 is now superseded by XFLOGM 2.0, which is part of
Library. You can still download XFLOGM 1.0 from this page or as a part of
Compaq ships a module
DFLOGM, with source available also. DFLOGM serves as a wrapper for dialog
handling in all types of applications, simplifying the programming by enabling
that handling code is placed in a single routine and reducing the number of
setting flags (such as DLG_STATE). However, with DFLOGM you can't obtain full
functionality that you could with a Win32-handled dialog; the most frequent
requirements from users were handling of controls' colors and context help.
version, renamed to XFLOGM.f90, adds the following functionality:
DLG_BKCOLOR property for static text, group boxes, push buttons, check
boxes, and radio buttons.
for all controls (wrapper around ShowWindow)
for buttons and static controls, enabling bitmaps attached to buttons and
bitmaps or icons attached to static controls.
which enables the library user to register a callback for either F1 key or
"context help" mouse click. The usage is similar to DlgSetSub.
owner-drawn static controls (DLG_DRAWITEM) callback.
argument added to DlgModal.
Improved behaviour of
dialogs with "Center" style.
bug introduced (and later fixed) by Compaq with mis-parsing of dialogs
written in non-Western scripts.
support for tabbed dialogs. See Reference²
DlgSetTitle from newer versions is reintroduced. Compaq's limitation of
65535 on scrollbar is fixed.³
now optionally passes control's context help ID (IDH_* constant from
resource.hm). Thanks to Greg Charlton who pointed out this useful
feature and submitted the code.
XFLOGM now links against any version of DFLOGM.lib of CVF 6.0 or newer.
If you have downloaded earlier version of XFLOGM (before March 10), but have CVF6.5 or newer,
please delete DFLOGM.lib from your project and source directory (otherwise,
link error "LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _DLGDOMODAL@24"
occurs). If you have CVF 5.0, you still need to link against a DFLOGM.lib
from CVF 6.0.
