** How to hide the Main VFP Screen.

** 1. Add the following code in your Form suitably.
   _SCREEN.Visible = .F.
** 2. set in the forms property sheet...(not thro code)
   .ShowWindow = 2
   .MDIform = .f.
** 3. All other forms called from this form,
   .ShowWindow = 1

** 4. Note that if the _screen is OFF, then when you do a PrintPreview, remeber to set _screenVisible = .t. before the REPORT FORM... syntax and reset it to false after the preview. Otherwise, the native PrintPreview by VFP which is always to SCREEN will not show up.

** 5. Add "SCREEN=OFF" in the CONFIG.FPW. Adding this will ensure, even the momentary flicker by the VFP screen appearing and then disappearing will go. (However, this is not a must, if the flickering can be accepted).
