Same window in different sizes

Same window in different sizes

Same window in different sizes

Hello colleagues!

I have defined a window to be activated when the user press the F7 key:

CODE -->

  	FROM  11,33 TO 52,112;
	FONT 'Courier New',10;
	COLOR RGB(255,255,255, 137,70,70), RGB(0,0,0,  255,255,255) 

That works ok in both VFP development area and when the application (EXE) is distributed. There is a small problem:
When I execute in the VFP development area (PRG file) the result after pressing F7 key is:

And when the application (EXE file) is executed and the F7 key is pressed the result is:

Why is the window shows two different sizes?

Thank you,

RE: Same window in different sizes

Just a quick guess: The font set in _screen will define the size of a character and window size will correspond to that and not what font and size you specify for the window interior usage.

So try to set the font and fontsize you have in your IDE in the main.prg of your code, so at EXE runtime the same font and its metric is used.

Bye, Olaf.
