Help!

I used to build forms in Infomaker 5.0 and update the button scripts in PB
5.

however with IM6 and PB6 I get an error when I try to open the window.
Right now I build all my updates in IM and PB 5 then convert to 6.

Any advice?

Thx in advance

Jim Kamp

The error relates to open window failure due to:

Object dne
Ancestor deleted
Reference object deleted
object create in newer version of PB

Whats a formstyle and how do I use in IM?

Thx

See the manual 'Building IM styles and actions' that comes with PB5. In
PB6 it's a chapter in the manual 'Application Techniques'.
A formstyle is a form template that you build in PB, i.e. a window + menu.
You need some specific naming convention, but that is about the only
limitation. The IM user adds the pbl with your templates to their Style
Library in the environment painter. Now they can create new forms based on
your templates when they use the form painter. It is really quite neat
what you can do.

What kind of error are you getting?
Instead of using PB to modify IM forms, you should create a formstyle in PB
which you then use to create new IM forms.
