Does anyone know how to do this ?

Can I create a form or report so that it opens at the size and position
of my choice. I want users of my simple executable application to get a
good layout first time, without having to resize and reposition the
windows.

I hope it's simple and I've just missed something, if so will someone
please enlighten me.

Thanks.

You have no control over this in Infomaker 5.0. In InfoMaker 6.0, if
you know Powerbuilder, you can change the default opening style in the
class library IMSTYLE6.PBL but your changes will be overwritten if you
upgrade to 6.0.01 or 02 with a new IMSTYLE6.PBL if you're not careful.

Infomaker automatically expands forms and reports to the full screen size.
If you are talking PB, you can set the position and size of objects at
runtime.
