Hi. What is best aproach to zoom a window? I'm going to place some
userobjects onto the window
and I'like to have zoom capabilities. I know that datawindow has such
feature but am not using it.
Do I have to do it by calling resize function for every object on the
window? It's quite a lot to do;-)
Maybe there is some easier method.

Thanks in advance
Arek

Arek;

Just completed that feature for a major application released this year
that manages the Canada Pension database for all Canadians. There are 3,500
concurrent users on the system with a1 billion row DB! The Zoom facility was
extremely well received as there are various levels of hardware and MS
Windows being used by the various user areas.
The bad news is that you can NOT zoom a Window or a control. The good
news is that ALL DataWindows are zoomable! So the key to designing a
Zoomable application is to NOT use standard controls. Instead all controls
MUST be represented by a DataWindow and it's controls. Once you design your
application that way, all you have to do is set the "Zoom" property! In the
Pension application, the "Zoom" factor is stored in the Registry under the
user's criteria. So when they log on the next day, all dialogs are zoomed to
the last factor automatically!

About 50 lines of code in PB on a few ancestors!
For the rest of you ... try this in .NET or Java ----- yeah right ---
NOT!!!!!!!!

Hope this helps!

Don't you have problems with buttons, for example?
No way to set tab orders and there isn't any easy way
to enable/disable them.
