On clicking menu option open console windows and run console procedure with full screen and exit from this it should go to GUI main menu window. Tell me for Harbour only not XHARBOUR

Hi Manoj ( if your name is that )

Welcome aboard :)

Until experts come and help you, here you will find a little hint for building console application via HMG.

Not programming details, but only about building process.

I hope it will give you some idea :idea:

Happy HMG'ing :D

When you build mixed mode app, console open first. So it will be difficult to realize your idea, I think.

First of All thanks to all

As per your guide line I started to make a mixed GUI-CONSOLE test application. In which I started application with a GUI Testing Window in which when I click on Create a New Firm option I want to start console window procedure. It runs but it is minimized when I open minimized console window and give input and I want to return GUI main window. It goes but it does not change screen. I want that when I click option It activate console window & hide GUI Window and when it returns from console windows Display GUI Window. which is not working. I compile this as

call c:\hmg.3.0.22\build.bat /CI TEST.PRG COMPADD.PRG

I am attaching both prgs

Please Help

Are you sure that mixed-mode is a good way for both learning and project development :?

Happy HMG'ing :D

Definitely you don't need neither Console /Mixed mode, terminal drivers nor low-level acrobatics;

GUI always better than CUI, not only by appearance, by programming efforts too :arrow:

And HMG is wonderful 8-)

Happy HMG'ing :D

First of all I am very thankful to you for that you have read my code and give me a good example and I also agree to you for that GUI is better than CUI. But I have to convert my old big clipper application option to option into GUI because my application is very big and I want to present in market immediately because there are very competetion in market and I want to show in market that I am working to convert it into GUI and it's also give me self confidence.

So in starting please help me for mixed application. Later target is fully GUI.

Sorry, but I should to repeat :

The better way is not continue ( even partially as you want to realize ) to old ways for converting old applications;

better way is "burn the ships" and directly begin to the ultimate way ( no matter how big your project ); :arrow:

only requirement is a bit patience ;)

And please don't hesitate asking anything; while we know the answer, we will happy to help.

Moreover, you can communicate with me directly.

Viva HMG and HMG friendship :D
