Form as background

Betrachter84Betrachter84 Member Posts: 62
Hi there

Is it possible to create a form an use this as background in NAV? This form should have all capabilities of any other form. Actually it would be enough if this form was maximized and could not be closed and would stay in the background allways.

But if i minimize any form the "background"-form minimizes as well.... is there a solution?

thanks!

    This blog posting could get you started: http://dynamicsuser.net/blogs/waldo/arc ... -into.aspx

    It uses a form with these properties set:
    Borderstyle: None
    CaptionBar: None
    Mimizable: No
    Maximizable: No
    Sizeable: No
    Editable: No
    Xpos: 0
    Ypos: 0

    and runs this form in Codeunit 1, in the CompanyOpen function like this: IF GUIALLOWED THEN FORM.RUN(FORM::"Database Info");

    You can't prevent it from closing though.

    You can prevent it... or it looks like you prevent it - just use Timer automation when closing the form, enable the timer with some small period and open the form again in the trigger. When you close the first form, another will popup...

    Try adding "EXIT(FALSE);" to OnQueryCloseForm.

    Please, DO NOT DO IT! You will not be able to close the client correctly!!!

    Thanks for the reply's, i found some kind of middleway.

    I set the properties like Luc Van Dyck suggested and added a "Close" button to the from. If the button is hit the boolean variable "AllowClosing" is set to true which makes the code

    IF AllowClosing THEN
    EXIT(TRUE)
    ELSE EXIT(FALSE);

    on the OnQueryCloseForm-Trigger allowing the exit request.

    This way i achieved my goal to prevent the form from being closed by "ESC".

    By the way is there a possibility to check if the closing request origins from a user or the system (while client closing)?

    No, you can't check that.
