Roy,

<< Its this terminology thing again. When I originally asked for it my brain
was thinking table properties since that's what I spend most of my time in
EDBManager playing with. As is common in the IT world you have superbly
delivered what was asked for, not what I wanted <vbg>.

Can I put in another request (if you have any Fkeys left over) for one to
take me back to the table properties. >>

I'll see if I can come up with a scheme that allows for special hotkeys for
each object.

Sorry to be a nuisance.


I bet you wish you could just write the engine and forget the UI. If so I have sympathy since I'm still working my way through the TMS controls finding out where and how to set the colours so I can allow the users to skin the app. There are a few where their stylers alter the font as well as the colours - great when you have a very carefully designed form.

Roy,

Not at all.  The utilities are part of the product, so they need just as
much attention.  I'm just not quite as good with the UI design and
development.  I got luck with DBISAM because it was simple. Smiley

Well, I think that the EDB Manager UI is finally starting to settle down a
bit and stabilize.  It's working pretty well now, so as long as I don't
touch anything ever again, things should be fine. Smiley

If you ever need help you have a raft of people here who spend more time on UI than anything else.

Totally disagree - DBSys was simple, elegant and very good at what it did. It helped that DBISAM was a nice user friendly product and much more suited to the PC style of development. I do agree though that its a lot simpler than ElevateDB, especially measured in the hair pulling out stakes <vbg>

Hmm, I think I'll try that approach with a few apps; but being marketing savvy I'll call it product stabilisation Smiley

How about "product and personnel stabilization plan" ? Smiley
