Contents of the README.1ST file
The following files should be distributed with the FOG Window Library:
DEMO EXE -- Pre-compiled Demo program
DEMO PRG -- The source code to the FOG Window Demo
DEMO_HLP DBF -- The Demo help database
FOG_WIN LIB -- The FOG Window Library
FOG_WIN TXT -- The FOG Window Reference Manual
W_HELP DBF -- Sample FOG Window Help System database
Notice: This Library is currently distributed as ShareWare. If you
wish to use it indefinately please register your copy.
Basic Registration: $35
-includes no royalties and inexpensive
upgrade path for future versions.
Developer's Registration: $75
-includes full source code to the FOG Window
The Library has been written mostly in Clipper '87, however some functions
have been optimized using C. Which functions are written in C are not
important for you program development.
If you need specific information about how certain modules or functions
work, you may register as a Developer. This will provide you with
all the Clipper and C function's code which is fully documented. Once
Registered, you may freely taylor it to your specific needs.
The W_HELP files are included so that you can keep them as a template
for the expected file format for any applications help database. An
application may use a different file name if desired (see Reference
You may notice the Demo program uses a setup_config function. This
uses variables for defining the systems colors. This does not mean
the FOG Window functions need to be passed colors via variables. You
can 'hard code' Clipper colors into function calls similarly to the
Clipper setcolor() function.
However, using variables makes it very easy to change the color
scheme globally for an application. This also allows you to use
.mem files to save/change an applications configuration. A utility
for configuring FOG Window applications is available upon request.
Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions or comments.
Thanks for your support.
