SIMON'S MENU GENERATOR PROGRAM IS BASED ON SEVERAL OTHER PUBLIC DOMAIN DBASE
PROGRAMS AS FOLLOWS:

OPTMENU BY D.L. RANEY
COLOR3P - AUTHOR UNKNOWN
MENUGEN BY LUIS A. CASTRO

SMG51 is a DBASE III PLUS menu generator. It will check to see if a color card

or monochrome card is installed in your PC. If it finds a color card you will

be presented with the option of installing color options for your menu.


The next screen (or first screen if a mono card is installed) will ask for the

name of the program to be generated. The current directory will be checked to

make sure that the filename plus the extension of .PRG does not already exist.

If it exists you will be asked if you want to overwrite the existing file or

quit. If you choose overwrite,the data in the old file will be destroyed.




You will then need to fill in your menu headings,type and items. If you

select the Main Menu option, the code generated will exit to your system when

the exit option is selected. If you do not select the Main Menu option the

code generated will issue a return at the exit option which will take you

back to the program that called the menu.

** DO NOT ENTER EXIT AS AN OPTION - IT WILL BE ADDED AUTOMATICALLY TO YOUR

MENU AS THE LAST MENU ITEM. ***


If you select to have an optional message you will be prompted to enter the

text for the message to be displayed when the appropriate menu item is

highlighted. You may enter up to 40 characters as a message. The Menu Item

itself may be up to 30 characters.


Next you will be asked for the program to run when the menu item is

selected. This may be any allowable Dbase program or procedure. The "Do "

command will automatically be added when the code is generated.


You may enter up to 20 Menu Items. If you do not need 20 items then just

enter a carriage return after you have entered all the necessary information

for the Menu Items that you need in your program. The program will stop input

when it reads the carriage return as a menu choice (or the max of 20 items

whichever comes first).


After a few seconds the code will be generated and you will be offered the

option of running the program again or of ending the program.


I hope that some of you may be able to use this program. You may leave

messages for me on the Pee-Dee Exchange BBS in Florence,SC 803-393-7399

up 24 hours a day.
