    Extended Fields.

    In the MSSQL DB there are extended fields. See Vincent's blog.

    These are mad cool, and very useful, particularly in conjunction with "database Documentation tools" like THIS ONE.

    Re: Textbox Suggestion.

    The magic is you have to set FontPointHeight BEFORE the label is set, after that it just works even with fw_bold.
  6. Re: Best way of reindexing the embedded database?

    there is a REINDEX.EXE in the DF20\bin folder. I wonder what that does, and how long it's been there. well since 19.0 at least.

    Re: Textbox Suggestion.

    well, practically, it auto-sizes just fine, as long as the Fontsize is set before the label.

    Re: Textbox Suggestion.

    the code you posted, is not the code I posted. Your code has "Set Size" explicitly. Mine does not.

    Setting the size in the studio by dragging the corners makes some strange size numbers, and...

  14. Re: Does anyone know how to move the mouse from DF code?

    Yep. That's exactly what I really needed.

    I needed it yesterday, so I had the other programmer in my office add it to our normal DotNet DLL instead because he thinks in c#.

    What's wrong with annoying the user?

    When I went down this rabbit hole, it seemed like nudging the mouse was the least intrusive way of doing this, as that's how the users keep the stupid...
