I was recently pointed out a problem. From an application that opens a database, ie: form1, then this form is asked to print either the form on the screen or another related form, IF you select ALL in the printer setup window you get not only the original form but numerous blank pages after it. (I'm using the runtime module)

Also is there a way to get rid of the File...Edit..View.. etc buttons at the top left of the screen?

The first is really a problem for me, the other could wait.

Thanks to anyone that can help.

When you develop the forms, use the "form/properties/printer" to disallow the printer setup dialog box. This will prevent the user from selecting "all". Check the length of your form. If it is too long, blank pages could print.

As far as the "file edit" etc, I don't think that there is any way to hide them unless, in windows, you set the text color to be the same as th ewindow color. This would be for all windows, not just alpha.
