Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

      He's using Vista, not XP so SP3 is not the cause.

            If "Botbank" is text, experiment with the font size. If it is an image, experiment with the image size.

              I will try to change the image (the whole top is an image, except for the buttons (Overzicht etc...)

              but i notice that the buttons are drawn over the title bar of the containing window as well so i doubt that will change anything..

              thanx anyway and i'll report

                While you are at it, see what happens if you run the form restored--that is, NOT maximized--in the A5 window.

                    Re: bug in graphical interface ?

                    Is this a solution? Does the improvement persist when the form is no longer in design mode?

                              This is not the place to post a bug report. You need to do that in alpha5v9.

                              Sometimes Alpha personnel show up and mostly they don't. If someone else has seen what you have and know the fix for it, they will help you.

                              In my mind, you need to send a bug report with a portion of your program where they can see the problem.
