FBtoC inherits many names and practices best described as quaint. A novice must find it hard to learn that: appearance button 1,,,,,, @r, _kControlEditUnicodeTextProc is a common replacement for the obsolete 'edit field', and that: poke long event - 8, 30 requests an upper bound of 0.5 s for the 'HandleEvents' statement's return time. This traditional but oblique code still works in FBtoC. Robert P.
