|AGI1122||Ok the question I have is, I have a window set up and it works just fine with the Display statement. The thing is though I would rather use a text resource to display the text that should be in the window. This would make it a little easier to make windows if it used the text resources instead of the Display command. I don't seem to know how to make it use the text from the text resource which has been bugging me.|
|AGI1122||Well I have figured out how to access the text resources and then print them in the message box. The only thing is I don't know how to dispose of the window once I am done with it, it just stays on the screen and won't go away. I have tried WindowDispose but I can't seem to get it to work.|
I've made a little demo for you of an About Box. To test it, download it:|
I updated the Event class with a getEvent().
I updated the Control class.
I created an Icon control from the Control class.
I create the Window, draw the Icon/text
I wait for an event.
I destroy the window.
The end ;D

Whoops. It's actually at:|
|AGI1122||Thanks this should hopefully help me out with the windows. :)|
|AGI1122||Am I correct in thinking that the controls can be used to either display a view in the message window and to display text buttons in the window?|
|Brian_Provinciano||The control classes have a "type" property. If the type is 1, it's a button (text with a border), if it's 4, it's an icon (a view), 6 is a list box, and so on. Check out the FreeSCI docs for more info, there's a whole page on it.|
|AGI1122||Ok, thanks. I will check out the FreeSCI page to learn more about this stuff.|
