Graphical Screen Importing

After you have compiled and executed the program, you are ready to import. The compile and execute functions are available as separate commands in the menu bar or the Project toolbar. You can also right-click the source file in the workspace File view and click the Screen Import command.

Perform the screen import operation as follows:

  1. With the relevant program running, right-click in your screen to display the Import Screen pop-up menu. Make sure you click the mouse in the screen itself and not over a control on the screen.
  2. To capture the screen for import, select the Import Screen pop-up menu with the left mouse button.

    You may import multiple screens in a single execution. The results are all saved together in a single text file named import.out.

  3. Close the program that contains the screen(s) you just imported.

    The imported screen should now be represented in the workspace Structure view in a new program, from which it can be opened, modified as needed, saved, and have code generated for it. Multiple imported screens are opened cascade style in the Screen Designer.

  4. If you want to add the new import.out file to another program in the workspace Structure view, right-click the program node in the workspace, and select the Add Screen command from the pop-up menu. Select .out in the Files of type drop-down box. If necessary, use the Browse button to navigate to the desired import.out file. You can also move the imported screen to the program of your choice by clicking the imported screen in the workspace and dragging it to the desired program screen node.
