I've been programming my 7000 using v2.1.1.4 and I find I need smaller buttons. When I go to 'help' it says if I want to change the size of a button, just go to 'properties' and change the size. I find the dimension tab but I can't change any of the sizes...the position number changes when I drag it but it won't allow me to move it in the number blocks, either. Why is that? Can't change the color either, and it says I can in 'help'.

Whats up with that program?

Curious!

You can change a button's size only if there are no images in the button. If there are images, then the button's/panel's size is controlled by the image size. You will need to save the images to the hard disk, edit, and reload them to change the size.

You will find that you will most likely need to pick up image editing as well to develop really nice looking PCFs. Some of us use Paintshop Pro, some use Photoshop, some use CorelDraw, other use GIMP, LviewPro, or MSPaint.exe. Different tools have diffenrent complexities and different prices as well as features.

Thanks, Lyndel, I understand exactly. So is the box that shows up around the button automatically generated? Seems like the box could be shrunk some and make it easier to fit on the screen.

I know how to do all that in photoshop, but I'm not too excited about going through the learning curve again, if you know what I mean.

Thanks again!

The box is automatically generated to be the same size as the image on the button.

If it looks bigger than the image, that does not matter. You cannot click on the transparent part of the image. You can put two buttons closer to each other with the transparent part of "boxes" overlapping if you want to.
