I have two database tables that contain DOS character mode screen definitions. I am looking for opions of the best methods to use to create a GUI form 80x24 Col/Row, with text fields, and F1 thru F12 buttoms. No other GUI objects are needed.
The first table contains the screen master data, eq: screen name, description, columns(80), rows(24), number of objects (all text fields).
The second table contains details about each object on the screen, using a primary key constraint linked back to the screen master. Each object record has column/row where the object is to appear on the screen, the lenght, data type, color, label-value, label-colrow, and other misc info.
