    Question Unanswered: Paradox Form Open to 'Fit Width'

    Hi - this my first post so hi out there! I am no db expert although I have been using Paradox for years (are there any other db programs out there that can open multiple db's at the same time?). This is not my reason for posting but if you know of a good alternative please let me know.

    Question: I use a number of forms to view and enter data, however each time I start Paradox or 'open' a form it appear in 100% view mode. I then have to go into the 'view' menu and click 'Fit Width'. Can anyone help me do this automatically? I can't find anywhere in properties or settings to set the default 'open' size.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    You can simply insert in the open method of the form:

    dodefault
    self.menuaction(MenuPropertiesZoomBestFit)

    bye!
    The only failure is not trying to do it.

    Thanks Shores
    Works a treat and so simple, wonderful after all these years of setting the page zoom through the menu. Must learn a bit of the tech stuff.
    Thanks again
