I have a database, Small mailing list whose .Initialize procedure contains just one statement:
openform "Test Form"
It is not open.
I have a second database, TestBed, from which I run this procedure:
local mfg_filnam, mfg_winnam
mfg_filnam = info("databasename")
mfg_winnam = info("windowname")
openfile "Small mailing list"
message "TestBed init completed"
When Small mailing list opens, its .Init procedure is not triggered until after the “TestBed init completed” message appears. This is a bother because I want the process to end up with the * mfg_winnam* window on top but I always end up with the “Test Form” window on top. Is this expected behaviour?
Some of you will be aware that my desktop Mac is seriously neurotic. This has become so annoying that, in desperation, I’ve bought a Macbook Pro to double-check all peculiar behaviour. It does the same as described above. If it’s also off its trolley, I’m going to be seriously annoyed.
