> Hey guys, some of you might think this is a dumn question, but it is kind of a "grass is always greener..." one. I have video tutorials that I downloaded when I first started with VFP and I started watching again today. If it makes a difference to my answer they were videos by Craig Bailey. After seeing the interface on his video I am now wondering if I can make mine cool like that. The biggest differences I can see is the tab buttons at the bottom of both the command window and the workarea to switch to "Document View, Properties, Data Session" and open forms/tables respectively. Is this a feature I have to download some where or what? My screen can seem to get pretty cluttered sometimes and I think this would probably help out a bit. Thanks again for taking your time to help me out with my questions,

This is the Dockable feature of VFP 9, what you need to do is open the appropriate windows:

So the DataSession window, Properties window, make sure that they are set to Dockable, right mouse on the title bar to show this menu.
You then need to dock the command window to the right hand side of the main foxpro window, then drag the other windows one at a time to the caption bar of the docked window, this should then give you the tabs at the bottom.

Hope this helps
