> > 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,

I tried setting them to dockable, but there aren't any buttons. I am able to dock them all to one side of the string and adjust their sizes but they are all still visible. Is there another function that I need to enable or do I just simply not have the appropriate feature?
