Remarks

The main purpose of this class is to provide a controllable preview window to other classes in _reports.vcx. Therefore this dialog box has no button to load a new file (though you can add one in a subclass) and it defaults to read only for its edit box.

To use,drop the class on a project or, from the Component Gallery Item shortcut menu, select Add to Project. When you drop the class on a project, you can choose between adding the class, creating a subclass, or creating a form. When you choose Create a new form from the selected class, Visual FoxPro opens a builder so you can specify the name of the form, then creates and opens the form in the Form Designer.

See Guidelines for Using Visual FoxPro Foundation Classesfor more information on using foundation classes.
