Viewing Text File

Question:
How can I view and print a text file in PB5-16? I don't need to edit.

Answer:
Use the FileOpen, FileRead and FileClose commands to read you text file. I would suggest reading using LineMode then either concatenating the text into a multiline edit or RTF control. If you want to do this non-visually then I would suggest using an external datawindow setup to display rows of text. Then in your script you could create a datastore, assign you external datawindow to the datastore, read the file and print it with out the user ever seeing it happen.

You can build a simple non visual object to do the task so that you can use it over and over again.
