If the controls are not displayed in the toolbar adjust the window size until they are displayed or click and drag the toolbar handle to reposition the control toolbar .
If a wallpaper is present it will be displayed. The wallpaper image file can be
either a Windows bitmap or Jpeg file. If both are available the bitmap takes precedent.
If neither is present the wallpaper will be a gray background by default. The default background
color can be changed by a command in the ForthForm.cfg file e.g. WHITE to BackgroundColor. Double click
anywhere in the wallpaper to select a different image for the background.
N.B From Release 2.0 ForthForm no longer displays a background image by default. However, the facility is there for a user to recompile the system with image support.
The other window, if enabled from "Set Preferences" in the "Options" menu, shown is the Monitor window. The Monitor window displays a mini replica of the current form and is used to set
the position of the compiled form on screen. The "List of forms" combobox displays a list of
all open forms and allows any form to be selected as the active form.
