Using .NET Forms with ABL Windows : Handling form and window input

Handling form and window input

To handle input for .NET forms and ABL windows together in an ABL application, ABL supports two basic mechanisms that work with both forms and windows in common:
*A common WAIT-FOR statement syntax that can handle general event processing for both forms and windows, as well as ABL non-GUI events
*An ACTIVE-FORM system reference to detect input focus for both forms and windows
* Common event handling for forms and windows
* Common focus detection for forms and windows
