Display files are converted one at a time using the "Convert" button on the menu ribbon within the visual designer.
Simply enter the location of the green screen display file, select a conversion theme and click "Convert".
Selecting and adjusting a theme is the key issue to a conversion project. Not only does the theme control the style/color of the panels, subfile grids, buttons and font, but it also allows the conversion process to make some intelligent decisions such as:
- Search for ". . . :" and replace it with spaces (removing the "green screen" look of your screens)
- Search for "(Y/N)" followed by a 1A 1A input field and convert the field to a checkbox
- Search for an input field with a particular edit word and convert to a date field
