A while ago (several months or maybe up to a year I seem to remember, a post appeared on the forums about how to get a seperte program running from within a ftn95 program u get but I can't seem to uncover it.
For example, how do you get say 'paint' to open at a certain point in a program, and is it possible to get it to open within the bounds of an existing window so that it can't be dragged away outside of it.
(A bit like having a child window set up within a main window, but the child window being the launched external app)

I also vaguely remember coming across an example somewhere in the documentation but I'm lost as to where that was too.

There are lots of ways but the first thing to try could be to call START_PROGRAM@ or START_PPROGRAM@. One waits the other does not wait.

Making it run within your own window? Off hand I don't know how to do that.
