    I have a problem. I test my program on a Recon (WM5.0) and a Workabout (CE 4.0). The problem that I have with the Workabout is that there is a grey colored bar (about 20 pixels high) at the top of the screen which covers some of my input boxes.:BangHead::sign0148:

    Does anybody have a solution?:sign0085:

    This is the menu bar which on a Windows CE device, as opposed to a Pocket PC/Windows Mobile device, occupies the top part of the client area. If you have no menu items then you can remove the menu with FormLib otherwise you are likely to need a special version of your program with the screen laid out accordingly. There may be a way of identifying if you are running on a CE device but I don't know of one.

    Hi Agraham

    Thanks for the reply:sign0188:

    I will contact Psion and see if they cannot copy Windows Mobile on and get rid of Windows CE. There are too many forms that contain menus, so that route of adjusting the screens is not going to be practical. And also the screen does not look nice with the grey bar on top of the forms.
