1 - Introduction

In this lesson we are going to learn how to develop large applications using HarbourPWCT (Part 2)

In this part of our lesson we will divide our application into two source files

1 - Main.SSF Contains the main window

2 - Sub.SSF contains the welcome class

we will add a new step to our goal in Main.SSF to call the source file (Sub.PRG)

to do this we will use the component (Set procedure to)

the source file (Sub.PRG) is a source code file generated from (Sub.SSF)

(Sub.SSF) is a (Server Extension)

to set (Sub.SSF) as (Server Extension)

1 - open Sub.SSF

2 - open Server Units Window

3 - Goto compile tab

4 - set checkbox (Server Extension) On

2 - Implementation Steps

Fig. (1) Goal Desginer - Steps Tree

Select the step (The First Step)

We will start now new interaction process to generate new steps to our steps tree.

The slow way (Using Mouse):

                1 - Click Interact to open the components browser

                2 - Select the domain (Structure Programming)

                3 - Select the component (Set Procedure To)

The fast way (Using Keyboard shortcuts):

                1 - Get the component using its name by typing (Set Procedure To)

                Note : Stop typing when you see the required component is selected

After selecting the component click Ok or press ENTER
