Specifying WINDOW position and size

With Genero BDL in GUI mode, window position and sizes are ignored; in TUI mode, window position and sizes are respected.

When writing a program for TUI mode, the windows can be created with the OPEN WINDOW name AT x,y instruction, specifying an position on the screen; sometimes even the width and height of the window is specified, for example when you don't use a form to create the window. Window position and size is allowed by Genero Business Development Language for TUI mode applications.

However, the window position and sizes are ignored in GUI mode. In GUI mode, the window position is defined by the window manager, and the size adapts to the form displayed. In this mode, the preferred way to display application forms is to use the OPEN WINDOW name WITH FORM instruction.
