The QuickWin User Interface

All QuickWin applications create an application or frame window; child windows are optional. Fortran Standard Graphics applications and Fortran QuickWin applications have these general characteristics:
  • Window contents can be copied as bitmaps or text to the Clipboard for printing or pasting to other applications. In Fortran QuickWin applications, any portion of the window can be selected and copied.
  • Vertical and horizontal scroll bars appear automatically, if needed.
  • The base name of the application's .EXE file appears in the window's title bar.
  • Closing the application window terminates the program.
In addition, the Fortran QuickWin application has a status bar and menu bar. The status bar at the bottom of the window reports the current status of the window program (for example, running or input pending).
