Paradox 70 Display Problems

We are in the process of converting from Pdox50 to Pdox70 for NT and
are wondering if anyone can shed light on the problems. When a picture
format is set on an edit field (not tied to a table) and you run the
form, changing the data in the field and moving off of the field causes
the font to change from 8pt normal to 10pt bold (Arial). If we take the
picture clause off, it works fine.

        Also, when we are running a dialog box for choosing report criteria,
and the data is processing (queries), the button we press to start the
whole process disappears and is replaced by a white rectangle.
This only seems to happen on NT machines (Pdox70 & Pdox50).

These problems are not big ones, but annoying nonetheless.

NT paints forms differently than does Win95.  There is a document on the MS website called - Making sure Win95 apps work in NT. One way to get past this problem may be to re-create teh form on teh NT machine.  Thi seems to work for Delphi & C++ Builder (other Borland products).  Yes, I know that was pretty high level, but what do you expect for 20 points?

Any questions, please add a comment.
