- Computing the Size of an Embedded Dialog
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Computing the Size of an Embedded Dialog.xml
This script demonstrates how the size of a parent dialog box can be automatically calculated with the UI_INFO_DLG_DEF_CLIENT_HEIGHT()and UI_INFO_DLG_DEF_CLIENT_WIDTH()functions so that the embedded dialog box that it contains can be displayed correctly, without clipping any portion of the embedded dialog box. This statement creates some content for the embedded list box.

- Making Statements Conditional
/documentation/pages/Guides/Xbasic/Making Statements Conditional.xml
The most common and useful conditional statement in the Xbasic language uses the IF ... THEN ... ELSE ... END IF syntax. The statement begins by testing whether an expression is True (evaluates to .T.). If the expression is True, the Application Server executes the statement after the THEN clause. If the expression is False (.F.), the Application Server executes the statement after the ELSE clause.
The following example uses the DATE() function to return the current date. It then uses the CDOW() function to determine if the current day is "Saturday".

- Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box.xml
While Xdialog does a pretty good job of spacing out the controls you define in a logical way, you will typically want to tweak the default layout of a dialog box. The controls on an Xdialog are laid out in much the same way as text is laid out in a document that you create on your word processor (actually a word processor that does not have automatic word-wrap). In a word processor, the characters appear on the line, starting at the left and moving to the right until you press Enter to move to the next line (remember, we are talking about a pretty lame word processor that does not have an automatic word-wrap feature). Then, text appears on the next line until you press Enter to move to the third line and so on. You can line up columns of text in your word processor by using the Tab key.
