A while ago I was trying to figure out why the printed text in my
"About..." dialog's user item was not showing up. Here's the solution for
interested bodies:


The 'bug' was the position of my COORDINATE WINDOW statement. When I called
my dialog the first time, it was prior to my COORDINATE WINDOW statement,
so my text was not being drawn in the proper position with the PRINT%
statement:

   FN ShowAboutDialog
   COORDINATE WINDOW
   WINDOW #1, blah, blah, blah

Calling my dialog after the COORDINATE WINDOW statement solved the problem:

   COORDINATE WINDOW
   FN ShowAboutDialog
   WINDOW #1, blah, blah, blah


I sure hope that this solution will save someone some time sometime soon.

Cheers!
