Excerpt of article text...

This month we'll build the user interface needed to enter and change game information. The User Interface (UI) for this is a little different than the one we built for teams since only a single game at a time will be displayed. Starting with this issue I'll be using REALbasic 5 for all these examples.

To get started, open the softball.rb project (available from the REALbasic Developer Web Site).


First we will enhance our menu to allow access to our windows. To do this, add a menu header called "Database" with menu items "Teams" and "Games". Open the app object and add menu handlers for these two menu items. In the Teams menu handler, type wTeam.Show. In the Games menu handler, enter wGame.Show.

Game Window

Now, create a new window, wGame, and title it "Games". Drag over six StaticText controls, six EditField controls, three PopupMenu controls, four PushButton controls and one DataControl. Arrange and name them to look like figure 1.
