Yes.

Any TurboVision tutorial will do, like: http://www.baskent.edu.tr/~tkaracay/etudio/ders/prg/pascal/PasHTM3/pas/pasl3007.html

Note for modern users FreeVision has a very steep learning curve!!!
For old hands it is still easy.... O:-)

E.g.: Last week someone filed a bug report (and insulted Florian) because he did not understand the streams in FreeVision: these are completely different from the current streams, rely on old TP syntax for old school object Pascal (TP5.5+)completely different from the streams derived from the streams in classes.pas. That was a real Moron. Much worse than my comics... <grumpy  >:D >:D>
Anyway: try the tutorial or otherwise examine the source of the FV demo program.
If you can't figure it out, report back.

Anyway: good luck! (I may be able to help, reluctantly)

inline variables like in D10.3 are a bit like Brexit: if you are given the wrong information it sounds like a good idea. Every kid loves candy, but it makes you fat and your teeth will disappear.

Good judgement is the result of experience … Experience is the result of bad judgement.

Well.... Why not examine the examples then.... Silly... The FV examples should be enough.

freevision menus are drop down menus just like GUI menus if thats not what you want there are 2 options create a dialog with a bunch of buttons that can run code when pressed (enter presses them) or go crt and write your own, now that I'm thinking about it I have somewhere my crt menu library from my school days. I'll see if I can dig it up and modernize it a bit for you.

Oh here is the only official documentation I know off
