In graphical mode it is possible to add graphical elements. So if you have old Clipper code that works in text mode, by adding a few lines of code you can update the application to look like a GUI application.

That screenshot is just to hide the teletubbies...?

Yes, but the "teletubbies" is windows form, not the console one.! 8-)


Actually, my screenshot is taken from here: https://jonlennartaasenden.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/build-your-own-delphi-based-operative-system/
Which there, the main topic is about running delphi application in DOS, so there are tools to emulate windows environment in DOS

Just read through the comments on that site. Only the non visual part seemed to be working.

... and on top of that, it's based on DWPL, and for DWPL you need the original borland-sources, they are copied into the directory and the patched (with a binary patching tool).
... so you have to do that, then compare the patched sources and the find a solution without copyrighted units in fpc ... sounds like fun ... ;)

That is actually the desired behaviour - for me at least, when using the fpGUI UIDesigner.
