Shellwindow?!
« on: October 10, 2003, 12:59:29 pm »
Hi.

I build Lazarus under Window 2000.

Started Lazarus, build a small demo app and run it.

Everytime i start the app a shell window appears and after that the application window.
Is there an option to hide the shell window or is this "by design"?

TIA

Marc

I guess it is "by design" for now. It is most used for debugging output, warnings etc.

But if one wants to use Freepascal/Lazarus in a real world app this is a real show stopper. :(

I supose it is by design, but no real show stopper, because it is easy to turn this off.

Include {$apptype gui} in your main program or compile with -WG. You can set this option in the other tab of the compiler options. The shellwindow wil not be shown.
