Tiny Window

I want to implement a tiny window in my application, one that you typically
invoke via the menu-option Window -Toolbar. It must be floating, not
restricted to the client area of the controlling form. It has a tiny
close-button on the right-hand corner. How do I implement this?

tool.FormBorder Style = FormBorderStyle .FixedToolWindo w;
tool.Text = "Tool";

tool.Size = new Size(60, 80);

Application.Run (form);

Hi,

Try creating a new Form and setting the FormBorderStyle property to
FixedToolWindow or SizableToolWind ow.

In an event handler for a Button.Click event, for example, open your Form:

private void button1_Click(o bject sender, EventArgs e)
{
TinyForm form = new TinyForm();
form.Show(this) ;
}

Hello, I'm not yet a python programmer but a python user. I faced a problem with tiny fonts in a wxPython app on a GNU/Debian system. Under Gentoo Linux the fonts are displayed in a normal readable size. Only on that Debian system fonts in the whole app are rather tiny. I spend quite a long time googling for a solution and found several hints on font problem issues in wxPython but none fitted to that mentioned above. Does anybody has a...

Hello, two days ago I stumbled across a very strange problem that came up when we were printing tiny double numbers as strings and trying to read them on another place. This is part of an object serialisation framework that cannot be done in binary format currently, so please no comments about this ,-)) It took quite some time to shrink down the problem but it looks like that C++ does not behave well in regards to very tiny numbers.

I'm looking for information on building a tiny/small/minimalist/ vanilla python interpreter. One that implements the core language and a few of the key modules but isn't tied to any specific operating system. I guess I'm asking for the smallest subset of the standard Python source code files that is necessary to get a working interpreter using a plain C compiler. Is this even possible? If so, has someone done it already? I've
