Using the About menu?

Postby drpitcairn » Mon Aug 25, 2014 4:07 pm

I have a project I put together a year or more ago, and when I create a standalone, there appears a menu with the app name and below that is "about." When I select that item up comes a graphic that I apparently made at that time, but for the life of me, can't remember how I did it. When I look at the project, in Supercard, I don't see this menu or item.
I remember, vaguely, something about putting together that it was made in SC, etc.
Any hints as to where to look about this? I am not finding anything in the user manual though maybe I don't know the right words to use.

The about box you see is generated automatically in standalones. If you wish to override this behavior you can:

Code: Select all
on display what
 if what is "about" then
  --open your about window here
 end if
end display
