This means you can customize it in your own way--add commands, pictures, colors, place it anywhere on the screen, make it any size you want. It uses up less space and is quicker. A nice touch for Visual Basic programs. Free. Look for DIALGJB2.ZIP for latest file to download.

A Note on Year 2000 Compatibility
WinAlter can be very useful for those who need to keep track of file dates. WinAlter has been tested and is fully compatible with the year 2000. It read and writes four-digit years. There is one little problem--it cannot write the date Feb. 29, 2000. Unfortunately, this is a "bug" in the Microsoft Windows 3.1 operating system and in other software published by Microsoft compatible with Windows 3.1. We were hoping we could solve the problem, but Microsoft has not, so we cannot. All other leap days are OK--as are all other days through the capability of the operating system. (For example, WinAlter generally works through the year 2044 on a Windows 98® system).
