In general, to delete a screen element, select and edit the properties of the element, then enter an at-sign (@) at the first field of the ScreenMan form.
To delete a field, select the field by pressing <SpaceBar> or over the caption of the field, press <PF4> to invoke the form to edit the properties of the field, and then enter an at-sign (@) at the "FIELD ORDER:" prompt.
Similarly, to delete a block, select the block on the Block Viewer Screen, press <PF4> to invoke the form to edit block properties, and enter an at-sign (@) at the "BLOCK NAME:" prompt. Answer YES to the warning that deletions are done immediately. If the block is not used on any other forms, the Form Editor also asks whether you want to delete the block from the BLOCK file. If you choose not to delete the block from the BLOCK file, you can subsequently delete the block only by running the ScreenMan option "PURGE UNUSED BLOCKS."
To delete a page, make that page the current page (see Going to Another Page), press <PF4>P to invoke the form to edit page properties, and enter an at-sign (@) at the "PAGE NUMBER:" prompt.
You cannot delete a form from the Form Editor. To delete a form, exit the Form Editor and perform the following steps from the VA FileMan menu:
Select OPTION: OTHER OPTIONS Select OTHER OPTION: SCREENMAN Select SCREENMAN OPTION: ? Answer with SCREENMAN OPTION NUMBER, or NAME Choose from: 1 EDIT/CREATE A FORM 2 RUN A FORM 3 DELETE A FORM 4 PURGE UNUSED BLOCKS Select SCREENMAN OPTION: DELETE A FORM
See the "ScreenMan Menu Options" section for more information on this menu option.
