handler mainForm.onopen() {
// TODO: handle onopen event


How do I set my mainForm background color to black?



}

handler mainForm.onopen() {
Draw draw;

draw.attachForm(this);
draw.begin();
draw.fg(255);
draw.rect(clrFG, 0, 0, 160, 160, 0);
draw.end();
}

i think if you do the above, the form will be drawn in black only once, at its opening event. Anytime something displays on top like a dialog the form will show a white rectangle once that is gone.
Better put those draw commands into the ondraw event, that way redrawing of the black background gets called automatically anytime anything needs to be redrawn on the form.

Thank you very much guys that's exactly what I needed to know.

I experimented with the sample just like it is and the "about" screen left black underneath and was ok, but yes a button when selected and moved by changing x,y coordinates did leave white beneath. That's ok for what I needed though so thanks much!!!
