Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • OnKey for F6 doesn't work

    I have an onkey script to use the function keys F1-F12. F1-F5 and F7-F12 work fine. However F6 will not work. Does F6 have some special use that cannot be overridden?
    Here is a small portion of my code:

    IF a_user.key.value = "{F5}" THEN
    a_user.key.handled = .T.
    IF a_user.key.event = "down" THEN
    tbl.change_begin()
    tbl.TB_TEST_DUE=calc->vdate5
    tbl.change_end(.t.)
    sys_send_keys("{home}{down}")
    END IF
    END IF

    IF a_user.key.value = "{F6}" THEN
    a_user.key.handled = .T.
    IF a_user.key.event = "down" THEN
    tbl.change_begin()
    tbl.TB_TEST_DUE=calc->vdate6
    tbl.change_end(.t.)
    sys_send_keys("{home}{down}")
    END IF
    END IF

    F5 works but not F6. If I change F6 to ctrl-F6 it works okay but I would much prefer to use just F6. Any ideas?

        Thanks everyone for the quick reply! I had done a search on the forum but missed the answers that were already posted.

          Is this still true in v11? Because the documentation and wiki help shows the F1 key able to be trapped. However I can't seem to get it to work.
          Code:
          if (a_user.key.value = "{F1}") then
          	a_user.key.handled = .t.
          	if (a_user.key.event = "down") then
                          b_help.activate()
          		b_help.push()
          	end if
          end if

            have you tried it in V11, for F1? if so, does it work?
            I doubt the F6 key will work, even back in 4.0 it didn't (circa late 1998)

              Re: OnKey for F6 doesn't work

              Hi Martin,
              It is the F1 key I tried (above), as well as the F2 in v11. I am also having trouble with record list drop down combo boxes. All things that were working in v10.5... I'm still looking for other errors in my form. But the drop down was causing the look up table to remain open. When I changed that to a simple list the open table error went away.

              They ought to let someone beta test the help documentation...if these errors are that old!

              Edit: Also when I saved the combo box to the control library it threw a 'class' error when I tried to use one that was working onto another form.

                Robin,

                Documentation errors can (and should) be reported using the formal bug report sequence.

                  Tom I think the problem with saving the control library objects anyway, may be that they must be created in v11. I am bringing my apps from v10.5 into v11 and think the drop down problem might be stemming from that as I am redesigning existing forms from an older version. I will try it on a new form and if the drop down doesn't work then I will report it.
