FIX: ACTIVATE POPUP...REST Does Not Work Correctly
2.50 MS-DOS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist
The information in this article applies to:
The ACTIVATE POPUP <popupname> REST command does not correctly position the record pointer in the 16-bit product (Standard version) when an index file is active.
USE customer && Create an index on company. SET ORDER TO 1 DEFINE POPUP test FROM 2,3 TO 10,15 PROMPT FIELD COMPANY GOTO 50 ACTIVATE POPUP test REST DEACTIVATE POPUP test
In the 16-bit product, the record pointer will be positioned on the first record--it should be positioned on record number 50. In the 32-bit product (Extended version), the record pointer is positioned correctly.
Do not use an index file. To correct the problems with the example above, use SET ORDER TO 0 or use FoxProX.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro version 2.5 for MS-DOS. This problem was corrected in FoxPro version 2.5a for MS-DOS.
