How to Place a Triangular Marker in DBF-Style Help File

ID: Q101013

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

Page D14-6 in the "Developer's Guide" provides instructions for marking topics in a Help file with a triangular marker and a square bullet. The instructions for inserting the square bullet are correct; however, the instructions for inserting the triangular marker are not.

According to the documentation, pressing ALT+16 places a triangular marker in the topic field. However, the triangular markers are visible when browsing the database if the browse font is set to FoxFont. To avoid this problem, use the following command to insert triangular markers:

   REPLACE topic with CHR(16)+" "+"text for topic field"
