PRB: Macros Using CTRL+ALT+SHIFT Cause Menu to Disappear
The information in this article applies to:
Macros that use the keystroke combination CTRL+ALT+SHIFT will cause the Command window as well as the FoxPro menu to disappear while the keys are held down.
To correct this problem, add OUTSHOW=OFF to the CONFIG.FP or CONFIG.FPW file.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
1. Record any new macro with the CTRL+ALT+SHIFT (and a letter)
2. Save the macro, return to the Command window, and invoke the macro.
The menu as well as the Command window will disappear as long as the keys are pressed.
To correct this problem: 1. Open the CONFIG.FP (or CONFIG.FPW) file and set OUTSHOW=OFF.
2. Restart FoxPro and try again. When you invoke the macro, the menu
and window will remain on screen.
