PRB: Lines, Borders, Boxes, Etc., Don't Appear in Screen

ID: Q102594

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a


Lines, borders, boxes, circles, and ellipses created with the @ ... TO PEN command (such as those created with the Screen Designer) do not appear when the screen is executed.


If SET("BORDER")="NONE", items created with @ ... TO PEN will not appear when the screen is executed.


To restore the default borders, issue the SET BORDER TO command without any additional arguments.


The SET BORDER command defines a border for popups created with DEFINE POPUP and for windows created with DEFINE WINDOW.

When FoxPro is started, the default border for FoxBASE+ style popups is a double line. All other objects (windows, popups created with DEFINE POPUP, and so on) default to a single-line border. If you issue SET BORDER TO SINGLE or SET BORDER TO DOUBLE, all objects, including FoxBASE+ style popups, are drawn with a single- or double-line border, respectively. In FoxPro for Windows, the DOUBLE option creates a PANEL border for popups and windows; the <border string> option is ignored.

NOTE: SET BORDER does not affect boxes created with the @ ... BOX command.
