PRB: SET SYSMENU OFF Relocates Row 0 & Causes Screen "Jumping"
The information in this article applies to:
The screen "jumps" when the SET SYSMENU OFF command is issued.
Row 0 is below the menu bar in FoxPro for Windows instead of "behind" the menu bar as it is in FoxPro for MS-DOS. This difference occurs because there is no client area for FoxPro for Windows to write on behind the menu bar.
Therefore, the screen "jumps" when SET SYSMENU OFF is issued because row 0 relocates to the region where the system menu used to reside.
To avoid the screen jumping effect, use SET SYSMENU TO instead of SET SYSMENU OFF.
Steps to Reproduce Behavior
@ 0,0 SAY "Hello" FOR cnt = 1 to 10 SET SYSMENU OFF SET SYSMENU AUTO ENDFOR
