No Check Marks Next to Menus in FoxPro for Windows

ID: Q103598

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

Check marks cannot be placed next to menu pads in FoxPro for Windows because of compliance with the Windows and Common User Access (CUA) interface. For example, the following code will cause a "^" to appear next to the menu pad in FoxPro for MS-DOS but not in FoxPro for Windows:

   DEFINE PAD test OF _msysmenu PROMPT "test" MARK "^"
   SET MARK OF PAD test OF _msysmenu TO .t.

For more information on CUA, query on the following words here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  definition and cua and saa
