PRB: SET SYSMENU ON Not Working in FoxPro for Windows

ID: Q103599

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a
  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 1.02, 2.0, 2.5, and 2.5a

The SET SYSMENU ON command does not remove the system menu in FoxPro for Windows. SET SYSMENU ON was originally used in FoxBASE+ (which has no system menu); FoxBASE+ required that the ALT or F10 key be pressed to bring up the system menu.

Since all Windows-based applications have menus, the system menu will be visible in FoxPro for Windows when SET SYSMENU ON is issued. Therefore, the following commands will remove the system menu in FoxPro for MS-DOS but not in FoxPro for Windows:

   SET SYSMENU ON
   @ 2,2 GET var DEFAULT "Hello"
