Browse Flicker in FoxPro for Windows Under Windows 3.0

ID: Q104353

2.50 2.50a WINDOWS kbprg

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

When FoxPro for Windows is running under Windows 3.0, the Browse window flickers when it first comes up. This flicker is not as apparent under Windows 3.1.

The flicker occurs because the screen is repainted twice on the initial display of a Browse window. This behavior is more apparent in Windows 3.0 than in Windows 3.1 because:

  • Windows 3.0 is slower overall than Windows 3.1 in repainting the screen.
  • The font the user is working with may need to be created programmatically in Windows 3.0.
