SET BLINK Is for Use with FoxPro for MS-DOS Only

ID: Q106691

The information in this article applies to:

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

Page L3-881 of the "Language Reference" incorrectly states that the SET BLINK command is for use with FoxPro for Windows only. It should say instead that SET BLINK is for use with FoxPro for MS-DOS only. Since FoxPro for Windows uses pixels, not characters, it cannot turn on the blink attribute for each pixel.

Additional reference words: FoxDos FoxWin 2.50 2.50a 2.50b color docerr KBCategory: kbprg kbdocerr KBSubcategory: FxprgGeneral
