FIX: SET REFRESH Incorrectly Moves Pointer in Child Browse
2.50a | 2.50a MS-DOS | WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist
The information in this article applies to:
In a child Browse window of a one-to-many relationship, the record pointer returns to the first record in the child table after the amount of time specified in the SET REFRESH value. This problem occurs only if SET REFRESH is greater than zero.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5a for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5a for Windows. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5b for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5b for Windows.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
1. Enter the following lines of code in a .PRG file:
****Begin Program Example**** SET EXACT OFF SET REFRESH TO 3 CLOSE ALL USE c:\foxprow\tutorial\customer.dbf SELECT B USE c:\foxprow\tutorial\invoices.dbf SET ORDER TO cno SELECT customer SET RELATION TO cno INTO invoices LOCATE FOR company = "Atec" BROWSE LAST NOWAIT SELECT invoices BROWSE LAST NOWAIT ACTIVATE WINDOW customer WAIT WINDOW "Please select the other browse, arrow down " + ; "once or twice" + chr(13) + "And watch... the record " + ; "pointer jumps to the top." ****End Program Example****
2. Run the program and move to the second or third record in the child
window using the DOWN ARROW key. The record pointer will return to the first record after the time allotted in the SET REFRESH command.
