How Clock Check Box in View Window Affects Clock Position

ID: Q107827

The information in this article applies to:

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

The setting of the Clock check box affects whether the clock is displayed and whether it is displayed in the status bar. Setting the row and column positions causes the clock to be displayed in the FoxPro desktop.

The placement of the clock will vary based on which options have been chosen, and in what order:

  • If the numbers have not been changed in the Row and Column boxes, and the Clock check box is not selected, selecting the Clock check box causes the clock to appear in the status bar. The following command appear in the Command window:

          SET CLOCK STATUS
  • If the numbers have not been changed in the Row and Column boxes, and the Clock check box is selected, selecting the Clock check box causes the clock to disappear from the status bar or from the desktop. The following command appears in the Command window:

          SET CLOCK OFF
  • If the Clock check box is not selected, and row and column positions are entered, the clock appears in the desktop and the Clock check box is automatically selected. The following command appears in the Command window

          SET CLOCK TO <row>,<column>

    where <row> and <column> are the numbers entered in the appropriate boxes in the View window. If the Clock check box is then cleared, the following command appears in the Command window:

          SET CLOCK OFF
  • If the Clock check box is selected when the clock is in the status bar, and row and column positions are entered, the clock appears in the desktop. The following command appears in the Command window

          SET CLOCK TO <row>,<column>

    where <row> and <column> are the numbers entered in the appropriate boxes in the View window. If the Clock check box is then cleared, the following command appears in the Command window:

          SET CLOCK OFF
  • If the row and column positions are entered as 0,0, the clock will appear in the top-left corner of the desktop. Setting the row and column positions to zero will not cause the clock to appear in the status bar. The check box must be turned off and then back on to cause the clock to appear in the status bar.
