SUMMARY

The FoxPro 2.5 for MS-DOS and Windows "Language Reference" (page L3-250), the FoxPro 2.0 for MS-DOS "Commands & Functions" manual, and the Visual FoxPro online Help incorrectlystate that the BROWSE IN SCREEN command places a Browse window on the desktop in FoxPro for MS-DOS or in the main window in FoxPro for Windows, even if a user-defined window is active.

Instead, to place a Browse window in the default size and location, you must also issue the NORMAL clause.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

The following series of commands illustrates this behavior:

USE <filename>
DEFINE WINDOW test FROM 1,1 TO 20,20
ACTIVATE WINDOW test
@1,1 SAY "hello" && test is the current output window
BROWSE IN SCREEN


Note that the Browse information is displayed in the window "test".

To correct this problem, issue the following series of commands:

USE <filename>
DEFINE WINDOW test FROM 1,1 TO 20,20
ACTIVATE WINDOW test
@1,1 SAY "hello" && test is the current output window
BROWSE IN SCREEN NORMAL
