PRB: "Unrecognized Command Verb" in the Screen Builder

ID: Q108197

2.50 2.50a 2.50b WINDOWS


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5, 2.5a and 2.5b


When you are executing a screen program generated with the Screen Builder, the "Unrecognized Command Verb" or "Syntax Error" error message is displayed on a GET field that contains a customized COLOR statement.


You can customize colors in the Screen Builder by adding a COLOR statement to a GET expression. For example, in the WHEN clause of a GET expression, you can add the following to modify the COLOR of disabled GET objects:

    .T. COLOR ,,,,,,,,,RGB(0,0,0,192,192,192)

If a color has already been predefined for an object using the Fill Color or Pen Color dialog box, the Screen Generator will generate two COLOR statements, causing the "Unrecognized Command Verb" error message.


To prevent this error from occurring, select the object, choose Fill Color and then Pen Color from the Object menu, and make sure that Automatic is selected in both dialog boxes.


NOTE: In Visual FoxPro, the color of an object on a form is controlled by the BackColor and ForeColor properties.
