The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxBASE+ for Macintosh 2.01



This article was previously published under Q103834

SUMMARY

According to the "Commands & Functions" manual for FoxBASE+/Mac, use of the style metacharacter (<) followed by "B", "I", "U", "O", or "S" causes a menu to have the style that corresponds to the letter used. This information applies only to menu options (the choices on a menu popup), not to the main menu bar. If the style metacharacter is used with the main menu bar, the "<" and the letter following it will be placed on the menu bar.

NOTE: The letters following the style metacharacter must be in uppercase.

EXAMPLE

 *PROGRAM FILE NAME "TEST.PRG"
        SET PROCEDURE TO TEST.PRG
        MENU BAR "Position<S;Record;Utilites"
        MENU 2,"Open/O<S<B;Close<I;(-;(Continue;Locate/L<O"
        x=.f.
        ON MENU DO MENUPROC WITH MENU(0), MENU(1)

        DO WHILE .NOT. X
             READ
