When DO .MPR Is Issued, Menus Slow to Appear

ID: Q106490

The information in this article applies to:

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

When the DO .MPR command is issued, it takes longer for menus to appear in FoxPro for Windows than in FoxPro for MS-DOS because the menus are being displayed in a grahical environment. This process can be sped up visually by doing the following in the Menu Builder:

1. Insert HIDE MENU _MSYSMENU in the Menu Setup code. 2. Insert SHOW MENU _MSYSMENU in the Menu Cleanup code. 3. Comment out the text merge line \SET SYSMENU AUTOMATIC in


NOTE: Because this procedure requires a change in GENMENU.PRG, it is not supported. However, commenting out SET SYSMENU TO AUTOMATIC will not affect most applications since FoxPro for Windows sets SYSMENU to AUTOMATIC by default.
