Set Range/Pattern Match
I am working with a PDX8 program which uses Wahl2Wahl's table lookups which work very well. The table lookups do not function correctly on PDX10, the up/down arrows and tab do not work. I am trying to create something similar and combining  set range and locate pattern. I can get either to work but not together. Is there a way to code in such a way that the setRange is the default but the user can also type .. to enable the locate pattern logic? method keyPhysical(var eventInfo KeyEvent), , Var,   s  string, endVar,     doDefault,  ,      s = self.value,      ,      ;PART.setRange( self.value, self.value+"zzz" ),    ,       ignoreCaseInStringCompares(yes),       advancedWildcardsInLocate(Yes) ,       PART.locatePattern("DESC",s),   , endmethod Thanks. Steve

we did a lot of stuff with dynarrays like that dyn["this"] = "that" pre-loading lookup table values, employee/item details, etc.. copytodynarray is an easily replicated and often overlooked concept

Fonts in Win10 v1809
I just set up Paradox on a new system running the latest ver of Win 10 (1809).  My reports on the new system required a complete revision of the fonts used in the report.  I've been using the same ones for years and the fonts have always migrated to the new system.  This time, however, the fonts are not available in the properties, font drop down for any of the fields in my report.  The fonts are installed in the usual place and are available to the other myriad programs.  I installed Paradox from an X9 disc which I know doesn't make a difference.  I even uninstalled Paradox from the system and reinstalled using the X8 disc in the hope that it would make a difference.  It, of course, did not.  I am using other fonts that provide a similar impact.  But, not the same. Any body have any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Karen

Export All Custom ObjectPal Code?
Hi, It's probably asking a lot, but is there some way to get a nicely formated (indented) document  listing all the ObjectPAL attached to a form?  Thanks for reading

 Thank you, Steven, that's awesome.  Of course I feel stupid that the capability is built in to the language itself and I didn't find it.  I was looking for it in the ui, but alas, it was burried in the 1000+ pages of paper manuals I got (and still have) w/ Borland Paradox For Windows in '93.  Ah those were the days ;-)

file/open the library program/compile file/save simple, and nothing will change.. but.. if the forms scripts and reports are all delivered (fdl not fsl, rdl not rsl, etc), you have to recompile EVERYTHING

PDOX11 over MSSQL (ODBC) - Schema in Table Names
Might anyone here know a way to configure ODBC/SQLEXPRESS under the BDE to return table names without a schema prefix (i.e., tablename rather than dbo.tablename)? Should I be looking at a different SQL DB?  Ideally, I’d like to point the alias that currently references the main paradox database to one referencing tables ported to sql and look at what needs fixing from there.  Thanks to a tool created and shared on codeproject by one of the forum members (thanks Igor!), database conversion to SQLEXPRESS went surprisingly easily, with only a few minor field type changes needed across hundreds of tables. I’m connecting to the SQL db fine from paradox via odbc. That said, I’ll consider a different back end (Firebird? PostgreSQL?) if it means the Paradox app will require fewer changes; I’m dealing with many forms and lots of code and porting the back end is a step toward a full conversion away from Paradox. Thanks! John
