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

I will take a stab at it, Unfortunately,I am on vacation this week. , send a a few sample records, as well as a rough count on how many records you will be searching. I will use that info to create something. Keep in mind, I have never done this, I only presume that I can do it, AND since I have a similar issue will give it a shot. , Jeff

Navigation buttons disabled
I recently upgraded from Paradox 7 to Paradox 11.0.0.676. On one of the forms, the navigation buttons are disabled, yet I am able to scroll through the records using the wheel mouse. Any ideas on what may cause the navigation buttons to be disabled? P.S. I am new to Paradox. Thanks, Gary

Unknown internal operating system error
I cut and paste images into an image field on a Paradox form and I've been doing this with no problems for years; yesterday I got a message saying 'Unknown internal operating system error' with a reference to the .MB file, when I tried to paste an image in. Paradox hung. After restarting, I verified and rebuilt the table and it imported the image ok but when I tried to do it with a new record the same thing happened. I'm using Paradox 10.0.0.663 running on a Lenovo laptop with Vista Home Premium and Service Pack 2. The database has 121,900 records in it but not all of them have images. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.,

Thanks!  I've used ChimneySweep before (probably have a license for it!), but I'd forgotten about it.  Thanks for the heads-up/reminder!  I'll check it out.  (As I recall, it was very useful in fixing things that the built-in "fixer" couldn't fix.  I'll try to dig it up & see what it can do with these memo fields!) Thanks again! Aloha, -pt

Forms - Cursor Position Changed
Currently using Paradox 11.0.0.663 - Have an existing input form and have experienced a change this week for one user in the way the cursor is positioned when pressing F2 edit.  For all other users when F2 is pressed the cursor positions itself at the beginning of the field.  For this user upon pressing F2 the cursor is positioned at the end of the field.  I have been unable to find a solution to return the cursor to it's normal position (at beginning of field) upon edit.  I am sure it was a sequence of key strokes hit.  Closing out Paradox does not return cursor to correct position.

Mouse WHEEL Movement
In PDOX 8,  the mouse wheel had no impact on the paradox environment,  It just didn't work. Now in PDOX 11,  the mouse wheel is allowing users to scroll off of the record they should be Adding/Editing.  The user is then focused on a blank screen. Is there a way to trap that event?  I dont see any clues in the help doicument when it comes to scrolling mouse wheels. Currently I use the KeyPhysical event to prevent users from using the arrow keys to move from record to record,  but does not prevent the MOUSE action

in many situations, an empty table can cause an error when you try to address it's field values, especially if you're in View mode and there isn't actually a record there.. it's more obvious when you scan an empty or filtered table

Splash screen shows then Pdox dies
We've got an intermittent problem when launching Paradox9. The splash screen will show briefly and then go away completely. Any clue? We haven't installed any of the service packs but are pursuing that angle. We're on a WAN & this has 'infected' some but not all sites & is obviously growing concern. Thanks for any hints., , Solberg.Marvin@pbgc.gov

Corrupt Form... Now what?
Hello, I run Paradox 9 SP4 with Win 10. After some diagnostic errors that had me deeply concerned, I just discovered that problems I am having occur only when I try to modify a particular form. (Whew...) That form has nothing on it other than about a dozen buttons, and I have to occasionally tweak some of the button code. Starting earlier today, I found that whenever I clicked to save, or check syntax, for code on any of the buttons, Paradox would crash. Saving code on objects on other forms works just fine. So, that would seem to indicate that the form in question is somehow corrupted. I guess that I could create a new form, draw in those buttons, and cut & paste in their code. But is there a better approach to correcting the problem I am describing? Sincere thanks, Lothar

Hi Steve, I had thought that the error might be spurious, but just discovered that it was not... In one of the Var-EndVar blocks, I had selectPrinter as a string. Removing that eliminated the error. As always, many thanks, Lothar

add stuff to the CLOSE event on the form.. or, disable it completely with this on the MenuAction event on the form if eventinfo.id() = MenuControlClose then disabledefault return endif if you disable it completely, then they have to push your button, or select from your menu, etc

Form opening a form and changing working directory
Is this tough to do? Presently we are launching forms from one form but then the orginal form closes. Also we are manually having to set the working directory for each form. Obviously we would like control to return to the menu after the launched form closes and the working directory set back to what it was before. I'm using Paradox 8.00.174.

Possible to bind a blank form to a table?
I'm pretty new to Paradox, using Paradox 10., , I'm curious whether you have to use an expert to bind a form to table, or whether you can create a blank form and then modify the table property. , , The table property of a blank form has a little lock graphic by it, which I assume means it's locked or readonly. So is there any way to modify it? Or must I create a form with an expert?, , Oh, I also realize I can create the form using a Data Model and get a blank form bound to a table., , But what I'm curious about is whether I can change the data source in the properties menus directly. Seems like I should be able to. But I can't figure out how., , Thanks,, , Herb Sitz

Form not saving
First time post here.  I have a form with a main table "contact", it works fine.  Has run fine for years. I recently added in another linked table "school", one to one.  I can make changes and edit, but none of the edits to any "school" fields will be saved.  Edits to the "contact" table are saved.  I have the same "contact" and "school" tables working on other forms just fine.  I have verified the tables as well. What do ya'll suggest I look at?

Bar code readers are usually just keyboard wedges. Meaning, they emulate keyboard presses so no extra coding is needed. Let me know if you're doing something special; otherwise, no special coding needed.

Convert a V11 form back to 7.5????
Has anybody found a way to save a V11 form back to a version 7.5 form? I work in both platforms and inadvertantly saved something important as 11 that I need as 7.5. If anyone has an idea, I am all ears. Thanks

I didn't have any luck converting back To 7.5 I ended up cutting and pasting from the v11 to an old copy of the v7.5, which worked ok. But, I had to copy each object separately. If I tried multiples, they would loose all the text labels.
