if the path name is too long, doesn't matter which way you shorten it.. the printer name, you are best to actually be a shared printer, and shorten the network name

RE: OPAL to DISPLAY QB Tool
Thanks Jay,  but you misunderstood the question.  I dont need the text,  I need the designer to open and display for a query that was pre-designed and saved. In OPAL, var Q Query endvar q.readfromfile("c:\\temp\\somequery.qbe") ; now, i want q.displaydesigner() or q.restructure(), or menuaction.newquery(q) or any other of things I haven't found thanks, Jeff

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

Forms Event Model Confusion
I have never found just the right combination of events for the following situation. In the following argument..... "C:\Program Files (x86)\Paradox\Programs\pdxwin32.exe" -c -q -pE:\OutsourceWork\V11\priv -wE:\OutsourceWork\V11 _stub.fsl Paradox will launch and display the _stub.fsl   form (no problem) When the form opens I want specific code to run AFTER the form is fully displayed. Two question 1.  How do I WAIT until the form is fully displayed 2. What event should I put the code in? My current problem is that there are 5-10 function calls that take place, each displaying results in a list on the screen.  And regardless of how many SLEEP() I put in the thing it will not display the form until about  halfway through the code execution. Sometimes only flickering onto the screen briefly before closing. Many thanks!

Private Path
Does anyone know if DURING the install of Paradox (v11),  whether any paths are saved in some hidden/buried config file? This is the issue.  I have a user (Win 10,  PDOX 11) whose software is not acting normally.  while instigating I decided to run table repair.  However,  when table repair launches it throws an error regarding the ERRORS.DB table in the blahblah\pdxpriv folder.  Only the path it is barfing up is not the the private folder that is set/configured in paradox.   Wondering where it is finding this erroneous path. Thanks jeff

depending on how you install and how you configure the bde, there can be any number of entries in the registry.. with p11, there are also the potential conflicts of not clearing that stupid reg cleaner thing from the machine and the registry.. what you see is NOT always what you get

formatted memo question
I have a form field which I would like to use to modify a formatted memo table field without giving the user direct access to the underlying table.  I can get the table field to display in the form field, but when I try to update it the formatting doesn't seem to work.  (tab and enter keys take me out of the form field).  I have tried both undefined and defined field creation and the only difference is that I have to press F9 when entering text into the defined field version.  How do I enter formatted text into this field?

OK.  The Shift F2 makes it work like I thought it should.  I'm sure that that is somewhere in the reference manual and I've been glossing over it.  I'll need to include a text reminder on the screen above the field in order to have the users update the field properly, :-)  but that's no biggie.  Thanks for the help.

F:\IDAPI\BDE\idapi.cfg that way, they're all pointing to one file.. if you change anything, you only change it once in THAT file, make sure it says the net file is in that same folder, too

external connectivity issues (printing, MAPI email, etc) can change with the versions.. p11 is the same, but the suite is different, , also, if you're using full paradox, a runtime patch isn't related to using that

Paradox 10 "invalid alias"
When I try to export a database, ( File | Export ) I am getting a cryptic "invalid alias" message in the message bar. No further info. I must have screwed up my settings somewhere and cannot find what alias it is referring to. My :priv: and :work: aliases are working fine.

Cottage.. there is only one active cfg file at a time.. unless you're actually deploying multiple configurations, depending on which client/app you're working on, having more than one can create oppotunities for confusion the first two, the "bars" configs, are for the toolbars.. yes, if they get hosed, they can be deleted

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

Does Paradox have macro substitution?
I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
