How to use SYS(1500) within a menu procedure by ChrisRChamberlain
Posted: 21 Jul 06 (Edited 22 Jul 06)

There may be occasions when you need to activate a Visual FoxPro system menu item from a procedure within a menu.

Taking 'Ca\<scade' from '_mwindow' as an example, by creating a procedure for this particular menu option, you negate your ability to use

CODE

SYS(1500,[_wmi_cascade],[_mwindow])
within the procedure as '_wmi_cascade' is no longer available as a 'SystemItemName'.

Quick fix - as a divider in non selectable, substitute a divider item name such as '_wmi_sp100' with '_wmi_cascade', thus ensuring it's available as a 'SystemItemName'.
