How can I excute more lines of code from command wndow as if it is a PRG? by ramani
Posted: 6 Oct 03

When you see a full form code or a full PRG in these FAQ section or in a thread or whereever, and you want to test it quikly without creating a PRG, you can follow the method described here.

1. Have the code selected and cut into your clipboard.
2. To identify the nnn number of lines starting position in the command window, simply type
******************** and press <CR>
3. Then Press Ctrl+C to copy the clipboard content into your VFP command window.

4. Now the trick is, dont press any <CR> or Enter Key.

Instead select the text you just copied.. for this.. as usual.. Hold down the ShitKey and Press the Uparrow
.. until you reach the demarcation line you made in step2.

5. Now simply press enter.

VFP will run all the codes one by one as if it is a PRG with these code.

This reads long... but quite simple to follow.
