Is there a way to change screen size to 120 columns ( more than 80) inside a clipper app?


RE: changing screen size

By using the


command before starting your application, or using the


function from your app, and using the MAXROW/MAXCOL functions where appropriate.

RE: changing screen size

I have already tried this. When I give mode con cols=120 from a command prompt it does increases the window size. But within the app, it comes back to normal 25x80. setmode(25,120) or 24x120 also does not work. Do I need to do any setting for video driver etc.

hit ctrl-enter on the dos prompt

it doesnt work. maxcol() gives 79 only whichever way I try. I think clipper can not address more then 80 cols. it does work for 40 cols though. :(
Thanks for suggestions.
