"ENTER" key -dBase III Plus-

Hi everybody,

how to detect in a code if the "ENTER" key -chr(27)- was pressed? (dBase III Plus)

Thanks for the help.

RE: "ENTER" key -dBase III Plus-

You can make an internet search for DBASE LASTKEY or DBASE INKEY and you will find tables listing the values returned for a keypress or a keypress with an ALT, CTRL or SHIFT keys. So tables will have 4 columns of values. INKEY() and LASTKEY() are functions that can read or recall which key was pressed.


? LASTKEY() && Enter=13, Esc=27 


   * code

Sorry to write chr(27) instead of 13, my memory fails sometimes.
