Key Board not responding

Key Board not responding

Key Board not responding

When ever i try to write

set filt to prt_no=

The keyboard freezes and does not accept any input on that command window. and i cannot write any other commands.
I want to complete the command to

set filt to prt_no= 'XYZ'

I am using VFP 9.0 with windows 10
The keyboard works fine on any other application.


RE: Key Board not responding

Your foxcode.dbf might be broken. At the moment you type = VFPs intellisense looks at what you typed so far to decide, whether it can show you options for what you set. This is not the case here, but the mechanism still runs and fails, if foxcode.dbf got corrupted. This has nothing to do with keyboard drivers or functionality.

Start VFP new, go into Tools->Intellisense Manager. Activate the Advanced tab, click on Restore FoxCode and that DBF should be replaced with a fine version again.

Bye, Olaf.

RE: Key Board not responding

OlafDoschke That did the trick thanks very much for your help.

RE: Key Board not responding

You're welcome, I already had the infamous fatal C5 errors because of that. It took me a while to realize it happens at moments intellisense would become active. Intellisense is triggered by a few things besides =, also space and point are characters, that hint on the next part of the current command or function may come from intellisense support of any kind.

I'm glad I could reduce your time to figure that out.

Bye, Olaf.
