command window too big for the screen

command window too big for the screen

command window too big for the screen

(OP)
Hi guys,

I'm having difficulties with the command window.
It seems to be outside the VFP9 window even when it's full screen.
And I cann't move the command window around.
The x for closing the window is not on the screen.

How do I get the command window in it's proper dimensions and movable?
Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks.







RE: command window too big for the screen

Are you still able to type commands in the command window?

If so, try something like this:

MOVE WINDOW "command" TO 1,1

or alternatively:

MOVE WINDOW "command" CENTER

Good luck.

Mike

Of course, another option might simply be to delete your FOXUSER files.

Thank you Mike, I'll try them both and let you know!
And yes, I'm still able to enter commands.

Mike, the MOVE WINDOW "command" TO 1,1 command did it!!!
I could then change the size of the command window (it was far too large) and then it appeared in full!

Thank you again!

RE: command window too big for the screen

It often surprises people, but indeed the command window is not a child window of _screen, it's a desktop window.
Mike showed how you can influence it by its name "command". That's also useful, if it's invisible and you only have the debugger. You can use a watch expression with _vfp.docmd('show window "command"') to make it visible.

Bye, Olaf.

Thank you Olaf!
Useful to know.
Problems with the command window are not common knowledge.
I'm a foxpro programmer since the very early days (foxpro 1.1) and I'm still using VFP(9) for programming because there is nothing like it!
