I have some apps made in A97, now the time has come to convert them to AXP.
No real conversion problems, except... My screen doesnt update anymore, i have a counter running on the screen doing something like so:
myCounter = myCounter + 1
me.txtDone = myCounter
if myCounter mod 5 = 0 then me.repaint
In 97 this results in my form beeing updated every 5 records, but in AXP it stops updating if the application is not "on screen". But if i minimize the app that is "on screen" lets say word... Then it doesnt start updating either....
I created an A2K db with only one form, which opens on startup.
If i click the button everyting works fine....
Except when i drag the explorer over the db, then it freezes after some time (not updating the screen => See included pic Counter.jpg)
If i then break the code, (See included pic CounterBreak.jpg) the counter has continued .... The code "Keeps on running" but the screen doesnt get updated.
Can anyone try this at thier WinXP/OfficeXP setup and see if this is specific to my local or to XP in general.
I can live without the counter, but its nice ... Some processes take a long time...
