I'm maintaining a very old FoxPlus application which was originally developed in dBase II. We now want to add a memo field to an @say screen. I can access the memo field by CTRL-PgDn when I'm in EDIT mode from the dot prompt. What I am unable to do is access the memo field when it is displayed by @ say/get withing a program. CTRL-PgDn just sends me out of the screen. Does anyone remember how to display and access memo fields from an @say screen?
From the FoxBase Plus help files here's a suggestion:
Format: SET FORMAT TO [<file>]
This SET command accesses custom-designed display formats for
use with APPEND, EDIT, INSERT, READ, etc.
If <file> is omitted from this SET command, the currently
active format file is deactivated. The default extension for
<file> is .FMT.
Multi-page format files may be created by placing a READ
command at the end of each page. There is a maximum of 128
screens per format file. PgUp and PgDn keys may then be used
to move from screen to screen within the format file. When
using READ with a format file, it is possible to edit MEMO
fields. (Normally, READ cannot access MEMO fields.)
