Preventing Sending Output to Screen
by DevX Pro
I am trying to send a text file that I have made from my report to the printer. The code is: REPORT FORM neto ASCII TO FILE pom.txt set headings off TYPE auto pom.txt TO PRINTER This sends the file POM.TXT to the printer but also displays the file on the currently active window. I don't know how to avoid displaying the file; I just want to send it to the printer.
Query Returning Case-Insensitive Matches
by DevX Pro
Using ASP and ODBC, I can query Microsoft Access databases using the "Like" operator with the wildcard %, such as: Select * from customers where lastname Like '%jon%' The query returns case-insensitive matches (Jones, jones, etc.) When using the "Like" operator with a Visual FoxPro query, however, the query returns case-sensitive matches (jones, but not Jones). How can I duplicate the case-insensitive query when using the FoxPro database?

Deleting a Record
by DevX Pro
I am currently building a VB application that needs to delete records in a .dbf field. The connection to the database is established through ADO by using a DSN.

Popping Up a Form
by DevX Pro
I have a form for which I do not want to give the user navigation privileges. I want the form to pop up at the record specified by a parameter with the "do form" command. I understand that I can pass a param with "Do form col001 with 123456" and then handle the parameter 123456 in the init event of the form. But when the form appears, it shows the top record of the file and not the one specified by the parameter. How do I make this work?

Creating 30-Day Trial Applications
by DevX Pro
I am Web site developer assisting a Visual FoxPro developer in distributing his creation via the Internet. He wants to create a 30-day trial version for distribution in this way. Does Visual FoxPro have any kind of canned modules available that would do this sort of thing or is he going to have to build it in from scratch?
File Locations
by DevX Pro
I have set Home as C:\MyApp in Project Information. VFP has no problem finding the project, but when I do a build and, while running, click a link to a form, it wants to look in the VFP directory or, since I put SET DEFAULT TO C:\MyApp in main form Activate code, it wants to look there instead of in: C:\MyApp\Forms. Doesn't VFP know to look in a Forms subdirectory for a form? I want the application to find each component (form, database, report, etc.) based on setting a single "Application Home Directory" so that when I deploy it to the target PC, I only need to change a single location setting. Is this possible? I want the application to find each component (form,database,report,etc.) based on setting a single 'Application Home Directory' so that when I deploy it to the target PC, I only need to change a single location setting. Possible?
