dBASE Plus 188.8.131.52 (Build 1905x)
Critical Bug Fixes for dBASE Plus 2.6
October 5, 2006
This is a special bug fix patch release for dBASE Plus 184.108.40.206 b1899.
This release, dBASE Plus 220.127.116.11 b1905x, fixes critical bugs as described
in the detailed notes included below.
Fixed GPF that occurred when changing the PrinterName property of a printer,
or after selecting a specific printer with a print dialog
Fixed lockup that occurred if printer.choosePrinter() was called more than once
after changing printer.printerName.
Entryfield and SpinBox Classes
Added ability to use a percent sign (%) placeholder in the right-most position of the picture property (when datalinked to a numeric field), so that the percent sign can be displayed at the right end of numeric fields.
Fixed regression that caused the the spinbox to initially increment a value
when its down arrow is clicked.
Fixed a problem when using the 'R' formatting code in the function property
and a picture property template of ‘99999’, in which a 1 in the leftmost position
of the field would be lost when tabbing to next field. The resulting value
would display as ‘00000’.
Fixed two problems that occurred when using the 'R' formatting code in the
Fixed problem where digits entered in a numeric entryfield were lost
because the actual characters displayed during data entry were not a
valid numeric value. The entryfield was changed so that if the ‘R’
formatting code is specified and the picture property contains a
valid template for a numeric value, then numeric data entry rules
are enforced. For example, with 'R' in the function property, and '999.99'
in the picture property, entering the four characters, '9.12', from the
left end of the entryfield would display as '9.1.2', which becomes 9.10
when it is converted to a numeric value (after pressing the enter key or
tabbing to the next field). This happened because the entered decimal point
did not automatically align with the placeholder decimal point from the
picture property, so the second decimal point and all characters to the
right of it were ignored when the string was converted to a numeric value.
Fixed the processing of numeric picture characters '9', ‘#’, '*', '$' to
only allow '-' or '+' to be entered at the left end of an entryfield or
Fixed regression to treeview’s borderStyle property so that
changing it from its default value no longer causes flickering.
Also fixed lockup that occurred when changing it via the Inspector
in the Form Designer. This problem was caused by the fix for QAID: 5287.
XP Theme Support
When the mouse enters a XP style push button (turning it orange), XP sends
a paint message to the form text component. The painting of non-transparent text
was done directly to the screen and caused flickering. The text painting code is
now changed to do most painting operations off screen.
Disabled combobox (simple or dropDown styles) with XP style had black background
behind the list items. The background brush and text background of a disabled
combobox are now white.
Fixed systemTheme speedBar pushButton so that clicking it with the mouse does not
take focus from control that currently has focus. This occurred with editor and
entryField components among others..
Fixed problem in the Form Designer, when pasting a shape or line component
onto an XP themed notebook, the pasted shape or line were invisible.
Fixed painting of line objects so that the ends of the lines do not bleed-through
to a new page when changing the current page for a form or notebook.
Fixed bug where setting a component to be transparent while its parent form
is set to a pageno greater than 1 and the component is set to a different
pageno caused the component to display on the current form page.
SAVE … LIKE / LIKE() / LIKEC()
Fixed regression that caused SAVE TO ALL LIKE
to save variables that should have been excluded by the LIKE clause.
Also fixed related problems in the LIKE() and LIKEC() functions that
could lead to these functions reporting incorrect matches between a
supplied skeleton expression and a test string.
Fixed a problem that occurred when a non-default mouse pointer
(also called the mouse cursor) was chosen for a form. Clicking any
mouse button on the form surface (not on a component on the form)
caused the mouse pointer to change to an arrow until the mouse was moved.
This problem could also be seen when any of the mouse buttons was released
(mouse up) after holding a button down, moving the mouse slightly to restore
the selected pointer, and then releasing the button.
Table View - Context Menu
Fixed problem that caused the wrong context menu to display when
running dBASE Plus with a manifest file, opening a table from the
Tables tab of the Navigator, and right-clicking on the Table View window.
Fixed a GPF that occurred when reporting a Memory Access Violation.
