Q58102: No Beep When Clicking Outside Modal Window of WINDOW.BAS
Article: Q58102 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 7.10 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900116-127 docerr | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-JAN-1991 Using a mouse to select outside a modal window created with the WindowOpen procedure of WINDOW.BAS does not produce a beep. This is contrary to Page 575 of the "Microsoft BASIC 7.0: Language Reference" manual (for 7.00 and 7.10), which incorrectly says: When a window is modal, any attempt to select outside the window is unsuccessful and results in a beep. WINDOW.BAS is a file provided with the User Interface (UI) Toolbox in Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Versions 7.00 and 7.10 for MS-DOS. While a modal window is current, pressing certain keys generates a beep, but no beep is generated when you click outside the window with the mouse. The keys that generate a beep are as follows [Note: This list assumes a 101-key (enhanced) keyboard]: ESC UP ARROW DOWN ARROW LEFT ARROW RIGHT ARROW HOME END PGUP PGDN ENTER (on main keyboard) TAB ENTER (on numeric keypad) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (on numeric keypad)
