Q61338: Docerr in MenuSet and MenuSetState in UI Toolbox of PDS 7.00
Article: Q61338 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 7.10 | 7.00 7.10 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900412-65 docerr | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-JAN-1991 Pages 546 and 547 of the "Microsoft BASIC 7.0: Language Reference" for Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) versions 7.00 and 7.10 incorrectly state that the subroutine MenuSetState treats -1 as a legal value for the parameter state%. The lowest legal value for state% is 0. This is the scope of the MenuSetState routine. The MenuSet subroutine should be called to remove an item from a menu. The MenuSet subroutine, on Pages 545 and 546 of the same manual, is also documented incorrectly because the lowest legal value of MenuSet is actually -1, not 0. To make a menu item or menu title disappear, you must call MenuSet with state% equal to -1.
